Ilhan Omar Unleashes New Wave of Hate Against White People, Republican ‘Goons’

It feels like it’s been too long since we’ve had an Ilhan Omar bigotry story. It’s been what, a couple of weeks now?

I almost thought she had actually learned to pretend her opinions about the varieties of religious experience were within the normal range of human response or something. And she kind of has — she just let us all know she doesn’t particularly like another group of people for their immutable characteristics, either.

What’s ironic is that today’s story comes courtesy of a screed against bigotry, including Islamophobia, anti-Semitism (yes, she was able to keep a straight face) and xenophobia. That, on its face, sounds reasonable enough.

And then she remembered she was Ilhan Omar and instead decided to vilify both “white people” and “goons” in the Republican Party who she thinks don’t like her because of her race. The irony was lost on her, I’m guessing.

The Minnesota Democrat made the remarks at a Tuesday event organized by the Black Lives Matter movement titled “Black Women in Defense of Ilhan Omar,” according to NBC News.

TRENDING: Synagogue Shooter’s Comments on Trump Were 100% the Opposite of What the Media Wanted

“The occupant of the White House, as my sister [Rep.] Ayanna [Pressley] likes to call him, and his allies are doing everything that they can to distance themselves and misinform the public from the monsters that they created that is terrorizing the Jewish community and the Muslim community,” Omar said at the event, which drew “more than 100 supporters.”

In the speech, Omar lay the blame for anti-Semitic incidents like the Chabad of Poway shooting in California directly at the feet of the president.

“Because when we are talking about anti-Semitism, we must also talk about Islamophobia; it’s two sides of the same coin of bigotry,” Omar said. “Just this week, when we’ve had the attack in California on a synagogue, it’s the same person who’s accused of attempting to bomb a mosque. So I can’t ever speak of Islamophobia and fight for Muslims if I am not willing to fight against anti-Semitism.”

This event was held outdoors. I mention this only because it was a pretty risky move from Rep. Omar, given that most of the above paragraph — aside from mentioning the fact that, yes, the alleged Poway shooter was indeed both an anti-Semite and an Islamophobe — was basically inviting a lightning bolt from the Deity.

Do you think Ilhan Omar is a racist?

The courting of thunderbolts continued unabated as she prattled on about the president’s “vile attacks” against her and others, noting that his “demented views are not welcome here.”

“This is not going to be the country of the xenophobics,” she said. “This is not going to be the country of white people. This is not going to be the country of the few. This is going to be the country of the many.”

Just not the white people. Got that?

She also  demonized Republicans, insisting their problems with her have to do with her faith, her gender and her melanin quotient:

“The thing that upsets the occupant in the White House, his goons in the Republican Party, many of our colleagues in the Democratic Party is that they can’t stand, they cannot stand, that a refugee, a black woman, an immigrant, a Muslim shows up in Congress thinking she’s equal to them,” she said.

Let me state here, as a person of incredible paleness, that I don’t get offended when people fall back on “yes, you, white people!” race-baiting. I understand why some people think it’s acceptable, given a liberal/postcolonial mindset. I find it more telling and lazy than abhorrent, and I certainly don’t think it’s typically meant in the same pernicious manner that, say, anti-Semitism is.

But that’s kind of the point here: It’s being spoken by a pernicious anti-Semite who’s apparently trying to rebrand herself so that “bigot” isn’t the first thing that you associate with her.

And how is she trying to accomplish this? By specifically attacking a group of people for their race. If this was the rollout of the Ilhan Omar who sincerely cares about Jewish people, it may have been the occasion to steer clear of the “But do you know who I really can’t stand… ?” rhetoric.

Beyond that, this is a country for whites, as much as it’s a country for African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Middle Easterners, Jews, Muslims, Christians, Hindus, atheists, cisgender individuals, LGBT individuals — everyone, in fact, who believes in the ideals that made this country great.

During his unctuous, demagogic candidacy announcement last week, Joe Biden actually managed to get one thing right: America is an idea. It’s not a country based on identity — much as Biden’s Democrats try to make it that way.

Inasmuch as we haven’t lived up to that idea, we can’t make up for it by excluding people we perceive of having benefited from bigotry. Saying that “[t]his is not going to be the country of white people” and trying to make it so isn’t going to erase the history of slavery or segregation. In fact, all it does is enforce the kind of mindset that created those monsters.

Finally, it’s also eye-rollingly pathetic for Ilhan Omar to insist that her adversaries don’t like her because she’s a black female Muslim who “shows up in Congress thinking she’s equal to them.”

Yes, this has nothing to do with the fact that she repeated blatantly anti-Semitic tropes about Jews controlling American foreign policy with money or having dual loyalties to Israel. It has nothing to do with the fact she retweeted a Jewish critic who said that she “might as well call us hook-nosed” after her multitude of dog-whistles. Nothing to do with the fact that she refuses to take any responsibility for this.

In her mind — or at least in her speeches — this is all because the Republican Party is a phalanx of racist, sexist Islamophobes who went absolutely bonkers the moment she arrived at the Capitol. Right.

This would all be darkly funny were it not for the fact that this speech didn’t just happen days after the Chabad of Poway shooting but actually piggybacked upon it to impugn not just President Trump but all Republicans as being somehow complicit in it.

Instead of being darkly funny, it’s just another example of the darkness that lurks within the heart of Ilhan Omar. Americans should and do have it in their heart to forgive repentant bigots.

When it comes to the unrepentant, however — particularly the opportunistically unrepentant — we ought to have nothing but contempt.

NYT: New Details Emerge About Connection Of Bidens To Ukrainian Corruption Scandal

In a report highlighted by President Trump Wednesday, The New York Times provides new details that have emerged about Hunter Biden’s connection to a Ukrainian political corruption scandal as the government has reopened an investigation into a company which once paid Hunter as much as $50,000 a month. That company, Burisma Holdings, was being targeted by Ukraine’s top prosecutor — a prosecutor Hunter’s father, Vice President Joe Biden, pressured the Ukrainian government to remove.

Trump promoted the Times’ report by retweeting a post by co-author Kenneth P. Vogel: “NEW: The BIDENS are entangled in a Ukrainian corruption scandal:@JoeBiden pushed Ukraine to fire a prosecutor seen as corrupt,” tweeted Vogel, linking to his report. “BUT the prosecutor had opened a case into a company that was paying HUNTER BIDEN. The Bidens say they never discussed it.”

In what the Times describes as one of Biden’s “most memorable performances,” the then-vice president went to Kiev in March 2016​ and “threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss the country’s top prosecutor [Yuriy Lutsenko], who had been accused of turning a blind eye to corruption in his own office and among the political elite.”

Biden’s pressure tactic was a success; the Ukrainian Parliament soon removed Lutsenko. But, it turns out, Biden’s son may have benefited significantly by his father’s actions.

“Among those who had a stake in the outcome was Hunter Biden, Mr. Biden’s younger son, who at the time was on the board of an energy company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch who had been in the sights of the fired prosecutor general,” Vogel reports.

While Hunter Biden had some significant credentials, including a law degree from Yale and having served on the boards of Amtrak and a few nonprofit organizations and think tanks, he “lacked any experience in Ukraine and just months earlier had been discharged from the Navy Reserve after testing positive for cocaine,” Vogel notes. Despite his lack of relevant experience and drug problem, Burisma Holdings paid him “as much as $50,000 per month in some months for his work for the company.”

The Bidens have denied any wrongdoing and Joe Biden insists he never discussed the matter with his son, but the reopening of the investigation into Burisma has put the spotlight once again on the corruption scandal and the Bidens’ connection to it. The new information that has come to light, the Times reports, shows “how Hunter Biden and his American business partners were part of a broad effort by Burisma to bring in well-connected Democrats during a period when the company was facing investigations backed not just by domestic Ukrainian forces but by officials in the Obama administration.”

Hunter Biden denies having any role in shielding Burisma, whose board he was a member of from spring of 2014 until last month. “I have had no role whatsoever in relation to any investigation of Burisma, or any of its officers,” he told the Times in a statement Wednesday. “I explicitly limited my role to focus on corporate governance best practices to facilitate Burisma’s desire to expand globally.” (Read the full report here.)

As The Daily Wire reported in late March, Peter Schweizer, Government Accountability Institute president and author of bestselling book “Clinton Cash,” calls attention to the Bidens’ problematic Ukrainian involvement in his new investigative book, “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends.” Schweizer appeared on Fox News to summarize some of the book’s key findings.

Just as We Predicted: In August 2018 TGP Reported on Nellie Ohr’s Pivitol Role in the Russiagate Scandal – Yesterday She Was Criminally Referred to the DOJ

Guest post by Joe Hoft

On Wednesday Rep. Mark Meadows filed criminal charges against Nellie Ohr for lying to Congress.

We knew this day would come.

In August of 2018 we posted the following onNellie Ohr:

As the details behind the Spygate scandal are uncovered, the connections to former President Obama are unearthed.

According to Zero Hedge, the head of opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted in December 2017 in a court filing that his firm paid the wife of a senior Justice Department official to help dig up damaging information on then-candidate Donald Trump.

Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS, filed the signed declaration in a D.C. court this week affirming that Nellie Ohr, wife of demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr, was contracted by Fusion through the summer and fall of 2016 “to help our company with its research and analysis of Mr. Trump,” according to the filing. The House Intelligence Committee determined that in November 2016, Simpson met with Bruce Ohr shortly after the election to discuss their findings regarding Russia and Trump. Bruce Ohr lost his senior-level position at the DOJ as associate deputy attorney general after his meetings with Simpson and British spy Christopher Steele, who assembled the Trump-Russia dossier, were discovered.

And why would Fusion GPS hire Nellie Ohr? Aside from the obvious connection to her DOJ husband who was in a position to provide Fusion GPS with information on Trump gathered by US intelligence agencies, Nellie Ohr also represented the CIA’s “Open Source Works” group in a 2010 “expert working group report on international organized crime” along with Bruce Ohr and Glenn Simpson.

The connections between Nellie Ohr and the ‘Spygate’ scandal were hidden at a distance for months.

As noted previously at TGP, Nellie Ohr is a Communist sympathizer connected to Russia as well as a corrupt Never-Trumper.

Author Diana West at the American Spectator recently posted an article on Nellie Ohr, who they call “the “dossier” spying scandal’s woman in the middle.”

To one side of Ohr, there is the Fusion GPS team, including fellow contractor Christopher Steele. To the other, there is husband Bruce Ohr, who, until his “dossier”-related demotion, was No. 4 man at the Department of Justice, and a key contact there for Steele.

As central as Nellie Ohr’s placement is, her role in the creation of the “dossier” remains undefined. For example, the House Intelligence Committee memo on related matters vaguely tells us that Nellie Ohr was “employed by Fusion GPS to assist in the cultivation of opposition research on Trump”; the memo adds that Bruce Ohr “later provided the FBI with all of his wife’s opposition research.” Senator Lindsey Graham more sensationally told Fox News that Nellie Ohr “did the research for Mr. Steele,” but details remain scarce.

What’s more revealing about Nellie Ohr is the men in her life were protecting her and hiding her involvement in the Russia scandal:

Notably, the “dossier” men in her life have tried to shield Ohr from public scrutiny, even at professional risk. Her husband, as the Daily Caller News Foundation reports, failed to disclose his wife’s employment with Fusion GPS and seek the appropriate conflict-of-interest waiver, which may have been an important factor in his demotion from associate deputy attorney general late last year.

Under Senate and House questioning, Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson consistently failed to disclose Nellie Ohr’s existence as one of his firm’s paid Russian experts, let alone that he hired her for the red-hot DNC/Clinton campaign Trump-Russia project.

Even Christopher Steele may have tried to keep Nellie Ohr “under cover.” Steele, put forth as the “dossier” author ever since its January 2017 publication in BuzzFeed, does not appear to have let on to his many media and political contacts that he had “dossier”-assistance from at least two fellow Fusion GPS Russian experts, Nellie Ohr and Edward Baumgartner. Baumgartner, interestingly, was a Russian history major at Vassar in the 1990s when Nellie Ohr taught Russian history there.

President Trump’s attorney, former New York City Mayor, Rudy Giuliani outed former Obama CIA Director John Brennan as the man in charge of ‘Spygate’. Rudy claims Brennan orchestrated the ‘Spygate’ scandal and was the quarterback:

It appears that the men in Nellie’s life did all they could to prevent Nellie Ohr from being outed for being involved in the dossier because she also has links to the CIA and therefore to Brennan.

If Brennan is outed as the quarterback of the dossier scandal, then by association, so is his boss, former President Obama.

Now we know that communist sympathizer Nellie Ohr, and the men who surrounded her, her husband, business partners, John Brennan, and by association President Obama, were all connected. Together they attempted to prevent Candidate Trump from being elected and later to remove duly elected President Trump from office.


Yesterday Nellie Ohr was criminally referred to the Justice Department concerning her Congressional testimony!  Boom!
