Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is facing backlash after her racially divisive tweet following the horrendous Boulder, Colorado shooting massacre. Posted within 24 hours after the man now identified as Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa killed 10 people, Omar had this to say:
“The shooter’s race or ethnicity seems front and center when they aren’t white. Otherwise, it’s just a mentally ill young man having a bad day. Narratives drive our responses to awful crimes committed against innocent people, pay attention to these responses and who is targeted” Omar posted to her Twitter account.
Before discussing her tweet further, let’s not forget that Omar is the very person that undermined the terrorist attacks committed on September 11, 2001 when she passed it off as “some people did something.” She went even further as to say the Council on Islamic Relations (CAIR) was founded because after “some people did something,” Omar and others determined “that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”
So, while Omar cries discrimination, it is she who is perpetuating the racial rhetoric. Omar brought up the race of the Atlanta mass shooting suspect Robert Aaron Long, who is white. In her tweet, the Congresswoman wrote it isn’t “hard to understand why it’s so normalized for law enforcement to protect the humanity of white mass murderers and their willingness to continually make excuses for them.”
Washington Free Beacon executive editor Brent Scher rebuked Omar for her tweet, saying the Boulder “shooter’s race and ethnicity was front and center yesterday when we didn’t even know what it was and just assumed it was white.” It couldn’t be more obvious that it is Ilhan Omar who gets to determine whether or not one’s “race” should be mentioned.
If the criminal is white, that fact must be mentioned and everyone else must be chastised for protecting “the humanity of white mass murderers.” If the criminal is not white, however, they shall be referred to as “some people” who “did something” and then an organization must be founded to protect their civil liberties.
