Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has called for an advertising boycott of Fox News host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson, after the host made her an example of why our Immigration system is broken and dangerous, and why we need stronger vetting and enforcement.
Since Carlson’s advertisers are generally conservative, he should get a nice little revenue bump.
The Democrat lawmaker was upset that the network was giving a platform to what she called “white supremacist rhetoric.” She also called it dangerous and “hate speech.” This is coming from Rep. Omar, who has come under fire for her repeated anti-Semitic remarks and for describing the 9/11 attacks as “some people did something.” She later called Carlson a “racist fool.”
Omar may be getting more intimately involved with Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agents now that investigators are seriously looking into the allegations she married her brother to help him defraud the immigration system. It appears that the reason she was fudging her taxes was to cover up the fact she had two husbands at the same time.
Omar got her hijab in a bunch after Carlson sarcastically pointed out that the country should be “grateful” for Omar highlighting all the “flaws” in our immigration system. Fox News host referred to an article in the Washington Post where Rep. Omar attacked America as ” founded on genocide.” Carlson ripped Ilhan Omar for her unpatriotic and anti-American views.
“Omar isn’t ‘disappointed’ in America. She’s enraged by it,” Carlson argued. “Virtually every public statement she makes accuses America of bigotry and racism. ‘This is an immoral country’, she says. She has undisguised contempt for the United States and for its people.”
“That should worry you,” he added, “and not just because Omar is now a sitting member of Congress. Omar is living proof that that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country.”
She’s also attacked American troops who fought in the Battle of Mogadishu, depicted in the book and movie “Black Hawk Down.”
Omar’s attacks on Tucker Carlson demonstrate a disturbing development lately regarding free speech in our country. Numerous examples include recent attacks and threats of violence against conservative activists and speakers on college campuses.

Omar’s Democratic colleague in the House of Representatives, Fl. Congresswoman Federica Wilson said recently that those making fun of members of congress should be prosecuted.That means arrested and charged with a crime.
This is dangerous rhetoric coming from members of congress, who really do have the power to make policy and laws. Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” How timely and poignant are his words today.
Fox News is now giving a nightly platform to white supremacist rhetoric. It’s dangerous.
Advertisers should not be underwriting hate speech. https://t.co/iQdMJ0heXR
