Ilhan Omar Gets Slammed For Tweet Over Race Of Shooter When All She Has Done Is Attack Based On Race
Here is the problem and why she is facing such a backlash over this tweet. Just before this shooting, where we had the assault on the spa with a young man saying he had targeted the spa, not because Asians had worked there, rather because he was striking at sex workers due to he had mental problems, she was not going to let this stand and attacked in a tweet.
You see, here she was attacking the shooter because he was white, but now she is offended that others are focusing on the nationality of an Arab shooter? What gives? This hypocrisy we know is standard for the left today, but enough people saw this tweet that they opened up a storm of tweets attacking her double standards.
Washington Free Beacon executive editor Brent Scher blasted Omar for her tweet, saying that this “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.”
Mediaite editor Caleb Howe also took aim at Omar’s tweet, saying it was using misinformation to push a “narrative.”
RedState editor-at-large Kira Davis also weighed in, telling the congresswoman to take her own “advice.”
“This literally works both ways, [Omar] so take your own advice. Maybe that’s how we find justice instead of hyperventilating to blame each other about everything all the time,” wrote Davis. “I invite you – as a leader – to take the first step and then keep walking forward.”
Pluribus editor Jeryl Bier said that Omar’s tweet “sounds like it comes from an alternate universe.”
As is expected, the Left is wasting no time in taking advantage of this shooting and the one earlier to call for a ban on all assault weapons. Biden has pushed that this shows the need to act is now, we can no longer wait to act.
