Trump forces Rep. Ilhan Omar into revealing her true colors on Muslim matters
For a while there, Rep. Ilhan Omar and some of her Muslim allies in Congress were jumping up and down to condemn leftist television host Joy Reid for some "casual" anti-Muslim remarks, about "the way Muslims act."
Omar demanded an apology for the "casual Islamophobia"...
Then President Trump, master troll, got involved:
Like Fredo at Fake News @CNN, the very untalented Joy Reid should be fired for this horrible use of the words “Muslim Terrorists”. Such xenophobia and racism on MSDNC. Anyone else would be gone, and fast!!! https://t.co/a5HSIEXlQL— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 2, 2020
And just like that, Omar changed her tune:
Joy was right about one thing- you are radicalizing and inciting violence and must be condemned for it.— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) September 2, 2020
Don’t use Muslim pain to attack the talent of a strong Black woman, who has vigorously held you and your administration accountable.
We reject your fascist solidarity. https://t.co/aH42G1Qmb0
Suddenly, Reid was a "strong black woman," and Trump's condemnation of Reid's anti-Islamic ravings, identical to Omar's, was "fascist solidarity."
Funny how she changed her tune when Trump got her going, forcing her to show her true colors. Trump's always the bad guy to her, and Trump knew it, so for that, Joy Reid suddenly got lionized.
That made Omar look kind of like a shape-shifter, a phony.
To pick this apart, suddenly insults against Muslims weren't so bad after all. Given a choice between Trump and an Islamophobe, she'd go with the Islamophobe.
It rather highlights that anti-Trumpism is her real identity; Islam is just convenient window dressing.
Trump managed to call attention to Omar's insincerity — and the fact that her real fealty is to Marxism.
It's been obvious enough in her past — coming from a Marxist family in Somalia's civil war, which got ousted.
Omar herself, despite her Muslim wrappings, used as a vehicle to claim herself a victim, has stood up for abortion, transgender rights, gay "marriage," and other things ordinary Muslims abhor.
Her vivid love life isn't too Muslim, either, her latest amor being some white leftist non-Muslim hipster, which doesn't go down well in Islam, except perhaps among the pasha classes.
There's also the report that she was photographed carrying a six-pack of beer.
Nope, her fealty is to Marxism, far-left-wingery. When that ox is gored, Omar stands up, whipping out the yells of "fascist."
She's no Muslim. She's a Marxist. Marxism trumps everything for her, including Islamophobia. Funny how it took Trump to rat that act out.
