Instead, Pelosi has sharply criticized Trump for fueling the controversy with an edited video of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Those images have caused an increase in death threats against Omar, according to the congresswoman's office.

If the Democrats do not reject Omar as the Republicans rejected David Duke, They are doomed.

I hope all of this only emboldens Omar.

She obviously speaks her mind and is a strong woman-type.
I find it odd she still chooses to wear her scarf considering the modesty was imposed by men and is used to subjugate women today.

Yo, JP: rejection of The Grand Wiz Duke means something OTHER than adopting his ways of racial and religious politics, criminal activity and weird hair dye, all of which members of the GOP, lead by Der Dotard, have taken on...

She knows she'll get her ass kicked by her brother...I mean, her husband if she doesn't.

That would appear exactly why she is wearing it-- after all, you are only parroting the common western narrative of its meaning.

It's called being socially conservative.

No surprise that the self-proclaimed conservatives of the DR would struggle to understand such a concept.

Bruce,
That's crazy!
I can't transition to no pants so quickly.
I started with wiener cleavage.

She's wearing the symbol of subjugation to show she's a free thinking, independent woman that willfully chooses to accept the oppression.

Trump is no more a bigot than Obama. Omar's hatred is just out there for everyone to see. I compare her to David Duke and now, since he's relevant again, Roy Moore.

If you have a problem with Trump, then you have a problem with Obama, Booker, Buttigieg, Gillibrand, Pelosi... The list goes on.

All of these people a bigoted in one way or another. If you have a problem with Trump, then you have to have a problem with them also.

Bigotry, based on race, ethnicity, or religion, is never ok.

I know that, but the voters of Jefferson Parish wanted David Duke in Congress and they were wrong too. They finally came to their senses. We all knew David Duke was a problem mostly because his segregationist ideas are not American. We learned that the hard way.

LOL. It's ok. You can believe whatever you want. I can't do anything about that. You can even lie here. I really don't care.

But, you can't call me a liar. You have absolutely no proof. I can call you a hypocrite for the reasons in my last post and there's nothing you can do about it.

Of course I can.

You stated I condoned particular behavior by Democrats. You're a liar.

But feel free to prove me wrong, Special Eddie. Post my exact words. Until then, I'll call you out for the liar you are, again and again.

Perhaps the voters of her district will come to their senses too.

The problem the Democratic Party has with her is because they are so obsessed with identity politics, a black Muslim woman will simply be given a pass. And it's a problem for them. She's going to keep talking and she's been given quite the microphone. Pelosi wants to downgrade these freshmen as 'like 5 people', as if they are nobodies, but then poses with them for the cover of a magazine, indicating they are anything but nobodies.

101CHAIRBORNE, JORDYPETE,et al., have become trolls for TRUMP, and I will continue to read, but frequently flag their posts as either abusive or offensive. It's sad, really, as they have good grammar and spelling most of the time; and I love a well-turned quip.

The commonality is their never-ending conflation of Judaism and Zionism.

It's almost laughable: Roy Moore, Republican, has nothing to do with the Republican Party?!? How desperate will the lies get?

You stalk me and then say things I didn't say...

There's no proof here! A fake story is not proof. It says that Trump was involved. He wasn't. We all know this. It's a lie. Why don't you know this? Do you honestly think that NPR is telling you the truth? The question is are you gullible because you just want to hate people who are different from you or are you just gullible.

Trump a cultural bigot? Yes. A racist? No. Obama is a cultural bigot. To be a Democrat, you must be a bigot. To participate in intersectionaility (i.e. Mayor Pete is the front runner), you must be a bigot based on race a gender.

I've not seen a Republican who was not rejected by the Republican Party being a bigot based on race or gender or ethnicity.

But, I've seen many many Democrats who are and the other Democrats do nothing about it.
