Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, July 22, 2019

A post on a local political group's Facebook page ignited controversy. The Illinois Republican Party Chairman's Association posted a movie-like poster on its Facebook page depicting Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan with weapons under the title, "the Jihad Squad." These are the same Democratic congresswomen that President Trump has attacked in recent tweets and comments. Cook County Democratic Party Chair Toni Preckwinkle denounced the post, calling it racist and inflammatory. Illinois GOP Chairman Tim Schneider also condemned it.
