Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has revealed that she is not only anti-Semitic, but she is also racist in her attitudes. Omar posted a tweet, now deleted, that stated a merit-based immigration system would be racist to Hispanics.
Her tweet was quickly deleted, but still survives through screen shots taken before it was deleted. Republicans including Ted Cruz, a Hispanic whose father was an immigrant, pointed out that Omar’s suggestion that Hispanics could not compete in a merit-based immigration system was racist as well as inaccurate.
As the Western Journal pointed out, a Republican who made a comment similar to Omar’s would face massive protests and demands to resign from office. So far, Omar has remained unscathed.
Where is CNN on this story? Where is the New York Times? Must not fit their agenda and talking points.
Double standards and a pass for minority politicians no matter how racist their comments are. This is why fewer and fewer people take anything Democrats say seriously.
