Ironically, it was a foreigner doing a job Americans won’t do — Canada’s Rebel Media pressed Omar, AOC and that other one questions the #Partisan Press aren’t asking.. and it’s GOLD.
Blink and you’ll miss it, the timeline here matters.
Just last week, there was some big infighting between the Socialist Left in the Democrats behind AOC and the allegedly ‘moderate’ crew lined up behind Pelosi. AOC and her staffers were hitting the Blue Team with the racism tag, and it got ugly.
Should this really surprise you? She’s an impatient activist determined to ‘fundamentally change’ the world … NOW. And she’s on the record as making an enemies ‘list’ to Primary any Democrat who votes against her agenda. Charming, isn’t she? Oh, and just how socialist is she? We reported on how the Left’s Vox layed it out here.
Ok, we’re pretty much caught up on that backstory… back to the timeline.
Last week there were the cries that ICE was overseeing ‘concentration camps’ and ‘caging children’ … interspersed with snipes between the two Democrat camps on whether ‘mainstream’ Dems are racist, or whether AOC’s staff was out of line for playing that card against a ‘friendly’.
Then, over the weekend were two actual attacks by leftist protesters against ICE detention centers, both of which invoked the very language that AOC and her fellow travelers have been hitting the Trump administration with for about a year now.
They were concerned with such ideas as ‘Separating families’, ‘abolish ICE’, ‘children in cages’, ‘concentration camps’ and so forth… just like AOC keeps talking about.
They were in lockstep agreement with the agitators on the Leftmost wing of the Democrat caucus, as well as having significant ideological overlap with any number of their Presidential hopefuls.
What did these ‘fellow-travelers’ do over the weekend when ICE was removing illegal aliens who had exhausted their attempts to seek lawful asylum?
One group pulled down the US flag and replaced it with the Mexican flag — right on US soil — and defaced a flag supporting ‘Blue Lives’ with the words ‘abolish ICE’. The next day, a domestic terrorist (anarchist, to be specific) released a manifesto saying he was attacking these ‘concentration camps’ in the name of Antifa. He brought a rifle, some incendiaries and a propane tank bomb. He was (fortunately) shot dead by police before he had the chance to murder anyone, but it could have resulted in significant casualties — including some of those being lawfully detained.
But, despite these violent attacks against government servants, the Left was only interested in Trump’s ‘mean tweets’. Because ‘racism’, or something.
An Antifa terrorist radicalised by AOC and Ilhan Omar’s rhetoric literally tries to mass murder Border Patrol officials and the media’s still whining about Trump’s tweets.
Let that sink in.

They had tapdanced around replying to any real questions about denouncing terrorists, including Al Quaeda…

It’s not like there wasn’t just cause to ask about Al Queda. Ilhan Omar had made some questionable statements about them in the past. Defending jihadis returning to America, for one, and that awkward giggling account of the Terrorism class where she noticed that the prof got excited about names like ‘Al Quaeda’ which cannot be done about our own nation or institutions. Oh, and that lie about CAIR she was caught in claiming that Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated group being created post 9/11 to protect Muslim civil rights, you know, after ‘some people’ did ‘some thing’. Ask anyone living in NYC, DC or near a certain field in PA at the time, they might be able to fill in those gaps.
Having not seen the question answered, a reporter from Rebel Media put a microphone in their faces and asked the unanswered questions. Their responses were… instructive.
Gee, why would anyone possibly question her love of America after that?
Here is whats-her-name, the ‘other’ chick from ‘The Squad’ whose name even Whoopi Goldberg couldn’t remember:
Will @AyannaPressley condemn Antifa after their attempted attack on the Tacoma ICE detention center? @TheRealKeean asks: Why are you scared to answer the question? Are they your voter base? pic.twitter.com/BCU1o5TLbP

Suddenly the same crowd that seemingly can’t shut up has nothing to say. Weird, isn’t it?
Next up… AOC stonewalling similar questions:

And of course, Ilhan Omar did no better:

Any guesses as to why they will not give even a simple denunciation of the murderous domestic terrorist welcoming a violent death in support of their own key issue? Someone fighting for a militant terrorist group has been dubbed by some ‘white ISIS’?
Maybe this is a clue. Why are they laughing about NOT denouncing terrorists — including Al Quaeda — as they step into the car? What’s so funny?
After repeatedly asking @Ilhan and @AOC if they would condemn the Antifa firebomber, and if they felt partly responsible, the two got into their SUV and Omar (likely thinking she was off camera) burst into ear to ear laughter. Was there ever a doubt Omar hated America? pic.twitter.com/7OREVpwfSj

Remember Alinsky’s rule #4?
RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)
If AOC can post THIS tweet, accusing ALL Republicans of being ‘racist’ for failing to denounce Trump’s tweet that hurt their feelings:
Until Republican officials denounce yesterday’s explicitly racist statements (which should be easy!), we sadly have no choice but to assume they condone it.
It is extremely disturbing that the *entire* GOP caucus is silent. Is this their agenda? https://t.co/NXIUiPAPls
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 15, 2019
… invoking ‘should be easy’ language in the process, that leads us to ask a question of our own:
Shouldn’t it be even easier to denounce violent groups committing crimes that they, in their oaths of office, swore to defend the nation’s interests against than it is to denounce simple racism? Shouldn’t that answer be a slam dunk?
If THEY cannot bring themselves to give a simple denunciation of terrorists (foreign or domestic) doesn’t it suggest they are implicitly supporting the violence inherent in those groups, including Antifa? After all, it was ‘funny’ to them.
Will the Democrats remain silent about this? Or will they have the guts to say this ‘Squad’ does NOT share the values of the rest of the Democrats.
Or have they so radically changed the party of JFK that his famous ‘ask not’ quote — and his love of country — would be considered thoroughly offensive to them now?
Is there anyone left in that party of his that will denounce what was done to Old Glory at that ICE detention center and could still boldly say with JFK, “I was born an American, I live like an American, I will die an American.”
Or has that phrase been stripped of all meaning to them?
Is it any wonder these activist Democrats have become so very unpopular?
We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.
But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:
“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.
Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
