A month ago, I wrote an article called “‘Yeah, I’m A Racist. But You’re An Anti-Semitic America Hating Communist.’ Trump Has A Twitter Meltdown.” In it, I wrote the following:
Ilhan Omar must have had a curse put on her by the mainstream media. It seems like every time she says anything it becomes a controversy. Now, people who totally aren’t racist are calling her a racist because she’s a Muslim.
Well, it seems Israel agreed with this assertion as they have banned her and Rep. Rashida Tlaib from entering the country.
Some are defending this as both of them have supported BDS — Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions —however, this goes against any sort of concept of diplomacy that exists in the post-war era. Tell me, should Kim Jong Un have banned Donald Trump because Trump was threatening war with them?
Here’s what the President has said so far:
They’re the face? Here are some people I would consider more of the face:
- Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi
- Majority Leader Steny Hoyer
- Majority Whip Jim Clyburn
- Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer
- Minority Whip Dick Durban
Of course, Israel is a sovereign nation and does have the right to ban anyone they want from entering. However, I must ask why an ally nation chose to ban elected representatives from the United States.
Imagine if Iran did this, or Russia, or how about North Korea? Would that just be accepted by the United States? Can an enemy state just ban every member of Congress? Why should an ally be allowed to ban an elected representative. Can they do such a thing and still be an ally? The people of Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District sure don’t feel like allies. Neither do the people of Michigan’s 13th Congressional District.
But don’t worry, ambassador to Israel David Friedman confirmed that BDS is “not free speech,” but “economic warfare.” Don’t worry though, because Israel is “a nation of laws,” whatever that means. Is there a single nation that isn’t “a nation of laws?”
I should also point out that Omar poses no danger to Israel. Meaning doing this can only be seen as desperation. Omar herself said she would be willing to visit Israel to better understand them. Why don’t they want her to? Is there something they don’t won’t her to see?
This should be raising alarm bells.
