Rep. Ilhan Omar keeps throwing a non-stop pity party for herself as the bigot who constantly claims to be the victim.
Omar is actually powerful and privileged and has risen to a position of power in the country she makes no secret of hating.
Meanwhile, Masih Alinejad is an actual dissident. Alinejad lives in exile and has been a courageous activist against the Islamist regime, encouraging protests, boycotts, and celebrating women who refuse to bow to mandatory hijabs. Her family members have been arrested and Iran’s regime plotted to kidnap her.
And here’s Rep. Omar’s (current) husband accusing her of Islamophobia for an op-ed warning that Omar’s Islamophobia bill “might be creating precedents that could undermine our freedom to speak out”.
“So this lady doesn’t want to combat Islamophobia because she doesn’t like Muslims. Understood!” Tim Mynett, the political consultant currently playing the role of Omar’s husband, tweeted.
As Hillel Neuer of UN Watch pointed out, “Ilhan Omar’s husband just accused journalist Masih Alinejad of not liking Muslims—even though she was born a Muslim in Iran, and in the editorial (which he seems not to have read) mentions her hijab-wearing mother among “many relatives who are pious Muslims I love and respect.”
But the one thing that Omar and her gang know how to do is falsely accuse people of Islamophobia. This entire exchange proves Alienjad’s point.
Omar and her ilk can’t be trusted not to use false accusations of Islamophobia to silence critics and just anyone who disagrees.
