Ilhan Omar is once again in the hot seat.
The Minnesota Congresswoman’s constant scandals for apologizing for Islamic terrorism cast a long shadow over the Democrat Party and their prospects for the 2020 election.
And now Ilhan Omar was caught red-handed allied with a terrorist organization for this awful reason.
Ilhan Omar doesn’t lose a chance to prove what a terrible person she is.
While she’s mad at Israel for the travel restrictions that it places on the Gaza Strip because it is run by Hamas, a terrorist organization, Ilhan Omar isn’t going to blame Iran for its human right violations.
In fact she’s trying to smear Masih Alinejad who had to flee her homeland because she spoke out against Iran’s brutal regime.
Ilhan Omar tried to insinuate that the reason that Masih Alinejad is speaking out against Iran is because she’s a government contractor.
Alinejad has worked as an “anchor, writer, reporter for Persian Service,” a U.S. government owned television network broadcasting to Iranians since 2015 when Obama was President.
Masih Alinejad, whose brother is currently being held prisoner by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, had a harsh response for Ilhan Omar.
Earlier this week, Rep Ilhan Omar shared a defamatory article about me on social media by a Koch-Brothers funded “think tank” co-founded by a known sympathizer of the Iranian regime.
Here’s my response to @IlhanMN
Ilhan Omar, when my innocent brother was recently taken hostage by the regime, solely due to my advocacy of civil rights for Iran, I reached out to you, expecting solidarity from you. However, you were silent. You gave no reaction.When women like Saba Kordafshari, Yasaman Aryani, Monireh Arabshahi and Mojgan Keshavarz were arrested for protesting against compulsory hijab in Iran and were sentenced to a total of 95 years in prison, you were silent.
When my 70-year-old mother was interrogated for my activities by the Revolutionary Guards, I asked for your help, but you were silent yet again.
You’re silent even now as 176 people have been killed onboard a Ukraine Airlines plane under suspicious circumstances in Iran. After months of silence, you instead chose to amplify a smear campaign against me, a fellow woman of color. Your only comments to all these human rights abuses is to repeat Islamic Republic propaganda against me.
As a journalist, I am an independent contractor for a number of media outlets, including the Persian-language service of Voice of America, which was created to counter the propaganda of authoritarian adversaries like the Soviet Union. This was evident to all who know my work, including millions of voiceless Iranians. Is this what you’re bullying me for?
By bullying a freelance journalist like me, you are empowering the Revolutionary Guards to put more pressure on my family. Those of us who hail from countries ruled by tyrants are capable of denouncing both the cruel policies of Trump & dictators in our native lands. I’ve openly condemned Trump’s travel ban—which separated me from my son in the UK—and his threats of attacking cultural sites in Iran.
I’ve also condemned the Islamic Republic’s ban on Iranian dissidents that prevented people like me from going home. I have loudly protested a potential war against Iran years before you entered the Congress.
Yet, when I divulge the repression of the Islamic Republic, attacks against me proliferate by the regime & their supporters in the West. I’d have never imagined that one day a member of Congress, a fellow woman of colour, would join with my oppressors in trying to defame me.
Ilhan Omar should be ashamed of herself for trying to silence a victim of the Iranian regime’s brutality because it doesn’t fit with her political agenda.
Do you think that Ilhan Omar crossed a line with her latest attack?
