The positions that Ilhan Omar takes on foreign policy generally lead me to conclude that she is a tool of the Muslim Brotherhood (right-wing Sunnis who strategically play the Shia-led axis of resistance and pro-imperialist Wahhabi/Zionist block against each other). Her positions line up almost perfectly with theirs.
Carlson calls out the federal police state about 3 minutes into this. Ilhan Omar’s response is disappointing and regrettably rooted in partisan/cultural/tribal politics than actual opposition to the system. From Trump-loyaltist three percenters to Democrat-voting Marxists, it’s interesting how few supposed “radicals” actually oppose the system.
The Minnesota congresswoman Ilhan Omar has unveiled a bill that would cancel rent and mortgage payments for millions of Americans struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Under the legislation announced on Friday, landlords and mortgage holders would be able to have losses covered by the federal government. The program would extend for a month beyond the end of the national emergency, which was declared on 13 March, and would be made retroactive to cover April payments.
The proposal comes amid an unprecedented housing crisis: 31% of Americans in rental accommodation could not pay rent at the beginning of this month. Millions have lost their jobs since.
Federal answers have been limited. The Cares Act stimulus package included $12bn for Department of Housing and Urban Development programs targeting homelessness and rental assistance. But those funds do little to address the needs of millions of Americans who now find themselves on the edge of acute housing insecurity
As something of a radical contrarian, I often feel like my life is comprised largely of coming out of an endless procession of closets, often without even realizing I’m stepping through the doorway. What? You didn’t know I was a pro-life feminist? You’ve never heard of a libertarian socialist? I genuinely can’t keep up with all the peccadillos you partisan pussies find indigestible. All in all, with this experience of casually shocking boring people, it’s little wonder I took to being queer like a fish in a frying pan.
But some closet doors are heavier than others and at this hybrid moment of Republicrat hysteria, they don’t get much heavier than the simple fact that I have a great deal of respect for both Ilhan Omar and Tucker Carlson, which is a bit like being a unicorn that everyone hates for a different reason. How could this be possible? Well, for one thing, I’ve long held a soft spot in my bleeding heart for both shocking people and, well, shocking-people. As a kid, I couldn’t seem to decide whether I wanted to be Mother Teresa or Marilyn Manson when I grew up. But more than any idiosyncratic character flaw, my respect for these two highly demonized figures stems from the fact that I am and will always be an anti-imperialist above all else. And regardless of their many many flaws both Ilhan and Tucker have been fairly consistent advocates for world peace.
I never expected to like Tucker Carlson and, for the most part, I still don’t. His demonization of immigrants and trans people like myself is nothing short of revolting. But like most paleocons, with Mr. Carlson you take the good with the disgusting. Regardless of how you or I may feel about the bastard’s social cluelessness, you have to be pathologically apoplectic to deny his post-partisan devotion to anti-interventionism. Where Tucker’s beloved pseudo-isolationist Caesar, Donald Trump, has faltered, Carlson has remained courageously resolute.
Since taking the prime time slot of pandering grope-a-holic Bill O’Reilly, Tucker Carlson has delivered some of the most breathlessly eloquent prose in defense of peace that this country has seen since MSDNC had Phil Donahue fired for speaking out against the war in Iraq, often going against the very president he rebuilt his career on defending in the process, and it’s effect appears to be profound. Donald Trump seems to have only reversed his decision to commit mass murder in Iran after a brief phone call with his favorite Fox News host. With an impetuously impressionable man-child in the Oval Office, this xenophobic, binarist dick may have literally saved lives by sticking to his guns on America’s existential need to drop hers. Hate the fucker for who he is, but game recognizes game, and Tucker is looking pretty damn familiar to this tranny peacenik. Crucify me for being big enough admit it.
Perhaps the only thing more enjoyable than seeing a neocon network hijacked by a modern-day Charles Lindbergh has been watching mighty little Ilhan make those same pigfucking giants sweat. While, as an anarchist, I may find Mrs. Omar’s pseudo-socialist, big-government-solves-everything approach to domestic policy nauseatingly tiresome, she has proven herself to be the Lower House’s most doggedly consistent critic of empire since Ron Paul.
At a time of heightened anti-Muslim discrimination and hatred, the Democratic establishment has taken unprecedented steps to single out a Muslim representative for her criticisms of AIPAC and the U.S.’s relationship with Israel. After first publicly rebuking Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Democratic establishment, led by House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi, began drafting a resolution condemning anti-Semitism, amounting to an indirect censure.
A growing number of
Americans are becoming aware of the destructive influence of the Israeli
and Saudi lobby in the United States, which has led to anti-Muslim
sentiment in some sectors of the country, an American analyst in
“More and more people in the United States are becoming increasingly
critical of American foreign policy and these policies involving
constant wars to overthrow the governments of other countries,” said
Keith Preston, chief editor of AttacktheSystem.com.
“Also, more and more Americans are becoming aware of the role that
the Israeli lobby has over American foreign policy and over the American
government … and more people are becoming aware of the influence that
the Saudi Arabians have over the American government, particularly after
the murder of Jamal Khashoggi,” Preston told Press TV on Sunday.
“So what seems to be happening is that there are various elements in
the United States that are aligned with Israel and that are aligned with
Saudi Arabia and ironically they’re trying to fan the flames of
anti-Muslim sentiment to justify the kind of imperialist foreign policy
paradigm that the United State has traditionally adhered to,” he added.
US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has condemned Republicans for linking her
to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, saying it’s “no wonder”
she is on the “hit list” of a domestic terrorist.

of Congress. Along with Rashida Tlaib, she was one of the first two
Muslim women elected to the lower chamber of Congress and the first
woman of color elected from Minnesota.
Some pro-Israel US politicians have accused Omar of anti-Semitic
comments because she has been a staunch critic of Israel and its
anti-Muslim policies in the Middle East. She has also repeatedly slammed
the main Israeli lobby in the US, the American Israel Public Affairs
Speaking on Wednesday night at an event in Washington, DC with fellow

anti-Semitic charges against her, saying everything they say about
Israel is interpreted as anti-Semitic because they are Muslim.
