With everything going on with Ilhan Omar today, I aaaaaalmost forgot to talk to you about this little nugget:
Oh, FFS. She wrote for Louis Farrakhan. REALLY?
But… she doesn’t ENDORSE him, y’all. She just COLLABORATED with him.
Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan published a column in 2006 on The Final Call, an online publication founded and maintained by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
First unearthed by conservative blogger Jeryl Bier, Tlaib penned a column titled “Bills must stop deportations for minor offenses,” which takes issue with deportations for minor offenses.
A spokesperson for Tlaib did not respond to multiple requests for comment from INSIDER.
Tlaib’s association with Farrakhan comes on the heels of heavy criticism of her and other freshmen Democrats who have been accused of anti-Semitism.
Tlaib was also revealed to have a prominent fundraiser who has trafficked in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
HOW STUPID DOES SHE THINK WE ARE?!
OH, YOU KNOW! Because…um… reasons.
That’s like me saying I think Mock and Daisy are TOTALLY WRONG… but I write for COTR anyway.
Yup – that’s not how this works. I WRITE FOR COTR BECAUSE THE FOUNDERS AND I HAVE SIMILAR VIEWS AND VALUES.
And if it came out a Congressmember used to write for David Duke’s newsletter… would they not immediately be asked to step aside?
