Ilhan Omar Posts Disgusting Message In Wake Of Boulder Massacre, Claims The Suspect’s Race Is The Main Focus When They ‘Aren’t White’

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Ilhan Omar faced criticisms after claiming that the “race or ethnicity” of mass shooters is front and center when the shooter is not “white,” according to Fox News.

“The shooter’s race or ethnicity seems front and center when they aren’t white.”

“Otherwise, it’s just a mentally ill young man having a bad day.”

“Narratives drive our responses to awful crimes committed against innocent people, pay attention to these responses and who is targeted,” she added.

“This literally works both ways, [Omar] so take your own advice. Maybe that’s how we find justice instead of hyperventilating to blame each other about everything all the time,” wrote Kira Davis. “I invite you – as a leader – to take the first step and then keep walking forward.”

Pluribus editor Jeryl Bier said that Omar’s tweet “sounds like it comes from an alternate universe.”

Omar posted a similar tweet last week, after the mass shootings in Atlanta that targeted three massage parlors.

In the tweet, she wrote that it isn’t “hard to understand why it’s so normalized for law enforcement to protect the humanity of white mass murderers and their willingness to continually make excuses [for] them.”

The tragedy in Colorado has led to calls from Democrats for an increase in gun control legislation, and President Joe Biden is considering taking executive action, per White House press secretary Jen Psaki.
