ILHAN OMAR: ‘White Nationalism’ a ‘Terroristic Threat,’ US Must ‘Defeat the Ideology’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.08.19

Embattled Congresswoman Ilhan Omar weighed-in Wednesday on a pair of mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio; saying “White nationalism is a terroristic threat” across the United States.

“This is absolutely right. White nationalism is a terroristic threat. But we must not repeat the mistakes of the ‘War on Terror.’ The way to defeat white nationalist terrorism is to defeat the ideology that allows it to take hold!” posted Omar on social media.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez made similar statements in recent days, likening ‘White Supremacy’ to a virus.

“There is a difference between white supremacists & white supremacy. White supremacy is like a virus. Supremacists are those who have been completely overcome by the disease, but supremacy – the virus – exists on a larger scale beyond just the infected. It also lays dormant,” posted AOC on Twitter. White supremacy is often subconscious. & Clearly, our nation has not been inoculated. WS is our nation’s original sin; the driving logic of slavery, of Native genocide, of Jim Crow, of segregation, of mass incarceration, of “Send Her Back.” It never went away. It was just dormant.”

“Healing ourselves of white supremacy will be hard. It will be hard because it requires us to confront *ourselves.* We wish it was as simple as denouncing a white hood, a burnt cross, vile language. But we need to address where supremacy *begins,* not just where it ends,” she added.

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed-in Wednesday night on “white supremacy” in America; calling the ideology a “virus” behind “segregation and mass incarceration.”

“There is a difference between white supremacists & white supremacy. White supremacy is like a virus. Supremacists are those who have been completely overcome by the disease, but supremacy – the virus – exists on a larger scale beyond just the infected. It also lays dormant,” posted AOC on Twitter. White supremacy is often subconscious. & Clearly, our nation has not been inoculated.

BETO EXPLODES: O’Rourke Tells Immigrants USA Founded on 'White Supremacy,' ALL Institutions 'Reflect Slavery'

Failing presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke exploded on the USA during a fiery speech in Tennessee this week; telling a group of immigrants that “every single institution” in the country is based on White Supremacy.

“I know this from my home state, Texas, places that formed the Confederacy, that this country was founded on white supremacy,” he said, according to the Tennessean. “And every single institution and structure that we have in this country still reflects the legacy of slavery and segregation and Jim Crow and suppression, even in our democracy.”

O’Rourke spoke with supporters in Mexico last weekend; meeting with rejected asylum-seekers hoping to enter the United States.

“According to a pool report put out by the O’Rourke campaign, the candidate spoke to a group of asylum seekers in Spanish for about 15 minutes at a restaurant in Ciudad Juarez, across the Rio Grande from O’Rourke’s hometown of El Paso. The candidate then traveled to a shelter for migrants run by the Catholic Church, where he met around a table with migrants from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala who told of being denied entry into the U.S. and returned to the Mexican border city while their asylum claims were being processed,” reports Fox News.

“Sunday’s visit represented a bid by O’Rourke to re-establish his credentials on the immigration issue after clashing with fellow Texan Julian Castro during Wednesday’s first presidential primary debate in Miami. Castro, a former Housing and Urban Development secretary and mayor of San Antonio, chided the ex-congressman for not being willing to fully decriminalize illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border,” adds Fox.

Left-wing presidential candidate Julian Castro apparently forgot the previous two-nights of Democratic debates; telling MSNBC that “nobody has called for open borders” and labeling the issue a “right-wing talking point.”

“Nobody has called for open borders. That’s just a right-wing talking point,” said Castro hours after the debate.
