posted by Hannity Staff - 4.09.19

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declared a regional “health emergency” Tuesday as a measles outbreak spread across sections of Brooklyn; requiring students in specific zip codes to be vaccinated or face a $1,000 fine.

“Mayor Bill de Blasio declared a public health emergency on Tuesday and has ordered mandatory vaccinations for people who may have been exposed to the virus in parts of Williamsburg amid a growing measles outbreak,” reports WCBS.

“We have a situation now where children are in danger. We have to take this seriously. Every one of us has to feel responsibility for the situation because measles is so contagious, can spread so quickly,” said De Blasio Tuesday morning.

The Mayor’s office said there have been more than 250 cases of measles diagnosed in the neighborhood since September.

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.
