It’s almost like there’s a pattern of racism generating from Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar.
Video has surfaced of Omar (MN) conducting an interview as a congressional candidate with Al Jazeera in which she describes white men as a bigger terror threat than radical Islamists.
“A lot of conservatives, in particular, would say the rise in Islamaphobia is a result not of hate but of fear,” anchor Mehdi Hasan states.
“A legitimate fear they say of, ‘jihadist terrorism’ whether it’s Fort Hood or San Bernardino, or the recent truck attack in New York. What do you say to them?” he asked.
Omar responds, “I would say that our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country.”

In another portion of the interview, Omar backs up that contention saying that she would even support racial profiling of white men.
“We should be profiling monitoring and creating policies to fight the radicalization of white men,” she opined.
The statements echo those of some of the more radical members of the media like CNN’s Don Lemon, who has compared Trump supporters to Nazis and claimed the “biggest terror threat in this country is white men.”
More importantly, it establishes a pattern in Omar’s own racist comments.
Omar Doesn’t Like White People?
Earlier this year, the congresswoman addressed a ‘Black Women in Defense of Ilhan Omar’ event, where she blamed President Trump for a rise in Islamophobia and anti-Semitism and declared “this is not going to be the country of white people.”
@ttuckerwwl Forefathers would be so proud:
Asserting that America “was founded on the history of Native American genocide, on the backs of black slaves,” she went on to brazenly state, “This is not going to be the country of white people.”https://t.co/aOXOYb0BGP

“This is not going to be the country of the xenophobics. This is not going to be the country of white people,” she told her supporters. “This is not going to be the country of the few. This is going to be the country of the many.”
It’s also worth noting that she politically attacks white opponents on both sides of the aisle by projecting and calling them the real racists, while at the same time, as a panel of women on CNN recently noted, the Squad of which she’s a part shuns white members.
“Why haven’t they befriended one of their white female congresswoman colleagues and let her join the group?” one woman asked. “They don’t like white people. C’mon, they’re racist.”
