Tucker Carlson Rips Into Ilhan Omar’s Censor Squad as Insincere Race-Baiters

Fox’s Tucker Carlson Tonight made some waves at the end of Tuesday’s program, when Carlson called Rep. Ilhan Omar a “living fire alarm” of the danger of welcoming immigrants who hate the United States. It was certainly a hot take, and it underlined once again that the liberal elites — the ones who claim to love democracy and free speech — will not tolerate criticism of Omar.

Carlson cited the mostly gushy Washington Post profile of Omar, where we pointed out the reporters signaled that some people (like Tucker) shouldn’t be allowed to comment, since Omar suggests “something bigger — a battle over the American story — who was entitled to tell it and how it would be told.”

The boycott-conservatives squad at Sleeping Giants tweeted “Even for Tucker Carlson, this is outrageously racist. Advertisers need to wake up. By financially supporting this show and the people who rubber stamp these messages, you are sponsoring white supremacy. Full stop.”

The leftist group Muslim Advocates tweeted: “The anti-Muslim rant against @IlhanMN by @TuckerCarlson was not based in any policy or substance: it was just hate-speech. @FoxNews should #FireTuckerCarlson & advertisers should drop him.”

Bizarrely, a Jewish group called Bend the Arc: Jewish Action tweeted: “This is a violent & dangerous attackon a sitting Congresswoman because of who she is and what she stands for. It’s white nationalism in action.”

Speech is violence. Criticism is racism. Omar retweeted that and added: 

Fox News is now giving a nightly platform to white supremacist rhetoric. It’s dangerous.

Advertisers should not be underwriting hate speech.

The Jewish group backing one of the biggest anti-Semites in Congress listed some of Carlson’s advertisers: Starkist, Weather Tech, and NutriSystem. They added the hashtag #DropFox. 

Carlson responded in kind on Wednesday: 

CARLSON: Needless to say, the Left went berserk….Ilhan Omar and her allies in Congress immediately demanded that this show be pulled off the air. They didn’t rebut what we said, any of our points or even acknowledge them. They just tried to silence us. That’s how they operate. And of course they called us racist.

On one level that’s amusing given how absurd the charge is. This show more than any other show on television has taken an aggressive position in favor of colorblind equality and against racism, particularly the casual racism of the modern world left.

We despise the current habit of judging people on the basis of their skin color. It’s wrong. We say that virtually every night. Racist? No. We’re against racism, adamantly.

Omar consistently puts her own race at the center of the conversation, but to us, it’s irrelevant. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, for example, would by the standards of identity politics by Omar’s standards seem to have everything in common with Ilhan Omar.

Like Omar she was born in Somalia, moved to Kenya and eventually came to this country. Unlike Omar, Ali loves and cares about the United States. She believes our country is superior to the country she came from and she says that.

For saying that, the left despises her. Omar’s friend Linda Sarsour once tweeted that Ali deserves to be mutilated for her beliefs. So two Somali immigrants, one among the most impressive people in America, the other among the least, it’s not about race.

But of course Omar and her friends already know that. Nothing they say on the subject race is sincere. It’s all a hustle designed to get them what they want.

Omar has made a career of denouncing anyone and anything in her way as racist. That would include virtually all of her political and personal opponents. It includes even inanimate objects like the proposed border wall, that’s racist. So is the United States Congress, so is the entire state of North Dakota, she once tweeted.

North Dakota surely deserves better. So does America.

Judicial Watch: Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-to-Face’ Meeting on ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch strikes again!

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

BREAKING, AG Bill Barr Ends Census Citizenship Question Debate, Says It Is Legal

Attorney General Bill Barr told the Associated Press that he believes the Trump administration can legally add the citizenship question to the 2020 census, even though the Supreme Court recently, narrowly, ruled against it’s inclusion.

Barr said he has been in regular contact with the President on the citizenship question. Barr told the AP “I agree with him that the Supreme Court decision was wrong.”

He added there is “an opportunity potentially to cure the lack of clarity that was the problem and we might as well take a shot at doing that.”

Barr refused to provided additional details on how the citizenship question might get added to the census.

Reports have indicated that the President is looking to sign an executive orderdirecting the Commerce Department to include the question.

Civil rights groups and some states strongly object to the citizenship question proposal, calling it a Republican ploy to scare immigrants into not participating in the census. That would lead to a population undercount in Democratic-leaning areas with high immigrant populations.

They say that officials lied about their motivations for adding the question and that the move would help Trump’s fellow Republicans gain seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and state legislatures when new electoral district boundaries are drawn.

The Supreme Court on June 27 blocked Trump’s first effort to add the question, faulting the administration’s stated reason. The legal fight seemed to be over earlier in the week when the government said it would start printing census forms without the citizenship question. But the battle reignited last Wednesday when Trump reversed course via tweet.

“We’re working on a lot of things including an executive order,” Trump told reporters last Friday outside the White House as he left for his resort in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Truth is adding the citizenship question to the census is popular with voters.
