If Ilhan Omar Is Killed , Will President* Trump Be Held Responsible?

The president* tweeted out a video interspersing comments made by Rep. Ilhan Omar with footage of the terrorist planes hitting the World Trade Center Towers on 9/11. 

Trump immediately presents his followers with a belief that Omar condoned the attack or maybe even was part of it. 

This is the president of the United States acting in a way that could very well lead one of his unhinged followers to try and harm this woman. 

Every decent human being needs to oppose Trump.

Replying to @realDonaldTrump


Trump on 9/11: “40 Wall Street actually was the second tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was actually, before the World Trade Center, was the tallest. And then, when they built the World Trade Center, it became known as the second tallest. And now it’s the tallest.”



Shortly after the attack, Trump claimed $150,000 from the government to cover “rent loss” and “repairs”. The money had originally been set aside for small businesses in the area.



In an interview about his first 100 days in the White House with the Associated Press, Trump boasted that his “ratings” on cable network shows like on Fox and CBS’s Face the Nation were higher than those for broadcasts of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump weighed in Friday on the most recent controversy involving Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, retweeting video edited to suggest that the Minnesota congresswoman was dismissive of the significance of the Sept. 11 attacks.

The video pulls a snippet of Omar’s speech last month to the Council on American-Islamic Relations in which she described the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center as “some people did something,” as well as news footage of the hijacked planes hitting the twin towers. Trump tweeted, “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!”

Omar’s remark has drawn criticism largely from political opponents and conservatives who say the congresswoman, one of the first Muslim women to serve in Congress, offered a flippant description of the assailants and the attacks on American soil that killed nearly 3,000 people and pointed the U.S. toward war.

Neither Trump’s tweet nor the video includes her full quote or the context of her comments.

Omar told CAIR in Los Angeles that many Muslims saw their civil liberties eroded after the attacks, and she advocated for activism.

What has been most stunning to me is how by misrepresenting what Omar has actually been saying the far right has been guilty of blatantly demonizing Omar for her faith and her culture and not for her actual message which ultimately is one of inclusion.

There are nine Jews in the US Senate including zero nada no zip republicans. Of the twenty seven Jewish members of the House only two are in the gop. So, of 36 Jewish members of Congress 2 are republicans and 34 are Democrats including Senate leaders Schumer and Feinstein. 

If any of them were attacked based mainly upon preconceived notions and prejudices regarding their faiths and cultural backgrounds that would be viewed as antisemitism.

Omar has misspoken and has appologized and clarified.butt some have been mad, upset and in high dungeon (?) about it ever since without any proportion.

Omar is the only Muslim in Congress. She should at least in fairness be able to represent the Muslim American portion of her constituency. That may be tough. In all fairness though, the reactions to her have been excessively unfair, out of proportion and frankly IMHO often unconscionable.

Several legitimate threats have already been made and thankfully interrupted against Omar's life. She gets lots of death threats. Anyone saying anti-Islamic prejudice has not been at play lately especially regarding Omar is not being honest. The same goes for AOC regarding race and culture. Two young freshman Congresswomen are now living in fear for their very lives and those fanning it on who think that this is cool and okay and that they deserve it are the real problem.

Sounds like somebody needs to check or do some research. Omar has in fact been routinely been shooting her mouth off uttering hateful and bigoted remarks. She is the one doing the misrepresenting and she brings much of the demonizing on herself.

Omar's alleged apologies have in fact been weak and watered down deflection with little sincerity and  zero condemnation of Islamic terrorism. That speaks volumes in and of itself.

Omar is not the only Muslim in Congress. There are in fact three! She herself is doing a great disservice to the Muslim community with her hateful commentaries.

Any and all  threats of harm or death to anyone are wrong and are to be condemned and punished no matter by who or to whom. But on the other hand, Omar and others can help reduce this by tuning down their hareful Islamist rhetoric.

Oh, but not President Donald who clearly thinks nearly every home in this country will only do better when he tweets about it!

This so-called, "leader" would do well to operate in the lane of SILENCE! for a good while and let the citizens recuperate.

Maybe we should refer to Peal Harbor as "some guys in some planes did something".

Scumbag and his worms have put a target on Omar.  There's already been one credible threat on her life and it's just a matter of time before one of Scumbag's POSes takes actual aim at her.   Scumbag will certainly be complicit in that crime but like all fascist dictators he'll claim total innocence and blame the victim.  

On a side note, Omar is a co-sponsor of the bill to make the fund to aid 9/11 responders permanent.  Scumbag is silent on that bill and Scumpublicans refuse to vote on it.  That really does show us who actually cares about this country and the working, sacrificing people in it and who are shitting on it and them.

Tell me, who was responsible for when shit was going bad during the Obama administration- well that would be Bush, the Republican Party, and those that "Cling to their bibles and guns" or the "the enemies".

https://www.catholic.org/news/politics/story.php?id=38993

U.S. President Barack Obama apologized on the eve of the Congressional elections. He now says he shouldn't have used the word "enemies" to describe his political opponents, i.e. Republicans. Obama, in an interview with talk radio host Michael Baisden, said, "I probably should have used the word 'opponents' instead of enemies."

But, that was just the truth right? Obama and the Dems never had anything to do with whatever was going bad, at any time in history, at any point.

You all should have been happy with Obama but never will be. A steady recovery his whole time in office. Republicans even ran the house for six years of his term.

So Obama actually apologized for calling people enemies yet trump doubles down on his rhetoric.

What the fuck for?

For signing a SOFA agreement that tied the US to a weak corrupt Afghanistan government? For reinserting troops back into Iraq supporting a government that is loyal to Iran? For destabilizing Libya, Syria, Yemen, and the Ukraine? 

How about for 0 percent fed interest rates for nearly the length of his term? Great for banks, the stock market speculators, and the housing market- shitty for anyone who had any money in the banks and wanted at least a little return on their investment.

How about obstructing every last investigation into the corruption within his administration? Set great precedents for Trump to follow.

As for apologizing- the damage was already done.  He said what he meant- he got the reaction he wanted. The apology was too little too late.

If the left would have held Obama to the same standards they hold Republican POTUS to he wouldn't have lasted past his first term.

What I love is the left has sunk to levels below Trump. Can't stand the man; but seems the left can do no more than attack him. They should be concentrating weeding out the insanity of the overflowing clown car of presidential candidates; and coming up with a platform that doesn't look like it is written by someone on crack.

3.1.12  Ender  replied to  Ronin2 @3.1.11    3 days ago

If people are saying its only about the economy, yes. Under Obama they economy continually grew throughout his term.

We have a SOFA agreement with over 100 countries. In 2015 we basically turned over combat operations to the Afgan government. Isn't that what everyone wanted? Let them fight their own battles? Nato has had a leadership role there since 2003.

U.S. casualties in Afghanistan peaked at 499 in 2010 and dropped sharply after January 2015, when Afghan forces assumed full responsibility for combat operations against the Taliban. https://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/bgn/5380.htm

The Ukraine was destabilized when Russia decided to do a land grab.

Why wouldn't Obama have lasted his first term? What has so horrible or criminal that he did? I know the right has a wish list. The right has hated Obama from day one. 

Hell they have investigated Hillary for years on end for several different things and still are not happy, shouting lock her up. trump is investigated, with legitimate concerns I will add, and the right goes insane.

No matter how people try to frame it, Obama never acted like a complete buffoon, unlike our current occupant.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/06/01/secret-service-trump-faces-same-number-threats-obama/102400210/

WASHINGTON – Despite a spate of White House security breaches and other attention-grabbing stunts, there has been no change in the number of threats to directed at President Trump during his first five months in office as compared to his predecessor Barack Obama, according to the Secret Service.

On average, agents have been pursuing six to eight threat reports each day, the new Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Alles told reporters Thursday.

That number that has remained relatively consistent for the past decade, regardless of the officeholder, the retired Marine Corps major general said in his first briefing since his appointment by Trump in April.

The remarks come as the agency was confronted just this week with a grim stunt organized by actress Kathy Griffin who was photographed holding a fake, severed head in the image of Trump.  Griffin's actions, which drew direct rebukes from Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, has set in motion a formal investigation. The Secret Service will question the actress.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/several-threats-made-against-president-trump-secret-service-director-randolph-alles/

Threats againstPresident Trumpfor his first six months in office are tracking about six to eight per day, the new director of the U.S. Secret Service said on Thursday, CBS News' Pat Milton reports.

It's about the same number of threats made against former Presidents Obama and George W. Bush while they were in office.

The threats include emails, social media postings and someone reporting a suspicious statement, saidU.S. Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Allesin his first briefing since taking office in April.

Or maybe the Dems and their talking heads would like to be held responsible when their rhetoric spurs their ilk to take action against those caught, but never prosecuted in the Mueller investigation?

https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2019/03/28/mueller-investigation-michael-caputo-trump-first-person-226336

If you believe Attorney General William Barr, the special counsel report issued March 22 found no evidence that President Donald Trump’s campaign staff conspired or coordinated with Russia. As a former Trump senior campaign adviser and as a witness ensnared by the congressional and special counsel investigations for two years, that was vindication. I was elated.

But Barr angered a man in nearby Buffalo, N.Y., so much that he threatened my life a few hours later on Facebook. I filed criminal charges against him Tuesday.

For a Trump associate trapped in the Russia collusion maelstrom, this is the norm, not an exception. This was the 58th threat of violence I received since the drama began two years ago, when my name was first brought up in a nationally televised House Intelligence hearing. Most of the perpetrators cloaked their identities. Some didn’t, and they got hit with criminal charges. I know many investigation witnesses who have lived the same nightmare of dealing with the unhinged.

Unfortunately, it won’t stop anytime soon: A criminal psychologist advising me through this period told me we’ve entered the danger zone. The mentally ill who have made Russia collusion the center of their lives will become unhinged. Some may attack.

That’s the life we’ve lived for two years—my wife, my young daughters and me. I had a tooth knocked out by Antifa at the president’s inauguration. After a televised congressional hearing during which my wife was mentioned, a man made a credible threat to burn down my house with my children inside. As a result, my office and home are wrapped in security measures, I’ve installed shotgun stations in my home, and I carry a concealed weapon wherever it’s legal.

The remarkable vitriol impacts everyone. My teenager was harried by students and teachers alike; parents of my toddlers’ friends shied away. My wife carried us all on her shoulders, exponentially stronger than I am.

But that poor, poor, racist, anti Semite, Democrat. She doesn't deserve this. jrSmiley_98_smiley_image.gif

All the left can scream 24/7 is Trummmmmppppppppp!!!!!!! 

All sides need to tone down the rhetoric; and that includes Omar- that the left has made perpetual excuses for running her mouth and leaving her brain behind.

By the way- nice doctored picture Trump in a Nazi hat.  I am sure that won't stoke anything. Son in Law is Jewish, oldest daughter is Jewish, recognized Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and moved the US embassy there (not that I agree with it), next step might be restarting the Reagan plan that would have the US recognize Israel's right to far more land in the occupied territories. Damn, the man is an unmitigated NAZI!  

But again, unless we forget, the root of all evil is Trummmmmpppppppp!!!!!!!

Poll: 58 percent of voters approve of President Trump's handling of the economy

WASHINGTON — Voters’ attitudes about the economy will be the driving force in the next presidential election, according to the first Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service “Battleground Poll” of the 2020 cycle.

if anyone cared about all the "he said and she said bs? trump never would have been elected. voters knew what they were getting when they voted and no one who voted for trump actually expected any changes in his rhetoric or tone..  

someone once said:  "it is the economy, stupid."  im thinking that it could have been worded better (without the word "stupid)  however the bigger theory is still true to this day.

all voters will care about in 2020 is the economy so the left had better find a plan to do better than trumps economy or they are toast in 2020 and beyond 

(btw. free stuff for everyone is not going to sell as a better economic plan)

Where is your sense of decency for the office and power of the presidency? Well, you realize the power vested in the office, because you celebrate this president's use of it! So how about a simple recognition of an abuse of influence when the world's preeminent officeholder refuses to treat the power and influence he yields with equal responsibility.

Surely, you can not expect us to accept as rational a president who manipulates hatred, emotions, and passions with abandon. There is not an economic boom worthy enough to allow common sense and good order and discipline to fall away from our character.

CB, we see on this thread why there is a war going on in America today. 

Trump supporters believe that all he needs to do is preside over an improving economy. Or all he has to do is make his followers happy.  His followers are a minority of the country and have never been anything but a minority. Now it is ok for the president of the United States to misleadingly incite hatred toward a member of Congress? 

They want to know why we dont just accept that he won the election. These things are why, and a million others.

It is high time to talk brass tacks. Conservatives are issuing the provocation. They hired this 'horses ass' of a president to push the country into a conservative column whole. To the conservative mind, they have all the resources (aka, "stockpiles" of guns) to wage what they will consider a 'holy' war on their fellow citizens. 

It is time for liberals to openly understand what they are being plainly shown and told. It's the provocation. Conservatives, by their actions and inaction, are speaking volumes.

We are being told to put up with the conservative way of life; or, do something about it. For their part, this man, Donald Trump, is their 'forward-leading' general-President.

Lastly, all that remains to be discovered, is where independent voters 'squat' on the scale.

Still, I am only human.

President Trump is an offense to nearly everything I stand for, and giving him 'props' for being a self-made "institution" in this country, does not give him the right to alter the course of a great nation by insisting we all do something crooked like walk in lock-step with him.

I know what the gun lobby is for in this country. I can guess why conservatives don't want those laws to be touched. I won't say it again. But, it is clear as noses setting up high on the faces of men - someone is setting a dangerous agenda—for us all.

The people of the country was warned that New York's Donald Trump is a 'punching fool.' And the outrages continue from the White House on a daily basis. Here is an obsessive man who has never come across something that looks like a great place to plant a 'flag' and not stopping long enough to dig a hole, drop a pole and flag, and pouring concrete around it all.

We were warned that this specific man, Donald Trump, did not have the temperament to be a world leader, but the electoral college elected him to be so anyway.

Nonsense. Conservatives can't chase former President Obama anymore, because he no longer gives a damn that you are behind him. Turn around and talk to your 'boy' currently holding the office. Afterall, he is the one who is making a mockery out of your values—depending on your values—which speaks volumes when you support a compulsive liar who comes across more like a television drama creation that is "on" in prime time nightly. Think, Dallas' J. R. Ewing or Boss Hogg - Dukes of Hazzard.

Conservatives you have control of the spotlight and if you are going to let Donald Trump be Donald Trump, then get 'creamed' right along with him when the pendulum swings back in the other direction. A saturation point is coming.

You should listen to right-wing radio commentators (the "heavyweights") tear republican/conservative politicians a new one! Conservative "jaw-jacking" of one of their own may last 'for days' because these shows are twenty-four-seven passion-plays.

In a way, I can see why republicans in office toll the line—conservatives keep their politicians "eyes forward" - 24/7!

If these millionaire AM 'shock-jocks' ever turn on Trump, it will be like 'dynamite' going off in the castle! Mark Levin 'rode' Senator McCain like a well-worned saddle on his show for years! To be clear, I do not listen to them all the time, because they are not my brand of politics. But when I do it is either, anger or laughter as they can and do 'eat their own.'

Of course, the rest of the thinking world will know better and not listen to the putrid offerings from the nutjobs always blaming Trump for everything under the sun. Say, you don't know anyone like that, do you?

Hi friend Jasper! I don't defend Omar's comments, per se. I just do not like people piling on a "nothing burger." 911 is honorable. But, it is not unmentionable in the context of whatever she was trying to state. For opposition politics to muster up faux indignation and whip it into going viral, is in my opinion stupid. But I am not naive, I know she opens her mouth to speak and conservatives point to her 'headgear' as a point of signification of seeing her "otherness."

Politics is overwhelming stupid in how we elect people, keep them, and boot them from office. It is all we have to work with, nevertheless. Sigh. And, of course, "the professionals" have taught themselves the 'art' of professiona political destruction.

Sidebar. I sometimes wonder when a politician on either side who is long-lived in Washington, D.C., been through a long series of election cycles, goes out in retirement. Does that man or woman even know who they are as a person or appreciate the individual they have 'morphed' into at the end.

My "heroine" she is not. Indeed, I loosely hear of her—usually through these 'red-hot signal flares' conservatives set off - hoping to go viral against her. Honestly, I wish she would assess that whatever she states will be taken out of context (and she might already know this) by conservatives who want to make her a down-the-line "boogey bear." Can they fear her potential for power already?!!!

Stop flying a false flag. She has a right to speak up for her constituents, just as Donald Trump has a right to speak up for conservatism. Where the problems lie is President Trump is leader of the free world. Supposedly, a newly elected one-term, freshman congressperson is considered out of the purview of a sitting president (who, we are told is too busy governing and protecting the whole of the country to possibly be indictable (by DOJ policy).

Now if President Trump continues to find time to 'punch-down' on Twitter , can you unequivocally agree that DOJ can indict President Trump? Maybe send the indictment through the Twitter system?

Why Does the Far Right Hold a Near-Monopoly on Political Violence?

Studies show that most people across the political spectrum abhor it. So what might explain the disparity?


Many Republican candidates have included themselves using firearms in their campaign ads. From left to right, top to bottom: Kay Daly, Joni Ernst, Donald Trump, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Eric Greitens, Rick Perry, Rand Paul, Will Brooke

In the wake of the mass shooting in suburban Virginia last week that left House majority whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and three others wounded, conservatives have been furiously waving the bloody shirt. With left-wing hate filling half the screen, Sean Hannity blamed Democrats, saying they “dehumanize Republicans and paint them as monsters.” Tucker Carlson claimed that “some on the hard left” support political violence because it “could lead to the dissolution of a country they despise.” Others have blamed seemingly anything even vaguely identified with liberalism for inciting the violence—from Madonna to MSNBC to Shakespeare in the Park.

This is all a truly remarkable example of projection. In the wake of the shooting, Erick Erickson wrote a piece titled, “The Violence is Only Getting Started,” as if three innocent people hadn’t been brutally murdered by white supremacists in two separate incidents in just the past month.

In the real world, since the end of the Vietnam era, the overwhelming majority of serious political violence—not counting vandalism or punches thrown at protests, but violence with lethal intent—has come from the fringes of the right. Heidi Beirich, director of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Project says that “if you go back to the 1960s, you see all kinds of left-wing terrorism, but since then it’s been exceedingly rare.” She notes that eco- and animal-rights extremists caused extensive property damage in the 1990s, but didn’t target people.

Meanwhile, says Beirich, “right-wing domestic terrorism has been common throughout that period, going back to groups like to The Order, which assassinated [liberal talk-radio host] Alan Berg [in 1984] right through to today.” Mark Pitcavage, a senior research fellow at the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, told NPR that “when you look at murders committed by domestic extremists in the United States of all types, right-wing extremists are responsible for about 74 percent of those murders.” The actual share is higher still, as violence committed by ultraconservative Islamic supremacists isn’t included in tallies of “right-wing extremism.”

A 2015 survey of law-enforcement agencies conducted by the Police Executive Research Forum and the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security found that the police rate antigovernment extremists as a greater threat than reactionary Islamists. The authors wrote that “right-wing violence appears consistently greater than violence by Muslim extremists in the United States since 9/11, according to multiple definitions in multiple datasets.” According to the Department of Homeland Security, “Sovereign Citizens”—fringe antigovernmentalists—launched 24 violent attacks from 2010 through 2014, mostly against law enforcement personnel. When Robert Dear shot and killed three people at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic in 2015, it became the latest in a series of bloody attacks on abortion providers dating back to Roe v. Wade in 1973. In the 30 years that followed that landmark decision, providers and clinics were targeted in more than 300 acts of violence, including arson, bombings, and assassinations, according to a study by the Rand Corporation.

But while the extreme right has held a near-monopoly on political violence since the 1980s, conservatives and Republicans are no more likely to say that using force to achieve one’s political goals is justified than are liberals and Democrats. That’s the conclusion of a study conducted by Nathan Kalmoe, a professor of political communication at the University of Louisiana. In 2010, he asked respondents whether they agreed that various violent tactics were acceptable. Kalmoe found that less than 3 percent of the population strongly agreed that “sometimes the only way to stop bad government is with physical force,” or that “some of the problems citizens have with government could be fixed with a few well-aimed bullets.” He says that while “there were tiny [partisan] variations on these specific items,” they weren’t “statistically significant on average.”

Ideology alone isn’t a significant risk factor for violence. “There’s a much stronger factor of individual personality traits that predispose people to be more aggressive in their everyday lives,” Kalmoe says, “and we see that playing out with people who engage in political violence.” Mass shooters are often found to have had histories of domestic violence, and that was true for James Hodgkinson, the shooter who attacked the congressional baseball practice in Virginia. Kalmoe says, “we often see that violent individuals have a history of violence in their personal lives. People who are abusive, or who have run afoul of the law in other ways, are more likely to endorse violence.”

Political animosity is similarly bipartisan. According to Pew, roughly the same number of Republicans and Democrats—around half—say they feel anger and fear toward the opposing party.

Which raises an important question: If red and blue America fear and loathe one another equally, and a similar number believe that political violence is acceptable, then why is there so much more of it on the fringes of the right?

Part of the answer lies in a clear difference between right and left: For the past 40 years, Republicans, parroting the gun-rights movement, have actively promoted the idea that firearms are a vital bulwark against government tyranny.

Call it the Minutemen theory of gun rights. While the Second Amendment was framed to protect government-organized militias at a time when we had a very small standing army, the right has promoted the idea that it’s “America’s first freedom,” integral to defending our other rights, since the 1960s.

It’s become ubiquitous, from the militia movement that arose in the 1980s and has seen a resurgence in recent years, to the armed standoffs at the Bundy Ranch and the Malheur National Wildlife refuge. It animated Timothy McVeigh to blow up the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, as well as the 2013 Los Angeles airport shooting spree, a 2014 mass shooting in Las Vegas that left two cops and one civilian dead and a number of less dramatic acts of violence.

The belief that democratic government rests on the Second Amendment has become widespread among Americans; one poll found that about two-thirds believe that “their constitutional right to own a gun was intended to ensure their freedom.” But Robert Spitzer, a political scientist at SUNY Cortland and the author of several books on the politics of guns, says that’s a modern idea. While “there’s a long tradition of some in America feeling deeply mistrustful of our government—and there have been incidents throughout our history where people took up arms against the government—the more specific idea that there’s a right to rebel, or that somehow you can keep the government under control by taking up weapons, found its first serious expression in a law review article published in 1960. And the idea really took hold among a subset of Americans and a subset of gun owners, who argue to this day that this was part of the purpose of the Second Amendment. They talk about the Minutemen and the Revolutionary War and the Declaration of Independence. The idea really took hold in the 1970s and 1980s when the NRA itself began to use this same kind of rhetoric.”

It’s also infused right-wing politics beyond the gun lobby. Watering the “tree of liberty” with the “blood of patriots and tyrants” is a common theme in Tea Party circles, where the Gadsden flag—don’t tread on me!—and loose talk of revolution blend seamlessly with mainstream anti-tax ideology and disdain for liberals. While a handful of Democrats competing in red states have run ads featuring them firing weapons, it’s become almost universal in Republican campaigns, where it not only marks a candidate’s opposition to gun-safety legislation but also signals that he or she is ready to wage war against the Washington establishment.

War as a metaphor for politics isn’t limited to the right, but it has become a constant in conservative discourse. “The first shots of the second American civil war have already been fired,” said Alex Jones earlier this month. “We are in a clear-cut cultural civil war,” according to Newt Gingrich. Pat Buchanan offered that we’re “approaching something of a civil war,” and said that it’s time for Trump to “burn down the Bastille.” “You ain’t got any idea of the war that’s raging outside the four walls of the church,” religious-right activist Dave Daubenmire told a crowd of antigay protesters last weekend. “Don’t you understand what’s going on? Don’t you know it’s a war? Don’t you know they want your children? Don’t you understand that those same people singing ‘Jesus loves you this I know’ want to kill us?” Then there’s the quasi-apocalyptic prepper mentality, which holds that we’re on the brink of social collapse so you’d better buy gold and stock up on ammo for when the shit inevitably hits the fan.

Nathan Kalmoe says that there’s “an important distinction to make between people who have more conventional views, versus people who have much more extreme views.” He thinks that, whether on the left or the right, those who are at least somewhat close to the mainstream “probably have a greater commitment to nonviolent approaches to politics and are socialized into nonviolent norms of how participation is supposed to work.” But on the right those lines have become blurred in recent years—Glenn Beck’s goldbuggery, the ravings of the “alt-right” and the Minutemen theory of gun rights have all become features of the larger conservative landscape, even if they’re not quite mainstream.

Kalmoe says that rhetoric alone “isn’t the main cause of political violence, but violent language and vilifying opponents can nudge people in ways that make them think and act more aggressively in politics.” He conducted an experiment that first measured subjects’ aggressive personality traits. Then he exposed them to two imaginary political ads, one that employed mildly violent political rhetoric and one that used neutral language, and he found that those subjects who had already displayed a penchant for aggressive behavior were far more likely to support political violence after being exposed to the violent rhetoric. So it’s not that violent rhetoric causes real-world violence so much as it can “make people who behave aggressively in real-life more likely to endorse violence against political leaders.”

Liberals believe that mature institutions and the separation of powers are what keep tyranny at bay, not an AR-15. If James Hodgkinson looked around himself and saw a president who acts as if he’s above the law and a Congress that’s working in the dark to strip away health insurance from millions of people to finance tax cuts for the wealthy but is unwilling to perform its oversight duties, and decided that he would stand up to tyranny with an assault rifle, he would have taken a theme that’s exceedingly common on the right to its bloody logical conclusion.

Okay, so I finally got some time free to do my 'homework' of listening to the full speech to CAIR by Rep. Ilhan Omar. You can listen to it at normal speed or speed it up on the settings wheel (I did @1.25). That is, if you have time to and you care to get smarter about what the heaven you are writing here.  My observations afterwards:

  1. Representative Ilhan Omar is unapologetic about her religion. (Something most conservatives tend to applaud and champion in others, I might add.)
  2. She is informed about her subject matter.
  3. She is not shy of speaking her mind.
  4. She may even be fierceless.
  5. She is definitely a political activist who gets in front of those who disagree with her views.
  6. You may observe all of the above dynamics in this twenty-plus minute speech.
  7. @14:30 she leads into "9-11" remarks @15:18. (What you will see is the words 'going viral' in the media were a 'blip' in her remarks. Nothing to grandstand on by her or any one else.)

If you listen to this video (at normal speed or sped up) note that the remark on "9-11" is given out of proportion time in the media, on blogs, and beyond than she gave them at CAIR. It was an unremarkable set of words in the sense that she clearly meant to show disdain for the Muslims who crashed planes into those towers. Thus, she refers to those specific Muslims as "somebody" in alienation of them rather than praise or respect.

I am not familiar with that word-- what do you mean by "fierceless"?

(It seems to me that the suffix "-less" means "without" For example,  "fearless" means "without fear". "Homeless" means "without a home". 

Are we then to assume that you are using the word  "fierceless" to mean mean without being fierce? Are you trying to say that "she may even not be fierce?

(The problem with using made up words-- or "special" words the meaning of which is known only to a small "ongroup" is that it makes for confusion in discussions.)

Or am I wrong-- and its merely a typo???

If so? What I stated in comment 15.2 is true. Please read CAIR's  "History" and "Early Years"sections and the valid footnotes/citations:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Council_on_American%E2%80%93Islamic_Relations

Ilhan Omar has made her anti-American and anti-Semitic POVs very clear many times. Nothing anyone says can excuse her despicable comments about the USA and Israel.

One comment that she never makes is that radical Islamic terrorists have been responsible for killing thousands of people on 9/11/2001 as well as in other locations in the world.  

As a naturalized US citizen who was saved as a Somali refugee, she should show more respect and embrace American values.

As far as Ilhan Omar being killed, Nancy Pelosi has set up high tech protection for this very outspoken freshman representative and her family.

Okay, my friend Jasper. I simply have not had the time to look into CAIR's beginning. I am busy these days. However, when I glance it, I won't mind fully supporting your statement!

However, I do want to warn you and others, that though I am a fervent Christian and a true believer, I do not support anybody on either side of an issue taking remarks out of context to promote self interest! Moreover, I think that Rep. Omar should be able to be an activist for Muslim causes. You, rather I, hear a lot of references to her formative years in her twenty plus minute video I shared. So, she is speaking on background and upbringing. Plus, she carries the hopes and dreams of a great many Muslims (in her district?) into the House with her. I say bravo!

If I had to caution her about one thing, it would be something I heard a senior democrat say on Sunday cable shows: 'Ask a senior and fellow democrat for help her, including Speaker Pelosi, those with a great deal of experience, if she has no experience with 'attacks' and opposition politics.'  It will say a great many of these political hiccups which get spun out of control and going viral.

Now then Jasper, did you watch the video of her full speech I posted above? If so, tell me frankly, if that one sentence is not being blown out proportion when it had nothing in context in front of it or in arrears to criticize or praise anyone.

Peace, friend.

P.S. She does not have to speak to Islamic terrorism (though I keep stating I am not acquainted with her 'bio' or 'on background'), any more than I speak to the horrors of negligible (hard-headed) Christians in society and history.

Jasper! I looked in to CAIR's founding (1994) and it LA Chapter (1996), so far I can agree with you that Ms. Omar is off on her founding date and its relationship to 9-11. However, I wish to take this one step farther. I will call CAIR-LA on Wednesday to ask them if they understand what Ms. Omar meant by what apparently is a clear and well-articulated factual error in her remarks. And, one that, unless it can be explained, leads right into her brief remarks about 9-ll.

Islam instructs that all Jews and non believers should be killed if they don't convert.

Why should we believe that she doesn't agree with that?

Where is your evidential count of dead Jews and "infidels" by Ms. Omar' hand, authorization, or conspiracy? Greg, I'll wait. . . .

She did run in a campaign for Congress against a republican, I presume. Comb through oppo.

What DOESN'T the left blame Trump for?  

Obama gets a boil on his ass - Trumps fault

Meuller's investigation comes up empty - Trumps fault

You mean like "Trumps unfit"?  Or "Trump won't last 6 months"?  How about "Trump colluded with Russia"?  Those kind of fairy tale comments?

Imaginary quote.

How about "Trump colluded with Russia"?

Those kind of fairy tale comments?

Trumps unfit - proven only in the demential called the liberal mind

Trump won't last 6 months - actually said by many on the left after Trump handed them their ass.

Meuller, after 2 years, didn't find anything substantial about Trump colluding with Russia.

If Ilhan Omar Is Killed , Will President* Trump Be Held Responsible?

Actually, thinking about that question bring up a related question-- one based on exactly the same style of "Logical" reasoning:

If Trump Is Killed , Will Representative* Ilan Omar Be Held Responsible?

How 'bout if someone ASKED you if they should jump off the bridge and you said "sure, why not" - are you going to jail?

"Good" fish, it would depend on many factors—including how much influence you held sway over someone. Degrees matter.
