Over the weekend, Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said in a statement that since President Donald Trump tweeted about her, she has seen an increase in the threats against her life. Speaker Pelosi (D-Calif.) has worked to get increased security for Omar and her family. We here at The Daily Flash stand with Rep. Omar against the hatred being spewed toward her.
The death threats against Rep. Omar are abhorrent and show the kind of extremism that permeates on the Right. The rage coming from the Right by people spewing spin about the supposed “extremist” from Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District is palpable. People are entitled to their own opinions, but the Anti-Omar crowd would do better if they wouldn’t be fighting this supposed “extremist” with their own extremist ways.
Calling someone a “terrorist” and then threatening to do something that would be real, actual terrorism is stupid and shows that many Trump loyalists don’t really think much before they speak. Their anti-Muslim views get in the way of logic.
