Ilhan Omar: "Some People Did Something"

I don't see a damn thing wrong with what she said.
And she's right: some people did something [horrible]...and many Muslims paid a price for it.
You can make all sorts of things sound sinister by framing them cleverly and playing them over and over.
As for death threats...well, I don't doubt it in this case. But people--especially persons of the left--currently overplay that pretty dramatically. Most of what they characterize as death threats are really more like "I will be happy if you die." Which, where I come from, doesn't come close to counting as a death threat. Anything shy of Ahmma kill ya' ass, motherf*cker is just playful banter...
But, anyway, the right is totally full of shit on this one, IMO.

The right has been gunning for Omar since her "why should I pledge allegiance to Israel?" comments. Not only is that a legitimate question, but it takes world-class mental gymnastics to construe those remarks as even minimally anti-semitic-- a challenge the right was apparently well-equipped to meet. This is not to say that there are not anti-semitic folks do not say such things, but, ya know, affirming the consequent and all that.

The article you posted is business as usual.
