Rep. Ilhan Omar was in the news again for saying idiotic things. During a rally called the “Black Woman in Defense of Ilhan Omar”, she stated that she considers Angela Davis as an idol and an inspiration in life.
If you don’t know who Angela Davis is, she is a communist who supported the Soviet Union, aided a terrorist plot, and has spit anti-Semite vile in the past. During the 60s and 70s, Davis was a member of the Black Panther Party and was caught purchasing guns to murder a judge. She was able to make it on the FBI’s top 10 most wanted list before being caught. Although she was found not guilty of the actual murder, there is little doubt she knew and helped the plot.
Her political views are also controversial enough so it is strange to see someone praise her as she supports the very anti-Semitic “Nation of Islam” and is always defending Louis Farrakhan. She has also publicly support communist dictatorship, including stating that Jews “deserved what they got.”
Despite all that is known about her, the mainstream media paints her as a “activist and scholar.”
Well, it seems the mainstream media are scared to point out how idiotic it is for Ilhan Omar to even claim Angela Davis as an “idol.”
