A Democratic Party candidate for U.S. Congress in North Carolina has refunded a donation from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), citing the freshman congresswoman’s “divisiveness.”
“Dan McCready has refunded a $2000 donation from Rep. Ilhan Omar. A spokesperson for McCready tells me Dan believes there is no place for divisiveness in politics and he didn’t feel it was appropriate to accept the donation,” according to WSOCTV’s Joe Bruno.

McCready is running in a special election for North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District seat.
The Minnesota congresswoman has been dogged by controversy since she took office, first for her anti-Semitism, which she has displayed on multiple occasions, and then for her flippant attitude towards the worst terrorist attack in United States history. Omar described the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the The Pentagon by saying “some people did something,” in a video that recently resurfaced.
For the latter, she was recently slammed by President Donald J. Trump.
Big League Politics reported:
President Donald J. Trump posted a video to Twitter showing footage from the horrific 9/11 terrorist attacks alongside anti-Semitic Freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s description of the attacks as “some people did something.”
Rep. Omar has received endless push back to her characterization of the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something,” and now President Trump has chimed in with a powerful video posted to his Twitter.
The video starts with Omar telling viewers that “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something,” then shows striking footage of the burning towers as the second plane hit, smoke billowing out of the Pentagon, and various news reports showing shocked reporters trying to come to grips with the largest terrorist attack on the United States.
President Trump’s video repeatedly replays Omar’s comment, showing different footage of the carnage and the survivors throughout. The president captioned the video with the text “We will never forget” written in all capital letters.

Deranged Democrat Demands Prosecution of 40,000 Trump Supporters Who Were OUTSIDE Capitol
Guilt by association.
Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee implied that every protestor who was outside of the Capitol on January 6th should face criminal prosecution in a Tuesday tweet threat, utilizing a “guilt-by-association” theory more commonly associated with the criminal justice system of third world countries.
Jackson Lee falsely claimed that the 40,000 protestors who arrived in the area of the Capitol in January all intended to overturn the election by killing the Speaker of the House, Mike Pence, and Members of Congress. In reality, there’s little to no reason that anyone outside of small handful of easily manipulated cosplayers intended to become seriously violent.
2/4 alleged that 40,000 protesters were in DC with the mindset to overturn a legitimate election and to kill the Speaker, the Vice President, and Members of Congress, in that instance, only 300 persons have now been arrested and are being prosecuted. What kind of justice is that?

Only a small minority of the protestors present at the January 6th protest engaged in any criminal trespassing and violent conduct. Peaceful protestors present at the event in fact urged those breaking boundaries to stop, likening them to Antifa criminals. Hundreds of individuals present at the event are being prosecuted- in some cases, on dubious grounds. Jackson Lee’s proposal would criminalize peaceful protest in a direct fashion.
Jackson Lee compared the peaceful protestors to Portland’s enduring anarchist criminal movement, ignoring that the January 6th event hasn’t repeated on a nightly basis in a fashion analogous to the anarcho-tyrannical city. While street criminals have been arrested at the Portland protests, Multnomah County’s left-wing prosecutor, Mike Schmidt, has consistently dropped criminal charges against nearly every arrestee involved in left-wing street violence.
1/4 Testimony today on the Hill evidences that in the Portland protests, a thousand people were arrested. People protesting against the violence that was evidenced in the George Floyd murder. People wanting good things to happen. In Washington DC on January 6th, where it is

Lee also likened left-wing rioters in Portland to “good people wanting good things to happen,” excusing systemic violence because she supports the aims of those who commit it.
Under the fist of anarcho-tyranny, there is no such thing as a neutral standard of “law.” There’s domination- impunity for those who obey those who wield the levers of political power, and severity against those who dare to challenge it though peaceful protest.
