DERSHOWITZ: It’s Time To Primary Ilhan Omar

Published

on

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz wants controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar out of Congress.
Earlier this week, Dershowitz called for Democrats to defeat her in her next primary.
On Fox News, Dershowitz said “The Democrats must marginalize her and distance her from the center of the party. And I hope she’ll be primaried, and she should be beaten in a primary by people who support the United States and people who support American allies, rather than people who support American enemies.””

In the last few weeks, Omar has garnered controversy for asserting that the Jewish lobby has too much power in DC.

After pressure from House Democratic leaders, Omar apologized, but continued scuffling with Jewish Democratic lawmakers over the past weekend.

Congresswoman Nita Lowey called out Omar’s remarks for saying that Jewish lawmakers have an allegiance to a foreign country like Israel. Omar responded, “Our democracy is built on debate, Congresswoman! I have not mischaracterized our relationship with Israel, I have questioned it and that has been clear from my end.”

Dershowitz believes that Omar is misinterpreting Lowey’s support for a U.S. ally.

He continued:

“For her to accuse Jewish members of Congress and non-Jewish members of Congress of dual loyalty because they support America’s allies … would you accuse somebody of dual loyalty if they supported England, if they supported France and other American allies?”

In Dershowitz’s view, Omar pulled a “bait and switch” in the House, because she originally did not campaign on an anti-Israel platform, but is now honing in on the issue.

Indeed, Ilhan Omar’s stint in Congress has been controversial across the board.

Her efforts to challenge seasoned agents of the military-industrial complex like Elliot Abrahams are laudable, but her presence in Congress comes with a ton of baggage.

Ties to radical Islamists and other nefarious actors sully some of her otherwise sensible actions like grilling Elliot Abrams.

Although the U.S. should maintain a restrained foreign policy, it should at least lend cultural and moral support to countries like Israel. After all, Israel is the most westernized and modern nation in the Middle East.

There is validity in criticizing Israel for some of its policies, but criticizing it in order to advance pro-Islamist talking points is the not best course of action.

All things considered, it’s time that the voters of Minnesota’s 5th district relieve Omar of the burden of holding public office.

Rival Candidate Spreads Fake News Attacks Against Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Published

on

Shelley Luther, the candidate for Texas’ Senate District 30, is beginning to face heat from her rivals in the Senate seat’s special election.

One of her opponents, Drew Springer, the State Representative for Texas’s 68th District, called her out for supposed hypocrisy on the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

On Facebook he commented, “Shelley Luther sang a different tune about forced COVID-19 shutdowns before she realized she could use it for her political benefit.

While she thought her record could be deleted from Facebook, there was only so long she could hide. #ShutdownShelley

Springer referred to a comment Luther made on March 16 where she said “Just my opinion. If some major cities are closing down building where large gatherings occur, then EVERY city should. The problem will not fix if some people are out and about.”

However, several users commenting on Springer’s Facebook post were quick to point out some nuances in Luther’s comments.

The main gist of their comments was that Luther said that it didn’t make any sense for a few venues to remain open and others not be closed.  In essence, she was calling for policy consistency, not for selective enforcement of lockdowns.

Luther made a name for herself earlier this year when she resisted the city of Dallas’ shutdown order and continued operating her business in defiance of this ordinance.

She would later face jail time for her refusal to comply but would later be pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Luther has received endorsements from organizations such as Texas Gun Rights PAC for her staunch liberty activism and commitment to American principles such as the Second Amendment.

The Dallas salon owner is one of the more high-profile state level candidates running for office and has become a national figure of resistance against the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

A Luther victory would represent a major win for Texas conservatives who have been disappointed with the legislative body’s performance over the years.
