In 2016, Minnesota U.S House Representative Illhan Omar asked a judge overseeing the terrorism trials of 9 men charged with attempting to join the Islamic State to show “compassion” in sentencing them.
Omar was a Minnesota state representative-elect at the time, and deemed it necessary to write a letter to Judge Michael Davis, requesting that he show leniency to one defendant, Abdirahman Yasin Daud, in sentencing. Daud had been arrested as one of nine Somali men from the Twin Cities area who plotted to obtain passports as a mean to travel to Syria and join the Islamic State terrorist organization.
Prosecutors had requested a sentence of thirty years for Daud, and similarly lengthy prison terms for the other defendants who didn’t cooperate with the counter-terrorist investigation as government informants.
Omar saw this prison sentence as too punitive for the aspiring terrorist, and called for a more lenient sentence to imposed upon Daud and the other aspiring jihadis after conviction.
In Omar’s letter to Judge Davis, she asserted that “the best deterrent to fanaticism is compassion,” and that the government should “refocus [its] efforts on inclusion and rehabilitation.”
She went on to assert that the gravitation of the Somali youth towards the violent and terroristic vision of the Islamic state had come as a consequence of circumstances that left them no choice. “The desire to commit violence is not inherent to people — it is the consequences of systematic alienation; people seek violent solutions when the process established for enacting change is inaccessible to them.”
Omar’s apologism for nine wannabe ISIS jihadis is striking in its boldness and shamelessness- treating young men who actively sought to join up with one of the world’s most dangerous and bloodthirsty terrorist cults as if they were mere babies with a reduced measure of responsibility for their own actions.
Omar’s generous extension of good faith with the nine wannabe mujahideen didn’t seem to manifest itself in a recent episode involving a very different group of young men. Omar recently rushed to judgement to condemn the actions of the boys of Covington Catholic, who were falsely accused of harassing a Native American man in what has now been revealed to be a media-sponsored hate hoax.
Omar accused the boys of “taunting five black men-“ completely ignoring the fact that the five black men in question were members of the Black Hebrew Israelite movement, a fringe supremacist cult. The men in question had in fact been the ones taunting the young high school boys, shouting profanities and sexual slurs at them in addition to racial abuse.
If only the patriotic young men of Covington Catholic were as worthy of good faith as nine men who sought to join ISIS, in the mind of the member of Congress from Minnesota.
Left-Wing Extremist Charged in Alleged Florida Capitol Attack Identified Soros as “Sponsor”
Daniel Alan Baker had bragged of a Soros sponsorship.
A left-wing extremist arrested and charged with a terrorist plot to confront and kidnap protestors at the Florida Capitol identified billionaire George Soros as his “sponsor” in a YouTube video. Daniel Alan Baker, 33, has been federally charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.
Baker appears to have fought overseas with a Kurdish militia group identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department, the Marxist PKK. He’s an Army veteran who appears to have been discharged after going AWOL before a deployment.
Baker has been charged for an alleged plot involving a group of armed leftists surrounding pro-Trump protestors at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. It’s unclear if right-wing protestors even intend to demonstrate at the site, and Baker’s dangerous attempt to incite an armed confrontation may never have advanced beyond speculative stages.
A “call to arms” flier seen on Baker’s YouTube channel calls for Florida residents to surround supposed “racists” and to “trap them inside” the State Capitol, advocating for the kidnapping of supposed Inauguration demonstrators.
In a YouTube video calling for doxxing attempts on individuals present at the raucous US Capitol riot, Baker brags of having acquired the globalist oligarch as a “sponsor,” implying that the megabillionaire had provided him with an “antifa card.”
Baker’s remarks may have been hyperbole, intentionally seeking to draw attention from critics of the Hungarian-born liberal kingpin.
A charging affidavit also alleges that Baker advocated for the assassination of United States military officers on his YouTube channel, a threat that could potentially incur even more serious criminal charges.
The FBI believes that Baker intended to assassinate Turkish military personnel training in the United States, and that he was on the scene during Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist rebellion. Baker identified himself as a “hardcore leftist” on his personal social media, as well, urging his followers to “prepare for war” after the November 3rd election.
