Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has been credibly accused of holding anti-Semitic views based on her public statements, secretly gave speeches at fundraising events of terrorism linked organizations.
Omar attended and spoke at a fundraising dinner for Islamic Relief Worldwide, a global charitable organization that nearly had its government funding stripped due to its close relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood.
She spoke at their Emergency Benefit Dinner for Yemen in Tampa, Florida on February 23, and was listed as the event’s featured speaker.
Islamic Relief Worldwide has been banned in several countries due to its close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, according to the Washington Free Beacon. While the Obama administration gave funding to the group, making it difficult to stop in the Trump administration, the group has been banned outright in the United Arab Emirates and in Israel due to its terrorist ties.
The countries believe that the organization secretly funnels its money to the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Washington Free Beacon also reported that Omar spoke at an event for CAIR-CA PAC in California, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, “a group that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-funding incident.”
Big League Politics’ Laura Loomer traveled to California to confront Omar during the closed door speech over the weekend.
It is worth noting that while CAIR is largely considered a sponsor of terrorism, Fox News suspended Judge Jeanine Pirro after CAIR requested they do so, and that they condemn Pirro’s remarks. Pirro had simply questioned whether an individual can adhere to Sharia Law and uphold an oath to the United States Constitution.
Because of the closed doors nature of these events, Omar’s remarks are unknown, sparking more controversy for the newly minted congresswoman.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
