Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is taking identity politics to a whole different level.
Breitbart reports that at a rally organized by Black Lives Matter and other anti-Trump groups in Washington DC, activists rallied around a call to censure President Donald Trump for Omar’s polemical statement that “somebody did something” on 9-11.
The crowd of activists chanted “Hands off Ilhan” and then blamed President Donald Trump and Republicans for the rise of “white supremacy masked as white nationalism.”
Omar got a turn to speak at the event where she praised her homeland of Somalia and said that Trump and the Republican Party are responsible for attacks on synagogues and mosques.
Additionally, the freshman Congresswoman claimed that she is criticized because she is a Muslim woman.
In a mocking tone, Omar said “I also happen to be a refugee and immigrant from what they call one of the shithole countries.”
Omar added, “The reality is that shithole country raised a very proud, dignified person.”
The congresswoman had choice words for the United States saying that “This is not going to be the country of the xenophobics.”
She then forcefully proclaimed that this “is not going to be the country of white people.”
Finally, Omar highlighted that America “was founded on the history of Native American genocide, on the backs of black slaves but also by immigrants.”
However, Omar’s anti-semitic remarks and her dubious connections to certain Islamist groups have raised her concerns about her judgement.
For these reasons, some Democrats are considering putting up a primary challenge against her according to BLP reports.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
