When race-baiting backfires…

A Minnesota congresswoman suggested that Latinos could not qualify to immigrate to the United States under a merit based system in a now-deleted Tweet that some viewed as racist.

“A ‘merit based’ immigration policy is fueled by racism toward the Latinx community,” said Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). “Our immigration policies shouldn’t be based on discrimination, fear, or bigotry. We should welcome immigrants to our country and offer a simple pathway to citizenship.”

Omar later deleted the Tweet, and received backlash from Republicans, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

“As the son of a Cuban immigrant whose Dad came to get a math degree and become a computer programmer, I’m troubled that Dems seem to believe Hispanic immigrants can’t qualify for skills-based legal immigration. Bringing in more scientists, engineers and doctors is good for US jobs,” Cruz Tweeted.

Imam Mohamad Tawhidi took a shot at Omar, too.

“Remind us please, who did your brother marry to get to the USA? I forgot,” he said, referring to several reports that Omar married her brother in an alleged immigration fraud scheme.

Omar is no stranger to racism controversy, having been accused of anti-Semitism several times during her short tenure as a freshman congresswoman.

Big League Politics reported:

Democrats led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have decided to try to formally denounce Minnesota Democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitism with a House floor resolution to be introduced Wednesday, though it remains unclear if Democrats will formally denounce Omar by name for her anti-Israel comments.

Politico reports that “The resolution, which is still being finalized, comes after a backlash from top Democrats who accused Omar of anti-Semitism for referring to pro-Israel advocates’ ‘allegiance to a foreign country’…House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), began drafting the text of the resolution over the weekend as the confrontation between Omar and her colleagues unfolded on Twitter. Two of the House’s most senior Democrats — Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel and Appropriations Chairwoman Nita Lowey — called Omar out in public statements, demanding she apologize.”

Omar’s anti-Semitism is finally riling the corridors of responsible rhetoric, albeit months after Omar was elected to Congress.

HUH? Matt Gaetz Helps Disgraced Globalist RINO Scott Turner Attempt Return to Congress

Gaetz’s association with this RINO is worrisome.

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has gained a reputation as a Congressman who embodies “America First” principles, but he will be fundraising for a disgraced RINO from Virginia who hopes to regain a Congressional seat he lost in 2018 due to his campaign’s corrupt actions.

Gaetz will be appearing with former Congressman Scott Taylor on Thursday in Newport News, Va. for a “meet and greet” at 2nd Street, an American Bistro. There is also a private roundtable event with Gaetz and Taylor that is available to those willing to pay an unlisted price for access to the duo.

Taylor lost his 2nd District Congressional seat to former Navy commander Elaine Luria, a Democrat, in the 2018 mid-term elections after only one term in office. Luria defeated Taylor by a 51 to 48 margin, as voters rejected Taylor following an embarrassing petitions scandal.

Taylor’s team was accused by Democrats of forging ballot signatures for a third-party candidate in a desperate attempt to split the vote. Judge Gregory Rupe ruled that the concerns of the lawsuit filed by Democrats were valid, and the independent candidate was thrown off of the ballot as a result. Taylor’s staffer would eventually be indicted for campaign fraud as a result of the actions taken for the campaign.

“Scott Taylor is a disgrace,” said Waverly Wood, Founder of the Virginia Freedom Caucus. “He’s an embarrassment to the party. This is exactly what you would expect from the RINO establishment.”

Big League Politics has reported on Taylor’s sad history as a RINO in Congress, supporting open borders and attending a Soros-funded globalist summit.

“This bottom feeding Washington group, NumbersUSA, is being completely disingenuous with this BS Ad. This is a group that raises money off people’s fears,” Taylor said of the anti-illegal immigration organization that pointed out his support for amnesty.

Taylor also spoke in favor of foreign aid to the Soros-funded Global Citizen summit in Sept. 2017.

“Good evening fellow Global Citizens,” he said. “It’s great to be here and an honor to represent Virginia.”

“Now is not the time to cut foreign aid,” Taylor said during his speech that lasted about a minute.

His appearance at the blatantly globalist event can be seen here:

The connections between Gaetz and Taylor go back several years, as the men have campaigned with each other and exchanged contributions between their respective campaign committees.

Open Secrets shows that the Friends Of Matt Gaetz committee donated $2,000 to Taylor’s campaign to help the disgraced RINO get his Congressional seat back. Records retrieved from FEC.gov also show that Scott Taylor for Congress gave Gaetz’s Congressional campaign $2,000 in Aug. 2018.

It is impossible to know Gaetz’s motives, as he did not respond to the request from Big League Politics to explain his associations with the RINO Taylor.
