Never Trump Dweeb Ben Shapiro Ends Up Defending Ilhan Omar
President Trump held a controversial rally yesterday in North Carolina where attendees chanted “Send Her Back” in reference to Somali Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
Trump singled her out for her record of anti-Semitic and anti-American remarks.
Immediately, the Left pounced to criticize these chants as racist.
In the same vein, counter-signalers on the establishment Right were quick to condemn these chants.
One of them was the notorious Never Trumper Ben Shapiro.
He tweeted in response to these chants, “Vile. Omar is awful. She is a radical anti-Semite with terrible views. She is also an American citizen and chanting for her deportation based on her exercise of the First Amendment is disgusting.”

The next day Trump actually disavowed these chants as well.
However, there’s a much bigger picture that Shapiro and company overlook.
First off, these chants were harmless in nature. At worst, they were WWE style chants.
There are no calls from Trump nor any Republicans to deport Omar for her comments.
Are these comments in bad taste? Maybe. However, suggesting that this will lead to any deportation of the Congresswoman is patently absurd.
Unless these chants manifest themselves into an actual movement to deport Representatives llhan Omar, this is much ado about nothing.
The same conservatives complaining about these chants are the same ones who chanted about the “WMD” and “imminent threat” narrative during the Iraq War. But in that case, it turned into concrete political action.
The fact remains that the modern-day Left is openly calling for the destruction of American culture. And they are ultimately acting on it. The politically correct agenda continues in full effect and will likely not stop anytime soon unless the Right confronts it head on. Shapiro and company can complain all they want, but the primary threat is coming from the radical Left, not those on the Right who make off-color remarks.
We can debate, whether or not some comments are in bad taste, but we should never forget that the Left is not only launching inflammatory comments, but they are following through with their tyrannical agenda.
It’s the follow-up action that truly counts.
