Ilhan Omar Floats Ad Boycott of Tucker Carlson

In his rant Tuesday night, Carlson described Omar as "living proof that the way we practice immigration has become unsafe to this country" and accused the Minnesota congresswoman and other migrants of "undermining" the United States.

Omar, who emigrated from Somalia to the U.S.as a child, laughed at Carlson's screed.

Carlson saw some advertisers sever business with his show previous year after he said that immigrants make the country "poorer and dirtier" while displaying images of trash.

"Not gonna lie, it's kinda fun watching a racist fool like this weeping about my presence in Congress", the representative wrote on Twitter.

"I grew up in an extremely unjust society, and the only thing that made my family excited about coming to the United States was that the United States was supposed to be the country that guaranteed justice to all", she recently told a group of high school students.

Ilhan Omar has an bad lot to be grateful for, but she isn't grateful.

I was in a good position, but perhaps it would have been better to be a few places closer. I feel good, my shape is good and there are still opportunities to come".

Carlson expressed offense at Omar's statements in the story in order to make the argument that she "isn't grateful" for opportunities in the United States, and in a monologue implied immigrants who express criticism of the USA are not a worthy of entry. Omar is also one of just two Muslim women serving in Congress, the other being fellow freshmen progressive Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib of MI. He also accused Omar of having "undisguised contempt for the United States and for its people".

In another tweet, Omar responded by calling Carlson a "racist fool" and laughing about the commentary. Only in this country could it have happened.

"She might have had a prior [arrest]", Omar said, according to the newspaper. She's part of the freshmen progressive Democrats, most notably Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, that have clashed with the party's leadership on multiple issues.

It is not exaggerating to say that Carlson's words are unsafe and have real potential to inspire violence against Omar as well as other immigrants and Muslim communities. Carlson is "weeping about the fact that we have an African-born member of Congress, the type of people that the likes of him think come from shithole countries", the Minnesota Democrat continued, referring to President Donald Trump's alleged remarks about several African nations.

"Virtually every public statement she makes accuses Americans of bigotry and racism", he said. "A system created to strengthen America is instead undermining it". After the woman was fined $80 for the crime, Omar said she couldn't control her emotions and yelled, "Bulls-t!" in the courtroom.

He also says that maybe the problem is that we're "importing people from places whose values are simply antithetical to ours". She's a living fire alarm, a warning to the rest of us we better change our immigration system immediately.
