(TheConservativeNews.org) – The idea that all Trump supporters are racists is not a new one. Figures on the Left have insisted on peddling this narrative for the last four years, and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has consistently been one of the worst offenders.
On Monday, November 16, Omar made yet another grossly offensive remark about Conservative voters. During a live interview with the Washington Post, she referred to Donald Trump’s campaign events as “Klan rallies.”
In case anyone needs reminding, the Ku Klux Klan is a white supremacist hate group that perpetrates unspeakable acts of violence. To Ilhan Omar, there is no distinction between members of this group and anyone who supports Donald Trump (the latter being roughly half of America).
It’s not shocking to hear this kind of accusation leveled at Trump supporters anymore, especially when it comes from Rep. Omar. That said, it’s incredible that such a senior public representative feels comfortable defaming the very people she serves.
