Ah, in house fighting. I love seeing the Democrats tear themselves apart.
Rep. Ilhan Omar blasted MSNBC host Joy Reid for her comments about Muslims, in which she compared President Donald Trump's supporters to “the way Muslims act.”
She accused patriots of being radicalized terrorists...since when is loving your country and wanting to put America first a bad thing? We aren't the ones burning down our cities and murdering police officers.
"When leaders, let’s say in the Muslim world, talk a lot of violent talk and encourage their supporters to be willing to commit violence including on their own bodies in order to win against whoever they decide is the enemy, we in the U.S. media describe that as they are ‘radicalizing’ these people, particularly when they’re radicalizing young people," Reid said.
“That’s how we talk about the way Muslims act,” she added. “When you see what Donald Trump is doing, is that any different from what we describe as radicalizing people?”
“Honestly, this kinda of casual Islamophobia is hurtful and dangerous,” Omar tweeted in response. “We deserve better and an apology for the painful moment for so many Muslims around our country should be forthcoming.”

Zakir Khan, board chair of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Oregon, said Reid’s remarks were “so unbelievably Islamophobic it’s ridiculous,” questioning whether the host plans to apologize after she chose to “stereotype an entire group of Muslims.”
“This isn’t even subtle,” Civil rights lawyer Zahra Billoo wrote in a tweet. “It’s blatant Islamophobia @JoyAnnReid.”
Muslim Advocates, a civil rights organization, has called for an apology from Reid for “spreading the false, dangerous myth that Muslims are inherently radical and violent.” The group also suggested that MSNBC “needs to take action to ensure anti-Muslim bigotry has no place on its network.”
Self-proclaimed conservative Jennifer Rubin rushed to Reid’s aide with a social media post attempting to clarify her remarks.
“This is hugely misleading,” Rubin wrote, before expressing her distaste with the outlet that published the piece. “She was making the point about a double standard. She was not AGREEING with it. Disappointed Slate would go with this.”

The left is so discombobulated, they don't even know what side they're on. Here's a thought, let's start putting Americans first and put the nonsense behind us!

Michael Moore Panics Over Trump Popularity: 'Wake Up... Can't Blame This One on Russia!'
Far-left documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is in full-blown panic mode! With the election just around the corner and President Donald Trump's popularity soaring, the never-Trumper is begging his followers to "wake up" because they "can't blame this one on the PO or Russia."
“Someone needs to pull the fire alarm NOW,” Moore wrote on Twitter, "Where are the stories about Trump gaining on Biden? Below’s a poll from Fri in Michigan. Last week Trump pulled within 4 pts of Biden. Now in one poll Trump is AHEAD of Biden in MI 47-45. Yet so many Dems convinced Trump’ll lose. DANGER!”
Joe Biden: Trump Supporters are ‘an Armed Militia in This Country’
The grim creeper is back at it! Former Vice President Joe Biden left his basement long enough to bash President Trump and his supporters. He called Donny J's supporters “an armed militia in this country” during his speech on violence, Monday afternoon.
"This president, long ago, forfeited any moral leadership in this country. He can’t stop the violence because for years he’s fomented it. You know, he may believe mouthing the words “law and order” makes him strong. But his failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country shows how weak he is," Biden said. "Does anyone believe there’ll be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected?"
Antifa Terrorists Attack And Set Fire To Apartment Building in Portland
Something that I've been predicting all along, ever since the riots broke out is the terrorizing of citizens in their own homes.

Biden Hints That He's Hard on Rioters While Kamala Harris Helps Bail Criminals Out of Jail
I really wonder if former Vice President Joe Biden has been taking cues from CNN lately because he did just what Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon said that he should do. He is just a puppet after all though.
What I mean is that the he finally spoke up and addressed the rioting and looting happening right now.
Kenosha Police Department Discovers Troubling Trend After Arresting 175 Criminals
The unrest in Kenosha has died down significantly since President Trump sent in the National Guard. As a result, there have been many people arrested, almost 200 people actually.
What's really insane about this though is that out of a total of 175 people arrested in Kenosha since the rioting began, 102 come from outside the city.
