Dem Rep. Tlaib: Ilhan Omar Is ‘an Easier Target’ Because She’s Black and Muslim

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) said the bipartisan outrage over controversial remarks made about Israel by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was “because she’s Muslim and because she’s black, she’s an easier target for them to attack.” Tlaib said, “I think she becomes an easier target is what I’m trying to say. I don’t understand why some others can say similar, probably things that could be said to be Antisemitic that are not being held to the same standard. That’s what I’m saying.” She continued, “So…

Media Silence Surrounds Muslim Massacre of Christians

Political leaders and public figures were falling over themselves this weekend to condemn the mosque attacks in New Zealand, while dozens of Christians were slaughtered by Muslims in Nigeria to the sound of crickets.

Presidents, prime ministers, royalty, and religious leaders rushed to extend their condolences to victims and their families — as well they should — while decrying the hate that purportedly motivated the shootings. Without exception, the mainstream media gave top billing to the shootings,…

Liberal Analyst: White Democrats Have a God Problem

White Democrats are invoking God far less than their predecessors, referring to religious faith as a source of division rather than unity, according to an analysis by Professor Peter Beinart of the City University of New York. A striking quality of the presidential campaign announcements by leading white, progressive candidates from the Democrat Party is the absence of any positive mention of faith, wrote Beinart, a liberal political commentator, in the Atlantic Friday. Unlike Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, Barack Obama, and even Hillary Clinton — who all invoked…

New Zealand Shooter Hopes for U.S. Civil War: ‘Conservatism Is Dead, Thank God’

The New Zealand shooter’s manifesto, which will not be linked to here, is a mix of avowed white supremacist sentiment and suggested tactics to fellow extremists — including his declared intention to exploit racial, cultural, and political divisions in the U.S. According to his manifesto, the shooter — who massacred civilians at two mosques in New Zealand’s city of Christchurch — appears to subscribe to a number of ideologies. The document is riddled with white nationalist talking points, and the shooter describes himself as a “fascist.” He also castigates Muslims…
