Ilhan Omar Attacked On Easter For ‘Christianity’ Tweet

16

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., expressed outrage over a video of Christians singing on a plane, leading many Republicans to attack her for what they suggested was anti-Christian bigotry.

Omar shared a video Saturday evening in which a worship leader with a guitar sings Christian worship music on an airplane. 

“I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I am on a plane,” Omar, who is Muslim, wrote with the video. “How do you think it will end?”

Many Republican candidates responded, suggesting that Omar had expressed hatred or bigotry against Christians.

“Why do you hate Christians, Ilhan?” Vernon Jones, a Black pro-Trump former Democrat who is running to represent Georgia in the U.S. House of Representatives, asked. “If the freedom of religion we enjoy here in America disturbs you, feel free to pack your bags and head back to Somalia, Sudan, or wherever you’re from. Take your brother with you.”

“In America, Muslims can & do pray in public,” Jose Castillo, a Republican candidate running for Congress in Florida’s 9th Congressional District, tweeted. “If she wants a country where Christians aren’t allowed to do the same [Omar] should go back to her own country,” he added, presumably referring to Somalia, where she was born. (Omar is a naturalized U.S. citizen.)

“Qatar – a country you’re very familiar with – plays Islamic prayers on the intercom before takeoff on their planes,” Cicely Davis, a candidate in the GOP primary in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, which Omar represents, tweeted in response to her opponent. “They have a designated prayer area & coordinates for Mecca are posted on the screens. It’s no problem. The issue is you hate Christians & Jews & lots of Muslims.”

Royce White, another candidate in the GOP primary for Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, also chimed in.

“I’m coming for your seat,” White tweeted in response to Omar. “Don’t disrespect Christianity! You’re a globalist fraud. You can’t pray in Pelosi’s office! The Democrats you serve don’t believe in God. Their platform is openly anti-God. Minneapolis will not become Mogadishu. We will not bend the knee.”

The original context for the video remains unclear. Omar took it from the Twitter account @davenewworld_2, which has the name “Fifty Shades of Whey.” Reports claim the video had been shot by Jack Jensz Jr., who leads a group called Kingdom Realm Ministries. The original posting appears to have been deleted, however.

Neither Omar’s campaign office nor her spokesman immediately responded to an after-hours media request from Fox News Digital, but Omar did retweet Deadspin sportswriter Chuck Modi, who shot back at the responses Omar received on social media.

“Ilhan Omar: Makes very valid point,” Modi wrote. “Right-wingers who hate Ilhan Omar: ‘You are ‘attacking Christianity’ because I am stupid or dishonest or just pandering to my bigoted base.’”

    1. shirley stadtmueller says

      Why is she in our country??

  2. Richard says

    Why this person causes such statements about singing a Christian song does not make any sense .
    Here is a person who married a relative and was married and nothing has been done to her .
    Voters should think twice before voting for this person .
    Get her out os office

    1. shirley stadtmueller says

      She should be removed from office. Dont wait for another vote. She creates racism. People with her values should be booted out of office!

  3. Dee says

    The epitome of; “she bites the hand that feeds her.”
    May sound moronic but she needs to leave this country, she’s obviously NOT happy!

  4. Cyn says

    This hateful, anti-American, anti-Constitution pos should be removed from government office, have her citizenship rescinded and deported along with any of her family supporting the same Anti-American sentiment. She’s worthless and does not follow the oath of office that she took. IMO, she is a terrorist to our country!

    Why is this woman in our country? She represents nothing that should be here. Why is it that she doesn’t go home? At least she would be with like minded people. Ooh! I forgot! She wouldn’t have the easy like that she sucks up here. What a pig.

  10. FLAK says

    her district is primarily Muslim,, they spew their bigotry openly on their streets,,they want to have it their way, just like back home with the enforcement of Shariah Law

    In this and only this issue I actually can see her point. If I had no concept of her politics and controversial stand on geopolitical issues regarding the Muslim community and of course the radicals of that faith’s willingness to use extreme and deadly means to further their own beliefs this comment by her would stand on it’s own merit. Unfortunately that’s not the case. That being said I seriously doubt anyone who has responded to this message I’m a negative way would truly be acceptant of Muslim Prayers or songs on an airplane. When Omar made this specific statement I knew immediately she was correct. I’m as far from either Muslim or Woke but right is right. We are a nation of Jedeau Christian values and most still lean in that direction often because our laws and values are based on same yet we should consider those who may not wish to hear these things particularly in area in which one cannot escape it. The problem lies in that those who may not agree would be looked at and possibly be treated with derision and that’s not what we are about in America. Freedom Of Religion absolutely but it’s not a requirement to ascribe to one particular religion. Tribalism has become the norm in politics today but we should judge all things by their merit rather than regurgitating political talking points. In the end we all are Americans and therefore should at least consider the opposite viewpoints and accept those most reasonable.
    God Bless America

      Her religion is none of your business, just as her’s is none of your’s. Otherwise, you’re in the wrong country.

  12. Charles Coetzee says

    And in what Muslim state would you be given the liberty to attack its faith? You have come to America to b anti American go back to your shit hole simalia

  13. Richard Dutton says

    I wonder how many on that plan, also had different religious faiths? So why would hers be so important?
    It has been that way every
    since this country was founded! They all came here to get away from religious persecution, and you want to stir it up all over again. Trouble is your middle name!!
