You may think because you haven’t heard Rachel Maddow’s name in the news lately that she’s laying low.
Well, you’d be wrong, in fact she’s going to be the subject of quite a few more stories here in the future.
And all because Rachel Maddow violated this major rule by what she allowed Ilhan Omar to say about Trump.
Now, it may be a stretch to call this person a Taliban lawmaker outright.
Yes, she supports the same kind of barbaric law the Taliban adheres to in the Middle East.
And yes, she’s vocally endorsed the rights of the Taliban and other dangerous Islamic groups to wage war against Israel and America.
And no, she didn’t condemn the Taliban attacks on 9/11.
But to call her a Taliban lawmaker isn’t 100% true.
And that’s because she’s a U.S. Congresswoman – which is frightening.
It’s frightening that Ilhan Omar openly holds these beliefs and Americans still elected her to the U.S. Congress.
In the same way, it’s disturbing a prominent “journalist” like Rachel Maddow would have Omar on her show and let her spill her vitriol on the airwaves.
But that’s what happened and there could be hell to pay for it.
Maddow had Omar on her show to share her thoughts on Trump’s supposedly racist tweets.
Omar took the opportunity to encourage Trump-haters into believing they’re right to say Trump is a racist.
Maddow asked Omar specifically how she was trying to handle Trump’s “racist remarks.”
“Look, many of us, as I said today, when we are brown and black in this country have been subjected to the old racist trope of ‘go back to where you came from,'” the Minnesota lawmaker replied.
“Whether it happens at a school playground or inside the hallway or someone shouting at you in the street, many of us have had our responses.”
She continued, “And now today and yesterday we had to figure out how to respond to it coming from the President of the United States. We were reminded, something that my 7-year-old says,
‘Does he know he is the president of the United States?'”
It’s absurd to think President Trump A.) doesn’t know he’s President of the United States and B.) is a racist based on what he said.
Taken at face value, his comments (in which he didn’t name anyone directly) is quite Presidential and as far from racist as you could imagine.
He’s imploring these boisterous lawmakers who do nothing but complain to put their money where their mouth is.
They claim they have a lot to contribute – so either quit complaining and contribute or go back to the country you came from and claim to love more than the U.S. and fix your country’s problems first.
Then come back here and tell us what you learned and apply that to the U.S.
How in the world is that racist?
But Rachel Maddow crossed the line by trying to incite anger among Americans and continue a false narrative about Trump being a racist.
That woman can take the smallest story and blow it into epic proportions – especially when the target is Trump.
