Conservatives know that the liberal media fiercely protects their favorite Democrats.
There’s a concerted effort by all the networks, publications, and even late-night comedy shows to rally around their sacred cows.
But one rising Democrat who’s a media darling could already be on the way out.
Donald Trump recently made a move that has dominated the so-called mainstream media headlines for days.
He rightly pointed out the anti-American streak that runs within the four freshmen congresswomen known as The Squad.
Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley have all made disgusting comments against the country, even likening federal law enforcement to Nazi concentration camp guards.
But Trump’s criticisms of Omar are particularly poignant.
Omar is a Muslim Somali refugee that has made countless anti-American and anti-Semitic remarks in a short amount of time.
She referred to the 9/11 attacks as “some people did something,” compared the U.S. military with the terrorist group Al-Qaeda, and ripped the American Black Hawk Down special forces soldiers that were sent in on a humanitarian mission.
Omar also requested leniency for members of her district in Minnesota who attempted to join ISIS; Omar’s district has an inordinately high amount of recruits to ISIS.
Despite all of her blatant American hatred and full-scale embrace of socialism and other far-left policies, the media have gone to bat for her.
Late-night comic Seth Meyers even had Omar on for a softball interview.
He subsequently grilled Meghan McCain, one of the two conservative voices on the far-left viper pit “The View,” for her justified critique of Omar’s comments.
However, the dam may be starting to break for Omar and the Democrats.
A recent petition was uploaded to WhiteHouse.gov for an investigation into Omar’s strident anti-American remarks, as well as her potential violations of immigration law and tax law.
Omar allegedly married her brother so he could get citizenship to the United States.
They also filed taxes jointly as a couple.
These are obvious crimes, but the so-called intrepid mainstream journalists have been mysteriously incurious.
Only one mainstream liberal outlet, the Minnesota Star Tribune, has looked into the potentially illicit behavior at all.
But now Trump is bringing the issue to the forefront.
And the more people know about Omar and the rest of The Squad, the less they like them.
A secret internal poll of swing-state Democrats showed that the four women, and Omar particularly, are wildly unpopular.
Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of respondents, but only 22% viewed her favorably.
The numbers were even worse for Omar.
She was recognized by 53% of respondents, and only a paltry 9% had a favorable view.
Trump has rightfully cast the Democrat Party as the party of wild-eyed socialists and America haters.
Omar and her cohorts appear to be grabbing that mantle with both hands.
And that lurch to the far-left could damage Omar and other Democrats in 2020.
The more eyeballs are on Omar, the more people will realize she does not have America’s best interest at heart.
