Ilhan Omar’s career has been marked by scandal from day one.
Each one is worse than the last.
And Ilhan Omar does not want anyone to see this explosive video.
As Black Eye Politics reports:
Ilhan Omar found herself in the middle of another scandal.
This time Omar could find herself in court.
And one racist video actually revealed something terrible about Ilhan Omar.
Ilhan Omar was one of the many on the left outraged that a fair and impartial jury considered all the evidence and correctly acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse of murdering two Black Lives Matter rioters last August.
But Omar entered shaky territory sharing a video from Peacock TV host Amber Ruffin where Ruffin repeated numerous falsehoods about the Rittenhouse case and made several ugly racist remarks about white people.
In the video Omar shared to social media, Ruffin ranted:
It’s not okay for a man to grab a rifle, travel across state lines, and shoot three people and then walk free. It’s not okay for the judicial system to be blatantly and obviously stacked against people of color. It’s not okay for there to be an entirely different set of rules for white people. But I don’t care about Kyle Rittenhouse. I don’t care about that racist judge. And I don’t care about how f—ed up that jury must be. White people have been getting away with murder since time began.
Many of these lies Ruffin told were debunked during the trial and Rittenhouse corrected the false claims in an interview with Tucker Carlson where Rittenhouse said he was not a white supremacist, and he did not travel across state lines with a firearm.
“It’s actually quite hysterical how nobody can go back and look at the facts of the case. He crossed state lines, false. He’s a white supremacist, false. None of that is true. And the lies that they can just get away with spreading, it’s just sickening and it’s a disgrace to this country,” Rittenhouse told Carlson.
Ilhan Omar, other Democrats, and their allies in the corporate media regularly slam social media companies for allowing the spread of so-called “misinformation” online.
But the ease with which Omar, elected Democrats and the corporate media spread lies about Kyle Rittenhouse proved again that what the left deems “misinformation” is really just viewpoints and ideas that run counter to the Democrat Party’s official line on any given issue.
Omar and other liberals want the corporate media to own a monopoly on spreading misinformation because it helps them politically.
The jury likely only acquitted Rittenhouse because so much of the chaos of the Black Lives Matter riot in Kenosha was caught on video.
If Americans only had to rely on the corporate media for information about the Rittenhouse case it would have been nearly impossible to find a jury that would have acquitted Rittenhouse.
Omar also shared this video knowing full well that Rittenhouse threatened to sue Joe Biden and others that lied about him after the events of last August and during the trial.
Ruffin and Omar had to know the facts of the case by this point and Omar amplifying Ruffin’s lies could lead to a lawsuit.
