Tennis Icon Martina Navratilova Calls Out Ilhan Omar For Making Another Anti-Semitic Remark...

When CNBC announced that the successful Jewish hedge fund manager would be supporting fellow Jewish billionaire Mike Bloomberg in his run for President as a Democrat, Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (MN), who has a history of making anti-Semitic remarks on Twitter, responded to their tweet, saying, “I wonder why?”

Women’s tennis icon and gay rights activist Martina Navratilova immediately admonished Omar for making yet another anti-Semitic statement on Twitter. Navratilova tweeted, “This is a wrong thing to say Congresswoman…”

Omar’s liberal friends attacked Navratilova, who is a liberal to the core. Navratilova’s profile picture on Twitter is an image of Trump’s MAGA (Make America Great Again) hat with the word “Greta” replacing the word “Great,” as a nod to teenage climate cult leader, Greta Thunberg.

This is a wrong thing to say Congresswoman…

Navratilova responded to Omar supporters who defended her anti-Semitic tweet, by saying, “Generalizing is wrong no matter which “group” of people one talks about. It’s about assigning labels and I hate that.”

Navratilova clarified her criticism of the anti-Semitic lawmaker, saying, “I am speaking about the fact that I don’t like lumping people together, regardless of who is doing the lumping. Has nothing to do with gender, religion, party etc. I abhor any kind of prejudice…”

When Omar was admonished by members of Congress (including members of her own party), for her repeated anti-Semitic remarks, the arrogant Democrat lawmaker refused to back down.

In April, United States Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) sat down for an interview with KARE 11’s Jana Shortal. During their discussion, Shortal asked Omar about her anti-Semitic remarks, as well as her flippant “some people did something” remark in reference to the Islamic terror attacks that took place in American on 9-11, during a recent CAIR event in Los Angeles.

Shortal asked Omar, “Let’s go back in time. On February 10 you responded to a tweet with the words, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby.” Do you regret that tweet? ”

Omar responded, “Regret is a strange word.” Omar laughed.

This isn’t the first time the liberal, gay rights activist took a public position in opposition to her friends on the left. In February, Navratilova was slammed by the left for claiming it’s a form of “cheating” for transgender women to be allowed to compete in women’s sport.

KTLA reported about the 18-time Grand Slam winner, who in The Sunday Times said that it was “insane” that “hundreds of athletes who have changed gender by declaration and limited hormone treatment have already achieved honors as women that were beyond their capabilities as men.”

In December she was criticized after tweeting: “You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women. There must be some standards, and having a penis and competing as a woman would not fit that standard.”

If the generalizations are accurate but unpleasant or some take them to have negative connotations, they are still accurate.

This is the fundamental problem. Generalizations are not inherently bad. Those made from deliberately bad info and false biases are the ones that need to be fought against. The ones that are based on truth and facts are fine.

There are reasons why generalizations come about and if they are based in truth, it serves a good purpose.

Nevertheless, assuming that Jews support Jews, just because they’re Jews, crosses the line, innit?

I think Martina is simply ‘uncomfortable’ with members of the Islamic faith. I mean why else would she complain about her?

Liberal, left, conservative, right... these terms have evolved. The left is not liberal (or Liberal), the right and conservatives more liberal and Liberal in many ways.

Explain how that crosses the line?

The generalization that blacks support blacks because they are blacks, is an overall truthful statement. We hear it expressed in many different ways. Same thing with women supporting women simply because they are women, that’s what we hear from women expressed a bunch of different ways. “if there are two candidates i dont know and ones a woman, i vote for her because shes a woman.” “#metoo”

How about the accurate generalization that on the whole, blacks are known to be bad restaurant tippers. Countless waitstaff stories from across the country by people at all different kinds and levels of food places report this. At the same time no other racial demographic has ever got the same amount of feedback. Is it a nationwide conspiracy by thousands of waiters and waitresses or is it an accurate generalization.

The fact is generalizations are just that, they don’t dictate 100 yes or no, and you,know that. Its saying something is generally more true, more likely to be, than not.

If people are not interested in accurate generalizations or are happy to promote false generalizations for other agendas, thats a problem. But just offering up one and trying to say no one should use them in their decision making processes is ignoring experiential and other folks accounts, and expecting a different result.
