Ilhan Omar calls on MSNBC's Joy Reid to apologize over comments labeled Islamophobic
The Hill ^ | 09 01 2020 | John Bowden

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) called on MSNBC anchor Joy Reid to apologize Tuesday over remarks the night before that compared the actions of President Trump and his allies to "the way Muslims act" when "radicalizing" supporters.

"Honestly, this kinda of casual Islamophobia is hurtful and dangerous," Omar, one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, tweeted Tuesday. "We deserve better and an apology for the painful moment for so many Muslims around our country should be forthcoming."

"Leaders, let's say in the Muslim world, talk a lot of violent talk and encourage their supporters to commit violence. ... We in the U.S. media describe that as radicalizing people," Reid said during the segment. "That's the way we talk about how Muslims act."

"When you see what Donald Trump is doing, is that any different from what we describe as radicalizing people?" she asked.

A spokesperson for MSNBC did not immediately return a request for comment from The Hill on Omar's call for an apology.

Anytime these muzzies protest you need to escalate it back

Let them just keep whining

Never apologize

Make fun of them for complaining, alinsky them

I wonder if Joy could have asked Ilhan to distance herself from one of her biggest fans...

When I read the headline I thought I had run into the unprecedented event where I’d end up agreeing with Omar or Reid. Nope, after reading the first paragraph - they both suck.

She’s a black, liberal, female on MSNBC. Her job is secure.

It’s the President she should apologize to.

Hey, Omar! How does it feel to take second string to a goat, a sheep or a little boy? Do you really believe that garbage that was written by a Godless Heathen, pedophile? Not that I really care what you may say or feel. My dogs are smarter than you are and they are cleaners and smell better than you do. Have I offended you? Do I really care? Go back to Somalia. Maybe some nice man will take you for a helicopter ride.

PS: There is no such thing as being “Islamophobic”. There is just disgust and disdain for Islam and those who are stupid enough to buy into that crap.

Quick Ms. Reid, apologize! Because otherwise the Islamists just might slit your throat, or throw you off the roof of a building.

That’s just the way the Muslims roll, dontcha know?
