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.

UH OH!! When protected classes collide...
she will apologize, though none is necessary. The muzzie should be deported.
Anytime these muzzies protest you need to escalate it back
Let them just keep whining
Make fun of them for complaining, alinsky them
Imagine if Tucker Carlson has said something like this...he would be fired by sundown.
Off with her head!
It’s a bit like Hitler vs Stalin...you fervently wish that they both could lose.
I wonder if Joy could have asked Ilhan to distance herself from one of her biggest fans...

Goody!! Do we get to see an honor killing?
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.
I told ya all a long time ago that joy Reid was a total fraud. NO ONE can blog like she used to blog and all of a sudden the next day become a full blown communist..she is a scam artist, but hey supposedly her blog was hacked so there ya go, sarc
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.
Thats just the way the Muslims roll, dontcha know?
