    WTF? Why bring me into this?? Insulting and beneath you carrrnuttt. And it's completely different, in fact, it's the opposite of this.

    Just for the record I never said I particularly liked her of that I think she particularly likes Israel.

    I do think her comments were a positive sign and yes words matter

    Would you think the same if Trump started saying supportive words about Muslims?

    I may be wrong, but from what I have seen, her vitriol is aimed at Israel's government and not Jewish people.

    Why would you not? Sure, they would probably be lies, but you are comparing Omar to Trump. Not exactly a fair comparison.

    IF Trump did say supportive words about Muslims, who really cares what he really thinks? His lapdogs around the country would lap it up and that's where it would matter.

    Islamist vitriol is largely aimed at the US government policies but they act against US citizens.

    Having said that I tend to agree with you on this.

    It's not an insult. I was commenting on the utter vehemence either of you have when defending said respective religion, their worshipers, and/or their leadership.

    I too agree with LIAC, but I hope you're not implying that Ilhan is an Islamist...

    How is it not a fair comparison? Both have well-documented prejudiced statements towards others from a different religion, race, or skin color.

    And couldn't you say the same thing about extreme liberals? They're "lapping it up" with Omar without realizing that they're behaving just like MAGAts with Trump.

    This why I hate tribalism in politics on both sides of the aisle.

    C'mon man.

    You can't bitch about "tribalism" when you were the one siding against Palestinian children, versus the Israeli state, by somehow defending their treatment by implying that how Hamas thinks is how the rest of Palestine thinks.

    I mean, who's generalizing what group of people now?

    I tend to agree with you, but what I’ve told liberals recently is to not give MAGAts a reason to call you a hypocrite and to invalidate your message. That’s why I’m so critical of Omar; she literally is engaging in the same kind of behavior as Trump, except in her case, it’s towards Jews and not Muslims and Hispanics. Trump-humpers have literally used projection as their #1 retort towards liberals. Those of us who want Trump out of our lives need to set the example for why and how life post-Trump will be better because MAGAts aren’t going to go away the day Trump is removed from office.

    When did I side against Palestinian children? That seems like an extreme measure on your part to make a point, and you know it’s horse crap.

    And yes, Hamas has brainwashed the majority of Palestinians. You’re not going to find a reasonable person who thinks otherwise
