Minnesota Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar took to spewing lies and false hoods again in a resurfaced video that went viral this week when she claimed that Americans should live in abject fear of white men, alleging that white men commit the majority of violence in the United States.

None of which is true - but of course, the truth has never stopped this squad banshee from pushing her narrative.

In an interview with Al Jazeera, of all places, Omar claimed, “Our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country.”

Which is a blatantly racist statement, and would be treated as such if it had been made about any other group. But given that she’s bashing white men? This, the left deems acceptable.

But shameless bigotry aside, Omar’s statement is also pointedly untrue. Well it’s not immediately clear what she means by “deaths, “we can assume by her suggestion that people should live in fear of white men that she means things like murder, and negligent manslaughter rather than, say, someone accidentally dropping a flower pot on someone else’s head. So let’s talk about murders.

In 2018, FBI data shows that in murder cases in which the race of the perpetrator is known, 54.9 percent were committed by Black or African American offenders, despite Blacks only making up about 13% of the population. Conversely, Whites, who make up about 60% of the population, were responsible for 42.4 percent of murders. 

So if you’re judging solely by statistics, it’s pretty clear what subgroup is cause for the most concern - and it’s not Ilhan Omar‘s favorite bogeyman.

Of course, saying it out loud will only get you banned.
