    Yep. Maybe he'll vote for Trump if he apologizes for the "only in the Panhandle" comment.

    I have a Mexican-American friend who married then later divorced a Mexican citizen and he told her to go back where she came from.

    Katie Hill has an affair with a campaign staffer, used campaign funds to cover it up and was forced to resign.

    Ilhan Omar has an affair with a campaign staffer, used campaign funds to cover it up and is still in office. Oh and also married her brother.

    What happened to white Privilege?

    In a progressive society, all forms of racism should be equally treated in terms of condemnation. A society that is "woke" to the extent of revenge or divisive double-standards is not progressive. In other words, we are not post-racial as they indicated when Obama won in 2008. We are far from from it.

    Ilhan Omar didn't bang her legislative office staff. Legally and ethically, that is the big difference. Do I think she'd resign if she had? Hell no. She'd scream racism, Islamophobia, etc., and the House Ethics Committee would let it slide.

    Did Kamala Harris accuse the Democrat voters as being racist when she said ”people aren’t ready for a woman of color to be President? They also hate women?

    No Ilahn just used another family's name to enter the US , married her brother to get him into USA illegally, likely committed bigamy, cheated on her husband with someone on her staff and paid the dude taxpayer money.
    Damn western imperialism.

    You know brainwashing is real when White People protest against White People for being White People.

    SH, LH, OU Bubba, any of you white? If so, are you ashamed of yourself?

    Haven't you heard the news? All white people are racist. All of us. Even if you are a Mexican like George Zimmerman.

    Omar is being investigated by at least 3 different federal agencies for purported felonies from 2009 to 2017.
    “At least three departments are reviewing what could be the worst-ever crime spree by an elected US official
    (1) Department of Education Inspector General
    (2) Immigration and Customs Enforcement
    (3) FBI
    Finally. The Feds — including ICE — appear to be investigating Rep. Ilhan Omar.

    I hope the woman running against her can find support.
    Would other Somalies support anyone other than a Somali ?

    The problem isn't the Somalis. It's woke, liberal white people. I used to assume that district was a broke-*** poor, gerrymandered black district like most districts held by black members. It isn't. It is 63 percent white. It's median age is 33.7 - almost five years younger than the statewide average. Its per capita income is just slightly below average for the state, but the poverty rate is quite a bit higher. It is disproportionately single rather than married. Housing units are overwhelmingly multi-unit (lots of apartments). It has more college-educated citizens than the rest of the state and the country. It is more foreign born than most districts with a large percentage of those persons being from Africa, but we're still only talking about 5 percent of the district being from Africa (probably few of whom vote). Link.

    What does that tell you? It's not a bunch of black immigrants electing Ilhan Omar. It's a bunch of self-flagellating, single, woke, college-educated white liberals - our favorite kind of people.

    Those stats are depressing. Really depressing.
    I almost wish Mr D that you had not researched that.

    We're already living in an idiocracy. Once you accept that the pain and depression will subside somewhat. :)

    The district has been Democratic for decades, but they've just gone from bad to worse. For a long time, it was represented by Martin Sabo. He was basically your average liberal Democrat but like most politicians from that area, not particularly obnoxious or vitriolic. He was replaced by Keith Ellison, who was a big stepdown, but he at least faked not hating Jews. Now the wheels have completely come off, and they've elected a unapologetically hate-riddled freak. There is no pretense anymore.

    Higher income, higher education but higher poverty rate? What’s up with that?

    Like a lot of big city districts, it has a lot of poor people. That makes the poverty rate high. However, the people who are wealthy are very wealthy, so that inflates the per capita income.

    If they keep electing Democrats, this vast wealth gap will quickly even out, any day now....

    The latest Bureau of Justice Statistics 2018 survey of criminal victimization. Mac Donald writes: "According to the study, there were 593,598 interracial violent victimizations (excluding homicide) between blacks and whites last year, including white-on-black and black-on-white attacks. Blacks committed 537,204 of those interracial felonies, or 90 percent, and whites committed 56,394 of them, or less than 10 percent. That ratio is becoming more skewed, despite the Democratic claim of Trump-inspired white violence. In 2012-13, blacks committed 85 percent of all interracial victimizations between blacks and whites; whites committed 15 percent. From 2015 to 2018, the total number of white victims and the incidence of white victimization have grown as well.

    There are other stark figures not talked about often. According to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting for 2018, of the homicide victims for whom race was known, 53.3% were black, 43.8% were white and 2.8% were of other races. In cases where the race of the offender was known, 54.9% were black, 42.4% were white, and 2.7% were of other races.

    White and black liberals, who claim that blacks face a "mortal threat" from the "white supremacist in the White House" are perpetuating a cruel hoax.

    Can you imagine the media coverage if some white Republican congressman from Oklahoma had been caught marrying his sister so she could defraud the federal govt of some benefit?

    Of course, the explanation for this is that we "over-police" minority neighborhoods, which wildly skews the statistics. In reality, police tend to patrol areas where crimes are reported. So I guess thousands of white people every year are actually murdering each other but just choosing not to call the police

    Whitey must have been hanging in the hood to be victimized if that were true. Just think how much worse those statistics would look if police ever decide to return to policing black folks in Baltimore.
