This whole Women’s March has been an obscene joke from the beginning. It was comprised of nothing more than gullible women who are willing to let themselves be used as political weaponry. The march was anti-Semitic in nature and the founders used it to take hatred mainstream. Now, Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory have launched a petition on the Action Network website calling for social media platforms Facebook and Twitter to “permanently suspend” President Trump’s accounts because of a video the president posted about Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) flippant 9/11 comments to Twitter on Friday.
Trump’s video was absolutely appropriate. It is sheer censorship to put forth he should be banned on social media because he views Omar’s comments as slanderous towards the memory and occurrence of 9/11. By the way, to “permanently suspend” is the same as “banning.” It’s just a PC way of saying it.
The petition now has 28,952 signatures – their goal was 25,000.
The petition reads:
“To: Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey
From: [Your Name]
“Don’t give hate a platform. President Trump has demonstrated time and again that he will not hesitate to spread hate and incite violence from as many platforms he can.
“Don’t give him yours. Suspend him from Twitter and Facebook for inciting violence and engaging in hate speech. Remove his propaganda video targeting Congresswoman Omar.
“The president will not stop. He will continue to issue hateful messages from the White House. But you can stop him from issuing those messages on your platforms.
“Do the right thing. Suspend Trump from Twitter and Facebook.”

Calling someone out for their political views and their dissing of 9/11 is not inciting violence. And Trump was not hateful over it either. The Women’s March coupled the petition with a fundraising pitch in an email from co-founder Linda Sarsour, who claimed that Trump “is inciting violence against a Black Muslim sitting member of Congress, putting her life at risk.”
“Of course, Omar and her defenders are claiming that there’s a racist or Islamophobic aspect to Trump’s tweet. But for those of us that are old enough to clearly remember what happened on September 11, 2001, including Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), her dismissive comments about that day absolutely deserved the same level of mocking she and her ilk dish out to anyone that disagrees with them on a daily basis.
“What’s funny about this whole ordeal is the fact that the basis for Omar’s “some people did something” comment about 9/11 turned out to be completely false.
“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said initially during her speech at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) event last month.
“PolitiFact reported on Monday that Omar’s observation that “CAIR was founded after 9/11” is “false.”
“According to PolitiFact:
“CAIR stands for the Council on American-Islamic Relations. It was founded in 1994, according to its website, “to promote a positive image of Islam and Muslims in America.” It annually issues reports on the status of American Muslim civil rights; reports on its website date back to 1996.
“CAIR’s first report came in response to the 1995 attack on the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, after which some people initially blamed Muslims for the bombing. The actual bomber was a white native-born American, Timothy McVeigh.
“PolitiFact got a comment from Jeremy Slevin, a spokesman for Omar, and told the publication that “CAIR had doubled in size after the Sept. 11 attacks.
“It was a misstatement, and she now knows that it was founded earlier,” Slevin said.
“She now knows?” Why make the comment in the first place if you’re not sure what you’re saying is accurate? Maybe Omar is just going by what her buddy, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez once said about being accurate.
“There’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right,” Ocasio-Cortez said in January.
“Another day, another pointless example of “activism,” and yet another example of the far-left having absolutely no idea what they’re talking about or what they’re doing.”

This whole business of blaming President Trump over Omar making a disgusting comment over 9/11 where she refuses to call terrorists, terrorists is just beyond the pale. She has to refer to them as “some people,” even though they killed thousands of innocent people. Trump reminded Americans of what Omar said and what she stands for. He didn’t even have to say anything against her… she did that herself. And I don’t believe for a moment that she is getting death threats. Prove it.
The Democrats are backing these moves. It’s ironic since the hate-mongering is coming from the left, not Trump. What this does show is how little reverence these radical leftists have for constitutional rights. They have none at all as a matter of fact.
