Earlier this month, Rep. Ilhan Omar said she is among those “spreading a radical vision of love and unity”:
No one has the privilege of inaction.
No one has the privilege of saying this is not their battle.
When we don’t actively fighting against regressive ideologies, we’re contribute to their growth.
We must be courageous, for we are spreading a radical vision of love and unity.

As part of that “love and unity” push, the Rep from Minnesota, during a chat with the Washington Post, said this:

What a shocker.

Wow. @IlhanMN just referred to Trump rallies as “Klan Rallies”
This is what Ilhan Omar thinks of the 73 million people that Voted for President Trump.
Please tell me more about how Democrats want to “Heal” this country.

The healing has begun!

It’s palpable. Or maybe not.
Let's "heal" the country this way.

This progressive version of “unity” doesn’t sound very unifying. And it’s not the first time Omar’s called Trump campaign events “Klan rallies”:
Safe: Trump inciting white supremacist violence, denying climate change & hosting super-spreader clan rallies.
Dangerous: a Muslim woman advocating for universal healthcare and the Green New Deal.
Progress is what they fear the most.https://t.co/M1AcvlbDoE

Thank you sis, we are resilient!
It was painful to wake up every morning with a text from my siblings asking if I was safe the last two months after his clan rallies.
MN and you’ll had my back and we persisted.
Onward to less worrying text, panic and “send her back” chants. https://t.co/Tk8iJELMwm
