Nothing offends Ilhan Omar more than Jews, but occasionally, she has to pretend to be offended by other things, just to keep the act going.
Yesterday, when she saw this:
This is El Paso right now, where hundreds of migrant families are being held in the parking lot of a Border Patrol station because there is no room for them inside, or anywhere else. pic.twitter.com/lFGZ9zRcZk

She knew immediately who she could blame for it:
This is abhorrent and inhumane.
It's without a doubt a reflection of what white nationalism is doing to our country. As a country, we have to acknowledge that this is how people are being treated here and decide that we are better and we must do better. https://t.co/5YNAJFNZo7

We’re not sure what white nationalism has to do with it. Neither is Rep. Dan Crenshaw:
How about more detention facilities and an end to asylum processing policies that encourage migrants to leverage children to cross the border?
Or just make up nonsense about “white nationalism”. Seems like totally coherent policy. https://t.co/tKSCDjjqhL

To answer Crenshaw’s question, it’s pretty clear that Omar’s not actually interested in fixing the border situation. Not when she can use it to try to score cheap political points without having to actually propose any sensible or workable solutions. It’s definitely easier for her to blame “white nationalism” for everything.
That sounds too reasonable, Dan

Dan you need to stop making common sense arguments. It's confusing your colleagues across the aisle

And honestly, we can’t help but wonder why she hates white nationalism so much … white nationalists really seem to love her.
Just popping back in to share this man’s response to Ilhan Omar, because it’s worth highlighting:
It's abhorrent and despicable that you see white nationalism in an emergency at the border, and your solution seems to be rampant lawlessness. What is your solution? If you have one, state it. Stop spewing hate at the country that has shown you nothing but kindness. https://t.co/2du2NyG6jX
