If accurately quoting Ilhan Omar when she whitewashes the 9/11 terrorists is “dangerous incitement,” we’d really, really like to know what this is:
Prayers and condolences won’t keep our kids safe, sensible #GunLaws will. It’s time for you and Republicans to put the safety of Americans first and seek freedom from the NRA. They are the true enemy! https://t.co/fp0kZH8X0w

The NRA is “the true enemy”? Rhetoric doesn’t get much more incendiary than that.
This is incitement

This is inciting violence against Republicans.

According to the precedence set by you and AOC, this is inflammatory language and may incite violence.
It has been reported as such.

Omar is literally trying to get people to kill NRA members. Meaning me. pic.twitter.com/EYsUTy0xLl

Unlike the legitimate criticism Ilhan Omar has faced for her long history of anti-Semitism and bigotry and for her recent 9/11 remarks, the NRA hasn’t done anything to merit being smeared as “the true enemy.” Will Omar’s army of kneejerk defenders call her out for this or nah? That’s a rhetorical question, of course. She’s a lefty, so she gets a pass for whatever garbage she spews, no matter how inflammatory it is.
Wish you hated al-Qaeda this much.
