People truly don’t understand the scale, intensity, & volume of threats targeting @IlhanMN. Kevin McCarthy is so desperate to be speaker that he is working with his Ku Klux Klan caucus to look aside & allow violent targeting of woc members of Congress. This cannot be ignored.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) plays a horrific death threat she received following Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-CO) recent Islamophobic attacks on her. Warning: It's incredibly graphic.

While people toss out clichés like “we condemn all forms of racism & bigotry,” the fact is Islamophobia is far too often tolerated and ignored. Bigotry is not made unacceptable by what one says about it, it’s made acceptable based on whether there are consequences for it or not.

It’s not just about nasty phone calls and e-mails. GOP are given freedom to incite without consequence. They don’t have to pay for the security required from their acts- we do. They make money off it. &They are targeting those least likely to be institutionally protected first.

Amen. Anyone who does it needs to be sanctioned and censured….on any side.

Well pretty much, only one "side" is doing it.

I volunteer to work security for Omar or any squad member … for free. No joke.

Rep. Cortez, you just did exactly what you accuse Republicans of doing. Let's be clear, what was said to Representative Omar was terrible and the person who did it should be punished. And here you are once again calling people you disagree with things like Klansman. Not incitive?

Did I miss your comments on the attack of the Jewish children in the city yesterday? Oh no political points to be gained so I guess that hate can be brushed under the rug

I respect what you are saying… but referring them as the “KKK Caucus” doesn’t help in condemning their rhetoric. It’s really isn’t any different than the phrase “Jihad Squad”.

Except one is being used in response to white supremacy and one is being used by white supremacists as an islamophobic slur
