Back in 2017 in a column titled “No, the Left isn’t suffering from a pre-9-11 mentality,” I cited a December 2016 interview Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s interrogator James Mitchell did on Fox News’ “The Kelly File.”
I’ve cited this interview several times in the last couple of years. But given what Ilhan Omar recently said about the September 11 attack, I’m going to cite it again.
In fact, let’s start with the video of the interview:
Here are two salient quotes:
“[T]he easiest way to win the long battle to take over the world with sharia law was actually through immigration and by out-breeding non-Muslims. He [KSM] said that like-minded jihadi brothers would immigrate to western democracies and to the United States. They would wrap themselves in our civil liberties for protection. They would support themselves in our welfare systems while they spread their jihadi message. And then when the time was right, they would rise up and attack.”
”Here’s the way political correctness works for a guy like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. It allows them to operate in our midst without being challenged. It allows them to ratchet up the focus on sharia law without us pushing back on it. And we end up inadvertently imposing on ourselves the blasphemy laws of sharia, because we cut back on the things that they find offensive.” [Emphasis Dianny’s]
I want you to consider these two quotes with relation to the feigned outrage coming from Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and their useful idiot buddy Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
We are told “How dare you show video of Ilhan Omar speaking those words! It’s incitement! It puts her life in danger! She’s a victim!”
The goal is obvious — they want to force us to, as Mitchell put it, “cut back on the things that they find offensive.”
They want us afraid to point out the very hateful and cruel things Ilhan Omar says on a near-weekly basis.
That way, while she is free to spew her hateful rhetoric with wild abandon, we will be cowed into self-censoring our criticism of her.
In other words, “it allows” Ilhan Omar “to operate in our midst without being challenged.”
Ilhan Omar is a living embodiment of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s dream.
And thanks to the Left’s fear of offending her, they are tripping all over themselves to help make KSM’s dream a reality.
When the New York Post pushed back against Omar’s dismissive rhetoric about the 9/11 attack printing this cover page:
Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded exactly as KSM hoped they would.
The NY Post knows exactly what it’s doing – taking quotes out of context and evoking painful imagery to spread hate and endangering the life of Rep. Omar. Shame on them, and shame on Rupert Murdoch.— Rashida Tlaib (@RashidaTlaib) April 11, 2019
“Out of context.” Okay.
1) Nothing was taken out of context.— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) April 11, 2019
2) Criticizing dumb statements is not “endangering” anyone’s life.
AOC on NY Post/Ilhan Omar front page: “We are getting to the level where this is an incitement of violence against progressive women of color and if they can’t figure out how to get it back to policy, we need to call it out for what it is because this is not normal.” pic.twitter.com/Zxad5H4I8n— Jason Donner (@jason_donner) April 11, 2019
You see how it’s done?
New Yorkers who experienced the 9/11 attack first-hand must not be angry with Ilhan Omar’s dismissive remarks about it. Instead, they should be angry at the New York Post for putting Omar’s dismissive remarks in the context of the actual event she dismissed.
Because it is an “incitement of violence” against “women of color.”
This is utter word salad — not to mention nonsense (but, hey, it’s AOC so what do you expect?).
The Post’s cover is a reminder that Islamic terrorists killed nearly three thousand Americans in the single most deadly terror attack in our history. It is far more than “some people did something” as Omar dismissively said.
But you see, we are not allowed to call them out. Whereas they are allowed to call us out for simply calling attention to Omar’s despicable words.
In short, Ilhan can say whatever hateful thing that stomps through her head and nobody else is allowed to hold her to account because Ilhan is a Certified VictimTM.
She can call Stephen Miller a “white nationalist” in a day and age when violent Leftists feel completely free to do violence on anyone deemed as such. And that’s a-okay.
But you cannot post any video of Ilhan saying hateful things because it is “incitement.”
It’s as if Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is Ilhan Omar’s chief of staff.
Going back to my column “No, the Left isn’t suffering from a pre-9-11 mentality,” I wrote:
And in that respect, 9/11 accomplished far more for the terrorists than simply bringing down the Twin Towers and slaughtering three thousand Americans.
It’s had a ripple effect on our nation that we still feel today.
It unleashed a pandering rush of political correctness that sought to blame Islamophobia rather than the Islamists.
Americans on the Left responded to the 9/11 attack in exactly the way the terrorists hoped they would.
They bent over backwards to appease the Islamists in order to prove that they were tolerant and accepting.
The 9/11 attack was the inciting incident.
But the actual long-term damage from that attack is far more insidious.
And it was accomplished thanks to the “tolerant” appeasement of the American Left.
This is precisely what the terrorists hoped to exploit.
And they have exploited it, haven’t they?
Just look at the protective bubble surrounding Ilhan Omar. She sees herself as untouchable. And, more importantly, the useful idiots on the Left expect her to be untouchable — and that includes Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
The most diabolical thing about this incident with Omar is that she and her comrades demand that we memory-hole the horrific events of September 11, 2001 because to remember it or, heaven forbid, remind Americans of just how horrible it was is deemed “incitement” against poor victim Ilhan.
And that must make Khalid Sheikh Mohammed giggle with delight.
The only recourse is for us to refuse to cave to this attempt to get us to submit – not through violence, but through groveling self-censorship.
And we cannot submit – no matter how many cries of “racist” or “Islamophobe” get hurled our way.
We must fight back against this craven attempt to silence us.
No matter how often Ilhan Omar or her comrades claim Victimhood — no matter how many times they unleash their social media flying monkeys to threaten and attack — we must never submit.
