Comparing Ilian Omar to MLK is perhaps the greatest insult to MLK's memory in modern times. It's about as offensive as the "Squad" comparing Israel to the Nazis.
It was Rashida Tlaib ( not Omar) who said “ we’re gonna go in there and impeach the MF” during a rally of her supporters following her election ( not on the floor of Congress).

Free speech for them, but not for HIM, right? You're a hypocrite.
Another right-winger who has no clue what free speech means. Let me educate you. Free speech means that the government will not arrest you nor stop you from saying anything critical of said government. I doesn't protect you from saying something stupid and being ridiculed or called out. If you wore Trump shirts and hates and held banners at work, free speech will not protect your stupid butt from being fired. The President is supposed to be elegant and above such nastiness towards other Americans. He is supposed to try to unite Americans not tear them apart just because they don't agree with him.

It is difficult to keep up sometimes.

I don't see a movement of "conservatives" against them.....must be missing something?
More like those anarchists/libertarians are missing something... Melanin.

I kid! I kid!

Kinda.

They told the Caucasian hippies to love it or leave it during the social unrest of the late 60s.

Come to think of it they tell liberals of all colors to move to Canada or Denmark if they think their healthcare systems are so great.

How long will people watch and do nothing as the democrat party of bigots marches on ?!?!?!

Nice try but no cigar. The 4 citizens of the USA, congresswomen of color and differing ethnicities are four voices out of an entire party. Their voices are 4 of many. The tent of the Democrats is big and inclusive and diverse and tolerant of ideas and opinions. Trump has been trying out a variety of enemies from this broad spectrum of people's voices. He's getting uglier and uglier out of desperation.

The Democrats are rallying around the Bill of Rights, not any one voice within their party.

Donald Trump chose these congresswomen to show his base that he hates the Bill of Rights. The President of the United States specifically CHOSE them to be the target of his misogynistic, xenophobic and racist campaign and ugly strategy. He chose these 4 freshmen voices out of the entire House of Reps and the Democratic Party to stir his base. Why? Because he needs to provide an enemy for his followers. He needs to keep his supporters afraid and tell them who is to blame for their fears.

These congresswomen, whom you continue to slur and demean with your name calling, are doing their jobs. They are elected to spark discourse and dialogue regarding the policies of our government and to provide differing and opposing views to Congress and America from their individual neighborhoods in New York, Minnesota, Massachusetts and Michigan.

Trump is trying to convince America of a very wrong and dangerous concept. He wants us to believe that disagreement with HIM, opposing the TRUMP administration's policies and a lack of admiration for HIM is the same as disrespect for the United States of America. Actually it is the opposite.

The right to disagree with the government, even in strong terms, is one of the most cherished of American values. By doing this, Trump is violating one of our nation's founding principles.

Democrats are rallying around all Americans when they condemn Donald Trump for stomping on The Bill of Rights! They are rallying around all Americans when they defend against the silencing of any voice of any citizen.

Mind you, "love it or leave it" is not the same thing as "go back to your sh****le country."

Nope Omar does not want that. This is a lie fabricated to condone Trump's hate for The Bill of Rights!
