After recounting his remarks the night before, Carlson declared it wasn't about race and accused Omar of using race to get what she wants.
In Omar's version, America wasn't the bighearted country that saved her from a brutal war and a bleak refugee camp.
Omar, who emigrated from Somalia to the U.S.as a child, laughed at Carlson's screed.
The representative from Minnesota told hundreds of students at Richfield High School last week in her home state that she witnessed an elderly black woman get detained for a weekend for stealing $2 bread for her 'starving 5-year-old granddaughter'. They can never criticize the immigration process or the systems created to keep them in poverty.
Ms Omar continued: "No lies will stamp out my love for this country or my resolve to make our union more ideal".
Carlson was apparently referencing a recent Washington Post profile that quoted Omar as telling high school students, "I grew up in an extremely unjust society, and the only thing that made my family excited about coming to the United States was that the United States was supposed to be the country that guaranteed justice to all". Now, at 37, she serves in the House of Representatives as one of the first Muslim women elected to congress.
Carlson had called the Somali-American congresswoman proof immigration laws are "dangerous". "That should worry you, and not just because Omar is now a sitting member of Congress".
Just like for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it seems it was more important to her to be morally right than factually correct.Читайте также: Officials investigating possible first fatality from Ridgecrest natural disaster
CNN's "New Day" anchor John Berman said the comment was "flat out racist", and contributor Errol Louis compared it to "racist garbage" he's heard on talk radio.
Carlson then went to host conservative filmmaker Brooke Goldstein, who unabashedly equated Omar's controversial comments about Israel, some of which she has apologized for, to the vicious anti-Semitism advocated by neo-Nazis. Carlson's latest tirade, Lawrence tweeted, "is probably the most racist shit this guy has said on his show and he's said a lot of racist shit".
Carlson later blamed the American left for indoctrinating Omar and teaching her the "hustle" of "crying racism". "I truly believe he is a racist fool who is weeping about the fact that we have an African-born member of Congress, the kind of people that the likes of him think come from s-thole countries".
He also says that maybe the problem is that we're "importing people from places whose values are simply antithetical to ours".
"It's unsafe", Omar tweeted. Who knows what the problem is, but there is a problem and whatever the cause, this can not continue.
"No country can import large numbers of people who hate it and expect to survive", he warned. She's a living fire alarm.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
