ICYMI: Democrat Omar Slams Israel, Then Claims Jewish State Is NOT A Democracy

How does she get away with this?

Freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar has been known for making anti-Semitic remarks in the past.

She’s given a pass by the mainstream media due to her political affiliation.

In a recent interview, Omar goes as far as to suggest that Israel is not a democracy.

She also compares the Jewish state to Iran.

Iran!?

WATCH:

In 2016, Omar was elected to Congress. That year, nine Minnesota men were charged with plotting to join ISIS.

Omar, who has blasted Israel for a good long while and has been photographed with some questionable personalities, asked the judge to show “compassion.”

You read that correctly.

From Fox 9:

The 9 Minnesota men charged with planning to join ISIS are scheduled to be sentenced next week. Ahead of those court dates, 13 letters were sent to Judge Michael Davis in the case of defendant Abdirahman Yasin Daud, including a letter from state Rep. Ilhan Omar, who on Election Night became with first elected Somali-American lawmaker in the nation.

Rep. Omar asked Judge Davis for “compassion” and a “restorative approach to justice,” concluding that “this ruling can set a precedent and has the potential to be a landmark case in addressing extremism.”

In 2012, Ilhan Omar tweeted about the “evil doings of Israel.”

She may not have imagined she’d one day be elected to Congress, forced to answer for her words.

The original tweet:

Omar defended her tweet during an interview with PBS’ Christine Amanpour.

Far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) defended a past anti-Semitic remark she made on Twitter in an interview with PBS on Tuesday, saying those were “the only words I could think about expressing at that moment.”

Amanpour: “Can I just move on to something that’s generally a rite of passage for politicians in the United States, and that is to sort of profess a sort of fealty or at least pay homage to AIPAC, the pro-Israel PAC that is very, very prominent. Should Jewish Americans be worried about congresswoman Ilhan Omar or Rashida Tlaib because of the BDS movement, because of one of the tweets you made a long time ago, you were part of a new wave of Democrats not afraid to be critical of the government of Israel.

Amanpour, continued: “During the 2012 military offensive in Gaza, you tweeted, ‘Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel. How do you put that into context now and what do you say to American Jews?

Omar: “I remember when that was happening, watching tv and really feeling as if no other life was being impacted in this war and that really, those unfortunate words were the only words I could think about expressing at that moment. What is really important to me is that people recognize that there is a difference between criticizing a military action by a government that has exercised really oppressive policies and being offensive or attacky [sic] to particular people of faith.

Police Say Buffalo Supermarket Shooting was Racially Motivated

Local authorities described the crime as “pure evil”.

Published

on

On Saturday, a young gunman walked into a quiet grocery store in Buffalo, New York and opened fire.

The scene was described as chaotic and “armageddon-like”, as the killer stalked through the store expressionless, cold, and live-streaming the whole thing to the internet.  When the horror ended, ten were dead, several others injured, and the city of Buffalo was left scarred.

Now, in a deplorable revelation, police are disclosing that the crime was racially motivated.

An 18-year-old white gunman shot 10 people to death and wounded three on Saturday at a grocery store in a Black neighborhood of upstate New York, before surrendering after what authorities called an act of “racially motivated violent extremism.”

Authorities said the suspect, who was armed with an assault-style rifle and appeared to have acted alone, drove to Buffalo from his home several hours away to launch the afternoon attack that he broadcast in real time on social media platform Twitch, a live video service owned by Amazon.com.

Eleven of the 13 people struck by gunfire were Black, officials said. The two others were white. The racial breakdown of the dead was not made clear.

Hateful online content has been attributed to the killer.

A document circulating online that appeared to have been written by the killer sketched out a to-do list for the attack, including cleaning the gun and testing the livestream.

In addition, a 180-page manifesto outlining ‘The Great Replacement Theory’ – the idea that white people are being replaced by minorities in the United States and other countries – also circulated online, reportedly authored by Gendron.

The suspect has suggested that he chose this particular grocery store on account of the high minority demographics within the ZIP code, further corroborating his hateful basis.

Wearable Google Device Could Translate Language in Real Time

WHOA!

Published

on

While there are certainly plenty of reasons to worry about the never-ending march into the technological dystopia before us, we have to admit that some of what were seeing is still pretty darn cool.

For many of us, it’s as though we’re living in an episode of The Jetsons.  Self-driving cars, video phone calls, apps that can tell you what song you’re listening to in the blink of an eye.  These are all revolutionary pieces of technology that we have gained for ourselves in merely the last decade or so.

This week, however, Google may have just taken the cake on powerful consumer electronics, teasing a pair of glasses that can translate languages nearly in real-time.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai on Wednesday teased a pair of smart glasses capable of translating languages in real time.

Pichai showed a video demo of the glasses during Google’s I/O developer summit. While they’re still just a prototype, Google suggested the glasses can show live language translations to the person wearing them.

So, someone with the augmented reality glasses might be able to understand what another person is saying just by reading captions that are presented through the lenses while the other person speaks.

There was no indication as to whether or not the glasses would ever be available to the public, however.
