TRUTH is now “hate speech” on Twitter as truthful statements about history result in being banned
One of the most offensive things to many Americans is to suffer criticism from immigrants who came to our country to escape vile, deplorable, violent, and corrupt conditions in their own countries. It seems something far more than mere hypocrisy to complain about your new home when your real home is, by comparison, so loathsome you couldn’t remain there. But immigrants who become Democrats seem to do it all the time, and some of them are now even becoming members of our government. One of the newest is Rep. Ilhan Omar, a freshman Democrat from Minnesota. Originally from Somalia, she tweeted out a “call to action” late last month that was, frankly, infuriating: Today is the anniversary of the massacre at Wounded Knee. Before we can achieve the future we dream of, we have to be honest about the history of this nation. These Lakota riders honor the 300 men, women and children killed there that day by US troops.
The tweet so offended conservative filmmaker and activist Andrew Marcus at “Red-Pilled Jew” that he had to reply to her, according to The Gateway Pundit: @IlhanMN @BenjaminNorton Native Americans were slave holders. They owned black people! They also conquered and occupied land. Also, Muslims sold the slaves to the colonies. Muslims still practice slavery TODAY. but please, do go on. All of that is true. Native Americans did indeed hold slaves, some of whom were of African descent. Of course, they fought wars among themselves and took/occupied land and resources from ‘enemy’ tribes. The Arab slave trade was most active in North Africa, Southeast Africa, and West Asia, and it survived into the 21st century (it was ended in Muslim countries in the 19th and 20th centuries by White European nations, by the way). And in 2017, CNN, of all networks, did a report detailing how the black slave trade is ongoing in modern-day Libya.

Divisive comments are ignorant of U.S. history
All of what Marcus tweeted was true, but of course, because he directed his comments at a black, liberal, Democrat female congresswoman-to-be, he was punished for it by Twitter’s speech Nazis, The Gateway Pundit noted. Now, even truth is suppressed on Twitter if it is deemed offensive and troublesome for Left-wing Democrats. As for Omar, she has some gall to highlight the massacre at Wounded Knee. Whatever it was — right, wrong, or somewhere in between — it is unnecessarily divisive to call attention to it, especially now that she’s a member of Congress. And it happened nearly 140 years ago. In addition to being ignorant of history, her tweet suggests that somehow the United States and the American people have made zero progress since those days of “oppression.” The tweet makes it seem like the Jim Crow laws are still on the books, and the civil rights movement in the 1960s never happened. What rights have the Lakota tribe members been denied? What “future” are they and other American minorities dreaming about that they have been prohibited from achieving? What opportunities have they been denied? If we’re being “honest” about the history of America, where are Omar’s tweets recognizing the tens of millions of people U.S. troops saved from the clutches of tyranny during World Wars I & II? What about the nuclear holocaust American forces prevented by remaining vigilant and on point throughout the Cold War? How many Americans — including ungrateful immigrants like Omar — have American troops saved from being murdered by extremist members of her faith. Hey, just being honest here. There may be some legitimate areas of concern that we face but that’s no different from any other country. We’re all a work in progress. But to insinuate in an inane, divisive tweet that nothing’s changed in our country in more than a century is not just factually incorrect, it’s offensive and disgusting. She should apologize, and so should Twitter for its ridiculous treatment of Marcus. Read more about the divisiveness of the Alt-Left at AltLeft.news.
