Ilhan Omar calls Tucker Carlson a 'racist fool' after his straight-up Nazi rant about her.

Who needs klan rallies when there's Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News?

The evil Brooks Brothers mannequin did a segment on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar after a recent Washington Post profile told her life story. In the WaPo piece, Omar told a group of 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. So, I feel it necessary for me to speak about that promise that's not kept."

Tucker's takeaway is that Omar's disappointment in America not living up to its ideals is tantamount to treason, a lesson that Muslim immigrants and people of color are a threat to America at large.




"Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country," he said, telling his viewers that criticism of American justice is dangerous when it comes from a woman in a hijab. Donald Trump's whole campaign was calling America a broken trash country that needs to be "great again," but Tucker and friends called him a savior, not a danger.

Tucker proceeded to argue that immigrants like Omar come from cultures that are so "different" that they will never have what it takes to be "American."

That's just straight up Nazi trash, who used the folklore of the "German volk" as a reason to annihilate anybody who was insufficiently Aryan.

"Maybe we're importing people from places whose values are simply antithetical to ours," he said. "This can not continue. It's not sustainable. No country can import large numbers of people who hate it and survive. The Romans were the last to try that, with predictable results."

Omar, for her part, laughed the attack off, calling the racist fool a "racist fool."



Omar's colleagues in Congress are also condemning this trash.



If there's any doubt who the president sides with in this terrifying, boring "feud," he took the opportunity to retweet an article bashing CNN and calling Omar an anti-Semite.


Hey, hi! Jewess here.

Tucker Carlson implying that you can't love something if you criticize it is more anti-Semitic than anything Ilhan Omar has ever said.

We criticize because we love. Just ask my mother.

My husband and I had just finished watching "The Office" for the third time through and were looking for a new show to watch before bed. I'd seen a couple of friends highly recommend "Schitt's Creek," so we decided to give it a try.

My initial reaction to the first episode was meh. The characters were annoying and the premise was weird (pretentious and previously-filthy-rich family lives in a scuzzy motel in the middle of nowhere??). I felt nothing for the main characters, and I hate shows with horrible main characters that I can't root for. Even predicting that they were going to eventually be transformed by their small town experiences, I didn't see liking them. It didn't grab either of us as worth continuing, so we stopped.

But then I kept hearing people whose taste I trust implicitly talk about how great it was. I know different people have different tastes, but I realized I had to be missing something if these friends of mine raved on and on about it. So we gave it another shot.

It took a bit—I don't know how many episodes exactly, but a bit—to start liking it. Then a bit longer to start really liking it, and then at some point, it became a full-fledged, gushy, where-have-you-been-all-my-life love affair.

So when the show took home nine Emmy awards over the weekend—breaking the record for the most wins in a season for a comedy—I wasn't surprised. Here's why:

The legality of abortion is one of the most polarized debates in America—but it doesn’t have to be.

People have big feelings about abortion, which is understandable. On one hand, you have people who feel that abortion is a fundamental women’s rights issue, that our bodily autonomy is not something you can legislate, and that those who oppose abortion rights are trying to control women through oppressive legislation. On the other, you have folks who believe that a fetus is a human individual first and foremost, that no one has the right to terminate a human life, and that those who support abortion rights are heartless murderers.

Then there are those of us in the messy middle. Those who believe that life begins at conception, that abortion isn’t something we’d choose—and we’d hope others wouldn’t choose—under most circumstances, yet who choose to vote to keep abortion legal.

Biases, stereotypes, prejudices—these byproducts of the human brain's natural tendency to generalize and categorize have been a root cause of most of humanity's problems for, well, pretty much ever. None of us is immune to those tendencies, and since they can easily slip in unnoticed, we all have to be aware of where, when, and how they impact our own beliefs and actions.

It also helps when someone upends a stereotype by saying or doing something unexpected.

Fair or not, certain parts of the U.S. are associated with certain cultural assumptions, perhaps none more pinholed than the rural south. When we hear Appalachia, a certain stereotype probably pops up in our minds—probably white, probably not well educated, probably racist. Even if there is some basis to a stereotype, we must always remember that human beings can never be painted with such broad strokes.

Enter Tyler Childers, a rising country music star whose old-school country fiddling has endeared him to a broad audience, but his new album may have a different kind of reach. "Long Violent History" was released Friday, along with a video message to his white rural fans explaining the culminating track by the same name. Watch it here:
