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

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 recentWashington Postprofile 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.

It's hard to truly describe the amazing bond between dads and their daughters.

Being a dad is an amazing job no matter the gender of the tiny humans we're raising. But there's something unique about the bond between fathers and daughters.

Most dads know what it's like to struggle with braiding hair, but we also know that bonding time provides immense value to our daughters. In fact, studies have shown that women with actively involved fathers are more confident and more successful in school and business.

The question: "How do you cook while blind?"

Brendan Fraser dressed as Rick O'Connell.

Brendan Fraser might be making the greatest career comeback ever, racking up accolades and award nominations for his dramatic, transformative role in “The Whale." But the OG Fraser fans (the ones who watch “Doom Patrol” solely to hear his voice and proudly pronounce his last name as Fray-zure, for this is the proper pronunciation) have known of his remarkable talent since the 90s, when he embodied the ultimate charming, dashing—and slightly goofball—Hollywood action lead.

Let us not forget his arguably most well known and beloved 90s character—Rick O’Connell from the “Mummy” franchise. Between his quippy one-liners, Indiana Jones-like adventuring skills and fabulous hair, what’s not to like?

During a double feature of “The Mummy” and “The Mummy Returns” in London, moviegoers got the ultimate surprise when who should walk in but Brendan Fraser himself, completely decked out in Rick O’Connell attire. The brown leather jacket. The scarf. Everything.

Gordon Ramsay at play... work.

Gordon Ramsay is not exactly known for being nice.

Or patient.

Or nurturing.

On his competition show "Hell's Kitchen," he belittles cooks who can't keep up. If people come to him with their problems, he berates them. If someone is struggling to get something right in the kitchen, he curses them out.

From 1940 to 1945, an estimated 1.3 million people were deported to Auschwitz, the largest complex of Nazi concentration camps. More than four out of five of those people—at least 1.1 million people—were murdered there.

On January 27, 1945, Soviet forces liberated the final prisoners from these camps—7,000 people, most of whom were sick or dying. Those of us with a decent public education are familiar with at least a few names of Nazi extermination facilities—Auschwitz, Dachau, Bergen-Belsen—but these are merely a few of the thousands (yes, thousands) of concentration camps, sub camps, and ghettos spread across Europe where Jews and other targets of Hitler's regime were persecuted, tortured, and killed by the millions.

What I realized about feminism after my male friend was disgusted by tampons at a party.

"After all these years, my friend has probably forgotten, but I never have."

It’s okay men. You don’t have to be afraid.

Years ago, a friend went to a party, and something bothered him enough to rant to me about it later.

And it bothered me that he was so incensed about it, but I couldn't put my finger on why. It seemed so petty for him to be upset, and even more so for me to be annoyed with him.

Recently, something reminded me of that scenario, and it made more sense. I'll explain.
