Omar Celebrates Court Ruling Against Use Of Terror Watch Lists, Regrets It

Rep. Ilhan Omar is celebrating a recent court ruling where a judge found terror watch lists to be unconstitutional. These are the same watch lists the FBI depends upon to make sure we live and travel safely. “This is tremendous,” declared the Muslim Congresswoman. This a very dangerous ruling, and that’s why patriotic Americans instantly made Omar regret it. You’ll love this.

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar joined Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib in celebrating a court ruling against the use of terror watch lists by American law enforcement.

It’s all thanks to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, also known as CAIR, who brought the suit where Judge Anthony Trenga ruled against the use of terror watch lists. The judge said that it violated the constitutional rights of Americans placed on the list.

This is nothing to be celebrating. The FBI and other law enforcement agencies depend upon the terror watch list to keep Americans safe.

But don’t tell Ilhan Omar, she thinks it “tremendous.” 

“This is tremendous,” Rep. Omar said. “Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard to make sure Constitutional rights are extended to all regardless of religion, race or ethnicity!”

“Many on the list, which is maintained by the FBI and shared with a variety of federal agencies, said they were subjected to frequent and sometimes invasive screenings while traveling which have led to ‘adverse experiences and consequences,’ including being handcuffed at border crossings,” NBC reports.

While we understand the inconvenience this places a few Americans and non-Americans, this ruling ties the hands of the FBI and other law enforcement agencies who are tasked with making sure the majority of Americans live and travel safely.

Only someone who is sympathetic to terrorists would celebrate such a ruling, which is why Rep. Rashida Tlaib is also celebrating the end to terror watch lists.

“I have heard of horrifying stories of Muslim Americans who were placed on the so called ‘watch list,’ with no pathway (you know, due process!) to getting their names removed. Today, it’s Muslims, but tomorrow it can be you, if we don’t stop this madness,” Tlaib said.

After 9/11, America was never the same. Our free society was exploited by those Islamic terrorists who flew planes into our buildings. They proved our love of liberty could be used to mass murder over 3,000 Americans. So, terror watch lists are the least intrusive way to make sure it never happens again.

However, leftists are on the move waging war against law enforcement agencies which they call their enemy. California Governor Gavin Newsom just signed a bill that says citizens can now ignore police officers calling for help. “On Tuesday, California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill that permits adults to refuse to help a police officer who needs help making an arrest,” Daily Wire reports. 

This is the new normal for the far-leftists. Law Enforcement personnel are now viewed as terrorists.

Well, patriotic Americans aren’t on board with Omar and Tlaib’s jaded views. 

“That’s nothing to celebrate. A step backwards in preventing terrorist attacks is not a victory for anyone except terrorists,” tweeted Abraham Roberts.

“A watch list to protect us from terrorists. That is unconstitutional? This is not great news. It is open borders,” tweeted Ken Walker.

“We’ll never forget that some people did something,” tweeted Christina Laugaland including pictures of Omar and Tlaib.

“This isn’t about a religion. It’s about terrorism. The dominance of terrorism among a particular religious group is not what this watch list is about,” tweeted J.D. Rucker.

Rep. Omar and Rep. Tlaib are part of the left who would be happy if all law enforcement agencies were abolished. They also would be extremely excited if all citizens guns were confiscated.

It’s quite telling they are also aligned with CAIR. The two Muslim Congresswomen have been guest speakers at CAIR events most notably where Omar said her infamous line: “Some people did something,” referring to 9/11.

So, when they took the oath of office “to protect and defend the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic,” were they telling the truth? You be the judge. The preponderance of evidence suggests their values do not align with American patriots. Their sympathies appear to lie elsewhere.

You don’t have to be a conservative to be called a true American patriot. However, you must love this country before all others and hold no beliefs that encourage you to alter America by holding law enforcement agencies in contempt. They ensure our public safety against our enemies who call for our utter destruction.
