How Demonizing Ilhan Omar Validates White Supremacy As America’s Most Valuable Currency

The White House and Fox News are guilty of Islamophobia

The United States is a shithole country.

President Trump believes that shitty nations are the ones that showcase Black and Brown citizens, under ruthless regimes, with the infusion of bribery and corruption, and constant state of lawlessness that institutes the climate of societal dysfunction at the expense of the vulnerable who are dangerously expendable.

That sounds a lot like the the current state of affairs in a nation that used to be the endearing demonstration of avid diplomacy, and practiced solidarity in times of global strife, that stems from tragedies that unite all corners of the earth in the unspeakable grief, that humanizes through the comforting shield of a former “world police.”

But those years are long gone.

What remains is the hard shell of discontentment that hovers over the disabled cords of authoritativeness, that has repurposed America into the lone realm of gross negligence, that is spurned by the mechanisms of White nationalism, that was birthed from the creed of the GOP.

Non-White Americans are in a lot of trouble.

Donald Trump is a White supremacist who didn’t take his sweet time revealing the potency of his utter hatred for the population that isn’t White and strategically aligned with the agenda of Whiteness.

It was loud and clear even before his vomit-inducing inauguration where his first outing on the global stage was the strong warning against detractors of his nefarious agenda, as he laid his cracked foundation, filled with pot holes that are meant to entrap those who dare to speak out against the criminality of this tempestuous administration.

Muslim-Americans have always been in a shit load of trouble.

Islamic militant cells have done an impeccable job when it comes to distorting the religion of Islam with the falsehoods of a premise, that was never meant to be handcuffed to an otherwise gorgeous mode of worship, that elaborates the elegance of adhering to a stoically disciplined disposition that I was lucky enough to assimilate during my boarding school education.

The studies show that particularly after the horrific events of 9/11, most Americans are quite skeptical about Americans who practice Islam, and the fact of the matter is that after the sharp increase in Islamophobic attacks that went into overdrive after 2001, almost 20 years later, things are substantially worse, but of course, that isn’t something the media is at all concerned with delivering.

Instead, we are bombarded with the grossness of Trump TV.

All day, everyday, mainstream organizations like CNN and MSNBC, surpass the preferences of Trump’s first and only love, Fox News, by pledging allegiance to the deplorable antics of a future felon, with non-stop coverage, that does the exact opposite of what overpaid network executives swear they’re accomplishing.

As a result, viewers are woefully deprived of urgently activated items that should be highlighted and thoroughly examined for the benefit of wearied patriots, who need to be duly informed about the precariousness of the state of our union, and how this present nightmare will surely be the bumpy ride to the destination that won’t provide refunds or the option for a return ticket.

Trump’s epic victory was the righteous “fuck you” to Black and Brown America, and the rest of the “shitholes” who don’t recognize the evangelical call to prayer, with the anointing of Anglo-Saxon blood, that will curdle if blended with the poison of colored flesh or the version of the Call to Prayer that unapologetically evokes the praises of Allah.

We are now comfortably secured in the knowledge that our White supremacist leader, is fully armed with the unrelenting support and adulation of his colleagues, and obsessed base of worshippers, and this systemic assault on non-White America has been endorsed by the pillars of power on both sides of the aisles.

If we never feared for our lives, then it’s about time we begin the process of unleashed paranoia.

America was never beautiful, it was a myriad of complexities, spliced together to create the imperfect but acceptable collage of invoices, that logged in the vibrant cultural differences that comprised of law-abiding citizens, and those aiming for that status, who are more than capable of making their ample contributions for the goal of beautifying a landscape that still stood the chance of accommodating that makeover.

Unfortunately the ugliness that radiates from the White House is a pungent recipe of extremes that’s silently breeding deadliness with the tools of mass destruction that we believed existed elsewhere, but is actually blooming in our backyards.

Donald Trump is executing the expendables with the mandate of domestic terrorism, at the hands of White male terrorists, who at this very moment are plotting to graze Muslim-American communities to the ground in a fashion that mimics the activities of Boko Haram in Northern Nigeria.

This toxic administration is motivated by the intoxication of White privilege that permits the gangster who stole the presidency to be as abhorrent as he can stand, without restrictions. He is able to call Mexicans “murderers” and “rapists” while speaking very highly of White supremacists who storm American cities for the thrill of creating a national emergency.

Your president is able to thrash around his absolute power in ways that terrifically offend and sicken, as he relentlessly condemns media outlets that don’t cater to his divisiveness, as well as notables in government who vocally express disapproval when the Commander-in-Chief commands the chains of disorder to wrap around ultra-sensitive issues that need to be handled with care.

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has to be acutely aware of the danger she is in and how the high alert is being heightened by the hate-filled verbiage that the White House is actively encouraging, through communication portals, and the uncensored graphicness of a celebrated tyrant, who is determined to use his target as the towering example of what can happen to Americans, who resemble her template and belief system.

The Muslim-American with roots in Somalia, who came to America with the hopes of utilizing her unique skill set to furnish the authenticity of the “American Dream,” has been ceremoniously vilified by Republicans and their master, because of the brutality of her honesty, and how it gives the White House all the ammunition it needs to co-sign the derogatory language that attacks the Democratic party with accusations of anti-Semitism.

The goal is to make Ilhan Omar the disease that can only be cured with her dismissal.

Her no-nonsense approach is deemed “un-American” because of her controversial background, and how it inspires the revolting exercise of demonization, that Republicans in West Virginia were able to illustrate with the disgusting poster that depicts the imagery of the day of infamy with the burning Twin Towers, and the Muslim woman in Congress who represents what America won’t tolerate.

Whether or not her comments about the questionable backing of Israel and how it proves that there are other forces at play, that need to be vetted for the sake of justifying why it’s logical for the people of Palestine to endure inhumane treatment, that isn’t eliciting nearly enough empathy, is really not the debate that should be warring at this time.

What needs to be discussed is the not so discreet weaponizing of America’s most valuable currency — White supremacy — and how it has successfully empowered the president and his well-positioned helpers with the audacity to remain shielded in the valves of hypocrisy, as they spew out harmfully repulsive rhetoric without bearing consequences that should be swiftly levied without hesitancy.

Imagine the bullish moves of conservatives and the media outfits that stimulate their narrative, and how it has become the normalized function of engagement to produce gutless monologues with the renderings of Islamophobia and xenophobia, all intertwined in a package deal, that is formalized for the violent palettes of White male terrorists-in-training, who are starved for the attention of zeroing in on prized prey.

Fox News host and supposed “law expert” Jeanine Pirro, who is a staunch ally of Trump, recently used a segment on her “tremendously” loathsome show, Justice with Judge Jeanine, to engage in a bigoted rant against Congresswoman Omar with the unforgivable gesture of likening her hijab to the sealed devotion to Sharia law.

“Think about it: Omar wears a hijab.” “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

Pirro essentially directed her ignorant viewers to reinitiate the damaging stereotypes of Muslims, by classifying Omar as a fanatic, who accommodates the extremes of a lifestyle that extremists who are invested in the misinterpretation of one of the most misunderstood religions in the world, evilly summon as leverage for global dominion.

It’s breathtakingly abominable that an employee of a major cable network, that boasts solidly impressive viewership, can willfully put the life of a prominent Black Muslim-American woman at high risk, by feeding her to the wolves, who are ravenous for a meaty incentive that will justify why a societal heretic, who stands for everything that challenges the supremacy of White America has to be permanently silenced.

After the uproar ensued, Fox News was forced to release the generic statement that read as follows:

“We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar.” “They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”

Pirro was also incapable of relying on the hate-driven mechanisms of this volatile climate, that has been flexed by the wiles of a president, who thrives off of the euphoria that comes with recognizing his omnipotency in this staged era of debilitating virulency.

Her disingenuous response was neither an apology nor admission of guilt.

“I’ve seen a lot of comments about my opening statement from Saturday night’s show and I did not call Rep. Omar un-American.” “My intention was to ask a question and start a debate, but of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution.”

Pirro then proceeded to add the daring provocation to the young woman that she basically terrorized with words of hate, by inviting Omar to the scene of the crime “to discuss all of the important issues facing America today.”

First off, it’s disconcerting to comprehend that Fox is unwilling to do what is pretty much a no-brainer when it comes to promptly firing Pirro for the hateful words that came out of her mouth.

Congresswoman Omar is the punching bag that the Trump administration can batter with prejudiced blows, that are echoed by soldiers of the ongoing race war, that’s gathering mass casualties without the interference of the law or those who lied about upholding it.

Her demonization is being endured by House Democrats who are helplessly juggling unsalvageable dilemma, that has left them embarrassingly powerless, as they meekly draft up the resolution that Republicans demanded as payback for Steve King, who has never apologized for his long-standing love affair with White supremacy.

And why should he?

President Trump not too long ago, outed himself as a White nationalist, and while he’s had plenty to say about Omar and her unpatriotic stance as a Black Muslim, who denounces the glaring discrepancies that he energetically champions, it appears that Steve King’s documented disgust for immigrants and non-Whites in general, seamlessly aligns with the mission statement of the GOP.

From blatantly ignoring the Ethiopian Airlines disaster, that took the lives of all those onboard, including 8 Americans, to turning a blind eye to the rising occurrences of hate crimes that are as a result of his thematic messaging of fatal intolerance — Trump is undoubtedly gearing up to complete his task of Whitening America with the blotting out of the darker population as he prepares his re-election bid.

And he’s using the systemic assault on Omar Ilhan as his winning ticket, with the cheering of his base and the stylized chaos of liberals.

It’s going to cost a lot more than we can rally to defeat the currency of Whiteness, and so far we’ve come up woefully short.
