Two Somali Women

Two Somali woman can be used to emphasize the blatant hypocrisy and outright bias of the main stream media.

One is U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who has over the past few months gotten little, if any media criticism or follow-up for her dishonest criticism of the United States' immigration policies, her subtle reluctance to condemn Islamic terrorism, her flippant dismissal of the 9/11 attacks, her loose affiliation with Islamist groups (e.g., CAIR) that actively support terror organizations such as Hamas, and her her continuing anti-Israel and anti-Semitic statements. Her fellow Squad members, along with their trained hamsters in the media, leap to protect Omar from criticism, using race, gender and religion as her force field. But there's a problem with that approach.

There's another Somali women who has experienced the same (or worse) horrors as Omar, who has immigrated to the West, has been elected to political office, and is a rational, intelligent spokesperson for her positions. The problem is that her positions do not fit the current left-wing narrative promulgated by Democrats' trained hamsters in the media. This Somali woman, Ayaan Hirsi-Ali, is shunned by the media. She's almost never interviewed by main stream media sources, is called a bigot and an Islamophobe (she's a Muslim person of color), and is effectively told to 'go back where you come from' by progressives on a regular basis. Oh yeah, she expresses admiration for the United States and lauds the freedoms that we have and the opportunities for immigrants that we provide. The horror!

Two Somali women—one a bitter left-wing, anti-Semitic, anti-American ideologue. The other, a thoughtful critic of Islamist atrocities conducted against the West and against Muslims worldwide. Omar, lionized and protected by a media whose sole purpose is to promote the current leftist narrative. Hirsi-Ali, shunned and attacked because her lucid critique of Islamist ideology doesn't fit that same narrative.

Two Somali women. One treated as a hero by the trained hamsters in the media, the other as a non-entity at best or a villain at worst. There's only one problem—the trained hamsters have it exactly backward, but then again, they're too biased and too stupid to recognize any of that.
