    Let me help you out here.

    All of the people you mentioned were American heroes who fought to correct inequities in our society that had been in place for years before they were were born or became active in their causes. All of the inequities they fought against made sense sense to the American population and the people had no problems with making the various social adjustments. It wasn't that the general pop were in favor of continuing these social issues, it was that they weren't being thought of in the way that these activists brought them to our attention.

    Omar is fighting for things that people already have (thanks in no small part to your little list). The equalities are there, all the freedoms are there etc. The system has pretty much been fixed. So Omar is doing nothing more than taking people that can't seem to make it on their own (for whatever reason) and making a cause out of it when in actuality none exists. I've said this before…some of the most pathetic people are the ones fighting to get what they already have. She is one of those people.

    So before you lump her in with Martin Luther King, Theodore Roosevelt, Susan B. Anthony, Robert F. Kennedy, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Cesar Chavez and Rachel Carson (people that actually accomplished something) try thinking it through a little bit.

    She should be lumped in with Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson (people that accomplish nothing) more than your group. She fits right in with those who have made race baiting an industry.
    Funny because NOBODY on your side said that any of these people loved their country when they were actively seeking to make change. They were described exactly how you are describing Ilhan now interestingly enough.
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    First of all, you can't help me with a damn thing. You are stupider then I am, and that is quite a accomplishment.

    Second, if I were lumping Ihan Omar in with that group I would had put her name in there. So you are spinning your wheels on some internal argument in your head that have nothing to do with me.

    Third, everyone I mentioned were not treated like American heroes in their time. Even FDR faced down conspiracy to overthrow his presidency by rich business men, and the rich donor class spent my whole lifetime undoing his greatest accomplishment, the New Deal. Theodore's financial policies has been undone by them as well. MLK was on the KKK death list and most politicians on both sides of the fence avoided him for political reasons

    The point I was making was these guys weren't loved for pointing out the problems this country had during, for some short, lifetime. It is only in hindsight and when they are dead that they were proclaimed American heroes. It has always been that way, when it comes to social and political leaders that non-whites follows that don't compromise on voicing our fears and hopes.


    When it comes to Ilhan Omar, she is small potatoes compare to these guys, but she is still serving her community by pointing out the problems they are having as well as the fears they hold.

    You may not like it, but then again she isn't for you or represents you. If she did, she would be totally useless to the people who support her as your opinions are.

    Keep clinging to that bs Norman Rockwell Americana fantasy

    Wrong again.

    I thing it's pretty obvious that for the most part people on that loved the US. The Roosevelts, Kennedy, MLK, Susan B Anthony…I think that's a safe assumption. Can't say for sure about Carson and Chavez but I would lean towards a yes.

    But think what you want.

    The post was just thrown out there with no indication as to what it was relating to or who said it. Since I saw it that way and who posted it, I gave it little thought.

    I guess we are assuming Omar said it. Great. That is to her credit. It is the first positive thing I have ever read that this woman said about the US. Thanks for letting me know.
    You ceasing your “when has she ever said anything positive about the US” rhetoric is all the thanks I’ll need.

    Yeah it’s funny because everyone assumes because MLK is so loved today he must have been so loved in his own time, but he was hated by a large segment of the population. He was so hated in fact, someone literally killed him.

    Right. But you do.

    Maybe you could inform us all. Let us in on your wisdom.

    MLK was one of the most important Americans in my lifetime.

    A true American spirit.

    Regardless of that…sadly, there are and always will be loonies around.

    And, still, no one can comment on Omar's little tweet about the rich guys being misrepresented by Omar.

    now that he is dead.

    There is no way on God's sweet earth you are going to convince us you were a MLK supporter while he was live. Not with the postings you being dropping. Just the fact you don't acknowledge the hate he received during his life time shows us how out of step you were with his policies.

    Wow! You know so much.

    Bold one…since there is no way, I will not even try.

    Bold two…when has " the hate he received during his life time" ever popped up in a thread that I participated in?

    Bold three…you have no idea as to what you are talking about.
