Lawfare Project founder Brooke Goldstein, who describes herself as a human rights lawyer, was responding to Carlson's criticism of Omar's stance on Israel when she made the comments.

"First of all, this is a woman who called you a white supremacist and the irony there is that if she wasn't a member of Congress, she would be a member of the KKK", she said. Carlson said. "She didn't arrive from a Kenyan refugee camp announcing people as bigots for a political campaign".

Omar fired back at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after she criticized the freshmen Democrats for voting against the $4.6 billion border bill signed into law last week by President Trump by saying "All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world ..."

At the end of the 22-minute show opener, Carlson shouted out Fox News for standing behind him.

On Tuesday, Carlson said USA immigration laws are "dangerous" because they let people like Omar, who he said "hates" America, into the country. Instead, it was the country that had failed to live up to its founding ideals, a place that had disappointed her and so many immigrants, refugees and minorities like her.

"I couldn't control my emotions", Omar told students, "because I couldn't understand how a roomful of educated adults could do something so unjust".

"She might have had a prior [arrest]", Omar said. Omar lies shamelessly for more reasons than one, but the Post showed her lying shamelessly to disparage the United States. In some ways, the real villain in the Ilhan Omar story isn't Omar, it is a group of our fellow Americans.

Asked about the story, Omar admitted "she may have flubbed some facts", Jaffe and Mekhennet wrote. "They just tried to silence us". "African American lady" who had to spend a weekend in jail after stealing a $2 loaf of bread to feed her "starving 5-year-old granddaughter". As we have noted many times, however, she is a bottomless fount of grievances and complaints.

"She has undisguised contempt for the United States and for its people", Carlson said. Ilhan Omar and her allies in Congress immediately demanded that this show be pulled off the air.

"The left went berserk; they hate it when you say the true things", Carlson said. "She was trying to make the point that Republicans didn't care for the troops". The irony there is that if she wasn't a member of Congress, she'd be a member of the KKK. This has nothing to do with Israel, they are direct attacks on American Jews, a minority community in the United States. "She is using politics as an affirmative defense to bigoted discrimination against American Jews". "Some of the very people we try hardest to help have come to hate us passionately", he continued, which CNN media commentator Brian Stelter described as an "extraordinary leap" from Omar's comments to the Post.
