Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's words are coming back to bite her in the butt, and I don't foresee this ending well for the Muslim Democrat.
Omar claims that Americans need to be "more fearful of white men" than they are of jihadist terrorists. Where her fear-mongering comes into play, I'm not sure. She appears to be trying to normalize or desensitize terrorists.
In an interview with al Jazeera host Medhi Hasan, she was asked the following question: “A lot of conservatives in America say that rise in Islamophobia is a result not of hate, but of fear, and legitimate fear, they say, of quote-unquote Jihadist terrorism, whether it’s Fort Hood, San Bernardino or the recent truck attack in New York. What do you say to them?”
Omar responded, “I would say our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country,” she said. “And so if fear was the, the driving force of policies to keep America safe — Americans safe inside of this country — we should be profiling, monitoring, and creating policies to fight the radicalization of white men.”

She also smugly added, “I mean, I think there isn’t a debate about whether Trump is racist. I think he fits into every, every ‘ism."
There you have it. The woman thinks people should be more afraid of the "big, bad white man" than of literal terrorists who make it their suicide mission to murder us.
