“On the May 23 edition of her prime-time show, Fox News host Laura Ingraham aired a deceptively edited clip of a speech by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to imply that she opposes people practicing their religious faith, despite the fact that Omar is a practicing Muslim.

On May 22, Omar gave a speech on the House floor about the wave of anti-abortion bills being pushed in states across the country and criticized the hypocrisy among the “religious right” on such policy decisions. Omar called out “religious fundamentalists” who she said are “trying to manipulate state laws in order to impose their beliefs on an entire society.” She mentioned a recently defeated Texas bill that would have opened the possibility of giving the death penalty to people who get an abortion, saying, “If that was being proposed by any other country, we would be calling it a dangerous violation of human rights. But because it’s happening here, with the support of the ultra-conservative religious right, we call it religious freedom.” Omar also listed Republicans whose personal actions contradicted policies that they fought to push on the American public, and said, “How could it be that an entire century has passed [since women got the right to vote] and we are still forced to fight for our rights as women, as human beings, and as Americans. This should outrage every single person. It certainly outrages me, and we can no longer stand for it.”

On her show, Ingraham aired the clip of Omar saying, “I am frustrated every single time I hear people speaking about their faith and pushing that onto other people.” Ingraham also played a clip from earlier in the speech in which Omar criticized “those that talk about their faith and want to push policies because of their faith” when they are “the ones that simply are caught with the hypocrisy of not living it out in their personal lives.” Ingraham mischaracterized her comments by saying, “I guess we are offending her by speaking about faith.” Ingraham also questioned Omar’s understanding of what it means to be American, saying, “This is a fundamental misunderstanding, purposeful or not, of what we are.” Her guest, Faith & Freedom Coalition Chairman Ralph Reed, agreed, adding, “There are few things, Laura, that are more distinctly and characteristically American than bringing your faith into the public square and using it to impact the culture for the common good.”

  1. Are you worried about the effects edited videos like this one have on our political discourse?

  2. Literal Nazis are running around Detroit harassing gay pride attendees . People want act like they have a legitimate argument when it comes to omar ?

    If you're soooo worried about antisemitism focus your energy on stopping this growing global white nationalist/supremacist (terrorist group) problem not on wasting energy to pretend ilhan omar is antisemitic cause she's not there'd be a lot more than a few out of context tweets if she were.

    In case you need it spelled out nazi/white nationalist are the real danger to the Jewish community and every other community for that matter, idiot! <_<

  3. Omar smears herself, so does TYT.

  4. Let me translate for Laura: A brown-skinned woman who speaks her mind … CRUCIFY HER! Ingraham spews nothing but effluent, incites violence, … I'm hoping she goes out like Alex Jones … a Blue Fart …

  10. She's a woman of color in a position of power. She's their perfect scapegoat. Muslim, intelligent and a woman?! Triple threat.
    I have tremendous respect for Senator Omar. Total bad ass.


  12. Omar hates America, u have no right to beffffrustrated, trashy ho

  13. Hearing omars voice makes me throw up shes garbage

  14. “May Allah open the open the eyes of the world to see the evil of Israel in Gaza”. She wears a hijab and is a Muslim. How can she be anti-Semitic?

  15. Abort the infidel babies, save the Muslim babies.

  16. Sign the petition Freedomworks! Remove her from Congress! Wake up Minnesota Farmer's and firefighters! Take her passport before she flees the USA with classified information! Shàlom🕎✡️

  17. Lol..TYTs.. fear mongering ? Pot calling the kettle… oops, trigger word.. silly Race baiting Turks

  18. Fox News: Shame on you! Religion removed from public school, so why does RELIGION need to be used by Right-Wing believers to cover-up their SEXUAL PLEASURES?

  19. I guess the diaper head tweet about Latino's not being smart is not racist…
    Maybe to the left community of the young turds.

  20. Some people are listening to the dems chant of all rights have limits.

  21. Aside from Laura Ingraham's desperate attempt to assassinate Ilhan's character I am going to digress and say Ilhan looks like Kerri Washington!! 🙂

  22. The white trash from state T.V Fox "news", won't be happy until one of their white, mentally deranged low I.Q Trumpturds assassinates AOC or Ilhan Omar.

  23. I do like omar but trans people are disgusting!

  24. Ilhan Omar also criticized Saudi Arabia does that make her a islamophobe?

  25. OMAR THE RAG HEAD The goat herder is so repulsive, she gives me gas, I heard Somalians eat
    rats, I read someone was setting up a "rat stand", seriously, it was 'rats on a stick", they put a thin
    stick thru the little fellow, & cook it over an open fire, I bet the GOAT HERDER eats rats. She resembles a rat.

  26. Is it true Omar wanted to use Americans resources to free thousands of muslims in China but she can't stand hearing people use their religion in a conversation? Obviously she's not for America she just wants to use Americans as a tool to benefit her anti-American agenda

  27. You can't do damage control on something this anti-American unless you feel the same way and are the same thing.

  28. Reading comment stating that Omar is infiltrating America and is very anti-American I was skeptical at 1st

    but after watching a few of her videos I'd have to agree with the people that are bold enough strong enough to stand up and speak out against Somebody in office the so anti-American As Omar.

  29. Democrats equal professional provocateurs

  30. The independents and people who hold no political party are overwhelmingly on the side of the right on this issue.

    Again, this bogus channel spreading VERY FAKE news.

    Why social media hasn't penalized this channel when they do it to others every day is mind boggling.

    But hey, continue with the total bullshit.

    Also, remember, it's not the opinion of the right or the left that matters, it is the opinions of the others that will drive the 2020 Presidential election, and just for the record, Trump will win 2020 by a landslide because of this.


  32. She is antisemitic for Christ sakes she is a Muslim

  33. The push for abortion bans are about the birth dearth, it's all racism

  34. MAGA(TS ) are scared…. these women of color are making waves among people across the board

  35. Fox News is the only real news out there. Omar should be deported

  36. AS much as i don,t like this rep. i have to agree with her .

  37. Republicans believe anything Fox tells them.

  38. Is Laura ingram a female??? i thought she Was the first trans anchor on Fox.

  39. Omar is Same Muslim trash as Obama

  40. Atheists and agnostics are the only ones in America who are showing their religion down other people’s throat.

  41. Muslims should be forced to pick either the Constitution or Sharia Law, Not Both.

  42. fact: Islamophobes in govt & msm dont have the human decency to afford muslims benefit of doubt AND accuse them of dual loyalty…nope its all taqqiya. all the times muslim do the right thing its just a tactic to trick us into sharia…etc. its sick
    let that sink in

  43. 7:41 tyt bends over backwards trying to untangle the (((zionists))) & the RIGHT from each other….assman is a zionist bro and so are most msm OBVIOUSLY to them hijab is antisemitic and deeply offensive
    ffs zionist narrative of history dictates 6000 yrs of relentless persecution…smh like theyre the only persecuted peoples. china has been persecuting turkic people before JUDAISM was born in fact abraham probably move to the middle east escaping chinese bs lol thats totally possible CENK :p

  44. Correction, right wing criticizes an antisemite.
