Speak truth to power even when power distorts your words to threaten you.
Right wingnuts and Donald Trump have teamed up (what else is new?) to attack Representative Ilhan Omar (D).

That quote is from Elie Wiesel. Speak out.

The President is inciting violence against a sitting Congresswoman—and an entire group of Americans based on their religion. It’s disgusting. It’s shameful. And any elected leader who refuses to condemn it shares responsibility for it.

Enough is enough. No more silence, with NY Post and now Trump taking Ilhan’s words out of context to incite violence toward her, it’s time for more Dems to speak up. Clearly the GOP is fine with this shameful stunt, but we cannot stand by.

There isn’t a single persuadable voter in the electorate who might vote for Democrats if we abandon @IlhanMN to the wolves, but will abandon us if we defend her.
All the attacks on Ilhan Omar are in bad faith. All of them. Failure to defend her isn’t smart. It’s cowardice.
