105 Articles Cover Ilhan Omar's Win. Zero Cover Her Anti-Semitism, Finance Investigations, or Perjury Evidence

For two years, U.S. media has maintained a near-blackout on the specific evidence of Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-Minnesota) disturbing character and legal issues. In the 18 hours after Omar was elected to replace Keith Ellison in MN Congressional District 5, the media left zero doubt as to why.

At approximately 3:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, Google News was returning 105 links to the search term "Ilhan Omar" which had been posted since her victory. Those links are listed below.

Not one of the 105 linked articles presents the troubling evidence against Omar -- except, in two or three cases, to dismiss it without explanation.

In all of the links, Ilhan Omar is covered positively as a "history-making" symbol: The first Muslim woman elected to Congress, and a Somali refugee.

Here's a quick summary of Ilhan Omar's controversies: Can you identify a candidate in recent memory with a more disturbing set of skeletons?

  1. Omar has made -- and defended -- anti-Semitic statements that are indistinguishable from Ayatollah Khamenei's Twitter feed.
  2. Just weeks ago, the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board opened an investigation into her after evidence of a third major violation surfaced.
  3. A stunning amount of evidence -- official state documents, court proceedings, and time-stamped, verified social media posts from Omar's own account -- shows that Ilhan Omar may have committed multiple serious federal and state felonies. Immigration fraud, marriage fraud, many instances of perjury, tax fraud, student loan fraud, and more are implicated by the evidence.
  4. Zero evidence has surfaced to counter any of that hard evidence.
  5. On the contrary, Omar has been caught deleting much of it.

The media has made the following decision: Presenting Ilhan Omar as a symbol is more valuable information for the public than presenting Ilhan Omar as an individual with a remarkably troubling background. Transparently, the media has decided this is a hill to die on. Their reputations, their readers' trust, the rule of law, and America's struggle against anti-Semitism are secondary to pleasurable, if false, symbolism.
