Well, that's a lot better than George W telling Americans to go out and shop or the terrorists would win.
Interesting to recall that just a few days ago, several Republicans wouldn't vote for a condemnation of all forms of bigotry (not just antisemitism). They said it made the condemnation meaningless.
Omar encourages fellow Muslims to "go and do their prayers" Friday: "We must face fear and we must remember that love trumps hate"
Dems: "Love trumps hate."
GOP: "Love Trump's hate!"
I wonder how Faux News will spin this?
"Muslim Terrorist from Minnesota tells Muslims to pray for guns and ammo to murder good white Evangelical Christians"
Or something like that...
You mean she's branching out from anti-Semitism?
I really like what she said. It's quite beautiful actually. And, boy, does it ever put into perspective her clumsily worded statements that produced such over the top condemnation as well as the need to address the hate directed at Muslims.
Absolutely, continue with your everyday life while being aware and thinking of others. That process defeats those who would terrorize every time.
As pointed out elsewhere, right-wing terrorists have now massacred people in a church, a synagogue and a mosque. What a sick world we live in.
Rep. Llhan Omar responded perfectly I think.Well said!
In my experience, prayers work 100% of the time if I accept any outcome as God's equally valid "answer." If I don't, prayers work 1/n where n is the number of possible outcomes.
Somebody over to MS&NBC done got her name on that pitcher all backerds.
Sure, but that doesn't diminish the message of 'live your lives, and don't let fear control you'.
After all, letting fear control them is what these terrorists are doing. Anger, hate... it's all based in fear.
I think it is exactly what Muslims should do. Christians too. The last thing any of us should do is allow any terrorist to think we are terrorized by hideous acts of violence.
How refreshing to hear this aphorism we haven't heard since the last terrorist attack.
Or, "Trump loves hate!"
Always thought that was a particularly stupid bit of marketing.
All in the name of preventing liberals from conducting a war on religion.
Got any better approach?
Yes. Stop repeating that absurd Bush-speak as if it gives smart guidance.
Was ANYONE actually going to stop praying because of a shooting?
