Steve - that translation says what they want to smear her for. Not what she actually said. CNN did an actual translation.

I don’t always agree with Omar, but she not crazy and she is targeted by a lot of propaganda. Which you have posted here.

I don't think she is crazy. I just think she has a stronger love for Samslia than for the United States
 
Chances of any forthcoming (and public) apologies?

……The reaction to the Minnesota congresswoman’s speech, at an event to celebrate a recent election in Puntland, a region of Somalia, was based on a mistranslation of her remarks in a video posted online.

That mistranslation made it appear as though the “Squad” Democrat said that Somalis are “people who know they are Somalians first, Muslims second”…….

According to their translators, one of whom is a certified court interpreter, Ms Omar said: “Somalis are people who love each other. It’s possible that we might sometimes have disagreements but we are also people who can rely on each other. We are people who are siblings. We are people with courage. We are people who know that they are Somali and Muslim. We are people who support each other.”

The Reformer also noted another mistranslation, in which Ms Omar was accused of saying: “The US government will only do what Somalians in the US tell them to do. They will do what we want and nothing else. They must follow our orders.”

What she actually said, according to The Reformer’s translation, was: “When I heard that people who call themselves Somalis signed an agreement with Ethiopia, many people reached out to me and said I needed to talk to the US government.

“They asked, ‘What would the US government do?’ My answer was that the US government will do what we tell the US government to do. That is the confidence we need to have as Somalis.”

Ms Omar hit out at both Ms Greene and Mr Emmer in a comment to The Independent.

“I am deeply embarrassed for Tom, Marjorie, and any of the other fools who are attacking me based on this bunk translation, this is desperate and frankly sad, even for them,” she said.

“The attacks being lobbed against me are not only completely false, they are rooted in xenophobia and Islamophobia. This is a manufactured controversy based on an inaccurate translation taken entirely out of context. I’m no stranger to these types of misinformation campaigns targeting Muslim elected officials.”……..

……The Swifties have already hit back on that last point, with the group Voters of Tomorrow warning the Republican front-runner in a statement: “Gen Z has a message for Trump: Go ahead and keep attacking Taylor Swift. We dare you. By picking a fight with Taylor, you are picking a fight with young voters. And the last thing you need is an even worse reputation with us come November.”

Equally predictably, the former president is said to be bitterly jealous that Ms Swift was named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” for 2023 ahead of him, seething that it was “obviously” absurd that her face should grace the magazine’s December issue in place of his.

“Joe Biden might be counting on Taylor Swift to save him, but voters are looking at these sky-high inflation rates and saying, ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’,” Trump adviser Jason Miller told Rolling Stone in a statement, quoting the title of one of her songs from 2012…..



Never heard the term Dink lifestyle, almost scared to google it




 
DINK = Double Income No Kids (i.e. "selfish" couples who have extra disposable income and time to spend it because they both work and don't have any kids soaking it all up)

Which causes one to wonder why having kids is considered not selfish.

Term wasn’t familiar to me (and not as bad as I thought it would be)

They are so mad they cannot control the narrative with a massive swath of voters, so they attack.

It's so transparent.

Meanwhile, Tucker is in Moscow. Guess he gonna broadcast "live from the Kremlin with Tucker Carlson". Lol
 
This dude is just stupid.

His followers should be embarrassed.
