Ilhan Omar Promotes Smear Of Famed Anti-Iranian Regime Journalist. Journalist Issues Stunning Response.

by Hank Berrien
January 10, 2020



On Monday, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) promoted an article attempting to smear famed journalist Masih Alinejad, an outspoken opponent of the theocratic and despotic Iranian regime. That prompted a withering ten-tweet blast from Alinejad, who pointed out Omar's silence while others were suffering at the hands of the Iranian regime.

Iranian writers and actors slammed Omar: Iranian-Canadian writer/editor Maryam Nayeb Yazdi tweeted, "Masih Alinejad is receiving death threats. Rape threats. Her brother's being held hostage by the IRGC. Is it suspicious to work for VOA? Negar Mortazavi (the Rania Khalek for Iran) who you support worked for VOA. How could you ever explain this tweet, Ilhan? My heart's crying."

Actress Nazanin Boniadiechoed, "This piece is a defamatory hit job against @AlinejadMasih, a journalist who is already facing death and rape threats and whose brother has been taken hostage by the IRI to silence her. Why is a member of the U.S. Congress — a female member at that — endorsing it?"

But the most powerful rejoinder came from Alinejad herself, who wrote:

Earlier this week, Rep Ilhan Omar shared a defamatory article about me on social media by a Koch-Brothers funded "think tank" co-founded by a known sympathizer of the Iranian regime.

Here's my response to @IlhanMN

Ilhan Omar, when my innocent brother was recently taken hostage by the regime, solely due to my advocacy of civil rights for Iran, I reached out to you, expecting solidarity from you. However, you were silent. You gave no reaction.When women like Saba Kordafshari, Yasaman Aryani, Monireh Arabshahi and Mojgan Keshavarz were arrested for protesting against compulsory hijab in Iran and were sentenced to a total of 95 years in prison, you were silent.

When my 70-year-old mother was interrogated for my activities by the Revolutionary Guards, I asked for your help, but you were silent yet again.

You're silent even now as 176 people have been killed onboard a Ukraine Airlines plane under suspicious circumstances in Iran. After months of silence, you instead chose to amplify a smear campaign against me, a fellow woman of color. Your only comments to all these human rights abuses is to repeat Islamic Republic propaganda against me.

As a journalist, I am an independent contractor for a number of media outlets, including the Persian-language service of Voice of America, which was created to counter the propaganda of authoritarian adversaries like the Soviet Union. This was evident to all who know my work, including millions of voiceless Iranians. Is this what you're bullying me for?

By bullying a freelance journalist like me, you are empowering the Revolutionary Guards to put more pressure on my family. Those of us who hail from countries ruled by tyrants are capable of denouncing both the cruel policies of Trump & dictators in our native lands. I've openly condemned Trump's travel ban—which separated me from my son in the UK—and his threats of attacking cultural sites in Iran.

I've also condemned the Islamic Republic's ban on Iranian dissidents that prevented people like me from going home. I have loudly protested a potential war against Iran years before you entered the Congress.

Yet, when I divulge the repression of the Islamic Republic, attacks against me proliferate by the regime & their supporters in the West. I'd have never imagined that one day a member of Congress, a fellow woman of colour, would join with my oppressors in trying to defame me.

Oh same here, definitely. It's not that I'm a big "fan" of Masih Alinejad. Never heard of her before today. I'm just pointing out that Ilhan Omar is filth.

How can she be expected to respond to everyone asking for her help when somebody did something?

I’m not overly concerned with the statements concerning her position on the “protected class grievance hierarchy” .

From my perspective, the entire diatribe does bring to light what is important above all else in Omar’s belief structure.. Islam being over everything else Or probably the only important thing. Omar is willing to sell out all other “grievance classes” to the mental disorder she calls religion.

Most here wouldn’t use their own rake to put her out if she was on fire so to speak. We simply see her as the enemy of all we stand for and that’s good enough for us.

The ones that should take heed and understand what is being said are the ones who stand next to her. They themselves are in the greatest danger. The enemy of your enemy is not your friend, one can have many enemies. Hopefully they will wind up attacking each other. But that will require a third party to start the conflict. Is that what this journalist is attempting?

Currently Islam and Socialism make good bedfellows, the leadership of both groups understand that to impose their will on others physical coercion is necessary. Including the killing of their opposition.

So, Omar is just the female Obama. A Muslim in government willing to do anything to harm the country we love, to help the Muslim enemy.

My Lord, this is one vile woman. What an embarrassment to US governance and US immigration and refugee policy.

Middle finger salute.
