Ilhan Omar has illegally used her position in Congress to call for a boycott of the Tucker Carlson show. Here’s hoping that Carlson and Fox news doesn’t wimp out and that they file ethics charges against the freshman House member. Abuse of power can get you removed from your House seat. Omar is angry because Carlson pointed out Omar’s racism, so she is calling for a boycott. She then accused Fox news of giving a platform to a WHITE SUPREMACIST. Although the law does allow a member of Congress to make questionable charges against individuals, it does not allow blatant defamation charges or to try to do economic harm against a person or a corporation.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) endorsed a campaign to pressure advertisers to drop Fox News after a scathing criticism from Tucker Carlson that she called racist.
“Fox News is now giving a nightly platform to white supremacist rhetoric. It’s dangerous,” Omar tweeted.
Last night, Tucker Carlson launched a racist attack on @IlhanMN saying that she “is a living fire alarm.”

“Advertisers should not be underwriting hate speech,” she concluded.
She reposted a video of the commentary from Carlson, and a tweet that called it a “racist attack,” while calling on advertisers to drop the cable news network and asking Twitter users to pressure them.
“Omar isn’t disappointed in America, she’s enraged by it,” said Carlson in his commentary from his show.
“Virtually every public statement she makes accuses Americans of bigotry and racism. This is an immoral country she says, she has undisguised contempt for the United States and for its people,” he adds.
