Why Islamophobia Was Invented & Opposing Ilhan Omar (Pt.2)| Dalia al-Aqidi | POLITICS | Rubin Report

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Dalia al-Aqidi (Journalist, Republican Candidate) about why she is challenging Rep Ilhan Omar for her congressional seat in the fifth district of Minnesota. Dalia is a Muslim refugee who grew up in Iraq under Saddam Hussein. Daila describes why the term islamophobia is deployed as a tactic to silence critics. She describes how she is immune to Ilhan Omar’s identity politics because she is also a Muslim immigrant. Because of this she has the ability to ask Omar about her connections to Recep Tayyip Erdogan the President of Turkey, as well as CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood. She also details some of the absurd lies of Ilhan Omar such as the time she voted against a Somali aid package, but then praised the bill in a press conference after the vote.

Dalia will join Dave Rubin on stage in Minneapolis during the Don’t Burn This Book Tour. Tickets here: https://www1.ticketmaster.com/event/06005855DB3DC506
