Ilhan Omar tries to ‘prove’ her fake gun statistic is correct, and FAILS

So Ilhan Omar has been a laughing stock for a while after she posted a weird stat about gun statistics that even the left was questioning.

Last night she tried to justify her stat and fell flat on her burka.

She cites the Amnesty International number that has to do with ALL gun deaths, even ones that gun laws just aren’t going to be able to prevent. That doesn’t make any sense.

Here’s what politifact said:

Finally, Amnesty International states that every day more than 500 people die from gun violence — around the world. That’s the figure Omar’s office cited to back up her statement, and it arguably is low.

A study published in 2018 in the Journal of the American Medical Association said there are about 250,000 gun deaths worldwide per year. That would amount to 685 per day.

But Omar’s claim was clearly made in the context of legislation that would affect gun transactions only in the United States.

Omar’s spokesman, Jeremy Slevin, defended Omar’s use of the 500 figure. But he acknowledged to us that Omar’s tweet was in the context of domestic legislation and that the reference to 500 could have been more precise.

Great job, moron. But of course, if you point this out, you’re probably a racist, right? Right.

  1. How many die of natural causes each day? I bet it’s way more than 500… so, I call on this nation to pass a law banning nature!

  2. Let’s see now, 500 a day? That would amount to about 180,000 a year. Good job, Omar. Maybe you need to take a math course so you can get your GED.

  3. Wait wait wait – you’re including those committed worldwide? So, like, when your Islamic fundamentalists brotherhusbands gun down villages and murder Jews and Christians wherever they can find them…. you’re against that? Since when?

    If you’re operating on worldwide numbers, Ilhan, then clearly you support gun violence.

  4. Keep talking rag top hear that ca-ching ? The sound of the register finalizing another gun sale.

    1. I’m from MN but not her district.

      Her district is really far different than the rest of the state.

  5. Mass shootings are the catalyst for taking away our guns. How many mass shooting deaths were there in 2018?
    a) 500 per day
    b) 100 per day
    c) 50 per day
    d) 1 per day
    AOC would probably pick a) but py would correctly answer that the daily odds of being a mass shooting victim are 320,000,000 to one … or one a day

    1. @pybop If you don’t include the Democrat controlled cities, the USA is among the lowest in homocide by gun.

  6. This rag of oppression wearing brother marrying muzzie has out stayed her welcome. She is not American and that real Americans put up with her crap is the real issue. The right just complains on blogs saying we won’t recognize our country in insert number of years. It is way past time for those of us that value our freedom and liberty to stop this threat. Omar and her ilk are subhuman bags of feces.

  7. Hey Ilhan Omar out of them 500 people that die every day from gun violence 499 of them was self defense killings. (SCAR)

  8. Just think, because of closed primaries and demographics of her district, she’ll be in Congress for the next 40 years.

  9. As if she’s not in enough trouble already for her taxes Omar continues to lie and continues to be shown as a liar.

  10. This crap is going to continue until we eliminate the problem in different phases 1) take out the media, go after their advertisers. 2) clean house in judges. 3) shut off border, militarize the border and install wall. To come in will be funneled to heavily armed port of entry 4) dismantle education system, colleges must stand on their own, meaning defund them 5) immigrants that don’t assimilate, citizenship revoked and removed. 6) remove illegals 7) arrest politicians involved in sanctuary cities.
    When Number 1 is a success is when the house of cards begins to collapse because the cloak will be removed of what these corrupt politicians on both sides have been doing. Eliminate judges that don’t follow the constitution, will prevent the slowdown of changes

  11. I give it 50 years and we won’t be the United States any more. It will be by name only. We won’t be able to recognize her otherwise. I will be in the grave by then, but I fear for our children and grandchildren.

    1. Being too optimistic there @kong1967! 50 years? I give it a great deal less. So glad I’m old. Jesus is coming soon!

      1. @democratsrfubar Lol, you’re not the only one that says that. Seems I am way too generous on the time scale.

    2. @kong1967 The way things are swirling faster and faster, I think that it’ll happen within out lifetime.

      1. @dr-strangelove You’re probably right. Since Obama got elected it has fallen into a downward spiral that’s picking up speed.

      1. @ryan-o My son is 30. He’s had a few kooky ideas in the past, but he is now a big 2A guy, so he’s on the right track.

        1. I had many kooky ideas back in the day. Age brought wisdom. Wisdom allowed me to think those idiotic ideas through to their logical conclusion. The conclusion was always dismal.

      2. @ryan-o Me too. My daughter will be 28 next month, but who knows how bad it’s going to be by the time she gets my age.

        I think this PC movement is going to obliterate free speech. We don’t need Saddam to cut off our tongues for control when PC and society will ostracize you and shut you up all the same….and it won’t be in protection of conservative values.

    3. @kong1967 I don’t agree on your 50 year figure. At the rate they’re going they will either succeed in 10 years or they will implode. At this point, I think it could go either way. It all depends on what the sleepy middle does.

      1. @nc-checks-and-balances I don’t have a problem whatsoever with the difference in opinion. I was just throwing out a number because I really don’t have a clue how long it will take. It will be totally awesome if the leftist agendas implode within ten years!! We are way overdue for the pendulum to swing back our way. I’d love to see FB implode!!

  12. Omar’s qualification for office? Her head scarf. She’s arrogant, condescending and nasty. Yeah, she’s a nasty bitch who’s not as smart as she thinks she is. btw, this is obvious to all who read here but the government is not filled with the best and brightest. It’s filled with egotistical mediocres [at best] and not much is expected of the rank-and-file nor do the rank-and-file care to give its best.

  13. I’m with her, we should prohibit guns from Islamic armies and Islamic movements — knives, swords and axes too. That will reduce gun deaths around the world.

  14. Democrats do not care that they are spewing lies.

    Their modus operandi, their governing philosophy is that the people listening to them are stupid, the people listening to them are lazy, the people listening to them will not investigate for themselves.

    Their modus operandi, their governing philosophy is that if they and their MSM sycophants repeat their false propaganda often enough the facts won’t matter because their stupid, lazy supporters will believe and, more importantly, repeat their lies until it becomes ingrained as a fact.

    It’s actually. scarily brilliant especially because the stupid and lazy keep falling for it.

    There is no counter argument against willful, lazy ignorance.

  15. No stats on death from knifing and being crashed into by vehicles while on a sidewalk? What about being beheaded or burned alive in a cage? Nothing?

  16. Muslims are suppose to lie per the Koran 109 times it also states kill the infidels ah… us!!!

  17. Abortion violence statistics:

    How many people die from abortion-related violence worldwide?

    More than 120,000 people (i.e. human beings) die every day from abortion violence.

    But Ilhan Omar and her fellow Democrats like abortion, so no problem.

    Any other questions? Allahu akbar and Have a nice day.

  18. I’m sorry, I have railed against this imbecile until I’m blue in the face. Today, is a nice Saturday morning. Going to save her for Monday.

  19. What are the statistics of people filling fraudulent joint tax returns with someone who is not their spouse?

  20. Let’s see now, 500 a day? That would amount to about 180,000 a year. Good job, Omar. Maybe you need to take a math course so you can get your GED.

  21. Wait wait wait – you’re including those committed worldwide? So, like, when your Islamic fundamentalists brotherhusbands gun down villages and murder Jews and Christians wherever they can find them…. you’re against that? Since when?

  26. Keep talking rag top hear that ca-ching ? The sound of the register finalizing another gun sale.

  27. I-Ham Omar is such a lying sack of BS that the only time I ever read anything she says is here on TRS or on FoxNews.com, or on OAN.com or on Townhall.com, etc.

  28. How many die of natural causes each day? I bet it’s way more than 500… so, I call on this nation to pass a law banning nature!

    1. How many die each day from taking a prescribed medication, taken exactly the way it was prescribed to be taken. About 5 years ago, the number per year was at/about 350,000, and that is only what was reported. Most are not. So that is, at minimum, just shy of 1000 deaths per day from taking medication as prescribed by doctors. Meanwhile, of the numbers of gun deaths each day, how many of those were good people who killed evil people in self-defense, I wonder? Liberals never apply context to anything they say, which renders their stats irrelevant at best and dangerous for most who believe them.

  29. As if she’s not in enough trouble already for her taxes Omar continues to lie and continues to be shown as a liar.

  30. And to think this “Jezebel” continues to sprout this garbage and keeps in a position of power. SMH

    Dumbest, most evil and Leftist morons ever in office imo. ONE TERM AND DONE!!!

  39. How many are from war and civil unrest in other countries? How many are because of her people?

  40. This crap is going to continue until we eliminate the problem in different phases 1) take out the media, go after their advertisers. 2) clean house in judges. 3) shut off border, militarize the border and install wall.

        1. @ryan-o Same with my daughter. She has never involved herself in politics and doesn’t consider herself associated with either party, but her actions and her reactions to things clearly show she’s a conservative and just doesn’t know it.

          1. I know you raised your daughter with sense, Kong. Kinda knowing you all these years, I’m not surprised your daughter turned out so well. You should be proud.

            1. @ryan-o I am (aside from wishing she’d pay attention to politics) , and I’m sure everything you said applies to you and your son and daughter as well.

        2. I had many kooky ideas back in the day. Age brought wisdom. Wisdom allowed me to think those idiotic ideas through to their logical conclusion. The conclusion was always dismal.

          1. I, of course, had ABSOLUTELY NO kooky ideas in my youth. 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

    1. @kong1967 I don’t agree on your 50 year figure. At the rate they’re going they will either succeed in 10 years or they will implode. At this point, I think it could go either way. It all depends on what the sleepy middle does.

It will be totally awesome if the leftist agendas implode within ten years!! We are way overdue for the pendulum to swing back our way. I’d love to see FB implode!!

        1. @kong1967 I wasn’t trying to argue with you, it’s just that the 50 year number threw me because 50 years ain’t what it used to be. The Left is no longer patient like it once was. It’s like they see “victory” (whatever that it is, because nothing is ever enough for them) so close now they can almost grab it.

          But this is a double edged sword. Because as their mask falls, regular people are starting to wake up to this and think “what’s happening here?”

          Last year two very liberal people who are close to me “confided” that they were uncomfortable with having to pretend to accept a transgender person as “normal” – one in their workplace and another in an extended family setting.

          Another VERY liberal coworker was shocked and appalled when I told her about the newly passed NY State law last January legalizing abortion through the ninth month. She hadn’t heard of it yet, and hadn’t had a chance to get “brainwashed” by her influencers. So her natural gut reaction was disgust.

          Most people aren’t radical and crazy. But they can be easily influenced. But not forever. So I have hope.

          1. @nc-checks-and-balances I didn’t think you were trying to argue with me. We both totally agree on the path we’re headed and it’s anyone’s guess how long it will take. Considering the speed it’s going right now I’d say I was very generous on the length of time and I acknowledge that.

            As for your disgusted liberal associates and/or friends….that’s the problem. We can see it with every street interview conducted. They dish out talking points that have been fed to them. Trump is racist. The police are targeting blacks. Trump is anti-immigrant. Trump is imprisoning children. Bla bla bla. Yet when asked for details or if they are given a reality check they don’t have a freaking clue what’s really going on.

    2. @kong1967 The way things are swirling faster and faster, I think that it’ll happen within out lifetime.

      1. @dr-strangelove You’re probably right. Since Obama got elected it has fallen into a downward spiral that’s picking up speed.

  43. It’s amazing how many times this repulsive POS congress-critter manages to make headlines. Usually, mostly not in a good way. And yet when she is proven wrong, or antisemitic time after time – it’s because we’re racist.

    I was raised to care about the content of someone’s character – not the color of their skin or their gender. We are supposed to listen to this POS female on two counts – she’s black and she’s a woman. I don’t care about either of those things – for good or bad. I care that the content of her character shows that it’s missing.

    She’s a conscienceless hater, a liar and an ungrateful wretch who should be on her knees thanking the country that took her in from the hellhole of Somalia from whence she came.

    No matter her color or her gender – she’s just trash. 😡

    1. @kenoshamarge It’s not surprising, she comes from a backward, violent country that can’t even govern itself. Somalia makes Afghanistan look modern in comparison.

      1. Ain’t no body stopping her from going back and trying to help her country of birth. Instead she does nothing but complain about the country that took her in. Like I said, she’s trash.

    2. @kenoshamarge You forgot one count, Marge, she’s also a Muslim. That’s another protected class.

      1. That she is. At least to the PC folks. When you make an a$$ of yourself as this newbie congress-critter does the whole world has a right to point out the error stupidity of her ways and mouth.

  44. I-Ham Omar is such a lying sack of BS that the only time I ever read anything she says is here on TRS or on FoxNews.com, or on OAN.com or on Townhall.com, etc.

  45. And to think this “Jezebel” continues to sprout this garbage and keeps in a position of power. SMH

  46. It’s nice to see that Omar, AOC and Tlaib all took their “stupid pills” before being sworn in.

    Dumbest, most evil and Leftist morons ever in office imo. ONE TERM AND DONE!!!

  47. How many are from war and civil unrest in other countries? How many are because of her people?
