Ilhan Omar Backs Trucker Protest Supporter That Was Doxed By Media

( Far-left Democratic Representative for Minnesota Ilhan Omar made the strange decision to defend people who were doxed and harassed by journalists for donating to the Freedom Convoy truckers in Canada.

After the GiveSendGo database of donors to the Canadian protesters was leaked by a cyberhacker, people who gave as little as $40 to the truckers began receiving emails from journalists who asked them for comment about why they chose to donate to the protest.

Rep. Omar, who has supported vaccine mandates and COVID restrictions, saw what a clear violation this was and for once chose to support the side of reason.

On February 16, Omar wrote, “I fail to see why any journalist felt the need to report on a shop owner making such a [sic] insignificant donation rather than to get them harassed.”

“It’s unconscionable and journalists need to do better,” she wrote.

Maybe she realizes that this sets a precedent. If people can be persecuted for donating to a peaceful protest, then imagine what might happen if Black Lives Matter donors are exposed in the future? Especially given that Black Lives Matter and Antifa protesters have a tendency to shoot people, burn down buildings, and attack federal buildings…

It comes as the Canadian government invokes the Emergencies Act, granting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sweeping powers to punish protesters and get them off the streets. The Canadian Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland announced on Monday that she will freeze the bank accounts of protesters “without a court order” in part of an effort to stop the protests from continuing.

The details of people who donated to the protest are now available online, and journalists from left-wing newspapers like The Washington Post are contacting people listed on the database and asking them why they felt motivated to contribute to the campaign.

Is there anything worse than a journalist?
