Tucker Carlson lashed out at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she claimed, on MSNBC that Fox News has been spouting “hateful rhetoric” about Afghan refugees. Carlson said Omar herself is a bad example of how poorly America takes in refugees.
“I know what some of these people are worried about,” Omar said of the GOP earlier this week. “It’s that they’re worried that refugees like myself, when they come to this country, will outshine them. But that is just their own failure and their inability to find success in the ways in which refugees have found success in this country.”
“So, the obvious response to that is to attack poor Ilhan Omar,” Carlson said after replaying Omar’s statement. “But we’re not going to do that. The truth is, this is our fault. She is our fault. Ilhan Omar is living proof that we are not very good at resettling refugees.”
According to Carlson, the Minnesota lawmaker was inundated with propaganda to hate America from Americans themselves. “She was saved from a refugee camp in Kenya as a child by the kindness and generosity of America,” Carlson said. “And yet she has grown to hate America and the people who live here. Where did she learn those attitudes? Well, of course, in college, our colleges. We taught her to hate our country. She became worse after she got here. We ought to pause before we do that again, to anyone, even if they’ve been translators.”
Currently, President Biden has reached out to neighboring countries to encourage them to accept more refugees. Plane loads are already on their way to the U.S.

Mental health crisis spikes among Afghan women after Taliban regained control two years ago
The women of Afghanistan are suffering a mental health crisis since the Taliban regained power two years ago. According to a joint report from three U.N. agencies released Tuesday, approximately 70% of women experience feelings of anxiety, isolation and depression.
The numbers continue to rise, as there has already been a significant jump between April and June of this year alone, with an increase from 57% the preceding quarter.
The report, conducted by U.N. Women, the International Organization for Migration and the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, interviewed women online, in-person and in group consultations as well as individual telesurveys.
592 Afghan women in 22 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces took part in the study. The Associated Press reports:
They have barred women from most areas of public life and work and banned girls from going to school beyond the sixth grade. They have prohibited Afghan women from working at local and non-governmental organizations. The ban was extended to employees of the United Nations in April.
Opportunities to study continued to shrink as community-based education by international organizations was banned and home-based schooling initiatives were regularly shut down by the de facto authorities — a term use by the U.N. for the Taliban government.
Afghanistan is the only country in the world with restrictions on female education and the rights of Afghan women and children are on the agenda of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
