The far-left freshmen of the House of Representatives seem to have a propensity for making it onto the cover of magazines.
They’ve been featured from Rolling Stone to TIME magazine which recently gave Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) referring to her as “The Phenom.”
Rep. Ilhan Omar was one of the freshmen highlighted on the Rolling Stone cover. This despite the controversy over her anti-Semitic remarks.
And now she’s just made another cover – Vogue Arabia.
Vogue Arabia is the Middle East edition of Vogue magazine and goes to several Middle Eastern countries. Vogue apparently wasn’t deterred in putting her on the cover despite her controversial anti-Semitic comments.
Omar tweeted a link to the story with the cover photo of her in her hijab, noting, “To me, the hijab means power, liberation, beauty, and resistance.”
The problem of course is that for many women who are forced to wear the hijab, like the women of Iran, that’s not what it means for them. It means if they don’t wear it, they will be arrested.
One has the freedom and privilege of wearing a hijab if one wants, or not, in the United States. Not so in some other places.
