U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), a member of the far-left “Squad,” is uncharacteristically standing up for personal freedom that seems to be under attack from the corporate media and the authoritarian progressive cohort generally.

“I fail to see why any journalist felt the need to report on a shop owner making such a insignificant donation rather than to get them harassed. It’s unconscionable and journalists need to do better,” Omar wrote on Twitter.

The congresswoman was reacting to an article from the Ottawa Citizen about how threats prompted a cafe owner in that city to close her shop after her contribution to the peaceful Freedom Convoy was revealed when the GiveSendGo crowdfunding site was hacked. The owner now says she regrets making the donation.

Almost sounding like media critic in chief, i.e., ex-President Donald Trump, despite their vast ideological disagreements, Omar added this in follow-up tweets:

“I wish journalists wrote the articles they think they are writing. Sorry to say it, but your stories aren’t always balanced and often have a clear political bias. Calling it out isn’t harassment or journalist bashing. Everyone has a right to critique your story and it’s merits.”

“Ps. I fully read the article multiple times and I still don’t believe there was merit to the story as reported other than further harassment. You all are entitled to your opinions, but my opinion remains the same. These kinds of stories ruin people’s lives and are uncalled for,” she added.

“Members of the media on both sides of the U.S.-Canadian border have been sharing names and how much money they contributed to the truckers who’ve been protesting Canada’s vaccine mandate,” Fox News reported about the hack aftermath.

Although she is receiving criticism on social media from her usual left-wing cheering section, Omar is winning praise from people from the other side of the political aisle:

According to journalist and podcaster Saagar Enjeti, The Washington Post is getting in on the act by doxxing U.S. contributors to the Freedom Convoy whose names were included in the leaked data.

Enjeti claimed that the Jeff Bezos-owned news outlet “is contacting people whose donation info was leaked and who gave as little as 40 dollars to the truckers to ask them why they did so.”

“Twitter remains silent on the sharing of material from the hack of Christian crowdfunding website GiveSendGo across its platform, despite the far-left tech company’s strict rules against sharing hacked materials,”  Breitbart noted in an example of Silicon Valley’s apparent double-standard.

In a separate context, comedian and podcaster Adam Carolla recently quipped that the formerly rebellious, counter-culture left traditionally sought to stick it to The Man. Now, the left is The Man, he noted.

A Washington Post “investigative reporter” posted the updates, but the Post’s analysis of the hacked date is hardly going over well with left-wing pundit Glenn Greenwald and many others. Here is just a sample:

In the meantime, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of the Liberal Party dodged Conservative Party leader Candice Bergen’s question as to when he will submit his Emergency Act declaration to parliament for its approval let alone put forth a plan or to lift the COVID-19 restrictions.

Trudeau, who Fox News host Greg Gutfeld dubbed the Prime Miniature, instead robotically recited talking points.
