Danielle Stella, a candidate hoping to challenge Omar in the 2020 election for her Minnesota seat, tweeted earlier this week, “If it is proven @IlhanMN passed sensitive info to Iran, she should be tried for #treason and hanged.”
Omar replied to Stella’s statements on Twitter, saying that the Republican candidate’s latest statement only expands on dangerous political rhetoric that can lead to threats and harm.
A spokesperson for Twitter stated on Saturday that Stella was permanently banned from the platform but did not state why.
On Friday, Twitter permanently banned the Republican opponent of Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar after accusing the Minnesota congresswoman of treason and posting on the platform to hang Omar.
Danielle Stella, a candidate hoping to challenge Omar in the 2020 election for her Minnesota seat, tweeted earlier this week, “If it is proven @IlhanMN passed sensitive info to Iran, she should be tried for #treason and hanged.”
The post that followed included a crude drawing of a gallow-hanging body with a reference to a right-wing website on her belief that Omar should be hanged if a plot that Omar provided Qatar and Iran with sensitive intelligence was valid.
Stella defended herself on Facebook after receiving considerable backlash for the posts She claimed not to have threatened Omar.
Stella has posted on Facebook, “Breathe, think this through, logically. To clarify, I said, ‘If it is proven ____ passed sensitive info to Iran, she should be tried for #treason and hanged,’
On Twitter, Omar wrote. “This is the natural result of a political environment where anti-Muslim dogwhistles and dehumanization are normalized by an entire political party and its media outlets,”
“Violent rhetoric inevitably leads to violent threats, and ultimately, violent acts”, he added.
