Ilhan Omar just doubled down on her anti-Semitic comments and you won’t believe what she said this time
Rep. Ilhan Omar, is getting herself in big trouble with her anti-Semitic comments.
And it looks like things are about to get worse.
Omar doubled down on her anti-Semitic comments and what she said will make your jaw drop.
Nancy Pelosi gave Omar a slap on the wrist after the first wave of anti-Semitic comments.
Omar issued a non-apology and was able to keep her committee assignments.
But she just keeps digging.
At a town hall event in Washington, D.C. she played the victim card claiming she and fellow Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib were being unfairly attacked.
Omar constantly criticizes our closest ally in the Middle East, but when anyone criticizes her, she claims “Islamophobia.”
The Daily Caller reports:
Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar is facing more accusations of anti-Semitism after alleging that some have a dual loyalty between the U.S. and Israel, earlier this week.
“What I’m fearful of — because Rashida and I are Muslim — that a lot of our Jewish colleagues, a lot of our constituents, a lot of our allies, go to thinking that everything we say about Israel to be anti-Semitic because we are Muslim,” Omar said during a town hall in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, which was first reported by New York Magazine…
Omar concluded, “So for me, I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is okay to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”
The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), who was on the receiving end of previous criticism from Omar, tweeted, “The charge of dual loyalty not only raises the ominous specter of classic anti-Semitism, but it is also deeply insulting to the millions upon millions of patriotic Americans, Jewish and non-Jewish, who stand by our democratic ally, Israel.”
Pelosi has yet to give any statement regarding Omar’s latest comments.
Omar’s statements now represent a pattern of anti-Semitism.
Along with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she is becoming the face of the Democrat Party.
In fact, the two freshmen were recently featured alongside Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the cover of Rolling Stone.
Instead of being reprimanded for her anti-Semitic comments, she is being pushed to the forefront of the Democrat Party and given key committee assignments.
