Ilhan Omar was just annihilated by the last person she ever expected
The mainstream media loves Rep. Ilhan Omar.
She can say whatever horrible things she wants and the media will defend her.
But Ilhan Omar was just annihilated by the last person she ever expected.
Rep. Ilhan Omar has been losing her mind since getting news that she is banned from visiting the Jewish state of Israel.
Israeli officials made clear that her denial is based on her support for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which calls on businesses to boycott Israel.
The goal of the movement is to destroy Israel by cutting off trade, making it impossible for them to fund their ever-rising defense costs.
Omar is a major supporter of this movement, and gains sympathy from many in the Left over it.
But one person on the Left who isn’t buying the scheme is Bill Maher, the host of HBO’s “Real Time.”
He points out that those who support the movement “slept through history class,” and that the person who co-founded the movement doesn’t even want a Jewish state to exist.
“It’s a bulls**t purity test. BDS is a bulls**t purity test by people who want to appear woke but actually slept through history class,” Maher said. “It’s predicated on this notion — I think it’s very shallow thinking — that the Jews in Israel are mostly white and the Palestinians are browner, so they must be innocent and correct, and the Jews must be wrong.”
“As if the occupation came right out of the blue, that this completely peaceful people found themselves occupied,” Maher continued. “Forget about the intifadas and the suicide bombings and the rockets and how many wars.”
“Let me read Omar Barghouti, one of the co-founders of the movement,” Maher added. “His quote: ‘No rational Palestinian … would ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine.’ So that’s where that comes from, this movement, someone who doesn’t even want a Jewish state at all. Somehow this side never gets presented in the American media. It’s very odd.”
In response, Ilhan Omar — along with her pal Rashida Tlaib — lost her mind.
They are encouraging a boycott of the show.
And in response, Jewish groups are firing back at the two Congresswomen.
