One Democrat said two words about Ilhan Omar that changed her life forever
Ilhan Omar cannot escape controversy.
The freshman Democrat’s many scandals are reaching a breaking point.
And one Democrat said two words about Omar that could change her life forever.
Max Rose is a Jewish Democrat that represents a New York congressional district.
During a constituent town hall, Rose told attendees that he was “horrified” and “sad” when he heard Omar’s repeated anti-Semitic remarks.
The Hill reports:
A freshman House Democrat apologized to his Jewish constituents during a district town hall this week for comments Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) made questioning U.S.-Israel policy that critics considered anti-Semitic.
Rep. Max Rose (D-N.Y.), who is Jewish, said he was “horrified” and “sad” when Omar recently said pro-Israel groups “push for allegiance to a foreign country,” a comment many Jewish lawmakers said invoked the myth of dual loyalty to the United States and Israel.
“As a young congressman, I’ve got to tell you I’m sorry,” Rose told a crowd organized by the Council of Jewish Organizations of Staten Island, according to Jewish Insider.
“You sent me to Congress to take responsibility. You sent me to Congress to have your back,” he continued. “And I failed you. Because I know that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s comments really caused you all a lot of pain by bringing up anti-Semitic tropes.”
Democrats do not usually turn on one another.
Liberals run circles around establishment Republicans because liberals are united in purpose to grow government, confiscate guns, expand abortion on demand, and throw open the borders.
This gives them the upper hand against weak-kneed Republicans.
But Democrats are nervous about the 2020 election.
They fear any mistake could blow their chances of winning the election.
And it looks like some Democrats wish to eliminate the headache Ilhan Omar causes.
