For months now, Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has been espousing racism and anti-Semitic language repeatedly, as she proclaimed that Israel was evil and was hypnotizing the world Then, she claimed that support for Israel was because of Jewish money, or as she put it “ALL ABOUT THE BENJAMINS”! However, most recently she pushed an anti-Semitism conspiracy theory that her Jewish colleagues were in support of Israel because they have a dual allegiance to the State of Israel! Now, Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) doubled down after already falling under criticisms by both Republicans and Democrats for accusing pro-Israel Americans of “allegiance to a foreign country, and on Friday, House Foreign Affairs Committee chair Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) announced that he was outraged for her…
“vile anti-Semitic slur,” demanding “that she retract them, apologize, and commit to making her case on policy issues without resorting to attacks that have no place in the Foreign Affairs Committee or the House of Representatives.”
However, Ilhan Omar responded to his comment by stating on an overseas trip to Africa, that…
“I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee.”
Omar has already made comments that Jewish Americans cannot be loyal to America, because they are Jewish, as her hate-speech garnered the attention and support of the White Supremacist and former KKK leader David Duke, who said she is the…
“most important member of the US Congress”

Omar didn’t stop there, as she said that “Israel has hypnotized the world”, and expressed that she has clearly been opposed to Israel from the beginning of her campaign for Congress!
Ultimately, Ilhan Omar has also said that she supports the “boycott, divestment, sanctions” (BDS) movement against Israel, which has long been labeled as anti-Semitic because it singles out Israel for punishment, and supports the Palestinians! However, interestingly, she hid that fact during her election. Meanwhile, she has espoused hate towards Jews, her desire to destroy Israel as she supports a Palestinian State, and her weekly words of anti-semitism clearly spell out her bias and loathing for the Jewish People and Israel!
Now, Muslim advocates are threatening anyone who denounces Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitism, as they claim criticism of her endangers her life, and apparently, the pressure is working! After all, Omar’s Muslim allies, like pro-Sharia law and pro-female genital mutilation proponent Linda Sarsour both marched on Washington and wrote…
“Nancy is a typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men. God forbid the men are upset — no worries, Nancy to the rescue to stroke their egos.”
After planning a resolution to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) racist comments, they announced that they were going to update it to include language that also condemned “Islamophobia.” In addition, reports now indicate that not only did they change it, but they allowed Ilhan Omar to re-write the legislation, even though it was supposed to originally condemn her hate-speech and anti-Semitic and racist speech!
On Thursday Muslims Advocates released this statement defending Ilhan Omar.
The Islamic group says any resolution denouncing anti-Semitism puts Ilhan Omar’s life in danger.
The following is a statement from Farhana Khera, executive director of Muslim Advocates, denouncing the anti-Muslim bigotry driving many of the attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar. Muslim Advocates also recently issued Running on Hate, a report documenting anti-Muslim political rhetoric:
“The attacks on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar are part of a coordinated, decades-long effort to paint American Muslims as inherently foreign, violent and deeply hostile to women, the LGBTQ community and Jews. Congresswoman Omar has been targeted with anti-Muslim smears long before she took the oath of office, including being accused of anti-Semitism and of supporting terrorism and the mutilation of women. After her election last fall, the attacks and scrutiny intensified. She has apologized in good faith for her comments and wants to listen, learn and build bridges of understanding. Yet, the attacks on her character, the unfair twisting of her words and the threats against her have continued and escalated. Now, she is facing credible death threats, widespread attacks in the media and a congressional resolution condemning her…
The message to American Muslims is clear: should you dare exercise your constitutional rights to vote, to speak your mind or hold office, you too will be subjected to this treatment: a distortion of your words and then official reprimand — a clear double standard.
Perhaps just as dangerously, if the House adopts this resolution, it will further embolden white nationalist anti-Semitism. Hate crimes targeting Jewish Americans are at disturbing, record levels. Let’s be clear: perpetrators of these heinous attacks are not inspired by Rep. Omar, but they are carrying out hate crimes like the attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue inspired by the racist, anti-Semitic language of President Trump and white nationalists.
The planned congressional resolution condemning Rep. Omar not only seeks to silence a Muslim member of Congress but also endangers her safety and the safety of all Americans who are targeted by white nationalists.”
Now, after the threats from the Muslim group, after the backlash from within Pelosi’s own party, the Democrat leadership caved and has now embraced hate, racism, and anti-Semitism within their ranks! The Democrat Party is no longer the Party of our forefathers, but it is the Party of evil! Ultimately, the Democrats may not allow their own to pay for their hate and vile words and actions in Congress today, but they will certainly pay for their renewed racism and evil deeds in the ballot boxes across our great American nation in 2020!
