Well done Minnesota for voting this hateful Muslim into office. Omar's true colors are starting to come out. Why should anyone be surprised with her anti-semitism? How long before she verbally attacks Christians? Freshman Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are not exactly shy about expressing their feelings toward Jews, which is forcing the Dims to shift into damage control. I love watching them squirm.

The Democrat candidates for the 2020 race, look like a total freak show, with many of them hauling a lot of baggage and now they have this drama to deal with. Now, a few of these "Progressive" Democrats are embarrassing their Party with their idiotic proposals, like "The Green New Deal" and their approval for Socialism, along with their anti-semitic statements. Their actions will likely get Trump reelected in 2020.


Muslim Congresswoman Accuses Jews of Bribing American Lawmakers, Sparks Bipartisan Outrage



"When someone uses hateful and offensive tropes and words against people of any faith, I will not be silent. Congresswoman Omar's statements are deeply hurtful to Jews, including myself. Implying that Americans support Israel because of money alone is offensive enough. But to go a step further and retweet someone declaring their pain at her sentiment is simply unacceptable."



Omar quickly responded and responded that Republicans were victimizing her over her remarks about Jews.

Republicans are "victimizing her?" Sounds like she's pulling that "victim" card out, just like Ocasio-Cortez, when they're caught lying or doing something "deplorable." Her own party is now slamming her, yet she professes that she's being smeared. Cry me a river.


House Democratic leaders on Monday roundly condemned Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., for statements slammed as anti-Semitic.



The statement from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders said: “We are and will always be strong supporters of Israel in Congress because we understand that our support is based on shared values and strategic interests. Legitimate criticism of Israel’s policies is protected by the values of free speech and democratic debate that the United States and Israel share. But Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive. We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments."



The statement came after other senior Democrats had weighed in, including the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee on which Omar sits.



The Anti-Defamation League, meanwhile, called on House leadership to take action in response to Omar's comments.

Hold on folks, the drama has just begun as we head towards the 2020 Presidential Election. Should be an interesting show.

I didn't see any anti-semitism.

Just more partisan identity politics and buzz words.

I don't agree with the vast majority of Omar's views, but in this case she certainly has a point.

The question is: how is it anti-Semitic to criticize an Israeli-American political group for engaging in political corruption?

What did she say about Jewish people or the Jewish faith in particular? Oh that's right, nothing. She was talking about the government of a sovereign nation. Simply because the nation is an ethnostate, doesn't exclude it from criticism nor does it have a free pass to use the construct of anti-Semitism to attack any and all said critcism.

Quite frankly, the world's waking up to the fact that anti-semitism is a weapon. Occasionally it's a weapon used against Jewish people. More often, its a weapon to smear anyone who's not on board with everything Israel does.

It's not the first time she's spouted anti-semitic language. She has made her hatred for Israel well-known. So far, no apology but Pelosi has spoken so she will come out with some weak apology and be forgiven.

There are strong calls to remove her from the Foreign Intel Committee as well. She shouldn't be in Congress and i hope she keeps running her mouth and gets removed from office.

Kudos to Pelosi for doing the right thing, for once.

After fooling the voters and being elected she changed her stance and showed her true colors on several issues. This is just one of them.

Why are the Dems attacking a A Black, women, Muslim refugee?

That's pretty immoral of them.

It's because she's not gay, right?

She did marry a relative, so you have to give her leftist points for that.

Nothing wrong with criticizing Israel. However, I think her history is what makes her criticism so suspect and why people are jumping on the antisemitism claims.

Democrats really have an issue because they've gone bat sh*t cray left and it is becoming obvious to all but the blind. A lot of these new congressmen/women are really saying what Democrats really believe out in the open and it is surprising a lot of people who may have been more moderate and not as politically astute or aware of true Democrat positions.

How did this
woman get on the foreign affairs committee? It's like the Dems made their committee assignments based on who would be the inappropriate person for that committee:

Adam Schiff chairs the House Intelligence committee, despite having repeatedly leaked info to the press (usually false into), amply demonstrating that you couldn't trust him to guard the Colonel's 11 herbs & spices, much less important national secrets.

Maxine Waters is typically ranked as the most corrupt person in Congress. So naturally she's now the head of the House Finance Committee.

Also on the finance committee is Alexandria Oscario-Cortez. Yeah, because we totally need the 12-year-old court jester to be involved in setting our national financial policies.

People need to stop apologizing for doing nothing wrong.

How on earth in America of all places can you not say "Yea, I don't like that we give so much support to Israel and let their agenda drive our politics".

What did she say that was anti-semitic? I see what people are saying she said, but what did she actually say? Interesting that the news report on the subject doesn't actually quote her, it only says that other people have called her out. Makes one question...

However, in the event that she actually was being anti-semitic (she did apologize, after all)...why is it wrong for Democrats to call her out on it?

The title of the OP says "Democrats starting to eat their own". Translation: Democrats call people out for being jerks, regardless of what side of the aisle they're on.

The fact that you're trying to spin that as a negative thing, is hilarious. "Look at these evil Dems, not being loyal to the party! Who calls out people in their own party for saying something negative!"
People who are upstanding citizens, that's who.

Let's say that she was being anti-semitic...please explain to me why it's a bad thing that the Democrats are "eating their own" for this. Please, what is your reasoning as to why it's a bad thing for Dems to reprimand her?

It's a serious question, because your title makes it seem like you think they shouldn't reprimand her...

While it is true that not all critics of Israel are anti-Semitic, all anti-Semitics are critical of Israel.

She hasn't made many friends and by acting this way as a complete newbie she's just going to lose her re-election, maybe. If she doesn't, she'll just be one of hundreds of members of Congress who vote but aren't significant. In her case, she'll even isolate herself and form opponents within her own party. She's rather cancerous in general to the party and the higher ups know this. Ocasio-Cortez is publicly her buddy because they're both minorities, progressive, women, and new but I'd even bet that she knows that Omar is slightly toxic or could be. Grossly unpopular nationally in every way. She might get some points for being "black" and a woman but that's it, yet gets many points deducted for being an outward, outspoken Muslim wearing it on her sleeve instead of keeping her religion on the backburner like the Christians, Jews, even Catholics in the Democratic party. They're not all atheists and hedonists who let their wives bathe in baby blood to keep a youthful appearance.
