Omar Is Very Unhappy That Top Democrat Nadler Called Her Out for Anti-Semitism

By PoliZette Staff | August 24, 2019

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) (shown above left) is very unhappy, it seems, that top House Democrat Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) appeared to accuse her, along with President Donald Trump, of spreading anti-Semitic messages and statements.

It’s fascinating to many political onlookers that this elected official feels she can say just about anything about anyone — but then when people react to her comments and push back, she has problems with those reactions and pushback.

In a series of tweets on Friday, the liberal progressive lawmaker and Democratic squad member said it is “sickening to watch people make false equivalences between the open bigotry and hatred of this president and progressives.”

See one of her tweets right below.

Omar’s remarks came just a day after the House Judiciary chairman chided people of both parties – including Trump as well as both Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) – and suggested they have been promoting anti-Semitic language.

“The growing anti-Semitism in our political dialogue is repugnant,” Nadler tweeted.

He also wrote that Trump’s “comments about disloyalty are a vicious and dangerous anti-Semitic trope. And the Carlos Latuff cartoon forwarded by @RepRashida and @Ilhan can surely be read for its vile underlying message.”

Nadler was referring to actions of both Omar and Tlaib recently, in which they posted cartoon to their Instagram stories showing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu silencing Tlaib by covering her mouth — and Trump doing the same to Omar.

See just below:

In her Friday tweets, Omar said she had spoken out about the “rise in anti-Semitic violence” and that she defends “all religious minorities — at every turn.”

In reference to past allegations of her anti-Semitic remarks, she said she also is engaged in “accounting for and learning from my own mistakes to become a better ally.”

(What exactly does that mean?)

“But now is not the time for false equivalences,” Omar also declared. “Our president is attacking basic values of religious pluralism. You are either serious about protecting religious minorities of all stripes or you are not serious about any.”

Tlaib and Omar both have been in the white-hot spotlight over Israel’s decision to restrict their planned visit to that country.

The controversial congresswomen held a news conference this past Monday in protest of that decision.

They’ve been outspoken critics of Israel’s policies and even have expressed support for boycotts against Israel. They’re also known for their anti-Trump activism, as Fox News and others have pointed out.

  • Just more blah, blah, blah, blah, blah from Nagler and Omar. Their parents should have eaten their young.

  • It is not talking about a religion but a cult that preaches death to americans . Not my thoughts only but fact.She needs to exspunged from the US ,NOW

  • The squad (using a very small "s") must go. They are a clown-car filled with un-American haters. They must go. One term and out. Good riddance.

  • She is part and parcel of Islamists, and is doing what radical Islam wants her to do. It is a shell game by keeping our eyes on her while they are doing their dirty deeds over "there".

  • She trives on this, as do AOC and Talib et al. Publicity is publicity and they know how to garner it to their benefit.

  • The democrats want to put their socialism into having the government control the people. The muslim squad want Islamic rule of the people. Nether is for the people. Just the control of them.
