As I mentioned earlier, even some Democrats are having a hard time ignoring Rep. Ilhan Omar’s blatant and repeated anti-Semitism after tweeting that Republicans only support Israel because they’ve been paid off.
According to Daily Wire:
On Sunday, after Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) displayed her blatant anti-Semitism by tweeting that GOP support for Israel was “all about the Benjamins,” and followed by accusing AIPAC of paying American politicians to support Israel, bipartisan condemnation of her remarks erupted, although no leading Democrats said a word about their colleague’s vile rhetoric.
Yes, really. And this woman is in our CONGRESS. It’s absolutely repulsive.
It all started when noted anti-Semite leftist Glenn Greenwald tweeted, “GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy threatens punishment for @IlhanMN and @RashidaTlaib over their criticisms of Israel. It’s stunning how much time US political leaders spend defending a foreign nation even if it means attacking free speech rights of Americans.”
Ilhan agreed… and added her own spin:
As I mentioned then, the reactions have been swift, but it’s not like we didn’t know who this woman was. The writing is all on the wall. Her Anti-Semitism is undeniable.
Fellow members of Congress are now calling for her removal from the Foreign Affairs Committee.
It’s ridiculous to suggest we’re taking bribes to support Israel. I went to the Middle East as a special operator. I know that Israel is a stabilizing force in the region. I agree with Chairwoman Cheny that Rep. Omar needs to be taken off the Foreign Affairs Cmte.@MorningsMaria pic.twitter.com/9g5MOMiPvF
