WATCH: Rep. Ilhan Omar under fire again for anti-Semitic comments

Ilhan Omar is a flaming anti-Semite.

This isn’t up for debate. This is accurate. She has consistently and repeatedly used anti-semitic language and tropes to attack the Jewish people, and aligns herself with noted anti-Semites. Ilhan Omar is the very definition of a bigot.

She recently ignited a whole new controversy with her absolutely callous remarks about the 9/11 attacks.

Now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had the GALL to defend her using -get this – a poem about hate and bigotry during the Holocaust.

According to Fox News:

Omar most recently stirred up controversy when remarks she made last month, referring to the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something,” surfaced this week.

Ocasio-Cortez slammed President Donald Trump, who shared a grim video featuring Omar’s remarks alongside footage of the Twin Towers being attacked.

“Members of Congress have a duty to respond to the President’s explicit attack today,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Friday. “@IlhanMN’s life is in danger. For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, dangerous targeting of a member of Congress. We must speak out.”

This is unbelievable.

Where was this outrage at Omar’s anti-Semitism? Where is this outrage when she trashes our nation or defends the terrorists who want to destroy it?

She also shared an image of the words of “First they came … ,” the famous poem by German theologian Martin Niemöller that was inspired by the tragedies of the Holocaust. (The words are mounted on a wall at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington.)

The poem reads:

“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.

“Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.

“Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

“Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”


Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet sparked major backlash, with critics accusing her of trivializing the Holocaust and slamming her for doing so in defense of Omar, who has repeatedly fought off claims of anti-Semitism.

If there’s anything worse than a moron, it’s an evil moron. I used to think she was just too dumb to realize what she was saying – but truly believe she’s a legitimately bad person at this point.
