    Arrow Dem Rep. Omar's Anti-Semitic Tweet Ignites Dem Backlash

    No idea why the Muslim reps are the darlings of democrats. Especially when they haven't hidden their anti-Israel stances, and of course (as with Mike Pence's wife) the religious affiliation is prejudiced against the homosexual community in its essence.

    Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., sparked backlash Sunday evening from members of both parties -- including former first daughter Chelsea Clinton -- after she accused a prominent lobbying group of paying members of Congress to support Israel.

    Omar, who became the first Somali-American woman elected to Congress in November, responded to a Twitter post by journalist Glenn Greenwald criticizing House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., for threatening to take action against Omar and another freshman lawmaker, Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., over allegedly anti-Semitic remarks.

    Truthfully exposing the pro-isreal lobby isn't anti-Semitism no matter how hard they try to claim otherwise.

    Our bedding of Israel is a real issue that deserves criticism

    I am not sure how what she said is even controversial.

    It's not a love affair with Islam. She's right though

    hi! jew here: what she said wasn't antisemitic. could she have worded it better? probably. anyways don't try and use antisemitism as a "gotcha" to justify your racism towards muslims, we have far more in common with them than with you christians

    How much Israeli money is going through the halls of power in our country? Why is it that my first amendment rights no longer completely cover BOYCOTT, DIVEST, SANCTION the Apartheid State? Forget Russia. The Israeli and Saudi money flowing through Washington dwarves Russia and China's meddling by a wide margin.

    Just let them go. Throw in AOC and her high school term paper, Pocahontas, and the rest of the libs and they will bury themselves again in 2020.
    Come election time the silent majority will come out again to make sure these nut jobs lose again.

    Well, Omar apologized maybe from the backlash, but probably because Comrade Pelosi made her. While her comments may have not been Anti-Semetic, they certainly are Anti-Israeli. Whose to say Tehran is not funneling her money in support or that she's a paid agent of Muslim extremists looking to destroy Israel?? However, you won't see an investigation like the Mueller Witch Hunt.

    As far as "apartheid states", there is no state that is more so than Iran, but Gibby won't point that out because he hates our allies in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv as well as the United States itself.

    The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

    Talking about concerns regarding the lobby is fine. Doing so under the context of talking about money, knowing what that is intended to mean is pretty close.

    Her apology and then subsequent tweet last night also didn't do her any favors. This new class is making a name for itself in all the wrong ways currently, but some of this is to be expected with a lot of people coming in with little to no political experience. You're going to have gaffes and mistakes, you just can't allow it to become a theme.

    The trouble with you Leftists is you don't apply the same rules to yourself as you do to your political opposition. You also see everything through a cloudy prism of political correctness.

    The idiot that thanked your post has done so for 20 years.

    please don't goysplain what was wrong with omar's tweet to me as if i'm not keenly aware of how antisemitism manifests, also she never specifically singled out any jewish congressional members she was talking about supporters of israel in general, the majority of which aren't even jewish. in fact, her comment was in response to something that kevin mccarthy said and he DEFINITELY isn't jewish and is an antisemite himself.

    also like, she took the criticism to heart and apologized like it's not as if she dressed up as a racist caricature in college or whatever the fuck the va govenor did that was definitely should-absolutely-step-down racist

    Re: Dem Rep. Omar's Anti-Semitic Tweet Ignites Dem Backlash

    I fail to see how what she said was anti-Semitic. She implied that certain specific people are taking lobbying money to support Israel. If it’s not true, then I could see some backlash for false accusations, but attacking specific people for their views on Israel isn’t anti-Semitism.

    But, of course, the article is from Fox News and if Fox News says any criticism of a pro Israel policy is anti-Semitic, their automatons will eat it up, especially if it makes a female Muslim Democrat look bad.

    And NOW our only president is calling for Omar to be booted off the House committee she's on, or even the House itself.

    My response: You FIRST, Mr. President. You OPENLY defended actual Nazis and white nationalists in Charlottesville. You refused to repudiate the support of the former KKK Grand Wizard in the last election. You openly embrace bigotry and racism on a daily basis. And you YOURSELF trafficked in anti-Jewish stereotypes(witness the 2016 election). So sit down and SHUT UP unless you're willing to do what you're demanding of others.
