Omar became the subject to bipartisan criticism after suggesting on twitter than politicians support of Israel is “all about the money” and making tweets that perpetuate Jewish stereotypes.  In a particularly offensive tweet she said,  “Israel has hypnotized the world may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

After meeting with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Omar apologized via twitter but later retweeted a statement from an ally that supported her original tweets, lamented her backing down, and denounced Pelosi.

  1. That’s fine, said at 12:00 pm on February 13th, 2019:

    but I still cannot understand how a majority of Jewish voters continue to vote/be Democrat: fact: the most unabashedly Anti- Semitic among us are Democrats. And in this recent case, her so- called apology is not only lame and insufficient, it is another example of the disengenuousness and hypocrisy of the Dems: she’s a woman and a minority, so she’ll get to stay on Foreign Relations, and face no backlash. What have you done to us, Minnesota?Another disgrace!

    After she is ousted from Congress, I’m envisioning her taking a similar path as another ex-pol from the land of 10,000 lakes. Her own reality show, howling about conspiracies with Alex Jones, living off the grid. Get your popcorn ready.

    that the GOP can recruit someone who won’t back out, who can beat her..(our system is/ was supposed to be based on running good campaigns to win on experience and ideas- one wonders if that isn’t almost over, these days..) Or, better yet, let her oust herself from her own party with her nastiness, prejudices, and thin knowledge: her party should replace her next year, so we are done with her destructive behaviors…
