How many times have you heard Democrats accuse President Donald Trump or other Republicans as being racist and bigoted?
Republicans are called out for anything that may have a hint of being negative against any ethnic minority, women, other nationalities or lifestyles.
Democrats are even calling out some of their own in Virginia over alleged racism, that wasn’t racist at the time, and one for sexual assaults.
Yet, one a female Muslim Democrat freshman congresswoman is caught twice in the last month making anti-Semitic statements, there is NO outrage from fellow Democrats.
The Washington Examiner – For the second time in a month, Ilhan Omar says she unknowingly spread anti-Semitism – Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., claims that on Sunday when she sent out multiple tweets decrying the nefarious influence of Jewish money in American politics that she had no idea she was spreading anti-Semitism until she subsequently learned about the implications of her statements. That might have been a more compelling excuse if it weren’t for the fact that she used the exact same one last month, when explaining an earlier anti-Semitic tweet.
On Sunday night, the freshman Democrat, who was given a slot on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, reacted to a story about a plan from the desk of House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., to “take action” against the anti-Semitism being exhibited on a regular basis by Omar and her ” sister” freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., by tweeting out “It’s all about the Benjamins baby.” She then followed it up by saying she meant AIPAC, and then promoted several other supportive tweets furthering the same argument about Jewish donor influence.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., demanded that Omar apologize, and then Omar tweeted out a tortured statement in response…
Omar’s strong anti-Semitic views were well known before she was elected to Congress.
So, why would House Speaker Nancy Pelosi assign Omar to serve on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs?
Putting an anti-Semitic Muslim on this committee is like assigning a career pedophile to the staff of a daycare.
And yet, Omar appears to be skating free just be claiming to ignorant of what she did, which we all know is a lie.
