In the 2018 elections, Minnesota’s 5th congressional district, which encompasses all of Minneapolis and surrounding area, elected a hate-filled radical anti-Semitic Muslim to represent them in Congress.
Ilhan Omar’s strong anti-Semitic views (typical for a radical Muslim) were well known before she took her oath of office last month.
However, Omar wasted no time in making those views more well-known with two anti-Semitic tweets in the past month.
Because of her hatred for Jews and Israel and being so outspoken about it, President Trump called for her resignation, which has only outraged Omar, who is naturally trying to deflect Trump’s attack by throwing the accusations back on him.
The Hill – Omar fires back after Trump calls for her resignation: ‘You have trafficked in hate your whole life’ – Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on Wednesday fired back at President Trump over his call for her resignation, accusing the president of “trafficking” in hate and intolerance.
In a tweet, Omar accused the president of discrimination against “Jews, Muslims, Indigenous, immigrants, black people and more,” adding that she learned from “people impacted” by comments she made that many, including fellow Democrats, called anti-Semitic.
“Hi @realDonaldTrump- You have trafficked in hate your whole life—against Jews, Muslims, Indigenous, immigrants, black people and more. I learned from people impacted by my words. When will you?” she tweeted Wednesday morning.
Her comments come after the president called for her resignation or removal from the House Foreign Affairs Committee over her tweet questioning the influence of the Israel lobby, namely the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), in Washington D.C…
Earlier this week, when criticized for her second anti-Semitic tweet in a month, Omar tried to claim that she didn’t realize it was anti-Semitic or hateful towards Jews and Israel.
After knowing her history and reading her tweet, I have to say that her excuse is a blatant lie, as she knew full well what she tweeted.
If in fact she wasn’t aware of what she was tweeting, it proves that she is untrustworthy, irresponsible, insensitive and therefore has no place in Congress.
