Democrats Turn On Ilhan Omar After She Targets Pro-Israel Group AIPAC

Excerpt:

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., was condemned Sunday by fellow Democrats after she accused a pro-Israel lobbying group of paying lawmakers in exchange for influence.

The latest controversy engulfing the freshman lawmaker centered on tweets she sent reacting to journalist Glenn Greenwald criticizing House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., for threatening punishment against Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., over their criticisms of Israel.

"It's all about the Benjamins, baby," Omar said in one tweet, quoting a lyric from the 1997 song by rap artist Puff Daddy.

*snip*

In a second tweet, Ilhan responded to Batya Ungar-Sargon, the opinion editor of the Forward newspaper, who said, "Would love to know who @IlhanMN thinks is paying American politicians to be pro-Israel, though I think I can guess. Bad form, Congresswoman. That's the second anti-Semitic trope you've tweeted."

Quote

"AIPAC!", Ilhan exclaimed, referring to the American-Israel Political Action Committee, a prominent pro-Israel lobby.

AIPAC! https://t.co/UdzaFUEfrh

A flurry of Democrats expressed outrage at Omar. Many said they took umbrage at the suggestion that pro-Israel lawmakers were motivated by "money alone."

*snip*

Chelsea Clinton, daughter to former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, also chimed in, reacting to a follow-up tweet from Ungar-Sargon, who had said, "Please learn how to talk about Jews in a non-anti-Semitic way. Sincerely, American Jews."

"Co-signed as an American. We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism," Clinton said.

In a subsequent tweet exchange, Clinton and Omar agreed they should talk in the near future to discuss what had transpired.

👋🏽 Chelsea - I would be happy to talk. We must call out smears from the GOP and their allies. And I believe we can do that without criticizing people for their faith.

I look forward to building an inclusive movement for justice with you. 💪🏽 https://t.co/EGA9NQfBCi

Chelsea really is dumb as a box of rocks, isn't she? :P

Bless her heart! But I have "liked" a few of her tweets, in which she was telling people to lay off the children of politicians (yes, including Republicans).

Ilhan Omar looks to be the kind of person where if you start talking to her with “I think...” that’s as far as you get before she lectures you about why you can’t be allowed to have that (or really any) opinion.

She thinks herself superior to all while she plays the role of the wronged party.

Omar has the same problem as Northam and AOC, she keeps speaking what the progressives are really thinking. That kind of transparency will cause the Democrats to lose elections.

That's the kind of problem of which we could use much more. :lol:

Does anybody here think the United Nations is a wonderful example of what we could be if we just give "diversity" a chance?

I'm thinking more and more that a successful anything can't be all things to all people.

On the MSN homepage there as a blurb about her now 'retracting' her anti-Semitic tweet...

I guess being challenged by a Clinton can be as frightening as being glared at by Erza, hmm?

Besides, as capitalism proves, competition is good for people.
