The Ilhan Omar Thread

Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar ripped former President Barack Obama in an interview published Friday, belittling his "pretty face" and saying his agenda of hope and change was an illusion. It's time she gets her own sorta Hits & Misses thread. This could be fun.

The claim that it’s hard to have a discussion about Israel is really disconnected from reality. Israel has been subject to something like half of all condemnatory UN resolutions since the founding of that body, and a roughly equal (if not greater) proportion of all foreign policy protest and activism in this country.

And all this during a period of human history when something like 20 million people have been killed in wars, conflicts, and genocides of various stripes, including over a million in other Middle Eastern conflicts. The total loss on both sides of the Israeli-Arab conflict is less than 120,000, for reference.

Update - Former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan David Duke called Omar “the most important members” in Congress. Yes, Omar has received the endorsement of a white nationalist most likely due to her hatred of Israel and Jews. That’s the far left.

Note anything a tad odd after this Duke endorsement. There was zero media coverage, whereas Trump is besieged whenever these clowns talk about him.

Also, it would appear as if CNN has zero stories about Duke and Omar. Want to guess how many are about Trump and Duke on the site?

https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/sta...-omar-n2542825

https://twitter.com/LevineJonathan/s...-omar-n2542825

This pretty much cancels out the shoddy narrative that Trump is somehow a white nationalist because some cuckoo said a nice thing about him. The same standard does apply. Of course, Omar isn’t a member or supporter of the KKK, but these are their rules, folks. They get away with murder.

Jewish person here. She invoked the the "dual loyalty" charge in reference to pro-Israel politicians, lobbyists and supporters. It’s a pretty common charge in relation to supporters of many countries in American politics. But what makes it bad is that 1), The Dual Loyalty charge is one that has been used for literally thousands of years to justify the persecution and murder of Jews, and 2) Most American Jews support Israel, and most of us see the use of that canard in reference to us as a very dangerous thing.

I mentioned this in my thread about Watching the Slow Implosion of the Left in the House Is Beautiful...

Omar and AOC are like Christmas presents to Trump. They are pretty much guaranteeing Trump 2020 is a win, for better or worse.

Then there is also this one:

House Majority Whip James Clyburn essentially just told everyone that Omar’s experience is much more personal than those who had relatives who had survived the Holocaust, and as such, we can't judge her because she had it tougher than the Jews did.

https://thehill.com/homenews/house/4...e-in-dem-unity

Then there is also Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) has joined this legion of idiots defending Omar’s anti-Semitic remarks, saying, “she comes from a different culture.” Oh, so that makes it okay, then?

https://freebeacon.com/politics/scha...erent-culture/

Then finally, we have Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) who says that the calls to have Omar removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee are grounded in Islamophobia.

https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/sta...nts-i-n2542748

Nope. It’s because their views are total garbage, and these talking points are definitely rooted in anti-Semitism.

Tmaster might go into mourning if he reads her comments about Obama.

Pelosi and Schumer know they've got serious problems. I mean serious problems.

New Kids lobbing explosives at their voting blocks. I mean, they're pissing a LOT of Democrats off. Anyone that says otherwise is tone deaf.
Having a shite ton of Twitter followers does not equate to magic beans.

I say go even dumber than dumb. They should call out everyone who owns a pet(s).

I thought Rep. Omar's comments and tweets were only directed at Israel or politicians that blindly agreed with any other nation's policies without questioning when another country's administration may have made some suspect decisions.

Am I wrong? Did she speak out against Jadaism?

#internationalwomensday
She has made multiple anti-Semitic comments, aimed directly at the Jewish population, irrespective of the country of Israel.

She is a racist and a bigot, period.

No one is questioning the right of members of Congress and others to criticize Israeli policies. But Omar is crossing a line that should not be crossed in political discourse. Her remarks are not anti-Israel; they are anti-Semitic.

Whether consciously or not, Representative Omar is repeating some of the ugliest stereotypes about Jews—tropes that have been unleashed by anti-Semites throughout history. She is casting Jewish Americans as the other, suggesting a dual loyalty that calls our devotion to America into question.

Quote from former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel:

Maybe I’m sensitive to this charge of dual allegiance because it’s been wielded against me in some of my political campaigns. I’ve been accused of actually being a citizen of Israel. (That’s not true, although my father was an Israeli immigrant to the United States.) In 2002, well before Donald Trump and other “birthers” questioned Barack Obama’s citizenship, I had to produce my U.S. birth certificate in my first run for Congress to disprove false assertions about my background and loyalties.

But it’s not just me who’s been subject to questions of dual loyalty. For centuries, this trope has been aimed at Jews in countries around the world. In embracing it, Omar is associating herself with calamities from the Spanish Inquisition to the Russian pogroms to the Holocaust. That’s not historical company that any American should want to keep.

One doesn’t have to be Jewish to recognize the deep and abiding relationship between the United States and Israel. Yes, there might be serious problems with Israel’s democracy—just as we’re currently experiencing our own. But Israel shares fundamental values with the United States that most of its neighbors have never embraced.

In Israel, women can vote and serve in the armed forces. So can members of the LGBTQ community. Its Arab citizens can vote, form political parties, and serve in the Israeli Parliament. And Israeli women can drive—just as badly as the rest of the population.
