Rep Omar has a penchant for making anti-American and anti-Semitic statements. Her dismissive comments about 911 are clearly disrespectful to all the Americans murdered that day.
“Some people did something” is what she said. She could have defused the controversy by apologizing and expressing some words of empathy for the American victims of Radical Islamist terrorism.
She also attacked supporters of our alliance with Israel by using the anti-Semitic trope: “It’s all about the Benjamins”. She also can’t bring herself to criticize Louis Farrakhan for calling Jews termites. David Duke of KKK fame loves her.
I don’t want her to be shot or hurt in any way. I want her politics to be soundly rejected by the Democratic Party, the voters of Minnesota, and the community of Somali Americans. Please stop idealizing her and whitewashing her hatred of America and her prejudice against Jews.
