You’ve probably heard the name Rep. Ilhan Omar.
She made headlines recently when she vowed to “impeach the mother—-er,” referring to President Trump.
She upped the ante this week attacking Jews in some vile anti-semitic Tweets.
After being called out, she doubled down, making clear her comments were not misinterpreted or taken out of context.
The GOP made clear it would not tolerate such anti-Semitic, racist hate speech:
Here are two of the Tweets:
Swift condemnation of Rep. Omar came from ALL SIDES online, including even Chelsea Clinton and Meghan McCain and fellow Muslims (but not yet Pelosi or Schumer).
Take a look:
The Daily Mail had more:
Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who is one of two Muslim women elected to Congress, came under fire from Republicans and pro-Israel supporters for a Twitter post that some say advances anti-Semitic tropes about Jews and money.
'It's all about the Benjamins,' she wrote in reaction to a journalist's tweet remarking that it was 'stunning' how much time US leaders devote to defending Israel 'even if it means attacking free speech rights of Americans.''
Clinton responded that she was 'trafficking in anti-Semitism' by insinuating that members of Congress were being paid money - presumably by wealthy Jews - to maintain support for Israel.
And from Fox News:
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., sparked backlash Sunday evening from members of both parties -- including former first daughter Chelsea Clinton -- after she accused a prominent lobbying group of paying members of Congress to support Israel.
Omar, who became the first Somali-American woman elected to Congress in November, responded to a Twitter post by journalist Glenn Greenwald criticizing House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., for threatening to take action against Omar and another freshman lawmaker, Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., over allegedly anti-Semitic remarks.
"There’s situations in our conference where a member does something that is wrong — I think you’ve seen from my own actions that I take action about it," McCarthy told reporters Friday, making an apparent reference to Republican congressman Steve King of Iowa. "I think when they stay silent, they are just as guilty ... I think this will not be the end of this, and if they do not take action then I think you will see action from myself. It’s unacceptable in this country, especially when you sit back and think about and listen to what this country went through in World War II."
