Republican Ilhan Omar Challenger Lacy Lee Johnson Defends Israel Ban, Says Omar “Made Herself An Enemy” Of Israel


Lacy Lee Johnson is a proud patriotic Republican running against Ilhan Omar in hopes of replacing her seat in the House of Representatives.

Following Israel’s decision to barr Omar and Rashida Tlaib from visiting the country over their anti-Israel pro-Palestine sentiment, Johnson spoke out to defend Israel’s call.

In an appearance on Fox & Friends, Johnson declared,

“The government of Israel was well within its rights to deny her and its expected that they would do that. Ms. Omar has openly called for the boycott, divestment, and sanction of Israel and, as such, she has basically made herself an enemy of that nation.”

Here's more on what Johnson had to say about Israel's ban on Omar from Fox News:

Lacy Lee Johnson, a Republican who's running to unseat Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., defended Israel's decision to reject entry for the progressive congresswoman, arguing that she made herself the nation's enemy by backing boycotts.

"The government of Israel was well within its rights to deny her and its expected that they would do that," Johnson told "Fox & Friends" on Saturday. "Ms. Omar has openly called for the boycott, divestment, and sanction of Israel and, as such, she has basically made herself an enemy of that nation."

He added that no country he could think of would let someone like that enter. Johnson also pointed to Omar's itinerary which he said was about delegitimizing Israel and pushing the BDS movement.

Omar, Johnson alleged, was trying to become an "international celebrity" rather than focusing on the people in her district who were dealing with crime and poverty.
