Ilhan Omar – the Muslim Democrat House representative who has herself been accused of Anti-Semitism, sympathizing with terrorists, and unpatriotism – just flipped the claim, to allege that it’s really the Republican Party guilty of “hateful, sinful rhetoric.”
In an interview with Joy Reid, Omar claimed,
“I mean hate, sinful rhetoric is very dangerous and it is becoming synonymous with the Republican Party. They have refused to condemn and distance themselves from members within their party that have threatened my life and the lives of others, that have caused the deaths of people in this country who follow their message and have put their names, the names of our president and many of the Republican leaders in their manifestos as they have taken innocent lives.”

Breitbarthas more on Omar's accusation against Republicans:
Host Joy Reid asked, “We’re also in this moment, and you faced it even with your opponent, having to be banned on Twitter for the threatening things that she has said about you. You have faced the torrent of incoming hatred that’s been spewed out by this president. How do you process that as somebody who is a political leader who has pushed forward in the front? There’s a new version of the squad. They want to make a right-wing version of it. All white women that were on Fox the other day. There’s a brand around you that’s made you a target even in your re-election. We just had members of the Navy during the Army-Navy football game flashing what looked like the white power sign. How do you process that as somebody who is an elected official, and how do your constituents process it?”
Omar said, “I mean hate, sinful rhetoric is very dangerous and it is becoming synonymous with the Republican Party. They have refused to condemn and distance themselves from members within their party that have threatened my life and the lives of others, that have caused the deaths of people in this country who follow their message and have put their names, the names of our president and many of the Republican leaders in their manifestos as they have taken innocent lives.”
The Daily Wire did a great job pointing out just why some might say Omar's claim goes the other way around:
Omar has a documented history of being sympathetic to Islamic terrorists. Here are just a few examples:
- Advocated for leniency and “compassion” in the sentencing of men who were convicted of trying to join ISIS
- Called for a senior Muslim Brotherhood member to be released from jail in Egypt
- Voted against a bill that allowed insurance companies to deny life insurance payouts to terrorist’s families
Omar, who has been praised by former KKK grand wizard David Duke, is among the most anti-Semitic members of Congress.
The following is an excerpt on one example of Omar’s anti-Semitism from a Daily Wire report earlier this year:
In 2012, she tweeted: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
Responding to criticism over the tweet, Omar claimed she was “drawing attention to the apartheid Israeli regime.”
“The oft-repeated notion that Israel is an ‘apartheid’ nation is incorrect on multiple grounds,” The Daily Wire reported in October. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) refutes the notion that Israel is an “apartheid” nation:
Arab citizens of Israel enjoy the full range of civil and political rights, including the right to organize politically, the right to vote and the right to speak and publish freely. Israeli Arabs and other non-Jewish Israelis serve as members of Israel’s security forces, are elected to parliament and appointed to the country’s highest courts. They are afforded equal educational opportunities, and there are ongoing initiatives to further improve the economic standing of all of Israel’s minorities.
Townhall also commented:
Isn't it absolutely amazing to hear Ilhan Omar claim that other people are hate-filled or racist? She seems to forget that she has made numerous anti-Semitic tropes. In the past, she said people who support Israel have dual loyalty. She defended fellow Squad member Rashida Tlaib's (D-MI) comments about the Holocaust giving her a "calming feeling." She's admitted to having to "unlearn" her anti-Semitic ways.
Oh, and who could forget her "some people did something" on September 11th comments?
Omar has the audacity to say the Republican Party doesn't condone hate yet President Trump just signed an executive order protecting Jewish students from anti-Semitism on college campuses. She says the Republican Party doesn't condone hate yet who are the very people who called her and her fellow anti-Semitic squad members out? That's right. The Republican Party.
Before Omar starts firing at others she might want to do some inward reflecting. She's the last person who should be preaching to us about love, compassion and acceptance. She's anything but.
