Ilhan Omar Tag

On Tuesday, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) spoke at the Muslim Caucus Education Collective 2019 Conference in Washington, D.C. about a wide variety of issues relevant to the Muslim community. During the question and answer part of the conference, Ani Zonneveld, who is the founder of Muslims for Progressive Values, asked Omar about the issue of female genital mutilation. Omar found the question, "appalling."

In 2018, Al Jazeera asked then-Congressional candidate Ilhan Omar about American fears of jihadist terrorism. She told the network that people should fear white men more than jihadist terrorism. Of course, she's not only racially profiling, she's adding the concept of race as a comparison to jihadist terrorism, which is not a "race." It's just fascinating that we're seeing this for the first time now.

When it comes to the well-documented anti-Semitism of Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) has been unafraid to push back against their actions and question their claims. For instance, Zeldin, who is Jewish, gave a blistering floor speech in March in which he slammed the sham "anti-hate" resolution passed by House Democrats in response to repeated instances involving Omar's use of anti-Semitic tropes. He said, in part:

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) reportedly violated federal tax law by jointly filing her tax returns in both 2014 and 2015 with a man to whom she was not legally married; indeed, at that time, she was legally married to another man.

If nothing else, one thing most people would agree on about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is that when she wants to get a message across, she doesn't waste any time. Such was the case earlier this week when, on Wednesday evening, the freshman Congresswoman tweeted out support for a newly-formed bipartisan caucus for black and Jewish House members . . . and then sided with anti-Semitic activist Linda Sarsour in a Twitter war over one of the caucus's Jewish founders just hours later.
