Radical Congresswoman Ilhan Omar could not believe it.
And now Omar is in a world of trouble because of this career-ending betrayal.
It was only a matter of time before Democrats had their fill of Omar’s anti-Semitism.
Omar repeatedly parroted conspiracy theories that Jews are secretly manipulating American politics.
Her suggestion that Jewish money paid off elected officials to support Israel even earned a rebuke from Nancy Pelosi.
Omar always apologizes for hateful comments and claims bigotry does not rest in her heart.
But Americans dismissed those apologies as empty words.
That is because Omar’s actions prove her true intentions.
And now her act is wearing so thin that a prominent Democrat just called her on to the carpet.
Nita Lowey is the Chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee – which makes her one of the most powerful Democrats in Congress.
Lowey ripped Omar for her recent comments accusing Jews of being loyal to Israel at the expense of America.
“Gross islamophobic stereotypes – like those about @IlhanMN recently featured on posters in WVA – are offensive and have no place in political discourse. Anti-Semitic tropes that accuse Jews of dual loyalty are equally painful and must also be roundly condemned,” Lowey tweeted. “Lawmakers must be able to debate w/o prejudice or bigotry. I am saddened that Rep. Omar continues to mischaracterize support for Israel. I urge her to retract this statement and engage in further dialogue with the Jewish community on why these comments are so hurtful.”
Omar did not take those comments lightly.
The Minnesota Democrat fired back on Twitter.
“Our democracy is built on debate, Congresswoman! I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee. The people of the 5th elected me to serve their interest. I am sure we agree on that!” Omar responded. “I have not mischaracterized our relationship with Israel, I have questioned it and that has been clear from my end.”
Critics believe she sensed the danger she was in and wished to nip it in the bud.
Democrats are eventually going to reach a breaking point with Omar and her anti-Semitism.
She’s been taken to task by Pelosi and Lowey – two of the most powerful members of her own party – and eventually they will stop simply asking for another worthless apology.
Instead, they will demand her resignation or they will quietly recruit a primary challenger that will support their leftist agenda without all the bigoted baggage.
That will carry risks as well.
Omar is one of the most popular members of Congress with the Democrat Party base.
And her anti-Semitism is a reflection of a rising tide of prejudice against Israel on the left.
Rather than being an outlier – Omar is perfectly in sync with the emerging mainstream thought in the Democrat Party.
Omar may be a national embarrassment and a headache – and Democrat leaders may wish to be rid of her – but her star power with the left-wing grassroots could save her career.
