Ilhan Omar is the most rabid anti-Semite in Congress.
And her extreme racist and anti-American rhetoric is blowing up the Democratic Party.
Now, Vice President Mike Pence just destroyed Omar in a way she never thought possible in just two words.
Ilhan Omar is perhaps the worst member of Congress today.
The Freshman Minnesota Democrat has joined Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as one of the three most radical members of Congress who were just elected in 2018. Each of them represents heavily Democratic districts.
But in Omar’s case, she isn’t famous for being an avowed socialist like Ocasio-Cortez, or for cursing the President of the United States in public by declaring she would like to “impeach the mother*****” like Tlaib.
Instead, she’s known for her constant anti-Semitic and anti-American attacks.
Omar has claimed Israel has “hypnotizing the world.”
She claimed that Jewish American’s aren’t really loyal to the United States.
She’s promised to support the BDS movement, which seeks to destroy Israel through economic sanctions.
And she claimed 9/11 was just a case of “some people” doing “something.”
Her endless stream of political gaffes are finally taking their toll however, as Democrats abandon her and her own comments are coming back to haunt her.
And now, Vice President Mike Pence is weighing in on Omar.
Breitbart reports, “During an interview that aired Friday on Fox News Channel’s ‘Fox & Friends,’ Vice President Mike Pence called for Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) ouster from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.”
“Look, Ilhan Omar has made statements, antisemitic comments, statements against our most cherished ally, Israel, that ought to be rejected by every American,” Pence said. “And frankly the fact that very recently she has been trying to blame the United States of America for the deprivation and poverty brought on by the dictatorship in Venezuela.”
Pence laid it all out on the table, calling Omar nothing short of a racist, bigoted, anti-American socialist who thinks the United States, the country she helps to govern in Congress, is everything that’s wrong with the world.
“The people of Minnesota will decide whether or not she remains in Congress,” Pence added. “Congresswoman Omar has no place on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the Democratic leadership ought to remove her.”
Omar has alienated everyone who isn’t already on her side with each of these issues, including fellow Democrats, some of whom want to see her primaried and removed from office.
Alienating Jewish Americans at the expense of pandering to Omar’s radical left-wing base, like the Minnesota Democrat has repeatedly done, isn’t a winning strategy for anyone, let alone the Democratic Party.
And keeping her on the House Foreign Affairs Committee is an even dumber mistake than keeping her in Congress.
Especially when those same Democrats are trying to argue that President Trump is a racist who is destroying America’s standing in the world.
But it’s difficult to argue against Trump when people like Omar help call the shots in the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Do you think Ilhan Omar should be removed from the committee?
