Rep. Ilhan Omar continues to make anti-semitic tweets and statements. She fully embraced anti-semite Linda Sarsour on the first day of Congress and since then has weekly caused controversy including tweeting a libelous tweet directed at a high school boy.

Over the weekend Ilhan Omar continued to spread the conspiracy theory that Jews are secretly buying politicians to be pro-Israel

When asked for clarification Omar specifically mentioned American Israel Public Affair Committee which has been a target of leftist conspiracy theories in the past.

The fact that Ilhan Omar serves on the powerful foreign affairs committee has caused angst even among some Democrats.

Muslim reformers and Jewish Groups were quick to condemn Ilhan Omar.

Even Chelsea Clinton distanced herself as a Democrat from Ilhan Omar

As of today, not a single Minnesota Democrat has condemned or even distanced themselves from Rep. Ilhan Omar. (UPDATE: Since publication, a few Minnesota Democrats have issued statements which you can read below)

Republicans have been frustrated by lack of response from Democrat colleagues of Rep., Ilhan Omar. “It’s time for Angie Craig, Dean Phillips and Collin Peterson to take a stand against anti-Semitism and bigotry by calling for Ilhan Omar’s immediate removal from the House Foreign Affairs Committee,” said NRCC Spokeswoman Carly Atchison.

 

Angie Craig is on record as not wanting to speak out against Rep. Ilhan Omar or her antisemitism

 

Dean Phillps who himself is Jewish has so far chosen not to denounce the anti-semitism from his colleague. This comes after Phillips broke his word about being an independent and not voting for Nancy Pelosi.

Minnesota DFL Party Refused to comment
