Well, that was quick.
After Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic establishment cracked the whip, Rep. Ilhan Omar has already unequivocally apologized for offending the Jews:
“Updated, 2:57 p.m.: Rep. Ilhan Omar apologized for anti-Semitic comments after coming under pressure from Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats.
“My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole,” she said. “We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. This is why I unequivocally apologize.”
Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her top lieutenants on Monday sharply condemned Rep. Ilhan Omar for using anti-Semitic remarks and called on her to immediately apologize in an extraordinary rebuke of a colleague.
“Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive,” said Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn and other party leaders in a statement. “We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments.“ …
Rep. Ilhan Omar noticed that AIPAC and wealthy Jewish donors control our foreign policy by bribing Republican and Democratic politicians. President Trump himself has repeatedly said the only reason we are staying in the Middle East is because of Israel. You’re not allowed to ask how Israel manages to accomplish this great feat of silencing all criticism in Washington.
It is just “anti-Semitism” to notice things. You’re a bad person for noticing all the Jewish money flowing into the pockets of mainstream politicians. They’re giving all of that money to politicians out of the goodness of the hearts, not to influence our foreign policy. We’re also “protecting Israel” because it is a “democracy” and “our greatest ally” unlike, say, Iran which is not a democracy.
