Recently sworn-in Rep. Ilhan Omar found herself in hot-water from both sides of the political spectrum Tuesday night; baselessly claiming the group of Catholic students were leading “racist chants” and “taunting” people in the nation’s capital.
“-The boys were protesting a woman’s right to choose & yelled ‘it’s not rape if you enjoy it’ -They were taunting 5 Black men before they surrounded Phillips and led racist chants,” she tweeted.

“It is disgraceful that Speaker Pelosi and her Democrat majority gave a coveted seat on the House Foreign Relations Committee to a member who has a documented history of making anti-Semitic and anti-Israel remarks,” Rep. Steve Scalise said Thursday.
Omar recently defended her scathing critique of Israel; writing back in 2012 “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
