HERE WE GO AGAIN: Rep. Omar Says US Must Support Those Who ‘Fight for Liberation of Palestine’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.15.19

Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar continued to focus on the “liberation of Palestine” over the weekend; telling a group of supporters in Philadelphia that the US needs to celebrate “non-violent” resistance against Israel.

“In the situation of Palestine, what we are doing right now is having hypocrisy in not celebrating non-violent movements there and condemning it,” said Rep. Omar.

“That’s what we’re dealing with in the Halls of Congress. That is in the media, in regards to people who are not-violently wanting to resist and fight for the liberation of the Palestinian people. That hypocrisy needs to end,” she added.

Ilhan Omar made national headlines earlier this year for a series of anti-Israeli controversies; accusing American politicians of holding a secret allegiance to the world’s only Jewish State.

Omar also defended Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ recent controversial Holocaust remarks last Friday; saying people are “in camps” and being “concentrated,” therefore they are “Concentration Camps.”

“When you look at what is taking place, people are being put in camps. And when you think about the definition, if we separate it from death camps, I would say these are camps and people are being concentrated in them. And so that’s the general definition,” Omar said during a recent interview.

“I think a lot of people are conflating what a death camp looks like or a specific removal of people. These people are coming to the border. We are removing them from the border. We are placing them in camps. Some of them are being removed from communities and being put in what we’re calling detention centers — but are essentially camps,” she added.

Ocasio-Cortez flat-out refused to apologize for her recent remarks regarding the President’s immigration policy Friday; doubling-down on her stunning comparison between detention centers and ‘Concentration Camps.’

“As long as the @GOPLeader supports jailing children and families on the border, I will continue to hold him to account for it. That’s why I’m calling on Rep. McCarthy to apologize for aiding and supporting the separation of children from their parents,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

Yad Vashem, the official Israel Holocaust Center in Jerusalem responded this week to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ recent comments; urging the far-left lawmaker to “learn” about concentration camps.

@AOC Concentration camps assured a slave labor supply to help in the Nazi war effort, even as the brutality of life inside the camps helped assure the ultimate goal of ‘extermination through labor.’ Learn about concentration camps,” posted Yad Vashem.

 

A NEW LOW: Omar Compares Her 9/11 Comments with Famous Bush Speech, Asks of W. ‘Downplayed Attacks’

Controversial Rep. Ilhan Omar stunned Americans on both sides of the political aisle Friday; comparing her previous comments on the 9/11 terror attack with George W. Bush’s address from the rubble of the World Trade Center.

“’The people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!’ President George W. Bush. Was Bush downplaying the terrorist attack? What if he was a Muslim?” posted Omar on social media.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi confirmed Friday she plans to “speak to her” regarding Omar’s stunning rhetoric.

A NEW LOW: Rashida Tlaib Accuses STEVE SCALISE of ‘Islamophobia’ for Condemning Anti-Semitism

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.07.19

Recently sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib blasted GOP Rep. Steve Scalise Wednesday evening; accusing the lawmaker of “Islamophobia” after he demanded Ilhan Omar be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee for her anti-Semitic statements.

“Hard to watch Rep. Scalise demand that Rep. @IlhanMN be removed from House Foreign Affairs w/o wondering if it’s steeped in Islamophobia. Ilhan is more than capable of sitting on the committee & making decisions that are in the best interests of her constituents & all Americans,” posted Tlaib on social media.

Omar made national headlines earlier this year after she accused “evil” Israel of “hypnotizing” the world and flat-out refused to condemn Venezuela’s socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro.
