Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi took a swipe at Rep. Ilhan Omar at the annual AIPAC convention this week; saying in ‘Democratic societies” no one should question another’s “loyalty or patriotism.”
“In our Democratic societies, we should honor legitimate debate on how best to honor our values and to advance our priorities without questioning loyalty or patriotism,” said Pelosi.

Pelosi was referring to Omar’s comments from just weeks ago when she accused American politicians of having a “dual loyalty” and “foreign allegiance” to Israel.
IT GETS WORSE: AOC Claims AIPAC ‘Coming After’ Omar, Tlaib; Slams ‘Influence of Money’ on Foreign Policy
Embattled Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on the Democrats’ recent string of anti-Israeli conspiracy theories Thursday afternoon; releasing a fundraising email that accused AIPAC of “coming after” Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
“It’s official – AIPAC is coming after Alexandria, Ilhan, and Rashida,” writes the email. “Rashida, Ilhan, and Alexandria have at times dared to question our foreign policy, and the influence of money in our political system. And now, lobbying groups across the board are working to punish them for it.”

“In this administration and all others, there should be no special relationship or status. We should actively check anti-Semitism, anti-blackness, homophobia, racism, and all other forms of bigotry,” adds the email.
BAD COMPANY: Farrakhan Defends Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitic Rant, Rails Against ‘Wicked Jews’
Nation of Islam leader and notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan publicly praised embattled Rep. Ilhan Omar Sunday; saying she “has nothing to apologize for” after promoting vicious stereotypes on social media.
“The wicked Jews want to use me to break up the women’s movement,” Farrakhan said during his annual Saviours’ Day event. “It ain’t about Farrakhan; it’s about women all over the world [who] have the power to change the world.”
Farrakhan then defended Omar’s twitter tirade; saying “Ms. Omar from Somalia – she started talking about ‘the Benjamins’ and they are trying to make her apologize. Sweetheart, don’t do that. Pardon me for calling you sweetheart, but you do have a sweet heart. You sure are using it to shake the government up, but you have nothing to apologize for,” Farrakhan said. “Israel and AIPAC pays off senators and congressmen to do their bidding, so you’re not lying, so if you’re not lying. Stop laying down. You were sent there by the people to shake up that corrupt House.”
