Women’s March organizer Linda Sarsour defended Rep. Ilhan Omar following her anti-Israeli twitter tirade this week; calling Speaker Pelosi a “typical white feminist” upholding “the patriarchy” in America.
“Nancy is a typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men. God forbid the men are upset – no worries, Nancy to the rescue to stroke their egos,” posted Sarsour on Facebook.

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.”
DEVELOPING: Pelosi, Dems to Introduce Resolution to ‘CONFRONT’ Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Israeli Rhetoric
House Democrats -including Speaker Nancy Pelosi- are poised to introduce a new resolution this week that will “confront” Rep. Ilhan Omar’s recent anti-Israeli comments and fiery rhetoric against the Jewish State.
“Speaker Nancy Pelosi and top Democrats will take floor action Wednesday in response to controversial remarks by Rep. Ilhan Omar about Israel, the second such rebuke of the freshman Democrat from party leaders in recent weeks,” reports Politico.
“Pelosi and other senior Democrats are drafting a resolution to address the controversy, which ballooned over the weekend following a public clash between Omar and senior Jewish lawmakers,” adds the article.
Omar made national headlines over the weekend after refusing to “pledge allegiance” to a foreign country; refusing to back-down from her previous comments regarding the “occupation” of Palestine.
