OMAR ERUPTS: Rep. Omar Defends Tlaib’s ‘Holocaust’ Remark, Says Trump ‘Smearing a Muslim Woman’

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.13.19

Embattled Congresswoman Ilhan Omar defended Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s controversial comments regarding the Holocaust Monday; calling President Trump’s fierce criticism a direct attempt to “smear a Muslim woman.”

“You praised people at a neo-Nazi rally. We don’t have to imagine. This is another transparent attempt to sow division b/t minority communities and distract from your own criminal behavior by smearing a Muslim woman. No one should fall for it this time.

“There’s always kind of a calming feeling when I think of the tragedy of the Holocaust, that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence, in many ways, has been wiped out … in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews,” said Tlaib during a recent podcast.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib pushed back against critics Sunday night after the controversial Congresswoman found herself in hot water for saying the Nazi holocaust of European Jews gives her a “calming feeling.”

“Policing my words, twisting & turning them to ignite vile attacks on me will not work. All of you who are trying to silence me will fail miserably. I will never allow you to take my words out of context to push your racist and hateful agenda. The truth will always win,” posted Tlaib on social media.

“There’s always kind of a calming feeling when I think of the tragedy of the Holocaust, that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence, in many ways, has been wiped out … in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews,” said Tlaib during a recent podcast.

Sen. Lindsey Graham didn’t hold back Monday while addressing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ recent comments that compared the ‘migrant caravan’ to ‘Jewish families’ fleeing World War II; saying the future congresswoman should visit the Holocaust museum to discover the difference.

“I recommend she take a tour of the Holocaust Museum in DC. Might help her better understand the differences between the Holocaust and the caravan in Tijuana,” he tweeted.

Cortez’ found herself in hot-water this week after she made the stunning comparison; saying “Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime. It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany. It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.”
