posted by Hannity Staff - 1.23.19

Recently sworn-in Rep. Ilhan Omar quietly deleted her infamous tweet slamming the Covington Catholic students on social media Wednesday; removing her post after an avalanche of criticism and outrage from users across the country.

“Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., has apparently deleted an overnight tweet going after Covington Catholic students anew, after facing a social media backlash for her comments,” writes Fox News.

“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 … Sandmann’s family hired a right wing PR firm to write his non-apology,” she tweeted.

Omar’s tweet seemingly ignored revised footage that showed the full context of an exchange between the students, a group of religious activists, and the Native American Tribal Leader.

Recently sworn-in Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has been appointed to the House Foreign Affairs Committee; sparking outrage from those familiar with her previous remarks surrounding the State of Israel.

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been hit with a backlash over her decision to assign freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Affairs Committee, despite the Minnesota Democrat’s record of anti-Israel advocacy,” writes the Washington Times.

“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.”
