Ilhan Omar says Republicans are targeting her as she was a ’black Muslim’

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said Republicans are targeting her to distract from calls to fire Marjorie Taylor Greene from House panels over Greene’s remarks pushing QAnon conspiracy theories. Omar, 38, said this was the ’Republican playbook’ that seeks to blame Muslims, black people and women for the faults of their ’looney’ members. In the past, Omar had faced flak for ’anti-Semitic’ remarks.

I'm pretty sure they target her because she is openly corrupt. Who pays their boyfriend millions in campaign money? Omar do.

It must be nice being a minority in America. I wish I could call anyone who criticises me a sexist, islamophobic, and/or racist.

Omar is a proven anti semite and all has ties and funds the most evil Muslim Brotherhood which helped create Al Qaeda and ISIS. She's also married her brother and should not even be in the USA. Somalia is a hot bed of nothing but terrorist and anti AMERICANS. Send her to GITMO or back to Somalia the country will be better off.

Maybe Americans protesters went to the capital, because this congress has failed the American people for the last four years. Maybe congress might try accomplish for a change.

I am calling for Omar's resignation from Congress over her blatant anti-Semitic statements in the past. Why does she get a pass for basically accusing all Jews of being money mongers while leading this push to expel Rep. Greene?

Is this about the one where video showed her and her people starting an altercation with the nut job lady? Then blaming said nut job lady?

Omar was envious that AOC managed to make the storming of the Capitol about herself.

It's typical for children who are certain they can't win an argument with straight reason to blame something completely irrelevant.

From what I’ve seen, the main reason people are calling her antisemitic is because she is anti-Zionism, which is not the same. Antisemitism is real and dangerous (I should know- I’m Jewish), but equating it with antizionism is too. What the Israeli government has done to Palestine is disgusting, and the fact that our country aids in it is dispicable. This needs to be called out. Unfortunately, there are some Zionist Jews who call anti zionists antizemites as to shield themselves from valid criticism. It’s the same as how Black Hebrew Israelites use their race as a shield from criticism of their antisemitism (though Zionism is more harmful than BHI’s imo). So although I agree that her language has been less than perfect, and I agree with the people who are correcting her on it, I also believe that zionists are making it a bigger issue than it is and playing into the trope of “Muslims and Jews are enemies” as a way of trying to overshadow the more severe antisemitism from our politicians. As for anyone who is scared of being antizionist bc they don’t want to be perceived as antisemitic, I promise you that they are not the same thing. You can support Jews without supporting the actions that the Israeli government is taking. We (especially the diaspora in America) are not the same as their government. We do not represent them. As long as you make a clear distinction between the Israeli governments actions and Jews when you support Palestine, you’re okay.
