Radical Congresswoman Ilhan Omar may be a virulent anti-Semite but she’s getting quite a following these days…
The freshman Democrat who hails from
Little Somalia Minneapolis has come under increasing scrutiny over comments that she has made that are of an anti-Semitic nature and was forced to issue one of the most insincere apologies in American political history after she attacked the powerful Israel Lobby AIPAC.
There have been calls to have Omar removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee which she has zero business sitting on due to her lack of experience alone but Speaker Nancy Pelosi has refused to revoke her position and yesterday, she got to beat up on a Jew in front of a live audience.
Longtime foreign policy guru Elliott Abrams who has served in several administrations including Ronald Reagan’s was testifying before the House Foreign Affairs Committee about his recent appoint as President Trump’s special envoy to Venezuela and he was ambushed by the woman in the hijab who hit him over Reagan’s anti-communist policies in Latin America back in the early 1980s.
Via The Hill, “Omar, Trump envoy Elliott Abrams clash in fiery exchange”:
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) engaged in a testy back and forth on Wednesday with special envoy to Venezuela Elliott Abrams, accusing the diplomat of being a liar and pressing him on his involvement in the Iran-Contra affair and killings in Central America during the Reagan administration.
“I don’t understand why members of this committee or the American people should find any testimony that you give today to be truthful,” she said in her initial comments to Abrams, who pleaded guilty to withholding evidence from Congress in the Iran-Contra affair of the 1980s.
Abrams tried to interject, but Omar said she was not asking a question.
“It was an attack,” Abrams responded.
Omar pressed Abrams repeatedly on U.S. involvement in Nicaragua and El Salvador during the Reagan administration, when the U.S. backed the Salvadoran military and Nicaraguan insurgents. Abrams served at the time as assistant secretary of State.
Omar specifically questioned Abrams about his past comments on the El Mozote massacre, where the Salvadoran military killed hundreds of civilians.
“You later said that the U.S. policy in El Salvador was a fabulous achievement. Do you still think so?” Omar asked.
Abrams noted that El Salvador has been a democracy for decades since the Reagan administration, calling it a “fabulous achievement.”
“Do you think that massacre was a fabulous achievement?” Omar asked.
“That is a ridiculous question,” Abrams replied sharply. “I am not going to respond to that kind of personal attack, which is not a question.”
It’s not like Abrams is any sort of an angel and the neocon has as long sordid history but there is a certain degree of decorum that should be exhibited at such hearings and Pelosi’s prized freshman class of angry Muslim/socialist women have been a fucking disgrace since they took office.
Omar did, however, earn a glowing review from the former KKK grand wizard, neo-Nazi Jew hater David Duke who has to be thrilled with the anti-Jew Democratic party.

She also accused Trump of being an anti-Semite: talk about shameless projection!
You have trafficked in hate your whole life—against Jews, Muslims, Indigenous, immigrants, black people and more. I learned from people impacted by my words. When will you? https://t.co/EqqTyjkiNE
