AOC Cries About Racism Towards Rabid Antisemite Ilhan
Recently, GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert made what can be most charitably be described as a tasteless joke at the expense of Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar.
Rep. Omar has been receiving very hateful and violent messages since then:
It should go without saying that no one — not even Ilhan Omar — deserves to have their life threatened like that, over religion or anything else.
However, it should also go without saying that Ilhan Omar is not an innocent victim of religious bigotry. And despite what she claims, it’s not just up to the GOP to confront discrimination in their ranks.
Ilhan Omar has a long, well-documented history of antisemitism dating from long before being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. Over and over again, she has trafficked in antisemitic tropes and dog whistles and blood libels, and the Democratic Party has let her off with, at worst, a limp slap on the wrist. Most of the time, they make excuses for her or outright ignore her virulent antisemitism, as AOC is doing here:
“Ku Klux Klan caucus”? That’s the sort of talk that could really rile up AOC’s hard-leftist base and possibly result in threats of violence or worse for House Republicans.
But it’s OK when AOC does it.
Remember when the House tossed out clichés like “we condemn all forms of racism and bigotry” instead of holding Ilhan Omar specifically accountable for grossly antisemitic remarks? There were no consequences for Rep. Omar. But AOC defended her then and continues to protect her now.
The Jews would like a word, AOC. You know, the Jews that you don’t care for much more than Ilhan Omar or Rashida Tlaib does. The ones in Israel that the Squad has smeared as bloodthirsty murderers. The ones in New York City who get violently assaulted for looking too Jewy.
Pick better arguments or pick better friends, AOC. If we were you, we’d do both.

Notes from the Editor
My father used to tell me when I was younger; if you do something to someone else, you have no right to complain when someone else does the same thing back to you.
TRENDING: JEW-HATE RISING
We have this case with Ilhan. While I disagree with the hateful messages she has gotten in her voice male; it is hard for me to find sympathy when she has been doing the same thing against Jews and Israel. If you are going to play the victim for the same thing you are doing to others, don’t look to me for sympathy…. to be frank, I don’t care.
