Omar Gets WORST News of Career As Congressional Dems Reject Donations From Ilhan

Linkedin Share

Freshman lawmakers don’t normally get as much attention as Reps. Ilhan Omar (MN), Rashida Tlaib (MI), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY).

And yet, one of the three far-left lawmakers consistently seems to make headline news.

In Omar’s case, she’s not having a great day. Apparently, Congressional Dems are taking a stand.

From From Beacon:

The reelection campaign for Rep. Lucy McBath (D., Ga.) said Wednesday it rejected a $2,000 contribution sent to it by her fellow Democratic freshman congresswoman Ilhan Omar (Minn.), who has been criticized by colleagues on both sides of the aisle for anti-Semitism.

The Free Beacon first reported the $2,000 contribution given by Omar to McBath, whose campaign oddly left the contribution off its quarterly fundraising report. Pressed on the reason for its absence on Tuesday, the McBath campaign said only, “Our report is accurate,” and declined to provide further details.

McBath’s campaign admitted on Wednesday, however, that the lack of disclosure was due to a decision to reject the money from Omar, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Omar said “some people did something” on 9/11 and the mainstream media hardly batted an eye. Of course, conservatives took notice and called her out.

Ocasio-Cortez predictably came to Omar’s defense and did so by mocking Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw (TX), war hero.

Omar noted, “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.

WATCH:

Crenshaw’s tweet about Omar:

First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as “some people who did something”.

Unbelievable.

AOC’s dastardly response:

You refuse to cosponsor the 9/11 Victim’s Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes.

In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why don’t you go do something about that?

Why is Alexandria’s tweet so nutty? Well, here are a couple of reasons…

This is pretty deceptive.

The bill has *not* even been voted on in the House.

A person does *not* have to cosponsor a bill to vote in support of it.

The other day, Omar referred to White House adviser Stephen Miller, a Jew, as a “white nationalist.”

If you think that might not make sense, it’s because it doesn’t.

Her tweet:

Stephen Miller is a white nationalist. The fact that he still has influence on policy and political appointments is an outrage.

President Trump responded, sending a pair of tweets aimed right at Ilhan.
