    Dozen Democrats call Omar tweet offensive and misguided
    She says criticism from fellow Democrats ‘Islamophobic’
    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...6GKxaHwUvQXB8Y

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other members of House Democratic leadership put out a joint statement Thursday afternoon saying that drawing any comparison between the U.S. and Israel and terrorist groups like Hamas and the Taliban “foments prejudice and undermines progress toward a future of peace and security for all.”

    “We welcome the clarification by Congresswoman Omar that there is no moral equivalency between the U.S. and Israel and Hamas and the Taliban,” the statement said.

    But in a sign of the simmering tensions within the party, the only other Muslim woman in Congress, Michigan Representative Rashida Tlaib, blasted the Democratic leaders.

    “Freedom of speech doesn’t exist for Muslim women in Congress,” Tlaib tweeted. “The benefit of the doubt doesn’t exist for Muslim women in Congress. House Democratic leadership should be ashamed of its relentless, exclusive tone policing of Congresswomen of color.”

    Republicans called on every House Democrat to join those already critical of Omar. Her comments also drew swift criticism from the American Jewish Committee.

    “A Member of Congress puts 2 vibrant democracies, U.S. & Israel, in the same boat as 2 bloodthirsty terror groups, Hamas & Taliban. Beyond shocking. Beyond reprehensible,” the group’s chief executive, David Harris, tweeted.

    Omar should be deported back to Somalia.

    WTF?! Their government failed, totally imploded, so we're going to put them in our government here?

    Seems like a stupid idea to me.

    This is just her latest racist, bigoted, hateful rant on the subject. It isn't as if this was the first time. She has a long history of antisemitism and bigotry, not just for Jews, but for Whites and others she thinks are deserving of this sort of spite.

    That the Democrat party is unwilling to fully smack her down speaks volumes about their spineless kowtowing to racists, bigots, haters, and other assholes on the Left.

    she has done this before and has dodged censure before because Pelosi is too political craven to do anything moral.
    She spews - then she spews again- and the Squad backs her up

    Exactly. She's one of the biggest hater, racist, bigots in Congress and nobody in her party will admit it and do something about it.

    which is not surprising. i wonder if Lame newz even carried the story on the TVnewz
    Being a Dem is never having to say you're sorry, and "fuck you" instead- and then just walking away
