Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has now posted an ‘unequivocally’ apology for her anti-Semitic slurs, but not really.
See for yourself:

She claims she’s unequivocally apologizing for her anti-Semitic tropes, but then she throws AIPAC under the bus again. AIPAC is one of the ones she should be apologizing to but she can’t even do that.
Her ‘sorry you got offended’ forced non-apology did not fly on Twitter at all. Aaron Blake with the Washington Post pointed out that this is the second time she’s apologizing for using anti-Semitic tropes in just three weeks:
Remember the first time where she claimed that Israel had hypnotized the world?
Here’s more from Twitter:
How many iterations of "thanks for educating me on why I shouldn't have said another blatantly antisemitic thing" will it take before the Dems/media stop playing along?— Phil Kerpen (@kerpen) February 11, 2019
"This why I unequivocally apologize," she says, before equivocating.— Jim Antle (@jimantle) February 11, 2019
"I shouldn't have implied that AIPAC money is behind America's support for Israel, but no, really, keep your eye on AIPAC."— Allahpundit (@allahpundit) February 11, 2019
She "apologizes. Yet, she's "standing strong."— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) February 11, 2019
She acknowledges anti-Semitism. But not her own.
Phony penitence. Real defiance.
And Laura Loomer is still banned from @twitter for calling her out.#fauxpology #stopthebias https://t.co/lsmi7dKgCU
It was never my intention to offend the people of Nebraska as a whole, I only wished to express concern about the general inferiority and incompetence of their football team and corn farming. For this I unequivocally apologize.— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) February 11, 2019
At the same time, we must remember Nebraska sucks.
There’s more but you get the idea. Nobody’s really buying her non-apology except for Democrats:
Thank you Congresswoman @IlhanMN for your leadership. Looking forward to learning from you and with you, and to our conversation about anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism, xenophobia, allyship, bad-faith attacks & more. https://t.co/QbTqn9FORe— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) February 11, 2019
