Ilhan Omar says her critics are ‘weaponizing’ her anti-Semitism to shut down debate

Well here we go again with the stupid statements coming out of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

This time she seems to admit that she’s anti-Semitic, but whines that people are using it against her!!

It’s a short video, check it out:



Yah! Sure, some people are anti-Semites, but some people are just “weaponizing” their anti-Semitism against them. Hmmm. Sooooo does that mean Ilhan Omar is admitting she’s an anti-Semite? Hmmm. Well that’s awkward.

And isn’t she having a great week? She got called out for her fake statistic on gun control, tried to defend it, and then fell flat on her burka. Poor thing.

Anyway, that’s it for Saturday. Hope your weekend is going well. As always, we appreciate you sharing and commenting on our articles.

Have an open thread.

I have one comment fodder:

I don’t think that anti-white sentiment is going to get very far…

  1. I just realized today that DC is one of those goofy leftist places that has banned plastic drinking straws in restaurants. That’s where we’re going this year for vacation – at least 3 days of it anyway. We’re not staying in DC but will probably have a few meals in the city. I guess we’ll be packing our own straws, but I definitely have to see what they’re providing in the place of plastic ones. I also bothered to find what I could on the law, and it looks like only businesses will get in trouble for providing them, so I guess it’s still okay for patrons to have their own straw? They haven’t gotten to the point of fining individuals, but I’m sure they will.

    1. @squirrelly I’m old enough to remember when all straws (and to-go cups) were made of paper. Trucks aren’t allowed in DC and I’m OK with that. I avoid the east coast as much as possible, anyway.

      1. It’ll be fun and educational for my kids, and I have a 90 year old great aunt in northern Maryland I’m close with and want to see before I can’t. Will probably never go back though.

    2. I hate those paper straws. That whole thing got started because some kid made up a statistic on plastic straw consumption. I grantee using paper straws doesn’t do anything but make them feel good about themselves. And I thought the whole reason from switching from paper to plastic was to save the trees.

  2. In the past I have likened Omar to a snake but now realize the comparison is terribly flawed. Snakes invariably go about their business in accordance to the Creator’s intentions. Whereas concerning the Creator the business of Omar invariably seems, and likely is, at odds.
    That said it’s nigh impossible to deny the physical resemblance.

    1. @ush. I must disagree. She has shark’s eyes and that’s the comparison that I would make.

      1. This is nothing more then classic Islamic supremacy the Koran tells its followers lie to the infidels also sal Alinsky: accuse your enemy of what your guilty of aka all Demorats

  3. Comment fodder:
    I believe I will culturally appropriate any damn thing I want to. Eat at Mexican, Italian, Chinese and Greek restaurants. Drink tequila, vodka, wine and rum if I feel like it. Dress as anything I want to at Halloween. If other cultures get offended, then ya’ll stop doing white stuff. Hmmmm, what exactly is it we whites have as our very own?

    1. Ever notice the naturally-black-haired people all of a sudden have blond or red hair??
      Now that’s cultural appropriation!

    2. Lol… Guilty.

      I like this point you’ve made. Isn’t America supposed to be a “melting pot”?

  4. Re “Dear White Allies:”
    I can’t wait for this nonsense to finally pass. It can’t possibly go on much longer, it’s as ridiculous as the Emperor with his New Clothes.

    And I Omar: She just keeps stepping deeper and deeper into it. At least she’s not hiding it like the Left did for so long. But the fact that she seems to get no blowback at all is really scary.

    1. The blowback is starting…very slowly.

      The problem is her district will not care. It is not a district full of reasonable, informed people. So unless there is a legal justification for removing her from office she will skate on by.

      I am including a link from a Minnesotan who posts on the Power Line blog. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be a link to the entire 6 entries of the blog, so you’ll have to click them individually. If you open the link the oldest post is at the bottom and then you’ll have to work your way up.

  5. Well, Ilhan, if you weren’t an anti-Semite, people wouldn’t be able to “weaponize” it.

    Are you saying they should just let you be an anti-Semite?

  6. Best thing that could have ever happened to the Repubs.The Dems cannot get along with themselves

  7. I appreciate all those who wished for dads to have a happy Father’s Day. As a father myself, I often feel unappreciated. I wanted to share this fairly short article that I read in honor of my Step-Father who raised me (for the most part). It’s pretty well written and it’s quite appropriate and even sentimental. It honors, non-biological fathers and the important role they play in their children’s lives. I hope you’ll take the time to read it. I think you’ll be glad you did.

  8. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again;

    Ilhan Omar is PI$$ED OFF that she has to mask and hide her anti-semitism and she’s growing tired of it, especially since Pelosi and company REFUSED to condemn her and Tlaib’s comments, instead watering down the Resolution until it didn’t even condemn their offensive statements. In FACT, both Omar and Tlaib used the “resolution” as proof their statements were OK and made a victory lap holding their “resolution” as a trophy.

  9. Thanks for the open thread Soop.
    I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all you wonderful Dad’s out there a Happy Father’s Day on Sunday.
    I was fortunate enough to have the most amazing Dad, and even though he is no longer with us….I think about him everyday.
    Treasure every moment as a family. My oldest son is a Dad himself, and it will be his first Father’s Day tomorrow.
    :praying:

  10. Who was the lady sitting next to her? Just curious because I thought it was Judge Judy at first and thought, “Oh, she is going to let her have it!” Hahaha!! I think she is saying she is called anti-semitic the same way we’re called racist. It’s a tool, a weapon. I’m sorry, but she IS anti-semitic while many people are not racist but get called such for any number of reasons the left deems applicable or yes, to shut down debate.

  11. My friend and I were laughing because work was instructing us on heat stroke emergency, and said the person may turn pale white, ( my friend is black) so we laughed about it. And then I told her that I was going to present her with an alternative fact, that I’m not white, I’m simply without color. We had a great afternoon. 🙂

    1. Most of my jokes are: “You had to be there” types of humor. Yours is immediately funny, just on its face. 😉

  12. How dare Ilhan Omar weaponize our weaponization of her weaponizement of our weaponizing her anti-Semitism against her! She’s only trying to shut down debate.

  13. Since it’s an open thread, I want to wish any fathers who post here a happy and blessed Father’s Day.

    Lord knows we need more good fathers in this world.

    1. And Semolia needs to be purged of all scum, and leave the decent people to live their lives peacefully.

  14. Where in the frack was that sign posted? Okay, I need a drink. As for Omar? You’re anti-Semitic if you’re anti-Semitic. If you’re not, you aren’t. But you are. Her head wrap is too tight.

  15. I honestly think her anti-semitism is the least of her concerns right now.

    The tax fraud issue is probably not going to go away. There are local politicians who are going after her hard on this issue.

    Even the Star Tribune is starting to be critical of her. Not as critical as it should be, but it’s at least starting to do its job.

    There was an internal email that was released due to an FOIA request where someone on the team essentially admitted the Star Tribune was selective in what they printed about Omar and the Omar campaign had worked with “journalists” to squash stories that were not positive for her.

  16. Ilhan Omar is a RACIST! She does not deserve to spread her hate on America’s time! She is immoral, a tax cheat, a fraud and committed Incest by marrying her brother for immigration status.
    I’m all for a public female genital mutilation!!

  18. Here we go. 😕

    Make stupid, racist statements. Get called out for them. Cry about how critics are taking statements out of context. Cry about critics trying to “silence debate”.

    *smh* Typical. What a crybaby.

    Look, she wanted to run for office and be the face of the new Congress. Well, criticism comes with the territory and someone needs to remind this snowflake of that fact. This is the same tiresome crap we hear from Black folks and I, as a Black woman, am tired of it. If you want the power to change things, stop whining when people criticize the changes you want to make, smearing that criticism as “racist”, “sexist”, “bigoted”, or “phobic”.

  19. Here’s one for the open thread: Deneen Borelli has a devastating rant on the failure of the Dem local governments in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and NYC, particularly as it applies to the homeless and the filth that accompanies them on the streets. She also talks about a new and dangerous public health threat, RATS and the typhus they are beginning to spread.

    Note: I live in a “very nice” suburb of Los Angeles, 50 miles away from the city. It is clean, well run, with no homeless on our streets. And yet just in the last couple of weeks I have seen a couple of RATS (not just the usual squirrels or bunnies) scamper across my patio. It is really shocking. I have never seen this before.

    Also, I am connected to a “neighborhood app” and people have been discussing this lately. Someone suggested hanging up a “barn owl box” to attract owls who eat the rats. People were all over the idea, asking where they could buy one. I’ve never even seen an owl around here, it’s not like it’s their natural habitat.

    Anyway, here’s Deneen, she’s worth the watch:

    https://www.theblaze.com/deneen-borelli/california-rats-garbage-typhus

    1. @nc-checks-and-balances Owls are nocturnal and very quiet, perhaps you haven’t noticed them. Remember when the environazis were screaming about some little owl losing its habitat and a pair was found nesting behind the letters of a Kmart sign?

      1. @dr-strangelove I hope you’re right. I would love to have some owls take up residence around here. There are certainly plenty of trees in my neighborhood. I have heard you have to watch out for small cats and such (like my little chihuahua!) but believe it or not we also occasionally have coyotes come down from the hills, and there have been sightings around here lately. They’re quite bold, so my dogs don’t go outside unsupervised.

        I hope the owls just take the rats but leave the bunnies alone, though. They’re really cute. 😳

        BUT those rats have got to go! I can’t understand why the city and/or county isn’t being more proactive about this, as this really is a public health issue.

        1. @nc-checks-and-balances Yeah, some owls get pretty big and could carry a small pet away, but like I said, they’re nocturnal as are rats.

          1. @dr-strangelove The rats are nocturnal too? But the ones I saw were in the daytime! Does that mean there are even MORE than I thought? NOOOOOOO!!!!!! 😮

            1. @nc-checks-and-balances Generally, yes, but you will see them in the daytime, especially if they’re HUNGRY!

      1. @finrod See my reply to Doc above. Most people won’t let their cats outside unsupervised because of the coyotes. 🙁

        1. Too many people let their pets, and especially their cats, roam free with no supervision. I’ve never understood that. I mean I guess if you live on a farm or out in the sticks, I can kind of see it, but still…their lives will probably be a lot shorter than they might otherwise be.

          Anyway, the point is, good for you.

  20. Here we go. 😕

  23. Of course its OK to vilify Islamophobia and weaponize it. She needs to choose between Sharia law and the constitution and get the heck out of the USA.

  24. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again;

    Ilhan Omar is PI$$ED OFF that she has to mask and hide her anti-semitism and she’s growing tired of it, especially since Pelosi and company REFUSED to condemn her and Tlaib’s comments, instead watering down the Resolution until it didn’t even condemn their offensive statements. In FACT, both Omar and Tlaib used the “resolution” as proof their statements were OK and made a victory lap holding their “resolution” as a trophy.

    1. And they’re hiding it less and less, because as you’ve pointed out…why should they?

  25. Well, Ilhan, if you weren’t an anti-Semite, people wouldn’t be able to “weaponize” it.

    Are you saying they should just let you be an anti-Semite?

  26. Of course its OK to vilify Islamophobia and weaponize it. She needs to choose between Sharia law and the constitution and get the heck out of the USA.

  28. She’s an idiot… that’s what I’m constantly reduced to whenever this moron pukes out this nonsense or evil. I don’t think she’s assimilated to America and I sure don’t think she should be in public office. Her anti-Semitism alone disqualifies her… but her poisonous ideology is the final nail in the coffin imo. I can’t stand the sight of her. To me, she’s worse than AOC.

  31. I just realized today that DC is one of those goofy leftist places that has banned plastic drinking straws in restaurants. That’s where we’re going this year for vacation – at least 3 days of it anyway. We’re not staying in DC but will probably have a few meals in the city. I guess we’ll be packing our own straws, but I definitely have to see what they’re providing in the place of plastic ones. I also bothered to find what I could on the law, and it looks like only businesses will get in trouble for providing them, so I guess it’s still okay for patrons to have their own straw? They haven’t gotten to the point of fining individuals, but I’m sure they will.

    1. @squirrelly I’m also planning a trip there in the early fall, but haven’t set definite plans yet. Didn’t know about the straw thing, but it shouldn’t be an issue for me.

    2. @squirrelly I’m old enough to remember when all straws (and to-go cups) were made of paper. Trucks aren’t allowed in DC and I’m OK with that. I avoid the east coast as much as possible, anyway.

          1. I’ve been there and you are completely right. 85 can be awful in places too… but 95 is awful. My sincere condolences.

            1. @muckjumper Doesn’t 85 go between the mountains? That’s a nice ride. Maybe that’s 87, I haven’t been down that way in a few years. I suppose that I could look at an atlas…

              1. I think you’re thinking of I-81. I was in Jersey on 9/11 and we used I-80 to escape west then I-81 to head south towards Atlanta.

                1. @finrod Yep, forgot all about it. I looked at the atlas, it is 81. Nice ride through there.

          2. As a side note, I grew up around I-80. I was born in Iowa, raised in the Quad Cities and my first Air Force Base was Offutt AFB, NE. I was on I-80 whenever I would go home, almost every weekend when I was visiting my girlfriend and traveled on it when I visited my relatives in Cedar Rapids, IA.

            I’m sharing this because I always pumped my arm (when I was younger) to try and get the Semi’s to honk their loud airhorns; I often drove among them in all types of weather and imagined where they were going and where they had come from; and I sort of romanticized that profession because of the movie “Smokey and the Bandit.”

            I’m sure you see and hear a lot of interesting things (and probably boring ones too) while you are on the road. But the weird thing for me now is I honestly wonder sometimes while traveling if it might be you who is in the truck next to me.

            Be safe out there.

            1. @Sentinel They say that if you stay out there long enough, you’ll see everything, and there’s a little truth to that. Mostly it’s long periods of tedium interspersed with brief moments of sheer terror.

                1. @muckjumper It’s similar to being in the military, the big difference, of course, is I’m doing my best not to kill the enemy.

          3. Ever drive through Baton Rouge and have to cross the MS River Bridge going East on I-10? That in itself is the WORST!! For that reason we say Baton Rouge is only an hour from Baton Rouge.

            1. @squirrelly I’ve been through there, but I don’t recall it being any worse than a lot of other places. When I can, I time my trips to avoid rush hour.

              1. Oh, that is not a rush hour thing. That is an all hours of the day thing. It’s a bad bottleneck. The middle of the night might be the only time it’s good.

      1. It’ll be fun and educational for my kids, and I have a 90 year old great aunt in northern Maryland I’m close with and want to see before I can’t. Will probably never go back though.

          1. Not to kiss up, but I drive well with the truckers. I’m not one of those people. Besides, I don’t want to make one angry; they’ll alert the others.

            1. @squirrelly It’s just a joke. Most truckers are very responsible. 9 out of 10 truck-car wrecks are the fault of the motorist.

      1. @mother124 I’ve been using the same plastic cups for ice in my cooler for years. I have a SS cup and a plastic straw lasts month in it. I guess that it’s the result of parents who grew up in the depression and taught never to throw away anything.

    3. I hate those paper straws. That whole thing got started because some kid made up a statistic on plastic straw consumption. I grantee using paper straws doesn’t do anything but make them feel good about themselves. And I thought the whole reason from switching from paper to plastic was to save the trees.

    There’s a big problem with that. The left attaches anything we do to race. Voter ID laws, border security, arresting unruly and criminal black men, banning abortion, etc. etc. etc….even though our positions do not target people because of their race. They are definitely weaponizing the word “racist” by attaching it to everything we do in order to marginalize us.

    The problem for her and her comments is that they are all anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian. She is definitely focused on race and religion.
