House Dems condemn Oman over anti semitic statement

Rep. Ilhan Omar, a freshman Minnesota Democrat and progressive star, was publicly rebuked on Monday by House Democratic leadership for suggesting that Congressional support for Israel is bought and paid for by lobbyists, playing on old stereotypes of Jews as money-grubbing influence-peddlers.

“Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive,” wrote Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and other leadership officials. “We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments.”

TVNL Comment:  Omar has to learn that she loses credibility when she loses focus and repeats propaganda. This 'money-grubbing' idea that shows Jews as being for sale to the highest bidder is an old anti-Semitic ploy.  OPEC rates scrutiny as a far too powerful spokesgroup for Israel.  By conflating the two, Omar shows her lack of experience and knowlege of history.
