Minnesota’s freshmen Democrat, Rep. Ilhan Omar hasn’t exactly been the best at hiding her obvious anti-semitism, and this recent interaction with CNN isn’t going to help her case.
Omar is a supporter of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaign against Israel. The “BDS” movement is usually the result of antisemitic feelings, and use it as a way to weaken against Israel. Many on the left play it off as a protest against Israel’s treatment of Palestinians, including its combat tactics against known terrorists.
Omar was recently confronted by CNN (go figure) about why she supports the BDS movement. The reporter could hardly get the words out of his mouth before Omar turned and began to flee from the reporter. Directly after, CNN reported that Democrats claim that every member is against the BDS movement.

It’s very clear where Omar stands, however.
This is the same woman who constantly speaks out against Israel, including one interview where she suggested Israel shouldn’t get to exist as a Jewish state and that it is not a Democracy since it does.
This is also the same Omar who is on record blaming terrorist acts on, not the terrorists, but on those who fight them according to the Daily Caller:
“When are we gonna decide or realize that terrorism is a reaction? It’s an ideology, it’s a means of things, it’s not an entity, it’s not a place, people. It’s a reaction to a situation,” [Ahmad] Tharwat said in the interview, which Fox News uncovered Monday.
“Yes. What you’re insinuating is what nobody wants to face,” Omar replied. “Nobody wants to face how the actions of the other people that are involved in the world have contributed to the rise of the radicalization and the rise of terrorist acts.”
“Usually most people want to not look internal [sic] and see what [are] their actions that makes another react. For us, it’s always, ‘I must have not done anything. Why is it happening to me?’ Nobody wants to take accountability of how these are byproducts of the actions of our involvement in other people’s affairs,” she added.
And then there was this…
Ilhan Omar gave multiple interviews to a fringe Arab-American television host, Ahmed Tharwat, who calls Israel the “Jewish ISIS” and has compared the terrorist group Hamas to Holocaust victims. @Ilhan, totally not an anti-Semite… https://t.co/4RtGbytwKO pic.twitter.com/HywMHAlXDP

Omar is clearly practiced racism and bigotry, all the while pretending to be a uniter of the people.
