Radical Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar has recently been under fire for her most recent anti-Semitic comments specifically targeting Israel.
Instead of taking the opportunity to condemn the congress woman, Democrats have spent the entire week tiptoeing around the subject in an effort to defend the anti-Semite.
House Minority Whip James Clyburn took things to another level when he told descendants of Holocaust survivors and people put in Franklin Roosevelt’s Japanese internment camps that they need to “check their privilege.”
Check out what The Hill reported:
Clyburn came to Omar’s defense Wednesday, lamenting that many of the media reports surrounding the recent controversy have omitted mentioning that Omar, who was born in Somalia, had to flee the country to escape violence and spent four years in a Kenyan refugee camp before coming to the United States.
Her experience, Clyburn argued, is much more empirical — and powerful — than that of people who are generations removed from the Holocaust, Japanese internment camps during World War II and the other violent episodes that have marked history.
It gets worse. Clyburn goes on to mock Holocaust descendants by saying, “I’m serious about that. There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors.’ ‘My parents did this.’ It’s more personal with her,” Clyburn said. “I’ve talked to her, and I can tell you she is living through a lot of pain.”
He wasn’t done there. Clyburn made it clear that the victims in this situation were not Jewish people who were targeted by Omar, but it was actually Omar herself! Oh, that totally makes sense!
“She won’t be targeted. We’re going to target those people who had her picture on the Twin Towers,” Clyburn told the Hill.
“This resolution is going to be inclusive; it’s going to be expansive; and I might just try to add something to deal with that billboard that’s up in Pennsylvania this morning calling John Lewis and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus racists,” he added.
WOW! Instead of going after Omar who is a member of Congress who spewed anti-Semitic hate, Clyburn is going to go after some random guy in Pennsylvania who put up billboards.
This is the Democratic party for you.
When one of them messes up, they blame someone else, even if that person is just some random guy.
We saw this similar tactic used by the Left earlier this week.
After Omar became under fire again for her anti-Semitism, the House led by Nancy Pelosi decided that they were NOT going to condemn Omar, but instead they were going to come out with a statement that said “all hate is bad,” specifically mentioning Islamophobia in an effort to target the Right.
Talk about a deflection!
Pelosi didn’t even mention Omar’s name in the resolution.
The House Democrats are sending a very clear message that racism and anti-Semitism is acceptable as long as you are a Democrat. Imagine the outrage if these comments came from a Republican!
