Ilhan Omar is where she feels most at home: at the center of a national controversy by playing the race card.
But Omar found out that can go both ways.
That’s why Ilhan Omar immediately regretted what she just said before Congress.
Omar and her handmaidens in the Fake News Media have been claiming for days that Donald Trump is a racist for telling Omar and her allies to leave America if they hate it so much.
Omar’s attacks didn’t just fall flat, they boomeranged on her.
That’s because just days after falsely claiming Trump was a racist, Omar introduced a resolution in support of the anti-Semitic Boycott Divest and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to cripple Israel financially by encouraging companies to cut off all business ties because of the supposed “mistreatment” of Palestinians.
Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib introduced a resolution today aimed at supporting the antisemitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which targets the Middle East’s only democracy.
The extremist legislation comes one day after the Democrat-controlled House passed a resolution claiming that President Trump made “racist comments” about four far-left Democratic congresswomen, including Omar and Tliab, known for their controversial remarks about the U.S.
“We are introducing a resolution … to really speak about the American values that support and believe in our ability to exercise our first amendment rights in regard to boycotting,” Omar told Al-Monitor. “And it is an opportunity for us to explain why it is we support a nonviolent movement, which is the BDS movement.”
At a House hearing on Tuesday about the resolution, Omar went so far as to compare boycott movements like the anti-Israel BDS campaign to the Boston Tea Party.
Omar even went so far as to compare the BDS supporters that would like to see Israel ruined and even destroyed as a nation to the Boston Tea Party that helped kick start the American revolution.
With one short speech before Congress, Omar proved Donald Trump to be right that she hates America and is a cancer for the nation’s politics.
