Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY) called out fellow Democrat Ilhan Omar for her anti-Semitic statements she makes on Sunday. Lowey being a Jewish person was completely saddened by the remarks Ilhan Omar claiming Jewish politicians have dual loyalty to Israel. Omar fired back claiming Jews are attempting to force her to pledge loyalty to Israel.
Nita Lowey tweeted, “Gross Islamophobic stereotypes – like those about @IlhanMN recently featured on posters in WVA – are offensive and have no place in political discourse. Anti-Semitic tropes that accuse Jews of dual loyalty are equally painful and must also be roundly condemned.”
Nita Lowey continued, “Lawmakers must be able to debate w/o prejudice or bigotry. I am saddened that Rep. Omar continues to mischaracterize support for Israel. I urge her to retract this statement and engage in further dialogue with the Jewish community on why these comments are so hurtful.”
Ilhan Omar responded doubling down on her anti-Semitic stance, “Our democracy is built on debate, Congresswoman! I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee. The people of the 5th elected me to serve their interest. I am sure we agree on that!”
Ilhan Omar has hate for the Jewish religion deep inside her soul to the point she supports the same ideas Hitler supported. Omar is a staunch supporter of the Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS), which is a boycott of all Israeli business or anyone who does business with Israel. The first thing Hitler did to the Jewish people was force them to wear the David star in order for people not to do business with the Jewish people.
