Yesterday, newly-elected Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.-Liar) suddenly got around to apologizing for a 2012 anti-Israel tweet in which she used an anti-Semitic trope. This, after stating she had “no idea” why American Jews might be offended by her statement that Israel is “hypnotizing” the world.
Now, Omar really “stepped in it” again with this lying, disgusting tweet.
And the backlash was so intense, that I fortunately took a screen shot this morning, because the tweet has now been deleted.
And an apology? Probably by 2025.
Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., has apparently deleted an overnight tweet going after Covington Catholic students anew, after facing a social media backlash for her comments.
Her tweet had been posted well after the initial round of misreporting on the students’ widely viewed confrontation with a Native-American elder in Washington last week. Media figures initially seized on the viral confrontation with Nathan Phillips, with an initial clip appearing to show the students antagonizing him. But additional video then emerged offering context, including that Phillips approached them amid a confrontation between the students and Black Hebrew Israelite protesters. The students pushed back on the initial criticism, and many of those critics have since retracted their statements….
The militant black supremacist lunatics who call themselves the Black Hebrew Israelites are a well known hate group, FYI. I'm sure you have a lot in common with them.

Vile tweet. The kid who made who made the rape comment wasn’t Covington Catholic. The black adults were viciously taunting the kids with racist and homophobic comments.
Oh and any sane kid would use PR help if he could to write the most important statement of his young life. https://t.co/WjYW1hzdwD

You are a shameless liar!
Not only did the boys not taunt the “5 black men,” but it was actually the 5 members of the Black Hebrew Israelites who taunted not only the boys, but other black men AND women who tried to interject & stop their racial slurs against Native Americans! pic.twitter.com/OqDqxqGr0I
