Congressman James Clyburn, D-S.C., defended freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Wednesday by saying her experience was "more personal" than Jews whose parents survived the Holocaust.
Is this guy a few bricks short of a full load.
Granted, I don't know her upbringing and history as far as exposure to Isreal or any Jewish people but I find it hard to believe that any Isreali has ever caused her any harm or injury. She is listed as Somali-American but born in Mogadishu Somalia, so I take it she was naturalized. Being from Somalia she has seen and experienced many trials and tribulations. My point is none of these was caued by Isreal or any jewish person. She is expressing the Learned hatred of the Jews by almost all Muslims. She gives voice to these in her statements. There is not reason or excuse for such comments by her or any person in the USA or any other country for that matter.

    When I heard Clyburn say that Jewish families of Holocaust victims and Japanese Americans who experienced detainment during WW II needed to "check their privilege" before criticizing Omar, all I could think was whether he would be willing to tell the blacks who demand reparations for slavery if they need to "check their privilege" too. Double standard, hypocrisy?

    Omar was naturalized in 2000.

    She came to this country in 1995 when she was 14. Attended high school in VA where she was a community organizer (sounds familiar).

    She complained about being bullied in high school for wearing the towel on her head (aka hijab). That is probably what the black rep is talking about her personal pain.

    Of course it is the same as Jewish fate during the Nazis, according to the black rep.

    I am bringing this up because her bio indicates she grew up in Mogadishu where children are indoctrinated in kindergarten to hate and kill Jews.

    The doctrine spewed by her stinks to high heaven by that influence, the "death to Israel", "death to America" mantra.

    It is not surprising the left embraces this animosity. It fits well into their own hatred of everything American, especially the president who dares to confront them with MAGA.

      If I was in Congress (I did run in 2008) and referred to illwind Omar as a "Raghead Mudslime," would I get censured by the rest of Congress and thrown off committees?
      The backlash would take one second, and Nasty Pelousy would not say, "He's new and doesn't know the weight of what he's saying.

    She is muslim, and muslims are against the west in ideology. Not a lot more needs to be said, except that islam is a violent and intolerant religion at its core. Why we would allow a proponent of islam to be in our government is totally beyond me, but if we do, this is what we get.

    This Dem has no clue. Every Jewish boy with a skullcap was harassed and beaten up by neighborhood kids in the 50's 60's and even the 70's. Blacks killing Jews in Crown Heights. Jesse Jackson's infamous Hymie comment. Remember?

    There is no more victimized class than the Jewish people. Jews however do not buy into Victim Hood. Blacks did not either until Jesse J., Al SharpTon, Louis Farakhan and all the other hucksters joined by the democrats and President Johnson's welfare society started the whole victim culture and break up of black families.

    Jews are incorrectly viewed as running the USA and the World in a vast conspiracy. And the Saudis, Hamas and others are spreading hate and nazi propaganda.

    According to Islam Jews are impostors since Abraham Isaac and Jacob were all Muslims. Thousands of years before Islam existed. Logic need not apply.

    Jew hatred is instilled by Islam and Islamic culture. Radical or moderate. Muhammad hated Jews for rejecting him and that hatred is carried down by every faithful Muslim.

    Omar is only paying lip service and hiding her true hatred.

      She hates Jews, period. Any apology or backing down from her statements would be strictly political so as to keep her J.O.B. She hates Jews, that is what she has been all her life indoctrinated to believe, Jews are bad. Can she change? Sure, but it would take many years to realize any real change. Will political correctness keep her in power, is she a democrat? Yes, yes. The problem lies in giving her a pass, there will more of them just like her to follow. Some of my Minnesota 'friends' say they like her. Good-Buy to the US as we know/knew it.

    Once someone is a victim, even if it is fraudulent, then they believe they have a claim against anyone who can be blamed for their abuse. If you can get the majority to go along with it, which is easily enough accomplished, then you have an army ready to move and use violence against anyone or any property to get compensation. The minority (and it is a very small one) that understands liberty and objectivist philosophy will always lose against those odds.

    Congress critters protect their own regardless of the crime. I don't ever expect to see congress prosecute anyone unless the party investigated threatens the unconstitutional power of congress critters. Both parties are guilty.

    The House passed a "resolution" which is not exactly a resolution:

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/hous...

    Without naming Omar.

    "It's not about her", says a gesticulating Pelosi - "it's about white supremacy"..

    Frankly her arm movements are very annoying. Is she doing that to control her balance, or why?

    So she managed to turn this blasphemous woman's anti-Israeli charade into an issue of white supremacy.

    Nothing new in the liberal camp.

    Omar will continue her crusade. She got a slap on the wrist.

      And, I heard a "newscaster" turn the massive illegal border crossings, (the one they claim is not taking place) around. He said, 'Trump is causing the massive illegal border crossings to support his agenda'. Why do people allow this kind misinformation and BS to go on? Why don't we hold the media responsible for the outright lies they spew? And the new resolution on hate, Nancy believes in it, we need to stop the hate. She only forgot to add, "Except Trump, except Republicans, except Conservatives, except Deplorable's". That kid that delivered the sucker punch to the face, as his lawyer I'd just show video of Maxine Waters speech on getting in the faces of those you disagree with, stand in their way, block them, and Biden's punch 'em in the face" rant as a defense for the kids assault charge. Perhaps he should also be charged with hate.

        That was nowhere more obvious than in her stumbling speech after the washed down vote, defending Omar. I have not seen her for a long time (staying away from anyone on the left) so It struck me how irrelevant she has become. I don't give it a few months she'd be gone and the "new generation" taking over.

        The rookies are more belligerent every time they are being pushed back. To make things worse, the old ones like Sanders, Warren are backing them in the hope it'll buy them votes.

    When I saw that, my first thought was :They had ovens in Kenya too?
    The: The Nazi SS made it to Kenya and had camps there too?
    Then: This is complete, total, illogical BS, and yes, the dude is MANY bricks short of a full load, making him a perfect demoncrat...

    A liberal friend made the following observation, "Is it possible that AOC and Omar are actually Trojan horses planted by conservatives with the intent to make the Democratic party look foolish?" That seems to be the result, Are the Republicans really capable of something that Machiavellian?

    It's all about creating victimhood status - and no one does it more prominently than the Democrats. This despite Omar's repeated anti-Semitic remarks - remarks that when directly questioned she refuses to retract. She's Muslim through and through. The thing that is ridiculous to me is that even if she did come from Somalia - a wretched nation torn by war and bloodshed - it was the Muslims perpetrating most of the conflict there! Victim? Every Muslim sees themselves as a victim of any non-Muslim simply being alive and not under their control.

    "her experience was "more personal" than Jews whose parents survived the Holocaust." So does he mean that melanin-enhanced Americans cannot bring up what happened to their great-great grandparents? After all, they did not have a "more personal" experience.

      I, just the other day, heard a politician complaining about victim-hood, then he referred to himself as the son of a combat soldier. Apparently he thinks he should be privileged for his fathers service.

    Well, we're under attack. And, we're cucked. So, we elect people to destroy us from within. We like it because we're sure we're guilty.

    Good luck with that.

    If she wants to bring the laws, customs and attitudes of Somalia to the US, she should have just stayed in Somalia, where she would be more comfortable. I think she should be sent back.
