Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) just received an arrest notice, and it has rocked the mainstream media. Liberal reporters and the Democratic Party didn’t see this one coming.
Ironically, the Palestinian government Rep. Omar so strongly defends has banned a local pro-LGBT group from conducting any political activity in the West Bank; demonstrators, including Omar if she attended a rally, could also be arrested.
The hypocrisy is astounding. Omar has the gall to condemn Israel — the only nation in that region to consistently support free speech — yet she takes up for the Palestinian Authority (PA) instead, which runs in contrast to her ‘progressive’ values.
One has to wonder how long Omar can keep up the facade. If she’s going to continue supporting the PA, while also spouting anti-America, anti-Israel rhetoric, eventually her antics are going to wear thin — possibly even with her constituents.
Only time will tell. However, one thing is clear: Omar and other members of the so-called ‘Squad,’ such as Reps. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), are caught in a bind.
People should call out their hypocrisy and demand an explanation. As the Washington Examiner’s Brad Polombo puts it, they “have come down firmly on the side of Palestine in the conflict, falsely painting Israel as their ‘oppressors,'” an ironic twist to be sure.
