Predictably, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) has declared its support for Muslim anti-Semite, Rep. Ilhan Omar, for her recent controversial remarks comparing the United States and Israel to terrorist organizations.
“Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is a valued Member of the Congressional Black Caucus Family, she represents a strong voice on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs,” the Caucus declared in a statement on Wednesday. “Furthermore, we appreciate her clarification of her recent remarks… [t]his is another example of Republicans taking it out of context to shift the real attention from the abhorrent, disrespectful, and intemperate remarks of members of their own Conference.”
The remarks in question came in a tweet last week in which Omar wrote, “We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.”
Meanwhile, the CBC reportedly has been blocking freshman Republican Rep. Byron Donalds from joining the caucus. Perhaps he isn’t anti-Semitic and anti-American enough.
