Ilhan Omar Introduces Pro-BDS Resolution In House, Compares It To Boycott Of Nazis

Now, the text of the resolution as submitted doesn’t mention Israel or the BDS movement, but, come on, the lady hates Israel and Jews, and the BDS movement is, at its heart, anti-Semitic, and the way she introduced it should tell you where she’s going with it

Ilhan Omar invokes boycott of Nazi Germany in resolution supporting Israel boycotts

Rep. Ilhan Omar introduced a resolution in support of the Boycott, Divest, Sanctions movement saying it was in a long tradition of U.S. boycotts.

“Americans of conscience have a proud history of participating in boycotts to advocate for human rights abroad including … boycotting Nazi Germany from March 1933 to October 1941 in response to the dehumanization of the Jewish people in the lead-up to the Holocaust,” Omar said in the resolution introduced Tuesday.

The 1930s boycott by the U.S. Jews of German goods came during the lead up to Holocaust starting in part with Germans boycotting Jewish businesses.

Omar announced her resolution Tuesday in an interview with Al-Monitor.

“We are introducing a resolution … to really speak about the American values that support and believe in our ability to exercise our first amendment rights in regard to boycotting,” the Minnesota Democrat. “And it is an opportunity for us to explain why it is we support a nonviolent movement, which is the BDS movement.”

Omar said she plans on introducing the BDS resolution this week around the same time House Democratic leaders plan on voting on a resolution condemning the movement.

A resolution condemning the movement is not the same as stopping the movement, especially when the BDS movement is inherently anti-Jew, just like its cofounder. It really never was about being against the actions of the state of Israel, it was about hating Jews and wanting them eliminated, just like they want Israel eliminated. And, in context, Omar introducing this is just more of her hatred towards Israel and Jews, especially with her like-minded buddy Rashida Tlaib co-sponsoring it. Per the text of the resolution, she’s comparing Israel and her citizens to those of Imperial Japan during WW2, Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union (which so many Democrats supported, especially during the Reagan era), and apartheid era South Africa.

(Washington Examiner) Rep. Lee Zeldin criticized Rep. Ilhan Omar for supporting a movement he said was linked to Hamas after she introduced a resolution supporting the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement.

“My colleague who just spoke used the frequent use of the words ‘honestly’ and ‘honest.’ Let’s just get to a lot of what is left out,” the 39-year-old New York Republican said Wednesday, referring to Omar, who had just given a speech during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing supporting a resolution promoting the BDS movement. “The BDS movment has not distanced itself from Hamas, a designated foreign terrorist organization. BDS supporters individually are not distancing themselves from Hamas either.”

The Jewish representative then went on to explain that a senior Hamas official has called for the death of all Jews last week.

Zeldin continued to criticize the resolution after the hearing in a statement: “[T]here are Members of this House who continue to prop up the BDS movement and blame Israel for all of its challenges. Israel is our best ally in the Middle East; a beacon of hope, freedom and liberty surrounded by existential threats. Shame on Rep. Omar for bringing her hateful twist of this reality today to the committee and this chamber.”

With the introduction of the resolution, will Israel PM Netanyahu allow Omar and Tlaib into Israel?

(Times of Jerusalem) On Wednesday, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar announced that she will be visiting Israel and the Palestinian territories in the coming weeks.

Omar will be accompanied by Rep. Rashida Tlaib. The two freshman congresswomen have become a focal point of the Jewish community after expressing numerous controversial comments regarding Israel and several statements that were deemed anitsemitic.

Israel has a law the grants the government authority to ban pro-BDS activists from entering the country. The law has been used sporadically over the past two years.

A government official told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s National Security Council was reviewing the issue and would offer him recommendations on how to respond.

Most likely, the two will be allowed access to Israel, particularly since they are, for good or bad, they are elected federal Representatives. Also, Netanyahu and his people understand this would get them criticism in the press (which tends to be Israel/Jew hating Progressives). Instead, Israel will allow them to do their thing, and make sure all their actions are on video, especially the anti-Israel, anti-Jew, pro-Palestinian terrorist stuff. It’s the old meme about not interrupting your enemy when they are making a mistake. You can bet the video will show up for viewing.

    President Donald Trump on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN): “There’s a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her brother. I know nothing about it. … I’m sure that somebody would be looking at that”.

    Bwaha. Lolgf. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

    J Epstein on President Donald Trump (R-NY): “There’s a lot of talk about the fact that he raped his daughter. I know nothing about it… I’m sure that somebody would be looking at that”.

    • formwiz says:

      I know nothing about it

      IOW Zip.

      So, tell us, how does it feel to hit the jerk trifecta now that the House has given up impeachment?

      But I see you’re going for number 4 (and 5), trying to push the faint connection between Trump and Epstein and still pushing the idea there’s an incest connection.

      So you’re going for the sure are sick and stupid today prize.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        You win the “sure are sick and stupid today prize” more often than jimhoft wins the “stupidest man on the internet” award.

        There’s more evidence that Don Raper molested his daughter than that Representative Omar married her brother as Don claimed.

        Don Raper and Pedo O’Epstein were buds back in the day. There are even videos of trump groping women at Mar-a-Lago with Epstein present.

        Lame Duck Don will cut a deal just after he loses the election, handing the reins to Lame Duck Pence.

        An aside: Are cons alarmed at the very obvious deterioration in Trump’s speech patterns when compared to his 1990s interviews?? He used to be clever and articulate (still a pig), now he’s neither (but still a pig). Organic brain disease? Drug damage? He is unfit to be president.

          Care to produce said evidence?

          And they weren’t for long; BTW Trump never took any flights with Epstein.

          Lame Duck Don will cut a deal just after he loses the election, handing the reins to Lame Duck Pence.

          And where do you get this idea? Chlamydia Harris, Gropin’Joe, Fauxcahontas, Bernie? Who can beat him?

          Seems that even Fake News is conceding Trump’s approval has gone up, as has the number of people who don’t think he’s a racist. Looks like The Doanld won the weekend.

          Since you didn’t have the guts to answer the lead post, I’ll repeat what I said here:

          Tom Friedman, of the Gray Lady, wrote a column about Democrats coming up to him saying, ‘Trump’s going to get re-elected, isn’t he?’.

          When he asked why they felt that way, here were some of the answers he got:

          “I was shocked that so many were ready to decriminalize illegal entry into our country.”

          “I was shocked at all those hands raised in support of providing comprehensive health coverage to undocumented immigrants.”

          “I was shocked that so many candidates in the party whose nominee I was planning to support want to get rid of the private health insurance covering some 250 million Americans and have Medicare for all instead.”

          And these are Democrats, NY Democrats, at that, talking.

          Something else too good to keep,

          House Demos have been talking to Jake Tapper about the weekend and here’s what they said:

          2/ “The president won this one,” said House Dem 1 of the Trump v Squad (AOC, Tlaib, Omar & Pressley) showdown. “What the president has done is politically brilliant. Pelosi was trying to marginalize these folks and the president has now identified the entire party with them.”

          3/ Another issue: what are Dems focused on? Is it what will help the class of 2018 (largely more moderate than the Squad) get reelected?
          Dem Rep 2: “The president’s words and actions speak for themselves. We need to focus on the issues that got them here: jobs, health care…”

          4/ “…instead of the issues the president brings up deliberately. Anything that takes away from bread and butter issues is playing into his hands.”

          5/ Other House Democrats are conflicted about having to defend the Squad given things they’ve said and done. House Dems cited: talk of supporting challengers to incumbent Dems in primaries, AOC’s use of the term “concentration camps,” anti-Semitic comments by Tlaib & Omar.

          Whole thing is right here.

          So it looks like you’ve got a very divided party (contrary to what Tapper tells the Lefty rubes) that is getting its ass kicked by Trump on a near-daily basis.

          The delusion, each time it disappears, just gets stronger for you the next time, doesn’t it?

          At this point, he is not losing. He is WINNING!

          Are cons alarmed at the very obvious deterioration in Trump’s speech patterns when compared to his 1990s interviews?? He used to be clever and articulate (still a pig), now he’s neither (but still a pig). Organic brain disease? Drug damage? He is unfit to be president.

          Where is this deterioration? Care to produce it?

          And, if he’s unfit, so are Pelosi Galore, Gropin’ Joe, RBG, and a host of black Democrats (Guam will tip over, There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust).

    Prior to Dec 7th rightwing American industrialists supported Nazi Germany
    Prescott Budh (W’s grandfather) was almost indicted for continuing to trade with Germany
    Rightwing America never boycotted Nazis

    • gitarcarver says:

      Prescott Budh (W’s grandfather) was almost indicted for continuing to trade with Germany

      Factually false.

      Rightwing America never boycotted Nazis

      Not only is that one of the dumber things you have ever said, the fact is that while the US was looking to ramp up war production, it was left wing unions and socialists like yourself that sought to bring production down if not to a halt.

      But if you want to talk about things, why did Joe Kennedy (and his sons) actively fight against civil rights legislation as proposed by conservatives in the late 1950’s?

      Why do people of your ilk hate minorities and don’t want equal protection under the law for all people?

    • formwiz says:

      Bunny suit is desperate in the john.

      Right wing America fought to save this country.

      Left wing America fought to save the Soviet Union and Communism.

    Porter any first hand reports from the yuge
    Trump rally ? Don’t tell us you missed it !!

    • formwiz says:

      Bunny suit’s in another john.

      And, yes, it was yuge, compared to the dozens at most Democrat rallies.

      They yelled, “Send her back”.

      You’re losing.
