IIhan Omar Accused Of Anti-Semitism In Michael Bloomberg Tweet (Or Something?)

There’s no doubt that Representative Ilhan Omar is anti-Jew and anti-Israel. She’s demonstrated it time and time again, and, if you’re palling around with CAIR, that notion just gets reinforced. If you were hanging with KKK members, speaking at their events, there’s a pretty good chance you’re a racist and bigot, right? But, what of this?

Ilhan Omar tweet called anti-Semitic ‘dog whistle’; tennis great Martina Navratilova among critics

A Twitter message posted Saturday by U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., has revived accusations of anti-Semitism against the freshman congresswoman and member of the far-left “Squad.”

The remark, posted ahead of Omar’s scheduled appearance at a CAIR (Council of American Islamic Relations) event in Washington, also drew a response from tennis legend Martina Navratilova, who accused Omar of “assigning labels.”

Omar’s defenders, however, claimed that charges of anti-Semitism against her were overblown, and that Omar’s critics were “obsessed with every word Ilhan says or tweets.”

Early Saturday afternoon, Omar reacted to a news report that said businessman Leon Cooperman had decided to back billionaire Michael Bloomberg for president. Both men are billionaires and Jewish.

And, the critics came out

“I suppose you think it’s all about the Benjamins,” wrote Michael Dickson, executive director of Stand with Us, a group that fights anti-Semitism. “We get your insinuation. True to form.”

“Omar very carefully making an anti-Semitic tweet with just enough vagueness to claim that ackshually [sic] she meant it was about the benjamins and not about religion,” Twitter user Josh Jordan wrote. “But everyone knows what she meant, which is why she continues to do it.”

“Generalizing is wrong no matter which ‘group’ of people one talks about,” Navratilova wrote. “It’s about assigning labels and I hate that.”

There are plenty more like that at the article and under her tweet. Some people defended her

“Oh for God’s sake, stop this ridiculousness,” wrote Linda Sarsour, a Palestinian-American activist and former leader of The Women’s March, who herself has been accused of anti-Semitism. “This obsession with every word Ilhan says or tweets is tired and it’s getting old.”

It doesn’t really help when you have a virulent Jew and Israel hater defending you, nor when Omar retweets Sarsour’s tweet. But, was Ilhan actually impugning something with her initial tweet, or was it just because both Bloomberg and Cooperman are billionaires? When I first read the article I was thinking “come on, people, not everything is a “dog whistle”. Let’s not do this same unhinged language police stuff that the Left does, where they proclaim that everything, no matter how innocuous, no matter how easy to understand, is said to be a dog whistle.” I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt, at least on this particular tweet, because you know we would be defending Trump and other Republicans when Democrats are twisting their words, right?

But, you would think that Omar and/or her team could perhaps defend her, right? Something simple like “it was about the billionaire, not the Jew). The closest it comes is

But, those aren’t the words of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. But then we get this, literally the next tweet in her timeline

So, suddenly, she’s going with the attack her attackers method, impugn them. Nowhere does she attempt to clarify her initial comment, which would be so easy, right? Nothing on Twitter, neither her main account or her more official one using her title. Nor her two Facebook accounts. Nor Instagram. Nor her official House page. So, is this a big old fat nothingburger, or was there a double meaning to her original tweet? Most people would defend themselves against a charge of anti-Semitism, especially when they have a history of anti-Semitism. She doesn’t really bother.

    It’s okay to hate on White Nationalist but omg if you call out Muslim activists who advocate for a culture that throws gays off buildings, beheads people and treats women as slaves…..well that’s just not okay for anyone to do.

    Everyone knows the corporate goons who support Democrats are fuking psycho. Nearly every one of the corporation’s cows to the leftists outrage culture while ignoring the right and a single one of their concerns.

    This is precisely why the right rose up in 2016 saying we won’t be forgotten. The left doesn’t get it, criticizes it and tells us to Shut the FF up which is why the right will rise again in 2020, this time with a significant amount of blacks and Hispanics along for the cause.

    Because everyone knows the left demands everyone get on the plantation and Shut the FF up because the outrage culture led by 5 percent of the USA population….crazy and insance bisexuals, Transexuals, feminists and gays are all about telling the other 95 percent of this country to go FF themselves.

    The left is terrified of their own allies. The right refuses to be bullied….Well except for our elected officials who have hidden in their offices for 3 years while Trump has fought this battle alone. FF the GOP. Seriously everyone of these senators should be primaried. They have done nothing but hide since voting to go into Iraq.

      Not all white Christians are white nationalists just as not all Muslims are terrorists.

      See the distinction?

      It seems as if you approve of white nationalism while condemning all Muslims. White nationalist policy is unacceptable in the U.S. Americans can think whatever they want but it’s a big mistake if white nationalists believe their dreams will be realized in policy.

      Let me repeat so it’s clear: Americans can think whatever they want but it’s a big mistake if white nationalists believe their dreams will be realized in policy.

      Americans will not tolerate it.

      White nationalism is as harmful to America as is Islamic terrorism.

      You express hatred toward gays, bisexuals and the transgendered, and by your support of white nationalism you express hatred toward Blacks and non-European immigrants. You express hatred toward Muslims.

      We understand that white nationalists are afraid of losing “their culture” and “unearned advantages” (white privilege) and see Mr. Trump as their savior. He’s a false god.

        You don’t know any Americans. All you know are other Commies.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Actually, communists can be Americans, just as white supremacists can be Americans.

          Most Americans despise the white supremacy ideology, so you’re a member of a distinct minority.

          Do you think Americans will submit to the white nationalists’ destruction of America?

          • formwiz says:

            They certainly don’t want what you have to offer.

            Actually, communists can be Americans, just as white supremacists can be Americans.

            No, Commies have only one loyalty and that is to Communism. They may try to call themselves Americans, but they hate everything about america and want to bring it down.

            Which is treason.

            Most Americans despise the white supremacy ideology, so you’re a member of a distinct minority.

            Apparently not, since even blacks and Hispanics are jumping on the Trump Train.

            Better get out of the way or it will squash you like the bug you are.

            4C Man,

            Do you consider most Dems to be Communists, therefore traitors?

      • Doom and Gloom says:

        Elwood The left hate white people. Period. Not all on the left but most. See the distinction.

        Women type all the time on twitter until it was banned that they hate WHITE MEN. Not that they hated Muslim Men or Black men or gay men. They hated white men.

        See the distinction?

        Ilan Omar is an antisemite. It is okay to be so in the USA but to be anti-terrorist which is the basis of CAIR and for which it stands is an egregious sin.

        CAIR…..US group CAIR named terrorist organization by United Arab Emirates

        See the distinction?

        And lastly, I said if you call out Muslim activists

        There is a big distinction between Muslims and Muslim activists who in the article were and are accused of anti-semitism and work for the destruction of another country.

        Incidentally, those that they would choose to destroy are WHITE MEN and WOMEN.

        See the distinction? Probably not. As you defend Muslims that hate Jews, Gay people and treat women with the utmost disrespect in Muslim countries around the world.

    The President actually made sense recently”

    *”I get a sense among certain young people on social media that the way of making change is to be as judgmental as possible about other people.

    “If I tweet or hashtag about how you didn’t do something right or used the wrong verb, then I can sit back and feel pretty good about myself because ‘Man did you see how woke I was? I called you out!'”

    “This idea of purity and you’re never compromised and you’re always politically woke and all that stuff, you should get over that quickly,” he said. “The world is messy. There are ambiguities. People who do really good stuff have flaws.”

    “If all you’re doing is casting stones, you are probably not going to get that far.”*

    • formwiz says:

      He’s not President. He’s just a vaid, discredited, out of work Negro who lives with his boyfriend.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        trump will be gone soon, and be just a vain (not vaid, unless you meant vaid), long time discredited, out of work racist married to a stripper (not that there’s anything wrong with strippers).

        • formwiz says:

          You’ve been saying that for 2 1/2 years and it hasn’t come true yet.

          And when was his wife a stripper? And there isn’t anything wrong with that if a woman has to make ends meet.

          Considering Kinky Katie spread herself around like apple jelly and advertised what a slut she really was, trying to drag Mrs Trump down to that level (and I still say those pix don’t look a bit like her) is a fool’s errand.

          And you’re just the fool to try it.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Melanija Knavs previously took off all her clothing for money. It’s not an insult. That’s just a fact. Why do you have a problem with that?

            Donald Trump said he didn’t have a problem with Mrs. M. Trump’s lesbianesque photo spread, so why do you?

        • Kye says:

          So your base instinct of disrespect wasn’t sated with your racy pictures now you need to call Melania a stripper? You really do respect women, as long as they’re Democrats, communists or Mohammadans. When it comes to immigrants like Melania you revert to your natural exploitative state of “fuk you”. Typical low class leftist.

          Epstein didn’t kill himself, ask Hillary!

  4. formwiz says:

    Do you consider most Dems to be Communists, therefore traitors?

    Not most.

    All.

  5. formwiz says:

    Melanija Knavs previously took off all her clothing for money.

    Taking off her clothes for money does not make her a stripper. If she did it for a medical text, would that be stripping?

    Kinda doubt it.

    It’s not an insult. That’s just a fact. Why do you have a problem with that?

    Donald Trump said he didn’t have a problem with Mrs. M. Trump’s lesbianesque photo spread, so why do you?

    Trump didn’t address it directly.

    My problem is this is being raised to make Kinky Katie and the rest of the Demos who are promiscuous and take advantage of their many sex partners look like they’re not so bad. Kind of like how the Lefties tried to bring up Thomas Jefferson when Willie was caught with his cigar down.

    Howsomever, you clearly do seem to have a problem with it or you wouldn’t bring it up.

    I thought all you Lefty hypocrites were non-judgmental.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      So only Con Men are free to insult First Ladies? At least our observations are true, whereas yours are lies.

      • formwiz says:

        Whom, exactly, did we insult?

        If you mean Mike, we waited until after he/she was out and all those pictures showing him/her with that projection in the front of his/her pants started showing up. I mean, even the Lefties eventually even started asking, “Who dresses her?”.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          The Lyin’ King typed another lie: …after he/she was out…

          You must be a fan of the lunatic Alex Jones.

          It’s a fact that Melanjia Knavs used to take off her clothes for money, and there is photographic evidence of her “posing” with another nude woman.

          There are even rumors, more relevant than your nonsense about Mrs. Obama, that Melanjia used to sell her “companionship” to men.

          • formwiz says:

            And you must believe everything the Lefty trash puts out. Trump won a libel suit against the London Daily Mail over the “escort” rumor.

            You see a lot of skin in fashion modeling. Even for Lefty causes (I’d rather go naked than wear fur), but Kinky Katie needed more guys and girls to get laid with her. Keep it up. I’ll bet she wasn’t the only cougar or bull dyke hitting on the hired help in Congress. And it will come out.

            Rumors are everywhere.

            The Hildabeast swings both ways and Vince Foster was the love of her life.

            Zippy loved the bathhouses in Chiraq and loved the “older” “men” in them. He’s terrified of Mike.

            You must be a fan of the lunatic Alex Jones.

            I meant out of the White House. I can only imagine what was going on inside your head.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      The Lyin’ King typed: Trump didn’t address it directly.

      To his credit, “Donald Trump responds to Melania’s newly-surfaced racy photo shoot” by defending his wife’s previous lesbian-themed session.

      from FOXNews.com: Asked about the photos, Donald Trump said: “Melania was one of the most successful models, and she did many photo shoots, including for covers and major magazines. This was a picture taken for a European magazine prior to my knowing Melania. In Europe, pictures like this are very fashionable and common.”

      That seems direct to us.

      • formwiz says:

        Only because you believe in global nonsense. All he said was pix like that are common in Europe.

        Another reason not to adopt their healthcare.

  6. formwiz says:

    Epstein didn’t kill himself, ask Rapin’ Don! His victim was 13.

    Prove it. Anywho, young stuff doesn’t seem to be his type.

    Just yours.

  7. Kye says:

    I assume Fredo has finished deflecting by using Melania and now wants to deflect the conversation by accusing President Trump of rape with zero evidence.

    Deflection, by definition, is a method of changing the course of an object, an emotion or thought from its original source. Psychological deflection is seen as a narcissistic abuse tactic used to control the mind and emotions of others.
    Nevertheless, psychological deflection is not only a narcissistic tool but also a coping mechanism strategy. Individuals , like Fredo who use it seek to mask their own impulses by denying their mistakes and projecting them on the people around them.

    Fredo and his co-conspirators in treason don’t hate Trump, they hate us. Trump is just in the way. Fredo and his ilk won’t admit it but they hate us and want us dead.

    When Fredo uses deflection via vulgar nude decades old photos of Melania and another woman in nude poses what he is doing is compromising their humanity for his own vile political purposes. Basically he is exploiting and abusing women, like his entire vile political party is want to do thinking it somehow harms Trump when in reality is shows how abusive the left really is. That is why it’s a matter of life and death for us to win in 2020. If we lose all the left has is hate and revenge and that means either total civil war or complete surrender of our rights to the despotic communist/Mohammadan horde.

    Trump 2020 Yes, it’s THAT critical!

      Gomer and Goober both hate the truth because it has a liberal bias. We do hate Trump because he’s an ass, thief, sex criminal, liar, cheat, crook and traitor. We are amazed and saddened that any American would defend him.

      The violent and consistent ideation of the Pyle klan is projection. Never forget, that with Con Men, it’s always projection. They can’t help but signal their intentions.

      No one forced Mrs. Trump to simulate sexual contact with another woman. No one leaked the photos. She was paid to do it. We wouldn’t bring it up except for the Pyle’s nasty comments about Mrs. Obama.

      If the GOP loses the House, the Senate and WH the right will be plagued with lower health care costs, no cuts to Social Security, comprehensive immigration reform, tax reform, coherent foreign policy, more support and protection for the working classes etc.

      If the far-right wants civil war because the Dems win, they will be fighting against the United States of America. It’s useful to have the far-right’s intent.

        Gomer and Goober both hate the truth because it has a liberal bias.

        If it’s the truth, it has no bias, it is objective. If you mean it favors one side or the other, that is not bias.

        Fascinating you don’t even know what truth is.

        All of which are unproven. And hating him because you think he’s an ass only shows how small you are.

        If, in fact, it was her.

        And you bring it up because Kinky Katie is only the tip of a very ugly Democrat iceberg.

        lower health care costs – you mean like we got with IdiotCare?

        no cuts to Social Security – no COLAs, either.

        comprehensive immigration reform – Brown Wave.

        tax reform – say good bye to your take home.

        coherent foreign policy – hand the world over to the Moslem crazies and the Commies.

        more support and protection for the working classes – 88 million out of work, farewell to those record-setting low black and Hispanic employment rates, etc.

        If the far-right wants civil war because the Dems win, they will be fighting against the United States of America. It’s useful to have the far-right’s intent.

    What are they gonna do? AR-15s at the polls? To a GOPher a Dem victory is never fair and square. Anyway, even when a GOPher wins the presidency, they whine that there were millions of illegal votes, all for the Dem!

    …you can run, but you can’t hide. Just another threat from the right-wing. The right continues their whining about a few confirmed voting irregularities in a RED STATE. Just because someone is registered in two states (e.g., Tiffany, Jared, Mnuchin, etc) doesn’t mean they vote in two states. It’s not even illegal. Deceased people still on the rolls is not evidence of cheating. And how do you know if the few cheaters voted for Dems?

    Nearly 23,000 of the 24,000 “irregularities” were dead people on rolls (2000+) or registered in more than one state (22,500).

    • formwiz says:

      Funny how removing those dead people or the ones registered in more than one state are subsequently termed “voter Suppression”.

      I thought the dead were already pretty well suppressed.

      Considering how the Demos hire thugs to intimidate people at the polls, it may be a good idea.

      No, you whine about how the Beast won the popular vote, as if that means something. We just point out how many of those votes were fraudulent.

      Just another threat from the right-wing. The right continues their whining about a few confirmed voting irregularities in a RED STATE. Just because someone is registered in two states (e.g., Tiffany, Jared, Mnuchin, etc) doesn’t mean they vote in two states.

      7 million fraudulent votes is not a few.

      And, if were talking Democrats, it almost always does. Seems like the Demos make a career of busing in “voters” from out of state. And I want to hear how loud Jeffery L Keene squeals if the KY governor is reversed.

      It’s not even illegal.

      Voting in more than one state isn’t illegal? Actually, if you move out of state, you must do an address change and remove your name from the old state’s voter registration rolls. That’s the law, so I guess maybe it is illegal.

      Son of a gun.

      Deceased people still on the rolls is not evidence of cheating.

      Tell it to Richard J Daley.

      And how do you know if the few cheaters voted for Dems?

      7 million cheaters voted for the Hildabeast. 7 mil is not a few.

    Do you have any evidence to support your claim of 7 million cheaters, Edward Sibley Dutcher.

    Edward Sibley Dutcher, it’s not illegal to be registered in more than one state, so either Edward Sibley Dutcher is lying or mistaken. Which is it, Edward Sibley Dutcher?
