Minnesota Democrats Reportedly Want Rep Ilhan Omar Out – She Blames Trump

by Molly Prince


Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar blamed President Donald Trump on Sunday after reports members of the Minnesota Democratic Party are considering removing her from congressional office for her repeated anti-Semitic statements.

Minnesota Democrats are reportedly dismayed that Omar has made a string of bigoted comments about Jews, which have received massive condemnation from both sides of the aisle. Consequently, members of the state party are looking for someone to contest her nomination in 2020 and run a different candidate in her place.

Rather than blaming the Minnesota Democrats, Omar focused the backlash on Trump’s 2017 executive order, which has been referred to as a Muslim ban. The executive order suspended U.S. entry of those whose counties do not meet adjudication standards under federal immigration law for 90 days and included exceptions on a case-by-case basis.

Omar, along with fellow Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, became America’s first Muslim congresswomen when sworn into office in January. Both congresswomen’s time in office has been embroiled in allegations of anti-Semitism.

Omar has defended the anti-Semitic statements, such as ones invoking Allah to expose Israel’s “evil doings,” and she is on record stating that Israel is not a democracy. She also gave an interview to a host that referred to Israel as the “Jewish ISIS” and mocked how Americans speak about al-Qaeda and Hezbollah.

Both Omar and Tlaib waited until after they won their congressional elections to reveal their support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish Israel by economically depriving the country for its alleged mistreatment of Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip and West Bank. The Anti-Defamation League describes the movement as “the most prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence.”

BDS has metastasized through college campuses, initially promulgated by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), the movement’s most visible arm. SJP has been linked to the Islamic terror group Hamas, according to The Washington Free Beacon. Moreover, the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, the American umbrella group of the BDS movement, has reportedly given money to terrorist organizations like Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

Omar announced in February that she is scheduled to raise money with the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) only a week after she used an anti-Semitic trope to claim Israel has paid for GOP support.

    Good she needs to be removed please do it asap

      Rep Omar and Rashida Tlaib should have been suspended
      after making Anti AmerIcan & Anti Semitic remarks. The
      Palestinian government worked side by side with Hitler.
      And Omar has been donating money to Cair and Hamas. What is going on with this weak Democratic party and Speaker Pelosi. Look at her nephew the Governor of California that doesn’t have
      the guts to stand up against illegal immigration laws and allowing
      human trafficking and drugs to go on in our state. The list is too long to name.

    2. The trojan horse is a true statement. Destroy us within. The demos
      are nuts and full of hate. They supported her and gave her money
      for her campaign . Now it;s going to bite them in the ass. Speaker
      Pelosi is also at fault with her stupid comments on Trump. Her
      nephew Gov. Gavin is running California politics. There
      are laws against illegal drug and human trafficking but instead Gavin
      goes against the law, if that was the average American we would
      be put in jail.

    The Democrats have NO-ONE to blame but themselves. First they set up a district that is now a majority muslim. Then they support her when running. THEU ELECTED HER THEY NEED TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO DEAL WITH HER. PRESIDENT TRUMP HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.

  4. Russ Crouch

    President Trump did not make her be what she is. He did not vote her into office. Blame who you will, but you ran your mouth, you have shown the country what you are. ALL of the blame is yours.

    1. Adrienne

      Amen. Why wait until Nov 2020 election? Get Omar out now!

  5. If he is to blame: Yay President Trump for MAGA!

  6. Susan Brotherton

    If Trump is to blame: Yay President Trump, you are MAGA!

    The whole problem with this is “Minnesota Democrats are reportedly dismayed.” I am so sick of this politically correct ‘allegedly’ and now ‘reportedly’ crap. They either are or they are not. Are they or are they not?

  8. Kassi Englehart

    Our state officials are in place to embrace the Constitution and the laws of our country. Can NOT serve our country and want to change her to be like the homeland of their ancestors. They are sheep in wolfs clothing….more like a dog in wolfs clothing because she is soooo obvious!

  9. Kassi Englehart

    Of course she does…they ALL blame Trump! Crazy liberal!

  10. EAB

    Josephine, Patricia, & Donna I totally agree with you!

  11. Josephine

    Both Omar and Tlaib need to be removed from Congress now not in 2020. They can do too much damage if we wait til then. And we need a law or resolution to keep all Muslims out of the federal government forever.

    1. Carla

      Exactly NOW NOT LATER… YESTERDAY 😂😂😂

    2. Bill

      True and why should citizens of The United States of America pay this fool a dime?

  12. Donna

    I whole heartedly agree !!!!!!! Get rid of every radical Muslim that’s in America !!!!!!

  13. Patricia

    Ilhan Omar and her friend Rashida should both be deported because they’re both Anti-American and Anti-Semitic
