Ilhan Omar may finally have discovered how far is “too far.”
The one person who could end her career finally got fed up.
And Omar instantly regretted telling a lie that could finish her political career for good.
Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has made national headlines for her anti-Semitic lies and speeches.
She shocked and horrified a majority of Americans when she accused Jewish Americans of holding a duel loyalty to Israel.
At first, Nancy Pelosi and other Democrat leaders tried to explain away her comments as being misunderstood.
But now even Chuck Schumer has called out Omar for her blatant anti-Semitism.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“Without naming her specifically, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer criticized comments Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar has made about members of Congress who support Israel, during his Monday speech at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference.”
“These age-old anti-Semitic tropes are false and we must renounce them. You can be a Jew and care about Israel and it does not make you any less American. You can be a Jew and lobby for Israel and it does not make you any less American,” he stated. “You can be, all at once, completely Jewish, completely pro-Israel, and completely American.”
Omar responded to this criticism by lying.
Omar’s comments have also begun to infuriate the deep pocket heavyweights in the party that could provide the financial and institutional muscle to launch a strong primary challenger against her.
But it keeps getting worse for Omar.
House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel issued a strong statement against Omar, calling her comment a “vile anti-Semitic slur” and “deeply offensive”.
He also left the door open for her to be removed from her seat on the Foreign Affairs Committee.
Unfortunately for Omar, some of her claims may prove to be prophetic.
She recently sent out a tweet saying, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby”.
Offered a chance to explain, Omar upped the ante by saying she believes the American Israel Public Affairs Committee is paying U.S. politicians to be pro-Israel.
This has infuriated some of the Democrats’ top donors, potentially putting her at odds with mega donors like George Soros, Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer, all of whom are Jewish.
For example, one major Democrat Party donor describes himself as “a one-issue guy, and that issue is Israel”.
Omar’s controversial statements open her up to a credible, well-funded primary opponent next year, and some top Democrat operatives already appear to be floating the idea.
Other Democrats are privately urging Omar to tone it down and be more like socialist Bernie Sanders, who is Jewish, but has been able to adroitly work his way through the issue by sounding “contemplative and intellectual”.
As more and more Democrat leaders and mega donors turn against Omar, it will only be a matter of time before she finds herself facing a well-funded, highly organized Democrat primary challenger.
