(Tea Party PAC) – You can really tell where someone’s loyalties lie when it comes to the death of an Islamic terror mastermind.
This is certainly no different when it comes to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who never really bothered to hide the fact that her loyalties do not lie with the United States and our Constitution in the first place.
While the likes of Jackie Speier and Pete Buttigieg blamed Trump for the death of the 176 people aboard an aircraft that completely incompetent Iranians mistook for an incoming missile after attacking bases in Iraq hosting US and coalition forces (which turned out to spur no military retaliation), Omar was whining about recently imposed sanctions on a country that has been murdering its own citizens.
“This makes no sense. Sanctions are economic warfare,” she wrote on Twitter Wednesday. “They have already caused medical shortages and countless deaths in Iran. You cannot claim to want deescalation and then announce new sanctions with no clear goal. This is not a measured response!”
Yeah, that’s what’s wrong here. The sanctions.
Red State opines:
Omar has never met an Islamic or socialist dictator she doesn’t want to fluff and give a pass to (unless they are Sunni Saudi Arabia for obvious reasons). She notably decried sanctions on Venezuela and tried to blame their economic collapse on them. The only problem was that said sanctions had not even got into effect yet when the socialist paradise descended into a hellscape.
But there’s one country Omar absolutely wants to sanction into the ground and it just happens to be the only Jewish state in the world. Weird how her ire continually manages to find it’s way to the Jews, right?
The mainstream media were obviously never going to ask her about this discrepancy, but a reporter for Townhall managed to pin her down. Omar’s answer is a word salad of stupid and bigotry.
I asked Rep. Omar what her response is to those calling out her support for BDS against Israel while criticizing sanctions against Iran. She said it's "very different" bc BDS is by the people, while Iranian sanctions is by a gov to create maximum pressure.https://t.co/3TVNGFpWy1 pic.twitter.com/e2kC3qfllD

Ilhan Omar isn’t even trying to hide the fact that she’s completely opposed to sanctions against all manner of backwards, violent, brutally oppressive country who sponsors terrorists that target Americans, but she’s entirely in favor of sanctioning one of our most important allies, and the nation that all the nations Omar does not want to sanction regularly express a desire to completely eliminate.
As Red State concludes:
There’s one obvious distinction between the former and the latter and Omar’s anti-Semitism is laid bare by it. It’s a travesty that those supposedly tasked with holding politicians accountable, i.e. mainstream “journalists,” continue to ignore and obfuscate for her terrible ideology.
