Congresswoman Omar's hatred for Jews now on daily display
Congressman Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitism is so virulent that it's on full display just about every day. The Daily Wire reports:
On Sunday, after Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) displayed her blatant anti-Semitism by tweeting that GOP support for Israel was "all about the Benjamins," and followed by accusing AIPAC of paying American politicians to support Israel, bipartisan condemnation of her remarks erupted, although no leading Democrats said a word about their colleague's vile rhetoric.
("All about the Benjamins" refers to Benjamin Franklin's face on $100 bills.)
GOP voices expressed disgust, including former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley, House minority leader Kevin McCarthy, Congressman Lee Zeldin, Senator Ted Cruz, and the Republican Jewish Coalition.
Democratic voices were few and far between. Chelsea Clinton, whose husband is Jewish, is an exception, though her parents remain silent as of this writing.

Democratic leadership remained silent, as they have for months as rampant anti-Semitism is spreading through the party like cancer.
I get the feeling Omar likes this attention and may feel empowered as a female Muslim member of Congress. That seemingly sweet smile isn't so sweet.
She's got hate in her heart and has no business being anywhere near the seat of power in this country.
Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi put her on the Committee for Foreign Affairs. Some pressure has been applied since Omar's appointment last month to have her removed. Please contact your representative and Speaker Pelosi's office to demand that Omar be taken off this committee.
