Omar Is Under Fire Yet Again — This Time After Calling Jewish Stephen Miller a White Supremacist

Jonathan Ernst/Reuters

Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is facing intense backlash for calling White House senior adviser Stephen Miller a white supremacist despite him being Jewish.

The lawmaker was responding to a story that alleged Miller may become the next head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, pushing back against the rumors and claiming that he should not be given such a powerful position.

However, many fired back at Omar, pointing out that Miller is Jewish.

Here are some reactions to her tweet:

“I see that the head of the Farrakhan Fan Club, [Rep. Ilhan Omar], took a short break from spewing her usual anti-semitic bigotry today to accuse a Jewish man of being a “white nationalist” because she apparently has no shame,” said Donald Trump Jr.

“A yes, Judaism, the first sign of Nazi white supremacy,” tweeted Daily Wire contributor Harry Khachatrian.

“Very on brand for notorious Jew-hating bigot [Rep. Ilhan Omar] to be smearing and attacking a Jewish man like Stephen Miller,” said Arthur Schwartz.

“During my time in Congress before [Rep. Ilhan Omar] got here, I didn’t once witness another Member target Jewish people like this with the name calling & other personal attacks. In 2019 though, for [Omar], this is just called Monday,” said Representative Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.).

“I have known Stephen Miller thru work for many years,” said filmmaker Adelle Malka Nazarian. “He’s in no way, shape, or form a white nationalist. The fact is, Ilhan is a liar & this anti-Semite’s attempt to label a Jew, whose relatives fled an actual white supremacist (Hitler), in this way is a form of delegitimization.”

The lawmaker has faced repeated backlash recently over her alleged anti-Semitism, as IJR has previously reported. Her comments became so frequent that the House passed a resolution condemning anti-Semitism and bigotry.

However, Omar did not lose her committee spot and it is uncertain if her new comments will affect that in any way.

If the House has passed a resolution condemning anti-semitism and bigotry, then all we have to do is wait for their reaction. Or are they too busy wasting time on being anti-Trump to notice? They made the resolution, and it is time to follow through with disciplinary reaction, in other words–be the adult here

So what, Omar? What I find “disturbing” is that Omar hasn’t yet been fined by the FEC for the $5,000 check she wrote to herself from her campaign funds; the $15,500 checks Rep. Tlaib wrote to herself from her campaign; the rather lengthy list of financial “problems” AOC tried to hide from the FEC; but got caught; OR the O’Rourke campaign money spent to feed and transport Illegal Aliens around El Paso, TX. This is a non-story.

She really does have a death wish, doesn’t she? May her wish come true.

This whole article is total nonsense! The very first exposure of Miller to the world was as a white supremacist connected to Steve Bannon/Breitbart & Sessions.

Anyone who has read anything about Miller knows that he is quite capable of doing some quite damaging things to our society. Between Miller & McConnell, it would be difficult to tell who is more dangerous to our institutions, Constitution, rule of law, maybe our society as we know it.

If you don’t see that, you are confused.

This HORRIFIC being Must GO!! This Omar Creature knows exactly what she’s doing!! I have a difficult time to even see that she literally received over 60,000 “Likes” on her statement, but then again, I never thought I would see the day when a party of our own government actually attempted a “Coup” and tried to take down a President that “We The People” voted into office!!
