Anti-Semitic Dem Rep Attacks Covington Boys With Lies And Hate

Becca Reese


Ilhan Omar✔@IlhanMN

-The boys were protesting a woman's right to choose & yelled “it’s not rape if you enjoy it”
-They were taunting 5 Black men before they surrounded Phillips and led racist chants
-Sandmann’s family hired a right wing PR firm to write his non-apology https://rewire.news/article/2019/01/22/white-washing-white-supremacy-media-rushes-to-excuse-covington-catholic-students/ …


There are not words for how sickening it is that a freshman Democrat is so openly bigoted and racist.

You're right, becca, there are not words for how sickening it is when anyone is so openly bigoted and racist. I didn't see anything in Rep. Omar's tweet that points to anti-Semitism so I was puzzled by your title. Then I read anti-Muslim responses from Stan:

And from mrskjun:

mrskjun(9)

Or throwing them off a building.

So I assume there must be an anti-Semitism comment in the link that has prompted Becca, Stan, and mrskjun to target her for her religion. But no, there isn't even a comment in the link from her. It is just a very thorough retelling of the incident.

So now I ask myself why did the three of them automatically attack her religion because they didn't like her tweet? With no reason to believe that Rep. Omar supports stoning, beheading, and throwing people off buildings and with it being irrelevant to the OP, why did they go there?

You wonder why we think you hold bigoted views. It's because things slip out all the time. I don' think you're even aware of it. You hear Rep. Omar's name and your brain goes to her religion and you don't like that a Muslim is in Congress.

To help illustrate why your responses came from a place of bigotry, let's consider an exchange where you can clearly see the bigotry:

President Obama hosted a State Dinner at the WH.

What did he serve, fried chicken and watermelon?

Now let's apply it to what you did in this thread:

Rep. Omar lied about the Covington incident:

She's anti-Semitic.

She'll want to stone and behead them next.

She'll want to throw them off a building.

You immediately targeted her religion. You ridiculed her even though you know she doesn't support those things.

I hope you understand now why we think some of your comments have a bigotted and racist undertone.

Omar's anti-Semitism is well known. She's also a homophobe.

The above are not exemplified in her most recent barrage of hatred towards white, Christian children.

She is accusing one or more of the Covington teens of saying something pretty horrific, and if she has no proof, I hope they sue her for libel.

KETCHUP, Mayflowers.


High School boys were accused of all sorts of horrible things--being nazis, KKK members, hating Native Americans, just everything else just BECAUSE THEY WERE MALE, WHITE, and CATHOLIC, and protested killing innocent life. Standing there waiting on a bus minding their OWN BUSINESS.


WHAT'S okay to assume for one group isn't okay to assume for the other?

There are none so blind...that they don't realize the irony and instead attack instead of thinking.

You believe they were attacked for being white Christians so you turn right around and attack Omar for being Muslim. Last I looked this wasn't a Catholic/Muslim controversy. And nowhere in her comments do you see that she attacked them because of their religion. There's nothing to even assume that she's ant-Catholic. If you don't want to be labeled an anti-Muslim bigot, then attack her based on what she tweeted instead of using stereotypes about believers of Islam.

This thread is about Omar. Why would I want to rehash the incident when there's been ten threads and everyone started by a liberal has been removed? This morning I wrote a long post about the incident on a thread in the Kitchen Table and that thread was removed for the second time. So I'm done arguing about who was right and who was wrong at this point.

THIS is what you wanted to discuss by starting this thread:

Because
she deceived people before she got elected and now she's letting her
anti-Semite flag fly. Has nothing to do with the fact she's Muslim, so
your angle here is just going to keep failing.

Now, she is
spreading horrible lies about CHILDREN and should in the very least be
censured if not told to resign. These are American citizens she is
attacking. This goes well beyond spewing a dangerous ideology.She
is targeting BOYS and I'm sickened that a sitting Representative in
Congress is using her platform to attack American children.

Omar should be ordered to give the Covington teens an apology- a public apology-along with formally retracting all of her lies which she attacked them with.

Or, she should then be censure. Deleting that tweet is not enough.

What does it tell you when the correct information is out for DAYS and she posted this attack anyway? What does it tell you that Omar deleted her tweet without a retraction or apology?


We Americans should not tolerate any anti-Semite in our Congress, let alone anyone who would attack children and spread vile lies about them.

It's in the MAGA hat thread. There's nothing to show where the video came from so you'll have to ask the person who posted it if it was authenticated.

Thank you for explaining why you targeted Omar. So you don't believe her anti-Semitism has anything to do with her being Muslim?

Your feelings about her dishonesty doesn't change the fact that Stan and kjun responded to a post about the boys by targeting her religion, which has nothing to do with her tweet. And you liked those posts-- the ones about stoning, beheading, and throwing people off buildings.

Her god is named Allah. Surely she has the right to "invoke" her god.

The reason that tweet is considered anti-Semitic is the word "hypnotized." Not because it criticizes Israel or "invokes" Allah. I learned that in about 3 minutes on Google just now and all sources I found concur on that.

Omar defended herself from those accusations by alleging that they are based on a stereotype of what Muslims believe.

If I'm reading Wikipedia correctly Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) is a movement that outlines strategies to be used to encourage *Israel* to adhere to its international obligations (and from my perspective, basic humanity).

Not all Israelites are Jewish. And not all Jews live in Isreal. So to equate criticism of Israel as a nation with hatred toward Judaism is misguided in my opinion.

As to why/if she would lie about supporting that movement, I certainly can't answer that.

But when Omar tweets out LIES about children, attacking them, they're cool with it.

It's why you can never take anything they say seriously. They are controlled by Trump hate and will enjoy throwing children under the bus if it means a score for "their side".

Omar attacks children? Is that OK? Depends. Does she hate Trump? She does?

Well then, it's fine and dandy to attack children.

Since entering Congress this month, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has found herself indamage control mode over her record of anti-Semitism. Yesterday, she managed to bring more heat on herself by smearing the Covington Catholic High School students who were harassed by the racist Black Hebrew Israelites and Native American activist Nathan Phillips at the March For Life. Omar is now running away from the latter, but sticking by the former.

While Omar has been in office for less than a month, she has been surrounded by numerous controversies. The freshman congresswoman defended anti-Semitic statements, such as ones invoking Allah to expose Israel’s “evil doings” and she has come out in favor of the boycott and divestment from the state of Israel. She also claimed Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina was “compromised” without providing any evidence

Omar: Spare The Rod For ISIS Recruit, Not Covington Teens

Becca Reese23 minutes ago

Ilhan Omar who harshly condemned white, Catholic teens for
"smirking" and gasp! doing the tomahawk chop (ps, Omar, never watch
professional sports!) has asked for leniency in sentencing a Minnesota
man who intended to join ISIS to kill people.

“I’m certainly not being persecuted for my faith. I was certainly
not entrapped,” Daud stated during the proceedings, according to the
Associated Press.
“I was not going there to pass out medical kits or food. I was going
strictly to fight and kill on behalf of the Islamic State.”

Fortunately, the judge was having none of it from our newly-ensconced
ISIS sympathizer in Congress, and sentenced this would-be murderer to
30 years.

I hope every single day is hell for him.

She did not attack them because they are Catholic. Post her tweet before you make accusations. I'm sure one of your RW sources has it. You've only posted your own typed words:

The boys were protesting a woman's right to choose & yelled “it’s not rape if you enjoy it”
-They were taunting 5 Black men before they surrounded Phillips and led racist chants
-Sandmann’s family hired a right wing PR firm to write his non-apology

"Kentucky Catholic Bishop: Trump’s MAGA Hats Are Not ‘Pro-Life’

Lexington’s Bishop John Stowe said Covington Catholic students can’t be “pro-life” while supporting a president who “denigrates” immigrants and refugees.

The Rev. John Stowe, the bishop of the Diocese of Lexington, said that being “pro-life” also means valuing the lives of immigrants and refugees ― something he said he strongly believes Trump has failed to do.

“It astonishes me that any students participating in a pro-life activity on behalf of their school and their Catholic faith could be wearing apparel sporting the slogans of a president who denigrates the lives of immigrants, refugees and people from countries that he describes with indecent words and haphazardly endangers with life-threatening policies,” Stowe wrote in an op-ed for the Lexington Herald-Leader on Wednesday.

He said he is “ashamed” that the students’ actions have contradicted the goals of the March for Life, the massive annual anti-abortion rally the teens were in D.C. to attend....

...Stowe said that he didn’t want to place the blame entirely on the teens or engage in a discussion about the context of the video. Instead, he said he wanted to point out that a MAGA hat has no place at the March for Life.

He said that American Catholics’ anti-abortion advocacy has become separated from the “even more basic truth of the dignity of each human person.” Catholics need to take other issues into account before deciding whether to support Trump, he said.

“We cannot uncritically ally ourselves with someone with whom we share the policy goal of ending abortion,” the bishop wrote. “While the church’s opposition to abortion has been steadfast, it has become a stand-alone issue for many and has become disconnected to other issues of human dignity.”...

...If the anti-abortion movement seeks to make abortion “unthinkable,” Stowe wrote, it should also be championing “deep changes in society and policies that would support those who find it difficult to afford children.”..."

Omar attacked white, Catholic, pro-life boys, going right for their beliefs and after 3 days, when FACTS were known, she continued to spread lies.

But she's got all the compassion in the world for her fellow Somalians who volunteered to kill people for ISIS.

Becca herself claims this was her tweet:

The boys were protesting a woman's right to choose & yelled “it’s not rape if you enjoy it”
-They were taunting 5 Black men before they surrounded Phillips and led racist chants
-Sandmann’s family hired a right wing PR firm to write his non-apology

From those three sentences Becca claims that Omar attacked them because they are white and Catholic. Nothing of the sort happened. What is really going on here is Becca only sees Omar's race, religion, and political beliefs so she's trying to demonize her by claiming she's a racist and anti-Catholic.

Omar didn't have her facts straight on the first two accusations. She should have apologized for spreading falsehoods. Perhaps some of the good Catholics on this board can do the same.

When people accuse someone of anti-Semitism what exactly do they mean? kiun said that Jews were offended by Omar's criticism of Israel's overreaction against Gaza, does this mean that all Jews support Israel and the occupation or that Jewish and Israeli are the same thing or by equating the two things Israel can claim anti-Semitism at any criticism?

Supporting Palestine is far from the evil it is made out to be above.

Being Muslim does not automatically make anyone anti- Jewish or anti-Semitic.

Ilhan Omar criticized the behavior of youths who were seen to be intimidating an old Native American, she was not alone in this, but she is a Democrat and a woman, so outcome the Stone tactics to vilify her.

Because she didn't attack them for being white or Catholic. However, the first responses to the OP from trump supporters mocked her religion. Since Cait, elvis, Becca, Stan, and you either posted or liked those comments, you either don't seem to think that mocking her religion is bigotry or you don't care that it's bigotry. Yet Becca is screeching about her "anti-Catholicism".

Maybe reading what a Jew has to say about Omar's smear will help. The Left seems so keen on "dog whistles" that it's surprising they don't know what Omar was really saying. Or, maybe they do and just don't care.


https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/21/opinion/ilhan-omar-israel-jews.html


Perhaps Ms. Omar is sincerely befuddled and not simply deflecting. Because sentiments like these, once beyond the pale of our public discourse, are being heard with greater frequency and volume these days, allow me to explain why this Jewish American, and almost every Jewish American I know, found her words so offensive.


The conspiracy theory of the Jew as the hypnotic conspirator, the duplicitous manipulator, the sinister puppeteer is one with ancient roots and a bloody history. In the New Testament, it is a small band of Jews who get Rome — then the greatest power in the world — to do their bidding by killing Christ. Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor, speaks to the Jews about Jesus in the book of John: “Take him yourselves and judge him according to your own law.” But the Jews punt the decision back to Pilate: “We are not permitted to put anyone to death.” And so Pilate does the deed on their behalf. In the book of Matthew, the implications of this manipulation are spelled out: “His blood is on us and our children,” the Jews say — a line that has been so historically destructive that even Mel Gibson cut it from his “Passion of the Christ.”


n the two millenniums that followed, even after 1965, when the Catholic Churchformally disavowed the belief that the Jews killed Jesus, this was the template for the anti-Semitic conspiracy: the ability of this tiny minority to use its wiles and its proximity to power to con others into accomplishing their evil ends. It has led to countless expulsions, murders, massacres and pogroms throughout Europe and elsewhere


The Jewish power to hypnotize the world, as Ms. Omar put it, is the plot of Jud Süss — the most successful Nazi film ever made. In the film, produced by Joseph Goebbels himself, Josef Süss Oppenheimer, an 18th-century religious Jew, emerges from the ghetto, makes himself over as an assimilated man, and rises to become the treasurer to the Duke of Württemberg. Silly duke: Allowing a single Jew into his city leads to death and destruction.

After seeing the final cut of the film, in August 1940, Goebbels wrote in his diary: “An anti-Semitic film of the kind we could only wish for. I am happy about it.” And no wonder: It premiered at the Venice Film Festival, where it received the Golden Lion Award. By some estimates, more than 20 million people saw it.

Since then, the myth of the wily Jewish manipulator of those in power continues to persist in various forms. During the Iraq War, it became common to blame Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz and Doug Feith — Bush administration figures who happened to be Jewish — for a military campaign that had been ordered by George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld. In the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump blamed “globalists” with names like Lloyd Blankfein and George Soros for America’s economic woes.

Omar's ignorance of the Catholic faith shown full when she maligned the Catholic teens and misrepresented their faith. They were not protesting a woman's right to choose. They were there to support LIFE.

She has no idea what any of those boys thinks about Roe v. Wade and legal abortion. Conflating the two was yet another rush to judgement on her part.

She still hasn't apologized and shows no willingness to discuss the issue with the Catholic boys.

I'm sure there are Christians and Catholics in her state. The fact that she would so easily malign them is frightening.

What Omar has done by attacking American boys and making false accusations of the most heinous kind, as a sitting Representative and elected official, is reprehensible.

She has abused her position and office, and should be censured.


But, who are we kidding, right? This is a Leftist world we now live in. Omar is another black woman to commit a very serious infraction as an elected official and if another black woman can foment the assassination of a sitting President, Omar is sure to not only escape being held responsible, she'll be regarded as a hero.

Now, Omar has no proof whatsoever, but she tweeted it out as FACT. Further, she thinks she's speaking for Americans who agree with her, so she never took responsibility for that libelous tweet either.


OMAR: My tweet was just an opinion based on what I believe to be visible to me, and I’m pretty sure there are lots of Americans who agree on this.

You know what's really scary? This BDS-supporting, anti-Israel bigot is on a committee which votes on things like funding Israel, our staunchest ally in the Middle East.

Omar has spoken in support of the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement against Israel before, and was recently assigned a seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, where she will vote on issues of US foreign policy and foreign aid, including that to Israel. Crucially, her committee may soon vote on a bipartisan bill that would write into law a 2016 agreement between the US and Israel guaranteeing the Jewish state $38 billion in military aid over 10 years.

This is the most incredible twist I have ever witnessed, Becca is using bigoted, misogynistic language to complain about misogyny. Not only that, she is working hard to make the offenders the victims. By changing the emphasis she is attempting to have Omar the enemy of Jews and Catholics, and this is just not true, and now she is adding gays to justify a remark about throwing gays off a roof.

It seems to me that Omar is against the oppression of people by other people, so she takes the side of Gazan's and Native Americans, of course, this makes those doing the oppressing hopping mad. Typically, rather than try to understand there is an attempt to find dirt on whoever brings this injustice to our attention and this aided and abetted by a compliant media looking for a story.

"Perception is everything."

No it's not. The truth is everything. Sometimes our own biases can shade our perceptions.

anti-Semitism is a very serious charge. There is a burden of proof on the person making such an accusation.

So again, without resorting to opinion pieces or recycling of the tweet already presented:

Can anyone provide any evidence that this woman in anti-Semitic, anti-catholic, or homophobic? ETA: Also accepted, evidence that she is anti-white.

I accept that the tweet looks bad given the "hypnotized" reference, and I accept (with reservation) her explanation that she wasn't thinking in the terms that others assumed. The word itself is fairly common and I've definitely heard it used by pundits and laymen in other contexts.

Her support of Palestine I *DO NOT* accept as anti-Semitism. Her call for sanctions against Israel I *DO NOT* accept as anti-Semitism. Israel and Palestine are earthly institutions and being supportive or critical of them is not the same as hating Jewish people.

Without further evidence of anti-Semitism I am inclined to think that she's not.

Ilhan Omar Days Without Saying Something Anti-Semitic: Zero

Becca Reese4 minutes ago

Reset the clock. Again


https://www.dailywire.com/news/44130/stop-treating-ilhan-omar-child-her-anti-semitism-ben-shapiro



Now, appearing alongside fellow anti-Semitic Rep. Rashida
Tlaib (D-MI), who herself recently accused American supporters of Israel
of dual loyalty to Israel
and is, along with Omar, a supporter of anti-Semitic boycott,
divestment and sanctions from Israel, Omar reached for the anti-Semitic
lever once again. First, Omar smiled when an audience member yelled, “It
is about the Benjamins.” Then, she stated, “What I’m fearful of –
because Rashida and I are Muslim – that a lot of our Jewish
colleagues…go to thinking that everything we say about Israel to be
anti-Semitic because we are Muslim….So for me, I want to talk about the
political influence in this country that says it is okay to push for
allegiance to a foreign country.”

This is, once again, anti-Semitism. It sets her "days since open
anti-Semitism" calendar back to zero; for the record, she was only up to
18 days.

Suggesting that Jewish Americans are pushing for “allegiance” to a
foreign country, or that American supporters of Israel are doing so, is
a vicious conspiracy theory and a vile smear. Jewish Americans by and
large support Israel not out of “allegiance” to Israel but because
Israel protects victimized Jews all over the world, represents the sole
liberal democracy in the Middle East, and provides valuable strategic
partnership to the United States. But according to Omar and other
anti-Semites, the only reason for American Jews to support Israel is
because they are part of a secret club, disloyal to the United States
and loyal only to the ethnic tribe
.

It’s not like Omar has been hiding the ball here. After her faux
apology for the “all about the Benjamins” tweet, she stated just last
week that she wasn’t apologizing for anti-Semitism – she was only
apologizing if her comments offended people. Which is like calling a
woman a whore, then apologizing for how the slur made her feel. The
problem, as it turns out, is that Omar is a consistent and vicious
anti-Semite.

Stan, the Left was immediately vocal over Steve King and demanded he be punished, which he rightfully was. Omar is still serving on a committee where she gets to make decisions about a country and people she so obviously hates.

All one need do is see how she attacked a Jew- Elliott Abrams- when she had the chance during his hearing, and it was vicious. Invoking the "Jews lie" trope repeatedly.

She hates him because he helped save Central America from communism and her support of the murdering dictator, Maduro, is truly sickening.

Elliot Abrams is a war criminal, being Jewish is incidental, unless you, that is you personally, believe that all Jews are war criminals.
