the united states has caused significantly more terror worldwide than the taliban and hamas combined. this shouldn't even be a controversial statement, since it's a fact and yet the democrats chose to pile on ilhan omar for even asking for accountability. some democracy we are.
Imagine if we lived in a world where the headline was:
"Member of Congress demands answers from State Department for victims of war crimes"
New: Fellow Democrat and dean of the Minnesota delegation, Rep. Betty McCollum, responds to controversy around Rep. Ilhan Omar's tweet.
Ilhan Omar is very good, actually.
Ilhan Omar must be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee. She should have never been appointed to this Committee in the first place. https://t.co/NCOuJkhdq6
The reason they are trying to stick it to Ilhan Omar like this is because they know how dangerous it is once people who hold elected office speak frankly about how the atrocities that our government enables.
"There are a lot of killers. What? You think our country's so innocent... Take a look at what we've done too."
- Donald Trump, Feb 2017
Dear Republicans ginning up faux outrage over Ilhan Omar pointing out the ICC is investigating war crimes by the U.S. & Israel, pls watch this:
it's so demented when you realize the republicans stood up more forcefully for Marjorie Taylor Greene than democrats have for Ilhan Omar
Let's say Ilhan Omar had 'equated' the U.S. and Hamas - she didn't! - but, from a GOP point of view, so what?
Aren't they the party of free speech and the right to offend? Don't they hate PC 'snowflakes'? And 'cancel culture'?
Ah, the hypocrisy, the sheer hypocrisy...
Ilhan Omar hates America, she needs to GO! If you hate America, just LEAVE!
While Ilhan Omar fights relentlessly for human rights, members of Congress in both parties amplify far-right hate and faux outrage that put the safety of Rep. Omar and her staff at risk, just to appease foreign policy hawks. We stand with @IlhanMN
Plain & Simple: Ilhan Omar is an Anti-Semite.
This clip of me explaining that Ilhan Omar isn't an anti-semite & that calling her that perpetuates an anti-semitic trope conflating being Jewish with supporting Israel is from over 2 years ago. Sadly, it's as relevant today as it was then. #IstandwithIlhan https://t.co/6MGQX35HBK
Congressional Progressive Caucus comes out in support of Rep. Ilhan Omar: "We urge our colleagues not to abet or amplify such divisive and bad-faith tactics," @PramilaJayapal
It’s BLACK LIVES MATTER till the black person is a Muslim
This woman’s life is in danger because of white liberals and conservatives alike
What has she done? Called out the U.S military industrial complex for its contribution to crimes against humanity!
I STAND WITH ILHAN OMAR
Ilhan Omar is the most anti-American Member of Congress in US History.
She's an anti-Semitic terrorist sympathizer!
Breaking #FoxNews Alert : Top Dems rebuke Ilhan Omar for US, Israel comparison to terrorist groups
Ilhan Omar is 100% correct. The fact that it’s even controversial is a testimony to how propagandized Americans are.
“How dare Ilhan Omar compare Hamas to the US” yes I agree the US’ wanton violence is categorically incomparable to the worst things Hamas has ever done or ever could do
the entire western professional media and political class acts all shocked and dismayed when people like ilhan omar tell the truth about US empire bc as chomsky says they literally can't comprehend applying the principles they apply to others to themselves
House Democratic leadership puts out a statement attacking Rep. Ilhan Omar, saying her remark "foments prejudice and undermines progress toward a future of peace and security for all."
Ilhan Omar needs to decide. She’s either with Hamas or she’s with us. And if it’s Hamas, she must be removed from Congress.
Democrats in Congress are condemning Ilhan Omar for condemning apartheid in Israel and systemic terrorism against black people in America.
With ‘allies’ like them, who needs enemies?
ilhan omar didn’t go far enough. america (and by extension israel) have committed more atrocities in their own countries and abroad than isis ever did x1000000
rips into fellow Democrats for taking @IlhanMN
's comments on the US and Israel's potential war crimes out of context. Omar has repeatedly had her comments on foreign affairs distorted by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. https://t.co/xNESHfWf8B
The attacks on Ilhan Omar serve to distract from the fact that both the United States and Israel decided NOT to become part of the International Criminal Court.
Other states who did not join include:
And Russia withdrew its signature in 2016.
So, has Ilhan Omar been stripped of her committee assignments yet?
Dem leaders welcome her to clarify her anti-Semitic remarks about the US and Israel being just like Hamas.
She's an anti-Semite. This has been known since the 'hypnosis' tweet.
Wow Ilhan Omar refers to Israel as a democratic country with a well-established judicial system. https://t.co/MA84HQrPLQ
The thing about Ilhan Omar is that she has a *very* different perspective on American empire than the “moderate” former CIA Democratic politician type, and she’s not shy about saying so.
