Somali-American congress Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn sparks outrage from all sides. Amy Klobuchar talks pride of Somali community.


Everyone is being called to account but where is Amy Klobuchar on the issue ? She talks about the pride of the Somali community and this is what they sent to congress to represent them.
No one will escape by remaining silent on Omar's comments.
Amy Klobuchar as a Minn. democrat senator should be out loud and clear with a message and show some leadership. She is a 2020 hopeful. Lets see if she does what's right.


Ilhan Omar's AIPAC tweet sparks condemnation, including from Chelsea Clinton

"When someone uses hateful and offensive tropes and words against people of my faith, I will not be silent," Rose said in a statement. "... At a time when anti-Semitic attacks are on the rise, our leaders should not be invoking hurtful stereotypes and caricatures of Jewish people to dismiss those who support Israel.

Noticing AIPAC and its money is not anti-Semitism.

Omar is an anti-Semite. those that deny she is are either ignorant of her statements or share her beliefs.

Is water wet? She just spoke the truth? AIPAC is a lobby group that bribes US politicians to be pro-Israel.

The Congresswoman will get no criticism from me.

Nothing in her statement was inaccurate.
And it is sure isn't anti-Semitic.

Not, anti-Semetic. No offense, but people should know that Anti-semites likes to use overreactions by others to condemn as proof of the "Jewish conspiracy", so now your helping anti-semites spread their message by criticizing something that clearly isn't anti-Semitic. She may have anti-Semetic views but this isn't it Chief.

Omar's comments equating politicians' support for Israel with being bought off by American Jewish money are most certainly anti-Semitic.

I don't agree with Rep Omar's comments, but criticism of Israel or its lobbyists is certainly not anti-Semitic. People need to distinguish between criticism of a government and criticism of a race or religion. If I speak out against Putin and Russian meddling in our elections, that does not make me "anti-Russian" or "anti-Russian Orthodox".
