There was some stunning television Tuesday night as Rep. Ilhan Omar broke with her “sister” in Congress and urged colleague Rep. Rashida Tlaib to take responsibility for her attempt at historical revisionism and the Holocaust on the Skullduggery podcast.
OK, not really. Omar was a guest on Chris Hayes’ show to once again talk about the tweet that President Trump sent out after she told a meeting of CAIR that 9/11 was when some people did some things. Yeah, let’s rehash that again; she managed to get a censure of her anti-Semitic comments turned into a resolution denouncing Islamophobia, so she might as well run with it.
"It's not only an attack on myself but it becomes an attack on all Muslims, and it becomes an attack on women of color, and it becomes an attack on immigrants and refugees."

"It is time for us to make sure we don't allow for them to use any misunderstanding there might be to divide us. That we collectively work together against the collective hate that is coming from the right wing and white supremacy."

So we’re just not going to talk about Israel hypnotizing the world and her support of the BDS movement?

Blah blah blah … look at me, I’m a victim, blah blah blah

She's not a victim, she's an agitator. If she can't figure out why she's being criticized for her comments, she needs to resign. Shouldn't have to explain it to her. Especially when we all know , she knows better.

She doesn’t know better; as Speaker Nancy Pelosi explained, she just has “a different experience in the use of words.”
Actually she's just a bad person

"I'm a minority so I am entitled to never being criticized". There, I paraphrased it for you.

Because being critical of someone's speech is incitement apparently.

Criticizing your own words and views is not an attack. It’s free speech.

Next time someone says they don’t like my sweater I am going to point out that they have offended clothes-wearing people everywhere

Nobody is Anti-Muslim, she's anti-Semitic.

They're trying to criminalize dissent and opposition. These people are dangerous to our freedom of speech. These are the racist ramblings of a nut job.

@chrislhayes do you want to pretend you’re a journalist? Bring on some balance to your show. What are you afraid of? Honest debate? Or is there just not space in your world for dissenting opinions?

She’s a lunatic. But, please keep putting her on TV. Then ask yourselves why Trump won in a landslide in in 2020.

If you just can’t get enough of Omar talking white nationalism, CNN published her op-ed earlier Tuesday:
