You know, we thought we had seen just about everything from the Left and their attacks on the Covington Catholic students, but we really weren’t expecting “they were taunting 5 Black men.” Here’s Rep. Ilhan Omar defending the racist, homophobic Black Hebrew Israelites who taunted the Covington Catholic HS students over the weekend:
-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://t.co/fG8AUCuDTr https://t.co/bOA6yFsIjW

Did she watch any of the videos? Does she have any comment on what the Black Hebrew Israelites were saying to the boys? Does she care about any of it?
Far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) defends the Black Hebrew Israelites, which even the Southern Poverty Law Center says is a *hate group*
The group called the Covington Catholic HS boys:
-"Child molesting f**gots"
-"Dirty a*s crackers"
-"Future school shooters"
-"Incest babies" https://t.co/9C3M0lKpww

I was too generous before. These are outright lies by a member of Congress who's already smeared Lindsey Graham as compromised with no evidence after less than a month in office. I'm sure mainstream media folks will hold her accountable. Facts First! https://t.co/0tz1ch9EmB

There is a lot of misinformation and outright #FakeNews in this tweet, but perhaps most egregiously: How nice of sitting U.S. congresswoman @IlhanMN to casually characterize members of the Black Hebrew Israelites—an overtly racist, supremacist cult—as merely "5 Black men." https://t.co/5eqPdfRkOT

Antisemitic Dem Rep now using her platform to spread lies about kids.
1) The 1 boy who yelled that did not attend Catholic Covington.
2) This is a lie. It was the black activists who were taunting the kids with homophobic and racist smears.
3) His statement matches the video. https://t.co/UsLVhG7bJW

I don't know about the first claim. The second claim is ridiculously, manifestly, embarrassingly false. Shame on you. https://t.co/EHHN6eHTKP

-The video clearly shows the Covington kids dissociating themselves with the other teenager and clarifying he wasn’t with them.
-The Black Israelites yelled homophobic/racist slurs at the kids
Interesting we’re talking about this instead of Phillips now, isn’t it? https://t.co/uCGhzeABOt

Democrats protecting homophobic hate groups.
Is this not proof they are being corrupted? https://t.co/HMKvqUZb3G

Spreading outright lies knowing that if anyone calls you out you’ll be able to blame sexism and bigotry is the thing for freshman Dem congresswomen I guess https://t.co/db69W0db7h

To paraphrase her buddy Alexandria Ocasio Cortez:
Guys, take it easy, it's more important to be morally correct than factually correct https://t.co/W3h3XYqMBU

And on the plus side, she did find some Israelites to defend:
