MSNBC’s Chris Hayes declared on Twitter last night that Ilhan Omar is “is one of the most consistent voices for human rights in the Middle East across the various governments and regimes”:
I’d say Omar is one of the most consistent voices for human rights in the Middle East across the various governments and regimes. https://t.co/Jvm3chf6Ui

EVERYONE INTO THE POOL!
As you might imagine, conservatives had a lot to say about this one:
I'd love to hear hear @IlhanMN address the treatment of Palestinians by Hamas. I have yet to find any comment on it. Ever.

“A garbage take” puts it mildly:
What a garbage take. If Omar were a voice for human rights, she’d be criticizing Hamas or the PA for their role in perpetuating violence against their own people. But it’s always about the Jews. Always. Wonder why. https://t.co/obJv5pH9ib

Let’s add her silence on Iran and Turkey to the list:
You are not a serious person.
Hamas has been assaulting/killing Palestinians for almost a month. Omar has said nothing.
What has Omar said about Iran's human rights abuses?
What has she said about the PA's abuses?
What about abuses by Turkey?
etc etc. https://t.co/v75Z8EGsWe

Let me know when she says a single thing about Hamas. https://t.co/yhKT8G2mEF

Not a joke:
Has she ever spoken out for the Iranian people and condemned the human rights abuses perpetrated daily by the regime there? Has she said a word about Hamas attacking protesters and those who support them? This is a joke, right? https://t.co/XITTTdrdOF

And maybe Chris forgot Israel is also in the Middle East:
Especially when she accuses Jewish Americans of dual loyalty and Tweets anti-Semitic garbage amirite. https://t.co/cf7GyWL9VC

We won’t forget:
She’s also consistently anti-Semitic. Don’t forget that one. https://t.co/pswnP7s7fC

Not just stupid, “incandescently stupid”:
I can barely even mock something this incandescently stupid
They live in the Middle East
She hates them https://t.co/9zyCBGGs6y

She is consistent about this:
Her anti-Semitism is consistent, yes. https://t.co/ldtqXwxzPP
