The more we read of Ilhan Omar’s timeline the more convinced we are that she shouldn’t tweet.
Like, at all.
Or, if she needs to tweet perhaps she should avoid topics that make her appear to be … well, a teensy tiny bit anti-Semitic.
Case in point.
.@IlhanMN is right: Israel is not a real democracy.
Israel is like the south before 1963: millions of people under Israeli control are denied the right to vote, speak freely or assemble because of their ethnicity. It's a democracy for Jews only. That's not a real democracy.

Israel is not a real Democracy.
And did he really just compare Israel to the south before civil rights?
Surely Ilhan doesn’t actually agree with this, right?
Many of them truly know this, but don’t want to accept it. In the same way many Americans knew separate yet equal was immoral but remained silent until brave few were silent no more.
They can attack, spin my words and vilify me, but they will not succeed in silencing me! https://t.co/JSwhoSQuGF

Sweet baby corn.
She went there.
And Dave Rubin was more than happy to educate Ilhan.
You don’t know history or present and are a raging Jew hater. 20% of Israeli population is Arab. 0% of Palestine population is Jewish.

And poor Bernie.
@SenSanders wouldn't acknowledge the falsehood in her tweet since he can't acknowledge the falsehood of his own Neo-Marxist system of economics. And people wonder why Vermont is so expensive. #Vermonter

Someone has to pay for Bernie’s three houses, duh.
Bernie's endorsed someone far more antisemitic than Omar could ever be. He doesn't care.

I think we should be careful here. In this Tweet anyway she is crtiticizing Israeli policy (inaccurately). I think just correcting the facts is the right approach here.

Fair, but it doesn’t really seem like Ilhan wants to be corrected or educated.
Even though she just got schooled.
