No wonder Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar are thick as thieves. Like AOC, Omar has gotten to be quite adept at representing herself as a strong, independent, powerful, stunning-and-brave warrior princess while simultaneously casting herself as a victim.

Her oppressor today? Why, none other than AIPAC and Israel:

Well, given the power she wields in Congress — she’s been instrumental in shifting the Democratic Party radically leftward with impunity — she’s kind of a big deal. And kind of a big anti-Semite.

If anything, she should be pleased with all the extra attention. She loves herself some spotlight.

Wrong again, Ilhan:

Ilhan’s not a terrorist, guys. She just has a lot of “compassion” for terrorists.

As repellent as that is …

It still doesn’t let Omar off the hook for her bigotry and anti-Semitism.

And yet … that’s exactly what Omar does regularly and is doing now.

Oh really?

What was that Omar said about turning a blind eye?

Because the Iran Deal wasn’t so much a “deal” as it was rolling over for Iran. And Yasser Arafat and the PLO weren’t interested in any “peace process” with Israel.

Omar knows that and doesn’t care.

Ahem:

She can’t stop herself.

All hard-Left, pro-BDS, anti-Israel organizations.

You first, buttercup.

That’s all it is. One gigantic, dishonest deflection.
