Dean James at Right Wing Tribune
Many Democrats in Minnesota are getting sick and tired of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s constant bashing of Jews and Israel and it looks like they are preparing to replace her with a different candidate in the next election- if she even makes it through her first term.
Dems that want to replace Omar have been meeting to discuss who they think should contest her nomination, The Hill reported.
It’s typcally difficult to replace an incumbent politician, even one as arguably polarizing as Omar, who in her first two months as a congresswoman has sparked contentious debates both as a country and within the party, The Daily Caller reports.
But even those who were deeply offended by Omar’s comments about Israel concede they have not yet found anyone to challenge her.
“There’s definitely some buzz going around about it, but it’s more a buzz of is anyone talking about finding someone to run against her than it is anyone saying they’re going to run against her or contemplate it,” Democratic state Sen. Ron Latz, whose district overlaps Omar’s federal constituency, told The Hill. “There’s definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her.”
Omar has provoked accusations of anti-Semitism against her with her chiding of Israel, suggesting at one point that it had “hypnotized the world” and prayed that Allah would “awaken” it. She divided the Democratic Party last week over a resolution that was first meant to condemn anti-Semitism but became a reprimand against virtually every form of discrimination.
“Our community is exasperated by Rep. Omar’s unfulfilled promises to listen and learn from Jewish constituents while seemingly simultaneously finding another opportunity to make an anti-Semitic remark and insult our community,” Steve Hunegs, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, said in a statement.
Let’s hope they are successful in their efforts to get that hate filled, anti-American lady the hell out of there!
