Ilhan Omar Hit with House Censure Effort over ‘Pro-Genocide Jews’ Remark – EVOL

Radical Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is facing a censure resolution after she referred to Jewish students who are not anti-Israel as “pro-genocide.”

Omar made the remarks during a recent visit to Columbia University in New York City.

In response, Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE) announced he is introducing the resolution against Omar on Tuesday.

The NYC Ivy League school has been the flashpoint for nationwide demonstrations on college campuses.

Students have set up tent encampments to supposedly protest their universities’ financial ties to pro-Israel companies.

Last month, Omar’s daughter was one of more than 100 Columbia students and young adults attending its sister school, Barnard College, who were arrested over their encampment, as Slay News reported.

The Marxist “Squad” member visited the demonstration on April 26 in a show of “solidarity” for the pro-Hamas protesters.

“I actually met a lot of Jewish students who are in the encampment, and I think it is really unfortunate that people don’t care about the fact that all Jewish kids should be kept safe,” Omar told Fox 5 New York during her visit.

“We should not have to tolerate antisemitism or bigotry for all Jewish students, whether they are pro-genocide or anti-genocide.”
