The Democratic Party suffered tremendously in recent months, after newbie congresswoman Ilhan Omar was outed over anti-Semitic views. The entire party in the House couldn’t even reprimand her properly, or condemn anti-Semitism. It has left a permanent black mark on the party—with Omar free to do as she pleases. But now it looks like more than few Democrats are getting their revenge.
The Democrats have pretended to be the party of progressivism and equality for generations. They accuse Republicans of not caring about the challenges minorities face in America. Liberals go on and on, telling minority groups that their only chance at success is by voting Democrats into office.
You’d think, then, that a group like the Democrats would be disgusted by any acts of racism, bigotry, and hate. After all, they consistently accuse our president of being a bigot, simply for wanting to protect our Southern border.
Should there be a Democrat who expresses ugly, bigoted sentiments, the left would immediately condemn them.
Last month, the nation was shocked at how House Democrats handled their new congresswoman, Ilhan Omar. This Muslim refugee was outed for frequently expressing dislike and out-right hatred for Jews and the nation of Israel. On numerous occasions over the years, she has made it clear she holds anti-Semitic views.
House Democrats did not reprimand her. In fact, they devolved into chaos by just trying to pass resolution condemning anti-Semitism (the final resolution doesn’t even mention it). This episode taught Omar that because she is a black, Muslim woman, she can get away with anything.
She went on to insult the 3,000 lives lost on 9/11, by saying “some people did something.” Perhaps that was the straw and broke the donkey’s back. Because now Democrats are turning on her. They are doing something nearly impossible for leftists to do: rejecting money.
Democrats in the House of Representatives have started to reject and refund campaign donations from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over Omar’s anti-Semitism scandal and her recent trivialization of the 9/11 terrorist attacks…
Rep. Lucy McBath (D-GA) left a $2,000 contribution from Omar off its quarterly fundraising report, and, when pressed by the Free Beacon, admitted that they left the money off the report because they decided to reject it…

Several other Democrats have received checks from Omar. It looks like they are simply waiting to decide whether or not they will return them. Chances are, they will follow their colleague’s lead and reject the money.
You know something’s up when Democrats refuse to take free money! This is the party of Bernie Sanders, after all, the man who wants to rob the rich to give to himself.
Democrats never give up a chance at getting cash. Yet after a series of events that expose Omar’s true colors, even these leftists can no longer stomach it. Omar represents everything Americans have come to worry about foreign Muslim immigrants.
Muslims don’t have to be anti-Semitic or anti-America. But groups like CAIR—who support known terrorist the Muslim Brotherhood—do not embrace our values. Rather, they try to ignore what happened on 9/11 and share a deep dislike of Jewish people. Omar is an ally to this group, which is why perhaps she had expressed these unpopular and unacceptable views.
Democrats gave her a pass at first, because they were afraid of appearing sexist, racist, or “Islamophobic.” They knew that liberal websites would attack them for simply confronting Omar over her statements. They’ve pushed identity politics for so long, they can’t appear being mean to a minority!
So Ilhan Omar got away with spreading anti-Semitic statements. But when she slammed America, trivializing 9/11, she went too far.
Don’t be surprised to see more Democrats turning their backs on her in the coming months. Like AOC, Omar seems totally unwilling to admit her failings. Not once has she apologized for her anti-Semitic statements or her insult of 9/11. Come 2020, the Democrats better think long and hard over whether or not they want this woman to stick around.
If they do, they might be giving up her seat to a conservative. Let’s hope so.
