WASHINGTON – Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) seems to have deleted yet another anti-Semitic tweet earlier this morning that stated ‘Make Gas Chambers Great Again’.
Omar, along with her appointment to the Foreign Affairs Committee, drew the ire of House Republican leaders because of multiple anti-Semitic tweets that she has since deleted.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) slammed Democrats in Congress for a recent congressional vote that she said “enabled” anti-Semitism when lawmakers didn’t specifically condemn recent tweets from Omar.
“It is absolutely shameful that Nancy Pelosi and Leader Hoyer and the Democratic leaders will not put her name in a resolution on the floor and condemn her remarks and remove her from the House Foreign Affairs Committee,” Cheney said. “Those people who won’t condemn it are enabling it.”
House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-NY) said that he will not remove Omar from his committee over the anti-Semitic tweets since they have been deleted.
Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar is deleting her anti-Semitic tweets.
But deleting tweets doesn’t change that she still supports the anti-Semitic BDS movement to boycott and delegitimize Israel.
