The Democratic Party, while not currently the biggest fan of capitalism, they are actually flirting with anti-Semitism.
Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar has caused some waves as of late with a number of anti-Semitic tweets and statements. Her most recent episode involves saying that being a member of congress, she “should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee.”
Of course, we all know what country she’s talking about: Israel. And we also know, given her previous statements, she’s not exactly the biggest fan of our close, democratic allies in the Middle East.
Our democracy is built on debate, Congresswoman! I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee. The people of the 5th elected me to serve their interest. I am sure we agree on that! https://t.co/gglAS4FVJW

Regardless, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi felt it necessary to actually defend Omar. She basically said Omar is unaware of what she’s actually saying. If that’s truly the case and Omar doesn’t understand words, why is someone that ignorant actually in Congress?
