In an interview this weekend House Speaker Nancy Pelosi put her stamp of approval on Rep. Ilhan Omar’s remarks equating the terrorist atrocities of Hamas to Israel and the United States.
We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity.
We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.
— Rep. Ilhan Omar (@Ilhan) June 7, 2021
CNN’s Dana Bash claimed that Omar “clarified” her remarks and said that she was not trying to equate the groups.
Bash noted Pelosi and other House Democrats rebuke of Omar’s statements drawing false equivalencies between Islamic terrorists groups and the United States.
However, once Pelosi was pushed, she immediately went on the defensive in support of Omar. Nancy is desperate to protect the shrinking majority she holds on to in the House, so alienating even one member could result in serious political consequences for the House Speaker.
“We did not rebuke her. We thanked, acknowledged that she made a clarification,” Pelosi declared.
Ilhan Omar equated the U.S. and Israel with terrorist groups.
Nancy Pelosi says Omar “is a valued member of our caucus” and admits Democrats did not “rebuke her.”

“Congresswoman Omar is a valued member of our caucus.”
Ilhan Omar’s ‘Squad’ members came to her rescue as Republican and Democrat lawmakers alike bashed the radical Islamic Congresswoman for her consistent Semitic remarks, even claiming at one point Israel “hypnotizes the world.”
Pretty sick & tired of the constant vilification, intentional mischaracterization, and public targeting of @IlhanMN coming from our caucus.
They have no concept for the danger they put her in by skipping private conversations & leaping to fueling targeted news cycles around her.

Freedom of speech doesn't exist for Muslim women in Congress. The benefit of the doubt doesn't exist for Muslim women in Congress. House Democratic leadership should be ashamed of its relentless, exclusive tone policing of Congresswomen of color.

The House Progressive Caucus even released a lengthy statement in support of Omar’s comparison to US and the Taliban.

Nancy Pelosi is now forced to deal with the harrowing reality that her party is swiftly veering off to the Far-Left of the political spectrum. Moderate Democrats are being weeded out and radicals are taking their place. While Republicans gain steam, the “progressive” wing of the Democrat Party ramps up their efforts to introduce the most radical Left legislation America has ever seen.
Recent polling shows the ‘Squad’ and other progressives initiatives to defund the police, diminish support for Israel, blindly support terrorist groups in Palestine, the devastating border crisis, constant “woke” scolding, and COVID tyranny are all contributing to the Democrats’ downfall in the 2022 midterms. Republicans are set to regain their majority and snuff out the radicalism currently infecting the legislative branch.
