Ilhan Omar introduced a resolution in the House to support the “Boycott, Divest, Sanction” or BDS anti-Israel movement. She wants the “right” to boycott Israel like the US boycotted ‘Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.’ (Fox) Her extremist views have not gone unnoticed by Republicans.
We are introducing a resolution … to really speak about the American values that support and believe in our ability to exercise our First Amendment rights in regard to boycotting…
And it is an opportunity for us to explain why it is we support a nonviolent movement, which is the BDS movement.” Ilhan OmarAl-Monitor
Ilhan Omar introduced the resolution that includes this: “Americans of conscience have a proud history of participating in boycotts to advocate for human rights abroad including … boycotting Nazi Germany from March 1933 to October 1941 in response to the dehumanization of the Jewish people in the lead-up to the Holocaust.”
“American Values?” This woman has no clue about “American values.” She is an extremist who stands with terrorists. It is cosponsored by Rashida Tlaib, and Rep John Lewis. But the hateful resolution was not lost on Republican members like Lee Zeldin.
“Israel is our best ally in the Mid East; a beacon of hope, freedom & liberty, surrounded by existential threats. Shame on Rep @Ilhan Omar for bringing her hateful twist on that reality to House Foreign today, propping up the BDS movement & blaming Israel for all of its challenges.” Rep Lee Zeldin

Other Democrats have been mulling a resolution passed by the House Foreign Affairs Committee condemning the BDS movement as isolating a specific group. Of course they’re worried about appearing to be divided. Ahem. They’ve already been seen as a school of sharks looking for prey, completely worthless as legislators.
Keep this in mind: there are LAWS AGAINST THE BDS MOVEMENT ON THE BOOKS. Which tells us that once again the Democrats are doing absolutely nothing for the American people. They could fix many things right now, but refuse to do so in favor of bashing Trump, infighting, pitching fits over irrelevant things, etc. Their only goal is to poison America, and they’re doing a great job of that.
And the kicker to this? Omar and Tlaib want to go to Israel. Why? To use it as propaganda? That decision rests with Netanyahu. If they were normal people with normal thoughts, it would be good. But in their case…not.
