JEANINE PIRRO (HOST): So let me get this straight. She and her family flee war-torn Somalia where 500,000 are killed during a civil war. Then sent to a refugee camp in Kenya for four years. They are then re-settled by our government in Virginia to enjoy the cornucopia of rights, privileges, and benefits the United States offers. The she is Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who represents Minnesota's fifth congressional district, in Congress only about two months. But she's gotten attention far beyond Washington for her anti-Semitism.
She speaks fluently using tropes which are figurative and metaphorical, understanding that those words create powerful images and verbal ironies. She is far from stupid. She is clear and pointed in her hatred. Her comments only critical of Jews and Israel. Not Italy, not Morocco, not North Korea. Israel.
Why the disdain for the government of the country that saved you and your family after you lived in a tent in Kenya for four years? Why the scorn? And as the Democrats scramble to forgive, rationalize and give a pass to a freshman in Congress, the joke is on you, Nancy [Pelosi]. You've appeased rising anti-Semitism inside the Democrat party. Let me say that again. You and the whole gang running for president in the Democratic primary in 2020 have appeased the rise of anti-Semitism in the Democrat party. The sad part is that all this is contrary to the tenets of your party, which is so receptive to the LGBTQ community, illegal immigrants, refugees and on and on. This is not who your party is. Your party is not anti-Israel, she is.
Think about this. She's not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat party. So if it's not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won't get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to sharia law which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?
