Samantha Bee calls out Democrats for throwing Ilhan Omar under the bus

Samantha Bee calls out Democrats for throwing Ilhan Omar under the bus”

"In a conversation on Facebook, I used some language that I see now was insensitive", Belén Sisa, Sanders' incoming deputy press secretary for Latino outreach, said in a statement. "Issues of allegiance and loyalty to one's country come with painful history", Sisa told Politico.

Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-MN) anti-Israel remarks are so incendiary that her own fellow Minnesota Democrats have turned on her.

However, "While she has created a significant amount of controversy for herself and said things that have offended many Americans, I'm not sure that one could make the case that she is in trouble yet", said Mike Erlandson, the former chair of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party and the former chief of staff to ex-congressman Martin Sabo, a Democrat who challenged Omar's predecessor in 2006.

Minnesota Democrats are seriously considering challenging their Representative Ilhan Omar in the 2020 election over her recent anti-Jewish remarks. "There's definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her". Her comments struck many, including some of her Democratic colleagues, as anti-Semitic tropes, including that suggestion that Jews might have dual allegiances, to their home country and Israel or some other entity.

Omar has been under fire over recent comments suggesting Jewish organizations pay United States politicians to support Israel, which many viewed as anti-Semitic.

Last week, the House of Representatives passed an anti-hate resolution sparked in large part by Omar's recent suggestions that Israel supporters want USA lawmakers to pledge "allegiance" to the Jewish state - which was widely condemned as echoing the age-old "dual loyalties" smear against Jewish politicians.

The House passed a broad anti-hate resolution in response, though it didn't name Omar directly. But Hunegs said Omar didn't care.

But she's also continued to employ controversial rhetoric when discussing Israel, American foreign policy and lobbying.

It is a tall task to unseat Omar, however, considering only two House members from Minnesota have ever lost primaries.
