Ilhan Omar Turns Anti-Semitism Into Cash, Rakes in $832k From Mostly Small Donors
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has dominated the news after making frequent offensive comments about the Jewish people and the state of Israel, and her brand of hate is paying off. Omar raised a formidable $832,000 in the first quarter, mostly from small donors.
According to her FEC filing, Omar posted one of the most lucrative hauls of any member of Congress. The Democrats have apparently bought into her victim ploy, as Omar has repeatedly used the fact that she is the first Somali-American member of Congress to avoid taking responsibility for her incendiary remarks.
Women—especially women of color—have been told to go slow, to not be seen and to not be heard for many years.

This is dangerous incitement, given the death threats I face. I hope leaders of both parties will join me in condemning it.

Nearly half of the money raised – $415,000 – came from small donors who gave less than $200 to Omar in individual donations. Disgruntled Muslims happy they are finally receiving representation in Congress and guilt-ridden white liberals who adhere to diversity and multiculturalism as a religious dogma have coalesced behind Omar, filling her coffers with an impressive total.
Omar received a mere $10,000 from political action committees, showing that she is not beholden to any special interest that would interfere with her Islamic socialist agenda. Her independently raised wealth will allow her to gain an even stronger standing in a Democratic Party that is already kowtowing to her every whim.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is practically holding the entire Capitol hostage to the whims of Omar, who claims she is being threatened without providing any evidence.
“I spoke with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family and her staff. They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces,” Pelosi said in a statement to reinforce Omar’s victimhood after the President released a tweet exposing her plain words.
The Democrats couldn’t even pass a resolution condemning anti-Semitism because Omar’s victim status took precedence over all else.
Radical socialists in the grassroots rose up and put Democratic leadership in their place when they tried to hold Omar accountable for her comments:
This letter was sent to @SpeakerPelosi today from hundreds of leaders across the country who stand with @Ilhan and want Democratic leadership to expand language of their resolution. No double standards. Condemn all forms of bigotry. #IStandWithIlhan https://t.co/C8uHbMOMDq pic.twitter.com/bFSW1jwCtT

At the end of the day, the text of the resolution was changed and the read as a racist attack against white people on behalf of all designated victim groups. Omar gloated after the victory she orchestrated.

While Democratic leadership may want to downplay the influence of Omar and other freshman socialist radicals in Congress, it is clear they are running the show as the anti-Trump “resistance” sends modern liberalism to crazy town.
