Jewish Consultant Attempts to Whitewash Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitic Reputation

Jeremy Slevin, Omar’s communications director, is tasked with undoing the damage Omar has caused with her many controversial statements about the Jews.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has become arguably the most controversial lawmaker in Washington D.C. after making an array of comments deemed anti-Semitic since he election last November.

Her Jewish communications director, Jeremy Slevin, is responsible for the task of rehabilitating the Somali migrant’s tarnished image.

Slevin had previously worked for MSNBC and the Center for American Progress, showing his deep connections to Democratic establishment. He also helped rehabilitate the career of former Rep. Keith Ellison, who was able to shake off his connections to radical Islam and a credible domestic violence accusation to become Minnesota’s attorney general in 2018.

“No politician runs to get into trouble,” said Ellison, who once called Slevin his communications director while serving in Congress, to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. “You run to do some good in the world. When that goes awry, you need someone to help you. That’s Jeremy.”

Under Slevin’s tutilege, Omar has taken a much more concilliatory approach toward the Jewish community that she offended previously with her incendiary comments.

“I know there are a lot of people who in the last weeks have expressed support in trying to say this isn’t anti-Semitic or this shouldn’t be looked at in that way,” Omar said on a Feb. 19 conference call with Jewish leaders.

“I do not want to give space or energy to anyone who wants to minimize the hurt,” she added.

Most on the call seemed impressed with these words, but Hadar Susskind – a Jewish Soros-linked operative who now serves as Director of Bend the Arc Jewish Action – saw Slevin’s blueprints all over them.

“That’s the nuance and the voice he brings in, getting past the zero-sum game of ‘I’m right and you’re wrong,’ and actually building community and getting people to work together,” Susskind said of Slevin.

While Slevin may have brought “nuance” into Omar’s talking points, he has not done the same for his own communications. The following message of blatant truth denial, posted last week by Slevin on his Twitter account, drew a tremendous amount of anger from observers:

Slevin was immediately hammered by a chorus of Jewish people who felt he misrepresented the actual nature of the anti-Semitic threat:

Out of embarrassment, Slevin unsuccessfully attempted some damage control by issuing some additional tweets:

Regardless of the exact intent of Slevin’s words, it is clear that he is willing to misrepresent anti-Semitism to protect his Democratic clientele. If Omar survives her many anti-Jewish outbursts and remains in Congress, she will have Slevin to thank for fixing her many problems.

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks

The Democrat complained about masks.

Published

New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.

Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”

This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.

Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.

Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.

Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
