“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
If you ever needed proof that liberals and conservatives are held to two different standards, one name can prove it: Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-M.N.
The controversial, far-Left “Squad” member recently made yet another anti-Semitic statement…this time about her fellow Democratic members of Congress.
When asked about the fact that dozens of her fellow Democrats have said Omar’s comments are anti-Semitic, Omar replied that Jews “don’t… know what it feels like to experience injustice.”

When asked whether she wanted to apologize for her comments or walk them back, Omar said absolutely not.
“I don’t,” Omar told CNN during “The Lead with Jake Tapper.”
Instead, she said that Americans just didn’t understand her brilliant argument.
“I think it’s really important to think back to the point that I was trying to make,” she went on. “Obviously, I was addressing Secretary of State (Anthony) Blinken,” calling on him to “put together” cases in front of the International Criminal Court, or ICC.
“I know that some of my colleagues don’t let legitimacy to the ICC, but I tend to think that people around the world who have experienced injustice need to be able to have a place where they can go,” she said. I think that it is really important for us to continued to find ways in which people can find justice around the world.”
Most congressmen don’t “let legitimacy to the ICC,” because Third World nations across the globe have talked about hauling U.S. soldiers in front of it for “war crimes” against their terrorist-supporting regimes.
Once again, Omar sided with our enemies, not her adopted country.
Tapper was asking about comments that Omar made earlier this month that put the U.S. military on the same level as Palestinian suicide bombers, and the Israeli Defense Forces on par with the Taliban.

“We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban,” she posted on Twitter on June 7.

In May, Omar released a long statement on the war calling on the U.S. to shut down Israel’s defense against Hamas firing thousands of rockets at Jewish civilians.
“The United States should not stand idly by while crimes against humanity are being committed with our backing,” she said.

Her statement equated “state and non-state actors”–that is, uniformed military officers carrying out their duty and terrorist groups deliberately killing civilians.
It’s part of a long, and ugly, history.
Just after taking office in 2019, she said that support for Israel is “all about the Benjamins, baby”…in other words, rich and powerful Jews buy congressional support for Israel.
“I know exactly what the congresswoman meant. She might as well call us hooked-nosed,” responded Jewish historian Joshua Zeitz.
In 2012, she wrote, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
So, it’s a definite no on the apology—and why should she say she’s sorry? First of all, she obviously isn’t. She’s a powerful Democratic congresswoman who uses her position to tell the people who pay her salary how much their country sucks. And second of all, Nancy Pelosi has bailed her out every time she has made a controversial statement—Every. Single. Time.
“I think that she clarified her remarks and we accept that,” Pelosi said earlier this month, ruling out any action against Omar. After all, “she has a point that she wanted to make, and she has a right to make that point.”

The only problem isn’t Omar’s remarks: It’s that “there’s some unease about how it was interpreted.”
Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., asked two reasonable questions: “Why is Ilhan Omar still on the Foreign Affairs Committee? Why is she on any committee?”

Omar is on one of the most important committees in Congress, which oversees our alliances with foreign nations—and our response to our terrorist enemies.
That’s not justice. Congress has stripped Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of all her committee assignments, mostly over outraged based on comments she made before she came to Congress.

Meanwhile, Omar continues to spout bigotry with impunity, knowing that Speaker Nancy Pelosi has her back.
What more proof do you need that Democrats don’t care about anything more than they care about power? It’s hard to know what’s more anti-American: Omar’s comments or Pelosi protecting her from accountability over her outrageous comments because of her party registration.
