Newly elected Rep. Ilhan Omar stepped in it again.
She recently made headlines for pushing to remove a century-old headwear rule so she can wear her hijab in Congress in accordance with Sharia Law.
But now she’s blaming Donald Trump for the unthinkable.
Omar just claimed Trump is responsible for an increased number of hate crimes in America.
But there are several major holes.
First, Donald Trump has never committed a so-called “hate crime.”
Second, Leftists have expanded the definition so that almost everything can be construed as a “hate crime” now.
Finally, many high-profile “hate crime” incidents that have been circulated by the media have turn out to be nothing more than fake news.
In her Op-Ed for the Minnesota Star Tribune she said:
The culture of intolerance spread by President Donald Trump has clearly emboldened racist individuals to acts of violence.
One statistic from the report stands out: Attacks against Jewish people accounted for an astonishing 58.1 percent of anti-religious bias crimes, a drastic 37 percent jump. In fact, anti-Jewish crimes have composed the majority of religion-based acts ever since the FBI began publishing national figures.
But even without formal statistics laid out before us, we know that our world can be dangerous and divisive. That fact was painfully illustrated just last month when a far-right shooter opened fire inside a Pittsburgh synagogue, murdering 11 Jewish worshipers.
Acts of hate like that have no place in America. We cannot allow those who seek to divide us to intimidate or demoralize our society. I believe that, as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. said, the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. I know that with action and effort, love will prevail and hate will be defeated.
She essentially labels Donald Trump anti-semitic.
But President Trump’s own daughter married Jared Kushner and converted to Judaism.
Meanwhile, Ilhan Omar condemned Israel for “evil doings.”
In the same tweet she showed support for Gaza and Palestine, two notoriously anti-Jewish territories in the Middle East.

And at the same time she supports some of the most hateful organizations in existence.
