During a Wednesday morning interview on CBS News' "CBS This Morning," Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) doubled down on her past anti-Semitic comments, saying she didn't regret what she had said.
"Oftentimes there are things that you might say, might not hold weight for you, but to someone else, right, the way that we hear and consume information is very different than how the next person might," Omar said.
"So you don't regret your words either?" King asked.
"I do not but I have gotten the, I am grateful for the opportunity to really learn how my words made people feel and have taken every single opportunity I've gotten to make sure that people understood that I apologize for it and I never really want them to-"
"Would you like to make it clear that you're not anti-Semitic?" King asked
"Oh, certainly not," Omar said with a smile. "Yes."
"Would you like to make that clear?" King asked again.
"Yes," Omar said, clearly flustered. "Nothing I said, at least to me, was meant for that purpose."
So...what a minute. Let's get the facts straight here, shall we?
Omar continually pushed the notion that any politician that supports Israel or the Jewish people have "dual loyalty."
She defended fellow Squad member Rashida Tlaib's (D-MI) comments about the Holocaust giving her a "calming feeling."
Hell, she couldn't even say terrorists committed the heinous attacks on September 11th. They were just "some people who did something."
And now the Democrats are using her to talk about "racist tropes" blacks and browns are accustomed to...but we're supposed to forget these vile things Omar said? Sorry. It doesn't work that way. Either all racism is bad and you have a problem with it or you don't. You can't pick and choose what's acceptable. We call that being hypocritical.
