Rep. Omar Just Made Some Outrageous Claims About the Covington Boys

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) shared perhaps the strangest take on last weekend's incident at the Lincoln Memorial, when a group of Covington Catholic high school students got into a confrontation with Native American activists. The initial outrage was against the students, but when more footage was released, it looked like the adults were to blame because it was the group of Native Americans who first approached the teenagers. The video evidence didn't change Omar's mind on the boys, however. In a Tuesday night tweet, the congresswoman alleged that the students were guilty of harassing a group of black men, chanting racist things, and protesting a "woman's right to choose" by shouting, "it's not rape if you enjoy it." She has since deleted her tweet, but someone grabbed a screenshot.

Conservatives on Twitter accused Omar of slander and wondered why she wasn't as concerned by the Black Hebrew Israelite group that was chanting obscenities at the high school kids.

Dana Loesch was there to derail Omar's claims.

Omar's latest hot take gave critics a chance to revisit Omar's history of anti-Semitic comments. In 2012, she tweeted her opinion that Israel has "hypnotized the world." CNN asked her last week if she regretted those sentiments and the best she could do was, "Those unfortunate words were the only ones I could think about expressing at that moment," adding that she didn't know how the comment was offensive to Jewish people.

Facing another round of backlash, Omar finally offered an apology this week. Or at least it seemed more like one. I'll let you decide.

Omar also recently helped spread the conspiracy that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is only so vocally supportive of President Trump because he's "compromised."
