Omar: Dual loyalty for me but not for thee

Omar: Dual loyalty for me but not for thee

Earlier this year when freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar was spewing anti-Semitic tropes on the floor of the House, for which she ended up receiving a nearly imperceptible slap on the wrist, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer spoke up in an effort to set the record straight about America’s alliance with the lone democracy in the Middle East. During a speech at American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) 2019 conference, he said:

I am an American who believes passionately in the idea of Israel, in the State of Israel, and in the essential right of Jews to have a place of sanctuary in their homeland after millennia of hatred, prejudice, exclusion, dehumanization, and attempted annihilation. The State of Israel, founded upon that profound and transcendent premise, must never be allowed to fail.

[…]

I stand with Israel, proudly and unapologetically. So, when someone accuses American supporters of Israel of dual loyalty, I say: accuse me. …

Many Americans from all over the ideological spectrum agreed that Omar’s dual loyalty accusation was odious. But as it turns out, Omar is a believer in dual loyalty after all. Watch and learn:

Omar is not only an anti-Semite but a hypocrite. Yes, she may be an American citizen, as many on the Left have argued in recent days. But she exemplifies the worst possible traits that go hand in hand with that honor.
