Omar Is Now Fundraising Off Her Anti-Semitic Comments

Rep. IIhan Omar (D-MN) is now fundraising off her anti-Semitic comments that she made last weekend, which prompted condemnations from both Democratic and Republican leadership officials.

On Sunday Omar, tweeted anti-Semitic stereotypes that Jewish money fuels U.S. backing for Israel. Omar eventually issued a half-hearted apology for her comments Monday afternoon.

President Trump and other Republicans have called on Democratic leadership to strip Omar of her seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee because of the comments.

“We will not be silenced,” Omar’s fundraising message on Facebook said, referring to Trump’s request that she be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Omar said that she “unequivocally” apologized for her anti-Semitic comments, but since has refused to address the subject when asked about it by reporters.

Attempting to fundraise off the backlash that her comments caused draws into question whether Omar is actually as sorry for her anti-Semitic comments at all or just sorry that she was disciplined by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others.
