“Sweetheart, don’t do that,” Farrakhan stated, urging Omar not to apologize for her anti-Semitic comments and to “shake up that corrupt House.” He was roundly applauded.
In an address to his movement’s Saviours’ Day conference in Chicago on Sunday, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan encouraged Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to stand by her anti-Semitic comments and not to apologize.
Omar, an advocate for the BDS, has made several racist remarks over the years, mixing anti-Israel propaganda with anti-Semitic tropes. Last week, she explicitly stated that AIPAC, the largest pro-Israel lobby group in Washington, was paying off American politicians to support the Jewish State.
Farrakhan has a long history of anti-Semitism and incitement against Jews. Most recently, he referred to Jews as “termites.”
Omar is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at a fundraiser in Los Angeles in March for the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), according to a report in the Daily Caller.
Earlier this month, she called to completely defund the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, tweeting: “#Not1Dollar for DHS.”
“You have nothing to apologize for. Israel and AIPAC pays off senators and congressmen to do their bidding. So you’re not lying. So stop laying down. You were sent there to Shake up that corrupt House,” Farrakan declared.
Indeed, Omar could be trying to “shake up” the House,” as she recently urged her followers to defund the Department of Homeland Security, tweeting, “#Not1Dollar for DHS.”
