The fact that she is a Muslim amplified it and definitely fed into it. I guarantee a lot of Jews are questioning whether she is Antisemitic or not now and she brought that on herself. Her apology was aces though so I have no ill will towards her on this (or any) matter.
But I think some of you upset she got ripped for this need to stop and take a major step back. If she was a Trumper and did the same thing, hell if she was a GOPer in any light you all would be destroying them especially you Kep. You wouldnt wait five seconds to post something from TPM about it and show it is further proof they are all racist and you would all disavow the apology. The (D) behind her name is making this way less of a big deal.
And Kep, when I say people are dogwhistling Antisemitism the stuff you are saying is my prime example. I know you arent doing it out of some hatred of Jews which is why I am not attacking you for it but I will point it out to you. No matter what it is about any implication of a "Big Jewish Boogeyman" is never good. It is the same game the Magaytes play with George Soros or the Farrakhan Disciples play with how the Jews own all the banks. Your point gets lost because basically you are saying the "Pelosi Fears the Jew Power So She Shut Omar Up" which is just ridiculous and really offensive. The Jews didnt tell Pelosi to shut Omar up...she did it on her own because Omar put herself in the crosshairs.
Israel is its own issue...but Omar deserved to get her wrist slapped by Mommy Pelosi over this one. And if I lived in Omar's district I would vote for her every election until she quit so I have zero ill will towards her even now because I think she made a frosh mistake.
