Omar likens BDS to Nazi boycotts, Boston Tea Party

Rep. Ilhan Omar sitting in CongressRep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) continues to get away with anti-Semitic statements, recently comparing the flagrantly pro-Palestinian Boycott Divestment Sanction (BDS) movement to the Boston Tea Party – which some believe is grounds to remove the anti-American House member from office – and her resolution also likens Israel to Nazi Germany.

Sitting on the House Foreign Relations Committee while it is considering a non-binding resolution condemning the BDS movement, Omar drew a comparison of it with American colonists protesting an overbearing/overtaxing England by dumping tea into the Boston Harbor in 1773. Her resolution also draws parallels of BDS to boycotts of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany during World War II.

“Omar – in true fashion – defended the movement and compared it to the Boston Tea Party,” Townhall reported. “She also referred to Israel as an occupier regarding the current state of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

Author and Christian apologist Dr. Alex McFarland argues that the anti-Israel resolution put forth by two Democratic House members might be demonically initiated.

Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib offered a non-binding resolution this week defending a boycott of Israel, directly comparing the world's only Jewish nation to Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.

"It's disturbing on so many levels because by divine right and historical precedent the land belongs to Israel," McFarland stated today on American Family Radio.

The Christian educator offered his own comparison of Omar, saying he puts her "in the very same ilk as Yasar Arafat [and] as Osama Bin Laden."

"And my prayer is that through the noise of the media and … the mix of truth and error on the Internet that people will know at best this reflects huge ignorance – and at worst it might be demonically initiated."

McFarland hopes America's lawmakers will soundly and quickly condemn the resolution.

License to violate?

Often fending off any criticisms against her anti-American and anti-Semitic rants as singling her out because she is a Muslim African American female, Omar feels her incessant attacks are permissible and should be tolerated because of her politically correct social standing, but her pro-Islam rhetoric has many fearing her support of Islam’s Shariah law supersedes her allegiance to the United States and its Constitution.

The First Amendment, the Boston Tea Party and boycotts against Nazi Germany are all cited in the resolution to support its cause, which accuses Israel of trying to squash free speech in America.

“Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s legislation that offers support to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement cites the Boston Tea Party and boycotts against Nazis,” the Daily Caller (DCNF) noted. “A statement from Omar’s office says the bill is a response to a ‘widespread campaign being waged by the Israeli government … to silence Americans who choose to engage in BDS.’”

Omar championed the resolution as being as noble as colonist’s plight to be free of an economically and religiously oppressive England of the 18th century.

“We must support efforts to end the occupation and achieve a two-state solution,” Omar incited House colleagues during a Wednesday hearing, according to DCNF. “This week, I introduce a resolution … [that] recognizes the proud history of boycott movements in this country dating back to the Boston Tea Party.”

She later insisted that her anti-Semitic resolution represents American values.

“We are introducing a resolution … to really speak about the American values that support and believe in our ability to exercise our First Amendment rights in regard to boycotting,” Omar told Al-Monitor, as quoted in by National Review. “And it is an opportunity for us to explain why it is we support a nonviolent movement, which is the BDS movement.”

In black and white

Wording of the actual resolution – also known as H.R. 496 – clearly attempts to portray BDS as a liberating movement against an oppressive and evil regime.

“Boycotts have been effectively used in the United States by advocates for equal rights since the Boston Tea Party,’” the resolution reads, according to DCNF. “Americans of conscience have a proud history of participating in boycotts to advocate for human rights abroad, including … boycotting Nazi Germany from March 1933 to October 1941 in response to the dehumanization of the Jewish people in the lead-up to the Holocaust.”

Astonished Omar’s still around

National Republican Senatorial Committee Senior Advisor Matt Whitlock could not believe Omar continues to get away with her politically correct racist agenda.

“So this is real – @Ilhan Omar’s BDS bill actually does compare Israel to Nazi Germany,” Whitlock tweeted Wednesday. “And just this morning, she said she didn’t regret any of the anti-Semitic comments she had previously apologized for. Yikes.”

This comes just weeks after Omar’s fellow member of “The Squad,” socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) compared detention centers at America’s southern border to Nazi concentration camps.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.) called Omar out for berating America’s best longstanding partner.

“Israel is our best ally in the Mid East; a beacon of hope, freedom & liberty, surrounded by existential threats,” Zeldin tweeted Wednesday. “Shame on Rep @Ilhan Omar for bringing her hateful twist on that reality to House Foreign today, propping up the BDS movement & blaming Israel for all of its challenges.”

Timing

The House committee is slated to vote on the resolution to stop the destructive BDS movement dead in its tracks.

“[The resolution condemns the BDS movement as an attempt to] undermine the two-state solution [by demanding] concessions of one party alone and encourag[ing] Palestinians to reject negotiations in favor of international pressure,” Townhall’s Matt Vespa pointed out. “The anti-BDS resolution further notes that the movement’s founder, Omar Bharghouti, has openly dismissed the possibility of reaching any settlement that allows the State of Israel to retain its sovereignty.”

As indicated by the anticipated voting results, Omar stands as a loner in her anti-Israel stance.

“Omar is expected to cast the lone vote against the anti-BDS resolution – further highlighting the divide between herself and the panel’s older, more-established lawmakers, who have condemned her comments about Israel in the past,” Vespa added.

He blames Democrats for letting Omar get away with things a lawmaker from another sociopolitical background would be tarred, feathered and removed from office for.

“[T]his is on you, Democrats – you refused to condemn anti-Semitism in a meaningful way,” Vespa asserted. “Omar has accused those of supporting Israel of exhibiting dual loyalty, and now she’s running wild with her total garbage views on Israel – a nation that she accused of hypnotizing the world to its evil. She hates Jews, she hates Israel, and her reference to the so-called occupation is a dead giveaway. Also, BDS will never be anything like the Boston Tea Party. Only someone who is historically illiterate can reach that conclusion – or someone who wants to stay in the spotlight. With Omar, it’s probably a bit of both.”

Omar planning Muslim takeover?

Omar, who stands behind CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) – which has been declared by the FBI as being tied to the Islamic terrorist group, the Muslim Brotherhood – is believed to be part of a movement to replace the U.S. Constitution – rooted in biblical principles – with Islam’s holy book, the Quran.

“Two decades ago, Omar M. Ahmad – then the chairman of the terror-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations – was reported to have told a gathering of Muslims that their purpose for being in America was to help make the Quran the highest authority in the nation,” WND recounted. “Omar and other CAIR leaders have denied he made the statement, but [it was] found the reporter and her editors stood by the story, refuting CAIR’s claim that they had retracted it.”

Another Muslim member of The Squad, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), boasted last February about the presence of Muslims in Congress while giving a speech to CAIR’s Chicago chapter.

“They always said the Muslims are coming … Guess what, I think we’re here,” Tlaib orated as the Muslim audience erupted in cheers, according to WND. “We’re not only everywhere in all kinds of different governments, but, Mashallah, we’re in the United States Congress.”

The independent news outlet noted that “Mashallah” translates to, “what Allah wanted has happened.”

It appears this movement shows no signs of going away, as a new organization has been created with the specific goal of proliferating Muslims’ power in the U.S.

“In an email message on Tuesday, the Muslim Caucus invited those interested to join Tlaib; Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Muslim Democrat from Minnesota; Keith Ellison, a Muslim former congressman from Minnesota; and others ‘to develop a clear roadmap for implementing national organizing structure and policy agenda that centers and organizes Muslim American (sic) [initiatives].’”
