It should not be too much to ask for an elected member of Congress to be fully aware of all the facts when sitting on a committee.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who serves on the Foreign Affairs Committee, proved she is absolutely clueless about the Middle East situation with this tweet…
Getting Called Out
The violence over the weekend was blown up by anti-Israel politicians like Omar. However, Omar decided to leave the facts by the side of the road, right along with the history between the two countries.
The recent skirmish got started when Hamas started lobbing rockets into Israel. Most reports estimated the total number of rockets to be more than 250.
Israel, of course, returned fire. Over the weekend, roughly 24 militants and civilians were killed on the Palestinian side and four civilians were reported killed in Israel, along with numerous injuries.
Rather than call out Hamas for starting the attack, Omar instead decided to blame Israel. But she was pretty much wrong about everything, something that was not missed by Donald Trump Jr. and thousands of conservatives in the Twittersphere.
The freshman class of Democrats in the House was supposed to signify a changing of the guard.
However, all it has done is prove that the new generation of Democrat politicians are only educated enough to be dangerous.
Omar is on the House Foreign Affairs Committee — yet she appears to be completely unaware of the fact Israel no longer resides in Gaza.
She also completely ignored the fact that Palestine started the attack that ended up costing civilians their lives.
Then, of course, there is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who apparently didn’t even know what a garbage disposal was until just recently…
How much more do we need to hear before Americans realize these individuals have absolutely no place sitting in Congress?
