Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar — who stirred volcanic backlash over her steady barrage of anti-Semitic comments — has been endorsed by David Duke, a former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard.
Will Omar disavow? Keep in mind that the media and the Democrat Party rabidly hounded President Trump to repeatedly disavow Duke when he expressed mild support for Trump in 2016.
Trump has disavowed Duke numerous times. This angered Duke, who viciously trashed Trump in return.
CNN Ignores Negative News about Democrats
Naturally, CNN responded to Duke’s loving embrace of anti-Semite Ilham Omar with deafening silence. Just like they ignored confirmed reports about Democrat lawmaker Mary Ann Lisanti of Maryland, who called a black county a “n****r district.”

David Duke Loves Omar’s Anti-Jewish Bile
In a stunning Twitter post, David Duke hailed Muslim Ilhan Omar as the “most important person in Congress,” citing her long history of anti-Jewish rhetoric.
“By Defiance to Z.O.G. [Zionist Occupation Government] Ilhan Omar is NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!” David Duke said in a Twitter caption linking to his blog post.
Duke also praised the newbie congresswoman on his podcast for being the “one person in Congress willing to” attack Jews.

Nancy Pelosi Treats Omar Like a Clueless 5-Year-Old
The Democrat Party has been unwilling to condemn Ilhan Omar for saying Israel has no right to exist while spewing her anti-Semitic bile. This is despite the fact that Jewish-Americans tend to vote Democrat.
Yesterday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi defended Omar‘s bigotry by patronizingly suggesting that she was too dumb to realize that her remarks were anti-Semitic.
“I don’t think that the congresswoman perhaps appreciates the full weight of how it was heard by other people.
It’s up to her to explain, but I do not believe that she understood the full weight of the words [she used].”
Pelosi: Omar Doesn’t Understand What She Said
Pelosi then condescendingly said Omar made a rookie mistake, which is to not realize that the things they say carry weight once they are elected members of Congress and not local activists.
“I understand how advocates come in with their [juvenile, misguided] enthusiasms. But when you cross that threshold into Congress, your words weigh much more than when you’re shouting at somebody outside.
I feel confident that her words were not based on any anti-Semitic attitude, but that she didn’t have a full appreciation of how they landed on other people, where these words have a history and a cultural impact that may have been unknown.”
