James Woods isn’t exactly excusing Rep. Ilhan Omar’s “loathing of America” but he does think her controversial views will be a “blessing” for conservatives come 2020.
The conservative actor shared his remarks in response to a tweet by Mark Levin declaring “we won’t be silenced from criticizing America-hating anti-Semite Omar.”
Woods suggested the Minnesota Democrat “genuinely doesn’t recognize” the “deeply embedded” hatred she espouses.
The hate in this one is so deeply embedded in her DNA, she genuinely doesn’t recognize it. While her loathing of America and hatred of Jews is gut-wrenching, she may hand us the #2020Election singlehandedly. So let her bile flow freely. She is a blessing in disguise. https://t.co/uCh8odSyBX

The 71-year-old actor also believes if the freshman congresswoman is allowed to let her “bile flow freely,” it could mean a GOP victory in 2020.
Omar, who has come under fire for her many controversial comments about Israel, and the U.S. support of the nation, is being defended by the left against the criticism. President Trump was blasted as well for denouncing comments at a CAIR meeting in California last month as she characterized the 9/11 terror attack on the United States as “some people did something.”
Trump’s tweet, declaring “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!” has been viewed over 10 million times and sparked hysteria from the left accusing the president of inciting violence against Omar. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanded Trump take down his video post amid claims that Omar, a Somali refugee, is facing death threats.
In a CNN interview this week, Pelosi claimed that there is “no taint” of anti-Semitism within the Democratic party, as she also admitted that she has not even spoken to the freshman Democrat about her controversial comments.

Trump suggested earlier this week that Pelosi has “lost all control” in Congress.
Other Democrats have come to Omar’s defense, attacking anyone who calls her out for her insulting comments. Omar’s Muslim colleague in the House, Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, defended comments by her “sister” who was supposedly “uplifting people by supporting their civil liberties and civil rights.”
And while Pelosi claims the outspoken far-leftists in her party are only “like five people,” Woods had another take on who really holds the Democratic reins. Responding to the Speaker’s claim that she rejects socialism and it is not the view of the party, Woods tweeted that the new influence is in the hands of the “three witches of the East,” referring to Omar, Tlaib and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway also noted the influence of the radical new Democrats during an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd on Sunday, suggesting that “there’s trouble in Pelosi’s paradise.”
Woods’ idea that Omar’s controversies could cost Democrats dearly was echoed on Twitter.
AOC, Tlaib, and Omar are the greatest gift ever given to the Republican party. Not only are they extremely idiotic and hateful but they constantly attack their own party.

I completely agree. Honestly I hope the freshmen don’t tap themselves out too early. We need them in the media to not only guarantee a landslide, but force even the loyal lefties to exhaust their patience with this non sense and join the winning side

The fact that they would defend her is all one needs to know about the Democrat Party!
