Rep. Ilhan Omar drew scrutiny this week after she rushed headfirst into a door, metaphorically speaking, while trying to defend Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock, a far-left radical who’s seeking the seat of former Sen. Johnny Isakson.

Shocking video footage emerged this week of Warnock, a senior pastor at Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church, delivering an inflammatory speech in which he proclaims that “nobody can serve God and the military.”

Reportedly recorded in 2011, the speech provoked a scathing backlash from Sen. Marco Rubio, a Catholic, for its radicalism.

Observe:

Plenty of other notable figures felt similarly.

Look:

Now cue Omar, an equally radical Democrat.

In an attempted rebuttal directed at Rubio, she claimed in a tweet Wednesday that Warnock’s words were just a quote from the Bible …

Look:

*facepalm*

First of all, her “Mathews” is missing a “t.” Second of all, it’s Matthew, not “Mathews.” And third of all, it’s money, not “dmoney.”

Naturally, these remarkable typos triggered some mockery.

Look:

But the bigger error is contextual.

While Omar correctly quoted Matthew 6:24, it’s clear she misinterpreted it. The passage speaks specifically of money and mammon, the Aramaic term for wealth, because it’s supposed to be a contrast between spirituality and materialism.

An article published in Charisma magazine five years ago explains.

“Would you agree that we live in a culture of materialism? It’s like the goal is to get more and more and more. And just about the time you catch up with the Joneses, they refinance or file bankruptcy. And just about the time you think you’ve got it all, the Christmas advertisements come out, and they tell you about all kinds of things you didn’t know you couldn’t live without,” the article reads.

“It’s tough keeping your priorities right when you live in a society that’s all about ‘getting.’ The one with the most toys wins, right? No! The one with the most toys still dies, whether or not you’ve got toys.”

To those who subscribe to faith, the focus therefore ought to be on spiritual growth, not material growth via the acquirement of more money and wealth. That’s the point.

But what does this have to do with the military … ? Nothing. Yet Omar’s fellow Democrats and her sycophantic media allies rushed to her and Warnock’s defense.

Look:

It’s a “low blow” to point out factual inaccuracies, according to Hawaii Sen. Brian Schatz, a Democrat? Rubio disagreed. So did others.

Look:

And the other point is that Warnock is a radical, period. And so is Omar.
