Rep. Omar: From Victim to Victor

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF

Late yesterday afternoon the House of Representatives passed a resolution condemning various forms of hate in response to Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-MD) latest anti-Jewish remarks, which sparked turmoil within the secular Left Democrat Party.

The vote was delayed so the "progressives" could expand the list of victims who experience hate in America.

Noticeably, one group of people who often experience hate was not included in the legally protected class of victims.

Be informed.

Why the hate resolution was needed.

The Democrat's need to address the issue of "hate" was actually birthed out of the need to give cover to Rep. Ilhan Omar, one of two Muslim women elected to the House of Representatives in November.

She has repeatedly and openly criticized Israel and Jewish people since becoming a member of the House of Representatives.

The latest remarks that brought this to a head was "about the political influence in this country that says it is okay for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country," referring to Israel and the close relationship America has always had with the Jewish people.

Last week Rep. Omar, appearing with the other Muslim Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), claimed the Jewish states allies pressure lawmakers to pledge "allegiance" to a foreign country.

This was clearly a stab at the important role Israel plays in our national and Christian heritage, and to evangelical eschatology.

These remarks followed by earlier remarks by Omar in which she said Israel had "hypnotized" America---and later said American politicians were "paid" to support Israel.

Speaker of the House Pelosi had initially tried to ignore Omar's latest hateful remarks about Israel, but as pressure built, Speaker Nancy realized she had a political problem that wasn't going away.

The Democrats quickly crafted a bill that they believed would suffice---it noted that "white Supremacists have targeted traditionally persecuted peoples, including African Americans, Native Americans, and other people of color, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, immigrants," etc.

Progressives were not happy. More victim groups needed to be added to the list of people that are victims of hate.

So yesterday's vote in the House was delayed so more groups could be added. The revised, updated version of the anti-hate resolution included Latinos, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and ---wouldn't you know it, the LGBTQ people.

The additions to the resolution led to it passing late yesterday afternoon by a vote of 407-23.

Nancy now hopes she can put all this hate stuff behind her and move forward, even though Omar was not mentioned in the resolution as some were demanding.

How haters become victims.

The art of hate perfects the ability to express one's own hate toward someone in such a way that the hater, not the hated becomes the victim.

Nancy Pelosi immediately told the press, "I do not believe she understood the full weight of her words. These words have a history and a cultural impact."

Pelosi continued, explaining "that the freshman congressman didn't realize her controversial statements about Israel would be received as antisemitic."

I don't believe Nancy.

Much can be said of Islam, but one thing they are not is negligent in teaching their beliefs to their followers.

They believe the United States is the great Satan and Israel is the little Satan, and Israel must be wiped off the face of the earth.

Omar knew exactly what she was saying. Following this public little wrist slapping performance, Omar will continue to be who she is and say what she believes.

From victim to victor

Last night the pivot began. Hater Omar had become the victim---now she would become the victor.

Omar, whose anti-Semitic remarks had triggered the resolution and the vote, took a victory lap last night, explaining how the resolution was not really about her hate, it was historic because it made progress.

She and her Muslim colleagues in Congress said:
"Today is historic on many fronts. It's the first time we have ever voted on a resolution condemning Anti-Muslim bigotry in our nation's history....Our nation is having a difficult conversation and we believe this is great progress."

Omar neither retracted nor apologized for her own hateful, anti-Semitic comments. Nor was she asked to do so by her political party leadership.

Yet the US Representative who spoke hatred toward Israel, triggering a none-hate resolution had not only become the victim rather than the perpetrator, now, as she awakens to continue her public service to our country, she does so as a victor.

Pray for our country. Pray for our President.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Faithful. Be Prayerful.


  1. The only group of people not on Nancy's resolution are white folks. Have whites become fair game for all society while all others are protected? I demand that if everybody else is protected by Nancy then whites aught to be protected as well. Chris V. Clayton, NC

  2. If the laws or rights do not apply to everyone, they apply to no one and are meaningless. If it is acceptable for a Muslim to denigrate a Jew, the Muslim must be as willing to be denigrated by a Jew.

  3. this is what happens when the righteous say and do nothing.
    It is as much the fault of everyone else as it is the Omar person.
    Speak truth , speak the Word, commit to one is serious

  4. Truth...& Clarity!

    Nancy Pelosi needs to be called on the carpet by ALL Americans, not just the Democrats.

    We should all be writing to her demanding correction for the following violations against America and American:

    1. Nancy Pelosi folded for fear of loosing her “power” and re-drafted the resolution to include "African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and other people of color, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, the LGBTQ community. It is clear that criticisms of all primary and some lesser religions are "taboo", SO...why did Nancy omit "Christianity"? Christianity is more critized (read hated) in the political arena of America than any of these other named religions, yet Nancy demonstrates her own prejudice and hatred toward Christianity by intentionally and conspicuously omitting it from the list.

    2. Omar has since repeated her hate speech toward Israel...even after this resolution was written, yet she continues to have a seat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. This is morally, ethically, and virtually wrong. Omar has demonstrated her unfitness to be on this committee and Nancy Pelosi is even more unfit as the Speaker of the House if she fails to meet her responsibility to remove this bigot with clear conflicts of interest from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

    2. Omar is on to something when she says people have been "hypnotized". Her open claim that "Israel has hypnotized America" clearly overlooks the greater truth that ISLAM has hypnotized her against Israel AND America. She claims Americans have been paid to support Israel is no different than the fact that she is now "paid" to support the tenants of ISLAM against Israel and America; the "little Satan” and the "."big Satan".

    Finally, if the Democrats believe that criticizing and demeaning other Countries is so terrible, why is criticizing America not only permitted, but encouraged and often rewarded by Democrats?

    Where is the FAIRNESS these Progressive Socialists take so much shameless pride in pronouncing as their primary value system?

    Nancy Pelosi needs to hear from all Americans now...

    Then we all need to pray for America and for Nancy and for Omar, for it is not possible to pray for someone and hate them at the same time.

    Truth is a lonely warrior...


    Truth is a lonely Warriro

    at is Christianity left out? Of all these religions, Christianity is the criticized and hated within America than any of them!.

    SO NANCY, "Why are you saying that hate toward Christians is ok when it is not ok for members of these other faiths?"

    By virtue of the fact that "Christianity" has been left out, this resolution is in fact an example of "Hate Speech"!
