South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn is one of the top Democrats in the House.
He literally just insulted all Jewish Americans in one swoop in order to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), the freshman lawmaker with the wildly anti-Semitic history.
Why do this?
Here are the details…
From The Hill:
Clyburn came to Omar’s defense Wednesday, lamenting that many of the media reports surrounding the recent controversy have omitted mentioning that Omar, who was born in Somalia, had to flee the country to escape violence and spent four years in a Kenyan refugee camp before coming to the United States.
Her experience, Clyburn argued, is much more empirical — and powerful — than that of people who are generations removed from the Holocaust, Japanese internment camps during World War II and the other violent episodes that have marked history.
“I’m serious about that. There are people who tell me, ‘Well, my parents are Holocaust survivors.’ ‘My parents did this.’ It’s more personal with her,” Clyburn said. “I’ve talked to her, and I can tell you she is living through a lot of pain.”
Former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley was not thrilled with Clyburn:
So very disappointed in Mr. Clyburn’s comments. Many of us have felt pain as a minority. All groups have painful pasts. Please don’t suddenly make one minority group’s pain more justified or personal than another’s. #SouthCarolinaDoesNotThinkThisWay

Omar and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) joined Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in a video put out by Rolling Stone.
The trio says a whole lot while literally saying nothing.
Pelosi even went as far as to demand President Trump not seek re-election in 2020.
You know, because a booming economy and all-time low minority unemployment is apparently a bad thing.
Pelosi: “If I had to say something to Trump, I probably wouldn’t say anything, because I don’t think that it’s worth the extra attention.”
She added, “Mr. President, do the country a favor, don’t run.”
Omar represents Minnesota’s fifth district.
A new report claims it is the “terrorist recruitment capital” of the United States of America.
As if Omar wasn’t dealing with enough at the moment, given her anti-Semitic leanings.
Check out Fox News’s headline:
From Fox News:
More men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country.
FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined. And as of 2018, a dozen more had been arrested with the intention of leaving to support ISIS. Both numbers are far higher than those of alleged terrorist wannabes who left or attempted to leave the country from other areas in the country where Muslim refugees have been resettled.
