Ilhan Omar Accused of Another Anti-Semitic Tweet;
Democrats Say Nothing

Again?

Rep. Ilhan Omar is accused of 'dog whistle' anti-Semitism after she posts tweet implying billionaire businessman Leon Cooperman is only supporting Michael Bloomberg's presidential run because he is Jewish

Rep. Ilhan Omar came under fire on Saturday for sharing a tweet revealing Jewish billionaire Leon Cooperman will back Michael Bloomberg's 2020 bid

She shared the tweeted with a thinking emoji saying: 'I wonder why'

She was accused of 'dog whistle' anti-Semitism for the comment

Critics say she was alluding to the fact that they were both Jewish rather than the fact that they are both billionaires

Omar retweeted posts by supporters who accused critics of 'twisting her words'

Omar has been accused of anti-Semitism for downplaying the 9/11 terror attacks and for a 2012 post where she said 'Israel has hypnotized the world'

As Tim Pool points out, she doesn't seem to have been thinking that he was merely supporting a fellow billionaire, because in that case, he might have supported Trump or Tom Steyr.
