The entire controversy around Ilhan Omar, and her statements about Israel, Jews, and AIPAC-have been driving me crazy. I’ve always been pretyt well to the Left-a life member of the Democratic Socialists of America, I’m damn proud to say; and I always admired Omar, along with the rest of this new crew of Congress-members, and how they’re bringing great progressive (and long overdue) ideas into congressional discourse. I admired how Omar grilled and filleted Elliot Abrams about his role in the violence in El Salvador while he was in the Reagan administration. But, if she IS anti-Semitic, she has to be called out about it.
