Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar revived accusations of her being antisemitic when she posted her latest diatribe on Twitter.
The comment came prior to the representative’s scheduled appearance for the Council on American Islamic relations.
She was responding to a tweet from CNBC that said “Leon Cooperman says he will support fellow billionaire Mike Bloomberg for president.”

That is when Rep. Omar responded with “I wonder why?” along with a thinking emoji but did not say what she was thinking.

Many people believed it was an anti semitic dog whistle from the Congresswoman who has been accused of antisemitism before.
Is Omar an anti semite?
That is because of the fact that both men are billionaires and Jewish and Rep. Omar has a history of not talking kindly about either group.
Generalizing is wrong no matter which “group” of people one talks about. It’s about assigning labels and I hate that.

Is…is that ANOTHER antisemitic slur? What do these two gentlemen have in common? I wonder what it could be?

I more shocked that she decided to go after the new Dem candidate that could revitalize the primaries. I’m sure the Dem leaders HATED this tweet.

If you do not want this seen as a poorly veiled “Jewish” statement, you need to explain.
