Racist “Squad” member Ilhan Omar recently compared Israel to terrorist groups, but you wouldn’t know that if you exist inside the fake news bubble at ABC and CBS and the like. Omar made the remarks on Monday, but those networks completely ignored the offensive and anti-Semitic remarks.
Fox News reports that a Media Research Center analysis found that the networks completely ignored not only the controversial remarks, but the backlash that followed:
According to the MRC, NBC eventually reported on the controversy in its Thursday nightly news report, but seemingly downplayed the backlash by Omar’s fellow Democrats calling her out for using “false equivalences” to “give cover to terrorist groups.” ABC and CBS still had not covered the story following their Friday morning news programs.
“We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban. I asked [Secretary of State Antony Blinken] where people are supposed to go for justice,” Omar tweeted Monday.
Omar’s tweet that started the controversy is still active:
Omar’s remarks drew bipartisan criticism, including from 12 Democrat House members calling them “offensive” and “misguided.”
Omar responded by blasting her colleagues, calling it “shameful” for them to have a problem with the racist comparison between Israel and terrorists. According to her, it was also “Islamophobic.”
While the rest of the “Squad” stepped in to defend her, the rest of us just want Ilhan Omar to go away.
