A human rights attorney told Fox News this week that if far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) were not in Congress that she would be in the Ku Klux Klan, an assertion that she made based on Omar’s behavior.
Brooke Goldstein, the executive director for The Lawfare Project, made the remarks during an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.
“First of all, this is a woman who, by the way, called you a white supremacist,” Goldstein told Carlson. “And the irony there is that if she wasn’t a member of Congress, she would be a member of the KKK. Yes, she has commented on Israel, but she has built a career on attacking American Jews. She has said that American Jews control Congress. She has insinuated, for example, that Jews have dual loyalty.”
“These things have nothing to do with Israel, they are direct attacks on American Jews, a minority community in the United States,” Goldstein continued.
Earlier this year, former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke declared that Omar was the “most important member of Congress!”
“She hides behind the fact that number one, she is a Muslim and a woman, as though that insulates her from criticism and anybody who criticizes what she says is automatically Islamophobic or racist,” Goldstein added. “And she also hides behind, ‘Well, you know, I’m just criticizing Israel.’ But think about it, if you had a problem, for example, with the Chinese government, would you turn around to local Chinese Americans and discriminate against them?”
