Rep. Ilhan Omar Claims Critics Were ‘Weaponizing ... Anti-Semitism to Shut Down Debate’
OMAR: "There are those that are interested in weaponizing anti-Semitism to shut down debate on whatever they might not agree on and vilify anybody that they might not want to have any kind of platform to have influence. And so with many of my colleagues, they understand that, one of my first acts after I won my general election was to write an op-ed in my local newspaper about the rise of anti-Semitism when the FBI report came out and the work that we have to do. Because it's really important that you're not only talking about the threats that you face, you're talking about the threats that others face. I'm someone that always sees that there is a connection to your oppression to mine."
