When CNBC announced that the successful Jewish hedge fund manager would be supporting fellow Jewish billionaire Mike Bloomberg in his run for President as a Democrat, Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (MN), who has a history of making anti-Semitic remarks on Twitter, responded to their tweet, saying, “I wonder why?”
Women’s tennis icon and gay rights activist Martina Navratilova immediately admonished Omar for making yet another anti-Semitic statement on Twitter. Navratilova tweeted, “This is a wrong thing to say Congresswoman…”
Omar’s liberal friends attacked Navratilova, who is a liberal to the core. Navratilova’s profile picture on Twitter is an image of Trump’s MAGA (Make America Great Again) hat with the word “Greta” replacing the word “Great,” as a nod to teenage climate cult leader, Greta Thunberg.
This is a wrong thing to say Congresswoman…

Navratilova responded to Omar supporters who defended her anti-Semitic tweet, by saying, “Generalizing is wrong no matter which “group” of people one talks about. It’s about assigning labels and I hate that.”
Navratilova clarified her criticism of the anti-Semitic lawmaker, saying, “I am speaking about the fact that I don’t like lumping people together, regardless of who is doing the lumping. Has nothing to do with gender, religion, party etc. I abhor any kind of prejudice…”
When Omar was admonished by members of Congress (including members of her own party), for her repeated anti-Semitic remarks, the arrogant Democrat lawmaker refused to back down.
In April, United States Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) sat down for an interview with KARE 11’s Jana Shortal. During their discussion, Shortal asked Omar about her anti-Semitic remarks, as well as her flippant “some people did something” remark in reference to the Islamic terror attacks that took place in American on 9-11, during a recent CAIR event in Los Angeles.
Shortal asked Omar, “Let’s go back in time. On February 10 you responded to a tweet with the words, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby.” Do you regret that tweet? ”
Omar responded, “Regret is a strange word.” Omar laughed.
This isn’t the first time the liberal, gay rights activist took a public position in opposition to her friends on the left. In February, Navratilova was slammed by the left for claiming it’s a form of “cheating” for transgender women to be allowed to compete in women’s sport.
KTLA reported about the 18-time Grand Slam winner, who in The Sunday Times said that it was “insane” that “hundreds of athletes who have changed gender by declaration and limited hormone treatment have already achieved honors as women that were beyond their capabilities as men.”
In December she was criticized after tweeting: “You can’t just proclaim yourself a female and be able to compete against women. There must be some standards, and having a penis and competing as a woman would not fit that standard.”
