A petition calling for Ilhan Omar to be impeached from Congress has received thousands of signatures within a day of launching.
Conservatives and liberals continue to be deeply divided on the topic of Ilhan Omar’s controversial comments on 9-11 and Israel.
Trump supporters see many of Omar’s comments as blatantly anti-semitic and anti-American.
Meanwhile, Democrats including AOC and Presidential candidates Beto, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders have rushed to defend Omar and instead blame Trump.
Below is just a small sample of the comments petition signers left who agree Omar should be impeached.
The petition reads
Minnesota congresswoman Ilhan Omar has repeatedly strayed beyond all boundaries of human decency.
Most recently Omar was caught on video downplaying the 9-11 terror attacks as “some people did something” in an attempt to defend the creation of Islamic terror-tied organization CAIR.
In addition, Ilhan Omar has made a series of disgraceful Anti-Semitic comments, calling Israel “Evil.”
In 2016, Omar wrote to a U.S. District Judge on behalf of a man convicted of trying to join ISIS, advocating for a lenient sentence.
In 2017, Omar argued against a bill in the Minnesota State House to outlaw female genital mutilation, a sick and archaic practice.
Ilhan Omar’s pattern of conduct is a disgrace. We demand she be impeached.
