The Democrat Party has about had it with the freshman class of big mouths that have gotten elected to their ranks.

And Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is climbing the ladder of annoying to take the championship from New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Democrat New York Rep. Nita Lowey took aim and Omar and recent antisemitic comments she made.

“Gross islamophobic stereotypes – like those about @IlhanMN recently featured on posters in WVA – are offensive and have no place in political discourse,” she said.

“Anti-Semitic tropes that accuse Jews of dual loyalty are equally painful and must also be roundly condemned,” she said.

“Lawmakers must be able to debate w/o prejudice or bigotry. I am saddened that Rep. Omar continues to mischaracterize support for Israel,” she said.

“I urge her to retract this statement and engage in further dialogue with the Jewish community on why these comments are so hurtful,” she said.

But in her typical fashion Omar responded to the comments in the most disrespectful way one could imagine.

“Our democracy is built on debate, Congresswoman! I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee,” she said.

“The people of the 5th elected me to serve their interest. I am sure we agree on that!” she said.

“I have not mischaracterized our relationship with Israel, I have questioned it and that has been clear from my end,” she said.

“I am told everyday that I am anti-American if I am not pro-Israel. I find that to be problematic and I am not alone. I just happen to be willing to speak up on it and open myself to attacks,” she said.

“My Americanness is questioned by the President and the @GOP on a daily basis, yet my colleagues remain silent. I know what it means to be American and no one will ever tell me otherwise,” she said.

Her brazen antisemitism and ego did not make her many friends on Twitter.
