Center for Security Policy one of the groups behind the anti-Ilhan Omar push

President Donald Trump pushed for congressional leaders to unseat Rep. Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee this week by citing a letter signed by organizations he described as “Jewish groups” calling for her removal.

But the coalition behind the letter — described by conservative media to be “leading Jewish organizations” — includes groups that maintain no relationship to the American Jewish community and peddle anti-Muslim conspiracy theories.

Signatories include two organizations classified as anti-Muslim hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Both have ties to the Trump administration: ACT for America and the Center for Security Policy.

Critics say the president’s promotion of fringe anti-Muslim groups with hawkish foreign policy views raises wider questions about the Republican push to unseat Omar from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Important thing to note, this is the same exact Center for Security Policy that pushed the claim that Obama redesigned the Missile Defense Agency logo to look like an Islamic crescent... when the logo change was in the works for years before Obama became President.

I didn't trust Frank Gaffney's sense of judgment on Barack Obama, no reason for me to start trusting it on Ilhan Omar.

1. Frank Gaffney is a horrible, extremist crank.

 

Will Democrats finally learn not to arm bad-faith Republicans with this kind of nonsense?

There is no need for a resolution. If they want to DO something, just have some Democrats meet with her and then release a public statement that they've talked out their issues.

2. It's just so strange

Every time you scratch the surface of yet another "This Democrat is Horrible!" "controversy," it turns out that what the person actually said or did doesn't quite match up to the incendiary rhetoric used against him or her (and it's usually "her" ). And when you subject the shrillest of the critics to the least bit of scrutiny, "many people" becomes "some people" becomes "this one group you've never heard of" becomes "some odious Republican operative."

Uncanny, I call it.

3. Indeed, and they are really pushing it to new levels with Rep. Omar
