Ilhan Omar mocked by political commentator with ties to neo-Nazis
The right-wing political commentator Milo Yiannopoulos has put on an Ilhan Omar comedy sketch.
Omar, a famed Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) supporter, pointed an accusatory finger at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in February, saying the organization is paying American politicians to be pro-Israel.
Yiannopoulos has ties to neo-Nazis and is thought to have “smuggled White nationalism into the mainstream,” as BuzzFeed once reported.
Later in the sketch, Omar tells the audience that “Islam rocks,” meaning that the religion uses rocks to stone gay people.
The comment was made in reference to Brunei for introducing “retrograde” Islamic laws that punish gay sex and adultery with death by stoning.
She then goes on to say that she will have more rocks in the back of the room, alongside her display of the latest edition of the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” which she will be signing after the show.
“They say the gays are the dumbest minority. They love Islam, hate Christianity…. But then think of the Hollywood Jews who support me. They have asked you to let you know that the blood of Christian infants will be available after the tea and coffee at the back. Just kidding,” Yiannopoulos quips in his Omar guise.
The sketch includes jokes about being Muslim and a feminist and about the joy Omar gets when she sees she has been retweeted by “intellectual giants” such as Linda Sarsour, co-chair of the national Women’s March, who in February tweeted in defense of Omar’s antisemitic tweets that the “end goal of the right is to marginalize prominent voices who dare speak up for Palestinians,” adding, “We need to resist this.”
“When my family came to this country we had to decide on our political allegiance. Unfortunately, there was no Hamas here,” says the Omar of the comedy sketch. “I love the way my Democrats in Congress of the United States – I can say whatever outrageous thing about Jews I like and then Congress passes a resolution against attacks against Muslims.”
She says David Duke called her the most important person in Congress and that the statistics that say 25% of Muslims are radicalized are wrong because “the rest of us are liars.”
Yiannopoulos, for example, is known to have encouraged vigilantes to start “gunning journalists down” two days before a Maryland newspaper was targeted in a shooting that killed five people.
And he has well-reported ties to neo-Nazis and members of the alt-Right, from whom he would regularly solicit feedback and story ideas for Breitbart, where he served as an editor. He has also been accused of being an apologist for pedophilia.
