Marsha Blackburn And Ilhan Omar Clash Over Anti-Semitic Protesters

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) got into a squabble over the anti-Israel protests that have been going on in colleges across the United States.

In a post to X, Omar shared a screenshot of a post Blackburn made from her congressional account about implementing penalties for students advancing the Hamas cause on college campuses.

“Any student who has promoted terrorism or engaged in terrorists [sic] acts on behalf of Hamas should be immediately … added to the terrorist watch list and placed on the TSA No Fly List,” Blackburn had written in the post.

Omar, in her post, wrote, “A sitting Senator, labels Americans protesting against a foreign country accused of carrying out a genocide funded with our tax dollars as terrorists and puts a target on their back to be attacked. This is insanely dangerous and somehow no one will condemn it.”

Blackburn fired back at the Democrat lawmaker in a post on her campaign X account.

“You falsely think some Jewish students are ‘pro-genocide.’ I think most Jews believe you’re anti-Semitic,” she wrote.

In another post, Blackburn said, “Despite what you’ve said, [Omar], Jewish students aren’t ‘pro-genocide,’ history won’t be on the side of anti-Semitic protestors. (T)he US and Israel aren’t responsible for ‘crimes against humanity,’ the IDF is an army, and Hamas is a terrorist group, and Israel hasn’t ‘hypnotized the world.’”
