Post Politics Now: Biden to meet with Black lawmakers amid renewed calls for police reform

The resolution, once adopted, would explicitly condemn Omar for using an antisemitic trope to suggest Israel’s allies in U.S. politics were motivated by money rather than principle when she in 2019 tweeted, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby.”

The resolution also disapproves of Omar’s critiques of Israel and her comparison of actions by the United States to those of terrorist groups. She later clarified those comments, saying, “I was in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems.”

Omar, a refugee from Somalia, is one of the first Muslim women to serve in the House of Representatives and often faces death threats and other threats of violence. On Wednesday, Omar tweeted an expletive-laden voice mail she received this week where a man said, “I’ll put a bullet in your f—— head and get the f— out of my country.”

“These threats increase whenever Republicans put a target on my back,” she wrote. “They can continue to target me, but they will never stop me from fighting for a more just world.”
