Ilhan Omar Labels Upset Parents Nazis While Taking a Swipe at Ted Cruz By Twisting His Words

The mainstream media freaked out after U.S. Sen Ted Cruz (R-TX) took Attorney General Merrick Garland to task yesterday at a Senate Judiciary hearing.

Multiple news outlets ran a headline stating, “Ted Cruz defends parent’s use of Nazi salute.”

Journalist Aaron Rupar tweeted out a clip of Cruz’s interaction with Garland and said, “Ted Cruz defends Nazi salutes at school board meetings.”

Many have been using Nazi symbolism to not declare that they are Nazis, but rather as a protest of Democrat policies involving COVID.

Cruz told Garland, “My God! A parent did a Nazi salute at a school board because they thought the policies were oppressive.”

U.S. House Rep Ilhan Omar (D-MN) took the cue from the media and took it a step further by suggesting that the parent gave the salute because he was a Nazi.

“Ted Cruz just casually defending Nazis in a congressional hearing,” Omar said in a quote tweet of Rupar along with a woman facepalming emoji.

Cruz didn’t let Omar get away with it, however, and told her in a quote tweet, “You are frequently a liar (and often spewing anti-Semitism).”

“But here, you’re lie is exactly 180 degrees false. I was defending the right of citizens to denounce authoritarian policies. In other words, to OPPOSE Nazis (or petty tyrants), not to support them,” Cruz explained.

Predictably, Omar was unwilling to accept his explanation and shot back, “Oh Ted, I hope you didn’t strain your self in coming up with this level of infinite projection. Insurrectionists like yourself who surround themselves with domestic terrorists aren’t fighting authoritarianism but encourage it. You aren’t fooling anyone, resign.”

We reported earlier this month that GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker had to deal with a similar situation:

Walker faced controversy earlier this week when he was criticized for being scheduled to attend a fundraiser with a conservative film producer who had a syringe swastika as her Twitter profile picture.

The event, at the Texas home of Bettina Sofia Viviano-Langlais, was ultimately “called off” by Walker’s campaign.

Walker’s campaign initially had contended the symbol wasn’t a swastika but a sign of opposition to vaccine requirements.

Bowing to pressure, in a statement after the cancelation, the campaign said, “Despite the fact that the apparent intent behind the graphic was to condemn government vaccine mandates, the symbol used is very offensive and does not reflect the values of Herschel Walker or his campaign.”
