'I'm Not Islamophobic, I'm Ilhan-Phobic!': Protest Against Ilhan Omar Draws Hundreds in Times Square
May 22, 2019
Hundreds of protesters gathered in Times Square to demand Rep. Ilhan Omar be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
"I'm not Islamophobic, I'm Ilhan-phobic!" organizer Joe Diamond told the crowd at the Monday rally. The event, put on by a group of Jewish Americans called "Ilhan Must Go," seeks to get the freshman Minnesota congresswoman removed from her post of the Foreign Affairs for comments they say are anti-Semitic and anti-American.
"In her brief political career, Omar has made one vile statement after another attacking American Jews, America's allies, and America's troops fighting overseas. She's trivialized the worst act of terror ever perpetrated on American soil, and has blamed the United States for Venezuela's criminal collapse," the group said in a statement before the rally.
