Muslim Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar has been making controversial comments and carrying out unethical actions since she became a member of Congress back in January.
But she just got annihilated by the last liberal she ever expected — HBO host Bill Maher.
Last week, Omar and Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib were banned from visiting Israel over their anti-Semitic comments, the fact that their itinerary stated they were going to meet with a terror-connected group in Palestine on the trip, and because they support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which calls on businesses to boycott Israel.
All of this apparently sent Maher over the edge, which speaks volumes given how anti-Trump and pro-Democrat that he is.

During a segment on his HBO program, Maher pointed out that those who support the BDS movement “slept through history class,” and that the person who co-founded the movement doesn’t even want Israel to exist.
“It’s a bulls**t purity test. BDS is a bulls**t purity test by people who want to appear woke but actually slept through history class,” Maher said.
“It’s predicated on this notion — I think it’s very shallow thinking — that the Jews in Israel are mostly white and the Palestinians are browner, so they must be innocent and correct, and the Jews must be wrong,” he added.
“As if the occupation came right out of the blue, that this completely peaceful people found themselves occupied,” Maher continued. “Forget about the intifadas and the suicide bombings and the rockets and how many wars.”
“Let me read Omar Barghouti, one of the co-founders of the movement,” Maher added. “His quote: ‘No rational Palestinian … would ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine.’ So that’s where that comes from, this movement, someone who doesn’t even want a Jewish state at all. Somehow this side never gets presented in the American media. It’s very odd.”
Some people have one move only: boycott. Cancel. Make-go-away. But here’s the thing, the house voted 318 to 17 to condemn the #BDS movement, including 93% of Dems. Does Tlaib want to boycott 93% of her own party? pic.twitter.com/0QrPQmwwiw

In response, Omar and Tlaib lost their minds and demanded that people boycott Maher’s show.
And in response to their nonsense and obvious attempt for attention, several Jewish groups have fired back at the two radical lawmakers.
Both lawmakers aren’t strangers to controversy.
In recent weeks, Omar has been accused of marrying her own brother to commit marriage and immigration fraud.
And Tlaib has been busy comparing Israel to Nazi Germany.
