While speaking at a CAIR event in Bellevue, Washington on Saturday, Ilhan Omar, the America-hating, anti-Semitic Democrat Member of Congress from Minnesota, falsely claimed there is an effort to ban Islam from the United States.

“I believe together we can fight against violations of our civil liberties, against threats to our civil liberties and against efforts to ban our entire religion from this country,” she said.

We looked, but were unable to locate any efforts to ban Islam from the United States.

Omar went on to say she was reminded of this earlier in the week when three Muslim members of Congress hosted an iftar, or the evening meal where Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset, at the U.S. Capitol and were joined, she said, by “leaders and members of both houses of Congress.”

One can only imagine the outrage if Trump supporters held an event to build “white Christian power for 2020 and beyond.”

There was, according to a report at the Gateway Pundit, a protest at the event.
