If this were true, then Omar’s repeated anti-Semitic statements would have endangered the lives of all Jews, but of course no one said that. This is just a ploy on Omar’s part to get a political opponent and personal critic removed from Congress. And it may well work, as Boebert herself has already vindicated the lynch mob that is out to destroy her politically by apologizing for her joke.

“Former GOP Congresswoman Urges Voters to Oust Boebert, Greene: ‘Take Out the Trash,’” by Jason Lemon, Newsweek, November 28, 2021:

…Following the backlash, Boebert on Friday tweeted an apology to the Muslim community.

“I apologize to anyone in the Muslim community I offended with my comment about Rep. Omar. I have reached out to her office to speak with her directly. There are plenty of policy differences to focus on without this unnecessary distraction,” the Colorado Republican said….

Omar urged Democratic and Republican leaders to take action against Boebert for her remarks.

“Saying I am a suicide bomber is no laughing matter. @GOPLeader [Kevin McCarthy] and @SpeakerPelosi [Nancy Pelosi] need to take appropriate action, normalizing this bigotry not only endangers my life but the lives of all Muslims. Anti-Muslim bigotry has no place in Congress,” the Minnesota Democrat tweeted on Friday.
