Former KKK Grand Wizard and anti-Semite David Duke praised embattled Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar as the “most important Member of the US Congress” for her “defiance to Z.O.G” (Zionist Occupation Government).
In a tweet yesterday, Duke wrote, “Dr Duke & Eric Striker: By Defiance to Z.O.G. Ilhan Omar is NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!”

In a podcast posted to his website yesterday, Duke discussed his reasons for praising Omar. The podcast description reads, “In particular, they heaped praise on Ilhan Omar (D-New Somalia) for being the one person in Congress willing to notice AIPAC and the ‘dual’ loyalty of many (((members of Congresss))).”
Omar has been at the center of controversy for weeks now due to her anti-Semitic rhetoric.
In February, Pelosi and a number of Democrats released a joint statement rebuking Omar after she implied pro-Israel advocacy group, AIPAC, paid off members of Congress for their support.
“Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive. We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments,” the statement said.
Earlier this month, Rep. Engel slammed Omar for her comments claiming that lawmakers who support Israel “hold an allegiance to a foreign country.”
In a statement, Engel called on Omar to retract her statement and apologize, calling her remarks “deeply offensive,” “unacceptable,” and “hurtful.”
