Wednesday night on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin tore into Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., for her anti-Israel remarks at a meeting of the House Foreign Affairs Committee earlier that day.

Alongside a resolution introduced with Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., that compared boycotts of Israel to those against Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, Omar also compared efforts to weaken and undermine the world’s only Jewish state over its so-called “occupation” to the Boston Tea Party on Wednesday.

“What exactly is Israel ‘occupying’ that doesn’t belong to Israel?” Levin asked. “Air and land. Because Omar, that’s her real problem, like Tlaib, that it is a Jewish state. They can’t stand it.”

Levin went on to note the contrast between the legacy media’s treatment of Omar and her colleagues’ feud with Trump from over the weekend to that of her anti-Semitism from Wednesday. While left-leaning media outlets made front page news over Trump’s tweets about Omar, they seem to be quite silent on her latest remarks about Israel.

“For me,” Levin said, “it’s about who these people are in their heart and soul. They’re haters; they’re bigots.”
