Senator and 2020 presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren defended Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Israeli tirade Wednesday night; bizarrely stating that “threats of violence” are “never acceptable” while ignoring her vicious, anti-Semitic rhetoric.

“Branding criticism of Israel as automatically anti-Semitic has had a chilling effect on our public discourse and makes it harder to achieve a peaceful solution between Israelis and Palestinians,” said a statement from Warren’s office.

Leading Democrats -including Speaker Pelosi- abruptly abandoned their plans to publicly condemn Omar’s remarks Wednesday after a series of progressive lawmakers rushed to her defense.
