Socialist Rep Ilhan Omar was confronted by a senior writer for Townhall.com over her support for the BDS movement as it pertains to Israel but not Iran.
I asked Rep. Omar what her response is to those calling out her support for BDS against Israel while criticizing sanctions against Iran. She said it’s “very different” bc BDS is by the people, while Iranian sanctions is by a gov to create maximum pressure.https://t.co/3TVNGFpWy1 pic.twitter.com/e2kC3qfllD

Twitter had a field day educating her:
“Divestment” and “sanctions” are inherently actions by institutions/governments and not regular people. That’s what the “boycott” is for.

This brings up another question, who does Omar view as a greater evil, Iran or Israel?
