Ilhan Omar Tells 5 Whoppers About SCOTUS, Which Guy Benson Promptly Dissects

This one was over before it started. Over in the sense that Fox News contributor Guy Benson is way too smart to pass on the opportunity to respond to politically-expedient lies about conservative justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. By Mensa member Democrat Representative Ilhan Omar (Minn.), no less.


As the left’s histrionic meltdown continues over SCOTUS finally handing down the 5-4 decision overturning Roe v. Wade, our “peacefully-protesting” left-wing friends’ dangerously aggressive anger against the conservative justices remains at a level previously unseen against the U.S. Judiciary. While Omar might not have directly threatened specific justices by name — Chuck Schumer style — she continues to lie her ass off about both the impact of the Roe decision and the justices themselves. Here are five of those lies:

5 justices confirmed by a POTUS who lost the popular vote.
4 lied under oath.
2 credibly accused of sexual assault.
1’s seat literally stolen.
1’s spouse implicated in a coup attempt.

Yeah, not even close. Don’t you just love how Democrats shamelessly concoct lies out of whole cloth, spew those lies without hesitation, and then demand that their targets refute the made-up allegations? Me, neither — but I do find it somewhat amusing.

Someone else who didn’t love Omar’s latest lie-fest was Townhall political editor and Fox News contributor Guy Benson, who promptly went about destroying her blatant, politically-expedient nonsense — without so much as breaking a conservative sweat. Systematically, Benson destroyed Omar’s lies, one by one.


Falsehoods galore from this liar.

1) The popular vote is not how we elect presidents, but she’s wrong. Roberts & Alito [were] appointed by W [George W. Bush] after he won the popular vote. Same w/ Thomas & GHWB [George H.W. Bush] (btw Trump won a higher % of the popular vote than Bill Clinton, who picked RBG & Breyer)…

Any questions, so far, Ilhan?

Let us continue:

2) They did not lie under oath, but if Ilhan thinks they did, she should lead the charge to impeach Kagan & Sotomayor for the same non-offense.

Benson then linked to his recent column, Flashback: Did Justice Sotomayor ‘Lie’ to Senators About Gun Rights?.

It gets even better. Benson also torched Omar’s false allusion that Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh were “credibly accused” of sexual assault by Anita Hill and Christine Blasey Ford, respectfully.


3) None of the justices are “credibly accused” of sexual assault.

Oh, this is getting embarrassing, Ilhan. So, do you think it might be a good idea next time to check the facts before you launch into a silly, baseless attack? In this case, against Supreme Court justices, simply because you don’t agree with their opinions?

Aaand… lie #4. One. More. Time, Democrats:

4) No seat was “stolen” (she can take it up with Biden & Schumer), and I thought false claims that undermine faith in our system were supposed to be bad.

Omar’s accusation was based on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s refusal to hold confirmation hearings for Merrick Garland during the 2016 lame-duck session of Congress, and holding confirmation hearings for Amy Coney Barrett in October 2020, also an election year.

Finally, lie #5 — Omar’s ill-advised reference to Clarence Thomas’s wife. Benson was more than ready to point out the congresswoman’s laughable hypocrisy.


5) I’m not sure this particular Congresswoman wants to get into a political fights# over guilt-by-association, or…ahem…spouses.

Yeah, not a smart move at all, Ilhan. Omar reportedly paid the “firm” of her second (as far as we know) husband in excess of $1 million during the 2020 campaign cycle — in what appeared to be a violation of campaign finance rules.

Speaking of Omar’s husbands, she filed for divorce from her “first” husband — Ahmed Hirsi — in 2019.  Unproven rumors swirled that Hirsi was actually Omar’s brother, whom she had “married,” with the dynamic duo also committing immigration fraud. Again, the rumors were not substantiated. [rolling-eyes emoji]

The bottom line:

I know I repeat this on a regular basis, but justifiably so. The hypocrisy — and blatant lying — of the left knows no bounds.

The ugly truth is that Democrats (see: Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, et al.) know they’re lying when they lie. From Nancy Pelosi to irrelevant radical-leftist noisemakers like Ilhan Omar, Democrats continue their decades-long practice of lying to low-information Democrat voters.


Speaking of Pelosi and Omar, remember that time Madam Speaker gave the America-hating Omar a pass for comparing the United States and Israel Hamas and the Taliban? We do.
