Lawfare Project founder Brooke Goldstein launched a caustic attack on Somali Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, stating that she would be "in the KKK" if she weren't in Congress.

Goldstein was a guest on Fox News host Tucker Carlson's show, where she ripped into the Democrat over he stance on Israel.

"First of all, this is a woman who called you a white supremacist and the irony there is that if she wasn't a member of Congress, she would be a member of the KKK," Goldstein replied when asked about Omar's views.

She continued that Ilhan "built a career on attacking American Jews" and that she "hides behind the fact" that she's a woman and Muslim, claiming the Democratic Congresswoman can accuse anyone who criticizes her of being "Islamophobic and racist." 

Goldstein then slammed the BDS movement as anti-Semitic and "illegal commercial discrimination," Goldstein adding that the rise of anti-Semitism on the left is a "national emergency" and Omar "is a small part of it and a symptom of it."

Carlson also delivered an unwarranted attack on the Congresswoman:

"Virtually every public statement she makes accuses Americans of bigotry and racism. This is an immoral country, she says. She has undisguised contempt for the United States and for its people," Carlson said. "That should worry you, and not just because Omar is now a sitting member of Congress. Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country. A system designed to strengthen America is instead undermining it."

Carlson was quick to dismiss Carlson's remarks:

"Not gonna lie, it's kinda fun watching a racist fool like this weeping about my presence in Congress," she tweeted, adding - "no lies will stamp out my love for this country or my resolve to make our union more perfect. They will just have to get used to calling me, Congresswoman!"
