Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Has apparently cleared an overnight tweet behind the Catholic students from Covington after she was exposed to a social media setback because of her comments.
Her tweet had been posted well after the first round last week in Washington reporting incorrectly about the widespread confrontation of students with an American Indian. The media artists first jumped on the viral confrontation with Nathan Phillips, and in a first clip showed that the students fought him. Then an additional video provided the context, including the fact that Phillips had approached them in the midst of a confrontation between the students and the Protestants of the black Hebrew Israelites. The students pushed back to the initial criticism, and many of these critics have since withdrawn their statements.

She wrote: "The boys protested against the right of a woman to vote and roared 'it's not rape, if you like it' … They mocked 5 black men before they surrounded Phillips and performed racist chants … Sandman's family hired a right-wing public relations firm to write his non-apology. "
But after an avalanche of criticism, the tweet had been removed late Wednesday morning.
Omar faced allegations of lying and falsifying the facts in response to her original tweet.
