Duke tweeted, “Dr Duke & Eric Striker: By Defiance to Z.O.G. Ilhan Omar is NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!” with an edited picture of Rep. Omar with a smiling heart eyed emoji next to her face. (RELATED: Former KKK Leader David Duke Defends Rep. Omar For Criticizing Pro-Israel Lobbying Group)

Duke posted a podcast on his website Thursday, in which he discussed his reasons for praising Omar. The podcast had a description that read, “In particular, they heaped praise on Ilhan Omar (D-New Somalia) for being the one person in Congress willing to notice AIPAC and the ‘dual’ loyalty of many (((members of Congresss))).”
According to USA Today, the three parentheses around “members of Congresss [sic]” in the description is an anti-Semitic symbol used subliminally to refer to Jewish people.
Duke’s praise comes about while Omar faces heavy criticism for her most recent anti-Israel comments. Politico reported Monday that House Democrats have drafted a resolution to address anti-Semitism, supposedly in response to Omar’s comments.
