Why is a known racist backing Somalian-born Ilhan Omar?

On Thursday, David Duke named Omar “the most important member of US Congress” in a tweet and then sent readers back to his website where he has a recorded hour-long and overtly antisemitic show.

During the show, he does not specifically mention Omar, but he does justify euthanasia killings of Jews by the Nazis, charges the United States with having “unleashed Jewish power,” and attacks “Jewish elite control over media.”
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.
Z.O.G. stands for Zionist Occupation Government, an antisemitic conspiracy theory.
This is not the first time that Duke has defended Omar. Back in early February, when she first brought controversy upon herself for tweeting that politicians are pro-Israel because they are paid to be by AIPAC, Duke publicly backed her, as well.
Late Thursday, the US House of Representatives passed new legislation condemning “antisemitism, Islamophobia, racism and other forms of bigotry,” with Omar’s support.
