Looks like Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is no loyal minion of Barack Obama’s these days. First, she creates a maelstrom with multiple anti-Semitic comments. Now, she’s going after former President Obama because he used drones on terrorists and caged illegal aliens. I’m no supporter of Obama by any means but boo hoo.
In an interview with Politico, Omar claimed that Obama’s message of “hope and change” was a “mirage” and blasted his administration’s drone and border detention policies. She even disparaged his ‘pretty face’. She also said the Democratic Party was “perpetuating the status quo.” But remember, she was silent while Obama did all this. Where was she then?
“Recalling the ‘caging of kids’ at the U.S.-Mexico border and the ‘droning of countries around the world’ on Obama’s watch,” Omar charged that Obama “operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor,” the piece reads. This is an attack on anyone who goes after radical Islamists or illegal aliens.
Omar went on to say: “We can’t be only upset with Trump… His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was.
“And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”
Omar just trashed the left’s Messiah… this won’t end well for her. She’s already ticked off party elders and now this. Lord help her if she goes after Hillary Clinton. Just sayin’.
Omar believes Trump is “completely insane” and has proven himself unfit for office. However, she adds, “I think the vice president is more dangerous than the man who is running the circus. So, impeachment is something that I think might become necessary—but I’m also afraid of it.” But she’ll go for it anyway because the one who is actually insane here is Omar.
One comment on the Fox News story was very apropos:
“It looks like the Democratic Party can’t decide between giving our country away to Central America or to Radical Islam.
Pelosi loved Omar when she thought she just hated Republicans. Turns out she just hates Americans.”
That one is right on the money.
A couple of others are of a different bent:
“The constitution IS the status quo. She’s openly calling for the overthrow of the government. It’s time to kick her out of congress and bring her to trial for her subversive activities. She’s nothing but the mouth piece for CAIR.”
“dems, you created this frankenstein…
do something about it, okay?”
All is not unicorns and rainbows in the Democratic Party these days. There’s a huge fight brewing and it will split the party down the middle. In the end, my money’s on the leftist radicals winning. They have to this point and they feel their time is now. Plus they are willingly violent.
After the passage of a broad anti-bigotry resolution prompted by Omar’s prior comments about Israel, the drama surrounding its passage exposed deep rifts in the Democratic caucus regarding Israel and marked a coup of sorts for a tight-knit band of House freshmen who – in a matter of hours – were able to shift the spotlight away from Omar’s allegedly anti-Semitic remarks and refocus on issues like Islamophobia and the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC. They made Muslims the victims here instead of those of the Jewish faith.
“The week was supposed to start off with a rebuke of Omar’s anti-Semitic comments and it ended up turning into a long list of other hateful actions,” House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) told Fox News, saying the final product “fell short of addressing the real problem.” That’s the understatement of the century here.
Omar, Tlaib, and Ocasio-Cortez are making the old guard on both sides of the political aisle here the enemy. That includes Barack Obama. Yes, he targeted terrorists with drones. Yes, he’s the one that put illegal alien children in cages. But this is all smoke and mirrors. Omar throws Obama to the PC wolves to give herself credence and to make the case of ‘it’s us against them’. Welcome to terrorist politics in America.
