Ilhan Omar Does It Again

Ilhan Omar Does It Again

You would think that freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar would sheath her tongue after getting a huge pass from her fellow Democrats for her anti-Semitic trope. But nooooo!
(Incidentally, I can only image Omar’s reaction to my using “freshman” and “fellow Democrats,” but I have so far avoided being sent off to political correctness indoctrination camp.)
Omar expressed her appreciation to Speaker Nancy Pelosi – and all those other Democrats who humiliated themselves by passing a generic resolution against all the ugly isms that form the foundation of the Party’s identity politics – by attacking the leader emeritus of the Democratic Party, Barack Obama.
Former President Obama is arguably the most popular Democrat in America these days. Party members speak of him with the same admiration and reverence they hold for President Franklin Roosevelt – even more so.
Not long after the last vote was cast on the resolution that was intended to assure Jews that they were still loved by Democrat leaders not holding Omar accountable, the new congresswoman from Minnesota attacked Obama.
In an interview with Politico, Omar dumped on Obama with the same acrimony that Democrats usually reserve for President Trump. In fact, Omar claimed that Obama was not much better than Trump by saying that “we cannot only be upset with Trump.” Most Democrats would respond with Obama’s 2008 campaign slogan, “Yes, we can.” Is Omar unaware that the entire #NeverTrump Resistance Movement is predicated that there is nothing good to be said about Trump and nothing bad about Obama?
Omar declared that “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.” Well, at least she conceded that Obama is handsome and has a great smile.
She argued that Obama’s promise of “hope and change” is an illusion – and suggested that the former President was as guilty of “caging kids” as Trump. She criticized his drone warfare in the Middle East. Perhaps that is what she meant by “getting away with murder.”
Omar is not apologetic. She said that she is willing to be a “Republican punching bag” if it will advance her agenda – presumably breaking America’s alliance to Israel and pushing back against Jews in general. After this bit of partisan apostasy, Omar may discover that she is making herself a Democrat punching bag.
Of course, she claimed that she was not reported accurately. But in an audio tweet, she reaffirmed her attack on her own party, saying “For many of us, we think of ourselves as Democrats, but many of the ways that our Democratic leaders have conducted themselves within the system is not one that we’re all proud of.” She did not mention Pelosi just as the resolution did not mention Omar – but there is no doubt the target of Omar’s remarks.
In what seemed to be intended to be a walk-back interview with CNN, Omar did not walk anything back. She said:
“I will talk about the family separation or caging of kids and people will point out that this was Trump, I mean, this was Obama. And I will say something about the droning of countries around the world and people will say, that was Obama. And all of that is very true.”
It seems that Omar is in a contest with Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Rashida Tlaib to see who can create the most controversy and headaches for the Democratic Party. Much too early to pick a winner in that competition, but Omar is showing real potential.
So, there ‘tis.

    In the event that Larry Horist scans these comment boards, a suggestion for him:

    Your columns are unnecessarily difficult to read because of lack of extra spacing between paragraphs.

    They’re only slightly better than run-on texts with no paragraphing at all.

    Some readers will have no problems with that presentation, but others will, and the fix is as simple as introducing a simple command at the outset of the commentary.

    That Omar can without reservation point to faults in the opposing political party as well as in her own, AND chide the Jewish State, makes her my political hero!

      Are you really such a moronic ” Dick’s Head “? It’s putrid slime like you & Omar that make this world a more dangerous place to live in, than our planet deserves. Go climb back up your own feces filled stinking arse . . . & stay there enjoying your own rot.

        Drew & Julz: It’s understandable that you’d be so terrified of her. She’s everything that you’re not: strong, brave, capable, and honest.

          Her ultimate honesty will be demonstrated when she makes you kneel and declare submission to Allah or lose your head.

          Ultimately, it’s not just Jews she’s after.
