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.

        Well, it’s clear who’s the low life at this party. If that’s how you discuss political differences maybe you should crawl back under whatever slimey rock you crawled out from. Better yet – go join the GOP. They seem to appreciate creepy crawlers like you.

      I agree that her clarity about policy is an asset. However, there are some important differences between Obama policy and Trump policy that she is not paying enough attention to. By the way, Larry Horst’s article and the way he presents her is slanted and unfair.

          Honest? Do yourself a favor and actually do a study of her, even a short study will convince anyone with an IQ of more than single digit that she is a dedicated Islamist who has one objective, to destroy our way of life and force Sharia down our throats. I for one do not want any part of any religion that worships a pedophile. She is VERY dangerous to our country and way of life.

          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.

      NEVER intervene when your opponent is shooting themselves in the foot.

      The weird thing about Omar is that she only observes hijab every now and then. Normally, she just wears this hideous shower cap instead. Also, people seem to forget that she’s in bed with CAIR, which is a front group of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

    I recall when in college in the mid-sixties we often debated a theory called The Fall of Western civilization.
    Briefly, it was thought that affluent western societies would reach a point where their death rates exceeded births…more labor would be needed to keep up their economic growth so controlled work permits, visas and controlled immigration would be allowed…by controlled it would mean the newbies would have time to assimilate to the host nations culture, laws, language and even relgion.
    At the exact same time, in the third world nations, the birth rate would far exceed the death rate. This would lead to huge shortages of the basics needed for people to survive, increases in unemployment, leading to chaos and perhaps revolution. Also, we would see programs of genocide and ethnic cleansing on the increase …all of these factors would send millions of refugees fleeing …
    … where?
    …to the affluent western nations who would take them, en masse.
    These refugees would be relocated into small areas but in large groups. Those groups would never assimilate into their hosts system of laws, culture or language. They would keep their own culture, laws, customs and languages.
    …soon, these groups would get jobs and educations which would lead to many getting into politics…after another short period of time, we’d see that these one time refugees would rise up the political system ladder and eventually would be able to pass legislation that favored their little islands of culture scattered throughout the host nation…
    …after even more time their population would have grown even faster than that of the indigent folks of the host nation. They would gain more power, more money and more votes.
    The native-born folks of the host nation would become the minority ( NOT the ruling minority)…suddenly, the now large and powerful refugee groups will have taken over the host nation without firing a shot, and would have converted it to a mirror image of what their home nation was, or something very similar to it…
    Not only is this theory logical and thus possible but it is actually happening as I write…our nations birth rate is lower than the death rate and, thanks to the democrats and including present large numbers of illegal immigrants living here and adding in the recent past slugs of refugees they’ve allowed , we see that the takeover I’ve written about has not only begun but is ramping up quickly.
    …look at England if you dont believe this to be possible…roaming gangs of Islamists ranging around London and assaulting women…large groups of Islamic protestors openly carrying signs vowing to overthrow the present government of England and replace it with a Sharia Law based society ..Not possible..? Then you have not STUDIED six thousand years of recorded human history…

    Know what is ironic? many people on the left craving the votes of these refugees and illegals are too freaking blind to realize that the nation they claim to love may soon no longer exist in any way shape or form…all because of them and their thirst for power and wealth… all done without firing one single bullet…!!!
