Ilhan Omar attacks Obama: “We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished”

Ilhan Omar attacks Obama: “We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished”

How will Democrats react now that Omar is taking on their idol over his “droning of countries around the world”?

As the chaos within the Democrat Party continues, Politico interviewed Democrat Minnesota Reps. Ilhan Omar and Dean Phillips about the future of the party.

Omar dished out harsh words for her party, but took a particular aim at President Barack Obama.

*UPDATE 7:32PM: Omar tweeted out that Politico twisted her words, even releasing audio. One problem: the audio backs up Politico’s article.

Omar went into politics in 2016 when she ran for a state seat in Minnesota. She managed to defeat a 22-term incumbent before she decided to head to Washington.

Why did Omar choose politics and a place in Congress? If you think it’s President Donald Trump, think again (emphasis mine):

As she saw it, the party ostensibly committed to progressive values had become complicit in perpetuating the status quo. Omar says the “hope and change” offered by Barack Obama was a mirage. Recalling the “caging of kids” at the U.S.-Mexico border and the “droning of countries around the world” on Obama’s watch, she argues that the Democratic president operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor.

“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,” Omar says. “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.”

First off, she admits that caging of kids at the border began under Obama. One would think Trump started it the way the media and pundits go after him.

Back in June 2018, photos surfaced of children in cages, which the media blamed Trump. Breitbart News quickly reported that pictures came from 2014 under Obama’s tenure and that Brandon Darby (who provides excellent reports and pictures from the border) wrote about the incidents in 2014.

In April 2018, Trump asked Congress to close the loophole that separates children from their parents once they cross the border. He asked lawmakers to change it “so that minors can be swiftly deported from the U.S. with their border-crossing parents.” This has not happened yet.

Second, Omar reveals that her tone and that of other freshman Democrat representatives will not change even if the establishment tries to shut them down:

“I don’t believe that tiptoeing is the way to win the hearts and the minds of the people,” she says. “I get saddened by some of my freshman colleagues who can’t understand that within their districts the idea of Medicare for All is extremely popular. The Green New Deal is a very popular idea in their districts. Making sure that we have a final fix to our broken immigration system is very popular in their districts. What they pay attention to is the rhetoric that says, ‘This is a red-to-blue district, you have to be careful, you can’t talk about these policies.’ Well, in reality, these people are like everyone else: They struggle with the cost of health care, they struggle with our broken infrastructure, they struggle with having an economy that brings them into the 21st century. And we have to be willing to have those conversations.”

“As much as other people are uncomfortable, I’m excited about the change in tone that has taken place that is extremely positive. The insightful conversations that we’re having about money and its influence in Washington. And my ability, I think, to agitate our foreign policy discussions in a way that many of my colleagues who have been anti-intervention, anti-war have been unable to do in the past,” she says. “So, I’m OK with taking the blows if it means it will ignite conversations that no one was willing to have before.”

I suspect the Democrats will react the way they have with Omar’s anti-Semitic: nothing. I don’t know if they believe she is not a danger or that she will go away on her own, but the Democrats have always been obsessed with showing unity. Maybe Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will say that once again Omar doesn’t understand the weight of her words the way she excused Omar’s anti-Semitism.

The new Speaker of the House. Pelosi must be having second thoughts about deciding not to retire in 2016.

    I said it before Pee-Losi was made Screecher of the House a second time….She’s gonna regret this more than anything in her 9 decades of life.

She doesn’t understand that she just called Obama a murderer.

    Rick in reply to Petrushka. | March 8, 2019 at 2:34 pm

    It was not intentional.

    Virginia42 in reply to Petrushka. | March 8, 2019 at 2:54 pm

    Oh, she understands.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to Petrushka. | March 8, 2019 at 4:32 pm

    Isn’t Obama a Murderer? as you say?

    We don’t hold people who speak in public to what we think they said or what some other person says they meant. We hold them to what they actually say.

    We already know they are all pathological liars. We should never treat such people with respect. They are dangerous. The only way to protect ourselves from them is to believe it when they speak hatefully or call for violence against us but never believe that they are love us and are on our side. They are liars.

    No, she didn’t. “Getting away with murder” is a standard figure of speech, and you know that very well.

Conversations … yeah, right. Just try starting a conversation about her loud and proud in-your-face anti-Semitism and just watch how the MSM/DNC axis reacts.

Progressivism = Maoist Red Guard revolutionaries.

She’s an immigrant from another culture. She doesn’t fully understand the meaning of what she says or how her words may be interpreted by others.

– Nancy Pelosi, et al.

    Rick the Curmudgeon in reply to MTED. | March 9, 2019 at 7:09 pm

    She’s had twenty years to learn it. And oh by the way, Jews didn’t put you in that camp Ilhan.

Enemy Inside the Gates. What could possibly go wrong within an “inclusive” political party? The longer the Dems ignore their problem (as does the EU) the harder it will get to stop it.

It’s kinda fun to watch the Dem leaders try to aim loose cannons like Omar, AOC, and other leftist rock-stars.

So if a murderer, or, dare say it, a murderer, tyrant, slaver, wife-beater, thief, torturer, rapist, and kiddie-diddler were to wrap themselves up in a lot of flowery words and glorious pretense… then Ilhan is saying we shouldn’t balk at criticizing them?

Thankfully, these people don’t have the sense not to prematurely overplay their hands.

Yes, please! I’ll have extra butter on mine. ???????? ????

She’s a crazed Moslem from Somalia. She’s never made the transition to America. She epitomizes the kind of person we do not want coming to this country.

That voters in MN elected her tells me it’s a state filled with nitwits. This woman is barely literate!

she will be on the wrong side of the coming war

    JusticeDelivered in reply to stutz bearcat. | March 8, 2019 at 4:58 pm

    I think the military should invite her to a drone demonstration, where she has an honored space to view the drone coming in, opps. Better yet, invite Obama to escort her.

stutz bearcat | March 8, 2019 at 2:15 pm

someone needs to ask her where the next wet burka contest is

Thall shalt not disrespect the Almighty Barack…

I have never understood why American Jews constantly vote Democrat and even in this case the protest was lukewarm. Some stood up to her, but many didn’t. When she is emboldened to attack even more, I wonder if everyone will again meekly turn the other cheek?

    JusticeDelivered in reply to MAB. | March 8, 2019 at 5:04 pm

    Most people are introductranated into a specific religion and political orientation pretty early in life. There is a great deal of inertia, it takes a lot to make them reconsider their position.

Valerie Jarrett must be stewing . . .

I’m surprised that Pelosi lost control of the House Dems so quickly and completely, and to a bunch of n00bs. It’s been obvious for a while that she’s deteriorating both physically and mentally, but maybe the decay is more pronounced than we all thought.

The great thing about these people is that they are up for reelection in 2020. If they bring out enough moderate voters in opposition, that could kill a Democrat Presidential bid.

She’s a lawmaker now. She should start introducing resolutions instead of spouting off to the msm. Introduce the “No Dual Citizenship” Resolution, followed by the “obama is a murderer” resolution. She should call for investigations and hearings into obama’s dronings. Let’s get this ball rolling omar. Also, is she really double fisting microphones in that picture?

    JusticeDelivered in reply to CKYoung. | March 8, 2019 at 4:53 pm

    Lots of dual citizenship Jews here, better follow the military’s example, only allow people with an IQ of 90 and up to vote. That would really fix Dem’s wagons.

Who knew Somalians had such contempt for Kenyans?

    Rick the Curmudgeon in reply to MrE. | March 9, 2019 at 7:15 pm

    Somalis and Kenyans don’t have a whole lot of love for each hundreds of years.

      Rick the Curmudgeon in reply to Rick the Curmudgeon. | March 9, 2019 at 7:17 pm

      Let’s try this again:
      Somalis and Kenyans don’t have a whole lot of love for each other, and as much the case with things moslemic, it goes back hundreds of years.

Yes , let a terrorist supporter on a committee that has access to classified info . Nothing to go wrong there

    Rick the Curmudgeon in reply to dmi60ex. | March 9, 2019 at 7:19 pm

    Scares the crap outta me and I’m fearless. I’m predicting her getting caught leaking classified information in about six months.

How was it possible that so many people from the equatorial arid country Somalia moved to Minnesota where it isn’t arid nor equatorial?

Two takeaways.
1) She agrees with Clint Eastwood about Obama being and empty suit.
2) Trump is just a more “ghetto” version of Obama. Not polished.

Still long popcorn and shovels.

Stay ready. The brown shirts are getting bolder.

Omar is the official shitstain on the US house. Thanks Minnesota.

She’s trolling the entire nation.

texansamurai | March 8, 2019 at 9:24 pm

am still reeling from the fact that a person like her could have EVER been elected to congress in these united states–her hatred, her bigotry is so blatant,so in-your-face–and the other stunning fact is that her OWN party is apologizing for her, the media making excuses as she ” comes from a different culture and doesn’t understand “–a CHILD is capable of sensing hatred, rabid anger, psychopathic behaviour–are there no adults in the democrat party?–no one to stand up and say: ” this is OUR country, not YOURS to tear down and remake as some shithole third-world ghetto.” ?

A bit unusual to see a Muslim criticize another Muslim.

She is the gift that keeps on giving.
