Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) shocked the world on Tuesday by calling for the dismantling of the U.S. political and economic system.
Omar’s comments sparked outrage, and Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) announced soon after that Ilhan Omar should resign because of the outrageous statement.
Omar is a first-generation Somali refugee who came to America from a Kenyan refugee camp in 1995 when she was 13 years old. She became a US citizen in 2000 at the age of 17. Her story is a quintessential American success story up until the point that she turned around and began attacking the very foundations of American society as she launched her political career in 2016.
On Tuesday, she told the Minnesota People of Color and Indigenous Caucus:
As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality. We cannot stop at criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.
Blackburn didn’t hesitate to call out Omar’s abuse of her position, tweeting on Tuesday:
Ilhan Omar took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution, not shred it. Omar and her Marxist comrades are a threat to our Democracy. Omar should resign.
Of course, any anger from the non-progressive contingent of our government and citizenry was flippantly dismissed.
Omar’s fellow far-left progressive colleague, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) tweeted not long after the fact, “my sister
@IlhanMN said it best: We must begin with dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it. Pass it on.”
Progressives have made it quite clear that the recent civil unrest and political turmoil is not just about police brutality. If it was, they would have gladly voted in favor of Sen. Tim Scott’s (R-SC) police reform bill.
Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have blatantly admitted that they’re leading the progressive charge to dismantle America as we know it. We should take them at their word.
