Busted: Rep. Ilhan Omar deletes tweet after debunking her own claim
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is eating her words this weekend.
After Omar claimed that a news outlet misquoted her making disparaging comments about former President Barack Obama, the freshman congresswoman posted an audio tape of the interview to prove her point. But according to Fox News, the tape actually proved that her critics were correct.
Omar has since deleted the tweet.
Moving Far Left
If Democrats are not careful, newly-elected Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is going to cost them more than just the next election.
To most conservatives, Barack Obama was about as far left as one could imagine. But while his loyalty to the country was questioned at times, the accusations he faced were docile compared to recent criticisms of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
Saying Omar may be anti-American is not a far-right wing conspiracy theory. Her actions repeatedly question where her true loyalties lie.
Consider the fact Omar toured with Witness for Peace, a group that is openly against American policies and its military.
Consider the numerous posts on her social media accounts that are both anti-Semitic and anti-American.
The cherry on top is Omar’s public pleas for leniency for ISIS sympathizers.
Causing More Problems
But that’s not all. Most recently, scathing comments Omar made about Barack Obama have to come to light.
While Obama is generally regarded by liberals as the most successful presidency in recent Democrat history, Omar accused him of getting away with murder.
In fact, according to Omar, Trump’s policies, which are widely criticized by Democrats, are nothing more than an extension of Obama’s policies.
However, she claimed he was able to get away with such atrocities because of his good looks and smile.
Yet, through all of this, Democrat leadership has failed to rein her in or criticize her for her comments.
That inaction has started to stir rumblings throughout the Democratic Party, especially among Jewish-American lawmakers.
Several presidential candidates, however, have actually voiced their support for Omar, including Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
If Ilhan Omar is the new face of the Democratic Party, Democrats may soon find themselves without much support in this country, as even the most leftist liberals should have issues with Omar.
