Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has a past of which every patriot needs to be aware.
While serving at the state level, Omar voted against legislation that would allow life insurance companies to deny payouts to family members of terrorists.
The premise behind the law was that life insurance companies should not have to pay benefits to family members if the policyholder died while committing an act of terror.
The legislation almost passed unanimously, as Omar was only one of two members of her State House to vote against it.
This should be troubling on several different fronts.
However, it’s not the only disturbing news about Omar.
Inclusion and Rehabilitation
Omar recently made the news for once asking for leniency for a group of Somali-Americans that had tried to join the Islamic State.
According to Omar, these individuals needed to be treated with kindness to show them the error of their ways.
She believes we should provide rehabilitation and inclusion to encourage these individuals to join our society again.
Omar, an open supporter of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions Movement, got in even more trouble last week for making anti-Semitic comments on Twitter, which drew so much outrage that she was forced to apologize.
Worse, her comments drew support from Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious racist and anti-Semite, who went on another rant against the “wicked Jews” on Sunday.
Next month, Omar is scheduled to speak at an event put on by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization with links to terror groups like Hamas and Hezbollah, the Jerusalem Post reported.
