Democrat Civil War Intensified! Ilhan Omar Calls Obama a ‘Pretty Face’ Who Got ‘Away With Murder’
Democrat Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar ripped former President Barack Obama in an interview published Friday, belittling his “pretty face”, saying his agenda of hope and change was an illusion.
Citing the “caging of kids” at the Mexican border and the “droning of countries around the world” on Obama’s watch, Ilhan Omar claimed:
“We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished.”
Two un-named sources claim Nancy Pelosi downed eight 500 mg Ibuprofen for the headache she immediately got when she heard the news.
The divisive freshman congresswoman made her remarks to Politico.
Speaking about her background and her evolution in politics, Ilhan Omar bashed Obama while commenting that the Democratic Party has become more interested in the status quo than in progressive values.
From the Politico report:
Ilhan Omar was fed up—not so much with Trumpism, or with politics in general, as with the Democratic Party.
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.”
The divisive comments about the former and liberal beloved Democrat President, are only the latest in a long series of incendiary statements that have caused severe tension within the party.
The Politico interview and publication follows the passage of an anti-hate resolution, which was expanded to include various other forms of bigotry amid concerns by some Democrats that a measure focused solely on antisemitism would be too critical of Ilhan Omar.
Earlier this year, Omar had already apologized for a 2012 tweet in which she said Israel had “hypnotized” America. Last month, she had to publically apologize for suggesting that members of Congress support Israel because they are bribed into doing so.
House Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-NY) rebuked Omar’s suggestion and called on her to apologize for her what he referred to as a “vile antisemitic slur.”
Within the groundwork of framing the resolution to condemn antisemitism and Ilhan Omar, the Democrat Civil War came to a head, with Pelosi storming angrily out of at least one meeting. In the end, the resolution was watered down to condemn any and all hate, not focusing o it’s original purpose.
Speaking to reporters Friday, and before the newest ‘Obama’ revelation, Pelosi refused to call on Omar to apologize, claiming the freshman congresswoman didn’t realize her controversial statements about Israel would be received as antisemitic.
“I do not believe she understood the full weight of her words. These words have a history and a cultural impact,” Pelosi said of Omar’s remark.
Well, we will see now what Pelosi thinks of these words from Ilhan Omar towards Barack Obama!
Get the popcorn!
