It is almost shocking how the Nu-Democrats can be so brazenly wrong about so many things. We’re accustomed to your average Democrats lying about this or that, getting the facts mixed up here or there, and generally coming at America’s problems from a backwards point of view. But even with that knowledge simmering in the background, it’s hard to understand where people like Bernie Sanders, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are coming from. Their hatred for this country and its history. Their disdain for the greatest economic system in the world. Their clueless rebellion against everything that made America great in the first place. It’s striking.
Of course, there is another.
Worst of all of them is perhaps Rep. Ilhan Omar, who cannot go more than a week without demonstrating her anti-U.S. biases, her pro-Islam sentiments, and her religious bigotry. She, more than Bernie, Tlaib, and even AOC, represents a truly reprehensible and dangerous attitude towards this country and its people. In a world where Democrats were not obsessed with “resisting,” she would have been expelled from Congress six weeks ago. Instead, she’s free to keep making remarks that sound like they come from some other country’s playbook.
In an interview this week with Democracy Now, Omar addressed the impending collapse of Venezuela. Knowing she could not blame socialist policies for what’s happening down there, she did the thing she is most wont to do: She blamed us.
“You know, a lot of the policies that we have put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela,” Omar said. “And we’ve sort of set the stage for where we’re arriving today. This particular bullying and the use of sanctions to eventually intervene and make regime change really does not help the people of countries like Venezuela, and it certainly does not help and is not in the interest of the United States.”
Her remarks drew a harsh rebuke from former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who tweeted: “The avg Venezuelan adult has lost 24 lbs. Babies have no medicine. Families have to walk miles in the heat to get the only meal they may have that day. All bc of the corrupt Maduro regime. Your comments are so far from the truth. Cuba and Russia appreciate your support.”
With her twisted view of the Venezuelan crisis, Omar revealed herself as not just someone who detests Jews and thinks that the worst part of 9/11 was what it did to American Muslims, but also as a student of far-left thinkers like Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn. This is the kind of self-loathing ideology we’ve allowed to infect the U.S. Congress, and at some point, Democratic leaders are going to have to either cut this cancer out…or take full responsibility for it.
