Ilhan Omar’s penchant for controversy is causing Democrats massive headaches.
And with less than two months to go before the Presidential Election, Omar’s latest controversy could not come at a worse time.
That’s because Ilhan Omar released one video that blew up in the Democrats’ faces.
Democrats fear Donald Trump will turn the election away from a referendum on the coronavirus pandemic to a choice between which of the candidates could best restore law and order.
Ilhan Omar helped that cause by releasing a stunning video where Omar publicly praised the rioters burning down American cities like Minneapolis or Kenosha.
“As we speak, we are in the midst of an ongoing uprising over centuries of racial neglect and oppression,” Omar began.
“We can’t talk about the protests in Minneapolis or Kenosha … without first looking inward,” Omar added.
Omar claimed the riots were justified because America is a racist country and capitalism is evil.
“We maintain a system that binds millions to desperate poverty, a system that doesn’t provide the most basic necessities, like food, shelter, and medicines,” Omar continued.
“Whether they are brutalized by police, by austerity economics, or by politicians who simply do not care about us, our nation is crying out desperately for change. We need to fundamentally change the way our society treats its most vulnerable because this has gone [on] long enough,” Omar concluded.
Donald Trump is making the case to voters that Joe Biden will be a puppet for the radical Left in Congress that will dictate the policy agenda in a Biden administration.
Biden will never condemn Omar for her comments supporting the riots – he has yet to call out Antifa or Black Lives Matter by name – which will only add heft to this argument that Biden is a figurehead for radicals like Ilhan Omar.
