Ilhan Omar was born in Somalia and has been in the United States for 25 years. She’s only been a citizen for 20 years, but she wants to dismantle our entire economic & political system because it’s “oppressive.” The far-left already wants to defund our police, now it’s the entire system. The system that gave rise to the greatest & freest nation in the history of the world. If Ilhan & her ilk don’t like it here, they are free to leave. I’m sure the cesspool that is Somalia would love to have them.
“Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar called for the “dismantling” of the U.S. economy and political system Tuesday.
“As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality,” Omar said. “We cannot stop at criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”
Omar held an event Tuesday in her home state of Minnesota with members of the Minnesota People of Color and Indigenous Caucus. Omar tweeted earlier Tuesday that the purpose of the event was to address “racism in policing” in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death.
The murder of George Floyd reawakened calls to address racism in policing and reform our criminal justice system.

Omar has joined calls from local Democratic leaders to defund the police after four Minneapolis police officers were fired and charged in connection to Floyd’s death. The Minneapolis City Council unanimously voted to get rid of the city’s police department in June.
Omar said she supported the vote because she believes the Minneapolis Police Department is beyond reform.
“You can’t really reform a department that is rotten to the root,” Omar said at the time. “What you can do is rebuild. And so this is our opportunity, you know, as a city to come together, have the conversation of what public safety looks like, who enforces the most dangerous crimes that take place in our community.”

Ilhan has already called for abolishing ICE so it should come as no surprise that she now wants to abolish all US institutions.
Via PJ Media:
“Speaking at a campaign event for Senator Bernie Sanders, Rep. Ilhan Omar said that the United States can’t claim to stand up for human rights around the world while “violating human rights at our border.”
“If you believe,” Omar said while standing in front of a crowd in Nashua, New Hampshire, “that we can no longer pretend to stand for human rights around the world while we are constantly violating human rights at our border is radical, then we should all be proud to be radicals.”
On Twitter, the congresswoman from Minnesota went even further. “We need to abolish ICE,” she said about the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, “create pathways to citizenship, and welcome refugees with open arms.”

Ilhan is also continuing to funnel a ton of money to her husband’s consulting firm, the New York Post reported today:
“WASHINGTON — Rep. Ilhan Omar has continued quietly funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars to her new husband’s consulting film, including a $189,000 windfall in March — just weeks after they announced they had tied the knot, campaign data shows.
The payments between the Minneapolis Democratic congresswoman and Tim Mynett prompted at least one ethics complaint in 2019 after The Post first revealed allegations — made by Mynett’s then-wife in her divorce filing — that Omar was having an affair with the member of her political consulting team, who was at the time married to another woman. Omar was married to her second husband at the time.
But that doesn’t appear to have stopped the now-married couple, with Mynett’s E Street Group collecting $292,814.99 from his wife’s campaign this year for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and research services, according to the Federal Election Commission filings.
In total, Mynett has received a whopping $878,930.65 from Omar’s campaign since he began working for her in 2018, raising eyebrows among watchdogs and political law experts who say the practice is rife with cronyism.
The majority of those payments were made after the Somali-born lawmaker’s victory in the solidly Democratic seat at the November 2018 midterm elections.
Omar is by far the E Street Group’s biggest client, according to Open Secrets data, with nearly one in every three of Omar’s campaign dollars going to her alleged lover’s firm as of last August, according to the Washington Examiner.
The FEC allows lawmakers to hire family members or spouses to work on their campaigns, making the arrangement technically aboveboard, but multiple political experts told The Post Tuesday they believe the practice should be outlawed.
“It should not be allowed,” said attorney Richard W. Painter, who served as chief ethics lawyer in the George W. Bush White House.
“I think it’s a horrible idea to allow it, given the amount of money that goes into these campaigns from special interests,” he continued.”
Sounds like Ilhan is in favor of dismantling our political system in favor of an extremely corrupt one that would benefit her. That might be OK in Somalia, but we don’t want any of that here.
