You have to hand it to the radical left of the Democrat Party. Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar said that America’s economic and political systems must be “dismantled.”
What a way to show Americans a sense of deep gratitude for not only rescuing the Somali born asylum seeker from a refugee camp in Kenya but having a system that allowed her to be elected to the highest level of government in that same country.
Not so fast. Even in the woke state of Minnesota, the Star-Tribune – the state’s largest paper – has endorsed Antone Melton-Meaux, a primary challenger to Omar. The paper’s editorial noted,
“Melton-Meaux brings a different sensibility to this race, one grounded in helping resolve disputes to move forward — a skill this country is much in need of. Whether it’s health care, criminal justice or affordable housing, Melton-Meaux appears progressive, but pragmatic. While Omar wants to lead a movement, Melton-Meaux seeks to serve the Fifth District…
…Omar’s 2018 victory launched her into the national spotlight as the first Muslim woman and first refugee elected to Congress. But her time has been marred by missteps, including remarks on Israel widely regarded as anti-Semitic, an outsized number of missed votes, and campaign-finance issues. Omar has sent more than $1.6 million to her husband’s D.C. political consulting firm, E Street Group, and is herself the target of a Federal Election Commission complaint regarding travel expenses.”
It is worth pointing out that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t make the cut of Obama’s NY house seat endorsements.
