A Little Late to the Republican Ilhan Omar Roast
Sometimes there’s a benefit to hanging back a few days while the opposition simmers down a bit and the support builds. Opposition flares and support mostly comes along at a very slow simmer.
Essentially, Ilhan thinks Israel has gone way too far in its Palestinian policies and questions the U.S. continued support. That set off Republicans, who never saw a right-wing nation they didn’t love. They accused Omar of leading the Democratic Party way too far left. That said, you wouldn’t have to be very far left to be way left of where the GOP finds itself today. They want guns for everyone, voting privileges for everyone who’s white, no action on climate change, a clean slate for everyone who attacked the Congress on January 6th and praise for all 88% of House and Senate Republicans who refused (and continue to refuse) Joe Biden’s election as president. Oh, and of course Omar is Muslim, one of two such Representatives currently elected to the House. That really drives them nuts.
