Rep. Ilhan Omar: Obama was able to ‘get away with murder’ because he had ‘the pretty face and the smile’

Democrats, the new leader of your party has little patience with the old leaders of your party. They have got to go. Henceforth only fully Sharia-compliant leaders who would never engage in the “droning of countries around the world” in order to stymie jihad terror activity will be allowed. That Omar objects even to Obama’s weak and half-hearted opposition to jihad terror is telling. From now on, apparently, the Democrats will be indefatigably committed to absolute surrender.

“The Democrats’ Dilemma,” by Tim Alberta, Politico, March 8, 2019:

MINNEAPOLIS—They have gathered in defiance of the freezing temperatures on a late February’s night, scores of them twirling Somali flags in one hand and American flags in the other, crowding around the arrivals terminal and waiting to welcome one of their own. The vast Somali community in the Twin Cities is like one sprawling extended family, explains Ali Aden, a 39-year-old engineer who came to the U.S. two decades ago, as we survey the scene. When a prominent member of the family arrives, it’s customary to greet them this way.

“Is it Congresswoman Omar they’re waiting for?” I ask, referencing the freshman Democrat whose district we’re standing in.

“Ilhan?” he smiles broadly. “No, no. If it were Ilhan, the whole city would be here.”…

As she saw it, the party ostensibly committed to progressive values had become complicit in perpetuating the status quo. Omar says the “hope and change” offered by Barack Obama was a mirage. Recalling the “caging of kids” at the U.S.-Mexico border and the “droning of countries around the world” on Obama’s watch, she argues that the Democratic president operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor.

“We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,” Omar says. “And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile.”…
