Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar crossed the line and insulted over 70 million Trump voters calling pro-Trump events around the country “Klan Rallies.”
“He speaks about me at every single rally. It didn’t really matter where he was, sometimes multiple times in a day as he held his Klan rallies throughout the country,” Congresswoman Omar told the Washington Post. (see the video below)
Omar and other members of the progressive left are not happy they are getting the blame for the debacle for House Democrats in November.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) insisted the Democrats must show unity under Biden’s leadership—while also stating the election results showed a desire for “something different” as well as “social and economic justice.”
Asked about the split within the party, Omar said the party was a “big family” and the caucus is “working on behalf of the people.”
“There was a movement that happened this summer. That movement delivered this victory. The rise of the amount of people that registered to vote. We owe it to the movement to make sure that the chaos they voted against does not follow us to our caucus and to make sure that the justice they seeked is implemented in the policies that we advocate for.”
Speaking further of unity, she said: “I know that Biden invited the American people to be a unifying force against darkness and as a caucus we have to be unified against that.
“To think about allowing ourselves to get the Republicans to decide how we are to function as a caucus is really painful, because this is a party that has lied, that has smeared, that has used everything that they can to attack us.
“It’s a party that has been against the social and economic justice we’ve all been fighting for. It’s a party that has allowed for chaos to reign for four years. So the American people have decided to put us in charge, to say they want something different. And we can’t disappoint them in this moment.”
Sharing a segment of this interview on her own Twitter profile, Omar wrote: “We must deliver for the people and meet the moment not allow Republicans to sow division and create chaos that within our caucus. Legislating justice and equity is our mandate.”
Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), another member from the progressive wing of the party, similarly shared the sentiment that change should be delivered.
“We had a record turnout of young people, of black and brown voters in swing districts. We flipped states like Georgia and Arizona because people want a positive vision of the future,” she said, in a separate interview on MSNBC.
