Rep. Ilhan Omar’s D-M.N. blind rage has taken Washington, D.C. by storm. Her unapologetic anti-Semetic comments this week have catapulted her into the front page of newspapers across the country.
Now, she’s proving that her anger will sweep up anyone whose caught in the crossfire — even her own political allies.
Omar slammed former President Barack Obama in an interview, saying he was a murderer who got away with the crimes because he had a “pretty face.”

In a lengthy interview with Politico, Omar used Obama’s campaign promises against him. She accused him of “perpetuating the status quo” of America and calling his vision of “change” nothing but “a mirage.”
In the political theater that makes up Washington, D.C., attacking your own parties president to the media is the social equivalent to slapping him in the face. But Omar didn’t hold back.
“We can’t be only upset with Trump,” she said. “[Trump’s] 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.”
Obama was responsible for the “caging of kids” she said.

And these are just a couple of issues Omar had with the Obama administration. She believes the former president sold out and operated the government no different than any Republican. And she’s mad about it.
“And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore,” Omar said. “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.”
If House Speaker Nancy Pelosi thought she was having a tough time reeling the freshman congresswomen in before, it seems that Pandora’s Box is official opened. Pelosi spent the week appeasing Omar and her allies over their anti-Semetic hate speech, and it is costing her big time.
Pelosi probably thought Thursday’s resolution vote to condemn all forms of bigotry was the last controversial issue she had to deal with. The resolution passed by a vote of 407-23. The “no” votes all came from the Republican side, which largely expressed resentment about the resolution.
“I thought yesterday’s vote by the House was disgraceful,” President Donald Trump said. “Because … the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party, they’ve become an anti-Jewish party.”
The resolution was contentious over wording – what should have been a nonbinding measure that simply to denounced anti-Semitism. But Democrats refused to simply say, “anti-Semetism is bad.”
The entire ordeal was an embarrassing spotlight on the fracture within the party — and it seems the far-left is pushing for a takeover of the Democratic Party.
Not even Obama is liberal enough for them.
And they’re not going to be silent anymore.
