Ilhan Omar: Let's Face It, Trump Is Only Continuing The Terrible Policies of Barack Obama



Even Barack Obama was a captive of Jewish mind-control rays, opines the illiterate:

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) trashed former President Barack Obama in a new profile of the freshman lawmaker, saying the "hope and change" he offered was a mirage and he was one of many predecessors to President Donald Trump to have "really bad policies."

...

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.

Without naming Obama specifically, Omar said no one should get away with malfeasance in office if they had "the pretty face and the smile."

"We canít be only upset with Trump Ö 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 said. "And thatís not what we should be looking for anymore. We donít 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."

#WOKE

Meanwhile, Julie Kelly applauds the NeverTrumpers for ushering Ilhan Omar and her ilk into Congress and clarifying what this fight is about:

Months before the midterm elections last fall, several self-described "conservatives" implored Americans to vote for Democrats. Still stung that Republicans ignored their advice to reject Donald Trumpís presidential candidacy and unmoved by Trump's solid record of conservative accomplishments in office, these embittered outcasts claimed that a legislative branch controlled by Democrats would cauterize Trump's alleged "authoritarian" tendencies.

The most notable of these windmill tilters, attacking an authoritarian impulse that wasn't there, was George Will...

[I]n a disorganized rant, Will instructed voters to oust Republicans from power. "In today's GOP, which is the presidentís plaything, he is the mainstream," Will wrote in June 2018. "A Democratic-controlled Congress would be a basket of deplorables, but there would be enough Republicans to gum up the Senate's machinery, keeping the institution as peripheral as it has been under their control and asphyxiating mischief from a Democratic House."

Other lesser-known commentators jumped on Will's "Vote Democrat" bandwagon, including author Tom Nichols, losing presidential candidate Evan McMullin, and Will's Post colleagues, Max Boot and Jennifer Rubin. Former George W. Bush aide Michael Gerson argued that a Democratic House was needed because "American politics is in the midst of an emergency." National Review's David French announced right before the 2018 election that he no longer was a Republican and would consider voting for third-party candidates....

[T]hey got their wish: Democrats took control of the House of Representatives in January.


And what a revealing two months it's been so far.

Will's prediction that congressional Democrats would be a basket of left-wing deplorables vastly underestimated the reality. What Will, Nichols and other NeverTrumpers encouraged to be foisted upon our nation is a cabal of cretins devoted to crushing the economic, political, and cultural bones of our body politic in the most ruthless and irreversible way.

And for that alone, perhaps we should thank them. Without the spectacle are now are witnessing, Americans wouldn't have a realistic grasp on the menace that the modern-day Democratic Party poses to our country.
