More Evidence of Ilhan Omar’s History of Supporting Terrorism. She Voted Against Stripping Life Insurance Payouts From Terrorists. [Opinion]

OPINION Of Elder Patriot – In 2017, while serving in the Minnesota House, Ilhan Omar voted to allow families of terrorists to financially benefit if they are killed while carrying out a terror attack.  

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Joe Hoppe, was proposed in response the the San Bernardino terror attack that resulted in the shooting deaths of 14 people and the injury of 22 others.

At the time Rep. Hoppe said terrorists “should not benefit” from taking out a life insurance policy. “You should not be able to provide for your heirs or whoever you want by increasing your life insurance policy.”

Rep. Laurie Halverson, a member of Omar’s DFL Party said “If people are using nefarious purposes to take out life insurance policies and unjustly enrich their beneficiaries… that’s going to have a very big impact on ratepayers.” 

Makes sense.  Just not to Omar who was only one of two votes against placing the restriction on the enrichment of terrorists.

The bill passed Minnesota’s House 127-2.  

This should surprise no one as Tucker Carlson recounts her history of anti-American statements:

Rep. Omar can be seen, what appears to me to be, defending Al Qaeda beginning at the :27 mark.

In 2016, while still a Minnesota state rep., Omar asked a judge to go easy on nine men who allegedly tried joining the ISIS terrorist group.

Omar's predisposition to defending Islamic terrorists is likely why she was elected.  The district she represented has been dubbed the “Terrorist Recruitment Capital of the United States.

By 2012, an astounding 45 Somali men from this one district had joined ISIS or Somalia's al-Shabaab.

Omar has also spent time aggressively raising funds for, and justifying the existence of recognized terror groups, while downplaying the 9/11 attacks:

Omar: “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something.”

President Trump wasn’t the only person to recognize the incendiary comments of Rep. Omar.  Responsible Muslims refused to remain mute in the aftermath of Omar’s irresponsible statements dispelling the notion that Trump is Islamophobic:

New Yorkers, perhaps the most diverse population anywhere, also expressed their consternation following Omar’s comment.

Omar wants to abolish ICE, open our borders completely, seemingly blames Jews and Christians for imposing their beliefs on America (what exactly is she doing if not that?), and generally places all the ills of the world at the doorstep of Israel and the United States.

Even current Speaker Pelosi acknowledged the danger of Omar’s bigoted ideology:

It’s going to be your choice in November 2020.  Do you want this:

  • Revoke her citizenship for the family lying about their part in Somalia’s killings. Then get her for lying and marrying her brother, IMMIGRATION FRAUD. Next get her for her illegal income tax filings. Now get her for all her anti-semitism as well as Anti-American policies. Send her back to her homeland and let her own Somalian Government crucify her and her family for their war crimes.
