Liberal “Squad” member Rep. Ilhan Omar is angry with Democrat Senator Joe Machin because he shared the truth about progressives. The West Virginia Senator made the far too honest claims that the progressive narrative is the reason behind Democrats’ failures to meet the 2020 election expectations. Dems touted the belief they would win in a landslide presidential election, claim control of the Senate from Republicans, and manage to flip multiple congressional seats over to their side. Obviously, none has actually taken place.
In a tweet, Rep. Omar referenced to tight Senate races happening in Georgia between incumbent Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler against Democrat challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. The races have moved to run-off elections that will occur in January.
Stop worrying about progressives, this might be the reason we don’t win the Senate races in Georgia.
Good grief 🤦🏽♀️ https://t.co/r45ibpRs7K

Omar is upset that during an interview Sen. Machin made it very clear he would oppose efforts to pack the courts and end the filibuster in the Senate.
According to Fox News:
“There’s a lot of people that are concerned. There’s a lot of fear tactics…being used right now,” Manchin said.
He brought up Georgia’s runoff races and noted that if the state’s two Democratic Senate candidates end up winning their respective races, and Republican Sens. Dan Sullivan of Alaska and Thom Tillis of North Carolina win reelection, the Senate would be evenly split between Republicans and Democrats.
“Let me be clear: I will not vote to pack the courts & I will not vote to end the filibuster,” Manchin wrote in a tweet sharing the clip. “The U.S. Senate is the most deliberative body in the world. It was made so that we work together in a bipartisan way. If you get rid of the filibuster, there’s no reason to have a Senate.”
Far-left Democrats like Rep. Omar and the rest of “The Squad” have created tension in the Democrat caucus as a result of trying to push their progressive and often socialist agendas.
