Ilhan Omar Blames Police for Crime Spike After Advocating to Defund Them

Progressive Rep. Ilhan Omar wants to have her cake and eat it too.

During a town hall event, the Democrat lamented over the rising crime rate in Minnesota and blamed the police. However, Omar seemed to forget that she’s been one of the leading Democrats advocating to defund the police across the nation. What happens when you take away the police and their funding? It doesn’t take an expert to say that crime will spike.

The Daily Wire reports:

“The lawmaker’s comments come as violent crime has surged in Minnesota over the last year, rising 17% in total while setting records for murders,” Fox News reported. “Minneapolis, the state’s largest city, has had to fight the surge while its police department suffers from staffing and morale problems after the death of George Floyd in the city, something some say has fueled the crime surge.”

Omar, speaking at a town hall event on Saturday in Minneapolis, blamed the rising crime rates on the police department in the city, which comes after she previously called them a “cancer,” and said “we need to completely dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department.”

“What we must also recognize is that the reduction in policing currently in our city, and the lawlessness that is happening is due to two things,” Omar claimed. “One, the police have chosen to not fulfill their oath of office and to provide the public safety they are owed to the citizens they serve, right? It’s documented. But even before that, it was documented. The Minneapolis Police Department is the most dysfunctional police department, in our state and probably in the country.”

“The second part is that there has to be accountability,” Omar continued. “And someone that is actually taking responsibility for what the police does invest in to. And that doesn’t exist in this moment. And I do believe that the current charter that we have, that’s tied the hands of those who want to have that accountability, because we are mandated to have a specific amount of policing, we are mandated to, you know, have the kind of these union contracts that we have right now. I don’t know any other big city in the state of Minnesota that has the charter that we have, it just doesn’t exist.”

Maybe Omar will start to learn that police aren’t the ones to blame for issues facing this country, but I wouldn’t count on it

Ilan needs to quit National office and run for State office if she wants to continue being such an idiot. If she honestly believes that Minneapolis should do all these things to defund police, let her be a cancer to only one city, not the whole Nation!!

Instead of trying to convert the US into Somalia the country from which she came. Why does Ilhan Omar not return to Somalia and try to reorganize that country into what she thinks the world should be.

She talks just like AOC, like, you know. What a nitwit, and the only way they will get her corrupt butt out of there is to find some law that she has broken and are able to prosecute it. Marrying your own brother to defraud the immigration system is apparently not enough. Campaign finance violations, also not enough. She is very corrupt but there is no will to prosecute her so she has a license to steal and will have quite a few deaths on her hands in MN as they follow her ideas over a cliff.

This person is a sorry piece of Muslim crap, and has been all her despicable life. She is thoroughly immoral, and should be unseated by vote of the House, as led by the House leadership. Of course, that will not happen as long as the anti American Pelosi is Speaker. The 2022 election is crucial to the continued existence of the Republic.

Would Omar like having had to face a child molester with no police around? Like I did when I was twelve or thirteen?

It is truly a low point in the modern history of the United States when Vladimir Putin makes statements that are more pro American, than the (supposedly) American President. Is the Democrat Party, and the likes of Omar, going all the way down into the political sewer – never to be seen again?
