How is she still a congresswoman?
According to The Daily Wire, Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) blamed America for floods that happen in other countries.
She made her remarks while speaking at a Democracy Now and Rising Majority event.
“And so when, um, when we think about it now in Congress we’re having a conversation about cross-border, um, uh, negotiations happening for workers because all of our destinies are tied together,” Omar claimed. “When you see a Somali refugee or an Iraqi refugee or a Libyan refugee, we often are like, ‘Oh, this is my neighbor, they must have survived some struggle.’”
“We don’t ever pause to think, what American policy made them come over here, right?” Omar continued. “When you see a flooding happening, um, in a country abroad and you are, um, urgently raising money for the these lives to be saved, you don’t think about how have I contributed to the climate warming that has led to these [flash] floodings and these catastrophes that are taking place abroad.”
“And so when we are now thinking about a new way of re-imagining a vision of what our foreign policy should be and, as I will introduce next week our pathway to peace in thinking about the world, it is important for us to have these connections between what sanctions could mean for the the destruction of life,” Omar continued.
