Rep Ilhan Omar- Dragging The Foreign Affairs Committee Off The Rails

 In opinion, Politics

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had to know that putting an anti-Semite who actually hates America on the Foreign Affairs Committee was a bad idea. Rep Ilhan Oman “attacked” Venezuelan envoy Elliott Abrams, demanding to know whether if “a genocide will take place and you will look the other way because American interests were being upheld.”

Abrams refused to answer the question, calling the line of questioning “ridiculous.”

Fox reported,

“That is a ridiculous question,” Abrams responded when Omar asked him if he thought the massacre was a “fabulous achievement.” “I am sorry, but I am not going to respond to that kind of an attack.”

Omar then asked if he would “support crimes against humanity or genocide if you believe they were serving U.S. interests as you did in Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua.” Abrams in the past had defended Guatemalan dictator Efraín Ríos Montt, who oversaw a campaign in which thousands of Guatemalans were either massacred or disappeared and who was later convicted of genocide. Omar, though, has also faced criticism for challenging the U.S. policy in Venezuela, and her questions appeared to suggest active U.S. opposition to Maduro, who has overseen a complete economic collapse in Venezuela, could spiral into “genocide.”

Abrams responded: “I don’t believe this line of questioning is meant to be real questions and so I will not reply.”

Omar then said she wanted to know whether “a genocide will take place and you will look the other way because American interests were being upheld.” Abrams said the American policy in Venezuela is to support the Venezuelan people’s effort to restore democracy.

The US has chosen, along with numerous other nations, to back Juan Guaido as the legitimate president of Venezuela, as we have previously reported. Nicholas Maduro is a Socialist dictator that has ravaged the nation, leaving its people in horrific conditions. Omar wants to talk about massacres, but doesn’t want to talk about Venezuelans who are suffering tremendously in a government that is killing them from malnutrition, disease, and poverty.

That’s the genocide. It has nothing to do with the United States- it has to do with a Venezuelan dictator.

    The world has been in a normal recurring bout w/Death Control in places where there’s NO Birth Control such as the M.E. (3.1kids/woman) and Central America where Catholic’s policy leads to high birthrates (It’s why POPE says “Stop Breeding like Wabbits”) This Phenomenon is described by 1993 Solar Mortality Theory that also DEFINES Modern Historical Record wherein every 3 generations GENOCIDE occurs as normal FINAL SOLUTION to high birthrates> It started in 1796 w/discovery of Vitamin Deficiency as root cause of diseases of malnutrition wherein a Population Explosion ensued> The Yrs are 1860s, 1910s, 1940s & Now spaced 3 generations apart> Venezuela is an artificially enduced GENOCIDE about to occur due to SOCIALISTIC DICTATORSHIP which has eliminated living resources similar to what DIM’s “Green New Deal” would cause, since it forgets we ALL EAT FOSSIL FUEL, so IF U eliminate it we STARVE

    Having three branches of government is what keeps the american dream alive. No single person or group can effectively overturn the others, and all are protected by the 1st and 2nd amendments, verbally and physically. While I find it personally disgusting that a ‘new’ strain of religion has found it’s way into our federal politics, it’s the backbone of our success. On a personal note, I believe we ought to take a look at what is happening in Minnesota as far as demographics is concerned, history has shown that religious migration creeps from entry points and spreads, one block at a time. best wishes.

    Funny how she leaves out the last two genocides that happened were under democratic party presidents not the republicans. Bill Clinton had Rwanda and Obama had Syria but I guess like all things democrats racism, sexism and now genocide are okay as long as there is a letter D at the end of your title.
