Now, the freshman immigrant from lawless Somali turned United States Congresswoman; Democrat Ilhan Omar has turned her ire on the Minneapolis Police Department, claiming in a tweet that it’s time to disband them.

After 11 days of violent unrest in the district she represents, Omar tweeted a link to a Time Magazine. The article was filled with misleading statements, including the claim that “Minneapolis Police had an opportunity to distance themselves from Derek Chauvin, to express sympathy, to be a calming presence. Instead, they deployed tear gas and rubber bullets, effectively escalating the situation from protest to pitched conflict.” The TIME article doesn’t mention that the Minneapolis Police Department was never given a chance to distance themselves from Officer Chauvin, as the media and cop-hating politicians immediately clumped them all together. TIME didn’t mention that law enforcement officers in the Twin Cities of MN were almost immediately forced to respond to rioters and arsonists, who were hell-bent on destroying Minneapolis and St. Paul. They don’t mention that tear gas and rubber bullets were used to stop all-out anarchy against innocent citizens they took an oath to protect. TIME doesn’t mention the danger hundreds of good cops in the Twin Cities have faced every day since the horrible death of George Floyd at the hands of fired Officer Derek Chauvin—it simply doesn’t fit their narrative.

Omar added: The Minneapolis Police Department has proven themselves beyond reform. It’s time to disband them and reimagine public safety in Minneapolis.

In other words, the woman who’s been accused of campaign finance violations more than once, and marrying her own brother to commit immigration fraud, would like to disband the police force responsible for upholding law and order in her district.

Omar, who is an immigrant from Somali a country known for its lawlessness, should know a thing or two about what a country without public law enforcement looks like; it’s hard to imagine she’s calling for the police force in Minneapolis to disband.

Conservative comedian Mark Dice asks her:

Glen Woodfin suggested that perhaps Omar is suggesting Sharia Law as a part of her “reimagined” police force, tweeting:

Ilhan Omar, your solution would be Sharia Law. We’ve seen it…fathers murdering their daughters and calling it an honor killing. We see gays thrown off buildings. We see women who are raped stoned to death by their accusers.

You can keep your “reimagined” law enforcement.

What do you think about Omar’s comments? Do you agree with her? Do one, two, three, or even four bad cops make an entire police force evil, or is Omar just looking to gain attention from the radical element of her party?
