Whether anyone realizes it or not it was a big compromise to allow this woman to wear her native head covering in Congress. She’s the only one in Congress wearing it. Why did they compromise in the first place? Her head covering has nothing to do with Congress. She’s supposed to be representing the United States Congress, not Somalia. What she wears outside of Congress is her business but as long as she’s in Congress it’s a big deal and should never be tolerated or allowed. It’s no wonder we have problems because many in Congress is not thinking about what they’re doing.
What is wrong with you Minnesotans to allow her to be elected in the first place? The election HAD to be RIGGED!! INVESTIGATE IMMEDIATELY!!
Minnesota has one of the largest Muslim communities...district 5....I doubt she will be easy to replace. I think this one is elected to help topple our democracy. Pay closer attention to this Trojan Horse.
Why wait until the next election?!? Impeach her! Worse than her anti-semitic remarks is the fact that she intends, with the help of fellow islamists, to conquer america for allah. THAT is at least sedition, if not traitorous. Wake up, America!
Good. You Minnesotans need to get your state back on track. Being nice to others and helping the needy is wonderful; petting and hand feeding rattlesnakes and cobras is naive, unwise, and downright dangerous.
That’s two years from now. MN needs a recall election and remove her from office. This is a lot of hot air, if they were serious they would be moving to remove her now.
She should have never been elected anyway. She married her own brother for him to become a citizen! That’s illegal...a violation of our immigration laws!
I couldn't care less whether the Dems find an alternate replacement to support in a 2020 run. Truth is we should hope and pray that the Republicans in Minnesota find a very capable candidate to oppose her.
This is the only way to get rid of crooked politicians
August, 1946: The citizens of Athens, Tennessee stage an armed revolt against their corrupt local government. People had long been outraged by the local Democratic machine, headed by Boss E.H. Crump, which maintained power through graft and electoral fraud, and used the local sheriff's department as a tool of oppression and brutality. The machine also kept tight control over the region's newspapers and its grasp extended to every part of local government: said one veteran returning from WWII, "You couldn't even get hired as a schoolteacher without their okay, or any other job." The sheriff's department routinely rousted returning G.I.s and hit them with trumped up fees and fines to steal as much of their pay as possible.
Receiving no help from the federal government - The Department of Justice had investigated election fraud in 1940, 1942, and 1944, but had failed to take any effective action - tensions grew until the August 1946 election, when a group of G.I.s put forward their own slate of candidates in an attempt to overthrow the Crump machine once and for all. They were met on Election day by false arrests, vote fraud, and voter intimidation. Things finally came to a head when an elderly black farmer was turned away from the polls, and subsequently beaten by a policeman with brass knuckles when he and the veteran assigned as a poll watcher objected. The farmer tried to escape, but was shot in the back and killed.
The people had had enough. A group of veterans and other citizens gathered together and, still desperate for a government solution, telegraphed the Governor of Tennessee and the US Attorney General pleading for help. But when no response came, and they learned that the sheriff had sent armed deputies to the polling places, the citizens decided that a show of force was necessary. A small group of men broke into the National Guard Armory and stole 60 rifles and a couple of tommyguns, armed the crowd, and went on the march.
By then, word had spread that the sheriff's deputies had seized the ballot boxes and taken them to the local jail. Using the military tactics that they had learned in WWII, the vets quickly developed a battle plan and laid siege to the jail. They knew that they had to take control of the ballots before the Crump machine could arrange for reinforcements, and before they could complete any plans for vote manipulation. Several hundred armed citizens surrounded the jail and traded gunfire with the sheriff and his deputies. The fighting continued through the night, with small arms fire and even dynamite, but by 3:30 AM the deputies were beaten and finally surrendered.
With their surrender, the ballot boxes were recovered; the G.I. candidates had defeated the Crump machine candidates by a 3:1 margin.
The House can expel Omar from Congress, but they obviously aren’t interested in that. Instead the House wasted a ton of time passing a resolution condemning anti-semitism (think about that for a second) without specifically naming Omar. I agree with others that Minnesota should recall her. Michigan should do the same.
