Dems ‘Defense’ Conference Backfires As Laughing Refusal Stuns

Ilhan Omar won’t verbally condemn Islamic terrorists because she secretly supports them?

How do they get away with this sort of bull?

Freshman Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) held a press conference Monday night to ‘respond’ to the so-called attacks by President Trump.

But, they ended up looking like dummies.

In fact, Ilhan Omar had the perfect chance to prove her critics wrong… but didn’t take it.

Twitchy reported:

AOC and her so-called “squad” of bigoted sorority sisters did themselves few favors with their press conference condemning Donald Trump’s recent remarks about them. Ilhan Omar in particular made a fool of herself, running with debunked narratives (“collusion,” anyone?) and pushing ahead with impeachment talk despite Nancy Pelosi.

She also refused to answer a very straightforward question about her ideology:

Omar says she won’t dignify question of whether she supports al Qaeda:

“It’s beyond time, it’s beyond time, to ask muslims to condemn terrorists,” she says.

Omar’s record:

-Defended terror attacks on Israel
-Advocated for leniency for men convicted of trying to join ISIS
-Voted against ending terrorist life insurance payouts
-Advocated for a Muslim Brotherhood member to be let out of jail
Demonized US troops that killed terrorists

This was a chance for Ilhan Omar to prove her critics wrong … and she failed. Miserably.

She probably thought that she was owning Trump by refusing to “dignify” that question with an answer. In reality, she only gave her critics more ammunition with which to destroy her. Omar has a history of sympathizing with terrorists and communists. Hell, immediately after the press conference today, she refused to condemn Saturday’s attack on a Tacoma ICE facility by an Antifa terrorist.

“Are you against violent jihadis that killed 3000 Americans on 9/11?”

*pauses to think*

“No comment”

And it shouldn’t be hard to say, “No, I don’t support a regime that kills innocent people and oppresses women.” But @IlhanMN couldn’t do it. https://t.co/s9te8ORsRl

Of course she couldn’t do it. This may be the one thing she can’t bring herself to lie about — but she can’t bring herself to tell the truth, either. Because that would require admitting that she’s the garbage person we know her to be.

Parting food for thought:

Remember this when @IlhanMN condemns gun owners for mass shootings, or all white people for racism. https://t.co/j298Xq21x6
