I am not sure about the title, as it still remains to be seen if she can keep her seat. I personally find her quite terrible and divisive and wouldn’t vote for her if she were up for election in our district.

She is no AOC either, the latter is quite smart and great at trolling. With Ilhan Omar, I don’t see much attraction and potential regardless of where one stands politically.

I can't stand either one of them or their economics. But I think they add much needed shrewdness, courage, enthusiasm and excitement to the Democratic party. The Schumers of the world need to go, they are no match for the GOP.

Too divisive? Anti-Semitic?

Wow, the people who are against her must be a bigots and Islamophobes. Why would anyone (who's not a racist) think this is a problem?

From the hadith Sahih Mulsim 7339:

"Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger ( ‌صلی ‌اللہ ‌علیہ ‌وسلم ‌ ) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews."

This verse is very tolerant and inclusive. Don't agree? Well, then, you are a racist.

Courage? She is an anti-American piece of shit plain and simple. She came here as a refugee and got elected into government. She and her story is truly the pinnacle of "the american dream." Instead of being grateful and thankful for the freedom and opportunity in this country she decides to desecrate it tear it down. She isn't courageous...she's an enemy of the state. 

- Downplays 911
- Downplays Sharia Law
- Condemns America for blackhawk down even though they saved roughly 100k Somali individuals with their efforts.
- Says we need to bring down the system and basically end capitalism
- Funnels campaign donations to her brothers marketing business
- Spends all day tweeting "cancel rent, student loans, mortgages", "universal healthcare for all no matter what." increase medicare and social security for all."
- Her city is in shambles and the police just said "Obey criminals because we can't do anything." Her city looks like the scene from The Dark Knight where Scarecrow releases the insane Asylum prisoners on Gotham.

Like it or not, AOC and Omar are the new face of the Democratic Party. The takeover is complete by the LEFT.

It will either mark the end of the Democratic Party as it crashes and burns (like our Democratic big cities), or it means the end of America as we know it.

It's simple to see the Squad and these other losers hate America and everything it stands for - so my bet is the Democratic Party
crashes and burns - as Schumer/Pelosi/Biden have lost control for good.

Unfortunately, there has never been a more exciting time to be an American than now.

True. Reminds me of the old Chinese curse.... "May you live in interesting times." Rather ironic that it is Chinese.

Isn't this the type of rhetoric that used be spewed about the Irish, then the Italians, etc...racial intolerance for immigrants is nothing new in America!  Cheers!

Retarded!  Not even American 12-year olds are this dense about politics.  These "extremists" on the left, have arrived because of the "extremists" on the right who directed the Republican agenda for the last 20 yearsl  Both sides are guilty, but you are oblivious to your own follies.  Cheers!
