Ilhan Omar Decides to Vote ‘Present’ On Bill That Acknowledges Armenian Genocide

The following article, Ilhan Omar Decides to Vote ‘Present’ On Bill That Acknowledges Armenian Genocide, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Ilhan Omar continues to find ways to embarrass herself. It’s like she’s playing a game with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) to see who can pull off the dumber stunt on a daily basis. Tuesday belonged to the freshman from Minnesota.

Three members of Congress voted “present” on a bill that recognized Armenian genocide. Omar, a woman who married her brother to evade the law, was one of them.

Isn’t it great how people like her can’t keep their own house in order but want to impose more government on workaday Americans because they think they know better? In case the left has yet to figure it out, it’s reasons like this that Trump will be re-elected.

From Daily Wire:

Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) voted “present” on Monday during a House vote recognizing the Armenian genocide at the hands of the Ottoman Empire by the Young Turk government during World War I.

Lawmakers overwhelmingly passed the resolution titled, “Affirming the United States record on the Armenian Genocide,” which officially recognized and condemned the genocide which resulted in the Young Turks murdering 1.5 million Armenians from 1915 to 1923.

Reactions:

Ilhan Omar’s failure to vote for the Armenian Genocide recognition resolution has everything to do with her respect for Erdogan and his regime’s close ties with her native Somalia. See my article from March to make sense of it:

I’ve been a vocal supporter of @IlhanMN but no more. There was absolutely no reason for her to not vote on something that is solid historical fact and use the typical world salad of denialists. I once saw her as a human rights defender.

The other present or no votes I care less about, because I never supported them, but this really hurt.

What an absolute disappointment and shame that the only democrat who did NOT support the Turkish bill aiming to stop the killing of innocent people is @IlhanMN who seems like on #DictatorErdogan ‘s payroll working for his interests, but not for the American people and democracy!

I am deeply disappointed and, frankly, disgusted by this statement issued by @IlhanMN today regarding H.Res. 296.

The whataboutism is from the textbook of denial that the Turkish government has engaged in for more than a century. Totally unacceptable.

Here’s a pic for ya…
