It’s time to throw away the Democrats’ anti-police spin/lies. The latest in the series is Ilhan Omar’s op-ed. It contains one of the biggest whoppers I’ve ever seen, which is something considering the fact that I just read an op-ed written by Adam Schiff.

In the op-ed, Rep. Omar wrote “In the wake of George Floyd’s murder, people across the country and around the globe are standing in solidarity with the protesters in Minneapolis. The message and movement of ‘Black Lives Matter’ has at long last gained the acceptance they long deserved.” That’s almost pure BS. First, the people that’ve gotten out in the streets aren’t protesters. They’re anarchists, rioters and looters. That’s substantially different than the definition of a protester.

The definition of protester is “an expression or declaration of objection, disapproval, or dissent, often in opposition to something a person is powerless to prevent or avoid.” The definition of rioter is “a noisy, violent public disorder caused by a group or crowd of persons, as by a crowd protesting against another group, a government policy, etc., in the streets.” This isn’t a protest:

That’s what a riot looks like. Next, Black Lives Matter is getting discredited, thanks in large part to the fact that BLM’s co-founders said that they’re “trained Marxists.” America-hating Somalis might think Marxists are gaining acceptance with Democrats but that’s the only place BLM is gaining acceptance. Then there’s this:

For too long, people who live and work in Minneapolis, particularly black and other marginalized communities, have faced violence at the hands of police. Despite attempts at accountability and reform, the department continues to fail the city, as was laid bare with George Floyd’s murder and the department’s actions since his killing.

That’s because Minneapolis is ‘governed’ by activists, not policy-makers. Further, DFL City Councilmembers think first about how situations can be used for their political advantage. The Minneapolis City Council is entirely DFL. If the police aren’t trained properly, then that’s 100% on the DFL.

Ilhan Omar is part of the DFL. Ditto with Keith Ellison, the person who represented Minnesota’s Fifth District. Ditto with Phyllis Kahn, the woman who represented the legislative district Omar represented. Kahn represented the district for almost 50 years.

The legitimate argument is that Minneapolis should throw out the Democrats who’ve represented Minneapolis’s failed status quo for 40+ years. Why doesn’t the DFL get the blame? They’re the people representing the city at all levels of government, from the City Council, to the State Legislature to the U.S. Congress. The results are in and indisputable. Democrats have failed Minneapolis for half a century.
