Congresswoman Ilhan Omar May Be Shaping Up to Be One of the Most Courageous New Faces of Her Party

By We Are Change | We Are Change

Editor’s Comment: It is not often that a politician will speak truth to their own party. It is even more rare to hear a politician call out the bad policies of a former president of his or her same party. It is even more rare that a politician will challenge war policies, in the face of the reality that there is so much money available, from the military-industrial complex, to politicians who will do whatever they ask. It could reasonably be said that most politicians fall into this latter category.


Ilhan Omar is one politician who has pierced the illusions of the polished veneer of former President Obama. Certainly, we can celebrate the presidency of the first person of color, and can even grant that he brought forward certain good policies. However, it is important to acknowledge that he was in numerous ways a heartless hawk on foreign policy issues. And, for a constitutional law professor, he certainly showed a lack of understanding of, and commitment to, the U.S. Constitution at times.

As with Trump, he was willing to use executive orders to circumvent the hard work of gaining consensus with which to pass laws. He also, shockingly, had no problem with murdering U.S. citizens who allegedly were involved in terrorism, and he seemed to have no problem with the killing of many innocents, in collateral damage, from drone strikes. Nor did he fight against indeterminate incarceration under the NDAA bill, then law. And, he did not stop and even seems to have ordered the murder of a head of state – the former head of Lybia.

In their diatribes against former President Obama, Republicans seize upon many of his policies, but do not often speak ill of Obama’s policies and actions mentioned above. One could reasonably suggest that this is because many Republicans eagerly stand at the spigot of military spending as much as many Democrats do.

The video below speaks about this congressperson’s recent comments. We shall see how she does as she continues in her first term. Her positions thus far take courage, and she does not seem to shrink from controversy. Even if you cannot agree with all of her policies, Congresswoman Omar’s courage seems an admirable trait – one not often seen in Washington, D.C. Please check out the video below and let us know what you think of it, in our comments section.

    Might be a good idea to check the spelling of the name of another country. It is Libya, not Lybia.
