She just a propagandist for her Marxist cause.
Ilhan Omar admitted she wasn’t entirely truthful when she told high school students a story that was meant to exhibit the economic disparities black people in America face.
The representative from Minnesota told hundreds of students at Richfield High School last week in her home state that she witnessed an elderly black woman get detained for a weekend for stealing $2 bread for her ‘starving 5-year-old granddaughter.’
Omar told the 400 teenagers that the incident transpired five years ago when she was serving as a city councilwoman in Minneapolis.
‘I couldn’t control my emotions,’ Omar told students in describing that she screamed ‘bulls**t’ in court when the woman was fined $80 for the crime. ‘I couldn’t understand how a roomful of educated adults could do something so unjust.’
Omar admitted, however, that the story was embellished when it was pointed out that it shared a lot of similarities with a plot line in ‘Les Miserables.’
She told The Washington Post, she may have ‘flubbed’ some of the fact.
‘She might have had a prior [arrest],’ Omar said of the ‘sweet, old’ African American woman. ‘I’m not sure.’
‘The details might not have all matched, but that’s what I remember,’ the first hibjab-wearing U.S. congresswoman said.
City officials in Minneapolis said police aren’t permitted to arrest shoplifters unless there was indications of violence or additional crimes. They added that those a=caught shoplifting are usually sentenced to attend a three-hour class.
Just like AOC… it’s not about truth or honesty. It’s about how she feels and the message she is trying to convey.
