Ilhan Omar votes “present” on a resolution recognizing Turkey’s genocide of Armenians.
And in her statement about that decision, she appears to have learned her rhetorical skills from leaving comments in the Star-Tribune comment section:
Put another way – “the resolution’s silence about other genocides – mostly the ones involving the US, the country that welcomed me to it – speaks volumes“.
And if accounting for genocide is “Paramount”, then what’s “academic consensus” got to do with it?
And we did “acknowledge” the slave trade, Rep. Omar: with the bloodiest war in our country’s history.
Note to Tom Emmer: Write a resolution condemning the Holocaust, the Rwandan genocide. See what she does.
