Sen. Blackburn Says Rep. Ilhan Omar Should Resign After Calling for Dismantling of U.S. Economic, Political Systems


U.S. Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) should resign after the representative called for the “dismantling” of the U.S. “economy and political systems.”

Omar made the remark during a speech Tuesday to the Minnesota People of Color and Indigenous Caucus, The Daily Wire reported.

“As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality. We cannot stop at criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”

The GOP War Room posted video of Omar’s speech here.

In response, Blackburn tweeted, “Ilhan Omar took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution, not shred it. Omar and her Marxist comrades are a threat to our Democracy. Omar should resign.”

Last month, Omar demanded dismantling the police force in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd, CBN News reported.

“You can’t really reform a department that is rotten to the root,” she said at the time. “What you can do is rebuild, and so this is our opportunity.”

Omar was unable to say what would happen if the police department was dismantled, The Tennessee Star reported.

“What takes its place?” CNN host Jake Tapper asked the congresswoman. “Who investigates crimes? Who arrests criminals? What happens?”

“Yeah, so, Minneapolis unanimously just voted on a resolution that will engage the community on a one-year process of what happens as we go through the process of dismantling the department and starting anew,” Omar replied.

On Tuesday, Blackburn said she signed on as a co-sponsor of the Ending Taxpayer Funding of Anarchy Act to restrict federal funding of jurisdictions that abdicate their constitutional duty to their citizens to uphold the rule of law and provide police, fire or emergency medical services.

“Anarchist jurisdictions – like sanctuary cities – encourage lawlessness and mob rule at the expense of law-abiding citizens,” Blackburn said. “Cities that do not act to quell the anarchy we are seeing in places like Seattle’s CHAZ should not receive the same federal funding as cooperative cities that abide by the rule of law.”

    This anti-American should be evicted from this country along with her supporters including Obama who sneaked many so-called refugees into this country by sending them to small airports in the middle of the night….They are here illegally and Obama is responsible….
    Then, she said that they will fight oppression wherever they find it…Well how about fighting it within the black and muslim communities where working hard is a no no and getting an education is too oppressing…the list goes on……I. Omar is not wanted here…she has to go!
    Should we invite Putin or the Communist Regime of China to come here and take over? Are we nuts to have our enemy under foot?

    She is the most ungrateful woman ever. If Barry Obama hadn’t rescued her and 70,000 other of her countrymen and planted them in Minneapolis her life would be a whole lot different. Most likely. She would be living in a dirt floor cardboard shack with 5 starving kids.

  3. Todd Peterson

    She wants it just like somalia!

      It already is…

    So why is she not being removed and charged with treason??? Better take action Minnesota or you will regret it!!

  5. Charles McCraw

    That’s exactly right, the words she spoke were words of Treason…she should resign or be removed from office! Treason is in her actions, and her speech! …by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words shalt thou be condemned!

    1. Riley Barnett

      The USA should have acted immediately-with laws we have unenforced by our weak conservatives and lawless liberals!

  6. 83ragtop50

    Isn’t she the one who “married” her brother to get legal status? Why is she not being indicted and deported?

  7. Beatrice Shaw

    Since when can’t a duly elected person (especially a minority in today’s time) not have free speech? Folks, the radical RIGHT is not wanted

    1. Steve Allen

      The radical Right? That statement is the epitome of Leftist ideology. Accuse the other side of the behaviors you yourselves are guilty of. Who’s rioting, looting, burning, and KILLING, not the right. It’s the Marxist, Socialist, Leftists that you obviously throw your hat in with. I guess if you are a minority today this kind of behavior is acceptable. For the proof of that statement all you have to do is look at all the violence that has taken place in America over the last few weeks and the total lack of arrests or even attempts to stop the violence.

      If she doesn’t like our form of government she can get the hell out of our country and go back to the s**t h**e country she left. She is a disgrace to America and an nu-convicted criminal.

      1. Cindy Gawelczyk

        Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! The Left only screams freedom of speech when it benefits them. If something offends the Liberals then
        ‘to hell’ with freedom of speech. They will want the ‘offensive’ word or words banned or the person saying it fined or arrested. Well maybe not arrested since they want the police defunded.🤦🏻‍♀️

    Well, this is what happens when “we” try to be humanitarians and bring a boat-load of refugees from 3rd world countries and allow them to concentrate in “blue” cities. The ingrates reward us by electing radical, ideologically-driven, representatives who’s beliefs are antithetical to ours, and want to exterminate our way of life! And don’t think that it only happens “somewhere else”! Nashville is VERY close to having the exact same situation!

    But then again, even many of our thought-to-be Conservative Tennessee leaders are forcing us to resembling Ilhan. Once you’re OK with wearing face covers, niqabs aren’t much of a stretch, and then full burkas. Wake up America!

      Couldn’t have said it better myself !!!!!

    Marsha still doesn’t understand that we don’t live in a democracy, but a republic. At least she’s consistent; she didn’t have any sense when she was in state politics, either.

    1. Charles McCraw

      You need to go back to school, she took an OATH of Office and Swore to uphold The Constitution Of The United States Of America…not undermine the Foundation!

  10. MAGA

    Yea, her ilk did a bang up job in Somalia.

  11. Rick

    She should be tried for treason . Democrat trash!

  12. Cannoneer2

    She is just doing what her constituents sent her there to do.

    1. Charles McCraw

      Amen to that!
