In a Capitol Hill panel discussion on “racial justice” she hosted on Thursday, Somali-born, anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar claimed that American power comes from racism and that “our history is built on the oppression of black bodies.”
“From slavery to Jim Crow to redlining to mass incarceration to voter suppression, racism is part of the foundation of American power,” Omar said. “In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist. We must be anti-racist,” Omar added, quoting black communist activist Angela Davis. “Our task as organizers… is to recognize that our history is built on the oppression of black bodies.”
Omar went on to call for Congress to revoke Section 215 of the Patriot Act, and for the FBI to revoke its “Black Identity Extremist” terrorism category and end the surveillance of black activists.
Like Angela Davis, the race-mongering radical Omar’s aim is not to make America great again, but to subvert and “fundamentally transform” it.
