Rep. Ilhan Omar on Tuesday said war with Iran would also be “class war,” echoing presidential contender Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), both of whom also framed war as “class conflict.”
“War is also class war #nowarwithiran,” Omar wrote on Instagram, adding, “It is not the wealthy who suffer most in war. It is the working class soldier who volunteers for his country.” Over the weekend, Sanders on Instagram posted AOC’s tweet in which she said, “War is a class conflict, too. The rich and powerful who open war escape the consequences of their decisions. It’s not their children sent into the jaws of violence. It is often the vulnerable, the poor, & working people -who had little to no say in conflict – who pay the price.”
“I know that it is rarely the children of the billionaire class who face the agony of reckless foreign policy,” Sanders reiterated below AOC’s tweet.
The left doesn’t seem to grasp that Iranian aggression will not be deterred by appeasement. Only American strength will prevent war.
