    Rep. Ilhan Omar Makes Radical Call For Defunding Critical Portion Of U.S. Government

    Theres electing new Blood and thats a good thing, then theres democrats electing total idiots that just talk out of their ass.


    On Friday, anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) appeared to call for a complete defunding of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which would eliminate numerous government agencies that protect the United States.

    When Democrats stood our ground last month, we proved that Individual 1 does not have the public support to ram his hateful wall through Congress," Omar tweeted. "Let’s stand firm: #Not1Dollar for DHS."

    DHS has a budget of over $45 billion per year, which it uses to fund multiple operational and support components that the department oversees.
    Completely defunding DHS would end the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), United States Coast Guard (USCG), United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), United States Secret Service (USSS), Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Management Directorate, Science and Technology Directorate, Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office, Office of Intelligence and Analysis, and the Office of Operations Coordination.

    Some of those agencies could just move back to where they were before DHS come into being, like the Treasury Department for example for the Coast Guard. However, that would mean a lot of haggling.

    It would appear however this insane woman doesn't know $#@! from shinola about how the government works.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    1. She’s not anti-semitic.

    2. Pretty sure we were able to handle homeland security prior to 2002.

    There's no doubt that she's anti-Semitic.

    I could get on board with her idea if she was calling for consolidation of agencies and eliminating redundancy, but she's not. She's an extremist.

    She has no understanding of the principles the nation was founded upon, nor would she respect those principles if she knew what they are.

    I would ask them what she has done that was anti-Semitic, but I know that will just be a fruitless endeavor. If asking about money being a motivator to lobby for Israel, does that mean talking about Russia would be anti-white?

    Even Pelosi thinks she's anti-semitic.

    https://www.politico.com/story/2019/...mitism-1163728
    Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her top lieutenants on Monday sharply condemned Rep. Ilhan Omar for using anti-Semitic remarks and called on her to immediately apologize in an extraordinary rebuke of a colleague.

    “Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive,” said Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn and other party leaders in a statement. “We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments.“

    Thats your opinion others believe she is, before 2002 we didnt need homeland security now we most certainly do.
