Ilhan Omar Promises Dangerous Boycott That Hurts Poor People Most

( )- Far-left Representative Ilhan Omar said on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday that Democrats and radical left-wing activists must continue to push big business and corporations – like Major League Baseball – to boycott the state of Georgia until its legislators backtrack on new legislation designed to stop voter fraud.

Omar was asked by far-left news anchor Jake Tapper about her position on boycotting Georgia, referencing how Major League Baseball pulled its all-star game from the state in protest against protecting election integrity.

“Stacey Abrams says she understands why people would want to boycott the protest,” he said. “But she thinks such actions hurt the working people, who would be working at the Major League Baseball game, for example, who are disproportionately minorities.”

He asked whether Omar agreed with the decision, and obviously she did.

“We know that boycotts have allowed for just this to be delivered in many spaces. The Civil Rights movement was rooted in boycotts. We know that you know Apartheid did in South Africa because of boycotts,” she said, wrongly conflating apartheid with Republican efforts to stop voter fraud.

“So our hope is that you know, this boycott would result in changes in the law because we understand that when you restrict people’s ability to vote, you create a democracy that isn’t fully functioning for all of us,” she wrongly claimed.

“If we continue to be a beacon of hope for all democracies around the world, we must stand our ground,” she added, confirming her opposition to simple measures designed to ensure every vote is legally cast by an American citizen.

The new legislation in Georgia has been described as the “new Jim Crow” by House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, but in reality, the legislation makes zero reference to race. It also doesn’t apply to anybody according to their race.

Georgia will simply require that people voting by mail provide evidence of their identity when casting their vote, something that can be done with several forms of ID – all of which are available to any voting American citizen regardless of their race.

The legislation comes in response to legal challenges to 2020’s presidential and congressional race, whereby thousands of votes are understood to have been cast by voters with fake addresses.

Why is Ilhan Omar opposed to establishing better voter integrity laws?
