U.S.A. – “Ilhan Omar will be sworn into the U.S. House of Representatives at a time when liberal-leaning newcomers like her are pushing for more influence in shaping the party’s agenda,” the Star Tribune reports. The Congressional Progressive Caucus, “the largest voting bloc among House Democrats,” is turning up the pressure to wield more power and advance its agenda via committee assignments.
That should surprise no one. For all its phony egalitarian posturing, the overtly socialist wing of the Democrat party rejects the ultimate political power-sharing that can only be possible with an armed citizenry. As such, they embrace gun bans and due process-denying prior restraints. And that’s just what they admit to.
They have close ties to the Democratic Socialists of America, the domestic arm of Socialist International, which doesn’t reveal all of its cards, either. Case in point, they’d just as soon you not see their songs of solidarity (now only available via the Internet Archive) that include such inclusive lyrics as:
And when the revolution comes,
We'll kill you all with knives and guns
So it’s also no surprise that “gun control legislation” is a priority for Omar. The Founders considered a citizen militia to be the one thing “necessary to the security of a free State.” She wants to render those citizens disarmed and thus incapable.
