House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) recently announced his endorsement of Peter Meijer to be the Republican nominee for Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District.
Meijer has a history of supporting left-wing causes, but he comes from the family that founded the superstore chain with hundreds of locations throughout the Midwest. This was likely the determining factor for McCarthy to issue his endorsement.
“Peter Meijer’s life has been defined by his service to America and his community. Whether serving in the United States Army in Iraq, as a conflict analyst in Afghanistan, leading veteran disaster response teams, or as an advocate for his fellow veterans, Peter Meijer has always stepped up to serve. Peter brings a dynamic skill set to the table which will help us not only fight for the conservative principles we share, but turn them into law. He will make a great Representative for West Michigan, and I am proud to support his campaign,” McCarthy said in a statement.
Meijer came under fire last year after he initially allowed a performance of “drag syndrome” to come to Grand Rapids, Mich. Drag syndrome is a grotesque example of LGBT exploitation in which mentally-handicapped individuals are dolled up in drag, sexualized in a perverse stage show, and gawked at by sodomites.
After receiving a great deal of anger from Republicans throughout West Michigan, Meijer announced that he would not host drag syndrome in his venue. It was already too late though, as they moved to a bigger venue in a different part of town. If Meijer had the courage to put his foot down from the start, he may have been able to stop this showing of extreme degeneracy from taking place.
In addition to facilitating drag syndrome in Michigan, Meijer has also donated to Democrats throughout the state as well. He once donated $1,500 to Democrat state house member Joe Tate. Meijer was also a “Never Trumper” who donated to an organization called “Common Defense,” which was formed to stop the “real threat” in Trump from defeating Clinton in 2016.
“Common Defense was born out of the 2016 U.S. presidential election when military veterans recognized Donald Trump as a real threat,” the Meijer-backed organization wrote on their official website. “We knew that he could win and we mobilized to stop him. Since then, we’ve grown into a powerful movement with more than 150,000 supporters and tens of thousands of veterans and military families across all 50 states.”
Meijer has also served on the board of With Honor, a globalist front group which received millions of dollars from Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, close Jeff Epstein associate Leslie Wexner, and gun-grabbing leftist Mike Bloomberg. With Honor also issued contributions to the the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Nancy Pelosi for Congress, and pro-abortion front Emily’s List. Meijer was the public mouthpiece of this subversive organization that was created in part to push the Republican Party leftward.
“Oftentimes, the way some of the political financing goes, bipartisanship and compromising are seen as negatives and are punished,” Meijer told Michigan NPR about his work with the astroturfed corporate PAC bankrolled by liberals.
“The main thing we’re trying to address is the increasing political polarization in the country. … We’re hoping to bring more veterans into Congress with a can-do attitude and a willingness to reach across the aisle to help our country work again,” he added.
Once again, House leadership is intent upon pushing another RINO into the legislature. The swamp will have some reinforcements if Meijer can use his massive inheritance to buy the Congressional seat in Michigan’s third district.
Ilhan Omar’s Grandfather Was a Government Official in One of Africa’s Worst Dictatorships
Talk about ‘systematic oppression.’
As Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar accuses American civilization of being a “system of oppression,” it appears that the progressive Democrat has provided little to no public information on her own grandfather’s activities and public duties as a government official in one of Africa’s worst dictatorships.
Omar has described her grandfather, Abukar Omar, as the Director of the National Marine Transport in Somalia in the 1980’s and possibly earlier, serving in the government of then-President Siad Barre. Barre, who took power in 1969, originally governed the country as a Marxist-Leninist before switching his Cold War allegiances to the United States in the late 70’s.
Barre’s government is known as a prolific human rights abuser, persecuting the nation’s Isaaq tribe in a series of government sponsored killings that scholars have referred to as a “forgotten genocide.” Estimates of the civilian casualties of the Isaaq genocide range from 50,000 to 200,000 people.
Omar, who was a child at the time, has also described her family leaving Somalia in 1991, the very year that President Barre was overthrown from power in a revolution that continues to have a destabilizing effect on the East African nation to this day.
It’s of some public interest that a more thorough explanation of Akubar Omar’s duties as an official serving under Siad Barre be provided, especially considering the former Barre official was granted refugee status in the United States sometime after Barre was overthrown in Somalia’s 1991 Civil War.
Omar has described her family as understanding that they were “no longer welcome” in the country as a result of the civil war, a development that may very well have come as a result of her grandfather’s work as a nominally high-ranking government official under the Barre regime. Rep. Omar recounted an incident in which what seems to have been a family compound was placed under siege by rebels who vandalized the property in a 2016 profile with the Minneapolis City Pages.
Omar biographies also suggest that some of her aunts and uncles also worked as civil servants under Barre’s government.
An inquiry into Abukar Omar’s official duties as the Director of the National Marine Transport under Barre’s regime was sent to Omar’s press office, and the Congresswoman has yet to respond as of Wednesday night.
Ilhan Omar was also one of the few Democratic members of Congress to decline to formally vote to recognize the Armenian Genocide conducted by the Ottoman Empire after World War I, claiming the United States should be focusing on the legacy of slavery and persecution of Native Americans instead.
Certainly, one cannot be held to account for actions that their extended relatives engage in when they’re a child; but it’s quite rich that Omar has declined to account for her own grandfather’s seeming participation in a very real and historically documented “system of oppression” in any publicly known remarks on the family connection, while castigating American civilization for its supposed injustices.
