Ilhan Omar is back at it again.
On Wednesday, May 1, 2019, the Congresswoman claimed that US meddling has led to Venezuela’s collapse according to a Breitbart story.
In an interview with Democracy Now!, Ilhan Omar said “You know, I mean, a lot of the policies that we have put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela.”
She added, “This particular bullying and the use of sanctions to eventually intervene and make regime change really does not help the people of countries like Venezuela, and it certainly does not help and is not in the interest of the United States.”
In sum, Omar blamed US interference, instead of Venezuela’s well-documented experience with socialism for the country’s collapse.
Venezuela’s latest stage of instability came when Juan Guaidó assumed the role of Interim President in January.
Since then the country has been in a presidential crisis of sorts which only escalated after the latest uprising on April 30, 2019.
Omar’s stance on non-interventionism in Venezuela differs from Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz, who, on the other hand, sees America staying out of the way as a matter of self-determination for the Venezuelan people. Unlike Omar, Gaetz recognizes that socialism has clearly left the Venezuelan economy in shambles.
This is not the Minnesota Congresswoman’s first foray with controversy this week.
Earlier this week, BLP reported on Omar slamming white people and America at a rally where groups like Black Lives Matter were in attendance.

Gavin Newsom Plans on Exploiting Wuhan Virus Pandemic to “Usher in Progressive Era”
California Governor Gavin Newsom is taking full advantage of the Wuhan Virus crisis to advance his progressive agenda.
According to the California Globe, Newsom has emulated Trump’s strategy of providing daily updates on how the respective leaders are fighting the crisis. In one of the press briefings, a Bloomberg reporter asked Newsom if he was going to use the crisis to put California on a an even more progressive path.
“There is opportunity for reimagining a progressive era as it pertains to capitalism,” Newsom stated. “So yes, absolutely we see this as an opportunity to reshape the way we do business and how we govern.”
Newsom continued by saying that this “shouldn’t send shivers up the spines” of either party, but that it’s needed to “meet this moment.”
The full speech can be watched here.
California is already one of the bastions of American progressivism and has been a trend setter for public policy.
With a new crisis underway, Newsom will milk this situation for all its worth and double down on the policies that wrecked California.
These are times when the tyrants come out of the shadows and show their real faces.
