Published

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.
