Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) wants to see the Minneapolis Police Department completely defunded.
Even with rising crime, she has not backed off, pushing this narrative through the primary season.
As she is doing this, her city is becoming the next domestic war zone in the country.
Like her fellow Squad members, Omar usually has armed security protecting her wherever she goes.
She does not want the same for her constituents at a time when they need it the most.
Citywide crime in Minneapolis has spiked in nine of 14 possible categories.
Charles Fain Lehman, a Manhattan Institute fellow, stated, “Minneapolis is a case study in what happens when municipal leaders decide to demonize the police and criminal justice system for their political advantage.”
He added, “As in many other big cities, homicides and other violence spiked in the city following the murder of George Floyd and rise of the defund the police movement—a movement to which Minneapolis uniquely capitulated.”
Omar barely scraped by this time, facing off against a more moderate opponent.
She won by about two percentage points, whereas she won by more than 20 points in the 2020 election.
The people are growing tired of her, just not tired enough to remove her from office.
Sadly, since she made it past the primary, she will more than likely win re-election again unless every voter who voted against her in the primary supports the Republican candidate in the race.
And, as we all know, that is unlikely to happen.
