Far-left ‘Squad’ Representative Ilhan Omar had a town hall meeting interrupted by protesters upset with her for supporting tens of billions of taxpayer dollars to Ukraine and pushing the nation to the brink of nuclear war with Russia.
The incident is equivalent to an earlier episode when far-left socialist AOC had her town hall crashed by progressives upset that she bent the knee and supported billions to Ukraine.
“You are supposed to be a progressive Democrat,” a man in the video can be heard yelling toward Omar. “Anti-war.”
“$80 billion to Ukraine is not anti-war,” he added.

She dismissed the protests as fomenters of Russian disinformation, as has grow to be the norm for Democrats who abruptly have an insatiable thirst for war.
I am sorry, you all are not “anti war protesters”, you are risky propagandists who are actually generating a mockery of the anti war movement.

Omar has previously expressed skepticism about exactly where the help is going and worried about the “size and scope” of the assistance getting sent to Ukraine.
“The consequences of flooding Ukraine with a billion dollars in [American] weapons, likely not limited to just military-specific equipment but also including small arms + ammo, are unpredictable & likely disastrous,” she tweeted.
“Specially (sic) when they are given to paramilitary groups without accountability.”
That’s nevertheless precisely the case, which tends to make Omar’s 180 all the additional pathetic.
I assistance providing Ukraine the sources it wants to defend its people today, I just have reputable issues about the size and scope.
Btw, criticizing and questioning is my job as a leader and a member of Congress. It’s the hardest component of the job, trust me it is straightforward to just stick to. https://t.co/XIioIlU5D8
