Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar Call for ‘Dismantling the Entire System’

Far-left congresswomen Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) have said in recent days that they feel the entirety of the American justice system and capitalist economy need to be “dismantled” in order to combat so-called “racist oppression,” as reported by Breitbart.

Tlaib responded to Omar’s statements at a press conference on Tuesday, where the radical Islamic congresswoman, an immigrant from Somalia, falsely claimed that “the mortality rate for black Minnesotans to COVID is twice as high as it is with other races,” adding that “we must recognize that these systems of oppression are linked.”

Omar continued by claiming that “as long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit…we will perpetuate this inequity.” She concluded that “we must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”

Tlaib, who along with Omar is one of the first Muslim members of Congress in history, and also a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, repeated Omar’s rhetoric on Twitter, saying “my sister Ilhan Omar said it best: We must begin dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”

Omar, widely considered one of the most far-left politicians in the entire country, has also repeatedly called for the complete defunding and disbanding of the Minneapolis Police Department, falsely calling it “rotten to the root.” She has previously stoked the very same kind of racial rhetoric currently being used by the radical Black Lives Matter movement; at a BLM rally in front of the U.S. Capitol in 2019, Omar declared that America “is not going to be the country of white people.”
