Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Mogadishu), the moral lodestar of today’s Democrat party, is unhappy with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) for rejecting Biden’s handlers’ breathtakingly expensive and wasteful socialism and climate change fantasy bill. Given the Democrat leadership’s abject fear of appearing to be “Islamophobic” by crossing Omar, this could be the most serious challenge yet to Manchin’s role as a sane man in the party of liars, looters, and lunatics.
Velshi further quoted Manchin saying: “I’ve tried everything humanly possible, I can’t get there. … On this legislation, I’ve tried everything I know how to do.”
Hearing this, Omar first laughed derisively, and then said, “Uh, I mean, we all knew that, uh, Senator Manchin couldn’t be trusted. Um, you know, the, the excuses that he just made, um, I think, are complete bulls**t. Um, it is really disheartening, uh, to hear him say that he has been trying to get there for the people of West Virginia, um, uh, because that’s a complete lie. The people of West Virginia would greatly benefit, um, from their families having access to, you know, long-term elderly care, uh, and care for, um, folks with disabilities. They would, uh, benefit, from the, uh, expansion of the child tax credits. They will benefit from having access to, um, pre-K. Uh, there are just so many things that, you know, the people of West Virginia desperately need. Uh, and we know that he is not, um, working on, uh, behalf of their interests. And I really am just completely disappointed and disgusted by his reasoning.”
Former Trump aide Stephen Miller shot back at the new expert on West Virginia: “Quick Q: can you clarify how the people of West Virginia, or any other American state, would benefit from giving Big Tech Titans uncapped foreign workers from overseas (instead of hiring workers from U.S.)? Because that Zuckerberg-backed provision was in every draft of the bill …”
What’s more, Omar’s claim about West Virginia supporting Build Back Better by a decisive margin is false. As PJ Media’s Stacey Lennox has noted, “According to a Rasmussen Reports/Numbers USA poll, only 49% of Democrat voters in West Virginia say they support BBB legislation.” Even that seems high: in 2020, the Mountain State gave Trump 68.6% of the vote; Old Joe Biden got only 29.7%. This makes it clear that West Virginians for the most part reject socialism and understand that when a politician comes around promising free stuff, hardworking people are the ones who have to pay for it all. How likely is it that just over a year later, they’re turning out in droves for socialism and the destruction of the American economy?
