(Tea Party PAC) – Well, well, well.
It looks like the “Squad” is going to stay together, at least for another term.
It’s hard to tell if this is bad news for anyone who respects liberty, American values, the rule of law, and the humanity of the Jewish people, but it’s also bad news for the Democratic Party, if they have any plans to remain relatable to moderates any time soon.
The notorious Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has secured her primary election, meaning she is a likely shoe-in for a second term in Congress.
USA Today (glowingly) reports:
Several primary elections happened around the country Tuesday, but perhaps none gathered the attention as much as Rep. Ilhan Omar’s competitive Democratic primary in her bid for reelection in Minnesota, where she emerged victorious.
Omar, a former state representative, was elected during the 2018 midterms as part of the “Blue Wave” that hit the U.S. Capitol, and she gained a national profile as a leading progressive voice in the House of Representatives.
She was challenged by Antone Melton-Meaux, a Black lawyer and mediator, who raised millions of dollars, nearly matching Omar overall and outraising her in the most recent cycle.
Melton-Meaux trailed significantly with more than 90% of the vote counted, leading him to concede.
On Tuesday night, Omar tweeted: “In Minnesota, we know that organized people will always beat organized money. Tonight, our movement didn’t just win. We earned a mandate for change. Despite outside efforts to defeat us, we once again broke turnout records.
“It has been the honor of my life to represent you in Congress and I look forward to continuing to serve the people of the 5th District in the years to come,” she continued.
In Minnesota, we know that organized people will always beat organized money.
Tonight, our movement didn’t just win. We earned a mandate for change. Despite outside efforts to defeat us, we once again broke turnout records.
Despite the attacks, our support has only grown.

Omar, who was born in Somalia and lived in a Kenyan refugee camp until she came to the US with her family as a child, was the first-ever Muslim woman elected to the US Congress, along with fellow “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) make up the foursome.
Omar has brought seemingly nothing but controversy to Washington DC, having been accused of marrying her own brother to commit immigration fraud, being forced to pay fines for campaign finance violations, making a constant stream of anti-Semitic remarks, making it clear she wants to tear down the American system, and oh yea, having an affair with one of her political advisors, divorcing her husband and the father of her children, breaking up his marriage, and now filling his bank account with fees for “consulting” her campaign.
Yeah, she’s a peach. But she’s a black, Muslim, Democrat in 2020. Her party couldn’t care less about integrity if she checks the right intersectional boxes.
