Over the last year and a half, far-left Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has repeatedly called for the defunding of the police.
Now that crime is skyrocketing in cities like Minneapolis, Omar is blaming the rise in crime on the police.
Someone needs to let her know she can’t have it both ways.
FOX News reports:
Ilhan Omar blames ‘dysfunctional’ police for Minneapolis violent crime spike
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., blamed police for the recent rise in crime in Minneapolis, accusing the city’s officers of not fulfilling their oath of office.
“What we must also recognize is that the reduction in policing currently in our city and the lawlessness that is happening is due to two things,” Omar said during a town hall event Saturday in Minneapolis.
One of them, she said, is that “the police have chosen to not fulfill their oath of office and to provide the public safety they are owed to the citizens they serve.”
The lawmaker’s comments come as violent crime has surged in Minnesota over the last year, rising 17% in total while setting records for murders.
Omar’s approach to crime includes backing a Nov. 2 ballot measure to replace the entire Minneapolis police department with a “Department of Public Safety.” The measure would remove the requirement that the city have a minimum number of officers based on the city’s population.

Does she have any idea how ridiculous she sounds?
@IlhanMN listen to yourself. You're an idiot. You're responsible for any rise in crime. Do you think the thugs were going to stop committing crime with you calling to abolish police?
Ppl voting for you should have their voter registration revoked. . https://t.co/645F50AjLq
