Ilhan Omar refuses to back vote recognising Armenian genocide: Congresswoman says 'a true acknowledgement of historical crimes against humanity' must include 'earlier mass slaughters like the transatlantic slave trade'
Reminds me of a certain person...

If she's so concerned with everything else, why not bring it up for vote separately, instead of piggybacking? Nothing about the East African slave trade...

Ilhan Omar declined to vote in favour of a resolution recognising the mass killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks as a genocide, saying any "true acknowledgement" of such crimes must include other historical "mass slaughters".

The Minnesota Democrat was one of just three House members to vote “present” on the resolution that passed in an overwhelming 405-11 vote.

The congresswoman said in a statement shortly after the vote she believes in “accountability for human rights violations” but “accountability and recognition of genocide should not be used as cudgel in a political fight.

“It should be done based on academic consensus outside the push and pull of geopolitics”, she said.

For someone who doesn't want accountability to be used in a political fight, she's pro BDS Israel...

She's also BDS Saudi Arabia and I agree with her objection to the House penalizing people for exercising the 1st Amendment in boycotting anything.

I think her stance on that is dumb, though its a common political ploy.

I agree with her that anti-boycott laws are a travesty against the 1st amendment and are unlikely to be constitutional if challenged.

That’s typical Mac logic.

JJ must be so proud of the impact he has made in Frothers.
I bet he hasn’t posted here for over a year, and yet everything that triggers a Snowflake into clutching his pearls gets attributed to him.

Anyone who thinks drag queens are dramatic has never seen a white, het, male American defending Trump.
