House recognises Armenian ’genocide’; Ihlan Omar votes ’present’

The House voted overwhelmingly to recognize the century-old mass killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks as genocide. The move is a rebuke to Turkey in the wake of its invasion of northern Syria. Historians estimate that up to 1.5 million Armenians were killed around World War I. Rep. Ilhan Omar refused to back the resolution saying the genocide ’should not be used as cudgel in a political fight’.

The dumbass that defended AOC's "concentration camps" comment and described 9/11 as "some people did something" won't condemn a genocide, why am I not surprised?!

More proof that she doesn't care about anything other than to push forward her agenda. She's not pro-American and doesn't care about genocide of people she doesn't like. How would she react if Muslim countries underwent genocide? Bet she'd change her tune.

"Omar further justified her decision by claiming that the measure should have included a condemnation of the "transatlantic slave trade" and "Native American Genocide." Oh really, Ohmar? What about the Muslim Slave trade that occurred for over 14 centuries on my African people, chopped the men's peckers off from pelvis to taint, and made a rape harem out of our women? You gonna condemn that?

'Present'. That was the tactic Obama used in IL to mask his real beliefs as he prepared to run for POTUS. Sorry. Omar, but you are way, way too late for that to work for you! 🤡 (do''t argue with me until you look it up) 🤡

I want to throw up for saying this, but I agree with her reason. Of course it was genocide and she should have voted yes anyway, but the only reason they're doing this now is for political purposes. The House Dems don't have an authentic bone in their bodies. They care about nothing but winning.

I sorta agree with Omar... recognizing the genocide, while good, is only being so for political reasons. The house should have been done years ago.

I agree we should not use past events as cudgels in political fights. So no more using: - American Slavery - European Colonialism - British Imperialism - Suffragettes - Segregation - Male historical domination of STEM and culture etc, etc, etc.

Translation: It's only a genocide when Muslims aren't responsible.
