Ilhan Omar is yet another radical Democrat with no understanding of how this country works.
Omar spouts off racist, socialist and anti-American ideas that have turned her into one of the most controversial members of Congress.
And Ilhan Omar just disrespected every American soldier. Here’s how she slapped them in the face.
Ilhan Omar is a radical member of the Democratic “squad,” a group of freshmen representatives who have no place in politics.
Omar’s latest proposal proves just that.
In a recent statement, she disrespected every American soldier with a ludicrous proposal.
American soldiers train and fight hard for this country, and are ready to lay down their lives if it comes to that.
But Omar just proposed taking one of their rights and giving it to every American citizen, regardless of whether they have contributed to this nation or not.
“Imagine what it would do for our country and those who live here if we were to take the ethos behind the original G.I. Bill and apply it to everybody—canceling all student debt and making public colleges, universities, and vocational schools tuition-free.” 💪🏽 https://t.co/P6LNRv6h9w

This statement was met with severe backlash, both from political opponents and soldiers who have fought for and served this great nation.
Everybody is already entitled to the GI Bill. All they have to do to get it is serve our great nation. If they don’t want to do that, then they don’t deserve it.

I'm a recipient of the GI Bill. The GI Bill was earned by agreeing to serve my country for six years and to put my life at risk as an infantryman in Afghanistan. It wasn't something just given to me with nothing expected in return. Don't cheapen our sacrifice w/ this comparison. pic.twitter.com/4CNspm8gXt

Omar’s original statement came as a response to one veteran’s testimony, telling how he used the G.I. Bill to earn a degree, and how the reward was worth the sacrifices he made to serve this country.
But Omar took that testimony and twisted it to fit her own political agenda, as the left always does.
Many others lashed out at Omar over Twitter, stating that if citizens wanted the benefits of the G.I. Bill, they need only enroll in the military to receive those benefits.
The G.I. Bill is not a handout, as the left wants to look at it, it is compensation for those who put their lives at risk every day to defend the freedom and liberty of this great nation against tyrants and threats.
Omar, who also received some support for the expansion, has previously pushed for the idea in legislation.
Along with Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., Omar introduced a bill that would “eliminate tuition and fees at all public four-year colleges and universities,” in addition to trade schools, community colleges and apprenticeship programs.
Omar, like the rest of the Squad, continues to fill Washington with ridiculous schemes, and radical ideals.
