It’s surprising, but it is happening. Some Minnesota Democrats are reportedly considering a different candidate to replace Ilhan Omar after her infamous anti-Semitic comments. According to The Hill, the Democrats have been holding meetings and discussing who could be a suitable replacement when the time comes. Who would have thought that Democrats could use common sense when it comes to one of their own?
Democratic State Senator, Ron Latz, commented on the meetings. He said:
“There’s definitely some buzz going around about it, but it’s more a buzz of is anyone talking about finding someone to run against her than it is anyone saying they’re going to run against her or contemplate it. There’s definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her.”
In other words, nobody has come out to challenge her for her congressional seat. But Democrats in Minnesota are hoping to find someone who would be up for the job. That sounds like good news to me.
Ilhan Omar’s comments have shown that she hates the idea of Israel and American Jews. Minnesota has a sizable Jewish community, and they too have expressed outrage due to her insulting comments. Steve Hunegs, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, said:
“Our community is exasperated by Rep. Omar’s unfulfilled promises to listen and learn from Jewish constituents while seemingly simultaneously finding another opportunity to make an anti-Semitic remark and insult our community.”
If the Democrats can replace someone as polarizing and anti-Semitic as Ilhan Omar, this will show that there is still some sanity left in the party…
Who am I kidding? There are no sane Democrats.
