Americans were wondering when Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar would finally commit the one unforgiveable act of wrongdoing that would finally end her career.
That day may finally have arrived.
And that’s because Ilhan Omar insulted the U.S. military. This veteran’s response stunned her into silence.
One of the pet projects of the socialist left is to complete student loan debt forgiveness.
Americans currently hold nearly one trillion dollars in student loan debt.
Students got sucked into the higher education racket where left-wing colleges sat on massive endowments, jacked up tuition and paid administrators who run useless programs such as “gender” and “diversity” studies obscene salaries because colleges understood that the federal government would underwrite the costs by loaning students money to cover tuition.
Both conservatives and liberals would like a solution to this problem.
But while conservatives would like to see colleges absorb the blow by using their endowments to cover student loans, Omar and other anti-American socialists want to stick taxpayers with the trillion dollar tab.
Omar recently tweeted out an article from AlterNet calling for the abolition of all student loan debt and comparing students that took out tens of thousands of dollars in loans to fund a worthless degree in “diversity” studies to Americans that fought in war and were paid back by the G.I. bill covering their college costs.
“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,” Omar quoted the article as saying.
Veteran Chris Manning who served six years in the Army National Guard and served one tour in Afghanistan – and who also ran for Congress in New Mexico during the 2018 midterms – slammed Omar for her offensive and anti-military comparison.
“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,” Manning tweeted.
Democrats have a long history of smearing military members.
In the 1970s, John Kerry disgracefully smeared the men he served with in Vietnam by claiming they were baby killers and war criminals.
Ilhan Omar comparing military heroes to entitled millennials that want someone else to pay for their student loan debt is just the latest example of liberals disrespecting the American military.
This issue could take on greater importance in the 2020 election.
Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders – whom Omar endorsed – believes in free college and is currently the frontrunner for the Democrat Party nomination.
This idea is wildly unpopular with Americans outside of college students.
Should Sanders win the nomination, Trump will batter Sanders with attack ads on his socialist scheme to raise taxes to pay for “free” college.
