Rep. Ilhan Omar Wants To Dismantle Systems Of Oppression. What’s The Problem With That?
 

 

“We can’t stop at criminal justice reform or policing reform,” Omar said on Tuesday. “We are not merely fighting to tear down the systems of oppression in the criminal justice system. We are fighting to tear down systems of oppression that exist in housing, in education, in health care, in employment, [and] in the air we breathe.”

Omar, along with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), has been referred to derisively as a member of “the Squad” by President Trump and his allies. Her political positions often draw fierce criticism from right-wing politicians and media outlets, and her comments on Tuesday will likely only add more fuel to those critiques.

“As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality,” Omar said at the press conference. “So we cannot stop at [the] criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”

 

Omar’s comments come at time when the nation is gripped with protests over police violence, as well as the broader debate about the role racial inequality plays in American society. In a matter of months, the country has grappled with evidence of systemic racism in politics, business, sports and entertainment, sometimes with deeply polarizing results. As a result, U.S. attitudes related to police reform are dramatically shifting, with a vast majority of Americans agreeing that at least some police reform is necessary. Nonetheless, Omar’s comments will no doubt challenge Americans’ opinions of just how far they are willing to go to address systemic racism.

Here is the solution.

Read the new book by the mental health expert about Trump and his family. Mary proves correct what all the other mental health experts have told us about Trump for the last year. Mary tells us Trump is dangerous, and should not be President.

The deflections are arriving late today as it took leadership time to try and think of something that might fly. This one from Forbes is dead in the water.

Solutions will come as soon as Republicans are GONE from all the places they can block the solutions. Should be around 22 Jan 2021.

 

Start with Tax Reform, then a new Fairness Doctrine for Broadcasting, including the internet, and then  use the additional tax revenue for a new Revenue Sharing program so we will no longer have cops responsible for collecting fines to pay their own salaries and college can be paid for with a decent summer job. Then with the Fairness Doctrine, no more Tucker Carlsons who admit nobody thinks they're telling the truth, and stay on the air.
