Ilhan Omar: Minneapolis Police ‘Brutalize and Harm’ Community, ‘Shouldn’t Exist’

'The need to disband and dismantle---get rid of---the Minneapolis Police Department comes out of a place of understanding that they don't have credibility within our community...'

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., reiterated her call to eliminate the Minneapolis Police Department, saying that its “function has become to brutalize and cause harm to our community.”

Omar continued her efforts to delegitimize law enforcement while also complaining about sexism and racism in an interview with Teen Vogue, a magazine that preaches sexual liberation and radical leftist politics to young people, especially girls.

She did not obscure her meaning, as many in the “Defund the Police” movement have tried to do.

“The need to disband and dismantle—get rid of—the Minneapolis Police Department comes out of a place of understanding that they don’t have credibility within our community,” Omar said.

The Somali refugee and Islamic fundamenalist has been a consistent voice for overthrowing the existing American society and its institutions.

That includes the nuclear family, the Christian Church, the Constitution, capitalism—or, as Omar describes them, all “systems of oppression” that prevent far-left, pro-socialist Democrats from holding absolute, unchecked authority.

Omar claimed the Minneapolis PD was unable to arrest and prosecute half of the murderers in the Democrat-run city. Thus, she insisted, the only solution was to dismantle the department altogether.

“They continue to function with impunity,” she told the teen magazine.

“They are not doing the core function of solving half of the homicides in our city,” she continued. “So if you are not functioning in the ways in which you are supposed to function, protecting and serving, and your function has become to brutalize and cause harm to our community, then you shouldn’t exist.”

The Minneapolis Police Department has killed 10 people in the past 10 years.

But even that is a misleading because police officers acted in self-defense in almost every case, KARE 11 reported.

By contrast, there had been 49 murders this year in Minneapolis as of August, KSTP reported.

Omar also complained about the sexism, racism and Islamophobia that she faces in Congress.

“And they obviously do not want to celebrate your fight and your courage and your desire to speak up for those who live on the margins of society,” Omar said.

“So, the need to want to validate my experience as a worker, as a mother, as someone who has a concrete and intimate understanding of the challenges of our immigration system, as someone who’s dealt with the trifecta of hate—in being an immigrant, Black [sic], and Muslim—none of those things are welcomed,” she said.
