The same DC lawmaker who tried to grant clemency to members of ISIS and wanted to the family members of terrorists to get paid by insurance companies has now taken another extreme stance, this time on capitol punishment for gay people in Muslim countries.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who wants to defund the entire Department of Homeland Security, was recently contacted by reporters from the Daily Wire to comment on two cunique stories after expressing outrage over the crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border this week.
The first story comes from Brunei, where Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah has said that new Sharia laws that are going into effect are a form of "special guidance" from God, according to Sky News.
The nation is going to introduce death by stoning as a punishment for gay sex and "amputation for those guilty of theft under sharia law, with both penalties to also apply to children once implemented."
The second story comes out of the Middle East, where the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas recently fired 20 rockets into Israel and destroyed the homes of innocent civilians.
The Daily Wire asked Omar if she could provide comment on either story and if she found either of these acts to be "abhorrent and inhumane."
The Daily Wire also asked Omar if she would say that these acts are due to radical Islam.
Omar and her office refused to respond to multiple requests for comment.
The Daily Wire again contacted Omar's office on Friday via phone and email to give them another chance to respond and notified them that a non-response would be considered a "refusal to condemn" these acts. Omar's office again did not respond to the inquiries.
Wow! So Rep Omar is refusing to condemn the heinous act of stoning gay people to death? Why wouldn't she? This seems like such an obvious stance for any humanitarian to take.
I guess we shouldn't be surprised, considering her past.
