Weird things happen in the USA these days… Can’t you feel it? The left pushes some kind of Islamic “revolution” on American soil. They want laws, they demand “justice”, they are always right- the rest of us are racist, xenophobes or nazis. However, they push their fantasies so far, the institutions may be affected.
A Somali Muslim state representative from Minneapolis made news last week when she was one of only two legislators in Minnesota’s lower house to vote against a bill to limit life insurance payouts to suspected terrorists.
Ilhan Omar — the first Somali-American elected to a state legislature anywhere in America, according to the Minnesota Daily — cast her vote against HF1397, which was introduced in response to the San Bernardino, California, terrorist attack in 2015.
Before that attack, terrorist Syed Farook took out $275,000 of policies he made sure were valid before he and his wife went on a rampage that killed 14 and wounded 22.
Upon Farook’s death in a police shootout, his mother unbelievably sought to collect on the policies. That’s the loophole that HF1397 was trying to close.
Terrorists “should not be able to provide for heirs or whoever (they) want by increasing (their) life insurance policy,” said Republican Rep. Joe Hoppe, the bill’s sponsor. Most of Minnesota’s lower chamber agreed, overwhelmingly passing HF1397 by a margin of 127-2.
The only other lawmaker to vote against the bill was Rep. John Lesch. According to the Minnesota House of Representatives website, Lesch “raised concerns about an amendment added to the bill, which doesn’t require a terrorist conviction in court to limit payment to beneficiaries.”
According to Lesch, that means insurance companies could use the provision for other claim denials.
Of course, that would mean terrorists like Farook would remain unaffected by the legislation, as he died in a police shootout on the same day of the attack. No terrorist who dies in a terror attack would have been convicted of the act, making the concern prima facie absurd.
In case you even needed to ask, both Lesch and Omar are members of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, the Minnesotan name for the Democrat Party.
According to WND, Omar had experience as a “community organizer” before she was elected in 2016. I wonder where we’ve heard that title before. One hopes the voters in her district decide it’s time to recall her and send her back to that profession. I have no doubt it’s super-important or something — and anyway, it sounds like she’s a million times better at doing that than voting on important legislation.
Some of our veterans still live like hobos-brave people who decided to give flash and blood to protect this nation, but the left would rather choose to support this kind of sick demands. There’s no doubt, someone wants to create chaos in the USA and we must not fall for their tricks.
