The House held a vote today on a resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide.

Believe it or not, some members actually voted no, which is quite gross:

But not stunning and brave human rights defender Ilhan Omar. Nope, she stunningly and bravely voted “present”:

Oh well. At least she had a good reason.

J/K. No she didn’t:

Did we mention she’s a human rights crusader?

Actually, Chris, it’s pretty easy to square this “present” vote with who Ilhan Omar is as a person.

On a related note:


Well, Omar never met a human rights abuser she didn’t like.

Now, if you want to pass a resolution sanctioning Israel, then Ilhan will be there with bells on.



Rep. Ihan Omar, who favors sanctioning Israel, says ‘we shouldn’t rush into sanctioning countries’ like Iran
