Cop hater Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) just took the Woke show up a full notch on the absurdity scale.
The U.S. representative and member of the House’s radical foursome ‘the Squad’ recently blamed police for a spike in crime in her Minneapolis congressional district. Omar, you’ll remember, led the rabid anti-police campaign in 2020, demanding that “we need to completely dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department.”
Her friends in anarchy agreed and began cutting the hell out of the police budget.
More than a year later, Omar complains, “the police have chosen to not fulfill their oath of office and to provide the public safety they are owed to the citizens they serve.”
U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), like most reasonable people, was left shaking his head.
“The person who said ‘we need to completely dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department,’ supported the defunding of that police department, and demonizes law enforcement as a ‘cancer’ on society is now… complaining that police aren’t stopping crime,” Crenshaw wrote in a retweet of the Omar video.

Can’t make this up. https://t.co/TrSHGXNhxI

“Can’t make this up,” he added.
Sadly, the surreal is becoming all too real thanks to the insanity of the far left, which now controls the Democratic Party.
“In South Carolina, the people who repeatedly start fires, are called arsonists. In Minnesota, they are called members of Congress,” Fox News host and former congressman Trey Gowdy said.
But Minneapolis liberals are reaping what they’ve sown. In placating the anti-police mob, the city council passed a budget that cut nearly $20 million from the law enforcement budget. This, after elected officials vilified the police force in the wake of the death of George Floyd, a black man killed by a Minneapolis officer.
Now Minneapolis has recorded a surge in violent crime, including record homicide numbers.
Of course, to the police defunders the surge in crime is the fault of the remaining law enforcement officers who have yet to be defunded.
The Woke show is getting weirder.
You can’t make this stuff up.
