Ilhan Omar happens to put the blame on the USA for Venezuela problems. Quite convenient isn't it? Possibly she will coin the next argument that Nicolás Maduro went off the deep end after watching too many episodes of "The Apprentice"? So really, how can she continue to support President Nicolás Maduro, who is being investigated for Crimes Against Humanity by the International Criminal Court [ICC] in the Netherlands. Actually, take a look at an article written several years ago about the Nicolás Maduro administration along with honorable mention to his predecessor, President Hugo Chávez. Note that that article was written on JULY 5, 2016, well before Trump was elected along with Vice President Pence and others in the administration who she continues to rail against. Hers the 2016 article from the:

theconversation.com...



The Conversation Academic rigor, journalistic flair





How today’s crisis in Venezuela was created by Hugo Chávez’s ‘revolutionary’ plan July 5, 2016 9.05pm ED



Even President Obama's administration commented on the Crimes Against Humanity in 2015!!!



obamawhitehouse.archives.gov...


So who referred Madoro to the ICC? Here's an article by NPR.




Latin American Countries Urge Investigation Of Venezuela For Crimes Against Humanity September 27, 20186:16 PM ET

www.npr.org...

Five South American countries and Canada have asked the International Criminal Court, a Netherlands-based tribunal, to place Venezuela under investigation for crimes against humanity. This is the first time a country has been referred to the ICC for investigation by an outside state. Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Paraguay and Canada submitted their request on Wednesday to the court.

The alleged crimes in Venezuela date back to 2014, and include torture, the arbitrary detention of political opponents and anti-government protesters, and more than 8,000 extrajudicial executions cited in a dossier by the Organization of American States.

Jose Miguel Vivanco, head of the Americas division at Human Rights Watch, spoke to NPR, "Our research shows that the abuses in Venezuela were not isolated, or the results of excesses by rogue security forces members. Our documentation actually shows that multiple security forces committed widespread abuses repeatedly, over a period of months and years, in different locations across the country, including in controlled environments such as military installations, or police stations."


Here s the actual web site link and their statement to the ICC court:



www.icc-cpi.int... Focus: Alleged crimes committed since at least April 2017, in the context of demonstrations and related political unrest.

Jurisdiction – General status Venezuela deposited its instrument of ratification of the Rome Statute on 7 June 2000. The ICC may therefore exercise its jurisdiction over Rome Statute crimes committed on the territory of Venezuela or by its nationals from 1 July 2002 onwards.

Procedural history and focus of the preliminary examination The preliminary examination of the situation in Venezuela was announced on 8 February 2018. It will analyse crimes allegedly committed in this State Party since at least April 2017, in the context of demonstrations and related political unrest.


Here's one link link to her and several other Democrats giving support to the Maduro administration in Venezuela:


www.gop.gov...

Democrats sent a clear message about their new foreign policy agenda by appointing Rep. Ilhan Omar – who has a history of anti-Israel rhetoric – to the House Foreign Affairs Committee. But Omar’s decision to endorse socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro via Twitter proves just how disconnected House Democrats have become…


Finally, another link to those 65 countries who are against Nickolas Maduro:


www.aljazeera.com...

Venezuela: 65 countries support Guaido, while UN backs Maduro Both sides are committed to entrenching themselves with countries that support them, rather than talks with the other side. by Gabriel Elizondo 15 Feb 2019


So what is wrong with her? Seems to me shes trying to start some sort of revolution as its absolute that she could care less about the citizens in Venezuela.

Easy. Because she is part of the opposition party. No matter what the Trump admin chooses to do, her side will choose the opposite, no matter what it is. Even if it means supporting dictators.

Maybe ask Sean penn or Michael moore.
They were huge hugo Chavez fans and the current state of Venezuela rests largely on his shoulders.

Maduro is just Chavez 2.0...

Maybe if you could understand their fascination you will understand hers but it will probably just add to the confusion.

Those who think the US are the root of Venezuela's problems don't rally care who's in power here. It has nothing to do with who runs our system of government and everything to do with our economic system and the fact that we are a "white oppressive" system as far as they're concerned.

If we were a socialist government run by brown people, it wouldn't be our fault that Venezuela is like it is, but then, their mind games say that if we had been a socialist system run by brown people, Venezuela would be a flourishing world power ... so would Cuba.

She supports anything which goes against Judeo-Christian values of liberty. Her & leftists are against privacy/property rights, due-process, freedom of speech, electoral college, 2nd amendment, Israel as a nation, borders, free-markets, etc.. Her & the majority of leftists are anti-American & anti-Western civilization.

“Omar recently spoke in Florida at a private event hosted by Islamic Relief, a charity organization long said to have deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Over the weekend, she will appear at another private event in California that is hosted by CAIR-CA PAC, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR a group that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-funding incident.”


I believe she is an undercover Islamic terrorist sympathizer, which would go hand in hand with supporting oppressive regimes.

I think I understand her. Do a Google search on 3rd Reich + Islam.

Easy Answer: Socialists have to stick together; no matter how many people are dying, you must support everyone of the like to avoid the horrible, horrible fate of....... having to admit you're a flaming derpwad with no intelligence or moral standing.

People are being starved, shot, run over with trucks, beaten, etc., but according to her and other dems, it's nothing but rainbows, sunshine, and five star dining down in Venezuela.

Gotta keep the dream alive, guys.

...... because as we all know, that's not REAL socialism, afterall.

Omar, Rashida, Cortez, are secret weapons, planted in the Dem party by Republicans. You notice the President and McConnell rarely criticizes them.

It's all about identity politics.

Some people do not have the capacity to lead, legislate. They are simple-minded morons.

So what they do is use their skin color, their gender preference, their religion, instead of using their minds.

That's all they have.

Identity politicians like Omar aren't bright enough to have some ulterior motive.

They say stupid things, and then run behind their "identity" instead of providing rational argument.

They are, to put it frankly, racists and bigots. And racists and bigots are never that bright to begin with.

My question is why do you frame the conversation as Omar supports Maduro? You did the same thing with AOC. I haven't found anything on either of the two actively supporting Maduro.

Don't get me wrong, both of them are idiots and have plenty of policy issues you could go after them on...

But when you make stuff up and sell it as fact it just delude the conversation and gives them fodder when you do the very thing many do with Trump.

Many people support Maduro, whether explicitly or implicitly. Both would leave Maduro to his own devices if they had their way.

Come on its all out there for anyone to read. Omar attacks Pence and the USA and puts the blame on the USA. NOT. So once again an attempt to muddy the facts that are available to anyone out there by simply doing an internet search. That's all I did. The United Nations also supports Maduro along with Russia and China. Can you back up your opinion? Made what up? So go ahead and just keep pushing because it makes me work harder.

So here's a report on Human Rights violations in Venezuela by Amnesty International. Please read it so as to deny ignorance and plausible deniability. Look up House Resolution 1156 by Rep Banks. Look at what committee its in [Foreign Affairs] and who is on that committee. Lets watch what happens to it.

She is a professional at attacking her critics by using her sex, race, color and religion and then she trumps all with the "white" ace card. Yep she is a racist of the worst kind.

Correct. Plus she plays the Big Oil Card yet


Venezuela nationalized its oil industry in 1976, creating the state-run company Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA)


She hammers on the USA? Venezuela has the worlds largest oil reserves. Russia boots are on the ground there. Connection?

The U.S. is cranking up pressure on Venezuela. A new EMBARGO just went into effect.
