Ilhan Omar has called for shutting down police and ending the entire US economy and political system. My observation is that ending police, the economy, and the government has been tried in her homeland of Somalia, and the results have been dismal.
Based on Ilhan Omar’s logic, Somalia should be a paradise. The are no evil White people so there is no systemic racism. There has been little or no police force for decades, and there are no evil corporations earning profits.
The reality is just the opposite. Immigration has not been a problem since everyone who can is leaving the country. 73% of the population lives in extreme poverty with a per capita GDP of only $348 per year.
Somalia has had no functioning central government, no police, and a barely functioning economy; the country continues to be embroiled in a civil war that has gone on for more than 30 years. Estimates are 500,000 people have died in the conflict. The life expectancy is only 53 years.
Why would Ilhan Omar want to bring the misery of Somalia to the US?
Is there any reason to believe conditions in America would improve if we followed Somalia’s lead?
For background here are links to a summary of conditions in Somalia and a video of Omar talking about her proposed changes for America:
