A controversial congresswoman, who is open about holding extremist political views, wants the administration to seize private health institutions due to the deadly CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has proposed the Trump administration take over control of private hospitals to fight the CCP Virus.
“Here is maybe a radical idea to deal with some of the pressures our health care system is facing,” she said on Twitter. “All private hospitals should be made public for the duration of the virus.”
The idea received a lackluster response on social media, with many users expressing their opposition to a plan that resembled a left-wing approach to government administration.
“Here is another radical idea Ilhan Omar, let us admit that communism does not work and that it caused the Chinese Virus,” Sean Antrim said on Twitter.
“I would rather go to a private, not-for-profit hospital over a government-run hospital any day of the week, and anybody who thinks otherwise is insane,” Denny Loggins said on Twitter.
“You mean like Italy where they are parsing care and ventilators?” Diane said on Twitter. “Those are nationalized hospitals and health care, here we have choices. There they must stay in their zone, no thanks.”
Omar is no stranger to controversial statements. She previously expressed deep pleasure and satisfaction when others called her a “radical.”
“If believing that health care, housing, and education are basic rights is radical then I am proud to be a radical,” she said in a Twitter post that was removed according to Fox News.
Omar’s outburst came after she was criticized for her left-leaning policies that favor greater regulation of Medicaid, veteran’s health care, universities, and property taxes.
She separately introduced a resolution in the House that appeared to encourage boycotting Israel, compared the country to Nazi Germany, and spread anti-Semitic analogies on social media.
These actions prompted advocacy group Stop Antisemitism to declare her winner of the 2019 Anti-Semite of the year award.
The competition exposes key people who appear to threaten American values, morals, and principles through spreading “hate and bigotry against the Jewish people” according to the Jewish News Syndicate (JNS).
“Anti-Semitism is plaguing our nation and it is about time we create real consequences for those spreading it,” Stop Antisemitism Director Liora Rez told JNS. “By exposing bigots like Rep. Ilhan Omar, we are ensuring that the public is alert and able to take action.”
