Lewis Slams Smith’s Endorsement of Omar & Acceptance of Insane, Far- Left Proposals & Statements

July 22, 2020

EAGAN, Minn. — U.S. Senate candidate Jason Lewis released the following statement slamming Senator Tina Smith’s endorsement of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, and her continued silence on everything from the left’s push to abolish the police to Attorney General Keith Ellison’s statement that rape should not be responded to by the police.

“Senator Tina Smith continues to prove that she is all in with the most radical members of the Democratic Party. Just yesterday Tina Smith heartily endorsed Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who downplayed the 9/11 attacks as ‘some people did something’ and has a long history of controversial comments, including calls for abolishing the police as well as our economic system of free enterprise, not to mention ethical scandals. An endorsement of Omar is an endorsement of the most radical and dangerous policies of the left, and Tina Smith proudly gave her stamp of approval.

Give Tina some credit, though. After months of cowering in the basement, at least she’s finally owning up to her radical, anti-American positions. Tina Smith’s ringing endorsement of Omar comes as little surprise given her affinity for the defund the police movement. When Tina Smith isn’t proclaiming there is something ‘dangerously wrong with the role police play in our society,’ she’s issuing intentionally vague statements on how we need to ‘reimagine policing.’ 

Earlier this week, Tina Smith’s fellow ‘squad’ aficionado, Attorney General Keith Ellison said police should not be responding to calls involving rape. This is dangerous, insane, and puts women across Minnesota at risk. And where is Tina Smith? For the sake of her constituents, especially women, she should be condemning this proposal, but instead she is staying silent.

By refusing to condemn or even endorsing the most radical, anarchic, anti-American fringes in her party, Tina Smith has made it clear that she agrees with these dangerous proposals and does not care about the safety of her constituents.”
