U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) tweeted out late last night accusing everyone that voted against the January 6th Commission of acting in bad faith and nefariousness.
The votes against the January 6th commission are admissions of guilt. Only guilty persons hide from the truth.— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) May 29, 2021
Omar also encouraged fellow Democrats to stop trying to negotiate with Republicans. Omar tweeted saying, “We have the Senate, the House, and the Presidency. Stop negotiating with a losing insurrectionist party who are trying to sabotage our democracy, pass the infrastructure package through reconciliation and abolish the filibuster.”

Stop negotiating with a losing insurrectionist party who are trying to sabotage our democracy, pass the infrastructure package through reconciliation and abolish the filibuster.
Congressional hopeful and America First proponent, Jarome Bell, was infuriated by Omar’s viewpoints. Bell accused her of calling for a “one party dictatorship” and not living up to the purpose of “democracy” and “congress” in America.
Ilhan Omar just called us Republicans a “losing insurrectionist party” who Democrats shouldn’t have to negotiate with anymore.— Jarome Bell (@JaromeBellVA) May 29, 2021
Why is a sitting member of American Congress calling for a one-party dictatorship? Does she even know what the words DEMOCRACY or CONGRESS mean?
Republican Candidate for District 24 in Florida, Lavern Spicer, also attacked Omar, accusing her of calling for tyranny.
That heifer Ilhan Omar tweeted that since they control everything they should “Stop negotiating with a losing insurrectionist party who are trying to sabotage our democracy”.— Lavern Spicer (@lavern_spicer) May 29, 2021
Lady, negotiating with us is how AMERICAN DEMOCRACY works! What you’re calling for is tyranny 🤦🏾♀️
The bill required to create an independent investigation into the January 6th protest failed on Friday due to the lack of 10 Republican votes. Notably, six GOP senators backed the bill: Mitt Romney (UT), Susan Colins (ME), Bill Cassidy (LA), Rob Portman (OH), Lisa Murkowski (AL) and Ben Sasse (NE).
These GOP congressmen slammed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and other party leaders that filibustered to prevent the bill from passage. Murkowski accused these party leaders of being too scared to upset former President Donald Trump and that they had political consideration affecting their decision:
“To be making a decision for the short-term political gain at the expense of understanding and acknowledging what was in front of us, on Jan. 6, I think we need … to look at that critically…Is that really what this is about is everything is just one election cycle after another, or are we going to acknowledge that as, as a country that is based on these principles of democracy that we hold so dear?”
Five of the six GOP members that voted to investigate the Capitol protest also voted to convict President Trump for an “incitement of an insurrection”. The five members were Sasse, Caddidy, Collins, Murkowski and Romney.
President Joe Biden weighed in on what was happening in the House, saying, “I can’t imagine anyone voting against the establishing of a commission on the greatest assault since the Civil War on the Capitol.”
GOP leaders McConnell and McCarthy led the filibuster against this commission. Kevin McCarthy pointed out that this bill failed to allow investigation of any violence during BLM riots. Former President Trump issued a statement last week calling this bill a “democrat trap” and urged the GOP leaders to start “listening” to him.
As Democrats like Ilhan Omar continue to promote divisiveness and nonpartisanship, it will be up to the GOP to either fight back or lose all influence. Some believe that there is a presence of too many RINOs in the GOP that are not fit to properly fight back. Candidates like Lavern Spicer in Florida, Michael Sisco in West Virginia, and Jarome Bell in Virginia believe they have the fighting attitude and necessary pro-Trumpism attitude to best serve the 74 million that voted for Trump.
