Ilhan Omar Slammed For Supporting Genocide
Ilhan Omar of Minnesota has been widely condemned for her recent vote abstention.
Omar abstained from a nearly unanimous House vote officially recognizing the Armenian genocide.
Omar argued that the resolution was a political statement designed to condemn Turkey, which denies the genocide.
"Accountability and recognition of genocide should not be used as a cudgel in a political fight."
She added that the resolution should've recognized other human-rights violations.
