REPORT: Minnesota’s largest newspaper slams Rep. Ilhan Omar

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by FreeBeacon:

Minnesota’s largest newspaper argued Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) has not shown “change or personal growth” in the wake of her latest controversy over tweets widely condemned as anti-Semitic.

“Getting attention does not equal effective leadership. That is a reality that U.S. House Rep. Ilhan Omar urgently needs to grasp as she settles into her new role representing Minnesota’s Fifth Congressional District,” the Star Tribune editorial board wrote on Monday.

The article goes on to state the following:

The editorial board noted Omar’s latest tweet controversy came less than a month after the newspaper criticized her for spreading conspiracy theories about Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.). Omar also ultimately admitted last month that a widely-criticized tweet of hers from 2012 was “offensive.” She had for months defended the tweet, which claimed Israel had “hypnotized the world” while doing “evil.”

“With an apology comes the expectation of change and personal growth. Omar’s two tweets from the past weekend made it clear that hasn’t happened. The flippant tone of one of her statements also underscores doubts about her judgment, particularly when this latest communications crisis could have been easily avoided,” the editorial board added.
