'Squad' member lhan Omar claims Democratic party's one 'big family,' ignores internal sparring over agenda

代表. 伊尔汗·奥马尔(Ilhan Omar), D-Minn。, raised eyebrows on Sunday with her characterization of the Democratic Party as onebig family,” despite the renewed infighting over a spate of losses in the 2020 election that continues to divide moderate Democrats and the party’s more progressive wing.

We all have our own constituencies that we have to serve. We are part of a caucus working on behalf of the people. We think of ourselves as the party of the people,” 她说.

Omar’s comments, 然而, come as Democrats continue to trade blame over who’s ultimately responsible for the lackluster showing in the 2020 选举. While Democratic nominee Joe Biden defeated President Trump in the presidential race, Democrats lost seats in the House and failed to flip a number of seats in the Senate from Republican hands.

But on Sunday, Omar appeared to change her tune, crediting the party’s unity for Biden’s victorya rejection, 她说, of the Republicans thatallowed chaos to reign for four years” of President Trump’s administration.

There was a movement that happened this summer, and it delivered this victory, the rise of the amount of people that registered to vote,” 她说. “We owe to the movement to make sure that the chaos that they voted against does not follow us to our caucus. And to make sure that the justice that they seek is implemented in the policies that we advocate for.”

“I know that Biden invited the American people to be a unifying force against darkness. And as a caucus, we have to be unified against that,” 她说. “To think about allowing ourselves to let the Republicans decide how we are to function as a caucus is really painful because this is, 你懂, a party that has lied, that has smeared, that has used everything that they can to attack us.

Omar added, “The American people have decided to put us in charge to say we want something different. We can’t disappoint them.”
