This is obviously extremely tragic news and hopefully politics can be put aside for a moment and sympathy can be shown toward Ilhan Omar and her family during this time.

Ilhan Omar Father Coronavirus

Ilhan Omar released the following tweet yesterday in regards to her father’s death:

Some conservatives on Twitter have already begun to take the high road on this situation.

There is usually no need to speak ill of the dead. Especially someone like Ilhan Omar’s father who died from Coronavirus at the age of 67. He was someone most people in the political sphere were unaware of until his diagnosis. It wouldn’t make much sense anyway to speak badly about Ilhan Omar’s policies and beliefs, her father is not a representative.

Still, some people on Twitter think that his social beliefs and alleged practices still warrant discussions on Twitter, even immediately following his death.

The validity of the allegation of Ilhan Omar marrying her own brother is still undecided, according to Snopes.

Regardless of the suspicions behind Ilhan Omar and her brother, or views on her platform, her father still died from Coronavirus very recently.

I think that at least for now, comments like the one above are definitely not in good taste.
