Is Ilhan Omar a socialist?

According to her campaign, Ilhan Omar identifies herself as a “Democratic Socialist” She further clarifies that although she doesn’t define herself as a full socialist, she supports socialist ideals.

One has to wonder though, as the old adage goes… if something walks like a duck and quacks like a duck… it’s probably a duck.

Just be clear to that certain group of readers that may need this further clarification; I’m not being rude to Omar. I’m not being racist, I’m not being *.phobic and furthermore, I’m not calling her a duck.

I’m calling her a socialist.
