Squad member and refugee Democratic Rep, Ilhan Omar, is in hot water again over anti-American and anti-Semitic comments. How many passes will she get?
Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar constantly condemns the country that has made her successes possible. America took her in from a war-ravaged hell hole in Somalia, (And yes, it is a S**t hole country, that isn’t racist, it is just a fact) and gave her freedom and the ability to live out her wildest dreams.
And how does she repay this country?
She shows her gratitude for her freedom by equating America with terrorists…
That is an odd way to say “thank you”, isn’t it?
But the woman who has a history of anti-Semitic statements and who once downplayed the horrors of 9/11 by referring to the perpetrators as “some people who did something,” added to her repertoire of hateful comments when she said, “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban. I asked @SecBlinken where people are supposed to go for justice.”
The U.S. and Israel should never be mentioned in the same breath as Hamas and the Taliban, and the fact that a sitting Congresswomen did so is shameful and she should immediately be removed from her seat on the Foreign Relations Committee.
However, that is of course not going to happen, because Speaker Pelosi will never do such a thing.
Nasty Nancy had her chance to remove her in the past when she made her anti-Semitic comments, only to issue a watered down statement barely condemning those comments via a House resolution. It was barely a slap on the wrist.
This time Speaker Pelosi tried to sound tough when she issued the following statement:
“Legitimate criticism of the policies of both the United States and Israel is protected by the values of free speech and democratic debate. And indeed, such
criticism is essential to the strength and health of our democracies, but drawing false equivalencies between democracies like the U.S. and Israel and groups that engage in terrorism like Hamas and the Taliban foments prejudice and undermines progress toward a future of peace and security for all.”
Her words are hollow.
Pelosi had a chance to send a message by reprimanding Omar for her past bigoted comments against Jews, but she failed to act, and she emboldened Omar to continue her hateful ways knowing she wouldn’t face repercussions for doing so.
Naturally, Omar’s fellow members of the Squad came to her defense. Most egregiously, Representative Ayanna Pressley used the occasion to defend both Omar and the Palestinians.
Pressley tweeted, “Stop the bad faith attempts to take @IlhanMN’s words out of context. … Imagine if Congress was outraged by what Palestinians endure daily.”
This statement is built on a false premise, also known as a lie.
Israel have never been the aggressors against the Palestinians, they were doing what any rational country would do when attacked, they fought back to defend their country…
But of course facts don’t matter to the Squad; they never allow facts to get in the way of their narrative.
Ilhan Omar could be a great spokeswoman for America if she shared her story of being saved from a war-torn impoverished nation by America who then made it possible for her to become a rich and successful representative in this nation’s government…
But instead she spits on the country that saved her life and the life of her family.
Hopefully, one day she will wake up and realize that America isn’t so bad after all…
But you shouldn’t hold your breath.
