Ilhan Omar loves to incite hatred by citing opinions and trying to disguise them as facts!
In one of her latest rants, she spewed: “This is our country, and we are where we belong. And I told people on my election night, in the great state of Minnesota, we don’t just welcome refugees, we send them to represent us in Washington. And as much as he is spewing his fascist ideology on stage, telling you as citizens to go back because they don’t agree with his detrimental policies for our country, we tell people that here in the United States dissent is patriotic. Here in the United States disagreement is welcomed. Debate is welcomed. And especially in the people’s house, all of our voices are uplifted and heard. And we see her, we see me, we see her, we see everyone in this country. And they are not only my neighbors, my friends, my sisters and brothers — they are also my constituents, and they are my fellow citizens. And this American president — this president does not speak for them. And we are going to make sure that we get a president that they can be proud of.”
Omar is upset because on the 18th July, when Trump gave a rally in NC, he started talking about “The Squad,” the four far-left lawmakers whom he’s been sparring with all week: Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
When Trump began listing off negative things Rep. Omar had said about the United States, the rowdy crowd began chanting, “Send her back!” Trump did not appear to acknowledge the chant and continued with his remarks.
The media is already turning this into something about race, which it’s clearly not. If he incited the chant he would have repeated what the crowd was saying. Not like what happened with the “Crooked Hillary” remark, where he appeared to give rise to the crowd.
The crowd has been upset with lawmakers like Omar. She is a first generation immigrant who are usually always very patriotic and proud to have become an American, yet Omar attacks this country every chance she gets! Everyone, Trump supporter or not, are all aware of the hate filled garbage that the “The Squad” or Gang of Ignorant Four keep spewing.
As the journalist Tom Elliott reported; “The average American loves their country and believes being an American is a privilege. Omar seems to view America as a blight, being American an embarrassment.
As a quick refresher: Rep. Omar frequently describes Americans as ignorant, racist, and xenophobic; she’s mocked Christianity and the idea America is a “great” country, even accusing the U.S. of committing human rights abuses; she’s claimed Jewish interests control U.S. foreign policy; likened the United States to al Qaeda and Hezbollah; blamed the U.S. for the crisis in Venezuela; specifically avoided denouncing ISIS/al Qaeda; spoken favorably of Iran, and suggested she’s more patriotic than her conservative critics.
Imagine inviting a new neighbor into your home, offering them food, friendship, and assistance, only for that person to begin lecturing you about all of your imperfections, about how that neighbor who keeps stealing from you actually has a good point, about your best friends across the street actually being evil people, and about how your home won’t be very nice until he/she guts it and builds something entirely new in its place. At some point you might be tempted to tell this person to take a hike.
Chanting “send her back” isn’t an attack on Omar’s race or even an attack on immigrants. It’s an expression of anger about an immigration policy that pays no mind to whether applicants actually appreciate the country that’s welcoming them.”
Omar better worry more about, if the authorities think she committed tax and immigration fraud, then her next hate filled speech!
