Rep Omar Blows Up At Simple Question

Rep Ilhan Omar is once again claiming that she is being treated unfairly. This time it was due to being asked how she felt about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). She was asked because it is still practiced in some Muslim Communities. But she took offense to this since no one else was asked these types of questions.

“Your second question is an appalling question because I always feel that there are bills we wrote on, bills we sponsor, many statements we put out and then we are in a panel like this and then a question is posed  ‘could you and Rashida do this? It’s like how often, should I make a schedule? Like, does this need to be on repeat every five minutes? Should I be like, ‘so, today I forgot to condemn al Qaeda, so here’s the al Qaeda one. Today I forgot to condemn [female genital mutilation], so here it goes. Today I forgot to condemn Hamas, so here it goes.’

It is a very frustrating question that comes up. You can look up my record. I’ve voted for bills doing exactly what you are asking me to do. I have put out statements upon statements there is a bill in Congress, there’s a resolution that I am an equal author of that I voted out of the foreign affairs committee.

“I am, I think, quite disgusted to be honest that as Muslim legislators we are constantly being asked to waste our time speaking to issues that other people are not asked to speak to because the assumption exists that we somehow support and are for, right? No, there is an assumption. So I want to make sure the next time someone is in an audience and is looking at me and Rashida, and Abdul and Sam, that they ask us the proper questions they will probably ask any member of Congress or any legislator.”

Watch The Video Below. 

She forgets where she came from. In Somalia, there is a 98% prevalence of FGM and 64% of Somalians think that FGM should continue to be performed, while only 32% think it should be stopped. There is no one else in Congress that this question could apply to. I don’t see why she is so angry about it.
