Rep Ilhan Omar should not be serving as a representative of any American. She proved that when she marginalized 9/11 by calling it “some people did something.” Does she not realize where she lives? But luckily people stepped up to let her know how wrong she is. Rep Crenshaw, The New York Post, and Trump made it a point to call her out for her bad behavior.
This is a top-notch response. He didn’t say anything directly at her aside from we remember. She still does not have the common decency to apologize. In fact, she thinks she is being attacked because she is a minority or Islamic.
“She described her process in Congress as “growth,” noting that if she says something that “pains” someone, be it a constituent or a colleague, she is willing to “listen” to their concerns. And she expects the same treatment.”
“When you have people on Fox News that question if I’m actually American, or I put America first, I expect my colleagues to also say that’s not okay. Or when people call me a terrorist.”
“I took an oath,” she insisted. “I am as American as everyone else is!”
Here she is on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
AOC of course once again tried to defend Omar’s offensive behavior this time claiming the president was attacking her.
“Members of Congress have a duty to respond to the President’s explicit attack today.@IlhanMN’s life is in danger. For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, dangerous targeting of a member of Congress.
She added ” First they came for..” in reference to a Holocaust survivor’s quote.
“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
The quote has no relevance to the situation. Unless you look at it as we need to correct Omar now as she is getting out of hand.
Trump did not attack Ilhan Omar, he explained just how wrong she is. And that’s what everyone else should be doing too. She needs to be shamed as she thinks there is nothing wrong with what she said.
