Once again, Rep. Ilhan Omar is sparking questions of why she is serving in the U.S. Congress and being paid by American taxpayers.
The Minnesota Democrat was trashing the U.S., to enthusiastic applause, at a “Democracy Now!” & “Rising Majority” event in Washington on Friday.
Sitting alongside her Democrat colleague and fellow Muslim, Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Rep. Omar slammed U.S. foreign policy and essentially blamed this country that welcomed her as a Somali refugee when she was a child of being responsible for catastrophic floods in other countries.
The two members of the so-called “squad” blamed America for everything that was happening in the world and the far-left activists in the audience ate it all up.
“We’re having a conversation about cross-border negotiations happening for workers because all of our destinies are tied together. When you see a Somali refugee, or an Iraqi refugee, or a Libyan refugee — we often are like ‘Oh, this is my neighbor — they must have survived some struggle.’ We don’t ever pause to think, ‘What American policy made them come over here?’” Rep. Omar told the Howard University audience.
“When you see flooding happening in a country abroad and you are urgently raising money for these lives to be saved, you don’t think about, ‘How have I contributed to the climate warming that has led to these floodings and these catastrophes that are taking place abroad?” she continued.
In other remarks, Rep. Omar contended that America should be “re-imagining a vision of what our foreign policy should be” in light of problems she claimed were caused by the American military. The ungrateful refugee also urged the country to stop using money for “militarizing our government” and use it instead “for the prospect of peace around the world.”
Not surprisingly, folks on Twitter slammed the Minnesota congresswoman for her continuing disrespect and dangerous outlook.
