By CCN.com: Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is a Mogadishu-born political pirate. A freshman congresswoman who is hijacking America’s headlines—just as Somali pirates hijack ships in the Arabian Sea.
Socialists like Omar and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) masquerade as “caring” Democrats. But they hate America and demonize “the white man.” This past week, Fox News’s Jesse Watters challenged Omar to say one good thing about America.
She can’t, and won’t. Omar wants us to feel bad by only talking about what’s wrong with the United States. Look, Ilhan Omar: There’s plenty of bad things in Somalia. Why’d you immigrate here if America is so evil?
This past week, Rep. Omar claimed that we Americans are responsible for Venezuela’s economic and political misery. Then she played the gender and race cards to defend herself. It’s a desperate playbook that low-IQ people use.
Rep. Omar, before you make proud Americans feel too bad or guilty, remember that Somalia’s most noteworthy contribution to global society is killing and stealing from maritime hostages.
America’s Founding Fathers warned future generations of traitors like you. “Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism,” wrote George Washington. “For true patriots to be silent, is dangerous,” wrote Samuel Adams.
On “Democracy Now!,” Omar said:
“This particular bullying [by the U.S.] and the use of sanctions to eventually intervene and make regime change really does not help the people of countries like Venezuela and it certainly does not help and is not in the interest of the United States.”
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Fox News that Omar shows “unbelievable ignorance” and that her views on Venezuela are “disgusting.” Vice President Mike Pence said Omar “doesn’t know what she’s talking about.”
U.S. sanctions on Venezuela’s economy target the oil and banking industries, but these are designed to remove President Nicolas Maduro out of office. Under Maduro’s watch, 9 out of 10 Venezuelans live in poverty despite the nation possessing the largest oil reserves in the world. The bolivar is worthless—meaning grocery shelves are empty because producers can’t get paid (in real money).
And you want Maduro to stay in power?
Rep. Omar said:
I don’t believe that interventions that are pushing for regime change are in the best interest of Venezuela and the best interest of the American people.
Omar, many people disagree with you, not because you’re a woman of color, but because you’re the dumbest politician in Congress. America is gracious in welcoming you as an immigrant. But if this country is too evil for you, then move to Cuba or Venezuela and enjoy socialism there.
American taxpayers shoulder a heavy burden to improve dystopian countries. But these wastelands and their regimes never help the U.S. Yet we graciously help their people by supporting democracy and free trade.
Don’t assume that you’re entitled to respect by others.
Too many idiots dominate the headlines. Aside from Rep. Ilhan Omar, these fountains of foolishness include CNN, Al Sharpton, Joy Behar (“The View”), Chris Matthews (MSNBC), Juan Williams (Fox News), and others.
Garbage in, garbage out.
Omar doesn’t have the smarts, decency, or patriotism to belong in Congress. If all our lawmakers behave like her and AOC, America would be as bad as she depicts it.
