FLASHBACK: Rep. Ilhan Omar Blasted Founding Fathers, Claimed They Founded America on ‘Genocide’
President Donald Trump is under fire for questioning the patriotism of Somali refugee Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN), but a simple examination of her statements shows her incredible disdain for the nation that gave her harbor as a migrant from war-torn Somalia.
Omar addressed an event in April hosted by the Movement for Black Lives (M4BL), an anti-police Black Lives Matter front group, where she threatened white people with imminent conquest while denigrating the supposedly genocidal legacy of the Founding Fathers.
“We are collectively saying [to Trump], your vile attacks [and] your demented views are not welcome here,” Omar said at the event. “This is not going to be the country of the xenophobics. This is not going to be the country of white people.”
“This is not going to be the country of the few,” she added. “This is the country of the many. This is the country that was founded on the history of Native American genocide and on the backs of black slaves, but also, by immigrants.”
The event was hosted to defend Omar after Trump posted a Tweet highlighting her comments regarding the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks where she downplayed the role of Islamic terrorism at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser.
“For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen. Frankly, I’m tired of it. And every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it. CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said in a statement that earned her widespread criticism and outrage.

This caused the far left to rally around Omar, and use the opportunity to slam Trump as a racist.
“We believe the Democratic Party must take courageous, bold action to protect the life, progressive voice, and agenda of Ilhan Omar and other progressive women in Congress,” said Thenjiwe McHarris, a strategist with M4BL.
“In a moment where the White House chooses to cause harm through executive action or hateful messages, we need unapologetic, unwavering support for Congresswoman Omar throughout the Democratic Party,” McHarris added. “This means formally reprimanding the president by censure for inciting hate speech and violence toward the congresswoman.”
The far left finally got their wish yesterday after a resolution of condemnation toward Trump was was passed by the U.S. House regarding his politically incorrect tweets, but he may ultimately have the last laugh as the public discourse is now centered around Democratic Party extremists like Omar who express their open disgust with this nation and its proud history.
