FLASHBACK: Rep. Ilhan Omar Blasted Founding Fathers, Claimed They Founded America on ‘Genocide’

Omar’s own words prove President Donald Trump’s assertions about her to be correct.

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.

Trump’s tweet about her comments can be seen here:

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.

FLASHBACK: Three Recent Supreme Court Justices Were Confirmed Within 45 Days

There’s ample precedent for a quick confirmation.

Published

There are 45 days until the November 3rd presidential election, and there’s ample precedent for an expedited confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice in such a timeframe following a vacancy.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, setting up a possible contentious confirmation process to fill her seat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging that a tentative Trump administration nominee for the position will receive a vote on the Senate floor, despite outrage and indignation on the part of progressives falsely maintaining that McConnell is breaking precedent he set by refusing to confirm Merrick Garland. President Obama tried to get Garland confirmed when the opposing party controlled the Senate, a divided government that does not exist in 2020.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg herself was formally nominated by President Clinton on June 22nd, 1993. Her confirmation process began on July 20th, and she was confirmed on August 3rd, with a total of 42 days elapsing between her nomination and confirmation.

John Paul Stevens’ nomination was advanced and confirmed in a speedy 19 days, and Sandra Day O’Connor was confirmed in 1981 in a total of 33 days.

In fact, every single Supreme Court nomination of the past 45 years was nominated and voted upon within a shorter duration of the time remaining in Donald Trump’s first presidential term.

There’s actually wide precedent for nominating and confirming a Supreme Court justice within the confines of President Trump’s first term, and Democrats are being untruthful or erroneous to suggest otherwise.

McConnell is beginning initial work to advance confirmation hearings, with potential liberal Republicans such as Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski presenting themselves as possible holdouts. It is possible to approve a judge with 50 votes in the Senate and a Vice Presidential tiebreaker.
