Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) apparently made another Freudian slip in a newly resurfaced video, referring to Somalia as “my country” before quickly correcting herself with “the country I came from” in a speech in which she derided President Donald Trump and the famous “Muslim ban”.
In yet another example of Omar apparently putting her Somalian citizenship over her United States citizenship, a video has resurfaced of the freshman Congresswoman and card-carrying “The Squad” referring to Somalia as “my country.”
The video, posted by We Build The Wall’s Brian Kolfage, shows Omar saying “The first day this president introduced the Muslim ban, knowing that my co–the country I came from–“. The video is a short clip of a longer speech, in which Omar appears to have made the allusion that President Trump is somehow racist or Islamophobic due to the famous “Muslim ban”, which was actually a limited freeze on immigration for certain problematic countries identified by the Obama administration.
Right from her mouth “my country”.

This is the second such video of Omar referring to Somalia as her country to resurface in the last two weeks.
In another recording of Omar speaking at the Revolution Somali Youth League in 2015, the Congresswoman referred to Somalia as “our nation back home.”
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) referred to Somalia as “our nation back home” in a newly resurfaced 2015 speech, adding fuel to the fire of the controversy surrounding her her anti-American, anti-Semitic sentiments.
Newly resurfaced video shows that, reportedly while speaking before the Revolution Somali Youth League in 2015, Omar told the audience that the 2016 elections represented an “ability” for Somali-Americans to influence the future of the United States, as well as Somalia.
“2016 is election cycle, and you guys have an ability to make an impact on where our nation is headed,” said Omar. “Not only here in the United States, but even our nation back home.”
Omar recently refused to condemn Antifa after a member of the radical leftist organization launched a terrorist attack using an AR-15 rifle and Molotov cocktails at a migrant detention facility in Tacoma, Washington.
In fact, she was caught on video laughing maniacally as a journalist repeatedly asked her and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to disavow the organization.
Video journalist Keean Bexte repeatedly asked Omar and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to disavow the Antifa Firebomber who attacked a migrant detention facility in Tacoma, Washington last weekend. Apparently believing she was not on camera as she entered a vehicle, Omar is seen laughing maniacally as the journalist continued to ask questions, a reaction that audibly threw Bexte off kilter and appeared to shock the journalist.
“Do you feel responsible at all? Will you tell Americans not to be violent anymore? Antifa to be,” he stammered, noticing Omar laughing in the next seat over, “to be exact? Should Antifa stop being violent?”
On Twitter, Bexte wrote “After repeatedly asking @Ilhan and @AOC if they would condemn the Antifa firebomber, and if they felt partly responsible, the two got into their SUV and Omar (likely thinking she was off camera) burst into ear to ear laughter.” He added, “Was there ever a doubt Omar hated America?”
Omar and “The Squad” have thus far been completely unrepentant in their anti-American and often anti-Semitic views.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
