What is really sad is that a woman like Omar that represents the people of Minnesota's 5th district with her Anti American speech. Are the people of that region on board with her hate speech or are they hating her for making such a stink of false statements?



I am so tired of the members of "the squad" trashing on the very country and institutions that allowed them to rise to such a lofty position in our Gov. I wonder how much influence Omar would have in Somalia.



I also can't help but wonder how critical "the Squad' would be if there was a Democrat in the WH? We had issues of race when Obama fanned the flames during his 8 years and the Left was mostly quiet ?

Hegira is upon us. This is only the beginning. Wake up, sheeple.
I am not aware she praised Somalia. Do you have a link?

She has taken a page out of Moderator cut: another’s playbook and persists with rhetoric that gets non- stop media attention.

She and “ the squad” represent < 1% of the House of Representatives.

When becoming a green card holder and a citizen, one has to swear he is not a member of the communist party and that he will give up allegiance to any other country or organization.

It sounds it's high time to update that to include radicalism and extreme anti-Americanism. Perhaps she SHOULD be deported.

Weird then since she's praise marxism who was invented by a white male, Karl Marx. When we check various photos of Karl Marx, he looks like an angry white male, the same could apply to Lenin.

I would expect one that was born in one of the worst ****hole countries on the planet , and now as an adult sits on a seat in Congress in one of the best countries in the world would at least show a little gratitude. Sure , there are challenges here, but any challenge here is a cake walk compared to Somalia. Maybe go spend a year back there and come back to this country full of challenges and racism.


Not to mention, she was a teenager as the Gulf War was ending, and the first WTC attack. Muslims weren't all that welcomed , only to become worse after 9/11.


She basically won the lottery , and then criticizes it. She has the freedom to do so, and the right to try and make changes, but it just looks bad.


It's like me complaining about my job. I make just under six figures, have no degree, and get to work from home twice a week, but I am a contractor. This means I don't get health care or paid time off. If I'm not working I don't get paid. So, would it look good for me to criticize these things ? The way I see it , it is a great gig, and if I don't like it, I can look for another job.

In her defense she has been radicalized by Minneapolis Liberals and the Minnesota public schools.

The America we arrived in was different from the one my grandfather had hoped to find. The land of opportunity he imagined in 1992 was in fact full of challenges. People identified me in ways that were foreign to me: immigrant, black. I learned that these identities carried stigmas, and I experienced prejudice as a visibly Muslim woman.

Omar never expresses gratitude toward the United States. She acknowledges that “our Constitution and democratic institutions are the tools to make it better,” but the country and its people, as they are, are simply not good enough.

In so doing, Omar proves Trump’s criticism of her and the so-called far-left “Squad” correct. She does not like the United States of America; she is willing to lie about it; and she refuses to check her ugly prejudices at the door.
I think what she is expressing is the very opposite of prejudice. That word means to PRE-JUDGE. Her early judgements were not born out by her experience.

I agree with her that trying to change what you love is not "trashing". It is loving.

She also repeats a number of false claims about the United States policies, decrying “the caging of immigrant children at the border or the banning of Muslim immigrants or the allowing of segregation in public housing.”
Well, we Are caging immigrant children at the border and banning Muslim immigrants (or trying to).

Omar repeats a set of familiar — and discredited — attacks on Trump. The most egregious of these is her claim that Trump “tacitly accepted” the white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, who chanted “Jews will not replace us” at a rally in August 2017.

In fact, Trump explicitly condemned them, several times, doing so “in the strongest possible terms” (Aug. 12, 2017), calling them “repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans” (Aug. 14), and saying they should be “condemned totally” (Aug. 15).
Don't like it here, "representative" Omar.... there's the door. Don't let it hit you where the Lord split you.
