It irks me that so many Hispanic-Americans are more loyal to Mexico and Mexicans here illegally than their fellow Americans. It reeks of supremacy and racism.
Absolutely true! Many on the left of all colors think its weird that I am an assimilated Asian American who speaks English with a Southern accent, has an American first name, am a Christian and conservative and identify culturally as American. I've never been less than fully accepted by the Southern culture around me. Once I was traveling in the Northeast and someone actually asked me what it was like being originally from Louisiana and "being around those people". I just told him "I AM one of those people."

Nothing wrong with pride in your roots, but if being black or Mexican is more important to you than just being American then there's a problem.

You should educate yourself on the history of the Anti-Defamation League. This statement demonstrates your lack of knowledge about them.

It addressed both of these issues.

I don't know enough about the terrorist to comment on that part of this, but I often feel that there are some evangelical Christians who are caught between two worlds, have divided loyalties, and often have sympathies that go against our Constitution and yet they are not called out for being un-American. Why is this worse?

I know who the ADL is, and why they exist. BTW, I also lived in Israel for 3 years, as the ADL is a Jewish started org (far left) and supports Israel (Israelis themselves often have different opinions on the ADL).

It does not address, but glosses over the realities. It is a biased, tilted piece of propoganda at best. This I know for a fact. Your link is crap.

I think it’s a tough case because she was a teenager when she left and now has a baby and realized she made a huge mistake. I honestly don’t know the answer but it’s not a cut and dried case.

The ADL can kiss my butt. You should have them kiss your butt also.

When Omar was attacked in March for “invoking the anti-Semitic trope of ‘dual loyalty’” in her criticisms of AIPAC, The ADL was among the first to call on Congressional leaders to “take immediate action” against her.

Here we have Omar writing a letter to a judge pleading for leniency in the sentencing of a Somali Muslim terrorist from Minnesota who tried to join ISIS and fight against America in Syria!!!!

And she is making exucses about being caught between two worlds???? Maybe that's because she herself has divided loyalties, with many loyalties to Islam and Somalia and isn't totally assimilated into American culture by the way and sympathizes heavily with radical Islam. Same is true of Rashida Tlaib, and many of the Mexican Democrats making a scene in El Paso who maybe more loyal to the Mexican community than to the USA.
She is most welcome, dare I say, to go back to where she came from. Her anti-American attitudes have no place in this country.

Jeez, what a way to win people over. Call them all racist or subliminal racists or potential racists or whatever she exactly said.

you have to remember that the "squad" is a group of entitled idiots, and they think that teh louder they screech, the more attention they get, even if it is bad.

Only white people will vote against our own interests like this. Imagine black people voting for David Duke.

Minorities know at least to vote for their own interests. I bet all the Somalis in her district voted for her. But it's these goofy white progressives - usually students and highly educated ivory tower elitists that seem to love being slapped in the face.
A lot of the white liberal elites despise working class white people but they love poorly educated Muslim refugees like Omar and illegal immigrants.
