Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota doesn’t seem to like America or Americans very much. She would deny this, yet it keeps coming up in various interviews, media moments and soundbites.
In the latest example, Omar was talking about refugee resettlement during a podcast interview, and trashed her fellow Americans as ignorant.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Ilhan Omar on Trump Voters: ‘Ignorance Really Is Pervasive in Many Parts of This Country’
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) on Tuesday castigated supporters of President Donald Trump by claiming America’s problem with ignorance is “pervasive.”
Omar appeared on the Nation’s “Next Left” podcast with host John Nichols to discuss various issues, including the intelligence of Trump supporters.
“So suddenly you’re elected, and you had this teaching moment. It strikes me that, in watching you, you are conscious of teaching moments and of that opportunity to say something that might cause people to think differently about what’s going on,” Nichols said.
Omar said U.S. voters “have a misconception” about refugees and the process they face getting into the United States. She went on to specifically target Republicans in her criticism, saying they “are really good at misinformation and sort of really reorganizing facts to sort of paint a picture that really eventually is not rooted in facts.”…
“And so it is not that they might not be knowledgeable about this, but they use it as a tool to stir up hate and division. And ignorance really is pervasive in many parts of this country. And as someone who was raised by educators, I really like to inform people about things that they might be ignorant to, willingly or unwillingly,” Omar continued.

Amazing. Some people are getting tired of Omar’s America bashing and anti-Semitism. A protest against her recently took place in New York.
The Jerusalem Post reports:
HUNDREDS OF JEWS GATHER IN TIMES SQUARE TO PROTEST ILHAN OMAR
Protesters gathered in New York City’s Times Square late Monday to call for the removal of freshman Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Following the highly-publicized allegations of the Minnesotan congresswoman’s antisemitism and her statement downplaying the 9/11 terrorist attacks, New York native and activist Joe Diamond organized a rally and billboard launch calling for her removal. She is one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to the US legislature.
“In my lifetime, I cannot think of any other politician who presents a bigger threat to the alliance between the US and Israel and to America’s Jews,” Diamond told The Jerusalem Post ahead of Monday’s protest. “This woman is an ardent antisemite, and she doesn’t even try to hide it.”
Will the people of Minnesota vote her out in the next election?
