Ilhan Omar (if that is her real name, as recent allegations claim that she may not actually be a member of the Omar family) – the anti-Israel Muslim House representative originally from Somalia – has repeatedly demonstrated terrorist sympathies over the years.
She dismissed 9/11 as “some people did something” that implicated her fellow Muslims.
She went on to say that, “we should be profiling, monitoring and creating policies to fight the radicalization of white men.”
Watch the video of the 2018 interview with Omar here (she makes the crazy statement at 6:08.)
Recently, Ilhan Omar also fired back at an audience member who asked her to make a statement on the practice of female genital mutilation (surprise, surprise, she didn't...instead she went off about how "Islamophobic" it is to ask Muslims such "horrible questions!"
What do you think of this?
Does Omar want the "best of both worlds" when it comes to getting the benefits (freedom, liberty, protection of the law) that comes with being an American without having to honor those very same American values?

Fox News shared this about the interview where Omar implied that white male Americans are more dangerous that Muslim terrorists:
n a resurfaced interview from 2018, anti-Trump Democrat Ilhan Omar responded to a question about the "quote-unquote legitimate fears" some people have of "jihadist terrorism," by saying Americans should be "more fearful of white men."
In the interview, Al Jazeera host Medhi Hasan said some Americans feel justified in fearing Islam, not out of hate but for their own safety, before listing a number of radical Islamic terror attacks. Omar dismissed this suggestion immediately and laid the blame on white males instead, calling for the profiling and monitoring of caucasian men.
"I would say our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country," she replied.
"And so if fear was the driving force of policies to keep America safe -- Americans safe inside of this country -- we should be profiling, monitoring, and creating policies to fight the radicalization of white men."
This isn't the first time Omar has been criticized for making controversial statements with regard to Islam.
She has been publicly challenged on quotes about Al Queda and the 9/11 terror attacks, most specifically when she appeared at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser earlier this year and described the carnage from September 11th as, "some people did something."
"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," she said.
Townhall had some great insights on Omar's desire to "be treated like other politicans" while still pushing anti-American pro-Islamist rhetoric:
With Omar, she brings all of the criticisms she just denounced upon herself. She supports the viciously anti-Israel Boycott, Disinvestment, and Sanctions movement, whose co-founder wants to destroy Israel. She has made odd remarks about al-Qaeda. She has refused to denounce left-wing violence, like the Antifa activist who recently attacked an ICE facility. She has peddled anti-Semitic tropes. She has tried to play this horrific game of moral equivalency concerning our intervention in Somalia; she appears to side with the militiaswho were killing our troops there. The Huffington Post said she “shut down” calls for Muslims to denounce things…that should be denounced. Well, anytime a liberal publication writes that it’s usually the opposite. Sorry, when you cannot condemn the terrorists who executed the 9/11 attacks and trivialize them as an event where “some people did something,” you deserve to be taken to the woodshed. Why can’t you condemn them? It’s not that hard. Radical Islamic terrorists murdered Americans. Not hard, Omar. All of the pressure brought on you is because of your actions. Period. So, quit complaining. Stop being stupid and denounce politically motivated violence, terrorism, and anti-Semitism—which everyone has pretty much already done in when asked, but you. And speaking in generalities, these are things that everyone can easily denounce when asked, except if you’re a Democrat.
Sorry Omar, you can't have your cake and eat it, too!
