Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota doesn’t like the United States very much.
Being an African woman, she can’t help but lament the conditions in a country which saved her family from a lawless Somali society.
The only logical path forward is to fundamentally change America.
In a video released Sunday, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) addressed ongoing riots in the United States as an “uprising over centuries of racial neglect and oppression.”
“As we speak, we are in the midst of an ongoing uprising over centuries of racial neglect and oppression… We can’t talk about the protests in Minneapolis or Kenosha … without first looking inward,” she said.
Omar went on to suggest the United States has a “system” that locks millions in poverty and fails to supply basic necessities like food, shelter, and medicine.
“We need to fundamentally change the way our society treats its most vulnerable because this has gone [on] long enough,” she said.”
Irony abounds, as a woman who funnelled hundreds of thousands of her campaign donations to her husband's consulting firm, is the spokesperson against corruption and oppression.
From The NYPost:
WASHINGTON — Rep. Ilhan Omar has continued quietly funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars to her new husband’s consulting film, including a $189,000 windfall in March — just weeks after they announced they had tied the knot, campaign data shows.
The payments between the Minneapolis Democratic congresswoman and Tim Mynett prompted at least one ethics complaint in 2019 after The Post first revealed allegations — made by Mynett’s then-wife in her divorce filing — that Omar was having an affair with the member of her political consulting team, who was at the time married to another woman. Omar was married to her second husband at the time.
But that doesn’t appear to have stopped the now-married couple, with Mynett’s E Street Group collecting $292,814.99 from his wife’s campaign this year for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and research services, according to the Federal Election Commission filings.
In total, Mynett has received a whopping $878,930.65 from Omar’s campaign since he began working for her in 2018, raising eyebrows among watchdogs and political law experts who say the practice is rife with cronyism.
The majority of those payments were made after the Somali-born lawmaker’s victory in the solidly Democratic district in the November 2018 midterm elections."
We live in an upside down world, when a refugee fleeing persecution from her home country is elected to the most powerful legislative body in the world and still considers it evil.
It's almost more laughable that her fans buy into her shameless hypocrisy.
