There is no doubt that Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is the absolute worst member of “the squad” and of Congress in general.
The vile woman has spewed so many anti-American lines over the course of the last several years, that even other Democrats have turned on her.
In her recent book, Omar had some rather interesting choice words in describing herself.
In fact, these words should scare all Americans, regardless of party affiliation.
In her book, “This is What America Looks Like,” Omar wrote: “I am, by nature, a starter of fires. My work has been to figure out where I’m going to burn down everything around me by adding the fuel of my religion, skin color, gender or even tone.”
Omar was recently interviewed by the New York Times where she was asked about these comments.
The New York Times asked Ilhan Omar about the book's language:
Few members of Congress have been as much of a political lightning rod during the storm-heavy Trump era as Ilhan Omar. The spotlight has at times been useful, as the 37-year-old Democratic congresswoman from Minnesota has become a prominent voice on issues like racial justice and police reform. But it has also resulted in disturbingly violent rhetoric from her opponents on the right. “I have — in one body — six or seven marginalized identities,” said Omar, who this year published an autobiography, “This Is What America Looks Like,” “and there’s an expectation from everyone on how those particular identities should behave.”
There’s a section of your book where — well, I’ll quote it directly: “I am, by nature, a starter of fires. My work has been to figure out where I’m going to burn down everything around me by adding the fuel of my religion, skin color, gender or even tone.” Couldn’t that kind of language be interpreted as a form of demagoguery? Why is it helpful to express yourself in those terms rather than, say, in terms of building things up? It’s metaphorical. There are many times when people will say, “Something you said has agitated this space.” And it’s like, no, it’s me just showing up that did it. There are times when I will choose to not show up, because I know that my presence brings about intensity that isn’t going to be helpful. There’s no one else that exists in a space where they have to deal with the hate of anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, anti-Blackness, but also with sexism. People will say it’s my “tone.” I’m like, you’re agitated by my tone because you think people like me should be sitting in a corner, not heard and not seen. Everything that comes out of my mouth is going to be filtered through the lens of you despising my existence. That’s the metaphorical adding-of-fire. That was a thing in the primary campaign: Ilhan is divisive. My being given the mic to say anything is angering, regardless of what the hell I say. I could say, “Good morning,” and they’re already angry.
Even Democrats are starting to distance themselves from Omar.
They see how vile she is, and see her as a liability.
Count Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson among the Democrats who are distancing themselves from Omar.
The Washington Examiner has Peterson's comments:
Rep. Ilhan Omar is being criticized by a fellow Minnesota Democrat who says she “doesn’t belong in our party.”
“I don’t defend her. She doesn’t belong in our party,” Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson, who represents Minnesota’s 7th Congressional District, said when asked about Omar, who represents Minnesota’s 5th District.
“She doesn’t belong in our party,” Peterson, who is running for reelection in rural western Minnesota, repeated when asked to clarify before walking away without further comment.
Peterson’s comments appear to represent a change of heart since April, when he attempted to defend Omar’s controversial interpretation of the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something.”
Omar is clearly a danger to the American way of life.
Let's hope the rest of the voters are seeing her for what she really is.
