A 2015 speech given by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to the Revolution Somali Youth League shows Omar referring to Somalia as “our nation back home.”
“You guys have the ability to impact where our nation is headed,” said Omar, before adding, “Not only here – in the United States – but even in our nation back home.” [Emphasis added]
The Revolution Somali Youth League is a group whose “mission is to create a better future for all Somalis by revitalizing the great nation we call Somalia,” according to its Facebook page.
“We aspire to galvanize all Somali youth around the world to recommit themselves to the challenges of nation building,” the group’s description continues.
This week, we’re supposed to be outraged that President Trump directed certain congresswomen, Omar included, to “go back” to their home nations and rebuild them before criticizing the United States. In response, Omar swore up and down that America is her home nation, and that she has no other allegiances.
“As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States,” she said on Twitter. “Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen.”
The 2015 video suggests otherwise, as does the fact that she did not follow American customs when she married her brother (at the same time she was already married). This site reported:
During last year’s mid-term elections, journalist Laura Loomer was ahead of the curve to say the least when it came to Ilhan Omar. She famously crashed several events with Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, highlighting their ties to dangerous Islamic terrorist organizations and known anti-Semites.
Aside from Omar’s documented associations with some of the most virulently anti-American jihadi groups within the United States, including CAIR and Islamic Relief, issues surrounding Omar’s immigration status and marriage history played a key role in Loomer’s dogged coverage of the Somali immigrants bid for Congress.
Loomer was the first to report on a national scale that Omar had illegally used campaign funds to contract legal services for a divorce from her brother (immigration fraud), while Omar still gave conflicting tax statements to the IRS for over half a decade. Loomer was lambasted as “anti-Muslim” and “Islamophobic” for reporting on these findings, ridiculed from people on both sides of the political aisle. Omar called the revelations “false” and her allies continued to excoriate Loomer’s findings without providing any documentation to contradict the evidence she provided.
In August 2018, when Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib were still candidates, Loomer was on the ground in Minnesota investigating the two jihadi candidates and their nefarious activities.
At a joint campaign event in August 2018, Loomer confronted Omar and Tlaib on video about their jew hatred, ties to terrorist organizations, their affiliation with CAIR, their refusal to condemn HAMAS, Omar’s fraudulent marriage to her brother, and Omar’s use of her campaign funds to pay her divorce attorney.
During this same event, Tlaib physically assaulted Loomer, who is Jewish, and tried to steal her phone. A police report was filed and charges were pressed against Tliab, who had a history of making incendiary remarks about Jewish people.
10 months later, and the media is finally now playing catchup after they demonized Loomer and called for her to be banned following her reports on Ilhan Omar.
Two weeks after Omar was elected to Congress, Loomer was permanently banned on Twitter for a tweet in which she called Omar “anti-Jewish”, a statement agreed upon by members of both political parties.
Fast-forward to the summer of 2019 and Fox News, along with several other mainstream media outlets, is now reporting on the immigration and tax fraud issues related to Ilhan Omar, as Minnesota campaign finance officials have announced that she violated multiple campaign finance violations. Credit is supposed to be given where credit is due right?
