Ilhan Omar said her number one job is to look out for Somalia instead of the U.S.
It was a clear violation of her oath of office, and calls immediately rang out for her to resign.
But squad member Ilhan Omar also got blasted from an unlikely source for her recent race-baiting speech.
Americans across the nation were shocked and disgusted by Congresswoman and Squad Member Ilhan Omar’s recent pro-Somalia speech.
A history of inflammatory statements
Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has a long history of giving inflammatory, anti-American speeches.
And her most recent talk, given in Somalia, was no different.
In fact, it was among her worst ever.
In her recent talk, she said her number one job is to look out for Somalia, not the U.S.
And the American people were rightly outraged.
Omar faced immediate backlash from all quarters across the U.S., and calls for her resignation, or removal from office, were swift and furious.
But Omar also received criticism from some surprising places as she said one day, Somalia will go after other territories to “unify all Somali-speaking people.”
Omar’s statements were so bad she actually was attacked by the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Republic of Somaliland, Ambassador Rhoda J Elmi.
Profoundly surprised and shocked
Elmi took to social media to blast Omar for her comments.
“We were profoundly surprised, even shocked on discovering the remarks made by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D) of Minnesota in a recent public forum, widely circulated on most social media platforms and attached below for your reference. The language she employed was regrettably unbecoming of both the office she holds and the constituents she represents.”
But Elmi went even further in her attack on Omar and her anti-American, pro-aggression comments.
“Her expressions were lacking in common decency and revealed a significant lack of understanding of basic facts. Specifically troubling, were her endeavors to revive the once-violent and dangerous ideology of Greater Somalia or Somali Weyn, which caused so much death, destruction, and conflict in the Horn of Africa.”
Elmi left no stone unturned in her response to Omar and correctly pointed out that Omar’s comments were both racist and pro-terrorist.
“Furthermore, her use of ethno-racist rhetoric didn’t escape attention and left many, with a deep sense of disappointment. This was particularly bewildering for those who recall similar racist attacks she endured not long ago, of being ”not American enough” and it was baffling to see her take a similar approach and accuse the entire #Somaliland nation of “falsely claiming Somali identity.”
Unbecoming of a member of Congress
Elmi went on, “Moreover, her ignorance of #US – #Somaliland cooperation in the fight against terror and piracy in the Gulf of Aden & Gulf Of Berbera was shocking to say the least. We hope the house leadership and her caucus will take note of her public conduct, unbecoming a United States Congresswoman nor representative of the august house she serves in.”
This latest violation of her oath of office has caused an increase in calls for her to be removed from office.
And Omar seems to realize just how bad things are for her.
She has recently been attempting to explain away her comments and even claims that the translation of her comments was incorrect.
But the fact that her own “people” attacked her for her disgusting rant shows that Congress must act and immediately remove her from the House.
