In a recently resurfaced interview, radical leftist democrat and Somali immigrant Ilhan Omar suggested that Americans should be “more fearful of white men” than radical Islamic terror.
During an August 2018 interview with the Qatari Al Jazeera network, the extreme-left “Squad” member, when asked about her thoughts on the supposed increase in Islamophobia which came after terror attacks like the Manhattan bike path massacre which killed eight people, Omar had this to say: “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.”
“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,” the Somali migrant congresswoman continued.
Omar, along with other freshmen Democratic congresswomen with immigrant backgrounds — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib — have been in a continuous feud with President Trump after he tweeted earlier this month that they should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came.”
Omar was also the primary subject of the controversial “send her back” chants at one of Trump’s recent rallies.
Omar is certainly no stranger to controversy. In 2012, she took to Twitter, writing that “Israel has hypnotized the world.” She also created a political whirlwind when she proposed that pro-Israel Congress members support for the Jewish state was “All About the Benjamins,” an anti-Semitic trope that lawmakers are coaxed into supporting Israel through bribes.
And if that wasn’t enough, Omar also downplayed the attacks on the twin towers on September 11th, 2001, when she described the event as “some people did something.”
Trump has also called Omar out on this, saying “Omar minimized the Sept. 11 attacks on our homeland, saying ‘some people did something…Some people did something?’ Yeah, some people did something, alright. She pleaded for compassion for ISIS recruits attempting to join the terrorist organization. She was looking for compassion.”
