As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Ilhan Omar Said America Founded by “genocide”

I wonder what the Democratic leadership and the 2020 candidates think of this?

From the Washington Examiner:

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., wrote in 2017 that America was founded by genocide and our foreign policy smacks of “neocolonialism.”

“We must confront that our nation was founded by genocide and we maintain global power through neocolonialism,” Omar said in a tweet linking a Time article titled “ Unity Will Take Generations” she wrote about the August 2017 white supremacist rally Charlottesville, Va. 

Omar elaborated on her comment more in the article.

“We must confront that our nation was founded by the genocide of indigenous people and on the backs of slaves, that we maintain global power with the tenor of neocolonialism,” she said.

  1. The response: And…what do you want to do about that now?
    There’s no point in arguing with people who have such a negative view of the greatest national experiment in history.
    She, and others like her, are free to move to any country they believe is pure of thought and deed.
    Actually, I wish they would go somewhere else.

  2. Then just leave!
    “Our country”?
    She left her hell hole to come here.
    GFY Omar.
    Apologies folks, I have no kind words for an anti-semitic.
    None

    • It disgusts me that she calls America “my country”. As for her claim that America was founded by genocide, she should add up all the dead bodies caused by muslims over the past 1400 years. Talk about the pot calling out the kettle!

  3. She can go back to Somalia with her family and friends if she finds America’s history so distasteful.

    Bet that won’t happen. She likes being an American woman.

  4. Make the Democrats own her. I’m in this mood because of scorn; I’m in a mood for total war.

    We need to be asking every last one of their candidates, whether or not they will disown those reprehensible remarks, and never let them welsh on the question.

    To the darkened skies once more, and ever onward…

  5. I take great offense that she is telling me about the history in my country. I will stop my comments because I can say nothing positive about omar

  6. And what was Somalia founded on? Anarchy and genocide – which continue to the present day.

    Ah well, “some people did something” is not as bad as the founding of the country she came too as a refugee by marrying her brother. (Which is allowed under Islam)

    If a brother and sister marry they are “cast out” of the family. Which is why she and her brother came here. In addition to escaping their s***hole country.
