Rep. Ilhan Omar’s just can’t keep her mouth shut. That’s probably not such a bad thing for American citizens. The more Omar talks, the more she exposes who she really is and what she had no business sitting on the House Foreign Affairs Committe.
Breitbart News reported on a bizarre event that took place today when Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) lambasted a female Muslim audience member or asking her to renounce female genital mutilation (FGM), a practice common in Omar’s native Somalia.
Omar was reportedly taking questions an event for the Muslim Collective for Equitable Democracy event when Muslim audience member Ani Osman-Zonneveld of Muslims for Progressive Values asked Omar to condemn FGM.
Omar said she was “disgusted” by people who ask Muslim politicians specific questions on issues and groups embraced by extreme members of their religion – such as FGM, al-Qaeda, and Hamas – and called it a “waste” of time.
“Your second question is an apalling question,” Omar said, before she went on a two minute rant in her attempt to embarrass the questioner, as she refused to actually answer the question.
Ilhan Omar is “appalled” & “disgusted” to be asked to condemn Al Qaeda & Hamas. She’s frustrated about people having “an assumption” about it.
Well, maybe there’s “an assumption” now because you haven’t condemned it…
and you still haven’t. lol. pic.twitter.com/TRrJ33m0qo

But as usual, Omar wasn’t exactly telling the truth. She’s more than happy to talk about issues related to Islamic extremists.
In 2013, when Omar was asked about Al Qaeda by a Muslim interviewer, she was happy to answer. In her response, she mocked Americans for being fearful of the terror group who claimed responsiblity for flying two passenger planes into the Twin Towers, crashing a United Airlines plane filled with passengers into a field in Pennsylvania, killing everyone onboard, and flying a plane into the Pentagon on 9-11-01.
“But you know, it is that you don’t say ‘America’ with an intensity, you don’t say ‘England’ with the intensity. You don’t say ‘the army’ with the intensity… But you say these names because you want that word to carry weight. You want it to be something.”

In April 2019, while speaking in front of a room filled with Muslims at a CAIR event, Omar brought up the terror attack on 9-11 by Muslim extremists, saying, “Some people did something,” when explaining how they killed almost 3,000 innocent people. In response to heinous and insensitve remarks, President Trump tweeted the video of Omar sharing her vile remark with images and video clips from the 9-11 attack, telling Omar, “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!”
