Muslim lawmaker Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (Socialist-Democrat, NY) were featured with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and freshman Congresswoman Jahana Hayes (D-CT) on the most recent cover of Rolling Stone magazine. The Rolling Stone article attempts to bolster the false narrative that the Democrat Party, who are fighting to kill full-term babies, and allow them to die when they are born alive after a botched abortion, are somehow the “party of women.”
The article is filled with fluff and praise for the Democrat women who all fall into one or more victim category, but it’s the interview with freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who’s able to check off multiple victim categories, that is quite revealing.
The Rolling Stone article by Tessa Stuart begins by addressing Omar’s hijab and why she wears it. Omar admits that she didn’t always wear her hijab; it wasn’t until after the horrible attack on America by Islamic extremists on 9-11, that she chose to wear her hijab to make a statement.
From the article:
As a teen in Minnesota, Ilhan Omar didn’t wear a hijab often. “I, regretfully, was one of the folks who would only wear it the days I didn’t have the time or energy to fix my hair,” says Omar, who arrived in the U.S. in 1995 as a refugee of the Somali civil war. Her attitude evolved after September 11th: “I knew we had a responsibility to help shape a narrative about our faith that is positive.”
Omar admits that she didn’t wear the hijab because of her faith, but wore it after 9-11 as a way to defend her faith? Since Omar was elected as a State Representative in Minnesota, she’s done very little to elevate her faith or to show any signs of positivity. She’s been accused of marrying her own brother to help him commit immigration fraud. She’s also been accused of a number of campaign finance violations. Only weeks into her new role as a U.S. lawmaker, Omar falsely accused sitting U.S. Senator, Lindsey Graham (R-SC) of “being compromised” (many believed this was a veiled threat, as she wanted others to believe that someone had the ‘goods’ on Graham, forcing him to admit he was gay). More than one anti-Semitic tweet showed up on her personal account. Omar’s defense was that she was confused about why the tweets were offensive to Jews?
To date, Omar shows no signs of helping to shape a positive image of either herself or her faith.
From the Rolling Stone article:
This year, she became the first woman sworn in to Congress in a headscarf, after negotiating the end to a 181-year-old edict that representatives must “remain uncovered” while on the House floor. Lifting the ban caused an outcry from some conservatives, but, as an unapologetic progressive, Omar is getting used to that.
For now, though, she’s trying to stay focused on the agenda she came to Washington to advance, and on advocating for people like herself —
It’s worth noting that when Ilhan Omar lists who she’s advocating for in Washington D.C., she names herself first, then refugees, followed by immigrants, Muslims, women and then finally, the people who elected her, Minnesotans. It’s likely no accident that Omar puts Minnesota residents dead last—after all, they’re not part of a victim category.
During her interview with Rolling Stone, Omar revealed a stunning account of her first impression of America, after leaving the hell-hole of war-torn Somalia:
You came to the U.S. when you were 12. What were your first impressions?
We had a layover in New York. I remember seeing homeless people and panhandlers on the streets. There was trash everywhere, and graffiti. I remember turning to my dad and saying, “This doesn’t look like the America you promised.” He said, “Girl, you ask too many questions. We’re gonna get to our America.”
Was the “our America” Omar’s father referred to, the Cedar-Riverside area of Minneapolis, Minnesota, otherwise known as “little Mogadishu?”
According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Ilhan Omar’s hometown of Cedar-Riverside is has taken on its own, separate identity from Minneapolis – Separated from the rest of Minneapolis by the Mississippi River and two freeways, the neighborhood operates like a self-sustaining village. “That’s allowed it to develop on its own and retain its character,” said Michael Tolan, of the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota.
Fox News reports – More men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined – or attempted to join – a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country. With by far the largest Somali American population in the United States – estimates of up to 100,000 – the insular ethnic community in Minnesota offers a rich recruiting ground.
As a point of reference, here’s an image from the Somali Civil War Ilhan Omar and her father were rescued from, before they landed in New York City, where Omar was stunned by the “trash” and “homeless” people on the streets of America. It seems like an odd comment to make considering there were no tanks with rogue, rag-tag rebels armed to the hilt, ravaging the city of New York, terrorizing its citizens.
It should also be noted, that in 1995 when Omar and her father arrived in America from the war-torn sh*thole of Somali, Rudy Giuliani was in his first year as the acting mayor of New York City, where he later gained the reputation for cleaning up the homelessness crisis.
Near the end of the Rolling Stone article, Omar is asked about impeaching President Trump, something that appears to be high on the lawmaker’s list of to-do’s.
You might be asked to vote on impeachment at some point. What are your thoughts about that possibility?
I believe that impeachment is inevitable. It also is a terrifying notion. Pence is an ideologue, and the ideology he holds is more terrifying to me and my constituents. And we have not had a full impeachment that removes the president from office. Nations struggle any time [they] overthrow a dictator, and Trump really has the markings of a dictator.
Daily Caller’s Ryan Saavedra points out that Omar’s comments make her guilty of the crime of “Advocating the overthrow of the Government.” Saavedra points out that Omar’s remarks to Rolling Stone magazine, where she appears to be suggesting overthrowing our President, make her guilty of a crime punishable of a fine, or 20 years in prison, or both. He also points out that should she be found guilty that Omar would not be able to be employed by the United States government or any agency thereof for five years following her conviction.
Calling Attorney General William Barr…???
18 U.S. Code § 2385. Advocating overthrow of Government:
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the 5 years next following his conviction https://t.co/SV7H5Mx3Fc

We contend that Omar is guilty of also guilty of rebellion and insurrection against our sitting President.
§2383. Rebellion or insurrection
Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
So there you have it—U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar, the woman the media and the Democrat Party would like you to believe embodies the American dream. Minnesota residents need to wake up and realize who they just appointed to one of the highest positions in our federal government. They’ll get a shot in 2020 to replace her, but will Omar be removed from office before then? Will Attorney General Barr take her threats seriously? Will Republicans in Congress and the voters in Minnesota start taking this woman seriously, or will they wait until it’s too late?
