During a panel discussion at the Netroots Nation Conference, Rep. Ilhan Omar defended her past anti-American comments by questioning the patriotism of natural-born Americans:
“It is that I am anti-American because I criticize the United States.”
I believe, as an immigrant, I probably love this country more than anyone that is naturally born and because I am ashamed of it continuing to live in its hypocrisy.”
“We export American exceptionalism, the great America, the land of liberty and justice. If you ask anybody walking on the side of the street somewhere in the middle of the world they will tell you, ‘America the great,’ but we don’t live those values here. That hypocrisy is one that I am bothered by. I want America the great to be America the great.”
Of course, there was no question asking what she means by “hypocrisy”. Omar just spews rhetoric against her adopted country with political grandstanding that’s sickening.
During the panel discussion at the Netroots Nation Conference, Rep. Ilhan Omar defended her past anti-Semitic comments and other controversial statements, saying “oh, I create my space.”
Huh? Once again, Omar isn’t confronted with a counter-question to her comments.
