Flashback: Ilhan Omar reminds us the US was founded on genocide, or just some people doing something

We’re supposed to be feeling bad for poor Rep. Ilhan Omar today after the meanies at the New York Post took her entirely in-context quote about 9/11 and made it into a blistering cover that has the blue-state blue-checks in the media all upset.

There’s plenty of baggage in Omar’s past to put people on notice — that tweet of hers about Israel having “hypnotized the world” was really something — but The Daily Wire’s Jeremy Boreing found another entirely in-context quote from Omar from a TIME magazine article she published in 2017 and thought it could use another airing:

“Step out of your comfort zone, engage with your enemies and make them your friends. When we interact with those we fear and hate, we will find commonality.”

Looking forward to @IlhanMN stepping out of her comfort zone and finding commonality with the… you know who. https://t.co/39vD5ei42d

You know who? We have no idea who Boreing could be alluding to. None. Could it rhyme with “Jews” maybe?

Here’s the piece in which Omar urged people to engage with their “enemies”:

We must confront that our nation was founded by genocide and we maintain global power through neocolonialism. https://t.co/KAcXjqUw7u

Can you believe she left Somalia for this?

Our nation? What nation is she referring to?

— Stranapoetov.com (@Stranapoetov) April 11, 2019

She is talking about her country, Somalia.

Hey, she’s more American than any other American you can name.

If I hated my country as much as you seem to hate yours, I would leave.

How I long for the good old days in Somalia, things were never better, don't know why I ever left to come to this hell hole.

Our nation was founded by genocide? You could almost rephrase that as:

It was just some people doing something.

I scrolled five down, and realized this didn't age well

You are, and I can’t stress this enough, the worst.

Yeah, and that neo-colonialism and the Western Civ that it carried has brought modern infrastructure to billions of people, and raised billions from abject poverty in a VERY short time. So shut it.

Funny how many tens of thousands of migrants are showing up at America’s southern border every month and begging to be let in; guess no one told them how terrible it is here.

I think she likes her comfort zone….

— rocksolid (@rocksolid1968) April 11, 2019

Her comfort zone seems to consist of her two “sisters” in Congress who have her back no matter what comes out of her mouth.

Wow, how did we survive for 240 years before she came along to tell us what we're doing wrong? She needs to shut her pie hole.

Why , exactly, did you flee Somalia? And where do you get the nerve?

— slash (@v_anderson28) April 11, 2019

Someone needs to remind her she was living in a tent with a dirt floor before she came to this horrible country. Get her out of Congress

— C.H. Houlihan (@louis_houlihan) April 11, 2019

She will never bring unity only division

— lugnut (@pineviewranch) April 11, 2019

She has a bright future in Democratic politics then.
