Ilhan Omar and the Diversity Conundrum

At a recent rally in Pennsylvania, President Donald Trump made some remarks about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) that the left-wing media found to be incredibly controversial but may not be so unpopular among the American public.

“She is telling us how to run our country. How did you do where you came from? How is your country doing?” 

Omar responded with a tweet that may be more truthful than she intended: “Firstly, this is my country & I am a member of the House that impeached you. Secondly, I fled civil war when I was 8. An 8-year-old doesn’t run a country even though you run our country like one.”

Her assertion that “this is my country” is certainly borne out by the facts. We are experiencing an injection of Somalian culture all across America, and it has certainly made our largest towns very vibrant. The beautiful ambiance of the smoldering buildings are giving our cityscapes that signature Mogadishu touch. The “mostly peaceful” protests of this summer are the underpinnings of our new multicultural democracy. They cannot be questioned, or serious reprisal may be in order from the mob.

Omar has enthusiastically supported the Black Lives Matter terror uprising since its inception, and it is not a coincidence that the revolution began in the heart of her district in Minneapolis. She has been remarkably forthright about her agenda to rip apart the Bill of Rights and Constitution, even to the point of justifying aggression and violence to achieve these goals.

To play devil’s advocate, Omar cannot really be blamed for having these opinions. She, like all of us, is a product of her culture. To someone of Omar’s upbringing and background, law and order is “police brutality,” free market capitalism is “austerity economics,” and changing “the way our society treats its most vulnerable” means looting the white majority on the road to socialist destitution and misery.

Omar’s past is prologue to her anti-American radicalism. She is believed to have married her brother in an immigration fraud scheme to unlawfully gain her citizenship. Despite a mountain of evidence, she will never be seriously investigated or held culpable for her behavior. It has also been alleged that Omar has ties to Somali warlords who helped turn the country into a failed state with their vicious rule. Ilhan’s father, Nur Said Elmi Mohamed, reportedly was the propaganda minister for the Barre Regime and his family was forced to flee Somalia in an attempt to avoid culpability for their crimes during the nation’s civil war.

It should come as no surprise then, understanding Omar’s history, that she has ties to an ethnic ballot-harvesting scheme implementing third-world thuggery to assure Democrat political victories. James O’Keefe of Project Veritas demonstrated the remarkable corruption of the Somali community of Minneapolis through a sting operation and a series of damning videos. Allegations include ballots being seized from the elderly, cash payouts for ballots, and other illicit schemes that make a mockery of electoral integrity.

Considering these developments, is President Trump really that off-base for suggesting that Omar’s values are incongruent with American traditions?

Even though he can be overly blunt and insensitive, Trump threatens the status quo because he utters sentiments that resonate with the unwashed masses but are never supposed to be uttered in polite society. The idol of diversity can never be questioned. Even if you disagree with Omar’s policies, her heritage is supposed to be strictly off limits, even where relevant. Americans must not question whether or not importing Somalis or other third-world migrants into their country is an effective public policy. It is sacrilege to even entertain these notions.

Trump is one of the few who has the audacity to disseminate these messages, and it is why he resonates with the public like no Republican of our generation. He speaks the truth in a manner that one would expect to hear from an ornery uncle at Thanksgiving dinner after a few stiff Manhattans. It is only through bold truth telling, like Trump’s, that America can change course from the status quo that has the nation rotting from the inside out. 

It is taken for granted that diversity is a strength, a multicultural society can maintain itself, and immigration fuels the American dream. If society cannot even broach these shibboleths, then modern America is built on a foundation of sand, and internecine strife will only hasten in the years to come.

  1. We never should have allowed mass Third World immigration after 1965. Once the scale of the invasion was well enough known (I knew about it by roughly the mid-70s, being at Ground Zero, CA), all GOP efforts should have gone to terminating it. Instead, the GOP sold its soul to the corporate cheap labor, “immigrants can bust the unions” lobby. We have increased the nonwhite portion of the US population by more than 80 million (the black population has TRIPLED since 1950, mostly due to white taxpayer provided welfare) . These PoCs vote better than 3-1 Democrat over GOP. That has been the Democrats’ secret weapon – why the GOP always struggles, despite how for most of us Republicans it seems like the GOP’s commonsense compared to Democrat insanity should make elections a cakewalk.

    Trump has done NOTHING to halt legal immigration, despite the overwhelming arguments against it. He has barely deported any of the 36 million illegal aliens, either. Why are our choices so bad? Why are whites so intent on committing racio-civilization suicide? Why won’t whites stand up for their race and civilization, or at least their children’s future? I don’t know, having always been prowhite and pro-America. But either whites awaken racially, or we will go extinct. Race and policing are now the only real issues (along with the exploding National Debt).

  2. Ilhan Omar represents perfectly what many immigrants have done and do to America. She also provides insight into the cowardice, ignorance, and corruption of our politicians, none of whom (regardless of party afiliation) question her legitimacy or condemn her. She may have papers – dogs have papers – but as another contributor wrote, she is merely a counterfeit citizen. Hopefully she won’t occupy that position for long.

    • Don’t count on her leaving soon. As O’Keefe has shown she’ll cheat in numerous ways to get re-elected.

      And the DOJ won’t touch her for her immigration and vote crimes because they are afraid of being branded as racists.

      • So, that leaves us with another double standard and the continued erosion of confidence in the rule of law and the fundamental meaning of justice.
        That figures…

  3. Decisions are much simplified by the understanding that we exceptional Americans are all deplorable in every way, racists, xenophobes, heterphobes, homophobes, all!

  4. She will be in office for a long time but is probably even too corrupt for the Dems to ever rise any higher.

  5. “We are experiencing an injection of Somalian culture all across America, and it has certainly made our largest towns very vibrant.”

    Love that. So tactful yet so pointed.

    In the Project Veritas video, there is one Somali speaking up because he knows it’s wrong. Indeed, there are immigrants who respect our Constitutional and traditional system of governance. But how far do we travel down the road to ruin before we finally and honestly admit that there exists a line that must not be crossed, a line that distinguishes between those whose beliefs and actions contribute to the good of the country and those who hate it and want to tear it down – and violently, if necessary?

    I am waiting to see what will happen. Is there enough strength left in America to turn the tide, or will the relativistic post-modern worship of multiculturalism combined with hostile immigrant groups carry the day? We shall see.

  6. She should be executed for being a terrorist-supporting, anti-American piece of scum. Somali “refugees” (aka war criminals) need to be sent back.

  7. She merely dances to the tune of the tribe, who OWN the Democrat party and yearn for the “good old days” of their Messiahs – Lenin and Stalin. They intend to destroy national sovereignty and wipe Western culture off the face of the earth to get their One World Government “utopia”. BAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. She openly called for the destruction of America and our government by whatever means, including violence. When did such actions cease to be treason ? She should be held accountable and the full weight of the DOJ should be brought to bear in her prosecution. She is not alone in calling for the destruction of our way of life, so has AOC and Rashida Tlaib. These ” representatives ” took and oath to defend the constitution of the United States and yet they regularly call for its’ overthrow. Why is nothing done ?? ARe Americans to no longer expect the support of our government against those who seek it’s destruction ?? I am appalled that nothing is being done and so are millions of others.

  9. “Even though he can be overly blunt and insensitive, Trump threatens the status quo because he utters sentiments that resonate with the unwashed masses”. I for one, voted for Trump (and will again) because he is “overly blunt”. We sent Trump to Washington to break things. He’s doing that. Dont call us the “unwashed masses”. We are the citizens who will save your elitist ass from these godless heathens.

  10. If we were prudent and just, we would begin chain deportation for this criminal and her entire family. Massive forced “diversity” was a clever piece in the overall plan to destroy the United States of America. If you look at the destruction of a state such as California, it started with mass immigration. Perhaps if the immigration was done gradually and naturally, it wouldn’t have a devastating effect. Our immigration system was set up deliberately to overwhelm our burgeoning welfare system, and it was assisted along by activist judges, and a media that made it a crime to question diversity. How else do you flip a red state and make it blue fast and irreversibly? Now, as anyone with a lick of common sense could have predicted, these states are bankrupt and are serving as ground zero for this Marxist revolution. This is how it’s done.
