Congress Woman Rep. Ilhan Omar claimed Saturday that she “probably” loves America more than people born in the United States of America.
Ilhan Omar made the comments at the progressive Netroots Nation conference in Philadelphia when sge was asked why she often appears to be an opponent of American values, according to the Washington Examiner.
She replied and said, “There is something I get criticized for all the time,” “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. “
Rep Omar, who is usually accused of using anti-Semitic language because of her constant criticism of Israel, has claimed that the United States likes to talk about “American exceptionalism” abroad but it does not fulfill those values at home.
She said, “So, that hypocrisy is one that I’m bothered by. I want America the great to be America the great.”
“Today gives us all a chance to reflect on how far we have come as a country and how much further we have to go to achieve full equality for all people,” Omar tweeted July 4. “We are at a tipping point for progress right now.”
Few Days earlier Ilhan Omar was jubilant about Somalia’s Independence Day.
Rep. Omar was a refugee from the war-torn country of Somalia and arrived in the United States with her family at the age of 12.
Ilhan Omar’s recent comments on Saturday came after a highly-publicized and heated spat between her and Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has said the congresswoman hates America.
Tucker carlson said “Omar isn’t disappointed in America. She’s enraged by it,” “Virtually every public statement she makes accuses Americans of bigotry and racism. This is an immoral country, she says. She has undisguised contempt for the United States and for its people.” And Congress woman Ilhan Omar called Turker Carlson a racist for saying this!.
