Congresswoman Ilhan Omar posted a bizarre tweet “celebrating” the Fourth of July. Omar’s message was in line with most social justice messages that take every opportunity to criticize and tear down American values and culture.

Her tweet was a far cry from the celebratory Independence Day parade orchestrated by President Trump — a parade that reminded America what its people have worked so hard to build while restoring pride in the nation and it’s people.

Instead, Omar took another opportunity to attack the country that gave her refuge from war-torn Somalia. However, Omar had no problem celebrating Somali independence day by dancing in an uploaded video.

[Rough translation: “Somalis, wake up, wake up and support each other. Support your country. Support them forever” (from Somali’s previous national anthem) and “Long live Somalia!”]

The internet was not having it. Americans, who are fed up of always being criticized and told they’re not good enough, had some choice words for Ilhan Omar.
