During last weekend’s Southern California fundraising circuit, freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar incited American Muslims to “raise hell.” Speaking at the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) banquet, Omar made yet another series of provocative statements unbecoming of someone who claims to want solidarity and peace. Listen below:
Omar also spoke about American Muslims living with the “discomfort of being second-class citizens.”
Ironically, Omar was born in Somalia. She escaped the war-torn country and was granted asylum in the United States, where every opportunity was afforded her to be able to rise to become a member of Congress.
However, these facts are immaterial to Islamists (whom Omar represents), who continually paint themselves as victims. For Islamists, the myth of victimhood is the fuel that drives the Islamist machine.
This weekend, Omar used this victimhood propaganda to box American Muslims into the corner as some sort of second-class citizens.
Omar has been able to get away with making inflammatory statements (including anti-Semitic ones), while she and her allies deflect criticism under the shield of race, gender and creed. This is due to the fact that, as a society, we’ve become so tender and over-sensitized toward feeling like we’re “oppressing” minorities that we have come to silence ourselves despite the obvious and blatant lies being spread to further an unAmerican and unIslamic agenda.
It wasn’t enough that one of the greatest countries known for freedom of faith and individual excellence gave Omar refugee. Now, she seeks refuge behind being a Black woman, a Muslim woman and simply a woman. That is precisely why Omar has quickly become the champion of Islamist propaganda: She can keep changing her victimhood status to camouflage genuine historical narratives of trial and oppression in the American landscape — none of which she actually belongs to.
