Ilhan Omar came to the United States as a Somali refugee and became a member of U.S. Congress. That’s a pretty remarkable achievement.
So you’d think her fulfillment of the American Dream would have taught her that maybe there’s something to this whole American-exceptionalism thing. Alas, the only lesson Ilhan Omar seems to have learned is that America, like Israel, is no better than the likes of Hamas and the Taliban:
We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity.
We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.

Where are people supposed to go for justice?
Maybe give Somalia a try. Seemed to workout well the first time!

Where are people supposed to go for a U.S. Representative who doesn’t hate their country?
I noticed that the US and Israel are being compare to Hamas and Afghanistan here.

A sitting Congresswoman is lumping the United States and Israel into the same group as terrorist organizations.
Let me be clear: The Taliban and Hamas deliberately kill innocent civilians, the U.S. and Israel protect civilians. https://t.co/vHPkQwwtmQ

Ilhan Omar knows this, but as a genuine Hamas apologist, she’s not going to point that out. She threw Hamas in with the U.S. and Israel just to cling to some semblance of seriousness, but her words and actions have made it abundantly clear that she sides with Hamas in their quest to wipe Israel off the map.
The United States and Israel are far from perfect, but to lump them in with terrorist organizations is disingenuous, disgusting, and shameful.
Blinken shouldn’t have dignified her question with a response, unless that response was this one:
