The Daily Ilhan

Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, in a newly resurfaced clip of an old interview, joked about people saying "Al Qaeda" and "Hezbollah" in a severe tone -- while noting nobody says words like "America" that way.

“When I was in college, I took a terrorism class. ... The thing that was interesting in the class was every time the professor said ‘Al Qaeda’ his shoulders went up,” Omar said during an interview from 2013 when she was an activist within the Somali community, chuckling as she imitated the professor saying "Al Qaeda" and "Hezbollah."


Omar went on to contrast the way people say the names of terror groups with how they pronounce the names of western powers:

“But you know, it is that you don’t say ‘America’ with an intensity, you don’t say ‘England’ with the intensity. You don’t say ‘the army’ with the intensity,” she continued. “... But you say these names [Al Qaeda] because you want that word to carry weight. You want it to be something.”

During the same 2013 interview, Omar described acts of terrorism as a reaction to “our involvement in other people’s affairs” following the brutal al-Shabab attack on a Kenyan shopping mall in 2013 that killed nearly 70 people and wounded 200.

“When are we gonna decide or realize that terrorism is a reaction? It’s an ideology, it’s a means of things, it’s not an entity, it’s not a place, people. It’s a reaction to a situation,” the show host Ahmed Tharwat asked Omar.

“Yes,” she agreed. “What you’re insinuating is what nobody wants to face. Nobody wants to face how the actions of the other people that are involved in the world have contributed to the rise of the radicalization and the rise of terrorist acts.”

She continued: “For us, it’s always ‘I must have not done anything. Why is it happening to me?’ Nobody wants to take accountability of how these are byproducts of the actions of our involvement in other people’s affairs.”

    What’s it like to permanently live in 2004 where liberals are undermining America by secretly supporting the terrorists?

    What Derek just said. A good chunk of the left hates America right there with her. Obviously the electorate in Minnesota does. They knew what she was, and elected her anyway. Nothing good comes from Minnesota. Except Prince.

    2004? Liberals have been hating on America for years and they didn't start or stop doing so in 2004.

    Can we please import more of these fine people into this country? Lets make sure we don't expect them to assimilate and lets make sure that our institutions of public education push a message to them about what a shitty, racist and murderous country this really is.

    This is accurate.

    Progressives seem to have a chinstinctive revulsion to the familiar, a certain homophobia of their own. Transexuals are celebrated simply because they are different, for example. This is most evident with progressive relationship to the Middle East and Islam. Their values couldn't be more different. However, Middle Eastern countries are opposed to the United States and thus are adopted as allies of the progressives, closer held by progressives the more virulent opposed to the US those countries are. By extension, Muslims are upheld by progressives because they believe Islamic values most challenge mainstream American values. Other than perhaps Islam's economic teachings, it's hard to see ideological comity between the two value sets.
    They mostly just hate white people

    Don't dismiss the Muslim and the left both share a hatred of Western Civilization. There's also the reflexive need of leftists to side with the swarthy foreigners or the white westerners. The fact that Muslims hate gays, treat women like property, and are religious fanatics, when the left supposedly hates people who espouse any of these beliefs if they are Christians is something that is an objection that easily overcome if the Muslims shares the typical leftists hatred of America and the Jews.

    One of the dumbest ideas the left has is that America created terrorism and it's just the response.

    Muslims have been fighting the infidels since the beginning of islam

    The Western Civilization line is so funny because what is American culture but a sterile suburban strip mall lined by decadent fast food joints. That’s the civilization you want to defend? What’s your favorite Opera Bob?
