It looks like one member of the leftist “squad” is back to making trouble. Ilhan Omar, the U.S Rep. For Minnesota, criticized a group of Christians who were signing prayer songs during a flight on Easter Sunday.
Needless to say, this offended the Muslim congresswoman who tweeted with the video:
“I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I am on a plane,” adding “How do you think it will end?”
Interesting that a Christian holiday would offend Omar so much, when she is living in a Christian country.
Others were quick to rip the congresswoman about her comments and Republicans responded by suggesting that Omar was expressing nothing but hatred and/or bigotry against Christins and their faith.
Former Democrat Vernon Jones, who is running this year to represent Georgia in the U.S House of Representatives, asked Omar, “Why do you hate Christians, Ilhan?” and asked, “If the freedom of religion we enjoy here in America disturbs you, feel free to pack your bags and head back to Somalia, Sudan, or wherever you’re from. Take your brother with you.”
Jose Castillo, another Republican running for Congress in Florida’s 9th Congressional District, tweeted,
“In America, Muslims can & do pray in public,” adding, “If she wants a country where Christians aren’t allowed to do the same [Omar] should go back to her own country.”
Ilhan is a native of Somalia and is now a naturalized citizen of the United States, although her immigration has at times been questioned, as it is rumored that she married her brother, to get a U.S green card.
A contender for Omar’s 5th Congressional District in Minnesota, Cicely Davis, tweeted to her opponent:
“Qatar – a country you’re very familiar with – plays Islamic prayers on the intercom before takeoff on their planes, they have a designated prayer area & coordinates for Mecca are posted on the screens. It’s no problem. The issue is you hate Christians & Jews & lots of Muslims.”
Another candidate after Omar’s 5th District – Royce White, also let his competition know his opinion:
“I’m coming for your seat,” White said in his tweet, “Don’t disrespect Christianity! You’re a globalist fraud. You can’t pray in Pelosi’s office! The Democrats you serve don’t believe in God. Their platform is openly anti-God. Minneapolis will not become Mogadishu. We will not bend the knee.”
Omar has always been very arrogant during her time in the House. On the Twin Tower attacks of September 11, 2001, Omar said “Some people did something,” and has spread as much hate a vitriol as she possibly could, along with her airheaded colleagues, Ayanna Pressley and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The video in question, was reportedly shot by Jack Jensz Jr, who leads a group called Kingdom Realm Ministries, and has since been deleted.
Omar did not respond when asked for a statement by Fox News, instead retweeted a tweet from Deadspin sportswriter Chuck Modi, who was responding to the backlash Omar faced on social media:
“Ilhan Omar: Makes very valid point,” Modi wrote. “Right-wingers who hate Ilhan Omar: ‘You are ‘attacking Christianity’ because I am stupid or dishonest or just pandering to my bigoted base.’”
Except that’s not the problem, the problem is that Christianity has been under attack for a while now, and the people of America, are sick of it.
