A Minnesota Congresswoman fired back at Tucker Carlson Tuesday night after he aired a segment bashing her for calling America “racist,” “cruel,” and “unjust,” despite the fact that America took her in as a refugee from Somalia.
Who: Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is engaged in a war of words with Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
What: “Not gonna lie, it’s kinda fun watching a racist fool like this weeping about my presence in Congress,” Omar Tweeted.
Carlson ran a segment criticizing the congresswoman for her disdain for America, the country that has given her everything.
“Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country,” Carlson said. “A system designed to strengthen America is instead undermining it. Some of the very people we try hardest to help have come to hate us passionately. Maybe that’s our fault for asking too little of our immigrants. We aren’t self-confident enough to make them assimilate, so they never feel fully American.”
Where: Omar made her comments on Twitter.
When: Tuesday night.
Why It Matters: The Somali-American congresswoman represents the worst of today’s political left.
As The Rundown reported Tuesday:
Omar is a Somali refugee who won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. She is outspoken about America’s flaws, like most of today’s political left, but ungrateful for its kindness, which perhaps saved her life. She has described America as racist, cruel, and unjust. That sentiment began during the Obama administration, who held a fundamental view that America was an evil place and needed to be saved from itself. It is a pervasive ideology, and one that that taken hold of the Democratic Party.
