Ilhan Omar: Hate For Me Is ‘Anti-Muslim, Anti-Immigrant, Anti-Black, Sexist’

(Breitbart) – Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) touted her intersectional oppression in a recent interview with the New York Times, lamenting that she constantly has to “deal with the hate of anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, anti-blackness, but also with sexism” in the United States.

Omar made the remark when asked about a controversial passage in her autobiographical book — This Is What America Looks Like: My Journey from Refugee to Congresswoman — in which she wrote: “I am, by nature, a starter of fires. My work has been to figure out where I’m going to burn down everything around me by adding the fuel of my religion, skin color, gender or even tone.”

“Couldn’t that kind of language be interpreted as a form of demagoguery?” the Times asked.

Omar replied:

It’s metaphorical. There are many times when people will say, “Something you said has agitated this space.” And it’s like, no, it’s me just showing up that did it. There are times when I will choose to not show up, because I know that my presence brings about intensity that isn’t going to be helpful. There’s no one else that exists in a space where they have to deal with the hate of anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, anti-blackness, but also with sexism. People will say it’s my “tone.” I’m like, you’re agitated by my tone because you think people like me should be sitting in a corner, not heard and not seen. Everything that comes out of my mouth is going to be filtered through the lens of you despising my existence.

Omar, who was born in Somalia and lived in a refugee camp in Kenya before coming to the U.S. in the 1990s, has previously accused the U.S. of virtually being a fundamentally bigoted country. In March, Omar claimed that American power comes from racism and that “our history is built on the oppression of black bodies.”

“From slavery to Jim Crow to redlining to mass incarceration to voter suppression, racism is part of the foundation of American power,” she said during a Capitol Hill panel on “racial justice.”

In October 2019, Omar attacked the U.S. and its foreign policy, saying Americans don’t like being reminded that “we have been a villain” in other parts of the world.

“We’re very comfortable being the hero in every story,” the lawmaker told TBS’s Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.”We are not comfortable anytime somebody reminds us we have been a villain. It’s my job to make sure we can end this story as a hero.”


  1. If the US was as intrinsically and systemically racist as you claim, you wouldn’t be sitting in Congress right now. I mean really, a black Somalian immigrant woman? How on earth could you win an election in a systemically racist country?
    It isn’t the color of your skin, it isn’t you are a woman, it isn’t even your religion. It’s that you take the slightest spark that could be misperceived as racist and by your words “My work has been to figure out where I’m going to burn down everything around me by adding the fuel of my religion, skin color, gender or even tone.” fan that spark into a conflagration and cause issues and problems were there were none.
    It is your bitter vitriol that make people want to avoid and dislike you.

  2. I stated before that the tantrums of the leftist democratic body rise when the guidance of the Constitution is followed by those in office who display wisdom and common sense. The track record of what the democrats do is to ignore the constitution or twist the intent until it is no longer recognizable. In order to “fundamentally transform ” this country, as Obama and his fellow corrupters have clearly stated repeatedly, the Constitution is to be circumvented till it’s effectiveness is useless, buried and forgotten. Luke 6:44 makes this principle clear. “For each tree”, or individual , ” is known and identified by its own fruit.” To over and over erase the authority of the law substituting in the preferences of the blind and muddled mind of the democratic subverting “leadership” is the fruit they leave for us to see, second amendment infringement, killing of children before or after birth, filling their pockets with tax monies, giving false information to get their will, throwing tantrums by burning and destroying communities if they are not appeased, voter fraud, false accusations which destroy and harm lives. The list is long and seemingly endless in their and Soros’s effort to up end America.

    Verse 17 states the truth that “Can a blind man guide and direct a blind man? Will they not both stumble into a ditch or a hole in the ground?” The democrats have abandoned the wisdom of our constitution which makes them blind and unable to govern with knowledge. They have blindly without recognizing the clear historical evidence that socialism , marxism and communism is a path to destruction yet they refuse to learn from the history and are blindly forcing us into the same destruction of societies that have taken place before. They insist on guiding with their blindness.

    Now they are threatening to ” throw all that is on the table” if we adhere to the CLEAR Constitutional guidelines concerning the supreme court appointment which will not be the fulfillment of their corrupt blind wants.

    It defies my understanding why we are even contemplating to elect and put people in positions of authority to manage our country with the guidance of the Constitution and laws who DO NOT EVEN INTERESTED IN BEING GUIDED BY THE CONSTITUTION in spite of their falsely spoken words of their oath of office.

  3. what an ungrateful witch. constantly denigrating the country that gave her EVERYTHING. if she stayed in her country the best she could have hoped for would to be a prostitute. as a Muslim she seeks not to integrate into OUR society but to convert it to Islam. she is deceitful and cannot be trusted as her allegiance is to shari law not to the constitution and rule of law.

  4. Ilhan Omar, drunk turkey, that’s all you left-wing parrots know: blah, blah, blah with invented racism. Racism of ideological invention. It’s stupid who else will notice you.

    Until then, the white American man has fought a fierce civil war to free you. No other race, civilization, people, religion, has deserved to incriminate the slavery of his fellow man than the civilization of the white man, of European and Christian type. And the route of this unique civilization, with universal value is this: Ancient Greece-via Rome-Christianity-modernity.

    • I love Africans, Chinese and all races, because we are all people of God. And yet I am proud to be European. Without the European civilization on both sides of the Atlantic, you would all be enslaved. You would have continued to enslave each other.
      The whole history of mankind confirms me.

      Apologize for your ingratitude, you fool of the village!
      Now !!!
