How is she an AMERICAN politician?
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) suggested in a recently resurfaced interview that Americans should be “more fearful of white men” than Islamic terror.
The far-left “Squad” member was asked for her thoughts on the purported rise of Islamophobia in the wake of terror attacks such as the Manhattan bike path massacre.
“I would say our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country,” Omar claimed.

“And so if fear was the driving force of policies to keep America safe — Americans safe inside of this country — we should be profiling, monitoring, and creating policies to fight the radicalization of white men,” she added.
President Trump slammed Omar’s remarks at a recent campaign rally in Greenville, North Carolina, where chants of “send her back” broke out.
“Omar minimized the Sept. 11 attacks on our homeland, saying ‘some people did something,’” said President Trump. “‘Some people did something?’ Yeah, some people did something, alright. She pleaded for compassion for ISIS recruits attempting to join the terrorist organization. She was looking for compassion.”
“Omar laughed that Americans speak of Al Qaeda in a menacing tone, and remarked that, ‘You don’t say ‘America’ with this intensity. You say ‘Al Qaeda,’ makes you proud. Al Qaeda! Makes you proud. You don’t speak that way about America,’” he added.
