Ilhan Omar Ignites Twitter Backlash With Preachy “I Am” Tweet

Ilhan Omar sparked controversy with a lengthy “I am” tweet.

Omar tweeted:

I am,

Foreign born

Easily triggering conservatives, Right wing bloggers, anti Muslim bigots, tinfoil conspiracy theorists, birthers, pay me a

to bash Muslims fraudsters, pro-occupation groups and every single xenophobe since 2016

The declaration sparked backlash online.

Many pointed out Omar left out “American.”

Notice what she left out….


You married your brother to commit immigration fraud. Then you used campaign funds to pay the man you were cheating on your other husband with. Why don’t you address your character instead of things you have no control over?

Not surprising that you don’t identify at all as American. I have no problems with any of the above except that. You were elected by Americans to serve Americans. Thank goodness you don’t purport to represent me.

She leaves out “American” – doesn’t even occur to her.
