The majority of American citizens live their entire lives here without becoming wealthy and elite members of congress. But a former refugee, who came here with nothing and was ‘somehow’ propelled to the House of Representatives, apparently thinks that trashing the country that has given her everything is fine.
In fact, Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar explained how her “American Dream” was shattered once she came to the U.S. Of course, while stumping for Bernie Sanders in Clive, Iowa, she completely ignored the ‘progressive’ policies that have created the poverty, filth and lack she apparently blames all Americans for.
Perhaps she also doesn’t realize that her personal ‘American dream’ consists of a number of potential crimes?
“When I first came to the United States, I remember one of the first things that I saw was homeless people sleeping on the sides of Manhattan when we arrived in New York. And I remember turning to my father and saying, ‘This doesn’t look like the America you promised.’ And my father looked at me and said, ‘Hush, child, we are going to get to our America,'” Omar recounted.
“Because the America we were shown in the orientation tapes when we were coming here from the refugee camp in Kenya had beautiful homes with white picket fences, happy families eating a full meal in their beautiful living rooms. It had happy children getting on the bus to go to their beautiful schools. It had pictures of amazing malls, megamalls, and had pictures of beautifully built bridges and highways. It was a picture of abundance. Now that is the ideal.”
“That is the America we all know we deserve but our reality is full of homeless people. Our reality is full of families who have moms and dads who are going without dinner or lunch or breakfast just so that they can have enough for their children,” she explained.
“Our reality is full of kids who are showing up to schools that are full of mold and leaking rooftops. Our reality has children who are facing drills every single day to learn about how they can escape being shot in our schools.”
Omar seems to forget that the areas that are being overrun with homeless people – like San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York City – are all cities under Democratic mayors and legislators.
Homelessness isn’t a new phenomenon. L.A. has always had “Skid Row,” an area in downtown that has become infamous because of its condensed homeless population.
Democrats continually cite areas like Skid Row or even Downtown San Francisco as an area they want to “clean up” and “fix.” What do they do? Throw our taxpayer dollars at the problem but they never get to the root cause of the issue and why people are homeless to begin with.
Is it because people fell on hard times and couldn’t afford a house or an apartment? Did someone get involved in drugs and they’re living on the streets so the money they’d spend on housing can go towards their drug habit? Does mental illness play a role in a person’s instable living conditions?
In fact, Dr. Drew Pinsky has repeatedly said the people on Los Angeles’ streets are people who are “chronically mentally ill” and they fail to receive treatment. That’s a place for Democrats to start instead of launching poop patrols like San Francisco did.
Instead of coming to America and blaming the country for not living up to her fantasy, Omar should be looking at her party for failing to give her and her family the “American Dream” they were promised.
Rep. Omar cont’d, explains disappointment moving to U.S. & seeing homeless people rather than “white picket fences”

However, many people argue that her supreme insults and hypocrisy are typical of the left, so this isn’t surprising. They cite the fact that Sanders’ policies would initiate the sort of problems evident in these democrat controlled ‘enclaves’ throughout the United States, and would eliminate prosperity, creating a country of slave-dependency like Venezula, where essentials like toilet paper, food, and water are only readily available to the ‘ruling class,’ like Omar.
