Fox News’ Tucker Carlson was bang on with his recent commentary on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) who was a refugee taken in by a merciful nation, afforded citizenship, and given a life of safety and leisure…

Sadly, she now seeks to destroy the country that gave her safety and freedom.

From Tucker Carlson at Fox NewsFrom Tucker Carlson at Fox News:

In 1992, Ilhan Omar came to this country from a refugee camp in East Africa. Three years later, she and her family applied for, and received, refugee status in the United States. Five years after that, she became a U.S. citizen. She’s been attacking the United States as a racist hellhole pretty much ever since.

According to Omar, there’s barely a difference between this country and terrorist groups like Al Qaeda. In a 2013 interview, Omar complained that people seem to think there’s a big difference between America and Al Qaeda.

“When I was in college, I took a terrorism class,” she said. “Every time the professor said ‘Al Qaeda,’ his shoulders went up. He’d say ‘Al Qaeda’ and ‘Hezbollah.’ You don’t say ‘America’ with an intensity. You don’t say ‘England’ with the intensity. You don’t say ‘the army’ with the intensity.”

So, she still feels this way. We know because she spoke at a recent event hosted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations [CAIR], and Congresswoman Omar complained that America is bigoted against Muslims. They’re second-class citizens here, she said.

Omar offered no proof of that. It’s an absurd claim. Muslims live with far greater freedom in America than in any Islamic country in the world. That’s why so many have moved here, and millions more want to join them. And you would, too. That’s why Congresswoman Omar lives here, and not in Somalia. In America, she’s an elected member of Congress. She couldn’t do that in Saudi Arabia.

But is she grateful? No. She never stops complaining. As part of that complaining, she made this now-famous remark about 9/11: “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

“Some people did something.” Omar’s understatement attracted plenty of criticism. The New York Post ran a cover showing images of the 9/11 attacks, in case you’d forgotten what “some people” did. Late last week, President Trump joined the criticism by tweeting an infamous video with images of the 9/11 attacks and Omar’s words.
