Rule Five Imported Traitors Friday

I wrote about this over at RedState on Tuesday, but wanted to get in some more thoughts, unfiltered, here, where I drop F-bombs if I want – and in this case, I will.

I wrote:

Ilhan Omar’s speech here – she was speaking in Somali, which makes one wonder if she presumed nobody would bother with a translation – betrays her real allegiance, which is not to the people of Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, as per the oath of office she took (but has clearly abandoned) when she was elected to the United States House of Representatives. She does not consider herself to be an American, instead claiming to be a “Somalian first, Muslim second.”

Where does American come in her calculus? Nowhere, it seems; as a member of the notorious Squad, she has been involved in anti-American activity since she entered Congress.


One can make a good argument that Ilhan Omar misrepresented her intent when she took the oath of allegiance to the United States. She has also allegedly misrepresented family attachments to aid in the importation of other Somalis. But the real key point here is in her speech; she has stated — openly — that her allegiance is not to the United States nor her constituents, but to a foreign power.

Yes, I said it, and I’ll say it again: Ilhan Omar entered the United States, gained citizenship, and assumed her seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, all based on a tissue of lies.  She lied when she took her oath of allegiance to the United States, she lied again when she took her Congressional oath of office, and she lied whenever she claimed to represent the people of Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District.  She is a serial liar, the agent of a foreign power, and must be expelled from Congress and from the United States.

The Federalist’s John Daniel Davidson also has some thoughts:

In light of Omar’s candidness, it’s fair to ask: Why is she allowed to serve in Congress? Why is she even allowed to remain in the United States? Omar is an immigrant and a U.S. citizen, but clearly she is not an American. She appears to have no allegiance to her adopted country — a country that took her in, sheltered and protected her, provided a safe haven from the chaos and violence of her homeland, and elevated her to a position of power and influence.

Omar herself is of course an antisemite and a radical leftist. Her remarks are only important because they illustrate how her presence in the United States is a searing indictment of our entire immigration system and much of our foreign policy over the last 40 years. We should never have allowed people like her into our country, and by “people like her” I don’t have race in mind. I mean people whose national allegiances lie with other lands and other people, and whose priorities and way of life are incompatible with American republicanism and our national character.

Ilhan Omar (D-Somalia) is a staggering indictment of our immigration and naturalization system.  She has revealed herself to be an agent of a foreign power, and not one that is friendly to the United States.  She should – nay, she must be expelled from Congress, have her citizenship revoked, and be deported back to that Third World shithole she came from.  She claims to represent Somalia – let her do it there.
