Reading from a script, Omar calls the riots “an ongoing uprising over centuries of racial neglect and oppression.” She added that “we maintain a system that grinds millions into desperate poverty.” She further calls for a socialist system to replace our open capitalist system.
Omar’s ingratitude to the country that saved her and her family is staggering.
According to her official biography, the first-term Democrat was born in the capital of Somalia, Mogadishu, which had been ravaged by “uprisings” from warlords and terrorists after its government collapsed in 1991. Children were being taken by the rival militias, armed with guns and a powerful local drug called “khat,” and made to fight in the horrific gang war. An estimated 500,000 Somalis died in the street wars, and about 1.5 million fled.
Omar and her family escape Somalia’s chaos and spent a few years in a refugee camp in Kenya. They arrived in the United States in 1995 and were given refugee status due to the violence, bloodshed, and piracy that were and remain rampant in her native land.
American troops attempted to save Somalia from its warlords in the early 1990s under the aegis of an international United Nations relief mission. But after the bloody Battle of Mogadishu, Oct. 3-4, 1993, the U.S. and the U.N. rethought the mission and eventually withdrew. Nineteen Americans selflessly died in the “Black Hawk Down” battle, in the attempt to bring order to Omar’s native land. They ranged in age from 20 to 45 and were from all over the United States, and included black, white, and Hispanic Americans.
