Woke Squad Member Under Pressure Following Speech 

Daily Report January 30,2024

Rep. Ilhan Omar is facing calls to resign following accusations that her latest speech placed the Somai interest ahead of the American people she was elected to serve.

Omar, a member of the woke House squad and the first Somali-American in Congress, landed in trouble after a clip of her speech went viral.

“As Somalis, one day we will go after our missing territories,” Omar said in her speech. “While I am in Congress, no one will take Somalia’s sea. The United States will not back others to rob us. So, do not lose sleep over that.”

The speech brought Omar under heavy criticism, with House Majority Whip Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN) calling for the lawmaker to resign in disgrace.

“Ilhan Omar’s appalling, Somalia-first comments are a slap in the face to the Minnesotans she was elected to serve and a direct violation of her oath of office,” Emmer wrote on X. “She should resign in disgrace.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who accused Omar of putting Somali first and America last, slammed the squad member for vowing to protect Somalia’s borders while opposing efforts to secure the US-Mexico border.

“Terrorist sympathizer Ilhan Omar, in her own words: Somalian first. Muslim second. She never mentions America,” Green wrote on X. “She flaunts using her position as congresswoman to protect Somalia’s border while our border is invaded by MILLIONS of illegals who are a danger to America. These people hate America and they’re so emboldened by the Democrats’ disdain for our country, they’re not even trying to hide it anymore. Get out and vote in 2024. Bring your family. Bring your friends. Bring every like-minded Patriot you know to the polls.”

Omar has, however, claimed that her speech was lost in translation.

“It’s not only slanted but completely off, but I wouldn’t expect more from these propagandists. I pray for them and for their sanity,” Omar wrote on X.
