Ilhan Omar Blames US Soldiers For Something People Did During ‘Black Hawk Down’
Ilhan Omar Blames US Soldiers For Something People Did During ‘Black Hawk Down’
Ilhan Omar is ungrateful. She came to the United States at age 12 as a refugee from war torn Somalia, and is now a member of Congress. Yet time after time she portrays herself as a victim or slams the United States as the manifest evil. How evil does this ungrateful person think our country is? Evil enough that she slams our American soldiers who fought and died in “Black Hawk Down.”
From the Investigative Project on Terrorism:
“The United States Army was the villain in the “Black Hawk Down” incident in Somalia, U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., wrote in a 2017 Twitter post.
Omar, a Somali native elected to Congress last fall, was responding to a tweet that falsely described the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu as the worst terrorist attack in Somali history. The original tweet noted that 19 American soldiers were killed and 73 American soldiers were wounded.”
The original tweet was from former Senator Al Franken about a horrific attack in 2017.
This was her tweet in response to Joshua’s comment about Mogadishu:
In his selective memory, he forgets to also mention the thousands of Somalis killed by the American forces that day! #NotTodaySatan https://t.co/wrFocrZymQ

Her asinine and ungrateful response completely misses several key points.
First, the United States was there as part of a United Nations humanitarian mission. Why? Because a significant majority of Somalian citizens were starving and in dire need of medical care. Our soldiers were there to protect the aid teams and supplies from being stolen.
Secondly, actual figures show that approximately 500-700 Somali’s died in the battle. If others did, it was because of the fact that even women and children took part in the attacks on our soldiers.
Third, Ilhan wants us to ignore the fact that Somalia in the 1990’s was a hell hole. In 1993 when the Battle of Mogadishu took place, aid workers were being attacked by all the warring factions. Food and medical supplies were being stolen and the aid ships were being shelled.
She wants us to ignore the fact that the country of her birth was in such turmoil that her family got the hell out of there in 1991 and finally made it to the US in 1995.
Instead she ends her tweet with #NotTodaySatan.
Nice to see the true colors
The US military are the bad guys in Black Hawk Down killing the brave terrorists
I knew one of the operators killed there
& all of the Somalis our troops took out
Were trying to kill more Americans

Ilhan Omar does not like America. She hates a country that gave her and her family refuge. She hates a country that has given her the freedom to spout this crap and not be jailed for it. She hates a country that has led to her being elected to Congress. Could she have done any of that in Somalia? NOPE.
Zuhdi Jasser, a retired Navy physician, was on the U.S.S. El Paso with Operation Restore Hope at the time. He has never been able to watch the “Black Hawk Down” movie because he knew many of the soldiers involved.
“”If anyone ended up killing people it was the response of Aidid’s guys that ended up doing that,” Jasser said. Omar’s criticism of U.S. soldiers is symptomatic of what he sees as her anti-Americanism.
“I’m particularly offended as an American and as a Muslim that nobody is holding her accountable for these radical views that really view our soldiers as the problem rather than the solution,” Jasser said. “She doesn’t see terror groups as an issue. She’s asked for lighter sentencing for ISIS war criminals. She ignores Al-Shabaab recruitment from her district – the highest in the U.S. – and fought our CVE programs there with CAIR.””
Our guys were outnumbered but managed to prevail. Yet Ilhan doesn’t care about that.
Quite frankly, Ilhan Omar is an ungrateful wretch of a human being.
Weird how @IlhanMN sticks up more for the country she fled than the one she fled to. https://t.co/gffQLbAfwd

It’s not weird, it’s wrong. She’s also very dangerous. Why? Because even though this information is coming to light, she is being given a pass by the Democrats. She’s still on the House Foreign Affairs committee. Her influence is such that Pelosi won’t even hold her accountable for her anti-semitism let alone her blatant anti-American commentary.
Ilhan Omar is a dangerously ungrateful wretch. One who hates our military. One who advocates FOR terrorists at every turn.
This is a feature with her, not a bug.

Interestingly, Wikipedia puts her birth in 1981. And it puts her entry into the US in 1992, with them actually applying for asylum in 1995.
All of that oddness with dates, combined with the “bro-fo” thing, makes me wonder about her background – how much of it is true and how much baloney to justify her political stance.
<I'm going to disagree with "Joshua" on the basis that it was not a terror attack. One armed force going up against another armed force, even though it's an ambush is NOT a “terror attack”. It was a military battle. It was one we were not mentally prepared for, as we’d been doing these sorts of humanitarian missions too often, and lost our edge. The fact we managed to be ultimately militarily successful is a testament to just how good our military is.
he forgets to also mention the thousands of Somalis killed by the American forces that day
Great! That means we were even MORE militarily successful than we thought!
That pretty much puts her on my “Domestic Enemies of the Constitution” list.
She hates a country that has led to her being elected to Congress.
The fact her district has a huge Somali population is the main reason she could win. She very much is a Somali first, American second, based on her actions.
If she can’t even tell the truth about the fact that she married her brother, what would make you think that she’d tell the truth about her age?? (the fact that her “constituents” didn’t care about any of this shows that such behavior is perfectly “normal” and acceptable in the shithole they came from…
She is a Muslim first, Somali second, and self-serving bitch that doesn’t deserve citizenship.
Spot of SFC! Remind me again why we let in all these America haters from third world shitholes, when all they want to do is criticize this country, while taking advantage of all the benefits, and simultaneously turning it into the same kind of shithole they left???
And as to this bitch, she, and everyone who voted for her should have their citizenship revoked, and be sent back to somalia
I once had a real bad day in Somalia that could’ve been my last day on earth. It’s kinda personal for me.
Can’t say I’ve been in such a situation, but I can certainly understand the sentiment, and damn sure respect those, like you, who have.
Ilhan Omar is an enemy operative who has made it into Congress. We should regard her and her supporters as such.
” She’s still on the House Foreign Affairs committee. ”
Which gives her access to top secret intel. That makes Pelosi guilty of treason (providing aid and comfort to the enemy) by leaving her there.
And President Trump isn’t helping. He should direct the intelligence agencies to provide no further classified material to any committee she sits on, and start conducting stings of releasing certain information only to certain people, both in the Congress and Executive.
[…] callously dismissed the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something,” blamed American soldiers for Black Hawk Down, and tweeted multiple anti-semitic tropes. She’s been called out every […]
