How is she allowed to get away with this?
Far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) exploded at an audience member who asked her to condemn female genital mutilation to which Omar said she was “disgusted” by the question and that it was a waste of time.
Ani Zonneveld, president of Muslims for Progressive Values, asked Omar, “Will you be able to make a statement against FGM? Because that’s an issue in Detroit, and it would be really powerful if the two Muslim Congresswomen, yourself and Rashida, would make a statement on this issue.”
Omar responded to the question by saying: “Should I make a schedule? Like, does this need to be on repeat every 5 minutes? Should I be like, ‘so, today I forgot to condemn Al-Qaeda, so here’s the Al-Qaeda one. Today I forgot to condemn FGM so here it goes. Today I forgot to condemn Hamas so here it goes.’ It is a very frustrating question that comes up.”
Omar added that she was “quite disgusted to be honest that as Muslim legislators, we are constantly being asked to waste our time speaking to issues that other people are not asked to speak to because the assumption exists that we somehow support [it].”
