Fox host asks why ungrateful ex-Somali refugee Omar attacks U.S.

Tucker Carlson (Fox News)Fox News host Tucker Carlson is begging the question why Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) continues to bash the United States and is so ungrateful to the very nation that saved her from the war-torn Islamic terrorist hotbed of Somalia as a refugee years ago.

Carlson’s latest questioning of America’s tolerance of Omar’s seemingly incessant anti-American remarks comes after her 2017 tweet came to light, where she highlighted the number of Somalis killed by U.S. military forces in a battle taking place in Mogadishu – the Islamic terrorist-harboring capital of Somalia where a dramatization of the fight was portrayed in the 2001 movie, Black Hawk Down.

“Here’s someone who was brought to the United States at public defense simply because we’re a kind country that accepts a lot of refugees,” Carlson stressed on the Tucker Carlson Tonight show – according to The Hill – while interviewing retired Sgt. Maj. Kyle Lamb, who served in U.S. Army Special Operations and fought terrorist insurgents in Mogadishu. “And rather than being grateful for that, she’s spent the rest of her life attacking this country. Why?”

Allegiance to U.S. or Islam?

Omar – who has been under fire for her slew of anti-Semitic and anti-American comments over the past several months since becoming an elected representative in Minnesota, where thousands of refugees have been granted asylum over the decades – is not being let off the hook for her 2017 tweet by conservatives who take allegiance to the U.S. seriously … especially those serving in public office.

In the tweet, the devout hijab-clad (traditional headscarf worn by women adhering to the Islamic faith) congresswoman emphasized how “thousands of Somalis” were killed when discussing a tweet where a Twitter user called the Somali battle in Mogadishu the “worst terrorist attack in Somalia history.”

“In his selective memory, he forgets to also mention the thousands of Somalis killed by the American forces that day! #NotTodaySatan,” Omar tweeted October 16, 2017.

The controversial tweet was resurfaced by an expert whose job is to find and identify terrorist threats in the U.S.

“John Rossomando of The Investigative Project On Terrorism found [the] 2017 tweet where she’s slammed American soldiers for killing … armed Somali militiamen who attacked them – at least, that’s what it looks like to those who were deployed to Somalia in 1993, which resulted in one of the most vicious firefights our forces had seen up until that point since Vietnam,” Townhall reported. “Two Black Hawk helicopters were shot down in a raid that targeted the top lieutenants of the late warlord Mohammed Farrah Aidid, who controlled Mogadishu and was slowly starving his opposition to death in the nation’s brutal civil war that prompted an international response.”

The investigator made his take on Omar’s comments quite clear on Twitter.

“You should have looked at what Chief Warrant Officer Mike Durant – who was shot down in the 1993 Black Hawk Down incident – had to say,” Rossomando tweeted Tuesday. “He slammed her ignorance. They were trying to restore order in a humanitarian mission.”

Outrage on Twitter was voiced after seeing how blatantly Omar took sides against America in its war on terror.

“She watches Black Hawk Down and roots for the other side,” Arthur Schwartz tweeted Monday.

Donald Trump, Jr., was also averse to Omar’s resurfaced remarks when he took to social media to express his views on the matter.

“Is the media going to ask every Democrat if they agree with Ilhan Omar that American troops are killers?!?” Trump, Jr., tweeted Monday.

Just Omar’s latest anti-American sentiment

Just as she did when discussing the 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks in 2001 killing 3,000 Americans, Omar chose to highlight discrimination and prejudice experienced by Muslims instead of expressing any kind gratitude or sympathy for American citizens and soldiers.

Omar triggered outrage earlier when her comments at a CAIR event – the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has been declared an Islamic terrorist-tied organization by the U.S. government – made light of the September 11 tragedy while purposely omitting the identity of the Islamic terrorist attackers.

“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar stated during a speech at a CAIR fundraiser, according to

Instead, she focused on American Muslims as victims, while targeting and blaming conservatives and other American citizens for employing “Islamophobia” for taking precautions against Islamic terrorism in the U.S.

Omar’s sentiments assessed

Showing his disgust over the Muslim politicians’ debasing of U.S. military forces, the 21-year U.S. Army veteran Lamb, who was interviewed by Carlson, also wrote a piece that was recently published on the issue.

“I am thankful Omar and her family and countless others were able to escape to neighboring Kenya while we fought to protect those left behind, but I simply cannot comprehend her attitude towards those of us who fought to protect her country and countrymen from warlords who plunged Somalia only further into violence and starvation,” Lamb wrote in a column for the Federalist. “I am glad that Omar can now enjoy the very freedoms we fought to protect – like the freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion affirmed in the U.S. Constitution – but I don’t understand why she uses those freedoms to slur the men and women of the U.S. military who made her security and liberty a reality.”

The former soldier, who also served in numerous combat tours in Iraq and authored several books, including Leadership in the Shadows – could not get over Omar’s lack of respect and appreciation for the nation that saved her and provides for her livelihood.

“The simple truth is that Omar enjoys the fruits of American combat deaths, yet she can’t even bring herself to acknowledge the ultimate sacrifice that was made on her behalf – either as a Somali or an American,” Lamb contended. “Her clan didn’t stand a chance against Aidid and Habar Gidirs, so I don’t blame her for leaving. But I do blame her for attacking those of us who had zero personal interest or investment in her nation for doing our jobs on behalf of our country, and I blame her for smearing American servicemen because we answered the call of our nation to address the violent barbarism of hers.”
