“Long live Somalia.” The left-wing dominated culture kommandants dictate that this is what’s cool. Over 100 new Congress people were elected in the mid-terms but it is the ugly, anti-America, pro-jihad voices that get all the media, all the attention. Why? To move the dial, that’s why.
Ilhan Omar Sends Somber Fourth Of July Message Days After Celebrating Somali Independence DayBy Molly Prince, Daily Caller,
Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar urged Americans to celebrate the Fourth of July by reflecting on “how much further we have to go,” standing in contrast to her joyful celebration of Somali Independence Day four days prior.
“Today gives us all a chance to reflect on how far we have come as a country and how much further we have to go to achieve full equality for all people,” Omar tweeted July 4. “We are at a tipping point for progress right now.”
“Happy 4th of July,” she added.
Today gives us all a chance to reflect on how far we have come as a country and how much further we have to go to achieve full equality for all people.
We are at a tipping point for progress right now. ✊🏽
Happy 4th of July! 🇺🇸

Omar’s congressional office also tweeted a Fourth of July message, stating that Independence Day is a time to celebrate American values such as freedom of the press, equal protection of all minorities and America’s role in guaranteeing human rights worldwide.
While there was no mention of America’s independence from Britain, the tweet listed the Constitution, despite the holiday actually celebrating the Declaration of Independence.
Omar’s congressional office also included “freedom from foreign influence” as a reason to celebrate the Fourth of July. Omar faced massive backlash in February after she suggested Jews’ support of Israel is paid for. She later denied the age-old anti-Semitic canard contending she was simply referring to “the political influence in this country that says it is okay to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”
“We must continue to strive to make our union even more perfect,” Omar’s office added to the Independence Day tweet.
The message of reflection comes only days after Omar posted a video of herself joyfully dancing along during a Somali Independence Day celebration.
“Happy Independence Day Somalia,” Omar tweeted July 1 before adding “Somalia hanoolaato,” which translates into “Long live Somalia.”
