Jihad-Rep Ilhan Omar Posts Video That Proclaims the US Is ‘Not Very Good at Anything’ Except War

This country was so good to this traitorous bitch. But jihad abrogates all.

Ilhan Omar Posts Video That Proclaims the US Is ‘Not Very Good at Anything’ Except War

Ilhan Omar Posts Video That Proclaims the US Is ‘Not Very Good at Anything’ Except War

U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Minnesota Democrat, used her Twitter account on Monday to post a video that claimed the United States is good for nothing but making war.

By Joe Saunders, Western Journal, January 6, 2020:

A former refugee shouldn’t be so rude.

But Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar put her crassness on display early Monday when she posted an obscenity-riddled stand-up comedy bit from the late, legendary comedian George Carlin.

Omar, of course, wasn’t looking for laughs — she even captioned the video “It’s no laughing matter.”

What the Democrat was obviously, doing, though, was giving a platform to the liberal canard that the greatest country the world has ever seen is running out of the energy that made it great.

But as a refugee whose family found safety and a future in a country she takes for granted, Omar was missing the point.

The video was from an appearance Carlin made in 1992 at the formerly named Paramount Theater at New York’s Madison Square Garden (now The Theatre at Madison Square Garden).

“This country’s only 200 years old and already, we’ve had 10 major wars,” Carlin told his audience, according to a transcript of the show. “We average a major war every 20 years in this country, so we’re good at it! And it’s a good thing we are; we’re not very good at anything else anymore!”

While its blistering description of the United States is as offensive in some ways as the obscenity it contained, the bit was basically a rehash of the “counter-cultural” comedy Carlin built a career on, from mocking the Vietnam War right up to the second Bush presidency.

But that relentlessly negative outlook on America was doubtless what appealed to Omar the most.

Check it out here. (WARNING: This video contains obscene language that some readers may find offensive.)

Since there’s always a good chance of finding a fair number of knuckleheads following a Twitter account belonging to someone like Ilhan Omar, it’s no surprise that a lot of the responses thought this was just great.

Unfortunately for Omar, some in the audience weren’t biting at all.
