Ilhan Omar Once Called for Opponent to be 'Deported' to 'Wherever You Came From'

Radical Democrat accused of hypocrisy as old tweets resurface

Ilhan Omar once tweeted to an opponent: 'why don’t we deport you to where ever you came from'

After accusing President Donald Trump of racism for suggesting she help fix her native country's problems, remarks made by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in 2012 have resurfaced in which she calls for her opponent to be "deported."

Old tweets made by radical Democrat Omar show her telling her political opponent that she needed to be deported to "where ever" she "came from" — a rhetorical tactic that Democrats have described as “un-American” and “racist.”

President Donald Trump came under fire after he tweeted that Omar and three other far-left Democratic lawmakers in the so-called "AOC Squad" should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came” and then “come back and show us how it is done.”

He later clarified that he meant simply that if they didn't like the United States, they should leave, and did not call for them to be deported.

According to Breitbart, some members of a large rally crowd in North Carolina chanted “Send her back,” in reference to Omar, during Trump’s speech there last Wednesday.

The president disavowed it the next day.

But Omar has, in fact, called for an opponent to be deported.

Her tweet, from 2012, was unearthed as a similar tweet from Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MN) — one of the other “Squad” members — surfaced, in which she declared “Deport this asshole!” in 2015.

Omar’s tweet read: “we are citizens & can’t be deported, why don’t we deport you to where ever you came from.”

Omar was responding to a thread of comments on an article about how a mayor in Maine said that Somali immigrants to the community should “accept our culture and leave your culture at the door.”

During the course of the debate, Omar defended the right of Somalis not to assimilate: “Most people I know keep and maintain their culture,” she said, adding, “[d]on’t expect us to change either. We have as much right to be here as you.”

One of her interlocutors, who appears to be female and has a “protected” account, seems to have brought up deportation.

Omar’s reference to deportation seems to have been a response.

Nevertheless, she and Tlaib are guilty of the very thing they are accusing Trump of doing — and worse, since he specifically disagreed with calls for them to be sent “back” voluntarily.

(Tlaib, who has emphasized her family’s Palestinian origins, was born in Michigan.)

One observer suggested that telling opponents to leave the country was, in fact, a common tactic in heated political debate:

Trump did not mention race or color in his tweets, but his opponents, including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), have specifically done so.

Pelosi claimed that Trump wanted to “make America white again.”
