Ilhan Omar is going to regret this one.
The freshmen Congresswoman from Minnesota has made a career out of escaping accountability from scandal.
But Ilhan Omar’s luck just ran out after being caught in this massive lie.
Ilhan Omar’s track record of lying is beginning to catch up with her.
In recent weeks, media outlets began to dig into her controversial marriage history when evidence substantiating the claims that Omar married her brother emerged.
If that wasn’t bad enough, Omar ran into another issue with the truth.
A Washington Post profile of Omar described a scene where Omar staged a courtroom protest over a woman being sentenced to jail for stealing a $2 dollar loaf of bread to feed her starving granddaughter.
The Washington Post exclusively reported:
Five years earlier, Omar told the students, she was working for a Minneapolis city councilman who asked her to report back on problems with the courts. There, she recalled encountering a “sweet, old . . . African American lady” who had been arrested for stealing a $2 loaf of bread to feed her “starving 5-year-old granddaughter.”
After spending the weekend in jail, the woman was led into the courtroom and fined $80 — a penalty she couldn’t pay. “I couldn’t control my emotions,” Omar continued, “because I couldn’t understand how a roomful of educated adults could do something so unjust.”
“Bulls—!” she recalled yelling in the courtroom.
Unfortunately Omar told the story a little too well.
Reporters immediately recognized Omar’s tale as a plot point from the popular Broadway play Les Misérables.
When called out for cribbing a storyline from a popular play, Omar admitted she made the whole thing up.
The Washington Post also exclusively reports:
Omar’s story echoed the plot of “Les Misérables.” If true, it is also probably embellished. City officials said that police aren’t allowed to arrest people for shoplifting unless there’s a likelihood of violence or further crime. Typically, shoplifters are sentenced to attend a three-hour class.
In an interview, Omar said she may have flubbed some facts. “She might have had a prior [arrest],” Omar said. “I’m not sure. . . . The details might not have all matched, but that’s what I remember.”
It’s not surprising that Omar would fabricate an act of grave injustice in order to brainwash children into accepting her deranged anti-American view.
Liberals have to falsify a version of America as a country whose prosperity only flows from the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow.
In the left’s telling, America is not a force for good.
America is a racist, sexist, xenophobic country whose wealth and power is an unworthy reward for failing to live up to the nation’s founding ideals.
Liberals have to peddle this nonsense because no one would accept turning America into a socialist country unless they were convinced America was a country undeserving of its good fortune and needed to be brought down.
Of all of Ilhan Omar’s scandals, her fundamental hatred of America is what infuriates many Americans the most.
