There is an absolutely spot-on, grand slam knocked outta the park post entitled Ilhan the Ungrateful at Powerline blog.
It is must reading for understanding her mindset of perpetual victimology:
Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar must be one of the most fortunate people in the world.
Omar’s complaints represent the new assimilation. Nobody knows the troubles she’s seen — since she arrived in the United States. Discrimination and “Islamophobia” are her constant refrain.
In his Opinion newsletter dated February 12, Star Tribune editorial page editor Scott Gillespie noted: “Omar, the first Somali-American and one of the first two Muslim women to serve in Congress, has faced bigotry since immigrating to the U.S. at age 12 – a painful personal history she described when meeting with the Editorial Board for an endorsement interview last summer.”
Gillespie takes her complaints at face value. He does not pause to reflect. Omar is an extraordinarily ungrateful refugee. She habitually portrays herself as a victim. It’s an irritating if revealing tic. Her heart is full of hate.
… Omar recalling “the first day we arrived in America[.]” Omar quickly concluded that it was not the golden land that she had heard about. “I think back to the orientations I went through a little over 20 years ago in the process of coming to this country, and in those orientations they did not have people who were homeless. There was an America that extended liberty and justice to everyone. There was an America where prosperity was guaranteed regardless of where you were born and what you looked like and who you prayed to,” she said, adding, “I wasn’t comfortable with that hypocrisy.”
She expresses no gratitude to the United States, no pride in her citizenship. She has weighed us in the balance and found us wanting.
The Powerline post is a microcosm of how The New Left views tradition American Exceptionalism with a visceral fear and loathing.
She and the other leftist freshmen in Congress are poster kids for the effectiveness of the Howard Zinnisanation of American history.
Omar has a congressional seat for life in one of the safest Democrat districts in the nation (MN5 – all of Minneapolis proper and several small suburbs).
She is going to be around for a long, long time…
