OMAR EXPLODES: Ilhan Omar Compares ICE Detention Facilities with African ‘Slave Dungeons’

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.17.19

Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar stunned audience members this week; directly equating ICE detention facilities with “slave dungeons” in Africa at the height of the international slave trade.

“We arrived in Ghana. One of the first things we did was visit the dungeons. I remember, as we arrived, one of the guides let us into the female dungeon and he started giving us a description of what used to take place as the Africans were being held there as captives,” said Omar.

“Every time he gave a description, I had this flashback to an image that I saw on TV in Libya, where you had Africans in a small room that were now captives. That image was from today,” she added.


“Every time he would talk about the separation of the kids from their parents, and how they would have young girls be in the same dungeons as the women… I couldn’t stop seeing images of the current camps we have here at our borders in the United States,” Omar concluded.

Omar defended her previous rhetoric regarding the 9/11 terror attacks over the weekend; saying the US must remember the “aftermath” of September 11th that “stripped” Americans of their “civil rights.”

“Do you understand why people found that offensive?” asked Face the Nation, referencing Omar’s comments that “some people did something.”

“So, 9/11 was an attack on all Americans. It was an attack on all of us. I certainly could not understand the weight of the pain that the victims of the families of 9/11 must feel. I think it’s really important for us to make sure that we are not forgetting the aftermath of what happened,” deflected Omar.

“Many Americans found themselves having their civil rights stripped from them… As a Muslim not only was I suffering as an American, but the next day I woke up as my fellow Americans were treating me as suspect,” she added.

Controversial Rep. Ilhan Omar stunned Americans on both sides of the political aisle Friday; comparing her previous comments on the 9/11 terror attack with George W. Bush’s address from the rubble of the World Trade Center.

“’The people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!’ President George W. Bush. Was Bush downplaying the terrorist attack? What if he was a Muslim?” posted Omar on social media.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi confirmed Friday she plans to “speak to her” regarding Omar’s stunning rhetoric.

AOC ERUPTS: Ocasio-Cortez RIPS Dan Crenshaw, Claims He’s ‘Drumming Resentment’ Towards Rep. Omar

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed Rep. Dan Crenshaw on social media Thursday afternoon; accusing the GOP lawmaker of ‘drumming resentment’ towards Ilhan Omar.

“You refuse to cosponsor the 9/11 Victim’s Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes,” posted Ocasio-Cortez. “In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why don’t you go do something about that?”

Rep. Omar found herself in hot-water this week after footage emerged showing the freshman Democrat referring to the 9/11 terror attacks as “some people” who “did something.”
