Anti-Islamist activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali scathed Congresswoman Ilhan Omar during an appearance on Fox News on Thursday, after the Somalia-born Omar called for “dismantling” the economy and politics of the United States.
“As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality so we cannot stop at the criminal justice system,” Rep. Omar had declared. “We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”
Hirsi Ali is a former Dutch politician of Somali origin who became a strong critic of radical Islamic terrorist ideology. She has since legally immigrated to the United States and become a patriotic American.
“She’s in Congress — the United States Congress and she is saying ‘Why don’t we dismantle the whole thing?'” Hirsi Ali clapped back. “It makes you wonder. Why flee from Mogadishu, why flee from anarchy, why flee from oppression — and then come to the United States and do all your best to turn Minnesota and the U.S. into Mogadishu?”
Like Hirsi Ali, Omar is also a former Somali refugee. However, the difference between the two women is that while Hirsi Ali respects American values of patriotism and liberty, Omar seeks to radically transform America into an country that more closely resembles third world despotic states such as Somalia.
Omar was elected to Congress from Minnesota in 2018, and has since become a key member of the far-left group known as the Squad, led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York. Along with Ocasio-Cortez, Massachusetts’ Ayanna Pressley and Michigan’s Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Omar has agitated for radical leftist policies that seek to push America closer towards socialism. The four Congresswomen are closely aligned with Vermont’s Senator Bernie Sanders, a failed 2016 and 2020 presidential candidate and the leader of the modern socialist movement in the United States.
