Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is refusing to join the chorus of Republicans condemning President Donald Trump for attacking socialist Democratic representatives such as Ilhan Omar (D-MN). He believes Trump’s comments hit the mark, particularly about the Somali migrant turned Congressional critic of American values.
“I’m sort of dumbfounded how unappreciative she is of our country,” Paul told Wave 3 News.
“She says this is terrible, a place without justice and all this. She’s a congresswoman. She got here as a refugee 20 years ago. She’s elected to congress. I can’t imagine a better country that elected her to congress and she badmouths our country,” he added.
Although Paul criticizes Omar, he makes it clear that has no problem with lawful immigrants coming to the U.S. to work and believes she is an outlier. Her story of contempt and entitlement is rare compared to the legal immigrants who appreciate the opportunities America has given them, Paul claims.
“I know this Somali family that came about the same time [as Omar] to Bowling Green, and it’s just this dramatic story of hope and wonder,” Paul said. “Those are the stories, but it’s not this angry story.”
“She has this bitterness and anger toward the country,” Paul added. “So I think she does deserve a rebuke over trying to say we have a rotten country.”
Omar has made many incendiary and hate-filled comments against white people and the Jewish people of Israel throughout her first term as a Congresswoman. She has also made comments seemingly equating Al Qaeda with the United States in terms of legitimacy and reputability.
“When I was in college, I took a terrorism class,” she said. “Every time the professor said ‘al-Qaeda,’ his shoulders went up. He’d say ‘al-Qaeda’ and ‘Hezbollah.’ You don’t say ‘America’ with an intensity. You don’t say ‘England’ with the intensity. You don’t say ‘the army’ with the intensity.”
“It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” Omar said to left-wing journalist Glenn Greenwald in a since-deleted Tweet inferring that is bought off by Jewish influence. Omar is also a proponent of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement against the state of Israel.
“This is not going to be the country of the xenophobics. This is not going to be the country of white people. This is not going to be the country of the few. This is going to be the country of the many,” Omar declared in a statement of intent for her hostile Islamic takeover of America.
She also wants the 2016 presidential election to be overthrown based on false debunked conspiracy theories regarding Russian collusion, which have been dispelled by the Mueller report.
“This president has been credibly accused of committing multiple crimes, including colluding with a foreign government to interfere with our election,” Omar said.
Paul’s comments are in stark contrast to his former colleague Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI), who used the phony controversy to virtue signal and tar the President as a racist.
To tell these American citizens (most of whom were born here) to “go back” to the “crime infested places from which they came” is racist and disgusting. https://t.co/sIAqg8bTIb

The Senator from Kentucky is showing that he is the man with the backbone to stand against the radical socialists intending to overthrow the Bill of Rights and Constitution, rather than appeasing them for personal gains like Amash is doing.
