Socialist Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) rose to fame as a member of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) “Squad.”

But a disturbing video that leaked online that could cost her everything. 

And Ilhan Omar saw her political future flash before her eyes after she heard these two words.

Representative Ilhan Omar has been no stranger to controversy since she entered Congress in 2019.

Her anti-American, far-Left views have frequently landed her in hot water as one of the most prominent members of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Squad.”

Omar is in the middle of the biggest scandal of her political career after a video of her speaking to a group of Somalis at a Minneapolis hotel leaked online.

Minneapolis is home to the largest Somali community in the country.

She showed where her true loyalties were in a speech to the crowd about the current political situation in Somalia.

Somaliland is a breakaway region of Somalia that is trying to establish itself as an independent country.

The region made a deal with Ethiopia – a bitter regional rival of Somalia – to let the landlocked country lease part of Somaliland’s coastline in exchange for recognizing the breakaway region as an independent country.

Somalia claims that the deal infringes on its territory.

Omar – a Somali immigrant who became an American citizen in 2000 – weighed in on the controversy and let the crowd know where her allegiances were at.

“For as long as I am in the U.S. Congress, Somalia will never be in danger, its waters will not be stolen by Ethiopia or others,” Omar said. “Sleep in comfort, knowing I am here to protect the interests of Somalia from inside the U.S. system.”

“The US government will do what we ask it to do,” Omar continued. “We live in this country. We are taxpayers in this country.”

She boasted that she was a “Somalian first, a Muslim second,” but made no mention of the United States.

Omar swore on her citizenship oath that she would renounce any foreign allegiances.

She also violated the oath of office she took in Congress.

Minnesota Congressman Tom Emmer (R-MN) demanded an ethics investigation in response to her appalling remarks.

The exclusively reported that “Emmer asked the House Ethics Committee to probe whether the Minnesota Democrat had violated Rule XXIII, clause 1, which states: ‘a Member of the House shall behave at all times in a manner that shall reflect credibly on the House.’”

Omar claimed that the viral video was mistranslated and lashed out at “propagandists” for misrepresenting her speech.

“No sitting member of Congress should be able to blatantly spew anti-American rhetoric and get away with it. I am demanding an ethics investigation into Ilhan Omar’s appalling, Somalia-first comments to ensure that she starts taking her oath of office and commitment to the 5th district of Minnesota seriously,” Emmer said in a statement.

Other Republicans called for her to be expelled from Congress.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said she should be stripped of her citizenship and deported.

Ilhan Omar is now in the fight of her political life after admitting that she puts Somalia first.
