Ilhan Omar Sparks Concern After Creepy Thing She Said To Supporters

A video posted Tuesday shows a defiant Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) telling a room of supporters not to worry about her and vowing, “I know that as long as I breathe that I will continue to make people uncomfortable in the best way possible.”

The video was posted by Rasha Mubarak, president of the Young Democrats of Orange County (Florida) and has received over one million views. Mubarak did not post the context of the video, but its posting comes in the midst of a firestorm about Omar’s questioning the loyalty of Jewish-American supporters of Israel. A Democrat resolution against anti-semitism inspired by Omar was postponed from a planned vote but it was all watered down- basically.

“And so, I don’t ever want you guys to worry about me. Truly. You know Rashida sent me a text message. She said, “I know you told me you survived war and you’re tough but I at least want to come and give you a hug.” And I said I don’t need a hug but I truly did survive a war (???).

“I am fine. I know what my mission is. I know what my purpose is. I know that as long as I breathe that I will continue to make people uncomfortable in the best way possible. So, you can send me your prayers and whatever support that you see fit. But I don’t ever want you to lose sleep about an article you read about me.”

Every time I worry about her and the ugly attacks, I remember what she said to me two months ago: “I survived war, I can survive this.””
