Representative Ilhan Omar is known for her anti-American statements and agendas, and it seems that members of the GOP have had enough, introducing a resolution that condemns her actions.
GOP Won’t Let Omar Get Away With Her Anti-American Speech
On July 16, House Republicans took action after Omar told her supporters to begin “dismantling the whole system of oppression,” which basically means all of America to her.
Ilhan Omar is openly calling for "dismantling the whole system," our entire "economy and political systems," which she ludicrously attacks as systems of "oppression."

“We are not merely fighting to tear down the systems of oppression in the criminal justice system. We are fighting to tear down systems of oppression that exist in housing, in education, in health care, in employment, in the air we breathe,” Omar said.
“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,” she added. “We cannot stop at the criminal justice system, we must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”
The resolution was introduced by Andy Biggs, R-Ariz. – and co-sponsored by Reps. Scott Perry, R-Pa., Scott DesJarlais, R-Tenn., Andy Harris, R-Md., Chip Roy, R-Texas, Ted Budd, R-N.C., Ralph Norman, R-S.C., Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., and Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz.
In the resolution, Omar is accused of having “a documented history of expressing anti-American sentiments.”
The GOP called her out for supporting a “Marxist form of government that is incompatible with the principles laid out in the founding documents of the United States.”

Omar Plays the Victim… Typical
In true Democrat fashion, Omar plays the victim instead of the socialist tyrant she truly is. Her office called the resolution a “false smear,” Fox News reported. When you look at Omar’s comments, which are all documented for the public to see, it is clear that there is nothing false in the resolution.
In a Washington Post op-ed, Omar made wild claims that the Republican National Committee and conservatives are blowing her comments out of proportion. She said that the GOP wrongfully accused her of wanting to take down the U.S. economy and governmental system.
“My congressional office and social media feeds were instantly flooded with hate speech, calls for deportation and, as is so often the case, death threats,” Omar wrote.
“As long as our economic and political systems prioritize profit, without considering who is profiting and who is being shut out, we will perpetuate inequality.”
It is telling that a black woman discussing systematic oppression is so triggering to the right. pic.twitter.com/chJtgp5OzP

You can listen to her words and decide for yourself what to believe. Her history of making controversial comments runs deep.
Omar Disregards the Constitution
The resolution accuses Omar and other radical Democrats of “calling for the dismantling of this system of government and supplanting it with a Marxist form of government.”
By proposing this resolution, many Republicans articulate that the congresswoman violates her oath to defend and support the Constitution.
Conservative Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee tweeted that “Ilhan Omar took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution, not shred it. Omar and her Marxist comrades are a threat to our democracy. Omar should resign.”

Omar has made anti-Semitic comments and has trash-talked the country that welcomed her in as a refugee. Her ungratefulness towards the United States makes many Republicans wonder: if she hates America so much, why does she not move back to her war-torn home country of Somalia?
