You have to forgive embattled freshman socialist Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN). She knows not what she does.

During a recent panel at the left-wing Netroots Nation conference, Omar blasted Americans born in America as less patriotic than people like her who were not born in America.

From Free Beacon:

Omar participated in a foreign policy panel at the liberal Netroots Nation conference in Philadelphia when she made her comment. Omar began her remarks by making light of her past anti-Semitic comments and the backlash that has resulted from them.

“It is that I am anti-American because I criticize the United States,” Omar said. “I believe, as an immigrant, I probably love this country more than anyone that is naturally born and because I am ashamed of it continuing to live in its hypocrisy.”

She went on to talk about how people ask her why she can’t be “more like an American,” noting how it “used to be a very positive thing.”

While speaking at an event organized by Black Lives Matter, Omar screeched about America not being the country of “white people.”

Sounds a little racist, no?

She noted, “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.

WATCH:

Her tweet about the Notre Dame Cathedral fire in Paris has some claiming she just offended Christians worldwide.

Airline Kicks Family Off Flight After Toddler Removes Mask During Asthma Attack

Unbelievable.

Published

At times, it is easy to see why some of us are losing faith in humanity as a whole.

Somewhere in the mix, we’ve all turned cold and calculated.  Mathematically prepared for litigation at all times.  We’re robotic in our understanding of the rules and consequences, but all the while shunning common sense and the idea that decency often depends on extenuating circumstances.

Such was the case this week on an American Airlines flight.

A mother and her 2-year-old son were forced to deplane an American Airlines flight on Monday after the child would not keep a mask on.

Amanda Pendarvis posted to her Instagram story that she, her young son and her mother were removed from the flight. Pendarvis said her son was having an asthma attack at the time.

Flight 1284 returned to its gate at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport before departing for Colorado after the party refused to “comply with crew member instructions to remain seated while on an active taxiway and to wear face coverings securely over their nose and mouth,” American Airlines said in a statement to FOX Business.

The company attempted to shift the blame in a statement.

The airline said crew members were never made aware that the child was having an asthma attack or issues breathing. Additionally, the passengers were not addressed for failure to comply with face-covering requirements at any point while administering treatment, according to the carrier.

The move comes amid a heated national debate on COVID-19 precautions, and among a populace who is growing ever more irate with the idea of remaining masked indefinitely.

The nation has been gripped by a strange and potentially tragic story about a couple, their cross-country road trip, and now a mission young woman.

Gabby Petito was traveling from coast to coast across America, chronicling her “vanning” lifestyle on social media, all with her partner Brian Laundrie.  At some point during the trip, Gabby stopped posting and Brian came back home.

And that’s all we really know.  Brian, on the advice of his lawyers, is not cooperating with police or Gibby’s family.

Now, her parents are publicly pleading with Brian for help in bringing their daughter home.

Gabby Petito’s stepfather, Jim Schmidt, called out his stepdaughter’s fiancé for not cooperating with authorities or assisting the investigation.

“You say she’s the love of your life. She’s missing. You were on a trip with her, but you have no comment. You have nothing to say and you’re hiding behind an attorney,” he told Fox News on Thursday.

“I understand the constitutional rights that people have, but you have pieces to this puzzle that we need to find Gabby and you’re withholding them from us.”

Police have revealed that the two were in contact with police during their trip, after a domestic argument resulted in a call to local law enforcement.

The silence of Laundrie has been a sharply criticized decision, and many around the country find the choice to be a vile one.
