Ilhan Omar Surrounded By Anti-War Protestors Are Her Own Event

( )- Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar was surrounded by anti-war protestors at a town hall event in Richfield, Minnesota last week. The far-left congresswoman was lambasted for supporting measures to send billions of dollars to Ukraine in what the protestors saw as support for the war.

“Both parties are for war, so what difference does it make?” a protestor reportedly shouted at Omar to which she replied that she was “anti-war” and suggested that if he was dissatisfied with the two-party system he should vote Independent.

“$80 billion to Ukraine is not anti-war,” the protestor replied, adding that Ukraine was “killing its own citizens.”

“We are helping people survive war,” Omar hurled back. “We are helping little children like me that haven’t been helped—”

“You’re pressing the big red button” the protester interrupted. Omar then attempted to correct him on her efforts to save the millions of people who have been displaced as a result of Russia’s invasion.

“There are little children whose lives are being lost,” she shouted. “You can sit here and talk, but unless you are someone like me that has been that child, you do not get to tell me what my votes mean and how I get to vote in supporting people who desperately need support right now.”

Omar was referring to the time when she and her family escaped Mogadishu, Somalia when the civil war broke out. She arrived in New York in 1995 and obtained U.S. citizenship in 2000, at 17 years old, before getting into politics a decade later.

The protestor then interrupted the event again and blamed the war on the United States.

“It is sad and dangerous for you to say a war that has been waged by Russia was started by the U.S.,” Omar replied, then telling the man, “I hope that you find the help that you need.”

Omar is not the only squad member to have protestors shouting at her for her over the war in Ukraine. Two protestors confronted New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez mid-October for her support in sending billions of dollars to Ukraine.
