Ilhan Omar calls question on FGM ’appalling’ and ’frustrating’

Rep. Ilhan Omar called a question from an audience member on female genital mutilation ’appalling’. Visibly irritated by the question, Omar said, ’How often? Should I make a schedule? Does this need to be on repeat every five minutes?’, when asked by an audience member to make a statement on the issue. She pointed to bills her name was on as evidence of her stance against FGM.

She wants to embrace and exalt her ancestry and ethnicity at every opportunity. Then gets mad when people ask about it. Makes perfect sense...

Oh you mean like Trump never being asked to denounce the KKK or white nationalism or racism? Yes clearly a racist and islamaphobic double standard. I feel sorry for poor Omar she is clearly a victim.

I am pretty sure if there was evidence of a white politician having married their sibling to commit immigration fraud, there would be questions!

no doubt. if a person makes their faith/color/gender/etc a central focus of their identity, then it makes perfect sense to apply characteristics of that identity to the person.

So she's unrepentantly Muslim but wonders why people think she's a terrorist? Gee... Maybe she has to add more fiber to her diet. That constipation has gone straight to her head.

Saw this documentary about FGM in Somalia while researching a novel. Health complications, hygiene complications, pregnancy complications - you name it. The only upside to the procedure seems to be that you will get married easily, if that is any consolation at all.

If anyone sees this as a relevant or acceptable question then you should also be ok with Christian politicians having to constantly condemn mass genocide, child molestation, slavery ect. you know shit that's in the bible.

How dare you ask me to defend the barbaric aspects of a medieval culture I unquestioningly represent and cover for, that's plain rude.
