Ilhan Omar is a Democratic member of the Minnesota House of Representatives, representing District 60B. She was first elected in 2016. Omar was the first Somali muslim legislator elected to office in the United States.
Omar recently announced that she will be seeking election to the U.S. House to represent the 5th Congressional District of Minnesota. The seat is currently held by Keith Ellison, but earlier this month Keith announced he would not be seeking reelection, but instead he is running for Minnesota Attorney General.
Omar is Anti Israel and she’s not afraid to admit it. In a tweet she once wrote:
“Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
On Omar’s social media accounts, she has a photo of herself with Terrorist sympathizer, Linda Sarsour.
Some reports claim that Omar married her own brother. I have yet to confirm if true (though I wouldn’t be surprised).
Omar seems to be some type of “Somali hero” to some people. She was on the cover of TIME magazine in the “Firsts” collection: “TIME Firsts: Women Leaders Who Are Changing the World.” Someone made a ‘hijarbie’ doll after Omar. Omar was in one of Adam Levine’s music videos, along with Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez and others.
The fact the Omar has already won the previous election she ran in and with her popularity rising, I’d say she has a good chance of winning, which is not good for America. If you live in her district, be sure to vote against her!
Officially filed to be on the ballot for US Congress to represent #MN05. I look forward to carrying on Congressman Keith Ellison’s legacy. We have hard fights ahead and I look forward to fighting alongside the residents of District 5. pic.twitter.com/gfViWmILHd

In spite of the misguided #SCOTUS decision today, we’re committed to renewing our fight to move our state and country in a direction of inclusivity, acceptance, and justice. #NoMuslimBanEver pic.twitter.com/yv2taCO32N

I am hurt by the Supreme Court decision to uphold President Trump’s Muslim Ban today, but I’m not surprised—elections have consequences.
