Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar has given a sharp rebuke to an audience member who asked her to condemn female genital mutilation. ‘How often? Should I make a schedule? Does this need to be on repeat every five minutes? Should I be like, so today I forgot to condemn al-Qaida, so here’s the al-Qaida one. Today I forgot to condemn FGM, so here we go. Today I forgot to condemn Hamas … You know, I mean, it is a very frustrating question that comes up,' she said at a conference on anti-Muslim rhetoric. ‘If you want us to speak as politicians, American politicians, then you treat us as such’

One thing the left media left out of all of this was as follows.

1) In Ilhan’s state, FGM *is* an issue, particularly in the Somali community.
2) The question was asked by a Muslim, the panel was all Muslim, the event was organized by Muslims

Ilhan was not singled out as a Muslim. She was singled out as a legislator with a reasonable stake. (link: https://twitter.com/nowthisnews/status/1153779208289751041) twitter.com/nowthisnews/st…

So how can she claim its an appalling statement, when clearly some want them to be openly speaking out against FGM. How is that wrong when it actually sends a message it is wrong. This is why Ilhan, is utterly dishonest and manipulative and has the media in the palm of her hand. Another one that is as hateful and vile as Trump. What has to be asked next and if it is going on in her state and in the somali community. Then why on earth is she not speaking out?
