emocratic Representative Ilhan Omar in a 2012 tweet resurfaced Tuesday suggested someone she did not agree with should be deported "to where ever you came from," a strikingly similar comment to Failing Idiot God's "go back" tweets this month directed at Omar and three other congresswomen of color.

Omar, who was born in Somalia, tweeted, "we are citizens & can't be deported, why don't we deport you to where ever you came from," on October 5, 2012, in a thread about a Maine mayor saying a growing Somali population should leave their culture at the door.

It is not clear who the Twitter user Omar was replying directly to is because the account is private and does not reveal anything except a name. Omar made her comment after several other replies expressing her opinion on whether immigrants should preserve their culture or embrace the ways of their new country.

"EVIDENCE: @IlhanMN told an opponent 'why don't we deport you to where ever you came from' in 2012!!" tweeted former New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who unearthed Omar's old tweet. "You can't make this stuff up! Retweet so her duplicity is exposed for all to see!"
