Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has also been listening to Rep. Ilhan Omar complain about and denigrate America and he’s got a solution that will likely get him called “racist” by anyone on the left who hears it.
Paul was being interviewed by Breitbart about Omar’s disrespect and Paul told the story of immigrants he’s met who have escaped to America from places that were living hells under dictatorial regimes.
“Most of them are thankful, I’ve met people who have come here from behind the iron curtain that got away from Communism – they’re some of the best Americans we have because they really appreciate how great our country is,” said Paul.
“And then I hear Representative Omar say ‘oh America’s terrible. I’d love there to be justice and there’s no justice here’ and it’s like she came here and we fed her we clothed her – she got welfare, she got school, she got healthcare and then she has the honor of actually winning a seat in Congress and she says we’re a terrible country. I think that’s about as ungrateful as you can get,” continued Paul.
Paul took the position that, while Omar shouldn’t be forcefully sent anywhere, he’d be happy to buy her a ticket to Somalia so she could see for herself just how great she has it here in the states.
“I think she could look and learn a little bit about the disaster that is Somalia that has no capitalism, has no God-given rights guaranteed in a constitution and has about seven different tribes that have been fighting each other for the last 40 years,” continued Paul. “And then maybe after she’s visited Somalia for a while she might come back and appreciate America more.”
I have to agree with Paul on this one, and have written that if Omar is that down on America, then maybe she should indeed go to the place she escaped as a child to see just how amazing it is to be an American.
