    Thumbs up Rand Paul: Omar deserves 'rebuke over trying to say we have a rotten country’

    Sen. Rand Paul has joined in the criticism of Somalia-born House Rep. Ilhan Omar, and said that she deserves to be rebuked for criticizing the United States, which took her in as a refugee in 1992.

    Paul, of Kentucky, said that he is “dumbfounded” by the Minnesota congresswoman’s “angry story.”

    Speaking back home to Wave 3 News, Paul said, “She has this bitterness and anger toward the country,” adding, “I think she does deserve a rebuke over trying to say we have a rotten country.”

    In joining President Trump in criticizing the Mogadishu-born freshman lawmaker, Paul said “I’m sort of dumbfounded how unappreciative she is of our country.”

    Is Rand the best US senator or what?

    What is there not to like about an angry woman criticizing, scolding, defaming, and essentially calling for your overthrow? The fact that she recently came to America and does it with a distinctive foreign accent and cadence is just icing on the cake.

    You didn't even mention the bigger elephant. I get practicing your religion but wearing a headscarf doesn't seem very pro-woman or promoting equal rights to me.

    I agree with Rand about Omar.

    So why does he support bringing in even more foreigners to tell us how horrible we are?

    She is here based on immigration fraud and she is certainly not a cultural American or seeking to become one.

    And if you look at the policies of the US in Somalia, particularly with propping up the ICU and arming/funding warlords within the region and then couple that with the errant drone and attack helicopter strikes, it is no wonder why many in that area view America in an unfavorable light.

    666 prisoners per 100,000 (ironic).

    2.12 million prisoners (highest in the world)

    Millions of people murdered around the world under false pretenses.

    It's not really all that controversial.

    Her positions deserve particular rebuke because of her selective and hypocritical criticisms and downright economic ignorance.

    What is going on here, is liberal leaning website Snopes pushing fakenews calling a sitting Senator's claim 'false' ?


    https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/omar-rotten-country/



    Did U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar Describe America as a ‘Rotten Country’?

    Comments made by U.S. Sen. Rand Paul in a TV interview became weaponized on social media.



    Rating

    False



    We reached out to Sen. Paul’s office for clarification on his comment, asking which statement or statements of Omar’s he was referencing, and if he was alleging that she literally called America a “rotten country” or if he was characterizing remarks she made as saying as much. Finally, we asked which of Omar’s remarks Paul believed amounted to a description of America as a “rotten country.”
    A spokesperson for Paul did not provide the requested clarification but instead reiterated via email that the senator viewed Omar’s “continued criticism” as “unfair considering how much Rep. Omar has achieved”:

    I see, so what did she say that would give Rand that idea. Do we have it?

    Just read @enhanced_deficit 's post and he doesn't have an answer

    I tend to ignore her and not post all the rotten things she says but she has said many bad things about America, including claiming we are racist.

    Maybe we should send Rand to Mogadishu, that would surely make him more appreciative of how good he has it in the US. I bet he would complain less about the polices in the country. Just imagine the inflation rate in Zimbabwe, he should think about Zimbabwe next time he wants to open his mouth about fed rate cuts or QE.
    Considering that the US is one of the many bad actors that have made places like Somalia terrible places to live yeah send him to see the family members of the people killed by American drones.

    Rand is firmly against foreign intervention, don't be stupid.

    How is that even a response to what I said? The point is the same as it would be with Omar. If both politicians would visit Somalia for a month without any security, both would come back with a greater appreciation of the US govt and maybe just maybe, they would complain a lot less after their visit.

    Btw, Omar is also anti interventionist which is probably the only area where I agree with her.

    If that's what you meant then it's still silly, Rand has great appreciation for America.

    True, but there is no limit to how much one can appreciate this country. I still see him criticizing the US govt which means there is room for improvement.
