Here’s a blast from the recent past. Snopes.com, attempting to verify or refute the statement that Omar engaged in immigration fraud, suggested earlier this year that Omar is lying about her marriage history. And Snopes declared the claim that Omar committed immigration fraud to be “unproven”, rather than false as it does with lies.
As more and more people examine this matter the truth will emerge. At that point the Ilhanomaniacs will declare that it doesn’t matter whether Omar engaged in immigration fraud, just as they now claim it doesn’t matter that a state agency fined Omar for diverting her campaign funds to her own personal use. Remember how Omar initially claimed that accusations that she diverted campaign funds to her personal use were a result of anti-black and anti-Muslim prejudice? The Ilhanomaniacs claimed to believe that. Not one of them has come forward and admitted that they were wrong, that Omar did in fact steal campaign funds to pay for, among other fraudulent purposes, a trip to Florida and accountants fees to pay for her personal tax returns.
Do not let the Ilhanomaniacs fool you. Ilhanomaniacs don’t care whether Omar engaged in immigration fraud, diverted campaign funds to personal use, made antisemitic statements, or falsely and knowingly filed joint tax returns with a man she was not legally married to.
Ilhanomaniacs don’t care. Their defenses of her repeated outrageous conduct are not statements of fact that the Ilhanomaniacs believe. Rather, they are simply an attempt to silence her critics and get them to go away by calling her critics “racist”, “right-wing” or even just “conservative”.
Ilhanomaniacs are in some way worse than Omar. Omar cannot help being a lawbreaking lunatic. But what excuse will those who vote for Omar in 2020 have?
Why did Omar’s 2016 campaign literature reference Ahmed Hirsi as her “husband” when she hadn’t yet divorced Ahmed Elmi or married Hirsi? Why did Omar say in her 2017 divorce filing that she’d had no contact with Elmi since June of 2011 when she was seemingly photographed with him in London in 2015? Why has Elmi not put the matter to rest by coming forward and explaining the nature of his relationship with Omar?
Perhaps Ilhan Omar has something untoward related to her marriages that she’s covering up.Bethania Palma, “Did U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar Marry Her Brother?“, Snopes.com, February 15, 2015
