The legend of Rep. Ilhan Omar continues to grow with a disgusting example of just how far that the controversial freshman is willing to go to make her case that America is a racist country.
The Somali-born Omar clearly despises the country that took her in as a young refugee and despite her personal success in her adopted home, hates America, believes that America is a racist nation and is determined to undermine it.
In the latest news about this foul woman, it has been revealed that she fibbed to 400 high school students who she regaled with a story about a “sweet, old… African-American lady” who was thrown into jail for stealing a $2 loaf of bread to feed her starving grandchild.
The Omar story was her attempt to convince impressionable young people that their country was racist and took place five years ago when she was still a member of the Minneapolis city council.
Only the story was hogwash according to an unlikely source normally friendly to the extreme leftists, the Washington Post which did some digging.
Omar’s tale appears to have been taken from Victor Hugo’s literary classic ‘Les Misérables’ which was also made into a big budget movie.

Rep. Ilhan Omar once told a group of high school students a story in which she claims she witnessed America’s injustice and racism, but after Washington Post reporters discovered the story could not have happened the way she told it, the congressman admitted she distorted the details.
The Washington Post reports that Omar was speaking to an audience of 400 high school students when she told of visiting a Minneapolis courtroom, where she witnessed a “sweet, old … African American lady” who spent the weekend in jail for stealing a $2 loaf of bread to feed her “starving 5-year-old granddaughter.” After the woman was fined $80 for the crime, Omar said she couldn’t control her emotions and yelled, “Bulls–t!” in the courtroom.
“Omar’s story echoed the plot of ‘Les Miserables.’ If true, it is also probably embellished,” wrote Washington Post reporters Greg Jaffe and Souad Mekhennet. “City officials said that police aren’t allowed to arrest people for shoplifting unless there’s a likelihood of violence or further crime. Typically, shoplifters are sentenced to attend a three-hour class.”
When the reporters confronted Omar about these details, she said she may have flubbed some facts. The woman convicted of the crime “might have had a prior [arrest],” Omar said. “I’m not sure. . . . The details might not have all matched, but that’s what I remember.”
When pressed, the 37-year-old congresswoman fessed up that she may have “flubbed” the facts but being a serial fabricator has become a virtue for members of a political party gone mad over a lost election.
Despite her lying and anti-Semitic, anti-American, race-baiting demagoguery, Rep. Omar continues to be sought out by the media which continues to give her and fellow freshman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the rock star treatment.
But others who are willing to risk the wrath of the mob call it like it is on Omar and one of them is Fox News host Tucker Carlson who took her to the woodshed.
"[@IlhanMN] became a member of Congress, elected by voters who were proud to see an immigrant succeed.

And of course, there will be no consequences for Omar’s lies, just as there were none for her blatant anti-Semitism which thanks to the cowardice of her own party leaders like Nancy Pelosi, she didn’t receive so much as a slap on the wrist for.
