Ilhan Omar, defender of terrorists is now comparing detention centers to the slave dungeons in Africa where slaves were kept while awaiting ships to carry them away.
But, let me ask her this.
Did the slaves sneak into the dungeons or were they captured in their homes and were taken there.
To avoid the slave dungeons, Africans would have to fight and risk their lives to remain free. All the illegals have to do is stay home. No one goes into their towns and cities and drag them into the detention centers.
I am also fairly certain that the slave dungeons did not come with TVs and field trips for the kids or ample food and clothing, not to mention medical care. Also, if you were in a slave dungeon, there were only two possibilities, death or enslavement. The worst thing that is done to people in the detention centers is deportation.
Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar stunned audience members this week; directly equating ICE detention facilities with “slave dungeons” in Africa at the height of the international slave trade.
“We arrived in Ghana. One of the first things we did was visit the dungeons. I remember, as we arrived, one of the guides let us into the female dungeon and he started giving us a description of what used to take place as the Africans were being held there as captives,” said Omar.
“Every time he gave a description, I had this flashback to an image that I saw on TV in Libya, where you had Africans in a small room that were now captives. That image was from today,” she added.

This rhetoric is misleading and dangerous. Illegal immigrants entered the country illegally. They broke the law. That wasn’t the case with slaves. That’s an important distinction. pic.twitter.com/eiwJxE5Zp0
Omar defended her previous rhetoric regarding the 9/11 terror attacks over the weekend; saying the US must remember the “aftermath” of September 11th that “stripped” Americans of their “civil rights.”
“Do you understand why people found that offensive?” asked Face the Nation, referencing Omar’s comments that “some people did something.”
“So, 9/11 was an attack on all Americans. It was an attack on all of us. I certainly could not understand the weight of the pain that the victims of the families of 9/11 must feel. I think it’s really important for us to make sure that we are not forgetting the aftermath of what happened,” deflected Omar.
“Many Americans found themselves having their civil rights stripped from them… As a Muslim not only was I suffering as an American, but the next day I woke up as my fellow Americans were treating me as suspect,” she added.
Unbelievable. Ilhan Omar refuses to acknowledge why her flippant description of 9/11 as “some people did something” was offensive and then paints herself as the victimpic.twitter.com/FDOcNbCF42
