    Ilhan Omar Told High School Students an Untrue Story About Racial Injustice

    Ilhan Omar Told High School Students an Untrue Story About Racial Injustice

    “I’m not sure. … The details might not have all matched, but that’s what I remember”

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) told students at a high school in Minneapolis a tragic story of an African-American woman sentenced to jail time for stealing a loaf of bread to feed her starving granddaughter.

    Now she is admitting she may have fabricated some details.

    Grayce McCormick writes at the Washington Examiner:

    Ilhan Omar confessed to embellishing a story she told to 400 high school students

    Rep. Ilhan Omar confessed to falsifying a story she shared in front of about 400 students at Richfield High School in Minneapolis.

    The anecdote was from Omar’s days of working for a Minneapolis city councilman five years ago.

    She described a “sweet, old … African American lady” who got arrested for stealing a $2 loaf of bread to feed her starving 5-year-old granddaughter and spent the weekend in jail.

    Omar said she attended the courtroom when the woman was brought in, and yelled, “Bulls—!” when the woman was fined $80 she couldn’t pay.

    After the congresswoman’s speech, for which she was 30 minutes late and cost the students their lunch period, the Washington Post investigated the claim.

    “I’m not sure. … The details might not have all matched, but that’s what I remember,” the Minnesota Democrat said in an interview. “She might have had a prior [arrest].”

    Even the Washington Post story, which is mostly a glowing profile, threw a skeptical eye on her account:

    Omar’s story echoed the plot of “Les Miserables.” If true, it is also probably embellished. 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.

    Twitchy has collected some responses to the Free Beacon report on this:

    Ilhan Omar could so quickly tell an amazing pro-American story based on her experience of coming here as a refugee and eventually winning a seat in Congress. Instead, she seems hostile to America, despite everything it has done for her.

    An “untrue story”.
    WOULD SOMEONE PLEASE SAY LIE?
    Why the tiptoe around the word lie?
    A lie, is a lie, is a lie.

    More troubles for Gomer….er….Omer……

    Foreign-Born Woman Who Might Have Committed Immigration Fraud Turned Congresswoman Now Demanding That Advertisers Boycott Speech She Doesn’t Like

    Rep. @Ilhan Omar …. is ironic given her 2016 letter to a judge asking him to go easy on an ISIS terrorist.
