Ilhan Omar: The Human Collective Requires Us to Speak up When We See Something Wrong

‘When I talk about what we are doing wrong in this country, it’s not because I hate this country’

RUSH EXCERPT:

OMAR: “We is what I expect people to do when I’m talking to them, right, about things that impact me or offend me. And what is important in this conversation is that we separate the land, the people and administrations. When I talk about what we are doing wrong in this country, it’s not because I hate this country, it’s not because I don’t see myself as American, it’s because I love this country and because I am American and because I want it to do better. So when I talk about places like Saudi Arabia or, you know, Israel or even now with Venezuela, I’m not criticizing the people, I’m not criticizing their faith, I’m not criticizing their way of life. What I am criticizing is what’s happening at the moment, and I want for there to be accountability so that the government, that administration, that regime can do better because I believe that we all deserve better and the human collective requires us to speak up when we see something wrong.”
