Ilhan Omar dances, celebrates Somali Independence Day, sponsored by ‘face of corporate greed’ Amazon

Wrapping herself in the Somali flag, U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., took to the stage in a joyous manner on Saturday, dancing and celebrating Somali Independence Day.

While there may be a certain irony at play here, given that the former refugee had to flee her country due to war, the greater irony may be what was seen on the back drop: “2022 Somali Week Festival sponsored by Amazon.”

Proud of her appearance at the event, the radical left Democrat shared images and video on Twitter, oblivious to the inadvertent Amazon plug — in July 2020, Omar said Amazon represented “the face of corporate greed,” and fellow squad member U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., also slammed Amazon for it’s “corporate greed” in 2019, suggesting billionaire CEO Jeff Bezos pays workers “starvation wages.”

In Feb, 2021, Omar tweeted: “Jeff Bezos makes over $300 million a day while subjecting Amazon workers of color to brutal working conditions and union busting. This is the face of 21st century greed.”

Yet, there she was:

Among the other sponsors was Comcast, Chase AND Omar’s campaign, Ilhan for Congress — which all but guarantees an appearance, no?

“Every year we close down Lake st. to celebrate Somali Independence Day and celebrating with a sea of Somalis to my favorite banadiri independence song is always special,” Omar tweeted while sharing this video footage:

In another video, Omar boasted about getting husband #3 to dance — this being Tim Mynett, whose political consulting company reportedly received at least $2.9 million from Omar’s campaign over the course of the 2020 election cycle, according to The Washington Free Beacon. In fact, Omar’s campaign provided nearly 80% of the company’s income that year.

So all is well in Omar’s world… or is it? There was also a video of the outspoken lawmaker and her husband being booed off the stage later in the day at a concert in HER DISTRICT:

The embarrassing moment came during Somali singer Suldaan Seeraar’s concert at the Target Center in Minneapolis on Saturday, when Omar went up on stage to present an award to the singer, who was performing for the first time in the U.S., according to Newsweek.

“Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay, we don’t have all night,” Omar told the crowd at one point, as the boos rained down.

Still, much as she does in her political career, Omar ignored reality to put a more favorable spin on the humiliation:
