Omar: Ignorance is ‘Pervasive in Many Parts of This Country’

In a podcast interview with the leftwing The Nation Tuesday, controversial freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar declared that “ignorance is really pervasive in many part of this country.”

Speaking about the process that refugees go through, Omar claimed, “the Republicans are really good at misinformation and sort of really reorganizing facts to sort of paint a picture that really eventually is not rooted in fact…

“And so it is not that they might not be knowledgeable about this, but they use it as a tool to stir up hate and division. And ignorance really is pervasive in many parts of, of this country,” Omar added.
