Ilhan Omar Deletes 2013 Post That Revealed Her Father’s Name


  • During the early morning hours Tuesday, Rep. Ilhan Omar deleted a 2013 tweet saying that Nur Said is her father.
  • Omar was married to a man named Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, who may be her own brother. In Somalia, one’s name is normally a first name, the father’s name, and then the grandfather’s name.
  • Other family members have also tried to scrub social media evidence.

Rep. Ilhan Omar early Tuesday morning deleted a 2013 post that said her father’s name is Nur Said.

“Happy Father’s Day to my aabo Nur Said, I am forever grateful to Allah for giving me the best father a…” the Minnesota Democrat said in the June 2013 post.

Omar’s spokesman, Jeremy Slevin, did not answer questions from the Daily Caller News Foundation about why a congresswoman would try to erase the identity of her father from the internet. But the name of the man who Omar married under unusual circumstances was Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, adding to evidence that she married her brother.

  1. Hank Johnson wonders how the Chapel didn’t tip over with all the wedding guests having to sit on the one side.

  2. Might be more than that going on. Perhaps they dont want anyone to research what grandpappy Nur Sa’id Elmi was up to, say, thirty years ago.

    Lot of bad things happened in Somalia that caused the dictator Mohammed Siad Barre to be deposed. The word genocide can be applied to at least one of those things. And Gramps was a functionary of some kind for Siad Barre

    And then, just a few years later, the whole family needs to flee the country. Hmmmm.

  3. Scrubbing social media will not keep it secret from an official investigation.

    IF there is an official investigation, and that’s a big if.

  4. BTW, when I was stationed at Ft Bragg a few lifetimes ago, I was scheduled to go on a junket to fabulous Moqdishu, gateway to the Hobyo Shrublands and points beyond

    The whole junket was scrubbed at the last moment, as things started going a little south for Siad Barre. Just my luck

    But that’s how I know a thing or two about this Allah forsaken place

  5. Hmm, what can her father do to restore his family’s honor? What does the Koran, Hadith, Sura, and Sharia say he can do? Oh! I know!
