  • Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was reportedly sent a threatening note and package with a “suspicious substance” in the mail, prompting a police response.
  • “The Patriarchy will rise again. Merry f****** Christmas,” the note reportedly read.
  • “They can send the threatening e-mails, phone calls and packages to distract us but nothing will ever slow us down as we serve the people of #MN5. I survived war, I got this.” -Ilhan Omar

Graig Graziosi from The Independent writes:

“Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was reportedly sent a strange and threatening package in the mail on Tuesday, prompting a police response.

According to Ms Omar, someone sent a package to her office that contained a “suspicious substance” and threatening note.

“The Patriarchy will rise again. Merry f****** Christmas,” the note read.

Ms Omar said that the authorities were notified and that she and her team were unharmed.

“Everyone on our team is okay. We reported the package to Capitol Police and they determined it to be safe,” she wrote.

Politico reported that the US Capitol Police responded to the scene and determined that the package was “negative for anything hazardous”.

Later that day, Ms Omar issued another tweet seemingly referencing the package.

“Three committee hearings, three votes, interviews, rallies, meetings and our day isn’t even halfway done,” she said. “They can send the threatening e-mails, phone calls and packages to distract us but nothing will ever slow us down as we serve the people of #MN5. I survived war, I got this.”

Ms Omar is often the target of conservative harassment due to her inclusion in “The Squad” and the fact that she is a Muslim, an immigrant, and a woman…”
