Otherwise I don't think she would have received the necessary means for her to succeed as she has so far in her political career.
Here's an important anecdote kind of about this...
We are good friends with a conservative Hindu couple. So conservative, in fact, that I have heard them passionately defend the caste system as an isntitution that should continue indefinitely. Yet, they were both ready to vote for Hillary Clinton, an egalitarian and distinctly pro-LGBTQ candidate.
I asked them how they, as conservative Hindus, can support lefties that advance a very progressive doctrine on equality and sexuality, and I asked... Is this because you don't really view yourselves as Americans in any conventional sense, and do not see how what's happening to the core of American society and culture doesn't matter to you, because India is your society, and the American society is separate?
And they said "yes," and kind of laughed abotu it, a bit embarrassed.
They do not see the LGBTQ thing as something for Hindus, but at something for white & black Americans who are... y'know, actual Americans.
It doesn't concern them.
They feel about American drug addiction problems and the sexual revolution the same way that an American would feel about the massive prostitution & drug crisis in the Philippines...
"Well, I guess that's kind of sad, kind of a big thing... IDK, how's trade look with them? How much would it cost for me to buy a beach house there? What are hotel prices liek? How's the food..?"
Perhaps Ilhan Omar and the Somalis in her base feel exactly like this...
Omar has to say a bunch of dumb, extra stuff to address the concerns of the Americans,
but we should just keep behaving as we usually do.
