She fled war-torn Iraq for a better life in America, and now Sarah Idan is ready to do battle here — against the woke Democrats she says have turned the country upside down

“There’s a voice missing. There’s the immigrant who f—ing suffered and came here and lived the American dream,” Idan, 33, said this week on the 20th anniversary of the Iraq War.

The one-time beauty queen — who represented Iraq in Miss Universe in 2017 and faced death threats after befriending and snapping a selfie with Miss Israel -— aims to throw her tiara in the ring for a California congressional run, she told The Post.

Idan has yet to file paperwork with the Federal Election Commission.

However, she claims her first campaign will be removing “crazy far left and woke voices” in her own Democratic party obsessed with “white privilege.”

“Shut up, because you have no idea how privileged you are,” she said.

The beauty queen has blasted Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar for her incendiary comments about Jews and Israel.

“I don’t stand for your anti-American, antisemitic, Muslim Brotherhood agenda, using this democracy to further your…Islamic socialism goals of dividing and weakening our country,” Idan tweeted.

“I would just be the opposite of Ilhan Omar. I’m a Democrat and liberal, but I don’t think like you, I don’t hate this country,” she noted.

Born in 1990 in Baghdad, Idan recalls her family “living as hostages under Saddam” with limited access to food, water, and electricity, and fearing accusations of “disloyalty.”

“We couldn’t say anything against him. I learned everything I was taught by Saddam was a lie,” she recalled.

When Idan was 18, she volunteered as a translator for the U.S. Army in Iraq and became an American citizen in 2015.

In 2017, she represented Iraq in the Miss Universe pageant after Iraq’s 45-year hiatus from the contest.

“They hate when I say anything good about this country, when I say I love it and have rights here. They want to hear you say, ‘No, this is a horrible country, a horrible government, and we have no rights,'” she said.  

“They’re bitching about everything and playing the victim all the time, just shut up,” Idan added.

Idan recalled an argument she had with a “hardcore Democrat” friend, who told her to “go back to Iraq.”

“They couldn’t handle me saying good things about this country,” she said.

“The left isn’t doing enough … We need fresh people in office to take out the communists, pushing crazy policies,” said Idan.

On Twitter, Idan wrote, “Seriously @IlhanMN this is your intellectual come back?
I said as a MUSLIM! I dont stand for your anti-American, anti-Semitic, Muslim Brotherhood agenda using this democracy to further YOUR & YOUR FRIENDS Islamic socialism goals of dividing & weakening our country. @SaraCarterDC.”

“I may have been born in Iraq, but my soul is American,” Idan added.
