Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) finally responded to a family member of a 9/11 victim who shamed her with words and the t-shirt he was wearing at a 911 memorial.
If you can believe it, she actually made it worse for herself. She is now claiming she is the victim. This is a bridge too far even for Ilhan Omar. Impeach Omar, leave Kavanaugh alone.
“9/11 was an attack on all Americans. It was an attack on all of us, and I certainly could not understand the weight of the pain that the families of the victims of 9/11 must feel,” Omar said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“It’s important for us to make sure that we are not forgetting the aftermath of 9/11, when many Americans found themselves now having their civil rights stripped from them, and so what I was speaking to was that as a Muslim, not only was I suffering as an American who was attacked on that day, but the next day I woke up as my fellow Americans were now treating me as suspect,” she added.
“I don’t remember where I was when I first heard that quote ‘some people did something,’ but it tore my heart apart and it tore my mom’s heart apart with the thought that such a great loss to individuals could be so insensitively expressed. That hurt. I am a victim’s son, and I decided to take 9/11 as my one day, of perhaps, credible standing to make that statement, which many people have told me, it represented their views,” Nicholas Haros Jr. said.
“I am here today to honor my 76-year-old mother, Frances, on the solemn 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Mom, we always miss you and love you very much,” Haros said.
“This day I also remember over 200 personal friends and co-workers that I knew that died.”
“‘Some people did something,’ said a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota to support and justify the creation of CAIR. Today I am here to respond to you, exactly who did what to whom,” he added.
“Madam, objectively speaking we know who and what was done, there is no uncertainty about that. Why your confusion?”
“On that day 19 Islamic terrorist members of al Qaeda killed over 3,000 people and caused billions of dollars in economic damage. Is that clear?”
“But as to whom? I was attacked. Your relatives and friends were attacked. Our constitutional freedoms were attacked.
“And our nation’s founding on Judeo-Christian principles were attacked. That’s what some people did. Got that now?”
“We are here today congresswoman to tell you and ‘the squad’ just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please.”
