Omar Says 9-11 was just “Some People Did Something.” Newsweek puts Her On Their Cover
Rep Ilhan Omar continues to generate major controversy, after a video of her remarks at a recent CAIR event surfaced in which she described 9-11 as “some people did something.” Does murdering nearly 3,000 people count as “something?” For her remarks of anti-Semitism and Jew-hatred, Newsweek put her on their cover with the notation that she is “changing the conversation” on Israel.
Update: on April 11, the NEw York Post took issue with Omar’s remarks with their cover:
Normalizing and even elevating an anti-Semite is a new low even for Newsweek. It’s been a shame to see a once decent publication devolve into such a clickbait rag. https://t.co/CMAiFCq4Jg— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) April 9, 2019
Yeah, working hard to produce anti-Jewish sentiments within the Democrat party. But her remarks about 9-11 did not go unnoticed, and several called her out for them. Rep Dan Crenshaw, Donald Trump Jr, and GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel among the many others.
First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as “some people who did something”.— Dan Crenshaw (@DanCrenshawTX) April 9, 2019
Ilhan Omar isn’t just anti-Semitic – she’s anti-American.— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) April 9, 2019
Nearly 3,000 Americans lost their lives to Islamic terrorists on 9/11, yet Omar diminishes it as: “Some people did something.”
Democrat leaders need to condemn her brazen display of disrespect.pic.twitter.com/k3meEbUOAk
I see that the head of the Farrakhan Fan Club, @IlhanMN, took a short break from spewing her usual anti-semitic bigotry today to accuse a Jewish man of being a “white nationalist” because she apparently has no shame. https://t.co/y96IG8E7Y6— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) April 8, 2019
An anti-Semite labeling a Jewish person a “white nationalist” is peak Leftism. https://t.co/45WQfxdRaQ— Erielle Davidson (@politicalelle) April 8, 2019
Yes, Omar called one of Trump’s Jewish advisers, Richard Miller, a “white nationalist.” She continues to spew and despite the petition that is calling for her removal from Congress, she’s still there thanks to Democrat cowards who won’t do anything real. The so-called censure of her anti-Semitism turned out the opposite because of that cowardice.
Omar is also a former “acolyte” (according to the NY Post) of Louis Farrakhan who is a notorious anti-Semite. Did you know that she believes that Jews have mind control abilities and are evil? Then there’s her “fan,” Farrakhan, who specifically told her not to apologize for her anti-Semitic comments about AIPAC.
Her latest stupidity arose when she asked Donald Trump to help free a Muslim Brotherhood leader when Egyptian President Al-Sisi visited the White House this week. Egypt considers the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.
She is beginning to tread on thin ice with her rhetoric. Guess we’ll see what happens.
