Ilhan Omar Seized Another Opportunity to Remind Everyone How Awful She Is

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) took the opportunity to once again reference 9/11. As if that weren’t bad enough, she did so on Thursday night, hours after an attack in Kabul which resulted in the death of 13 American service members.  


The squad member herself reminded all of Twitter in a now deleted tweet that she made remarks about that solemn date in March 2019 as a day when "some people did something."

Further, she actually doubled down on the remarks when Nicholas Haros Jr., criticized her in a speech he gave at Ground Zero, His mother, Frances, was one of the thousands who died on 9/11. The congresswoman and Haros Jr. more or less left it on a better note, after Omar was repeatedly called out for it. 

And it's also hardly just "the right’s reaction."


In addressing the congresswoman's remarks about 9/11, Margaret Brennan, the host of CBS' "Face the Nation" in an episode from September 15, 2019, asked Omar "do you understand why people found that offensive?"

Her response was rather lackluster, considering there were several uses of "but" in it:

I mean so, 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 victims of the- the families of 9/11 must feel. But I think it is really important for us to make sure that we are not forgetting, right, the aftermath of what happened after 9/11. Many Americans found themselves now having their civil rights stripped from them. And so what I was speaking to was the fact 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 a suspect.

Former Rep. Max Rose (D-NY), who served in Afghanistan, has called his fellow Democrat's comments "insensitive and offensive."


The congresswoman tweeted once on Thursday about the terrorist attack.

It's worth reminding that Rep. Omar has a history of doubling down on her incendiary remarks. In June, she said during an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper that "I don't" when asked if she regretted equating Israel and the U.S. with the Taliban.
