(Tea Party PAC) – Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is not someone that you’d expect to mourn 9/11. After all, to her, as she has well demonstrated to is, it was just a time that “some people did something” that made Muslims more marginalized.
Nonetheless, she’s a politician, and, clearly trying to be politicianey, she issued a tweet marking the 18th anniversary of the horrific 9/11 terrorist attacks that took a markedly different tone than “some people did something.”
“September 11th was an attack on all of us. We will never forget the thousands of Americans who lost their lives in the largest terror attack on U.S. soil,” she wrote.
“I will continue to fight to make sure we care for the first responders and families who lost loved ones. #NeverForget,” she added:

In March, Omar gave the keynote address to a CAIR fundraiser in California, reminiscing about the founding of the Islamist apologist organization as being in response to 9/11, when “some people did something.”
Clearly, what was more important to Omar after 3,000 people lost their lives due to the ruthless attacks against our nation, was that some of the members of our nation’s Muslim population may have gotten dirty looks.
Granted, it’s certainly not fair to assume that every Muslim is a terrorist considering there are many different sects, but let’s put things in perspective here, Ilhan.
She was clearly far more concerned about feelings than by the grotesque loss of life, and her comments reflected that. After all, she began by encouraging Muslims to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable,” as Breitbart News reported.
“I say raise hell, make people uncomfortable,” Omar said. “Because here’s the truth. For far too long, we have lived with the discomfort of living as second class citizens and I’m tired of it.”
“CAIR was founded after 9/11, because they recognize that some people did something, and then all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar told the group:
Well, Omar got slammed on 9/11, by the son of a victim of 9/11, no less, as Breitbart reported:
“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 said.
“Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done. There is no uncertainty about that,” he continued.
“On that day, 19 Islamic terrorists, members of Al Qaeda, killed over 3,000 people and caused billions in dollars of economic damage. Is that clear?” he asked.
“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?” he continued.
“We are here today, Congresswoman, to tell you and the ‘Squad’ just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please,” he added:
"'Some people did something' said a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota…Today I am here to respond to you exactly who did what to whom."
