(Tea Party PAC) – Ilhan Omar has been under fire this week for her recent comments brushing September 11, 2001 off as a time that “some people did something.”
Replying to the President’s Attacks on her abhorrent comment, Omar hit back at the President but still refused to apologize for her comments, made at a CAIR fundraiser in Southern California late March.
Even during her appearance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday, she did not apologize for her comments but rather enjoyed the gushing sympathy from Colbert for the backlash her sickening rhetoric has fced.
She was happy to play the victim.

On Friday evening, Trump posted a video of Omar’s comments, which garnered over seven million views in just 24 hours.
The Democrats, instead of disassociate from this anti-American firebrand congresswoman, are now whining that Omar’s life is in danger.

On Saturday, Omar responded to the president and other critics in a series of tweets, never once expressing regret or explanation for her “solme people did something” comments.
“This country was founded on the ideas of justice, of liberty, of the pursuit of happiness. But these core beliefs are under threat. Each and every day. We are under threat by an administration that would rather cage children than pass comprehensive immigration reform.”
“An administration that would rather give billionaires tax breaks than provide a little cushion for working people. An administration that would rather attack fellow Americans who are transgender and wear our country’s uniform than fight for equality and opportunity for all.”
“I did not run for Congress to be silent. I did not run for Congress to sit on the sidelines. I ran because I believed it was time to restore moral clarity and courage to Congress. To fight and to defend our democracy.”
“No one person – no matter how corrupt, inept, or vicious – can threaten my unwavering love for America. I stand undeterred to continue fighting for equal opportunity in our pursuit of happiness for all Americans.”
“Thank you for standing with me – against an administration that ran on banning Muslims from this country – to fight for the America we all deserve”
Thank you for standing with me – against an administration that ran on banning Muslims from this country – to fight for the America we all deserve.💪🏽

Earlier in the week, she pathetically tried to tie comments Bush made in which he threatened to make those who planned the attacks pay for what they did to her own (no, it didn’t make any sense.)
“The people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!” President George W. Bush
Was Bush downplaying the terrorist attack?
What if he was a Muslim 🤔 https://t.co/XMazssoD49

The media has been more than happy to portray all this as racism.
