Omar Called Out At 9/11 Memorial

For those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001, the pain will never go away. And when a politician like Ilhan Omar casually dismisses that pain, she should expect that those words and actions will follow her forever.

Remember how Omar flippantly described the 9/11 attacks as “some people did something“? Nicholas Haros, Jr., remembers.


And not only did he wear that T-shirt, he had some choice words for the congresswoman as well.

There is a reason that we take pause on this day, read the names of the dead, and mourn. It is because people like Ilhan Omar can be called out for their shockingly heartless words and deeds. It is because people like Ilhan Omar can be called to account for their flippant cruelty in dismissing the lives of nearly 3,000 people as “some people did something.” Omar is a politician; she knows how to say all the right things on Twitter when she has to. The problem is that we have heard so much vile ugliness out of her mouth that even when she says the right thing, it feels like insincere lip service.

But don’t worry, the New York Times is trying to give Represenative Omar a solid assist today. First, they were called out for making it sound like airplanes have minds of their own.


And it wasn’t just the tweet. The NYT had to rewrite the lede of the story as well, because that exact same wording was found in the story itself. Wow. It’s almost like the NYT isn’t pointing out who attacked us on 9/11 because they feel it isn’t politically correct to do so. This sounds oddly familiar… as in, the exact same way that they are ignoring anti-Semitic attacks on New York Jews because the attackers aren’t “politically correct.”

And then the NYT published an editorial today. While this may be a worthwhile editorial, did they have to publish it today?


There were horrible moments after 9/11 where innocent people were attacked or murdered over mistaken identity. But that, and this editorial, are stories for tomorrow. Not today.

Today is about the nearly 3,000 people who got up in the morning and went to work, or boarded a plane, or responded to an emergency. They never came home from work. The planes never reached their intended destinations. Those heroes who ran into burning buildings to save others did not make it back out. Today is the day to mourn and grieve the unlimited human potential of so many lives that were extinguished 18 years ago. And if those who lost a loved one want to set the record straight, be it through words on a T-shirt or words in a microphone, then let it be known that Ilhan Omar completely earned the smackdown that she received today.

    No doubt, Omar was not there. She and Tlaib were at a 9/11 celebration party. “We got 3,000 of those bas—-ds, only a few hundred million to go!”

    the effects of Islamophobia on American Muslims post-9/11
    F* them. If they want to not be criticized as a group, then they can damn well point out the sharia-loving, infidel-hating bastards among them.

    I believe some are doing exactly that. But not enough. And not enough speak up (or we can’t hear them, at any rate) about anti-Americans like Omar and Tlaib and the CAIR a*holes.

    That’s not fear of islam speaking. It’s realism.
