Omar Changes Tune After 9/11 Speaker Slams Her, Americans Give Reality Check

Rep. Ilhan Omar felt the need to change her tune about 9/11 on the 18th anniversary yesterday. “September 11th was an attack on all of us,” Omar said. “We will never forget the thousands of Americans who lost their lives in the largest terror attack on U.S. soil.” This change of heart came as a family member of a 9/11 victim excoriated the Minnesota Congresswoman on live TV at the Memorial. Well, Americans instantly gave her a big reality check. You’ll love this.

Rep. Ilhan Omar acknowledged on the 18th anniversary of 9/11 that the tragic day was an “attack on all of us,” marking a drastically different tone than the “some people did something” remarks she made at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser earlier this year.

“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,” Omar wrote. “I will continue to fight to make sure we care for the first responders and families who lost loved ones.”

Omar’s remarks came about the same time Nicholas Horas, Jr. was slamming her at the 9/11 Memorial ceremony.

“Listen. ‘Some people did something,’” he said, pointing to his shirt.

“I am here today to honor my 76-year-old mother Francis on the solemn 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Mom, we all miss you and love you very much. This day I also remember over 200 personal friends and co-workers that I knew, that died,” he said, before addressing Omar’s callous remarks directly.

“‘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 said, questioning her confusion.

“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 said. “American patriotism in your position demands it. For God and country. Amen.” Horas, Jr. concluded by making the sign of the cross.

Well, Americans aren’t buying Omar’s sudden patriotism and they let her know it. 

Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who accused Bill Clinton of raping her back in 1978, tweeted, “What did you mean by this the day following Benghazi?” Broaddrick added a screenshot of an Omar tweet from September 2012 which reads: “Allu Akbar 🙂 #Life is Good.”

“We see right through you like a piece of glass. You owe us all an apology for that some people did something comment,” tweeted Brandon Tatum, co-founder of the #Blexit movement.

Twitter user “Old Lady Patriot” slammed leftists who accused her of “not living in Omar’s district,” so she had no right to say anything. She responded, “No, I don’t. I live in Brooklyn, NY. I’m the wife of an FDNY first responder who spent months on a pile of rubble at Ground Zero and manning a conveyor belt in Staten Island searching for body parts. That’s what my family dealt with when ‘some people did something.'”

“That’s strange, cuz you come across more like one of the people chanting ‘death to America’,” tweeted Mark Dice, the conservative YouTuber.

“Ilhan Omar, your Tweet is COMPLETE HORSE SH*T. Everyone knows you support terrorism against the United States: you have made that crystal clear. Now, go back to sleeping with married men and your brother,” tweeted Glen Woodfin.

The Minnesota lawmaker came under fire earlier this year after delivering a keynote address at a CAIR fundraiser in March, describing the 9/11 attacks as, “some people did something.”

Omar decried the treatment of Muslims following the deadly attacks by Islamic terrorists who killed thousands of Americans and encouraged Muslims to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable,” as Breitbart 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.

Omar and her defenders have long claimed that her words are “taken out of context.” Really? She’s at a meeting of CAIR, who just happens to be named unindicted co-conspirators to the terror group Hamas by the Department of Justice. That’s the context.

Now we are supposed to take at face value that she has had a change of heart? The Minnesota Congresswoman has a laundry list of scandals besides her anti-American rhetoric. If she had any humility she’d refuse to run for re-election.

Somehow we think that’s not going to happen. So, we beg Minnesotans to do the country a huge favor in 2020 and make sure we don’t have to contend with the Congresswoman from Minnesota ever again.
