Today is the 18th anniversary of the deadliest terror attack on United States soil, and as is tradition, the victims of 9/11 were memorialized in New York City. One man stood out among the rest, though, with a speech he gave condemning Somali-born Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who has consistently showed leniency towards radical Islamic terrorists.
Wearing a black T-shirt emblazoned with the words “some people did something,” a slender middle-aged man stepped up to the podium.
“Listen,” he began solemnly. “Some people did something? “I am here today to honor my 76-year-old mother Frances 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.”
The unidentified man then listed names of a few personal friends who died on that fateful day in 2001.
But then the mood of the speech changed, as he tore into Omar, clearly distraught at her cavalier attitude toward the horrific events of the day.
“‘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.
He paused for a moment as the crowd applauded.
“Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done,” he said. “There is no uncertainty about that. Why the confusion? On that day, 19 Islamic terrorist members of al-Qaeda killed more than 3,000 people and caused billions of dollars of economic damage. Is that clear? But as to whom: I was attacked, our 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? We are here today Congresswoman to tell you and ‘The Squad’ just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please. American patriotism and your position demand it.”
As we reported earlier today, we reported on a photo Omar posted to Instagram last night, on the eve of 9/11, advising her followers to “never stop laughing.” We also chronicled just a few measures of support she’s show for radical Islamists.
Just two weeks ago, she called for international protection of a Somali telecom company that doubles as a front for terror group al-Shabaab. Almost no one noticed. She refused to condemn al-Qaeda, the terror group responsible for the 9/11 attacks. That shouldn’t be difficult for a member of the United States Congress.
During her time in the State Legislature in Minnesota, she wrote a judge asking for lenient sentences of nine men convicted of providing support to ISIS.
“The best deterrent to fanaticism is a system of compassion,” she wrote. “We must alter our attitude and approach; if we truly want to effect change, we should refocus our efforts on inclusion and rehabilitation.”
“Incarcerating 20-year-old men for 30 or 40 years is essentially a life sentence. Society will have no expectations of the to-be 50 or 60-year-old released prisoners; it will view them with distrust and revulsion,” she continued.
The congresswoman’s support for CAIR has not gone unnoticed, and the man at the 9/11 memorial today made that clear. CAIR is a known affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood terror group, and is itself designated as a terrorist organization in the United Arab Emirates.
Laura Loomer is suing the group for playing a part in her ban from Twitter last November.
