The New York Post on Thursday called out Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for downplaying the terror attack of September 11th, 2001, publishing a front-page photo of the World Trade Center engulfed flames.
“Here’s your something,” the Post’s headline reads, with the sub-header: “2,977 people dead by terrorism.”
The front page cover is a direct rebuke of Omar’s recent remarks at a private fundraiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) of Greater Los Angeles in which she described 9/11 as a day in which “some people did something.”
Omar urged attendees of the CAIR gathering to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable” to combat what she described as Muslim-Americans being treated as second class citizens following the terror attacks.
“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,” said Omar, without offering any evidence to back up her claim. “You can’t just say that today someone is looking at me strange, that I am going to try to make myself look pleasant. You have to say that person is looking at me strange, I am not comfortable with it. I am going to talk to them and ask them why.”
