Controversial Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) has once again managed to enrage Americans, as the freshman congresswoman referred to the terrorists that perpetrated the 9/11 attacks as simply being “some people” who “did something.”
Omar made the remark at a event for Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said at the event.
Ilhan Omar mentions 9/11 and does not consider it a terrorist attack on the USA by terrorists, instead she refers to it as “Some people did something”, then she goes on to justify the establishment of a terrorist organization (CAIR) on US soil. pic.twitter.com/ixP3BJfqxS

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (D) called out Omar’s previous anti-Semitic trope, “all about the Benjamins” in referring to some members of Congress being bought and paid for by the pro-Israel group, AIPAC.
Omar’s string of anti-Israel tropes, and now this highly insensitive and pro-Al-Qaeda statement has painted a very disturbing pattern of behavior, and could bring to question her overall mindset.
