Ilhan Omar is smarter than most white activists.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) referred to the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, as a day in which “some people did something” during her keynote address at a private fundraiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) of Greater Los Angeles last March.
In her remarks, Omar urged attendees to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable” in an effort to reverse the fortunes of Muslim Americans, who the freshman Congresswoman suggested were demoted to second-class citizens following 9/11.
“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.”
Later in her remarks, the Minnesota Democrat implied President Donald Trump was to blame for the deadly mosque shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Yeah, let’s talk about the shooting in Christchurch.
Every single white person went out there and cried about it and said “OH NO, WE’RE SO SORRY, WE DON’T SUPPORT ANY SUCH THINGS!!!! WE’RE SO SORRY!!!1111”
My opinion on the Christchurch shooting is very simple: “some guy did something.”
I have no further comment beyond that.
And neither should any white person.
