Dem Rep. Tlaib Defends Ilhan Omar’s 9/11 Comments


Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib defended Rep. Ilhan Omar’s 9/11 comments: “She does speak the truth.” Then she suggests that those who are criticizing Omar are racist.

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib told NBC News: “They do this all the time to us, especially women of color. They do that. They take our words out of context because they’re afraid because we speak truth. We speak truth to power.”

“My sister Ilhan Omar, what she was talking about was uplifting people by supporting their civil liberties and civil rights. She has always, always condemned any kind of strategy, especially of a person that is directly impacted by being a refugee herself. She sees what terrorism can do. She sees what violence can do to a whole country, to a whole people.”

It’s so easy to justify anything once you throw down the victim card.

Omar delivered the keynote speech at a fundraiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on March 23. A video from the event was uncovered weeks later where Omar was shown urging Muslim Americans to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable.” Omar faced massive backlash after a part of the speech surfaced where she described the Sept. 11 attacks as merely an event where “some people did something.”

Omar and Tlaib became America’s first Muslim congresswomen when sworn into office in January. Their time in office has been embroiled in allegations of anti-Semitism. More

I just don’t understand the Left’s protection of Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar. Nancy Pelosi needs to remove her from The Foreign Relations Committee. “Raise hell?” “Make people uncomfortable?” We are being conditioned that any criticism of Omar is racist.
