At The American Spectator, R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. tells readers that CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, is “unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorist financing case involving the Holy Land Foundation.” If you aren’t aware, Rep. Ilhan Omar was speaking to a CAIR audience when she famously described the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something.” Tyrrell writes (abridged):
If a politician of Japanese extraction were addressing a “largely Japanese-American audience” and characterized the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor as “some people did something,” would you think that those words diminished the loss of life and of property suffered by our country 78 years ago in the Pacific Ocean? I would, but apparently Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) would not.
She thinks it is a perfectly respectful — and accurate! — way to refer to the 9/11 attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C. by 19 Muslim terrorists in 2001. She characterized the 9/11 attacks in this way just last month to a largely Muslim audience saying, “some people did something.” What the terrorists did, for those who might have forgotten, was murder 2977 people, injure countless thousands more, and cause billions of dollars of property loss.
The Hon. Omar who is Muslim spoke of the 9/11 attacks in this vague and anodyne way for a political purpose. She was speaking to a meeting of CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) and she went on to say that, “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something [italics added] and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.” As a matter of fact, CAIR was founded — for whatever reason — 17 years before 9/11 and since 9/11 there has been no discernible loss of “access to our civil liberties,” by which I assume she means Muslim Americans. Incidentally, CAIR is not a widely recognized humanitarian group, as its name would have you believe, but an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorist financing case involving the Holy Land Foundation.
Now, of course, the Hon. Omar is not a very well-informed person. Not only does she not understand what she is talking about, but when she talks she mangles the English language. She is a perfect representative of the Democrats’ core constituency, the moron vote.
I am not the only American who has had enough of this Congresswoman from Somalia and her defenders in the Democratic Party. We shall see you Election Day 2020.
