Ilhan Omar get Debunked over her comments on 9/11
Republican chairwoman Ronna McDaniel Reignited controversy over the remarks of Rep. Ilhan Omar on 9/11 after being asked about it on a television interview on Sunday morning.
Omar had made comments before the March American-Islamic Relations Council, saying that the group was “established after 9/11 because they acknowledged that some people did something and that we were all beginning to lose access to our civil liberties.”
Democrats have earlier asserted that Omar’s comments were carried out of context and that Omar was trying to distinguish terrorists from all Muslims, while Republicans criticized her strongly for them.
“Nearly 3,000 Americans were killed by terrorists on 9/11. It shouldn’t be this difficult for Ilhan Omar to understand why her “some people did something” comment was so offensive,” wrote Republican chairwoman Ronna McDaniel in a Sunday Twitter post, attaching a clip of Omar’s Sunday morning interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
“I certainly could not understand the weight of the pain that the victims of the families of 9/11 must feel,” @IlhanMN says, but we should also remember that many Americans had “their civil rights stripped from them” in the wake of the attacks. pic.twitter.com/m6LbX3i2DG

In the interview, the Minnesota Democrat was asked about an incident during this year’s 9/11 remembrance ceremony in New York City in which the son of one of the 9/11 victims had addressed Omar’s previous comments about 9/11.
“Do you understand why people found that offensive?” asked host Margaret Brennan, in reference to Omar’s past remarks.
Omar started her response by acknowledging that 9/11 had been “an attack on all Americans,” and that “I certainly could not understand the weight of the pain that the victims of the- the families of 9/11 must feel. But I think it is really important for us to make sure that we are not forgetting, right, the aftermath of what happened after 9/11.
“What I was speaking to was the fact that as a Muslim, not only was I suffering as an American who was attacked on that day, but the next day I woke up as my fellow Americans were now treating me a suspect,” she said.
