The New York Post was not going to let Rep. Ilhan Omar off easy for trivializing 9/11, which nearly killed 3,000 Americans.
The Post, depicted the burning Twin Towers, quoting Omar, “some people did something.”
The New York Post issued a scathing rebuke of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) with their Thursday cover and editorial after Omar described the September 11, 2001, Islamic terror attacks that killed thousands of Americans as "some people did something."
Omar made the remarks, which sparked widespread outrage, during a March 23 speech at an event for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — which the United Arab Emirates has designated as a terrorist organization. Omar has since bemoaned criticism of her from Fox News and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) in response to her remarks by alleging that they were engaging in "dangerous incitement" against her.
The New York Post responded to Omar's comments by making this the feature story in their Thursday publication with a cover photo of the World Trade Centers under attack on September 11, 2001, and with a headline that stated: "Here's your something.”
"How pathetic: A member of Congress can’t acknowledge what happened on one of the most horrific days in US history," The New York Post Editorial Board wrote. "Some people did something? Wow. What a way to describe the heinous surprise attack on America that claimed 3,000 lives."
Omar’s buddy, Rashida Tlaib was not happy the cover.
Tlaib accused The Post of spreading “hate and endangering” Omar’s life.
“The NY Post knows exactly what it's doing - taking quotes out of context and evoking painful imagery to spread hate and endangering the life of Rep. Omar. Shame on them, and shame on Rupert Murdoch,” Tlaib tweeted.
It’s funny how the left is claiming conservatives are taking Omar’s quotes out of context. But in the video below, she clearly said described 9/11 as “some people did something.”
