Ilhan Omar’s speech to CAIR has sparked fury in the conservative world, because she supports the islamo-leftist organization and its shadowy goals. Marina Medvin at Townhall opines:
Ilhan Omar’s diminutive words “some people did something” were more than just a slap in our American faces; these words were salt on the gaping 9/11 wound that will never heal for as long as we shall call ourselves American. But concentrating on the pain of our wound has led us to ignore the larger problem before us: why did Omar downplay Islamic terrorism against Americans while simultaneously decrying terrorism against Muslims abroad? Why did Omar lie about CAIR? What is the driving force behind Ilhan Omar?
Every word out of Ilhan Omar’s mouth from her speech at CAIR was an affront to Americans, and the story she is selling is an Islamic terrorist white-wash lie.
“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said.
Islamic terrorists (“some people”) killed thousands of Americans in the name of Islam (“did something”) for their Muslim leader Osama Bin Laden, who CAIR, a designated terrorist organization with ties to terrorists throughout the world, tried to shield from American bad press prior to the attacks and defended as innocent following the attacks. (There, I fixed it for you, Ilhan.)
Omar values CAIR because she doesn’t support the glorious history of America, only her sectional interest – even if it clashes with American society. You can read the entire oped here.
