Embattled Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was thrust into the national spotlight earlier this week after President Trump told “radical Democrats” they can leave the United States if they don’t “love our country.”
The President was referring to Omar’s vicious rhetoric on the 9/11 terror attacks, al Qaeda, Israel, and more.
“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognize that some people did something,” said Omar.
“Every time the professor said al Qaeda, his shoulders went up… Al Qaeda, you know. You don’t say America with an intensity, you don’t say England with an intensity, you don’t say an army with an intensity,” she told an interviewer.
“If you ask anybody walking on the side of the streets somewhere in the middle of the world, they will tell you America the great, but we don’t live those values here. That hypocrisy is something I’m bothered by,” said Omar on another occasion.
“Nobody wants to face how the actions of the other people that are involved in the world have contributed to the rise of radicalization, the rise of terrorist acts,” Omar told reporters.

A NEW LOW: Omar Compares Her 9/11 Comments with Famous Bush Speech, Asks of W. ‘Downplayed Attacks’
Controversial Rep. Ilhan Omar stunned Americans on both sides of the political aisle Friday; comparing her previous comments on the 9/11 terror attack with George W. Bush’s address from the rubble of the World Trade Center.
“’The people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!’ President George W. Bush. Was Bush downplaying the terrorist attack? What if he was a Muslim?” posted Omar on social media.
