posted by Hannity Staff - 4.11.19

Freshman Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib defended her Democratic colleague Ilhan Omar’s controversial remarks regarding the 9/11 terror attacks Thursday; saying she was intentionally being “policed” because she’s a “woman of color.”

“You think her words are being taken out of context, and you’re comfortable with what she said?” asked a reporter from MSNBC.

“Yeah, I’m not for policing people, that’s what they’re doing to us women of color. This is a diverse class. They’ve never had two Muslim women. They’ve never had a Palestinian-American, they’ve never had a woman who’s a refugee,” said Rep. Tlaib.

“It’s an institution that just isn’t ready for people like us,” she added.

Rep. Ilhan Omar found herself at the center of another national controversy this week after footage emerged of the freshman Democrat referring to the devastating 9/11 terror attacks as “some people” who “did something.”

“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognize that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” said Omar while speaking with supporters.

“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something,’” wrote Rep. Dan Crenshaw on social media.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw issued a fiery response to Ilhan Omar’s vicious comments Wednesday after she accused the Texas lawmaker of “inciting” violence against the controversial Congresswoman.

“1. I never called you un-American.
2. I did not incite any violence against you.
3. You described an act of terrorism on American soil that killed thousands of innocent lives as ‘some people did something.’ It’s still unbelievable, as is your response here,” tweeted Crenshaw.

Omar found herself in hot-water -yet again- this week after footage surfaced of her referring to the devastating 9/11 terror attacks as “some people” who “did something.”
