Ilhan Omar Compares U.S. Army To THIS

Has she lost her mind?

President Donald Trump defended his criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar and the far-left “Squad” on Monday, claiming that Omar had commended Al Qaeda, the terrorist organization responsible for the assaults of Sep. 11, 2001.

Trump said:

I mean, I look at the one — I look at Omar — I don’t know, I never met her.  I hear the way she talks about al Qaeda.  Al Qaeda has killed many Americans.  She said, “You can hold your chest out, you can — when I think of America…huh…when I think of al Qaeda, I can hold my chest out.”  When she talked about the World Trade Center being knocked down, “Some people.”  You remember the famous “some people.”  These are people that, in my opinion, hate our country.

So when — when I hear people speaking about how wonderful al Qaeda is, when I hear people talking about “some people” — “some” people with the World Trade Center — “some people”?  No, not “some people.”  Much more than “some people.”

And politicians can’t be afraid to take them on.  A politician that hears somebody, where we’re at war with al Qaeda, and sees somebody talking about how great al Qaeda is — pick out her statement — that was Omar.  How great al Qaeda is — when you hear that — and we’re losing great soldiers to al Qaeda.

When you see the World Trade Center gets knocked down, and you see the statements made about the World Trade Center — all the death and destruction — I’ll tell you what: I’m not happy with them.

Omar had an chance to clear the air, but declined to condemn Al Qaeda (or communism, another alleged association) at Monday’s “Squad” press conference, stating, “I will not dignify [the claim] with an answer.”

The president appears to have misinterpreted comments Omar made in 2013, in a video that emerged nearly six months ago (and which was ignored by the mainstream media until now, when it could be used to dispute Trump).

The most shocking claim Omar made in the interview with a local Minnesota television program was that U.S. foreign policy was responsible for acts of terrorism such as the Westgate shopping mall terror attack in Nairobi, Kenya, by the Somali terror group Al-Shabaab, who killed 71 people, mostly civilians.

Omar also drew a moral equivalence between radical Islamic terror and “the violence that is done [by] the West,” which she said that the U.S. and other countries had “legitimized.” However, Omar did not actually endorse acts of radical Islamic terror, or praise Al Qaeda or other organizations.

Instead, she complained that American Muslims were expected to denounce those acts of terror, and that the Arabic names of terror groups were emphasized.

In the course of that complaint, she described a class on terrorism that she took at college. Laughing, she described the posture of her professor when he would say the Arabic names of terror groups, saying that “every time the professor said, ‘Al Qaeda,’ he, sort of, like, his shoulders went up.” He did not do the same when describing “the Army,” she said, suggesting the professor was prejudiced.

That appears to be the origin of President Trump’s distorted quote that she said, “When I think of al Qaeda, I can hold my chest out.”

Omar’s remarks can be seen in the video below at 17:00:

Trump was on firmer ground when he criticized Omar’s recent comments about the 9/11 attacks.

In a speech in March to the Los Angeles chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Omar complained about prejudice against Muslims. She said: “CAIR was founded after 9/11, because they recognize that some people did something, and then all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

The phrase “some people did something” was widely interpreted as downplaying the severity of the attacks, as well as the role of radical Islam as the motivation.

CAIR itself has a disturbing record on radical Islam — particularly in Southern California. As Breitbart News noted:

In 2007-8, CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the terror financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development. That case, in turn, led the FBI to discontinue its work with the organization. In 2009, a federal judge ruled that the government “produced ample evidence to establish” the ties of CAIR with Hamas, the Palestinian terror organization. The United Arab Emirates labeled CAIR a terrorist organization in 2014 (a decision that the Obama administration opposed).

In 2015, CAIR’s Los Angeles director suggested that the U.S. was partly to blame for the San Bernardino terror attack, in which 14 people were killed, due to American foreign policy. CAIR also offered legal assistance to the family of the terrorists who carried out the attack.

Still, minimizing or excusing radical Islamic terror is different — morally and factually — from supporting it outright.

  1. If for nothing else she should be tried and convicted for treason and for violation of her oath of office, and being responsible for the deaths of all who died for this great nation for her rhetoric denouncing America the way she does, along with or three coming to sisters in Congress all of them if the founding fathers were alive today or even Abraham Lincoln would have gotten the firing squad and would be justified, for what they have done and said to this country

  2. I gave up a piece of my life and some body parts defending America in the Naval Amphibious Forces. That was long time ago. I still limp and I hurt every day. I’m not complaining. Now we have a ding bat idiot from Minnesota and her three fellow travelers that want more illegal immigrants in America. Shut down the damned borders. now! My Grandfather came here from Ireland in late 18 hundreds. He didn’t even get a free potato. He worked on railroad all of his life. These four women just want more welfare. Close the damned borders NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Actually, PO, they want POWER. They want the power to open up OUR Country to ANY Muslim to come here and commit Jihad, declaring that we are now a caliphate, like Southern Europe was after the Ottoman invasions. They want to be President, Speaker of the House, and want to RULE Us. RULE US! We must NOT forget that there is no RULE here, that WE ARE the GOVERNMENT. You and I must VOTE THEM OUT!

  3. Omar is a product of the Clinton/Obama (especially the imposter Obama) when they overlooked vetting any of the Somalis, etc. that infected our country. Her affiliation with al Qaeda, CAIR and who knows what other terrorist groups proves where her allegiance lies and it is definitely NOT the United States. She should be expelled from congress and indicted for treason against this country.

    1. I agree! I work in a building that has a bunch of them, what a nightmare. They are pigs in the restroom and they expect someone else to clean up after them.
      I don’t they have given us much to like. What they believe doesn’t fit with the American culture.
      Do you know who Les Wexner is? He owns the Limited and Victoria’s Secret, he is Jewish and has had to redo the restrooms because of the Muslim men that work at the warehouse. They added sitz baths and foot baths. When the men first started working there they would flush their paper bags down the toilets. It makes a mess.

  4. Why she is still on the Foreign Affairs Committee boggles the mind. She must be removed. This committee controls the funds to Israel

  5. She’s ungrateful GRUNT that needs to be IMPEACHED and IMPRISONED in her own DEPLORABLE COUNTRY of SOMALIA !She’s ungrateful HYPOCRITE :)) And the DEPLORABLE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE NASTY NANCY PELOSI just loves the
    HELL out SQUAD no mistake.. That’s why she doesn’t do anything about their BRAINSTORMING ..She’s a FRAUD and FOOL just like them.

  6. If you refuse to denounce 9-11, you are saying it was OK with you. ALL Americans should denounce 9-11, which was a terrorist attack on our country. It is a matter of either being with us or against us. She is against us and has clearly stated so many times.

  7. Why do we not hear of impeachment for this unAmerican congress person. She brings shame to the Democrat Party and shame to the House of Representatives, and to her congressional district.

  8. Didn’t 911 teach us anything about these Islam vermin?? I mean really they have already told us they will kill all infidels and they will rule the world. And yet we just let them infiltrate us and let them do just what they say they will.

  9. So, America is responsible for the terrorist attacks all over the world? We are not sponsoring parades everywhere glorifying Sharia law and the Muslims are inspired to murder as many infidels as possible to compensate for this slight? I think NOT!

  10. These four Women and I am using that title litely for they are a Evil Cancer Matastisizing and must be cut out before they destroy America. They all Four are evil, Anti American Traitors to the core and every person who voted for theses Witches have shown their own ignorance of The Truth. These Four Representative have represented Evil hate filled Enemies of America much more so then the American People. They were given opertunities here they would not recieve in the Ancestoral Countries, yet they each have constantly bitten the hand that fed them. So Ladies go live in your Ancestral Countries since you hate us so, get out!

  11. OMAR just loves those DUMMY’S that knot the Traed Center DOWN.. REMEMBER those infamous word’s ” SOME PEOPLE ” Spoken by a HABITUAL LIAR and a DISGRACEFUL DEPLORABLE DEMOCRAT ! REMEMBER SHE
    HAS A BRAIN TUMOR !

  12. She is a nasty skanky Muslim BITCH. She pushes her chest out when Al Qaeda kills America,,,stick your chest out and let them use it for target practice you anf the Muslim Brotherhood aka CAIR!

  13. Omar is bragging about the terrorists that burned her countries men and women to death in cages, cut off heads, hands, peckers, raped, and did anything you can think of, like bring down the Twin Trade Towers in New York City. Now, do you really believe she needs to be re-elected or impeached for being totally un-American and hating our armed forces. Omar, lets meet and talk on TV………. cause you are a sad human being?

  14. I still think that she and her comrades are just a distraction to keep people from seeing what the rest of Congress is doing (or not doing) and it keeps President Trump busy warding off these evil little people !!!
