Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar is facing backlash after her speech at a Muslim rights group’s event in which she described the September 11, 2001 terror attacks as “some people did something.”

Omar spoke at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser last month, where she called upon other Muslim Americans to “make people uncomfortable” with their activism and presence in the society and criticized the Jewish state.

But another part of the speech surfaced on social media earlier this week, in which Omar described the terror attacks perpetrated by al Qaeda.

“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 at the event.

This woman is truly a despicable person.

Clearly she is an enemy to this Great Nation

How many people find Ilhan Omar's comments acceptable?

Would you find it acceptable if someone described Pearl Harbor as "some people did something"?

Nope, but I'm glad to see she's concerned about her demographics civil rights in this country since they don't have much of that where they came from. OK maybe I smell a little hypocracy there.

Omar is one of the big "mistakes" voters made in electing her. She's not the only one, but you have to ask: What were the voters thinking?

One thing that seems to be true: Omar and those like her, are assuring another Trump victory in 2020.

Omar is a fool and extremely insensitive. Crenshaw lost his eye fighting in the ME. I actually like Crenshaw. He is young but professional. He sure has not spewed idiocy in his freshman position.
