2020 Dems Side With Controversial Rep. Ilhan Omar Over Despicable 9/11 Remarks

Democrats are in complete lockstep with their defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar over her latest controversial outburst and that is especially the case with many of the contestants who are competing for the party’s presidential nomination next year.

Despite the simple fact that Omar just can’t keep her mouth shut and spare her party the indignity of having to defend her anti-Semitism and other insulting remarks, there is no distance between those seeking to run the country if they can beat President Trump.

The Somali-born freshman’s latest firestorm was set off when during a speech to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) which have been widely interpreted as being disrespectful if not dismissive to the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

According to Omar:

“Here’s the truth: Far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen. And frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it”

“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.”

She then doubled-down by trying to suggest that what she said was nothing that then-President George W. Bush didn’t say:


There is an unwritten rule in politics that “when you find yourself in a hole, stop digging” but Omar continues to ask for a bigger shovel and her bigotry and hatred for the country that took her in as a refugee continues to be enabled by top Democrats.

Via Politico, “2020 Dems defend Rep. Omar from Trump amid controversy over 9/11 remarks”:

Several Democratic 2020 hopefuls have come out in defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) after conservative media and President Donald Trump attacked her for comments they portrayed as minimizing the September 11 attacks.

Omar has reportedly since received death threats for the remarks, but her fellow Democrats were quick to denounce Trump for going after Omar and taking the comment out of context.

“Ilhan Omar is a leader with strength and courage. She won’t back down to Trump’s racism and hate, and neither will we. The disgusting and dangerous attacks against her must end,” Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders tweeted Friday.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren both condemned the attacks against Omar as not only dangerous for the congresswoman, but Muslims in the U.S. in general.

“President Trump’s inflammatory and dangerous rhetoric towards Ilhan Omar is jeopardizing her safety. He is deliberately putting her and all Muslim Americans in harm’s way,” Inslee tweeted Friday.

Warren also tweeted Friday in a similar vein: “The President is inciting violence against a sitting Congresswoman—and an entire group of Americans based on their religion. It’s disgusting. It’s shameful. And any elected leader who refuses to condemn it shares responsibility for it.”

POLL: Do you stand with TRUMP in his fight for the border wall?

Whether Rep. Omar has actually received “death threats” as per the party talking points is likely viewed by many with appropriate skepticism in the aftermath of the Jussie Smollett hate hoax.

And some chatter from the “kid’s table” field of candidates:

The grandstanding is just more hypocrisy from the left who never expressed much outrage when a lunatic Bernie Sanders supporter attempted to massacre the entire Republican congressional baseball team when they were at practice in 2017 after he was pushed over the edge by Democrat and media hate mongering.

There should never be any doubt as to which side that these radicals are standing.
