Ilhan Omar accuses critics of ‘dangerous incitement’ for correctly quoting her 9/11 comment

As we and others reported yesterday, Ilhan Omar, the newly-elected anti-Semitic Democrat from Minnesota who seems to have a soft spot for terrorists, told attendees at a CAIR gathering that “some people did something” on September 11, 2001, when terrorists killed some 3,000 innocent people.  This angered quite a few people, including GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw, who responded.

Naturally, this prompted Omar to play the victim card, accusing critics  of “dangerous incitement” for daring to quote her accurately.

“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something’. Unbelievable,” the former Navy SEAL said on Twitter.

Fox News also took her to task:

Omar responded:

Twitchy, noting that words are apparently “hard” for Omar, said “…to suggest that quoting her constitutes ‘incitement’ is pretty outrageous even for her.”

Moreover, she wants “leaders of both parties” to condemn quoting her accurately.  She can’t have it both ways, but will no doubt exercise her liberal privilege in an effort to get it.

Well, she’s addressing party leaders, but yes, that’s exactly what she wants.

Sadly, in the age of leftist authoritarianism, that’s probably what will actually happen.

Welcome to “1984.”
