Ilhan Omar defends her 9/11 comment with outrageous comparison to George Bush, then gets absolutely torched on Twitter!

This morning Ilhan Omar defended her “Some people who did something” by comparing herself to George W. Bush.

The comparison was to Bush’s comments just days after 9/11 as he stood atop a pile of rubble and declared “I can hear you, the rest of the world hears you, and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!”

She doesn’t even include the full context of his comments, as I showed above. She just chopped up his sentence to suggest she was doing the same thing that Bush did just days after 9/11. And then asks what if Bush were a Muslim who said that?

How dishonest!

This was only days after 9/11 when the country was still trying to wrap their minds around what happened. We were still trying to figure out who’d perpetrated this horrific act on American soil. And Bush was in the midsts of these courageous first responders who were still digging through rubble looking for people that survived, trying to comfort and encourage them as well as the nation as a whole.

Omar made her offensive comments at CAIR while extolling the virtues of a group who’s been found by a court to have supported the terrorist group Hamas in the past.

It’s not even close to the same thing. Not even in the same universe.



Let me just say that her tweet above did not go over well on Twitter as many were outraged.

Here’s a few responses:

If Omar truly loved America she would not constantly seek to undermine every thing this country holds dear. She ran for congress with an agenda in mind and it’s becoming clear that she is nothing more than a bigot.

Did anyone that voted for that muslim think she was going to do anything to build-up America? Shows you how dumb some voters are. Many of us knew she was going to try and disrupt/destroy anything she could “legally” now that she’s a Representative. Personally I’m tired of her and her antics….she’s disgusting and I fear there’s going to be more muslims in Congress in the coming years because liberals and Dimocraps don’t see anything wrong with what she’s doing.

The audacity for some Muslims to claim to be victims because of 9/11! And I can’t forget the bending over backwards by the Bush government, schools/academia to ensure that no one insults Muslims. To the point that schools in some states like CA introduced curriculum to teach kids about Islam and even to point of citing and memorizing koranic verses! Instead of putting blame on the terrorists, they blame everyone else! Stop giving this scum and her other two cohorts any attention. They are terrorist sympathizers.

I am dead serious. People do not get it. The Founders pushed all their chips on a responsible, moral, accountable, self-determined People to run this nation. They had this delusion that people want freedom and liberty and autonomy. They were wrong. Turns out, that’s only a few people among a sea of fools.

People want to be subjects. They WANT someone to tell them what to think, what to do. So precious few of us want independence. I used to believe it was more than that. In the last several years, I have been viciously and painfully corrected in that belief.

Why do you think I want an asteroid to hit this planet? Humanity deserves it.

Your beef with Trump has been how he has carried himself and how immoral you feel he has been. I presented the election of 1800 as proof that even the founders of this country had the ability to act like complete ass-hats and could lose their morality in their attacks on each other.

It’s not a beef with Trump, and again I said nothing about elections.

It’s a beef with the electorate. An electorate who consistently votes against their own rights and liberty. An electorate who wants to be subjects. The Founders relied on the People to build this country and make it great. The people failed.

I know you said nothing about elections. Once again, I used the election of 1800 as an incident of previous mentioned behavior.

As far as the electorate, we gave congress, courts, presidents, and agencies too much power long ago. This isn’t new. But to be honest, we’ve never really lived in bad times. The depression changed peoples minds about what govt. should provide. But it’s been that way since Lincoln. Nonetheless, still the best country ever.

I didn’t say it was a bad country. I said it was a bad society. I said that the American people are a dumpster fire that want to be subjugated and told what to think and what to do. They hate their independence and consistently vote against it. They whine about their elected officials, but then abdicate themselves of any responsibility for them by pretending they “didn’t have a choice.” Horseshit. The American people are simply to weak, cowardly, and unprincipled to use what the Founders gave them.

Sorry you’re dense. Look back at your post about “love child”. You posted about supposed similarities between Omar and Trump, suggesting they have a love child due to their similarities in Twitter. Basically you were trying to show the similarities between Trump, who most people like, and Omar who most people don’t. I presented a similar juxtaposition between Reagan, who many people have a favorable opinion of, and FDR, who many have an unfavorable opinion about. It’s not f*cking rocket science.

You will always find AOC, I-ham Omar and Rashide Tlaib sticking up for one another because all three of them were recruited to the positions they are in by the anarchist, anti-American group, Justice Democrats. It is essential for all Americans to read about this group and to scrutinize such people before electing them.

Let’s call a spade a spade. Omar is a radical Muslim promoting the deadly ideology as much as she can. As we know that this religion/ideology is not compatible with any other ideology or religion, she should be stopped at her track right now.

If we look at the Dems and the SJW community there’s very little to no push back. But if we look at most Republicans, conservatives, patriots and most sane Americans Omar stands about as much chance as a snowball in a furnace of ever getting re-elected. The best case scenario though would be to see her little Sharia-loving behind deported right back to Somalia since she finds America so offensive.
