It must have been miracle day in the media because a news anchor actually made Ilhan Omar respond to criticism from a 9/11 family, but then she just completely dodges responsibility.
From the Hill:
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on Sunday responded to a family member of a 9/11 victim who called her out on the anniversary of the attacks, saying she intended to highlight civil rights violations.
“9/11 was an attack on all Americans. It was an attack on all of us, and I certainly could not understand the weight of the pain that the families of the victims of 9/11 must feel,” Omar said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“It’s important for us to make sure that we are not forgetting the aftermath of 9/11, [when] many Americans found themselves now having their civil rights stripped from them, and so what I was speaking to was that as a Muslim, not only was I suffering as an American who was attacked on that day, but the next day I woke up as my fellow Americans were now treating me as suspect,” she added.
Ridiculous. Whenever something like this hits a Republican the press hounds them until they are forced to answer. With Democrats this is about as much as you can get out of the mainstream media. I’ll give partial credit for even bringing it up…
