Not only have her words “some people did something” on that date been assailed all over the internet, but now one of the old guard online publications as gone out of its way to make an example of the follower of Islam.

Yes. Some people did something alright. They destroyed the World Trade Center and killed almost three thousand Americans.
“How pathetic: A member of Congress can’t acknowledge what happened on one of the most horrific days in US history,” The New York Post Editorial Board wrote. “Some people did something? Wow. What a way to describe the heinous surprise attack on America that claimed 3,000 lives.”
At the March 23 event, Omar said: “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.”
The Post’s Editorial Board noted that “CAIR wasn’t founded post-9/11, but in 1994. And the feds later named it an unindicted co-conspirator in a plot to steer US funds to the terror group Hamas.”
“Yet Omar upped the obscure-the-facts ante Wednesday, declaring criticism of her ‘some people did something’ line to be ‘incitement,’ on the grounds that she has received death threats,” The Post’s Editorial Board concluded. “Huh? She’d rightly be outraged if anyone minimized those threats as merely ‘some words from some people.’ Omar’s cavalier brushing off of the murder of thousands of innocents on 9/11 should shock all Americans, Muslims included.”
Shock and anger all Americans is what Omar did with her careless dismissal of one of the most horrific days in American history, still fresh in the minds of those of us who were glued to televisions and radios that day trying to figure out what was going on. Omar would do well to understand that if she thinks she is going to continue to represent Americans in any way shape or form.
