Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, two Muslim women who were elected to Congress in 2018. Both have expressed anti-Trump, anti-Israeli, and practically anti- American views, given their affiliation with the left.
But recently both of them have made controversial remarks regarding 9/11.
Earlier this month, Omar stated that “CAIR (the Council of American-Islamic Relations) was founded after 9/11, because they recognize that some people did something, and then all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”
She also blamed the Donald for the mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand, even going so far as to accuse him of fueling hate against Muslims.
Naturally, all of her statements are incorrect.
First, CAIR was formed in 1994, seven years before 9/11.
Second, the people who did something were nineteen terrorists responsible for nearly 3,000 deaths on 9/11.
Third, no Muslims in the United States (nor any other Americans for that matter) were deprived of their civil liberties, or even started to lose access to them.
Fourth, the Donald had nothing to do with the mosque shootings in New Zealand, nor did she incite hatred towards Muslims. In fact, the gunman (Brenton Tarrant) was both a white supremacist and an environmentalist, not to mention being a big fan of Communist China (despite their poor environmental record). So basically he was another Jared Loughner, the individual who shot Congresswoman Gabriel Giffords and several other people in 2011, and was inspired by Adolf
Hitler’s Mein Kampf and Karl Marx’s The Communist Manifesto.
Meanwhile, Tlaib has recently claimed that she become involved in politics out of the fear she had of Americans after 9/11. She even said “I was probably my second year in law school when 9/11 happened. And I was – I was really terrified of what was going to happen to my husband, who’s only a green card holder at the time.”
First, she needs to improve her grammatical skills (e.g. I was probably my second year in law school; my husband, who’s only a green card holder at the time).
Second, she should be able to remember what year of law school she was in at
Third, what made her think that her husband would be deported? Did the
authorities suspect him of being a terrorist?
Fourth, it is likely she was planning to get involved in politics before 9/11, considering that she earned a B.A. in Political Science from Wayne State University in 1998, and went on to earn a J.D. from Western Michigan University’s Cooley Law School in 2004.
Fifth, American Muslims had little to fear from to other Americans after 9/11, given the politically correct atmosphere.
At any rate, both of these women need to be voted out of office next year.
