Ilhan Omar Claims Only ‘Snowflakes’ Offended by Her Post Mocking Christians
Squad member responds to backlash over viral video
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) responded to the backlash of her post criticizing Christians publicly worshipping mid-flight aboard an airplane, claiming only “snowflakes” were offended.
The squad member responded to a viral video over the weekend that featured Christians singing worship music while in flight.
According to Omar, had the worshippers been Muslim, events would not have unfolded as peacefully.
The clip, which garnered over 30 million views over the weekend, was initially posted by Jack Jensz Jr., the founder of Kingdom Realm Ministries, “who has been assisting Ukrainian refugees in Europe along with his congregation."
I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I am on a plane. How do you think it will end? pic.twitter.com/5696Erwsl5— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) April 17, 2022
Conservatives and Christians immediately pounced on Omar, calling her a bigot.
The congresswoman labeled them “snowflakes” in response.
And the original snowflakes had a complete and glorious meltdown 💅 https://t.co/1t6Jq4OIWM— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) April 18, 2022
Omar was criticized by a variety of conservative figures and pundits, from Rep. Lauren Boebert (D-CO) to former Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan.
If someone yelled Allahu Akbar I’d freak out, YOU’d freak out and ANY Muslim would freak out given the fact we still have many radical Islamists in our religion (Hizbollah, ISIS, Muslim Brotherhood 😏, Hamas etc) all would love to hijack a plane for another 9/11 who we kidding..— Sarai (Sarah Idan) Miss Iraq (@RealSarahIdan) April 17, 2022
Anti-Christian hate? You need to stop projecting your bigotry. Religious bigots like you always think others hold the same hate they have in their hearts.— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) April 18, 2022
It’s Ramadan and I am gonna pray for y’all.
May God cleanse your hearts. https://t.co/QkRb0cXTvt
As Neon Nettle reported:
Omar faced a severe backlash after complaining on Twitter about a video showing Christians singing songs of worship.
The congresswoman posted the video over the Holy weekend and blasted the Christians singing worship music during a flight.
The exact details of the flight, including whether it was a chartered flight, when the video was filmed, and the travel itinerary for the flight are not clear.
"I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I am on a plane,” Omar wrote on the video, which she tweeted out to her 3 million followers on the platform.
"How do you think it will end?”
