Controversial Democrat Ilhan Omar has caused outrage by downplaying the 9/11 attacks

Radical Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has caused outrage after she downplayed the 9/11 attacks while giving a speech at an event for a terrorist-linked organization.

Democrat Omar trivialized the deadliest terrorist attack in U.S. history during her recent appearance at an event for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — a group designated by the United Arab Emirates as a terrorist organization.

At the event, while speaking about 9/11 - which killed approximately 3,000 American citizens - Omar dismissed the terror attacks by downplaying it as "some people did something."

"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," Omar said.

According to the Daily Wire, Omar was met by hundreds of protesters when she attended the March event in Los Angeles, who expressed strong disapproval of her use of anti-Semitic tropes and promotion of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

Omar responded to the "very interesting" pro-Israel demonstrators by saying: "I don't think any of them realize that people like myself and many of the people in this room could care less about what they have to say."

Here are some of the responses that Omar's comments received online:

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX): "First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as 'some people who did something'. Unbelievable."

Allie Beth Stuckey: "This is FAR WORSE than any misconstrued and decontextualized comments Candace has made, and yet will receive a polite nod and a golf clap from leftists."

Paul Sacca: "'Some people did something' sounds like a bake sale, but it does not really sound like a terrorist attack that killed 3,000 people and altered the NYC skyline forever..."

Gad Saad: "Am I allowed to post this snippet featuring Noble @IlhanMN without also criticizing Israel or in the spirit of fairness I should always criticize Israel when pointing out the love, peace, and tolerance of Noble Ones?"

It is worth noting that Omar has taken a lot of heat in the past after she advocated for leniency in the sentencing of men who were convicted of trying to join ISIS.

Last week, Omar urged the Trump administration to try to get a senior member of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood (MB) released from prison in Egypt.
