Ilhan Omar is not the only rising star Democrat to disrespect the memory of those killed on 9/11.
One of the biggest names in the Democrat Party stepped in it with their outrageous comments about America in the wake of that awful tragedy.
And what this Muslim Democrat said about 9/11 will leave you speechless.
Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is the third member of – along with Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – of the self-proclaimed “The Squad.”
The three rocketed to stardom based on their appeal to identity politics, socialist policy agenda, and social media expertise.
Tlaib – along with Omar – has repeatedly found herself at the center of ugly controversies surrounding their old tweets which expressed their anti-Semitic beliefs.
This time Tlaib’s past came back to haunt her in the form of an interview she did with Makers – a media company designed to promote the “women’s movement” that was published on the outlet’s YouTube channel last October.
Tlaib – who is Muslim – expressed that her great fear that day was not the fact that America was under attack, 3,000 of her countrymen were murdered or that no one had any idea if more acts of terror were planned.
Instead, Tlaib revealed that she was most afraid of her fellow Americans.
“I was probably in my second year in law school when 9/11 happened,” Tlaib said. “And I was — I was really terrified of what was going to happen to my husband, who was only a green card holder at the time.”
“I immediately called my brothers and told them to be very careful who you hang out with, telling my sisters, you know, just be real careful out there, and being really afraid of my fellow Americans,” Tlaib continued. “It really pushed me to be more involved, and I got really curious and really angry. And I think that combination got me, you know, in front of a number of issues in the city of Detroit.”
A cornerstone of liberalism is the belief that America is an unjust, racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, colonial power.
The left contends that America is not a force for good and that the institutional racism that drives the American power structure seeks out minorities to oppress.
In that regard, it’s not surprising that Tlaib – who is Palestinian – would automatically default to believe roaming mobs of bloodthirsty bigots would scour the streets for innocent Muslims to exact revenge upon.
These horrible comments about the 9/11 attacks are not the first by a Democrat.
Ilhan Omar recently caused an uproar when she claimed that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were nothing more than “some people did something” which the government used as a pretext to attack the civil liberties of American Muslims.
In both cases, Omar and Tlaib claimed the real victims of the 9/11 terrorists were innocent Muslims in America and not the 3,000 innocents that were murdered that awful day.
