Just when you thought it couldn’t get ANY worse: Ilhan Omar quotes Bush about 9/11 to defend herself and HELLO BACKFIRE
And we thought Rep. Ted Lieu was having a bad week … holy cow.
What in the WORLD was Ilhan Omar THINKING with this?
“The people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!” President George W. Bush

Did she really say that? For real? Seriously?!
Omar argued that even a “good Muslim” may find roadblocks in the United States and that that was the moment to stand up for one’s rights. “Once you are willing to stand up for yourself … then others will show up for you,” she said. She ticked off several examples, such as a Muslim being unable to find a place to pray in a hospital, even in “a country that was founded on religious liberty.”
“To me, I say, raise hell,” she said. “Make people uncomfortable.”
You know that face you make when you’re pretty sure that hipster guy in the skinny jeans cut in line but you’re not sure if you should say something because he looks like he could definitely start crying if someone is mean to him?
Yup, just made that face.
Ilhan. Just apologize and move on.
So, what you're saying is you support the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, the War on Terror, and the Patriot Act. Fascinating.

Shockingly, stunningly bad.
This was right afterwards. The identities may not have been fully confirmed. At this point, they have been.

You are a disgusting, racist piece of human debris.

What they said.
You attempt to soften the public’s perception of terrorists, whereas Bush actually killed terrorists. But yeah, you and he are just like two peas in a pod. https://t.co/3vnFZ0ZY4O

We have no idea.
And we’re not entirely sure we want to know.
