It doesn’t take much to arouse passions. In some cases, the problematic can take months to heal if not addressed.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) told a San Fernando Valley fundraiser audience that the Council on American–Islamic Relations was founded because Muslims were given increased scrutiny after the 9/11 attacks because…
“they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”
Not that the September 11 terror attacks forever changed the way Americans live within our own borders.
Five months later to the day, during the 9/11 Memorial and Museum Ceremony in New York City, Representative Omar’s comments were addressed by a private citizen.
Wearing a shirt with the Muslim Minnesota congresswoman’s infamous words emblazoned on it, Nicholas Haros Jr. paused from reading the names of the dead at the televised Ground Zero service to lambaste Omar.

You probably won’t see this clip on any of the major news outlets because the New York Times clarified who was really responsible.
“Airplanes took aim”, possibly with “some people” who “did something”.
Glad we finally got that cleared up.
