Media cleanup on Aisle 9/11

The media is in overdrive to protect Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar from her own words, which were, "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."

That is factually wrong. CAIR was founded in 1994. Perhaps she means after the first attempt by Muslims to bring down the Twin Towers in 1993.

But her error bothers no one. The trouble is her cavalier attitude toward the death of nearly 3,000 Americans is the problem.



Her dismissal of an unprovoked and unwarranted act of terrorism is a signal that she is a callous and heartless soul who really does not belong in Congress.

Yes, I defend her God-given right to hate speech, but I will be damned if I defend the content of her remarks.

Speaking of the damned, the mainstream media swooped in to cover for her remarks which are indefensible.

Glenn Kessler of the Washington Post wrote, "When we listened to the whole speech, we were reminded of President George W. Bush’s phrasing in two famous moments after the Sept. 11 attacks."

What?

The crowd at Ground Zero said they could not hear him.

Bush said, "I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the people – and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon."

The crowd reacted with loud, prolonged chants of "USA! USA!"

That is nothing like her self-centered, egotistic, and ahistoric remarks.

And contrary to her whining about civil liberties, President Bush went out of his way to protect Muslims from backlash.

ABC ran, "Rep. Ilhan Omar defends herself: 'I am as American as everyone else is,'" based on Stephen Colbert's interview of her.

USA Today tried pass the controversy off as words taken out of context.

I shake my head and sigh. Last week the media was up in arms over a tweet that showed the president saying all immigrants are animals. The media never bothered verifying the story or vetting the man who tweeted.

President Trump actually said MS-13 gang members are animals. True. They behead people for crying out loud.

So let us review, the media used the three most popular excuses for foot-in-mouth disease: whataboutism, patriotism, and out-of-contextism.

The media went 0-for-3 again.

Chris Davis has a higher batting average this year than the media.

    1. Same thing happens to New Yorkers when they flee New York for Florida. They didn't vote for the same type of assholes that created the shithole of New York. Can't take the asshole out of the asshole by moving them 1000 miles.

    2. Another reason why Trump's immigration policy is right to focus on admitting people who actually like this country and want to be part of it. All Omar has done in her public life is try to tear the country down and divide us with hate.

    1. Sadly, the Dems create a world view where her non-white status pushes America where they want to go. MN voted against Reagan. They have put into her head that her anti-American views are doing is a favor.

      These people are proud of hating red-blooded Americans.

  4. Muslim first. Any other identity she may feel or claim is secondary.

  5. Oh, Big D, I just remembered: Turns out that poster at the WV statehouse that led to that woman’s resignation wasn’t too far off the mark, eh?

  6. She is an idiot with power and as such very dangerous.

    Laws mean nothing to her. Her religion and her home country are paramount.

    She will turn on the Dems when and if they cross her.

  7. Even though they caught Ramzi Yusef and his partner with fake passports, he was allowed to enter and claim asylum. His partner was arrested for the bomb manuals. Yousef used the Blind Sheik's mosque to plot war on us while he was causing car wrecks for insurance money. He ordered bomb chemicals from his tax-payer provided hospital bed. It was only poor engineering skills on his part that didn't bring down the Towers in '92.

    Later, the bombers were given tax-payer money to hire lawyers who were helping them plot more attacks. They were given government secrets on discovery while they maimed prison guards.

    They murdered these Americans:

    John DiGiovanni, age 45, a dental products salesperson.
    Robert (Bob) Kirkpatrick, age 61, Senior Structural Maintenance Supervisor.
    Stephen Knapp, age 47, Chief Maintenance Supervisor, Mechanical Section.
    Bill Macko, age 57, General Maintenance Supervisor, Mechanical Section.
    Wilfredo Mercado, age 37, a receiving agent for Windows on the World restaurant.
    Monica Rodriguez Smith age 36, a secretary, who was seven months pregnant."

    Pregnant? Then that makes seven Americans. Their memorial was buried in the rubble on 9/11 after we let even more of these savages in.

    Omar must think Muhammed Atta's right to a federally-funded crop-duster was violated when he showed up at the Dept. of Agriculture in a wig and threatened the bureaucrat with death.

    You May Have Been at War Too Long When...your former detainees are now serving in Congress.

    1. correction: 1993

      Omar herself was allowed to come here, gain citizenship, milk the welfare system, commit immigration fraud by marrying her brother and then serve in Congress. It doesn't sound like she was oppressed to me.

      But she's right about one thing:

      There was indeed spying on the community and massive governmental violations of the law so that "all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties."

      That community was Donald Trump, his campaign, his administration and the Americans who elected him.

      You don't CAIR. lady--but we do.

  8. CAIR was started long before 9-11. Moreover, it was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land case helping to funnel money to terrorists organizations, specifically Hamas.

  9. The Hate Media ... well, they’re the Sweet, Sweet Lurve Media to SOME people ... clearly just had another large chunk of their subscribers “Walk Away”. Stand by for a sudden profit warning in the next quarter’s financial statements.

  10. For his part, Tawhidi, the man who started it all, sent out a tweet that dripped with sarcasm and irony about both AOC and Omar:

    You are so bright you make the sun jealous. Only you could figure out a way to use the Holocaust to defend an anti-Semite who doesn’t even believe in the Holocaust. [Mohamad Tawhidi, an Australian Muslim cleric who holds decidedly anti-jihad views.]
