Far-left radical Representative Ilhan Omar had a major tone shift for 9/11 this year when she stated that 9/11 was “one of the most horrific terrorist attacks that we have lived through” in a video that was posted on her Twitter account. This is a much different tone than when she said that 9/11 was a day where “some people did something.”
“I mean, I was 18-years-old when that happened,” Omar said. “I was in a classroom in college and I remember rushing home after being dismissed and getting home and seeing my father in complete horror as he sat in front of that TV.”
She said that she felt as if “the world was ending.”
“And I remember just feeling like the world was ending. The events of 9/11 were life-changing, life-altering for all of us. This was, I think, one of the most horrific terrorist attacks that we have lived through,” she added.
“My feeling around it is one of complete horror. None of us are ever going to forget that day and the trauma that we will always have to live with,” Omar continued:

Her remarks struck a demonstratively different tone than those she offered during a keynote address at a private fundraiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in March 2019. At the time, she urged attendees to “raise hell” and described 9/11 as a day “some people did something.”
“CAIR was founded after 9/11, because they recognize that some people did something, and then all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar told attendees.
“You can’t just say that today someone is looking at me strange, that I am going to try to make myself look pleasant. You have to say that person is looking at me strange, I am not comfortable with it. I am going to talk to them and ask them why,” she added:
Omar also told the crowd that President Trump “fuels hate against Muslims” and speaks of those in the Islamic faith “in a way that is dehumanizing, vilifying, and doesn’t understand, or at least makes us want to think that he doesn’t understand.”
