Republicans Prove Ilhan Omar Is Right About Anti-Muslim Bigotry

“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.”

The comment in question. Disgusting? Honestly?

Interesting use of vernacular for a rather banal comment. Is she factually wrong at least? No. Not at all.

Considering the impact and death toll we've seen since 9/11, which has vastly dwarfed the initial attack I don't think we should dictate how we discuss this based on New Yorkers feelings, sorry it's still in your mind but the discussion is global now. It was a horrible attack, it was also a single incident in what is now almost 2 decades of actual fucking war where civilians die every single day. The narrative didn't stop in time.

Over 400,000 dead Iraqi civilians caused by the USA and its invasions and I still hear Iraq jokes ffs, if Ilhans comment disgusts you then you must spend a good chunk of the day disgusted cus there's shitloads worse.
