Ilhan Omar just got a rude awakening and her entire career could be over
Ilhan Omar can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
She hops on any opportunity to create controversy she can.
And Ilhan Omar just got the rude awakening that could end her career.
There has perhaps been no scandal more damaging for Ilhan Omar than the comments she made about 9/11.
While speaking at a conference for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), she stated that the terrorist attacks on 9/11 were simply “some people” doing “something.”
Considering that CAIR themselves have known links to terrorist organizations, that created an immediate uproar.
But apparently Omar didn’t learn her lesson, considering that just this week she attended an event for CAIR in Coral Springs, Florida, which brought out at least 100 protesters.
South Florida Sun Centennial reports:
Pro-Trump bikers, truck-mounted signs and flags waved through an already bustling corner of Coral Springs on Saturday.
Some from the crowd of about 100 were there to protest a visit from U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, who was scheduled to talk at an event just down the road. Others were angry about impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
Omar, the freshman Democrat from Minnesota, was in South Florida to headline a fundraising banquet for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim-American civil rights group also known as CAIR.
A handful of those who showed up on Saturday were activists protesting Omar’s meeting with CAIR, and claimed the group had ties to the terrorist organization Hamas.
“We’re here to call out the terrorist links of CAIR,” said Joe Kaufman, one of the organizers and former Republican candidate for Congress.
Kaufman and other activists seized on a now-deleted tweet by Omar — she replied to a story about House Republicans taking action against her criticism of Israel with, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby.” The tweet drew wide bipartisan criticism and Omar later apologized.
“We believe that that’s way beyond criticism of Israel,” Kaufman said.
It is astonishing just how tone-deaf Ilhan Omar is.
It’s almost like she is trying to do everything she can to guarantee she doesn’t win re-election.
And considering that a recent poll showed she has a 9% approval rating, she is doing a good job if that’s her goal.
