AOC, Rashida Tlaib leap to defense of Ilhan Omar after her 'some people did something' 9/11 remarkshttps://www.foxnews.com/politics/rashid ... 11-remarks
Omar, D-Minn., is facing backlash after a speech at a Muslim rights group’s event in which she described the September 11, 2001, terror attacks as “some people did something”.Ocasio-Cortez Says Conservatives Are Inciting Violence Against the Lefthttps://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... ainst-left
The comment has drawn ire from the likes of Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Tx, and the New York Post, which published a dramatic front page Thursday with an infamous photo of New York City’s Twin Towers on fire on the day of the attacks.
The page read: “Here’s your something: 2,977 people dead by terrorism.”
Tlaib, when asked by MSNBC if Omar should have rethought her words, said that she had been taken out of context.
“They do that all the time, especially women of color, they take our words out of context because they’re afraid because we speak truth, we speak truth to power,” Tlaib said.
“We are getting to the point where this is incitement of violence against progressive women of color,” Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat, told reporters. “If they can’t figure out how to get it back to policy, we need to call it out for what it is. This is not normal, this is not a normal level of political debate or rhetoric.”
“Almost every time this uncalled for rhetoric gets blasted by conserv. grps, we get a spike in death threats to refer to Capitol Police. Multiple ppl have been arrested trying to harm me, Ilhan, & others. @GOP, what’s it going to take to stop?” she asked in the Twitter post.
AOC Rashidaa Tlaib and Ilhan Omar are quite possibly the most vile prognazi political leaders in America.
