Trump removes Twitter video accusing Rep. Ilhan Omar of dismissing 9/11 attacks

https://www.cbc.ca/news/w...-1.5097778


U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Sunday that she has taken steps to ensure the safety of Rep. Ilhan Omar following President Donald Trump's retweet of a video that purports to show the Minnesota Democrat being dismissive of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.


The California Democrat also called on Trump to take down the video. Soon after her public request, the video disappeared from Trump's Twitter feed.


Pelosi was among Democrats who had criticized Trump over the tweet, with some accusing him of trying to incite violence against the Muslim lawmaker who has already seen one upstate New York man face criminal charges for making death threats against her.

And Trump bragged right after the attacks that his building was not the tallest building in Manhattan. That it was the tallest, then the WTC was built and it became the second tallest, and now it was the 1st tallest.

And her comment is being taken out of context by Republicans. She was discussing the demonization of an entire religion based upon what some people did. I've heard Christians say the same thing when people start to criticize the Christian religion based upon what a few did. "You can't judge us based upon what a few people did" or "Don't judge all of us based on what some did." There was nothing in her comment to downplay 9/11 or what happened that tragic day. But there was everything wrong with what Trump said right after the attacks.

Well let's see here.

Trump never said his building was the tallest in all of Manhattan.

That's because the Empire State Building AND the Chrysler Building AND 70 Pine Street were all taller than his at the time.

And it's not just Republicans who are offended by Omar, it's also Dems.

correct, that classless piece of shit was talking about downtown Manhatten
but even there he was wrong, what a laughable dumb vain babyfucking rapist lying scumbag


"40 Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan,” Trump replied, “and it was actually, before the World Trade Center, was the tallest — and then, when they built the World Trade Center, it became known as the second tallest. And now it’s the tallest."

But it wasn't.

just fake info by the worthless fake president trying to compensate for his foul stinking tiny dick. and failing, as always.

What did she say?

The "some people did something" quote was from a speech Ms Omar gave to a civil rights group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (Cair), on 23 March.

In the 20-minute speech she discussed issues affecting the community like Islamophobia and the recent mosque attack in New Zealand.

The comments in Mr Trump's video were taken from a point she made about the treatment of US Muslims in the aftermath of the 11 September attacks:

"Here's the truth. For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I'm tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it. 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."

Deebee said it much better than I could in another thread:

"It does seem worth affirming, for the avoidance of doubt, that there was absolutely nothing wrong with Ilhan Omar's remarks about 9/11. She said nothing she should have to apologise for, let alone anything worthy of condemnation. It's not even like it's something a bit questionable that, nonetheless, seems like small beer when set against Trump's own hatemongering; it's simply a total non-story. I can only even imagine it having any traction amongst those possessed of a 'birther' type of ideology, for whom the Black refugee woman in a hijab is automatically and existentially posited as some kind of hostile outsider."

Okay, Maple, thanks for answering my question. I heard about this incident, but I didn't know the details. I do think, however, that her choice of words was a little awkward to say the least. You don't call a terrorist attack "something by somebody." It sounds as if she doesn't want to acknowledge that islam does have a problem with extremists.

It was a 20 minute speech, that is one paragraph, and it's a real stretch to get that she doesn't want to acknowledge that islam does have a problem with extremists from that. What she is clearly saying is that many muslims are demonised because of the actions of the few. That is all.

Then she should have chosen her words more carefully. You don't talk about a terrorist attack in this way, not the one in New York, not the one in Christchurch or any other. And especially from a muslima, it comes across as if she cares about discrimination against muslims, but is indifferent about crimes committed by muslims. That may not have been her intention, but that's how it looks and as you know, in the media, it's always more about how it looks than about what somebody really means.

This is what you said about her yesterday.

"Ilhan Omar is a terrorist apologist and a swine. She spoke glowingly about terror groups and referred to 9/11 as "some people did something" and then flat out lies that Muslim people are losing freedoms."

"And we have a terrorist sympathiser Ilhan Omar speaking with a sparkle in her eyes and an approving loving smile and laughter about terrorist groups..."

"Will you condemn her 9/11 remarks or her laughing and loving remarks about terrorist groups?"


All lies. She is getting death threats you know.

In Attacking Ilhan Omar, Trump Revives His Familiar Refrain Against Muslims

As long as President Trump has focused on what he said was the danger lurking at the southwestern border, he has also talked about the supposed threat from one specific group already in the country: Muslims.

During the 2016 campaign, he would not rule out creating a registry of Muslims in the United States. He claimed to have seen “thousands” of Muslims cheering on rooftops in New Jersey after Sept. 11, a statement that was widely debunked. After deadly attacks in Paris and California, Mr. Trump called for a moratorium on Muslims traveling to the United States...

...Critics accuse Omar of offering a flippant description of the assailants behind the attack that killed nearly 3,000 people. She later sought to defend herself by tweeting a quote from former U.S. President George W. Bush. Days after 9/11, the Republican president referred to the attackers as "people."

Bush had said, "The people — the people who knocked those buildings down will hear all of us soon." "Was Bush downplaying the terrorist attack?" Omar asked...

No, that is not her defense. She doesn't need to defend her comment. As those who are do not take her comment out of context, know what she was saying. She was merely pointing out the hypocrisy of the right.

She didn't even need to defend herself. She did nothing wrong. Unlike the person in the playground getting his kicks from the hatred and division he continues to cause by stupid actions like editing a video to make it seem like someone said something they didn't. The worst thing though - people keep believing his lies. People are using this to argue that all muslims are terrorist sympathisers. People are using his tweets to accuse all immigrants of being criminals, rapists, dealers etc... Hatred continues to swell. When Omar was speaking about equality for all, it's interesting that someone who champions inequality had a problem with it.

Those defending the death threats and cause thereof against Rep. Ilhan Omar can no longer protest any imflammatory statements made by people regarding President Trump or his family, nor the negative potential consequences those comments may hold for said individuals.

I made the mistake of reading Trump's Twitter account yesterday, and the comments from some of his tweets (from both sides) - full of hatred and blame. I then looked at Omar's Twitter account, then at Obama's. The difference is stark.
