Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar was the featured speaker at CAIR-LA’s annual Valley Banquet. CAIR-LA was “honored to have” her.
Of course they were honored. What better treat for a terror-linked organization like CAIR than to sit listening to a terrorist apologist refuse to acknowledge a terrorist act as terrorism:
9/11: The Day That Some People Did Something.
Needless to say, that didn’t sit well with actual Americans.

Pretty casual way to refer to an event where thousands of people died.— x – Hurricane Belief (@Ivanmh459) April 9, 2019
Veteran Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) was incensed:

Some people did something???To use the word something to describe 3,000 + people that died in the worst terrorist attack in history of the USA is superbly and willfully insensitive to America. Saying it as a representative of the USA is shameful!!!!! She has to go.— jewelbirdy (@Jewelbirdy) April 9, 2019Advertisement
And bizarrely, Omar was also lying about CAIR.
The detestable organization wasn’t founded because of the attacks on September 11, 2001 because it was founded in Washington, D.C. in 1994. So it’s rather odd to suggest it was because of 9/11.

Hundreds of people protested outside the CAIR event, supporting Israel and objecting to Omar’s multiple anti-Semitic and anti-American remarks.
It wasn’t the first time Omar uttered outrageous statements about 9/11 and terrorism:
