Rep. Ilhan Omar Sees Spike in Death Threats After Trump 9/11 Attack

Rep. Ilhan Omar Sees Spike in Death Threats After Trump 9/11 Attack

Trump's video, which was briefly pinned to his profile, features only these four words out of her entire 20-minute speech. Federal prosecutors announced April 5 that Patrick Carlineo Jr. had been arrested after placing a call to her Capitol Hill office in which he threatened to shoot her. Carlineo gave his name and contact information to an Omar staffer, who turned the details over to the FBI.

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before.

The poster was widely condemned, including by the Republican party, and reportedly led to at least one resignation.

Critics accuse Ms Omar of being flippant in describing the perpetrators of the attacks that killed almost 3,000 people. She won't back down to Trump's racism and hate, and neither will we. Her family later moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota.

"Since the President's tweet Friday evening, I have experienced an increase in direct threats on my life - many directly referencing or replying to the President's video", Omar said. "And I think on the other hand, they are the best defense of him".

Ilhan Omar isn't just anti-Semitic - she's anti-American.

In relation to her identity as a female Muslim, Ms Omar did once state, "I am America's hope and the president's nightmare". Her full statement was on how Muslim's civil liberties have eroded since 9-11.

"They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces", Pelosi added. The video interspersed her words from a speech with images from 9/11. Now, a president uses that dark day to incite his base against a member of Congress, as if for sport. However, the video is still live and has in excess of 10 million views.

Omar also said, "Violent crimes and other acts of hate by right-wing extremists and white nationalists are on the rise in this country and around the world". "It has to stop".

"She is strong, she is determined but she is also concerned", Bass said.

"Here's the truth", Ms Omar stated in the Cair speech on 23 March.

"I think that many of us knew that this was going to get worse, because we finally have a leader, a world, leader, in the White House, who publicly says Islam hates us, who fuels hate against Muslims, who thinks it is OK, it is OK to speak about a faith and a whole community in a way that is dehumanizing", Omar said. It was actually founded in 1994.

Fox News Channel host Brian Kilmeade said on a "Fox & Friends" segment on Omar, "You have to wonder if she's an American first".

However, all of the criticism was focussed on the phrasing around the 9/11 attacks.

Furthermore, this certainly isn't the first time a politician has used strangely casual language about the 9/11 attacks. Fittingly, as has been seen in the war on terror, increased aggression only serves to breed wider resentment.

Fahmy also said that the global rules and values apply to everyone and that "we give individuals right to advocate how they see USA interests and not see it as a threat to status quo".

While criticizing Trump for his threat to ship undocumented immigrants to "sanctuary cities" like San Francisco-where Pelosi's congressional district is located-she declared, "I'm not giving up on the president", as a possible partner on immigration policy. As an African-born, female, Muslim politician, she is an obvious target for the far-right.
