The New York Posts front cover Thursday gave a blunt response to Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omars characterization of the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people” who “did something.” The headline in large white font reads, “Heres Your Something,” coupled with an image of the World Trade Center being hit by a plane in the background.
Omar delivered a speech March 23 — surfacing on Twitter just this week — at a Council for Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser event, where she used non-specific terms to describe the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks: “some people did something.” She seemed to be trying to make the case to a majority-Muslim audience that the attacks didnt warrant restricted “access” to the “civil liberties” of Muslims.
“CAIR was founded after 9/11, because they recognize that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said in her speech. (RELATED: Rep. Ilhan Omar Describes 9/11 Terror Attacks: Some People Did Something)
The New York Post was making a clear gesture against Omars comment in their Thursday, April 11 cover, with a subtitle reading “2,977 people dead by terrorism”.
