WATCH: Democrat Rashida Tlaib Defends Ilhan Omar For Downplaying 9/11 Attacks

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) referred to the 9/11 terror attacks as “some people did something.” Omar said after being dismissive about the attacks she was receiving death threats against her. Now Democrat Rashida Tlaib defends the ridiculous statement she made.

In her initial statement Omar said that CAIR was founded after 9/11 to protect Muslims from losing their civil liberties because “some people did something.”

On Thursday Rep. Rashida Tlaib appeared on NBC and defended Omar and accused her critics of being racist.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib: They do this all the time to us. Especially women of color. They do that. They take our words out of context because they’re afraid. Because we speak truth to power. Just plain racist act by many of those because she does speak truth.

They did what they do best: everything is racist. It’s more likely that they just hate America.
