Nicholas Haros, Jr., who lost his mother in the 9/11 attack, criticized Ilhan Omar while speaking at the 9/11 commemoration in New York. In this interview with Fox News he tells Omar: “Let’s put the victim card where it belongs, and that’s on the families.”
Trump has repeatedly clashed with the group of freshman Democrats: Reps.
Nicholas Haros Jr. of New Jersey wore a shirt that referenced Omar’s March remarks before the Council on American-Islamic Relations, in which she said, “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.” After reading some victims’ names Wednesday at the event commemorating the 18th anniversary of the attacks, Haros Jr. said, “Some people did something,” while pointing to his shirt, on which those words were printed. The moment came as he spoke of his late mother, 76-year-old Francis Haros, as well as friends and co-workers who died in the World Trade Center attacks.
” ‘Some people did something,’ said a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota. To support and justify the creation of CAIR. Today I am here to respond to you exactly who did what to whom,” he said as some audience members applauded. “Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done. There is no uncertainty about that. Why your confusion?”
“On that day, 19 Islamic terrorists, members of Al Qaeda killed over 3,000 people and caused billions in dollars of economic damage. Is that clear? But as to whom? I was attacked, your relatives and friends were attacked. Our constitutional freedoms were attacked. And our nation’s founding on Judeo-Christian principles were attacked. That’s what some people did. Got that now?” he continued. “We are here today, congresswoman, to tell you and The Squad just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please. American patriotism — in your position demand it.”Chandelis Duster, “Son of 9/11 victim criticizes Rep. Ilhan Omar and ‘the Squad’ during speech at Ground Zero“, CNN, September 11, 2019
Trump, who has sent several tweets in support of Bishop and Murphy, held a rally in Fayetteville on Monday night in an attempt to push them over the finish line. Trump cast the special election, and the 2020 presidential election, as a fight for the status quo, describing Democrats as the “America-hating left.”
Tuesday’s results will do little to quell doubts over the political punch of Trump’s repeated attempts to paint progressive congresswomen like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota as the face of the Democratic Party, in a bid to sway moderate voters to the right and energize his base.Gregory Krieg and Kate Sullivan, “Republican Dan Bishop projected to narrowly win closely watched North Carolina special congressional election“, CNN, 9/11/19
McCready’s near-miss could also signal that, for all that base might enjoy them, Trump’s attacks on lawmakers like Omar are a turn-off to moderates. The President held a now infamous rally earlier this summer in North Carolina, where the crowd in Greenville chanted, “Send her back!” as he railed against Omar, who was born in Somalia.
Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib should have been allowed into Israel, Blue and White candidate for prime minister Benny Gantz said Monday.
