A 9/11 memorial speaker called out Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over her “callous” comments about the single most devastating attack on U.S. soil by a foreign entity. The death toll of the terrorist attacks exceeded 3,000 people –more than the number of people killed in the attack on Pearl Harbor during World War II.
His speech: Wearing a “some people did something” T-shirt, the speaker, Nicholas Haros, began his speech by pointed to his shirt, saying: “Listen. ‘Some people did something,’”
Haros then listed the names of those close to him who he lost as a result of the attacks.
“I am here today to honor my 76-year-old mother Francis on the solemn 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Mom, we all miss you and love you very much. This day I also remember over 200 personal friends and co-workers that I knew, that died,” Haros said, before turning to Omar.
“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,” Haros said.
“Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done. There is no uncertainty about that,” he continued.
“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?” Haros added.
“We are here today, Congresswoman, to tell you and the ‘Squad’ just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please,” he said.
Omar made the controversial comments during a speech for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in March this year, where she said:
“CAIR was founded after 9/11, because they recognize that some people did something, and then all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said.
