Dem Congressman Who Represents Lower Manhattan Has No Issue With Omar’s 9/11 Comments

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), a representative whose district encompasses the lower west side of Manhattan, says he has no issue with Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) description of 9/11 being carried out by “some people [who] did something.”

“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,” Omar said at a California fundraiser for the controversial organization.

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Nadler if he “take[s] any issue with the way Omar characterized 9/11.”

Nadler responded bluntly, “No, I did not.”

We’d have to imagine that a majority of New York’s 10th Congressional District would disagree.

No Issue

Omar, in other newly surfaced video clips, also mocked those who say the names of terrorist groups in a menacing fashion, while also managing to equate America, England, and the U.S. Army to organizations such as Al Qaeda and Hezbollah.

Does Nadler have a problem with that?

Nadler fleshed out his defense of Omar, saying “she characterized it only in passing.”

That’s the problem, Jerry. She dismissed it as a trivial event and not the most traumatic terrorist attack ever carried out on American soil. In YOUR district!

“She was talking about discrimination against Muslim Americans,” he continued. “And she just said after that happened it was used as an excuse for lots of discrimination and withdrawal of civil liberties.”

“I’ve had some problems with some of her other remarks, but not with that one,” Nadler added.

Moral Authority

In other interviews, Nadler attacked President Trump as the problem, claiming he has “no moral authority” to criticize Omar’s comments because he accepted a development grant in the aftermath of the attack.

The President tweeted a video of the Minnesota extremist’s comment interspersed with clips from the actual terrorist attacks on 9/11, adding the caption “We will never forget!”

“He wasn’t president then, but Donald Trump actually took a $150,000 grant from the Bush administration,” Nadler said, implying that the then-real estate developer should not have accepted a grant for development in the area.

Donald Trump actually warned the nation of a possible terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in his book, “The America We Deserve,” one year before that tragic day.

“I really am convinced we’re in danger of the sort ofRep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), a representative whose district encompasses the lower west side of Manhattan, says he has no issue with Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) description of 9/11 being carried out by “some people [who] did something.” terrorist attacks that will make the bombing of the Trade Center look like kids playing with firecrackers,” he warned. “No sensible analyst rejects this possibility, and plenty of them, like me, are not wondering if but when it will happen.”

As President, he refused to mince word on last year’s anniversary of the attack.

“Since September 11, nearly five-and-a-half million young Americans have enlisted in the United States armed forces,” Trump said to a mostly positive response. “Nearly 7,000 service members have died facing down the menace of radical Islamic terrorism.”

Radical. Islamic. Terrorism.

Not just ‘some people.’

  • what bullshit. Trump and his crime cartel are in bed with the people who actually FUNDED 9/11; and now trying to give Egypt NUCLEAR power. pay attention. Interesting that there are hundreds of Democratic Senators and Reps and the GOP is fixated on the MUSLIM one and the Latina. Check yourselves. if you wanna go after Muslims, start with Doctor OZ and Paula Abdul.

  • Has to be some major voter fraud going on there. I can't imagine the good, patriotic folks residing there would just give (vote) their city away and accept the shithole the dems/progressives/socialists are turning it into. Do the voting left-leaning people really outnumber the decent, law-abiding cobservatices there?

  • Nadler is a twit and proof we need term limits. Nancy and the DNC have been embarrassed by their Grosh colleagues, Cortez is the fall girl and Nancy let her have it earlier the green idea was a total bust and Cortez seems more ignorant than any other President even when the DNC constantly mocked that stupid actor Ronald Reagan. So they have to save something of the democratic socialists, and Omar's pretentious racist bigotry has more support in Minneapolis, a city with the fastest growing gun killing rates in the country. The fact is the DNC has failed too many times to do much more than make promises to the black community saving Omar may be their last chance to get votes that are slipping away because even black Muslim supremacists with American citizens are irked by being put back in line behind the illegals in term so funding and attention.

  • Rep. Nadler is just another STUPID New Yorker. Too bad he was spared from the 9/11 disaster, he might have another view - well, wait, he suffers the double whammy - he's a Democrat, as well! Never mind!

  • allah is defined as god of the moon, or blackness of night, while yehwah is decribed as god of light and peace and love.allah is not for peace and love. read the fucking qweeran again fool. i have.

  • Jerry Nadsless, is a cowardly sort of fellow. When he is out witted, "which is often", he cowers like a scared little monkey. As Acting A.G. Whitaker said to him, "your five minutes are up".

  • 9-11 was just a preview what they want to do to america, if and when they ever win the presidency. get ready to defend yourself and loved ones if this ever happens.obama started it, and hildabag was supposed to finish it.
