Maybe just some Transformers© gone wild.Well according to the newspaper of record the New York Times it was just “airplanes” that caused the Towers to fall. "18 years have passed since airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center," read a tweet from the New York Times on Wednesday. Yup, just airplanes. You see, some people did something on 9-11, dunno who what or why, and airplanes extracted their revenge at being financed through Wall Street.
If you are going to make it political - and you did - read the entire speech. You will see that - given the full context of it - she WAS in fact minimizing the tragedy and WAS in fact minimizing the role of Islam in it. By minimizing the tragedy and role of Islam in it she hoped to minimize the future impact of the terrorist attacks on the Islamic community.*. And that’s why in the same speech she lied about the founding of CAIR.Hey all, I don't want to make this political, but let's not take Representative Omar's comments out of context. I live 9 miles west of Manhattan, and could see the towers from my bedroom window. I watched the whole thing unfold. I lost a few friends on 9/11, and I am surrounded by dozens of people who lost loved ones. Representative Omar was not minimizing the tragedy. She was just making the point that we cannot, and should not, make a blanket judgment of all Muslims because some Muslim people perpetrated this travesty. Her comments were in response to certain actions taken by our government, such as a Muslim ban. We do not live in a binary society where there is always a clear black and white, or always a good guy in a white hat and a bad guy in a black hat. Unfortunately, the media, particularly the right-wing media, tries to paint things that way. We are all smarter than that. Keep it in context.
