It’s a day ending in “y,” which means Ilhan Omar is once again playing the victim after getting called out for saying something heinously awful.
As Twitchy told you yesterday, Omar headlined a CAIR-LA event late last month, where she casually described the 9/11 terrorists as “some people who did something.” GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw was among the many who expressed their utter disgust:
First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as “some people who did something”.

And apparently, according to Omar, Crenshaw’s tweet, as well as Fox News’ discussion of her remarks, constitutes “dangerous incitement”:
This is dangerous incitement, given the death threats I face. I hope leaders of both parties will join me in condemning it.

We know that words are hard for Ilhan Omar, but to suggest that quoting her constitutes “incitement” is pretty outrageous even for her.
Then you’re an idiot

What did Dan do to incite anything towards you? He merely repeated your vile diminishing of the 9/11 terror attacks.

Crenshaw's tweet literally describes what you said. Incitement my ass. https://t.co/GJwgpZXX36

Quoting your own words is not “incitement.” https://t.co/AeyqEJfyhx

Quoting your words isn't incitement. https://t.co/potqYHdiAT

I’m sorry, you want me to condemn people for………quoting you accurately? https://t.co/3kQ6WnwkIi

That’s what she wants, yes.
Somebody did something, what’s the big deal?

Careful … applying her own words to her current predicament probably counts as incitement, too.
So by your logic any questioning of your words, their meaning and/or intent, is somehow incitement? So you cannot be criticized? Those words aren't incitement, that's criticism of your dismissive remarks about one of the greatest tragedies this country has ever endured.

So now we can't call you out because of those threats? How convenient for you. Both sides get threats, you're not alone.
Simply quoting you and saying "unbelievable" is not incitement. If it was you'd be guilty of far worse.

Guys, please stop quoting exactly what this bigot says…. its hurtful https://t.co/BjSZXLujtX

Yeah, we should really go easy on her. After all, she’s just trying to be a good American. Unlike — *whispers° — some other people:
GP *except the Jews
That's the part you didn't say, right, Congresswoman? https://t.co/yIDErR4bHk

Hate crimes against American Jews are on the rise … can we thank Ilhan Omar’s repeated “incitement” for that?
