Omar Says She Has Faced Increase In Death Threats Since Trump Tweet

6

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said she has received an increase in death threats since President Trump shared an edited video on Twitter that featured images of the 9/11 terrorist attack with Omar’s comments spliced in between.

Omar put out a statement Sunday night detailing the blowback she has faced since Trump posted the video.

“Since the President’s tweet Friday evening, I have experienced an increase in direct threats on my life — many directly referencing or replying to the President’s video,” Omar wrote in a statement.

“Violent rhetoric and all forms of hate speech have no place in our society, much less from our country’s Commander in Chief,” Omar added. “We are all Americans. This is endangering lives. It has to stop.”Read more at The Hill.

  1. Poor Omar we feel so bad Maybe learn to shut your mouth Stop with all your foolish comments And then you won’t have any issues

  2. She’s clearly full of it. She never received a single death threat since the Presidents tweet. This is an old trick of Muslim Americans. We all remember that Muslim girl who claimed a bunch of WHITE heterosexual males chased her into a train station, cursing and threatening her the whole time. Turns out she admitted that she made up the whole story.

  3. The Ilhan Omar playbook:
    1) Make anti-Semitic comment, or, in this case, trivialize a mass-murder terrorist attack.
    2) When predictable outrage ensues, play the victim who is being threatened by those big, bad racists (aka those who called out her bigotry).
    3) Lather, rinse, repeat.

  4. Ill hand Omer is crying she’s receiving death threats. They’re not death threats, just some people saying something.
