Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) accused President Donald Trump of encouraging “right-wing extremists” to commit “violent crimes and other acts of hate” in response to the video that the president released on Friday afternoon that showed Omar trivializing the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Trump tweeted a video on Friday that showed Omar describing the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something” while she gave a speech at the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR is a designated terrorist organization in the UAE and has been accused of being a front group for HAMAS, which is a designated terrorist organization in the United States.

Omar claimed that the video that Trump released resulted in a spike of threats against her and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanded that Trump delete the tweet.

Omar released a statement on Sunday in response to Trump’s video where she again failed to apologize for trivializing the 9/11 terrorist attacks:

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. I thank the Capitol Police, the FBI, the House Sergeant at Arms, and the Speaker of the House for their attention to these threats.

Violent crimes and other acts of hate by right-wing extremists and white nationalists are on the rise in this country and around the world. We can no longer ignore that they are being encouraged by the occupant of the highest office in the land. Counties that hosted a 2016 Trump rally saw a 226 percent increase in hate crimes in the months following a rally. And assaults increase when cities host Trump rallies. This is particularly concerning given the president’s visit to my home state of Minnesota on Monday.

Violent rhetoric and all forms of hate speech have no place in our society, much less from our country’s Commander in Chief.

We are all Americans. This is endangering lives. It has to stop.

Omar conveniently did not include that fact that the analysis of the alleged hate crimes noted that “the researchers do not suggest that Trump directly caused any of these crimes,” Vox reported.

Furthermore, the study conducted by The Washington Post used “reported hate crimes” in its analysis but did not indicate whether those “reported hate crimes” resulted in criminal charges or if they were merely allegations that went unsolved. It is also worth noting that there have been multiple examples of fake crimes that have been blamed on Trump supporters and recent research has found more than 400 examples of fake hate crimes reported throughout the U.S. in recent years.

In 2016, Omar advocated for compassion and leniency in the sentencing of a group of men who were accused of trying to join ISIS.

Earlier this month, Omar called on the Trump administration from her congressional account to help secure the release of a senior Muslim Brotherhood member from prison in Egypt.

In 2017, Omar was one of only two Minnesota state representatives who voted against a bill that allowed insurance companies to deny life insurance payments to the families of terrorists.

    Being a Muslim is participating in a hate crime. Islam hates all non-Muslims and promises to destroy all non-Muslims. Ban Islam.

      Oh, poor little Omar tied her scarf roo tight again! Exactly who is it that has been attacking conservative speakers on campus, attacking conservatives where they do business (per Maxie’s orders), slapping people, verbally attacking people, going full on rage over a red hat or tshirt!? All democrats! It wasn’t conservatives who assaulted people, blocked traffic, threw bottles of urine, sprayed people with unknown chemicals, etc. Again democrats!

      Sue don’t lie you know nothing about, You can’t put all Muslims in one casket and think whole nation of them hate none-Muslims and want to destroy us all.

      I know many Muslims, as friends, as also I have brother in law that are Muslims, good loving person and so is his family. So is my friends, that are Muslims, all good loving and gentle people. Get to know someone before you put up with this lie, that I believe you take from listen to Trump and on TV and news.

      And Islam has nothing to do with action of some Muslims. It like as if one and few Christians and or Jews or other belief do something wrong, then the whole will be blamed for those, how would you feel then? And say ban Christian, ban Jewish, ban this and that, so Sue before you come up with this bull shit, get to know some Muslim before you go on judge them all.

        Theresa, if they are truly practicing Muslims then they are holding to the tenets of Islam and they are enemies of all Americans. So yes, they can be grouped together. And let me ask you something. Did any of your Muslim friends stand up and condemn the 9/11 attacks? I looked but did not see a single one on any news outlet speak against it! What does that tell you?

    “In 2017, Omar was one of only two Minnesota state representatives who voted against a bill that allowed insurance companies to deny life insurance payments to the families of terrorists.”

    This is because Muslims should be paid for their work. They may not be able to get life insurance for suicide; but if they are paid for blowing others up, it works out well. It’s basically insurance for terrorists. It’s one of the reasons Trump stopped money going to “Palestine” (Arabs).

    Her mouth is her worst enemy. I think she is a Smollett copycat. He got away with iit so now she invented a story. She better be careful One of her so-called threats might become a reality. She might be planting the seed in the mind of someone who might take the challenge. Capital police can’t be everywhere

    She’s the one causing her own problems. She runs her mouth and then blames everyone else when they repeat what she says. If she wasn’t a terrorist in sheep’s clothing she would have already learned how anti-American she is and would stop repeating her hate rhetoric.

    Someone needs to inform Omar that Christians weren’t the ones flying planes into buildings on 9/11. Those were all members of her religion, and a perfect example of a “hate crime”.

    Treason is a badge of honor for the Godless NAZI Commie liberal Racist Demoncrat Party and RINOs! The party of hate, hypocrisy, lies, deception, Fake News (Russian Collusion and Jussie M hoax) the list is endless! And the clueless minions that follow them!

    Unbelievable! Don’t push your beliefs on us then after we reject you and your religion call us racist, bigoted, or any other label you want to place on anyone that’s non Muslim. It’s her way or the highway! Our constitutional right to freedom of religion is being used against us to even allow religions of extremism and other terrorist organizations to have a say in our own government. Wake up America!

    I think it’s kind of funny that she mentions Nancy Piglosi in her rhetoric against President Trump. She is not only stirring up the hatred for the American people, but those within her own party. It’s like she is reaching out to the senior members of Congress to further her blatant hatred. I am sure that all the Muslims in Minnesota who voted for her are tasting the bitter pill of their actions now.

    If she would open her ear and listen it is not the President Trump supports doing the crimes it is the left of which she is part of. She does not belong on the hill.

    so this vile POS thinks Trump is inciting others, yet ignores her comments about getting in the face of others and inciting violence when it is from her words.

    Typical liberal, who feels free to spout the hate and vitriole having been protected in the past by the media and FAKE NEWS

    Laughable at first, now this one is pissing me off. Is there at least one reporter in our country that can ask her what proof she has in accusing the President??? Do we need citizen reporters because the media is not doing their job??? On the flip side of this one, the more she hurls fireballs the more folks are walking away from the DemocRAT party. She’s a double-edged sword.

    Alcoholic Pelosi is afraid of these Muslim terrorist women that terrorists elected. The fools defending Idiot Omar are supporting terrorists. She should have never been given citizenship.

    Theresa, you had no right to speak to Sue in such a way , As an American she has the right to voice her opinion. You, on the other hand must be a radical muslim terrorist for supporting omar. they will all rise up against America, it has already starting … may you be one of the first to be attacked. Get your head out of your ass and pay attention

    yes you can put them all together. The true practicing Muslims all hate us and are set up to try and destroy us..FACT..so yes we can lump them together..Omar is a sleeze that wormed her way into congress and a voice in OUR GOVERNMENT…she should of never been allowed in.
    She said she blames Trump and we conservatives for her being targeted..Good thank you..we have done our job as true American citizens..We will defend our country from the subhumans as yourself at all cost. YOU ran your skanky butt out of your country because you know that if YOU SAID anything close to what you are bellowing here in your country you would be DEAD…STONED TO DEATH ..so just be quiet and go back to your country and live your Muslim life..It is NOT WELCOME HERE

    On the one hand, there are reports of Muslims turning in their own terrorists. They aren’t all terrorists.

    On the other hand, it’s a bit much for Omar to accuse Trump of promoting violence. The article lists several things she has done to defend terrorism herself.

    Theresa you are one stupid bitch and maybe you should take all your Muslim friends back to their country and stay there with them dipshit
