Eighteen years ago today, terrorists flew airplanes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, killing over three thousand people, in what is the worst terrorist attack on American soil. Ever. Some of you may be too young to remember the attacks, I grant you. But you likely all remember when Ilhan Omar categorized these attacks as “Some people did something.” Nicholas Haros Jr. is the son of a victim from the September 11 terrorist attacks from 2001. He has a response for Omar. It’s scathing.

“Today I am here to respond to you about who did what to whom. Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done, there is no uncertainty about that. On that day, 19 Islamic terrorists killed three thousand people and caused billions of dollars in economic damage. I was attacked. Your friends and family were attacked. Our Constitutional freedoms were attacked. And our nation’s founding on Judeo-Christian principles was attacked. Got that now?”
Hey Ilhan Omar:
Being real for a second, Ilhan Omar knows exactly what happened on September 11, just as The New York Times knew who piloted the planes on September 11. But if Ilhan Omar is sympathetic to “some people” who did “something” on September 11, the last thing she’d want to do is remind everyone who is actually to blame. Related: Dear Ilhan Omar: It’s Not Because You’re Muslim. It’s Because You’re a Hateful Sh*t Stick.
So cheers to Nicholas and everyone like him, who won’t back down and refuses to allow media or leftist politicians to erase who was responsible for September 11 and WHY they attacked us.
Let me chime in for the sake of it: Islamic terrorists attacked the United States because they hate the United States and all we stand for, including our freedoms, our successes, our principles, our Judeo-Christian founding, and yes, our role on the world stage. Some may argue had the United States never been involved in the Middle East, the attacks wouldn’t have happened. I doubt that’s true because non-interventionalist or not, America is still the land of the free, land of Judeo-Christian values, land of equality. We were, and always will be, a target for those who hate what it is the United States represents: a better way to live.
