Nicholas Haros, son of a victim of the 9/11 terror attacks, ripped into Representative Ilhan Omar over her latest 9/11 comments, saying she shouldn’t pretend to be the actual victim.
Haros, who appeared on Fox News’ ‘The Story with Martha MacCallum,’ was responding to Omar’s assessment that as a Muslim, she was twice the victim of those that suffered that day.
“I think it is really important for us to make sure that we are not forgetting, right, the aftermath of what happened after 9/11,” Omar said on ‘Face the Nation’ this past weekend. “Many Americans found themselves now having their civil rights stripped from them.”
Omar went on to bash Americans and their response to the 9/11 attacks as being hateful toward Muslims.
“As a Muslim, not only was I suffering as an American who was attacked on that day, but the next day I woke up as my fellow Americans were now treating me as a suspect,” she claimed without evidence.
Haros slammed her for playing the victim card.
It’s an embarrassment that the radical congresswoman would initially dismiss the 9/11 attacks with her comment that “some people did something,” but to then claim she’s the real victim when a man whose mother was actually killed that day calls her out, is appalling.
“I thought about it and what I heard her say the second time was that she cannot feel pain for the families and that we should just remember and never forget not the day but the aftermath, and I think that doesn’t quite hit the mark,” Haros said.
Indeed, Democrats have sought to whitewash the significance of the tragedy almost from day one. How many times have you heard the media say something along the lines of ‘most attacks have been at the hands of white nationalists since 9/11?’ They doctor their numbers and stats by wiping out the nearly 3,000 victims from that day.
“I don’t personally need an apology but I do think you need to apologize to the American people,” Haros insisted. “You can continue to support a fringe group of Muslims … Do you want to be on the sign of peace-loving Muslims as I am or do you want to continue to represent the fringe element?”

“All I would suggest, perhaps, that let’s place the victim card where it belongs and that’s on the families,” Haros concluded.
Some critics have suggested Haros should not be using his moment to speak at Ground Zero each year as a means to push a political agenda. We’d counter that the other 364 days in the year, extremist politicians like Omar push their anti-American political agenda, so why not fight back?
Lasy year, Haros slammed top Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Cory Booker for using the 9/11 victims as props in their “political theater.”
“Please stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater,” he pleaded. “Their lives and sacrifices and death are worth so much more. Let’s not trivialize them or us. It hurts.”
