The New York Post issued a scathing rebuke of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) with their Thursday cover and editorial after Omar described the September 11, 2001, Islamic terror attacks that killed thousands of Americans as “some people did something.”

Omar made the remarks, which sparked widespread outrage, during a March 23 speech at an event for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — which the United Arab Emirates has designated as a terrorist organization. Omar has since bemoaned criticism of her from Fox News and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) in response to her remarks by alleging that they were engaging in “dangerous incitement” against her.

The New York Post responded to Omar’s comments by making this the feature story in their Thursday publication with a cover photo of the World Trade Centers under attack on September 11, 2001, and with a headline that stated: “Here’s your something.”

“How pathetic: A member of Congress can’t acknowledge what happened on one of the most horrific days in US history,” The New York Post Editorial Board wrote. “Some people did something? Wow. What a way to describe the heinous surprise attack on America that claimed 3,000 lives.”

At the March 23 event, Omar said: “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

The Post’s Editorial Board noted that “CAIR wasn’t founded post-9/11, but in 1994. And the feds later named it an unindicted co-conspirator in a plot to steer US funds to the terror group Hamas.”

“Yet Omar upped the obscure-the-facts ante Wednesday, declaring criticism of her ‘some people did something’ line to be ‘incitement,’ on the grounds that she has received death threats,” The Post’s Editorial Board concluded. “Huh? She’d rightly be outraged if anyone minimized those threats as merely ‘some words from some people.’ Omar’s cavalier brushing off of the murder of thousands of innocents on 9/11 should shock all Americans, Muslims included.”

Retired FDNY Chief Jim Riches, whose son, firefighter Jimmy Riches, was killed on 9/11, responded to Omar’s comment in an op-ed featured in the New York Post on Wednesday.

“What Congresswoman Ilhan Omar said about Sept. 11 was disgraceful,” Riches wrote. “She dismissed thousands of people being murdered like it was an everyday occurrence when she said ‘some people did something.'”

“We picked up the bodies and saw how gruesome it was,” Riches wrote. “Those people died a horrible death. We were there for 9 months picking up body parts, pieces.”

“I think Omar owes an apology to America. She owes an apology to the families,” Riches concluded. “She came here from Somalia. She was educated here. We took care of her. And now she’s saying 9/11 was nothing? Until the time that you realize the importance of 9/11 as the worst day in American history, I call for your removal from Congress.”

Earlier in the week, Crenshaw called out Omar for her comments, tweeting: “First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something’. Unbelievable.”

    Have you had enough of this soulless POS yet? She just doesn’t want to She knows Nasty Nancy won’t fo anything to her but how about the rest of us. Since this monster set foot on US soil she has done nothing but mock, complain,criticize, undermine and betray the American people. We should have left her azz over in the refugee camp since she has publicly announced she feels more comfortable over there. My guess would be she didn’t criticize, condemn or complain over there or they would have buried her useless terrorist lovibg azz. I want this bitch out of our government and out of this country

    And she questions why Muslims get a bad rap. With that kind of sewage spewing from her mouth, she need not question anymore. Ungrateful with a tortured soul.

    “Coolhand” Omar: “What we have here is failure to communicate.” Could you please keep flapping your lips? We’ve been waiting for years for a radical Somali muslim profit to emerge and deliver the U.S. from the evils of democracy and capitalism.

    Omar, AOC, Talib and others are “ Domestic Terrorist”
    Call them what they are!
    Our government needs to label them as such and extradite them out of this country!
    They are spewing their Muslim Terrorist Ideas across USA.
    Our younger generation has become so brainwashed and needs to feel ego stimulation so
    they believe anything they hear, so they can be part of the
    “ In Crowd”
    We have raised an emotionally Narcissistic Sick generation that feels the need to listen to this Terrorist Threat. This is what you get when everyone in society gets a trophy!! We let Academia Over Power our Common Sense!!

    100% TRUE!!
    This Marxist Communist Nazi type Idealogy has been gradually taking root since the Bill Clinton years,
    Now they are throwing in these people who are Muslim Domestic Terrorist in attempt to Destroy American Values and Democracy!
    These ideas follow Hitler’s “ Mein Kampf” book page by page!
    We must start speaking out, talking about what this really is. The Democrats are depending on our natural social civility and manners of never fighting back as nasty as we can!
    Hitler gained control and overthrew Germany’s Democratic Republic and made it a Marxist Socialist Country because people thought it could never happen to them and they were Complacent to Act Against It until it was too late to stop!
