Today at the 911 Memorial Ceremony for victims that lost their lives in the horrifying attack on our country on September 11th, one victim took the time to painstakingly address the blatant insensitivity Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar used when describing the terror attacks as “some people did something.”
According to the NY POST, Nicholas Haros Jr., wearing a black T-shirt with the words “Some people did something?,” singled out the congresswoman and the other members of “the Squad” after reading the names of the dead, including that of his mother, Frances Haros, at the ceremony.
“’Some people did something,’ said a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota,” said Haros in reference to Omar.
Amid some applause, Haros continued, “Today I am here to respond to you exactly who did what to whom.”
“Madam, objectively speaking, we know who and what was done. There is no uncertainty about that. Why your confusion?” Haros asked. “On that day, 19 Islamic terrorist members of al Qaeda killed over 3,000 people and caused billions of dollars of economic damage. Is that clear?”
“But as to whom,” Haros continued, “I was attacked, your relatives and friends were attacked, our constitutional freedoms were attacked and our nation’s founding on Judeo-Christian principles were attacked.”
“That’s what some people did,” Haros railed. “Got that now?”
He went on: “We are here today, Congresswoman, to tell you and the Squad just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please. American patriotism and your position demand it.”
Haros’ mother died in the 9/11 terror attacks at the age of 76.
“Mom, we always miss you and love you very much,” he said, before slamming Omar.
Last year, during the 9/11 ceremony, Haros also targeted politicians, pleading that the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks stop being used “as props.”
“Stop. Stop. Please stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props for your political theater,” Haros said at the time. “Their lives, sacrifices and death are worth so much more. Let’s not trivialize them or us. It hurts.”
“This year, a representative of the House referred to our loss as just another incident,” Haros said. “This year, a network commentator said the president’s performance in Helsinki was a traitorous act as was 9/11 … And last week, a senator attacked a Supreme Court nominee and called him a racist for alleged comments after 9/11.”
Meet Nicholas Haros Jr.
His mom was a victim in the 9/11 attacks.
He has a strong message for Ilhan Omar, who believes that “some people did something.”
God Bless this man.
