The son of one of the victims from the September 11th attacks unloaded on freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for her infamous comments regarding the event.
While speaking at a New York City event commemorating the 18th anniversary of the devastating attacks that shocked the nation and killed nearly 3,000 people, Nicholas Haros, Jr. honored his late mother, Frances, and his “over 200 personal friends and co-workers” who perished in the attacks.
“I am here today to honor my 76-year-old mother, Frances, on the solemn 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Mom, we always miss you and love you very much,” he said. “This day I also remember over 200 personal friends and co-workers that I knew that died.”
“‘Some people did something,’ said a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota to support and justify the creation of CAIR [the Council on American-Islamic Relations]. 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? 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?”

He continued on to rail against the Minnesota congresswoman for her remarks, pointing out that the founding principles of the country and every American were “attacked” during the tragedy, and asking Omar if she now understood “what some people did.”
Haros then called on Omar to “show respect” to the victims who perished.
“But as to whom? 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. Got that now?”
“We are here today congresswoman to tell you and ‘the Squad’ just who did what to whom,” added Haros. “Show respect in honoring them, please.”
Omar had made the infamous comment while speaking at an event for the Center of American-Islamic Relations in March.
