Women's March Petition Calls For Trump's Removal From Facebook & Twitter For Tweet Critical of Omar's 9/11 Comment

I feel bad for women. I feel bad in the sense that the media, politicians and celebrities have pushed the anti-Semitic Women’s March activist group as the representative for all women. Any time they have a march, it’s plastered all over the television without any way to escape the insanity that permeates these marches on a yearly basis.

The group that’s represented by such “reputable” figures as Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory launched a petition on the Action Network website calling for social media platforms Facebook and Twitter to “permanently suspend” President Donald Trump’s accounts because of a video the president posted about Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) flippant 9/11 comments to Twitter on Friday.

Isn’t “permanently” suspending someone tantamount to banning them? That must be another “PC” cleansed way of saying “banning.”

According to the petition, which over 5,000 signatures away from reaching its goal of 25,600:

Trump has launched a despicable and irresponsible attack on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, sharing a propaganda video questioning the Congresswoman's loyalty to the United States. This is as dangerous as it is unprecedented. Representative Omar is receiving countless death threats as the president of the United States is inciting violence against a Black Muslim sitting member of congress, putting her life at risk.

Tell Jack Dorsey from Twitter and Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook to take down Trump's hateful video and permanently suspend his Twitter account. We don’t have to give hate a platform.

Which video is the Women’s March up in arms about?

Of course, Omar and her defenders are claiming that there’s a racist or Islamophobic aspect to Trump’s tweet. But for those of us that are old enough to clearly remember what happened on September 11, 2001, including Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), her dismissive comments about that day absolutely deserved the same level of mocking she and her ilk dish out to anyone that disagrees with them on a daily basis.

What’s funny about this whole ordeal is the fact that the basis for Omar’s “some people did something” comment about 9/11 turned out to be completely false.

“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,” Omar said initially during her speech at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) event last month.

PolitiFact reported on Monday that Omar’s observation that “CAIR was founded after 9/11” is “false.”

According to PolitiFact:

CAIR stands for the Council on American-Islamic Relations. It was founded in 1994, according to its website, "to promote a positive image of Islam and Muslims in America." It annually issues reports on the status of American Muslim civil rights; reports on its website date back to 1996.

CAIR’s first report came in response to the 1995 attack on the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, after which some people initially blamed Muslims for the bombing. The actual bomber was a white native-born American, Timothy McVeigh.

PolitiFact got a comment from Jeremy Slevin, a spokesman for Omar, and told the publication that “CAIR had doubled in size after the Sept. 11 attacks.

“It was a misstatement, and she now knows that it was founded earlier,” Slevin said.

“She now knows?” Why make the comment in the first place if you’re not sure what you’re saying is accurate? Maybe Omar is just going by what her buddy, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez once said about being accurate.

“There’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right,” Ocasio-Cortez said in January.

Another day, another pointless example of “activism,” and yet another example of the far-left having absolutely no idea what they’re talking about or what they're doing.
