As someone that was in the military on the day of the 9/11 attacks, I can safely say that even from my position of relative safety I can tell you that it was one of the most nerve wracking days of my life.

There are a lot of things about that day that absolutely rattle me when I begin thinking about them.

By the time the sun went down that night the ship that I was stationed to was underway with maybe a half crew since the attack took place during a leave period and half the people that were stationed there were at least a day’s drive and flying was out of the question.

We were out to sea for about three or four days not really knowing when we were going to come back. We came back for about another week to prepare for a deployment that we now had to go on and I remember walking around outside the base and seeing everyone had American flags on their car. It was amazing.

If there was one good thing that came out of the horrible tragedy of the 9/11 attacks it was that it reminded people of our freedoms. What sickens me is that there are people that it inspired to go on a path to want to destroy those freedoms.

Muslim lawmaker Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (Socialist-Democrat, NY) were featured with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and freshman Congresswoman Jahana Hayes (D-CT) on the most recent cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

The intent of the Rolling Stone article appears to be for the purpose of bolstering the Democrat’s false narrative that the party who is fighting to allow babies to die when they are born alive, following a botched abortion are somehow the “party of women.”

The article is filled with fluff and praise for the Democrat women who all fall into one or more victim categories, but it’s the interview with freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who’s able to check off multiple victim categories, that is quite revealing.

The Rolling Stone article by Tessa Stuart begins by addressing Omar’s hijab and why she wears it. Omar admits that she didn’t always wear her hijab; it wasn’t until after the horrible attack on America by Islamic extremists on 9-11, that she chose to wear her hijab to make a statement.

From the article: As a teen in Minnesota, Ilhan Omar didn’t wear a hijab often. “I, regretfully, was one of the folks who would only wear it the days I didn’t have the time or energy to fix my hair,” says Omar, who arrived in the U.S. in 1995 as a refugee of the Somali civil war. Her attitude evolved after September 11th: “I knew we had a responsibility to help shape a narrative about our faith that is positive.”

Omar admits that she didn’t wear the hijab because of her faith, but wore it after 9-11 as a way to defend her faith? Since Omar was elected as a State Representative in Minnesota, she’s done very little to elevate her faith or to show any signs of positivity. She’s been accused of marrying her own brother to help him commit immigration fraud. She’s also been accused of a number of campaign finance violations. Only weeks into her new role as a U.S. lawmaker, Omar falsely accused sitting U.S. Senator, Lindsey Graham (R-SC) of “being compromised” (many believed this was a veiled threat, as she wanted other to believe that someone had the ‘goods’ on Graham that would force him to admit he was gay). More than one anti-Semitic tweet showed up on her personal account. Omar’s defense was that she was confused about why the tweets were offensive to Jews?

To date, Omar shows no signs of helping to shape a positive image of either herself or her faith.
