FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMED: Syrian Immigrant Who Said 9/11 ‘Changed The World For Good’ Is A Homeland Security Adviser:

Exactly a year later, she claimed that, after September 11, “Being American meant you were white.”

In April 2013, she responded to a tweet from activist Pamela Geller who called the Boston Marathon bombings “jihad” by tweeting: “go fuck yourself.”

As originally reported by The Daily Caller, the subcommittee Alawa serves on instructed the DHS to begin “using American English instead of religious, legal and cultural terms like ‘jihad,’ ‘sharia,’ ‘takfir‘ or ‘umma‘” when discussing terrorism in order to avoid offending Muslims.

Two months before Secretary Johnson created the Subcommittee on Combatting Violent Extremism, Alawa tweeted: “THE US HAS NEVER BEEN A UTOPIA UNLESS YOU WERE A STRAIGHT WHITE MALE THAT OWNED LAND. straight up period go home shut up.”

In September 2014, a week after saying that “9/11 changed the world for  good,” Alawa said that “9/11 is your day to pull out your flag themed clothing, and my day to look behind my back as I walk home.”

Laila Alawa was profiled in a puff piece at CNN earlier this year. Naturally, they couldn’t be bothered to ask her about her more, umm, outré tweets – unlike say the grilling the network gave Florida’s attorney general on Tuesday for not tweeting sufficiently on LGBT issues before the Orlando massacre.
