Nicholas Haros Jr., whose mother died during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, criticized freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar for her past remarks about 9/11.
“‘Some people did something,’ said a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota, to support and justify the creation of CAIR. Today I am here to respond to you exactly who did what to whom,” Haros said. After some applause, he continued. “Madam, objectively speaking we know who and what was done, there is no uncertainty about that. Why your confusion? On that day, nineteen Islamic terrorist members of al Qaeda killed over 3,000 people and caused billions of dollars in economic damage. Is that clear? 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 was attacked. That’s what some people did! Got that now?” Haros said while wearing what appeared to be a custom shirt bearing Omar’s now infamous quote. His rebuke didn’t end there. “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. For God and country, amen.”
The crowd cheered.

This is not the first time Nicholas Haros Jr. used the ceremony to call out members of Congress. Last year, Haros urged Democrats in Congress to stop “using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater.” Haros then cited several examples of Democrats and the media using 9/11 to attack Donald Trump, as well as his second Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
