Ilhan Omar is relishing the criticism she received after objecting to a Christian group singing songs of worship on a plane prior to the Easter holiday, mocking those offended as “snowflakes.”
Omar over the weekend shared a video of a group singing on an airplane which had the description, “Worshipping Jesus 30,000 feet in the air!”
Minnesota Democrat Lisa Grass shared her video as well as her thoughts on the possible outcomes if a group Muslim prayer on an airplane.
Her family, for example.
“I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I am on a plane,” she chastised. “How do you think it will end?”

Ernest Owens, editor-at-large of Philadelphia Magazine, responded to her tweet saying, “A point was made.”
Omar liked his tweet and appeared to be enjoying the backlash from critics.
“And the original snowflakes had a complete and glorious meltdown,” she added along with a fingernail painting emoji, which apparently is supposed to indicate some level of indifference to the backlash.

A congresswoman who has been in serious trouble for making incendiary comments often gets in trouble. The incident that led to the terrorist attack that killed 57 Americans involved plane-riding radical Islamists.
Omar appeared to downplay 9/11 in comments that surfaced 2019 when he described why the Council on American-Islamic Relations was founded (CAIR).
“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,” she said.
Terrorists killed 3,000 people, mostly Americans, on September 11, 2001.

Omar made comments last year that seemed to compare actions by Israel and the United States to those of the Taliban or Hamas.
“We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity,” she tweeted. “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.”
All victims of human rights violations must be held accountable and treated equally.
Unimaginable atrocities have been committed by Hamas, Israel and Afghanistan.

There are no regrets
A Squad member will double down on these remarks, stating that she doesn’t regret making the analogy.
Omar insisted that she was speaking specifically about incidents regarding ICC (International Criminal Court) cases and was “in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems.”

Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has described Omar as a “Jihad Squad member” over her history of controversial remarks about America.
Lauren Boebert should be commended for her incredible takedown of Ilhan Omran and Co.

“The Jihad Squad member from Minnesota has paid her husband, and not her brother-husband, the other one, over $1 million in campaign funds,” Boebert said in a floor speech. “This member is allowed on the Foreign Affairs Committee while praising terrorists.”
