Ilhan Omar says death threats have surged since Trump’s 9/11 tweet

Rep. Ilhan Omar says she’s faced increased death threats since President Trump spread around a video that purports to show her being dismissive of the 2001 terrorist attacks. Omar’s statement followed an announcement by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that she has taken steps to ensure the safety of the Minnesota Democrat.

Death threats are a bit extreme for being a total dick of a human being. Though I don't see why she is shocked? in this day and age people get death threats for wearing a maga hat, posting things on social media or generally pissing off people on the extremes of the political compass. sure have them looked into, if need be, but don't play the victim, when you know what to expect.

Shut up literally everyone gets death threats. You’re not special and you’re definitely not the victim. The real victims went down in those towers 18 years ago, or lost family and friends in the towers, or were near the towers and now are suffering from health complications from the air.

Omar and AOC just need to shut the fuck up. Their mouths are their own worst enemy.

Death threats are just a "thing that happened" so its no big deal. Seriously though what is it with the left and aspiring to be a victim?

Bitch I watch Youtubers that get death threats weekly, you are not special just because you get one mean letter that I doubt says more than "F you" or "Go back to Syria" or some shit like that. But I will grant that there could be some death threats given there are a lot of people in America let alone the world.

Never trust a Mucking Fuslim. Their religion urges them to lie to Infidels. It is called Taqqiya. Look it up.

How does she know that the increase isn't from her brainless statement " ...some people did something...", How can she possibly credit it to Trump??

Why is this terrorist in a leadership position? I’d bet she’d feel joy in her heart if/when another major terror attack happens in the US.

Do these fucking people not get how the internet works? Find me a public figure that hasn't received death threats online.... there's literally not one. This is such a lazy and over used excuse to divert attention away from her comments in an attempt to look like a victim. Sorry missy, that shit doesn't work anymore.

I think death threats may have surged in response to her opinions on 9/11 gaining more media attention. If she were smart she would step up and address it in a dignified and professional way but is instead whining about it. Politicians get death threats. This is not news.

Ilhan, maybe it was your own rhetoric.

I’m sure Trump gets more death threats than she does, to my knowledge he isn’t whining about it. With that said it is a coward move to send anyone regardless of their political standings a death threat.

I would hope then that she would be reporting each and every one to the DOJ so they can investigate. If he hasn’t I have a feeling she’s being hyperbolic.
