Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez supports boycotting the New York Post because it published a photograph of the September 11 terrorist attacks after Ilhan Omar described the attacks as “some people did something”

Ilhan Omar recently said the following: (the bolding is mine)

“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”

In response, the New York Post published the following on its cover:

The cover shows a photograph of the World Trade Center on fire after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The top of the cover says:

Rep. Ilhan Omar: 9/11 was ‘some people did something’

The bottom of the cover says:

Here’s your something

2,977 people dead by terrorism

In response to this cover, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez supported a boycott of the New York Post. She made the following tweet: (original, archive)

The text of Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet states:

“Two years ago, Bodega owners across NYC (& cheered by neighbors) shut their shops citywide to protest Trump’s #MuslimBan.”

“Today, that same community is banding together to reject sales of the NY Post at bodegas citywide.”

“This is what real unity (& NYC solidarity) looks like”

Ocasio-Cortez made her tweet in response to a tweet by Dr. Debbie Almontaser, which said:

“Yemeni Americans held a 1,000 bodega strike against the #MuslimBan, tonight we just declared a boycott of the racist NY Post! Starting tomorrow morning Yemeni American merchants will be rejecting the sale of the NY Post! NY Post take your papers back! #BoycottNYPost”

Wow.

All the New York Post did was tell the truth.

And now a member of the U.S. Congress supports boycotting it for telling the truth.

And two members of Congress are grossly downplaying the severity of the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil in the entire history of our country’s existence.

That’s really despicable.
