Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on Friday slammed Republicans after a poster linking her to the 9/11 attack was hung in the West Virginia statehouse, saying it’s “no wonder” she is on the “hit list” of a domestic terrorist.
“No wonder why I am on the ‘Hitlist’ of a domestic terrorist and ‘Assassinate Ilhan Omar’ is written on my local gas stations. Look no further, the GOP’s anti-Muslim display likening me to a terrorist rocks in state capitols and no one is condemning them!” Omar wrote on Twitter.
The poster was reportedly put on display for a “Republicans Take the Rotunda” event. It shows a photo of the Twin Towers in flames with the words, “Never forget – you said….” followed by, “I am the proof you have forgotten,” alongside a photo of Omar.
