Another Illhan Omar controversy? How shocking!
The outspoken left-wing Muslim representative has been showing her true colors time and time again lately – so much so that many outraged patriots are calling for her impeachment!
She has made anti-Semitic comments and shown blatant disregard for our country’s most awful terrorist attack. And now, in a statement she made on Twitter about the tragic fire that destroyed a prominent symbol of the Catholic faith, Omar refused to call the Notre Dame Cathedral what it was – a CATHEDRAL.
Take a look at what Omar tweeted while the cathedral was burning down:
While her own faith of Islam is obviously extremely important to Omar, who recently blamed Americans' response to 9/11 for why Muslims were "treated as second-class citizens" in the country (because that's the biggest takeaway from the events that occurred on September 11, 2001), Omar herself does not seem to be very respectful to religions that aren't her own. Refusing to recognize that the icon of Christianity was anything more than mere "art and architecture" proves this.
We have to ask Omar if, for instance, the Great Mosque of Mecca had burned to the ground instead of the Notre Dame Cathedral, would she refer to the tragedy as simply destruction of "art and architecture"?
Outraged Twitter users are calling Omar out for her omission of the cathedral's name.

Breitbart has more details about the burning of the cathedral:
On Monday, a fire engulfed the ancient cathedral, destroying its timber roof, and bringing down the central spire. People all around the world watched in horror and prayed that the cathedral would be saved, and residents in Paris sang hymns and held a vigil.
The Vatican sent out a message of mourning on Monday, saying, “With shock and sadness, the Holy See received the news of the terrible fire that devastated the Cathedral of Notre Dame, symbol of Christianity in France and the world.”
“We extend our closeness to French Catholics and to the people of Paris and ensure our prayers for the firefighters and those who are doing all they can to deal with this tragic situation,” the Vatican said.
The cathedral is in the process of restoration and recently had sixteen bronze statues removed from the roof area to facilitate work. The fire appears to have started near the roof where work was taking place.
Although no suspicion of foul play has been reported, France has recently suffered an intense period of attacks on its Christian monuments, according to a recent report by the Christian Broadcasting Network.
