Washington (CNN)Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar's fellow freshman lawmakers are coming to the Minnesota congresswoman's defense Thursday after remarks she made referencing 9/11 as "some people did something" were criticized in a New York Post cover that featured the Twin Towers.

Speaking at an event last month for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Omar said, "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."

The New York Post published Thursday's tabloid with the quote from Omar, who is one of two Muslim women in Congress, and an image of the Twin Towers engulfed in flames from September 11, 2001. Under the picture is the headline "Here's your something."

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York slammed the New York Post's cover as "horrifying" and "hateful."

"The NY Post knows exactly what it's doing - taking quotes out of context and evoking painful imagery to spread hate and endangering the life of Rep. Omar. Shame on them, and shame on Rupert Murdoch," said Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a Michigan Democrat and the other Muslim woman in Congress, on Twitter.

Hey, kids, sorry to tell you this, but she did say it, and maybe you should be be a tad more upset about that than you are about a newspaper boldly headlining her words.

Typical of Muslims, they show no regret, speak with no remorse. Muslim disdain is never toward their own, for their behaving with hatred. Muslim disdain is reserved for those who would dare try to curb their civil liberties. Theirs is the reaction of the totalitarian! Their perspective is very dangerous.

In the future Omar, if "something" else happens, you should expect there to be more consequences. That's how it works when "some people" practice "something" called terrorism, i.e., those violent, lawless acts of mayhem done to innocents by those who can show no regret.
