Whether the Nashville Bomber—Anthony Quinn Warner—was officially a ‘terrorist’ is yet to be determined. But many people are already weighing in with their own thoughts on that question.
In a twist of irony, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) wants the Nashville bomber to be labeled a terrorist. This is the same legislator who shies away from labeling Islamic terrorists as such (VIDEO BELOW).
Omar Retweeted this on Monday:
Some followers offered clarification, however, on whether the Nashville bomber was technically a terrorist:
CBS affiliate WVLT 8 in Knoxville, Tenn. explained why investigators are not classifying it a terrorist act at this point:
“When we assess an event for domestic terrorism nexus, it has to be tied to an ideology. The use of force or violence in the furtherance of a political or social ideology,” said Doug Korneski, the FBI Special Agent in Charge.
Omar’s opposite stance on Islamic terrorists:
Omar casually referred to the 9/11 terrorists as ‘some people who did something’. This was when she spoke to the Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR) in April of 2019. Keep in mind the DOJ found CAIR to be an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case.
- Immediately after being elected as a state representative in Minnesota in 2016, Omar asked a judge to show “compassion” and a “restorative approach to justice” to 9 men charged with trying to join ISIS. “This ruling can set a precedent and has the potential to be a landmark case in addressing extremism,” she argued.
- In 2019 former KKK leader David Duke praised Omar for her anti-Semitic statements. She claimed Israel has “hypnotized” the world. Duke claimed Omar was “…NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!”
