NY Post Draws Congressional Ire After Quoting House Rep on Front Page

The imagery was called “ugly” by some, but sometimes the truth itself is heinous and vile.

The truth is never in poor taste.

This is a steadfast reality that should be adhered to in all but the most delicate and rare of situations.  We’ve all heard that honesty is the best policy, and that may be ostensibly true, but in some cases a paraphrasing of this rule is needed.

If you don’t do anything wrong, you can’t get caught.

This is something that I would often remind one of my previous, crooked employers whose schemes and scams ran the gamut from petty foibles to grand larceny.  Some people never learn, however, and are exposed for their grievances.

Such is the case this week as the New York Post displayed their sincere anger over a statement made by first-term Congresswoman Ilhan Omar regarding the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001.

Omar’s inflammatory characterization of this infamous day boiled down to “some people did something”…four words that the NY Post used to lambast the freshman representative.

Now, democratic lawmakers are crying foul.

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York slammed the New York Post’s cover as “horrifying” and “hateful.”

Ocasio-Cortez pointed to Omar’s co-sponsorship of a bill that would reauthorize the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.

“She’s done more for 9/11 families than the GOP who won’t even support healthcare for 1st responders- yet are happy to weaponize her faith,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter.

Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts accused the Post of “manipulating” Omar’s remarks, and said that her full comments “clearly speak” to Islamophobia in America post-9/11.

Ilhan Omar is certainly entitled to her opinion on the gravity of 9/11, but she in undoubtedly intelligent enough to understand that her nonchalant description of the event would ruffle feathers.

And, given just how media-savvy our 2018 freshman class in Congress is, maybe this was no mistake at all.
