On Tuesday morning, the Nation of Islam’s research group defended Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who has come under fire for her comments minimizing the tragedy of the 9/11 terror attacks. The Nation of Islam Research Group, an arm of the Nation of Islam led by notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, tweeted a video in which Farrakhan claims the George W. Bush administration orchestrated the 9/11 attacks.
The tweet came after Omar supporters launched a tweet storm with the hashtag #IStandWithIlhan. The Nation of Islam interpreted Omar’s comments describing the terror attacks (“Somebody did something”) to be an endorsement of the 9/11 truther conspiracy.
“3,133 Scientists Back Ilhan Omar on 9/11,” the Nation of Islam research group claimed. “Deep skepticism exists about the gov’t version of 9/11. Many experts—architects & engineers—say the World Trade Center Towers were destroyed in a controlled demolition. Listen to [Louis Farrakhan].”
