The Democrats and their running dogs in the enemedia are having hissie fits over a poster in the West Virginia statehouse that suggests Americans have forgotten the horrors of 9/11 and the promise to “Never Forget” because Americans are electing pro-jihad, pro-Islamic State Jew-haters such as Ilhan Omar. Indeed, the poster is accurate. Ilhan Omar pushed a judge for lenient sentences for Muslims who joined the Islamic State group. The Islamic State shared the same religious ideology and goals as Al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden. In many cases, the Islamic State was more brutal, more savage than al Qaeda. The poster is correct.

Once again the left equates opposition to jihad terror with islamophobia.
It was not immediately clear who put up the poster, but lawmakers got into a heated dispute over the display. The argument even became physical, leaving a doorkeeper allegedly injured and a lawmaker resigning.
A few Democratic lawmakers condemned the poster and allegedly got into a feud with Anne Lieberman, the House’s sergeant-at-arms, “after she allegedly made an anti-Muslim remark,” NBC News reported. Lieberman denied the remark but resigned Friday following the allegation.
Democratic lawmaker Mike Caputo allegedly injured a doorkeeper during a heated argument, WSAZ reported.
The House has 59 Republicans and 41 Democrats. House Speaker Roger Hanshaw said the incident was being investigated.
“We have allowed national-level politics to become a cancer on our state … to invade our chamber in a way that makes me ashamed,” he said in remarks on the floor. “We can do better.”
Democrat Mike Pushkin called the poster “racist” and “wrong.” He said no Republicans condemned the display.
Poster linking Ilhan Omar to 9/11 causes melee in West Virginia statehouse
NY Post, March 1, 2019:
A poster connecting Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar to the Sept. 11 terror attacks sparked a chaotic scene at the West Virginia statehouse on Friday, where lawmakers got into heated arguments and one staffer was injured, a report said.
- The poster showing the Democratic congresswoman next to the Twin Towers exploding into flames was part of a display for “WV GOP Day,” according to WVNews.
“’Never forget’ —you said….” read the caption of the image with Omar, a Muslim, in her hijab. “I am the proof — you have forgotten.”
Omar is a Somalian refugee and one of the first two Muslim women sworn into Congress this year.
Several Democratic lawmakers condemned the sign, with one delegate calling it ”ugly and “hateful.”
Republicans argued that the poster was a “freedom of speech” issue.
The House’s sergeant-at-arms, Anne Lieberman, was allegedly overheard saying “all Muslims are terrorists,” and resigned over the incident.
During fierce debate in the Capitol rotunda, lawmakers nearly came to blows as one staffer was injured. It was not clear how seriously.
Omar responded to the incident on Twitter by writing, “No wonder why I am on the ‘Hitlist’ of a domestic terrorist and ‘Assassinate Ilhan Omar’ is written on my local gas stations.”
She added: “Look no further, the GOP’s anti-Muslim display likening me to a terrorist rocks in state capitols and no one is condemning them!”
