(TheRedWire.com) – An unnamed man led a group of passengers on a commercial airline in a Christian song to celebrate Easter weekend. For an unknown reason, far-left Squad member Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) felt the need to Tweet negatively about the event. Alluding to anti-Muslim hate, Omar, a Muslim, tweeted, wondering how it would work out if she and her family prayed publicly the next time they flew on a plane. It’s not the first time the controversial Congresswoman has gotten herself into trouble, but this time she got rather salty after her tweet elicited backlash.
Is she driven by her sense of moral superiority?

As one might expect by now, Omar seemed to delight in the controversy. She referred to her critics as snowflakes who were having a glorious meltdown. Long-standing rival and critic Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) mocked Omar for anti-Christian hate, noting that the Squad member helped propel the message of the songs to 33 million people by posting the clip on Twitter. Omar responded by saying Boebert needed to stop projecting bigotry while at the same time calling her a religious bigot.
Anti-Christian hate? You need to stop projecting your bigotry. Religious bigots like you always think others hold the same hate they have in their hearts.
It’s Ramadan and I am gonna pray for y’all.
May God cleanse your hearts. https://t.co/QkRb0cXTvt

Numerous conservatives chimed in to mock Omar. Ben Shapiro said as a Jew, he believed the country was better with more Christian praise music, not less. Steven Crowder asked if a mass shooting or singing on a plane was worse.
So, what do you think?
Did Omar deserve the backlash?
