Ilhan Omar's Insensitive Tweet on Notre Dame

Yesterday, President Trump was taken to task by the media when he suggested that water could be dropped on the Notre Dame cathedral from the air in an effort to put out the flames. French authorities pointed out that due to the age and condition of the structure, such an effort would cause it to collapse. Meanwhile, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN), fresh off her "some people did something" comment about 9-11, took to Twitter to describe Notre Dame as "art and architecture".

Here is a news flash for the congresswoman. Notre Dame is not a symbol of art and architecture to Catholics and Christians worldwide. It is an iconic religious treasure to them, something clearly lost on Omar. Had the mosque in Mecca burned down, I doubt she would have referredto it solely as "art and architecture".

Notre Dame is not only a symbol of Christianity, it is a symbol of Europe's Judeo-Christian heritage and Western civilization, something Omar clearly has no respect for. Omar could not bring herself to say one word about the religion that Notre Dame represents.

I am hopeful that the tragedy of Notre Dame will re-awaken the French to their religious origins, which most of Europe has lost sight of. That heritage and civilization is well worth fighting for.

As for Ilhan Omar, she has proven on a  weekly basis that she is a disgrace to Congress.
