The Left continues to show there is no depth that they will not sink to for political points, including attacking a war hero and accusing him of not doing enough to combat terrorism.
Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw diligently served to protect Americans in the war-torn battlefields of Afghanistan as a Navy SEAL and even lost an eye combating terror threats there.
After returning to his home state of Texas, the highly-decorated soldier decided he wanted to continue serving those in his home district and ran for public office.
Now the veteran is in a tiff with the brazen new face of the Democrat Party, the 29-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who BizPac Review describes as a “bartender-turned-socialist politician.”
According to BizPac Review, the tiff began when Ocasio-Cortez’s friend and fellow Democrat Ilhan Omar seemingly diminished the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, which claimed the lives of 3,000 Americans.
From BizPac Review:
In responding to a tweet from Crenshaw denouncing the insensitive comment from Omar, one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, Ocasio-Cortez had the audacity — if not outright stupidity — to tell Crenshaw that he should “do something” about terrorism, while falsely claiming that the veteran misrepresented Omar’s insult and sharing distorted information about domestic terrorism to pivot away from it.
Ocasio-Cortez was coming to the defense of Omar, a fellow radical leftist, after she found herself yet again at the center of a firestorm for denigrating the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack at the hands of Islamic extremists.
Speaking at a Council on American-Islamic Relations fundraiser last month, she was talking about why the Muslim advocacy group was formed.
“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said.
Just as he did in real life, Crenshaw took to Twitter to defend his fellow Americans.
Crenshaw responded with a tweet which read: “First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something.’ Unbelievable.”
Incoming Leftist meltdown in 3… 2… 1…
“This is dangerous incitement, given the death threats I face. I hope leaders of both parties will join me in condemning it,” Omar tweeted. “My love and commitment to our country and that of my colleagues should never be in question. We are ALL Americans!”
“You refuse to cosponsor the 9/11 Victim’s Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in response to Crenshaw. “In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why don’t you go do something about that?”
Several people quickly jumped in to support Crenshaw. Take a look at these responses:
