Ocasio-Cortez Defends Omar's 9/11 Comments By Mocking War Hero Dan Crenshaw

Ocasio-Cortez Defends Omar's 9/11 Comments By Mocking War Hero Dan Crenshaw

Papazian told Fox News that her bid to run for Congress against Ocasio-Cortez partly stems from the fiasco over the Amazon deal.

Omar delivered the keynote speech at a fundraiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on March 23 where she was recorded describing the September 11 attacks as merely an event where "some people did something".

Ocasio-Cortez was reacting to criticism by Crenshaw - a retired Navy SEAL who lost an eye fighting al-Qaida - of Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar's characterization of 9/11 as "some people did something."

"Too bad for them, because we don't flinch", Ocasio-Cortez wrote.

Ocasio-Cortez smacked Crenshaw on Twitter for declining to cosponsor the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund while having the 'audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes'.

That prompted Ocasio-Cortez to defend her Minnesota ally, going after the Texas congressman for not co-sponsoring the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund. "In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind nearly ALL US domestic terrorist killings". House Democrats are rounding the first 100 days of their new majority taking stock of their accomplishments, noting the stumbles and marking their place as a frontline of resistance to President Donald Trump. "Why don't you go do something about that?" she tweeted at Crenshaw.

"It is patently obvious that @IlhanMN wasn't trying to downplay the 9/11 attacks".

Papazian has said she chose to run after Ocasio-Cortez's opposition to the Amazon deal led to the company's decision to cancel its plans to build a second headquarters in NY.

Crenshaw served five deployments overseas - while on his third combat tour, he was hit by an IED blast during a mission in Afghanistan that destroyed his right eye and badly injured his left eye.

Ocasio-Cortez also accused Republicans, conservatives, and the New York Post of inciting violence against women of color. "I hope leaders of both parties will join me in condemning it".

But in a letter Friday to the New York Democrat, Barr said she must first offer a mea culpa to "our colleague and patriot to our country".

The liberal watchdog Media Matters for America, which did the research, called it an obsession and said the first term representative has become the network's latest bogeyman, "someone for hosts and guests to demonize, knock down and refer to whenever grievances need to be aired against the Democratic Party".
