Dan Crenshaw Uses Just 6 Words To Bury Ilhan Omar and Ocasio-Cortez

Republican Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw responded to Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota on Friday after the duo criticized him for taking offense to Omar’s description of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

“It’s terrorists who killed almost 3,000 Americans — we should talk about it that way,” Crenshaw told NBC News. “We should talk about it with deference.”

Omar delivered the keynote speech at a fundraiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations on March 23, where she was recorded describing the Sept. 11 attacks as merely an event where “some people did something.”

After the Texas Republican replied that it is “unbelievable” that a member of Congress would describe “terrorists who killed thousands of Americans” in such a manner, Omar called on leaders of both parties to join her in “condemning” Crenshaw’s “dangerous incitement.”

“All Rep. Omar had to do was explain herself,” Crenshaw said. “Say whatever she wants. Say she didn’t mean it … diffuse the situation, but don’t double down, all right? Don’t play the victim card and don’t start making accusations of me — I just think that was uncalled for.”

Ocasio-Cortez immediately came to Omar’s defense and accused the former Navy SEAL of not properly supporting 9/11 victims and first responders.

“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 responded to Crenshaw. “In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why don’t you go do something about that?”

Ocasio-Cortez also said Omar has “done more for 9/11 families than the GOP” and that Republicans are “happy to weaponize (Omar’s) faith.”

“It was not taken out of context, by the way, there are a lot of claims that it was — of course, it wasn’t. I think everyone should just look at the clip and decide for themselves,” Crenshaw said. “I don’t think it’s out of line to simply call that out and criticize it.”

“This is the height of partisanship — when we can’t just come together and properly assume that we should not diminish the acts of 9/11 by saying things like ‘some people did something,’” he continued. “That’s not what happened, and we should come together and take note of that.”

Crenshaw also expressed his disappointment in the members of Congress who are “trying to deflect attention from Omar by attacking (him), claiming that (he is) not for 9/11 first responders.”

“This is a really dishonest attack, and let me tell you how I am for 9/11 victims and 9/11 first responders. I’m the guy who went overseas to make sure this never happens again, to take the fight to the enemy that committed these attacks,” he said.

“I would go back and do it every day if I could. So to say that kind of attack, that is the height of partisanship and I’m really disappointed in them saying that.”

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 one. After multiple surgeries, Crenshaw retained sight in his left eye and went on to deploy two more times.

    I think the Muslim woman was the one who did the ‘inciting’. Most loyal Americans do not have a great love for the Muslim terrorists who were responsible for the murder of approximately 3000 Americans (I am sure there were also some Muslims among the victims). It wasn’t Catholics or Jews who did the killing. Does anyone envision what will happen if large numbers of Muslims are integrated into American government positions?

      ” Most loyal Americans do not have a great love for the Muslim terrorists “, Most???? muslims are not loyal Americans , muslims have only one allegiance, and that is to their false god.

    “Right wing extremists were behind almost all domestic terror attacks”, she says. Really? She’s just always spouting off misinformation. Does she think just because she says it, that it suddenly becomes the truth? Here’s some facts, AOC, just to name a few.

    Ft. Hood…. The shooter was Nidal Malik Hassan who was a registered democrat and a devout muslim.
    Columbine… The shooters were Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold who’s families were registered democrats and open liberals
    Virginia Tech….. The shooter was Seugn-Hui Cho who used to send hate mail to President Bush.
    Aurora Theater….. The shooter was James Egan Holmes who was a registered democrat and a local staff worker for the Obama campaign, and was a participant in the occupy Wall St. demonstration.
    Newtown…. The shooter was Adam Lanza who was a registered democrat and frequently made statements that he hated Christians.

      Evangeline, you speak the truth and none of those people should still be drawing a breath. But, what’s his name in the Oklahoma bombing has been sent to see his maker. How does that work. I am certain he is where he belongs, but why the difference?

        The difference is that when the Oklahoma bomber was eliminated; the people in charge weren’t crazed left wingers who force drug companies to stop supplying deadly medicine. That…and the fact that liberal attorneys have worked out how to keep people sentenced to death alive for years by filing appeal after appeal. Since 1983, New Jersey taxpayers have spent $253 Million covering the cost of fighting appeal after appeal from death row inmates. That’s nearly 15 times as much money as it would have cost to sentence them to life without possibility of parole. What we need to do, as a nation, is to pass legislation granting only 4 appeals for any death row inmate; instead of allowing them to appeal time and time again with frivolous claims of unfair treatment. I also think we need to stop using drugs and go back to either hangings, or 2 ounces of lead into their brains.

      It has been a few days, and many articles since dumb ass opened her mouth, again. However, I believe she said “In the past year”, in other words, the Islamic terrorists have taken a break, mainly because they are getting their asses spanked now that we have a real leader in Washington. I haven’t looked up the statistics, mainly because she isn’t worth the effort, but these younger democrats are determined to destroy the nation, and will likely cause even more violence before it is all over. I wish they would just be removed from office, replaced with Americans, and we can move forward with repairing the damage done for 8 long years to this country.

    This pig dares criticize an American who did 5 tours in Afghanistan? A man who lost his eye while on duty? Who in hell does she think she is? Get these Muslims out of our government! We will be destroyed from within if this keeps up.

      Amen! When they attack Crenshaw, they have lost before they speak. None of those leftie Muslims, demonRATS will ever be able to compete with Crenshaw.

    The idea of a Muslim attacking a war hero is bad enough, but for an ex-bartender to join in is really bad news. AOC was a kid when 9/11 happened and probably didn’t realise what was going on. To my mind this would suggest she deal with things she knows about such as how to mix a good Margarita!

    I know I will get called names for what I am about to say but so be it. I speak from my heart and I am disgusted with the Muslims that we have in Government and when you add in that idiot Cortez who doesn’t know her ass from a whole in the ground you have a very good mixture of hate. Omar’s statement about 9/11 makes me sick and here you have it she doesn’t believe it is terrorism whether it be foreign or domestic nd then you have Cortez backing her up. Omar mocks every American and shouldn’t be in politics period. Muslims will be the downfall of America and most Americans can’t see it as they have blinders on. The Navy Seal will understand everything I am saying. I fought in a different war called Vietnam but at the end of the day it is all the same as you are trying to stop evil!
