Yesterday we told you about the attacks being leveled at Dan Crenshaw by Ilhan Omar over her “Some people who did something” comments regarding 9/11.
Well now AOC is getting into the mix, accusing Crenshaw of drumming resentment towards Omar:
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.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 11, 2019
In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why don’t you go do something about that? https://t.co/rkb92IxkKX
First of all, the quote wasn’t out of context. I checked it myself before I posted on this yesterday.
Also, are you kidding me? Dan Crenshaw has done more to fight for this country with this little finger than she’ll ever do in her entire lifetime.
In case she’s forgotten, Dan Crenshaw lost his eye fighting our enemies in Afghanistan in 2012. He was a Navy SEAL and because of his service earned “2 Bronze Stars (one with Valor), the Purple Heart, and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor.”
And she has the audacity to suggest he’s not fighting for 9/11 victims?
And what’s more…
This is pretty deceptive.
The bill has *not* even been voted on in the House.
A person does *not* have to cosponsor a bill to vote in support of it.

He’s exactly right. You can absolutely support and vote for a bill without cosponsoring it.
Although if this is a bill crafted by Democrats, there may be very good reason why the bill isn’t worth supporting at all. But I digress.
It’s completely offensive for AOC to attack Crenshaw like this when all he did was point out how ‘unbelievable’ Omar’s remarks were about 9/11. He’s not drumming resentment, he’s stating his opinion which happens to be shared by MANY!
