Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rips Dan Crenshaw over Ilhan Omar 9/11 criticism

GettyImages-1136153632

Ocasio-Cortez's remarks came in response to a fundraising email solicitation from the Ohio Federation of College Republicans with the subject line: "AOC is a domestic terrorist".

Congresswoman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez denounced a conservative group for the incendiary rhetoric against her on Wednesday, highlighting how employing similar language causes a spike in the number of death threats.

"You refuse to co-sponsor the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes", Ocasio-Cortez wrote to Crenshaw on Twitter.

Stepping into the dustup, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: "In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind nearly ALL US domestic terrorist killings".

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". The fund, which helps first responders and others harmed in the 9/11 attacks, is up for renewal.

It is widely known that the AOC, as Ocasio-Cortez is commonly referred to on social media platforms, has some 3.9 million followers on Twitter.


Sitting down with Ocasio-Cortez to discuss her short time inside the beltway and provide her thoughts on 2020 elections was certainly a great get for the must-listen-to podcast.

Crenshaw is a decorated former U.S. Navy Seal who served in the military for over 10 years, including three tours of duty. She then told Crenshaw, who lost an eye while fighting terrorism in Afghanistan, to go fight domestic terrorism.

But Barr in the Friday letter said Ocasio-Cortez's remarks about Crenshaw go too far.

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".
