GOP group sorry for email calling Ocasio-Cortez ‘terrorist’

Crenshaw's tweet had chastised Omar's recent comments about the September 11th terrorist attacks that killed almost three thousand people. She has been on Fox News and given interviews to the New York Post and the Daily News since she announced she was going to run on the GOP line against Ocasio-Cortez.

His comments follow Omar's speech to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) in which she railed against the "second-class" treatment of Muslim people after the 9/11 attacks.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) had a polite but forceful response to spiteful accusations from Reps.

Crenshaw tweeted first about Omar's remarks on Tuesday, sharing a tweet that falsely claimed she had said that she "does not consider" 9/11 "a terrorist attack".

"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.

Crenshaw had already shot down a suggestion from Omar that he was inciting violence against her by criticizing her. "In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind nearly ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why don't you go do something about that?"

Ocasio-Cortez said in a tweet after the email was publicized that such a message "puts me in danger every time".

"This is a really dishonest attack and let me tell you how I am for 9/11 victims and 9/11 first responders". "What has happened in 100 days of the Democratic House is the Democrats have become the party of those three freshman congressmen of far left views, from very, very blue, indigo districts, but that's not how the Democrats won the House". "I hope leaders of both parties will join me in condemning it".

Fox has talked about Ocasio-Cortez's advocacy for a Green New Deal, called her a hypocrite for using cars and has fed off her social media pronouncements.

Papazian's posts are less inflammatory, but in one she did suggest that the "Deep State" was taking its cues from the Netflix television show House of Cards to attempt to undermine the Trump presidency; in another she argued that Americans are now forced to armed themselves because "politicians who take donations from gun control activists have passed unreasonable gun control laws that effectively negate your Second Amendment rights".
