Rep. Ilhan Omar is in hot water after downplaying the terrorist attack on 9/11.
She dismissed the Islamic terrorist attack simply as “some people did something.”
Now, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just came to her defense by launching a disgraceful attack on this war hero.
Following Omar’s horrible comments, there has been near universal condemnation from figures across the political spectrum.
The New York Post even placed her quote on their front cover, with a picture of the World Trade Center attack shown in the background.

But not everybody is outraged, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is leading the effort to defend Omar.
She has taken to her massively followed Twitter page to claim that the quote is taken out of context, and that Omar has “done more for 9/11 families than the GOP.”
And in one tweet she goes directly after former U.S. Navy SEAL officer, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
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.
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

Ocasio-Cortez tries to claim that Crenshaw, a ten year veteran Navy SEAL, who lost his eye serving our country overseas, isn’t doing enough to help the families of 9/11 victims.
If there is anybody who has a reason to be outraged at somebody downplaying the attack on 9/11, it is Crenshaw.
This isn’t the first time the tandem of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar crossed the line with their comments.
In recent months, Omar has been under fire for making anti-Semitic tweets, nearly resulting in her losing committee assignments.
And her ties to figures connected to radical Islamic extremism continue to come to light.
In fact, the conference she made her 9/11 comments at was for the Center for American Islamic Relations, which is itself considered a terrorist organization in some countries.
All of this is ignored by Ocasio-Cortez, who instead tries to deflect by bringing up right-wing extremism, citing the highly partisan ACLU as a reference.
Honor and service are something that neither Ilhan Omar nor Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez understand.
They are working overtime to fundamentally change the United States, and shift it towards being a socialist country.
It isn’t surprising that they have little respect for veterans, considering the U.S. military has fought against socialism in recent history.
