BOOM: War Hero Dan Crenshaw Obliterates Ilhan Omar With a Single Tweet

To catch you up to date, Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) dismissed the September 11 attacks that left nearly 3,000 dead as “some people did something,” and now everyone who criticizes her is a hate-filled evil bully threatening her very life.

In response to the “some people did something” line, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) — a Navy SEAL who he earned two Bronze Stars and a Purple Heart while serving in the military, losing his right eye in the process — posted a tweet. “First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something,’ ” he said of Omar. “Unbelievable.”

Then President Trump jumped into the fray, posting a video on Twitter with the caption: “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!”

 

After an outpouring of criticism about her “some people did something” comment, Omar said: “This is dangerous incitement, given the death threats I face.” And the Democrats were off — especially those running for president. They all quickly got on the same page, regurgitating the same talking point.

“The President is inciting violence against a sitting Congresswoman—and an entire group of Americans based on their religion. It’s disgusting. It’s shameful. And any elected leader who refuses to condemn it shares responsibility for it,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) wrote on Twitter late Friday.

“Ilhan Omar is a leader with strength and courage. She won’t back down to Trump’s racism and hate, and neither will we. The disgusting and dangerous attacks against her must end,” wrote Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Even Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) weighed in.”Members of Congress have a duty to respond to the President’s explicit attack today. @IlhanMN’s life is in danger. For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, dangerous targeting of a member of Congress. We must speak out.”


But on Saturday, “Crenshaw shot it all down. “Just so we are clear on basic notions of reality: When someone calls out a public official for things they said, it is not endangering their life or inciting violence. Claiming otherwise is just an attempt to silence your critics.”

Never mess with a Navy SEAL.
