Rep. Ilhan Omar was back in the news for the words the came out of her mouth. This time referring to 9/11 as “just some people did something.” It could be dismissed as a politician having a brain fart. But when you factor in her propensity for anti-semitism, a pattern emerges. Omar’s colleague in the house, Dan Crenshaw, took offense to her comments. To which the congresswoman attacked him, claiming he was “inciting violence against her.” By repeating her words back to her.
Crenshaw wasn’t having it.
1. I never called you un-American.
2. I did not incite any violence against you.
3. You described an act of terrorism on American soil that killed thousands of innocent lives as “some people did something.”
It’s still unbelievable, as is your response here. https://t.co/SsfWYepOS1

This is common for the left. Their extremist members say ridiculous things. So the left creates rules for why you can’t criticize them like you would any other politician. To defend Omar, leftists have even gone so far as to accuse other Democrats of being Islamophobes. That’s the game the left plays. We cannot let them get away with such obvious, political tactics. You cannot just say something offensive, then claim violence when someone simply repeats what you said back.
Here’s what Omar should’ve done:
They just quoted you, honey bunny. My advice is just to brush it away as “some people did something." https://t.co/mfe8e9bgiz

We need more leaders like Dan Crenshaw who aren’t going to play the left’s game. And keep pushing back for small victories.
