Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) had a polite but forceful response to spiteful accusations from Reps. Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) that he wasn’t supportive enough of the troops.

“It’s terrorists who killed almost 3,000 Americans, and we should talk about it that way,” Crenshaw told NBC News on Friday. “We should talk about it with deference.”

He was speaking about the controversy surrounding comments from Rep. Omar that appeared to dismiss the gravity of the 9/11 terror attacks by describing it as “some people did something.”

Crenshaw addressed criticism that the comments were taken out of context.

“It was not taken out of context, by the way, there are a lot of claims that it was,” he explained, “of course it wasn’t. I think everyone should just look at the clip and decide for themselves. I don’t think it’s out of line to simply call that out and criticize it.”

He called it the “height of partisanship” that both sides can’t come together and agree that it was improper to “diminish” the attack on U.S. soil.

“All Representative Omar had to do was really, I don’t know, explain herself, say whatever she wants,” Crenshaw continued.

“Say she didn’t mean it,” he offered, “diffuse the situation, but don’t double down, alright? Don’t play the victim card and don’t start making accusations of me — I just think that was uncalled for.”

Crenshaw didn’t shrink from citing his own service in the military when he responded to the Democrats who claimed that he didn’t do enough to support the military. Among those was Ocasio Cortez, who tweeted a scathing attack on the Afghanistan war veteran.

“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,” she tweeted in an attempt to deflect from Omar’s 9/11 comments.

“This is a really dishonest attack, and let me tell you how I am for 9/11 victims and 9/11 first-responders. I’m the guy who went overseas to make sure this never happens again, to take the fight to the enemy that committed these attacks,” Crenshaw responded.

“I would go back and do it every day if I could,” Crenshaw added. “So to say that kind of attack, that is the height of partisanship and I’m really disappointed in them saying that, especially coming from New York.”

Crenshaw had already shot down a suggestion from Omar that he was inciting violence against her by criticizing her.

Here’s the video of Crenshaw’s comments:

    G d bless this man. He has a gift of speaking gently; while remaining strong. Omar, AOC, Tlaib are just the distractions of what’s going on in the background: Ellison is A.G., Andre Carson is another C A I R supporter, more Muslims are coming to politics with their Cult that mandates the Sh’ria take over, our kids being indoctrinated into Is lam with C A I R constantly pushing for special laws to protect Muslims (if a hijab comes off in a fight, it is not a “hate crime:” It’s a fight, for example) by teaching kids how important it is to “respect” Muslims (but not for Muslims to respect Kafirs) . . .

    Always it is the “Radicals” who end up bringing extra rights to the “moderates.” Omar & the rest are the “radicals” of Big Mouths;” & they will keep pushing & pushing until people tire; & decide it’s not worth it. They will not back down; because there are 1400 yrs of experience telling them to continue.

    Islam is an apocalyptic, genocidal, supremacist cult of Death; & it spreads through Lies & Hijrah, or population jihad. When it’s minority, it pushes for equality through victimhood; & as it gainst strength, it gets pushier, as with Omar et al demanding that she can dismiss USA for her & her cult’s sake: Only Mus lims should have rights to slander; & it’s “racist” to object. They will push more & more until they are a majority, at which point they say “majority rules.”

    They’ll also say they’re taking over because no one cared enough to stop them. It is never Islam’s fault. Over 670 million slaughtered in less than 1400 yrs, & it is never Islam’s fault.

    22 Arab countries, 56 Muslim ones, & yet all we hear is how Israel is genociding Arabs (whose population is 8x higher than in 1948), & Buddhists are genociding “innocent” Rohingya Muslims (Afghanistan was Buddhist, 80 million slaughtered; & Sri Lanka & other Buddhist countries are also under invasion).

    This map of the Muslim world is old. It doesn’t show the invasion into EU in the last five or so years, percentages, or Shia/Sunni divide. For Arab countries, all of N Africa, M.E. & into Asia. Islam’s Lies cause Division long before it’s obvious that there’s an Islamization problem. Gender, feminists, antifa, BLM, Socialists, etc., are all from Islam: All the “minorities” give allegiance back to Islam for its “help;” & Arabs are the ones who know this best. Somalia, too; because it is historically a slave-holding country due to trade with the Arabs.

    Americans don’t know their own history, let alone world history; & the Communists (Socialists) & Muslims are making sure now that what is learned is revised toward Islam. Search “Islamization of American schools.” It’s bad enough that the kids now will vote Dem as they graduate; & the wave after them will vote Muslim.

      That is a frightening narrative and it is terrifying as it is true; What is truly terrifying is that the Democrats are cheering on the destruction of Christian’s in America and Democracy, that is their agenda and if they continue to vilify Donald Trump there will be another civil war for sure. For he seems to be the only person standing tall against all these Sores tooled
      Marxist indoctrinated modernist maniacs.

    These women have no clue about truth and Reality. They live cloistered lives compared to Mr. Crenshaw who sacrificed an eye while these witch’s have never sacrificed anything,and been pampered all their lives. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez lied about scrubbing toilets. While Ilhan Omar lied about living in the Congressional District she ran in. Rashida Tlaib joins the List of Anti-Semites, and they all point a finger at Mr. Crenshaw yet forget that they are pointing three at themselves these Hypocrites

    • Bluewren says:

      They are worse than hypocrites they are just dragged up from the gutter without mores or manners and think they can cat scratch at Americans while they suck off American democracy that has been handed to them on a platter.

  • Fran says:

    This idiot is inciting violence to our Country by being in our Society and Government. She is a real trouble maker snd needs to resign. She always has that sarcastic smirk on her face like don’t challenge me I’m a Democrat. She might be in the right Party to be Anti-American but she is in the wrong country to not be called out about it. It’s called Freedom of Speech Omar. By the way Representative Crenshaw THANK YOU for your service. Omar damn you for your hatred for Americans.

  • Fran says:

    AOC you aren’t worth answering you are just plain stupid and you can’t fix stupid just ignore it. Democrats scraped the bottom of the barrel when they got you in office.

  • Michael says:

    They seriously tried to say this man hasn’t done enough? He actually was a soldier who actually fought for our country. And these fucking twats have the balls to criticize him. They can both go to hell as far as I’m concerned. And God bless this man.

  • Linda says:

    He served his country and lost an eye. What have these two ever done?

    • Ahzz says:

      AOC (aka All Out Crazy) – just a bar-fly, bartender tramp.

      Omar – just another moo-slum terrorist supporter of 911 attack.

      That’s it.
