The hard-left has become so brazen in post-Obama America that they will publicly go after decorated war heroes who sacrificed on the battlefield in the never-ending war against terror, as seen on Thursday from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortz, D-N.Y.
The 29-year-old bartender-turned-socialist politician slammed Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, for calling out her colleague, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., for a remark that disparaged the 9/11 terrorist attack that claimed nearly 3,000 lives.
Keep in mind that Crenshaw is a former Navy SEAL who fought in Afghanistan and lost an eye while in theater.
In responding to a tweet from Crenshaw denouncing the insensitive comment from Omar, one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, Ocasio-Cortez had the audacity — if not outright stupidity — to tell Crenshaw that he should “do something” about terrorism, while falsely claiming that the veteran misrepresented Omar’s insult and sharing distorted information about domestic terrorism to pivot away from it.
“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 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why don’t you go do something about that?”

Ocasio-Cortez was coming to the defense of Omar, a fellow radical leftist, after she found herself yet again at the center of a firestorm for denigrating the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack at the hands of Islamic extremists.
Speaking at a Council on American-Islamic Relations fundraiser last month, she was talking about why the Muslim advocacy group was formed.
“CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,” Omar said.
Just as he did in real life, Crenshaw took to Twitter to defend his fellow Americans.
“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something.’ Unbelievable,” he tweeted.
And Crenshaw’s fellow Americans, at least those who appreciate his sacrifice to this great nation, came to his defense. Leading the charge was Katie Pavlich, an editor for Townhall.com and Fox News contributor.
“There are no words for my rage. America needs more heroes like [Dan Crenshaw,]” she tweeted in response to a tweet from Natalie Johnson, who called Ocasio-Cortez’s actions “astounding.”

Pavlich was far from the only one to speak out about the attack on Crenshaw. There was some suggestion that this could be a new low for the Bronx Bolshevik, however, it’s a safe bet that Ocasio-Cortez has yet to begin to show us how low she’ll go.
Here’s a sampling of other responses from Twitter:
Are you aware that you’re speaking to a veteran who lost his eye in combat?

She is an absolute disgrace. Watch her facial expression in the clip defending Omar then dragging out the woman of colour card. Even she diesn’t believe it. Truly,truly disgusting. Need more @RepDanCrenshaw‘s and less of her an Omar’s with their hateful divisiveness/identity B.S.

I know I’m late to this party but telling a veteran who literally fought terrorists and lost his eye in combat to “do something?”

AOC is attacking Dan Crenshaw for not fighting for 9/11 victims

Thrashing outrage at a Navy SEAL's disgust over @IlhanMN's EXACT quote is pretty classless. Even by your standards Ms. Ocasio-Cortez.

Woman whose sole contribution to America is an insane plan to ban cows
Talks smack to a guy who lost an eye fighting for it
In defense of a woman who trivialized the death of 2996 people
