Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), an Afghan War veteran who lost an eye in an IED attack, is now under an avalanche of leftist mockery simply for daring to suggest that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) downplayed the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks when she referred to them as “some people did something” in a speech last week.
Crenshaw has been “derided by the left,” the Washington Examiner reports, and mocked for having sustained a war wound, in the days since he tweeted that Omar was the “First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something.’ Unbelievable.”
Initially, the criticism aimed at Crenshaw was just…strange. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), for example, accused Crenshaw of failing to address terrorism because he did not sign on as a co-sponsor to a bill making federal health benefits for 9/11 survivors permanent (Omar is a co-sponsor).
But not only was Crenshaw battling actual terrorists while Omar was plotting a run for Congress and deriding the existence of Israel on social media, but the bill doesn’t require supporters to become co-sponsors.
Over the weekend, Crenshaw posted a video of himself defending his criticism and calling for deference to 9/11 victims in an interview with NBC.
This week was a new low in partisanship & dishonesty.
I watched in disbelief as some covered for Omar by coming after me with lies & absurd claims that I don’t support 9/11 victims.
What a disgusting, dishonest tactic.
Why turn this into a political football?

Crenshaw also spoke with Jessie Water on Water’s World (FOX) about the criticism he has received and the Rep. Ilhan Omar has received since her controversial comments made about 9/11.
