Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rips Dan Crenshaw over Ilhan Omar 9/11 criticism

The former head of the DNC, Ed Rendell, said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's, D-N.Y., decision to defend fellow freshman Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, over her comments about the September 11 terror attacks, was "incomprehensible".

The Ohio College Republican Federation has apologized for an email labeling Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) as a "domestic terrorist", following an outcry, Salon reports.

Nothing that the New York Post or Crenshaw said used "completely out-of-context quotes" from Omar, they quoted her directly. "Why don't you go do something about that?"

No one was attacking Omar's 9/11 remarks because she was a Muslim, people were attacking her remarks because what she said trivialized the deadliest terrorist attack in world history.

"That does not particularly animate me right now", Ocasio-Cortez said.

According to a Time Magazine report, Ocasio-Cortez and her staff received special training from Capitol Police on assessing visitors that may be potential threats. The fund, which helps first responders and others harmed in the 9/11 attacks, is up for renewal.

Depending on the game and the complexity of the ray tracing it uses, faster GTX hardware is sometimes viable. To make it simple, the workload on processing the ray tracing increases with the number of rays involved.

Crenshaw is a decorated former U.S. Navy Seal who served in the military for over 10 years, including three tours of duty.

Barr last month invited Ocasio-Cortez to "go underground" into a Kentucky coal mine so that he can show the author of the sweeping Green New Deal the "real life implications" of the climate change legislation that Republicans say would put coal miners out of business. "I will support whoever the Democratic nominee is", said Ocasio-Cortez.

After the Texas Republican replied that it is "unbelievable" that a member of Congress would describe "terrorists who killed thousands of Americans" in such a manner, Omar called on leaders of both parties to join her in "condemning" Crenshaw's "dangerous incitement".

The 29-year-old congresswoman from NY has reportedly been invited to talk at this year's event, which returns in June after a break in 2018.

"It's terrorists who killed nearly 3,000 Americans, we should talk about it that way", Crenshaw told NBC News.

She did applaud women who were gunning for the top White House position.
