Yesterday Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw tweeted a video of Ilhan Omar referring to 9/11 as “Some people who did something”.
He thought it was unbelievable that she would refer to the Muslims who killed nearly 3,000 people on 9/11 in that way.
Here’s the video:
Ilhan Omar mentions 9/11 and does not consider it a terrorist attack on the USA by terrorists, instead she refers to it as “Some people did something”, then she goes on to justify the establishment of a terrorist organization (CAIR) on US soil. pic.twitter.com/ixP3BJfqxS

And the original tweet by Crenshaw:
First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as “some people who did something”.

That video was then discussed on Fox News this morning, with Brian Kilmeade wondering if Omar is really an American first:

A little while ago, Ilhan Omar took to Twitter and accused both Crenshaw and Kilmeade of “dangerous incitement” and called own leaders of both parties to condemn their words:
This is dangerous incitement, given the death threats I face. I hope leaders of both parties will join me in condemning it.
My love and commitment to our country and that of my colleagues should never be in question. We are ALL Americans! pic.twitter.com/foTZMpiZKv

And just now, Crenshaw responded to Omar ridiculous comments a truth bomb!
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

He’s absolutely right. He didn’t incite any violence against her and neither did Kilmeade. Kilmeade’s comments were certainly more provocative, but he didn’t call for violence against her in any way.
All Crenshaw did was call her out for her offensive comments about 9/11.
The real question is why is she trying to silence people from legitimate criticism of her? I get that she’s been under fire all year because she can’t keep her anti-Semitic mouth shut, but to call these remarks by Crenshaw and Kilmeade as ‘dangerous incitement’ is patently ridiculous.
She’s clearly trying to play the victim card after being under fire all year for her anti-Semitism. And given the way Democrats have treated her thus far this year, they will probably come running with plenty of condemnation for Crenshaw and Kilmeade. And so will a few RINOs too.
