Crenshaw Knocks Dems ‘Playing a Team Sport’ for Their Reluctancy to Condemn Omar’s 9/11 Remark

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) is calling out his Democratic colleagues for “playing a team sport” when it comes to their reluctancy to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) controversial 9/11 comment.

Appearing on “The View” on Monday, the Republican congressman tripled down on his condemnation of Omar’s 9/11 remarks when she said during a viral speech earlier this year that the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, were where “some people did something.”

Watch her previous comment below:

Crenshaw, a Navy SEAL veteran, reiterated why he finds the congresswoman’s comment “unbelievable,” as IJR Red previously reported. Omar then accused him of “dangerous indictment,” which he then responded by telling her not to “play the victim card.”

“Unfortunately, we’re playing a team sport these days,” Crenshaw said during Monday’s segment.

He continued:

“We just had a long discussion about how Republicans feel about Trump. I think you’re seeing the same issues play out on the Democrat side with somebody on their own team, and they’re not sure how to handle it even though they might, behind closed doors, disagree with what she’s saying.”

Co-host Joy Behar swiped back, noting Omar is a “new congresswoman.” Crenshaw is also a freshman congressman.

Watch the video below:

As IJR Red reported, Crenshaw told CBS News on Monday that Omar’s “broader point that she was making is perfectly fine,” but “that doesn’t change the fact that you refer to 9/11 in a dismissive way, both in tone and in gesture, and in words, as some people did something.”

The Republican lawmaker put his foot down that he “wholeheartedly” stands by condemning her comment.

“It is not anybody else’s words that cause these things. It is her words,” Crenshaw said. “And you can’t lay that blame on anybody else.”

Here’s an irony lost on Omar.

Her tribe was losing in the battle between the Somali warlords. Had we not intervened and offered her family shelter she’d be dead or someone’s sex slave.

She would not hold public office, nor would she be publicly speaking.

She should grateful, kiss the American soil, and celebrate the Constitution which allows her to run her mouth.

The Dims can’t even castigate Omar for her anti-Semitism, despite Jews being among their biggest donors and supporters. What makes Crenshaw believe that they’ll do a thing about her 9/11 remarks.

Additionally, many on the Left wing believes America “deserved” it.
