Crenshaw Fires Back After Omar Accused Him of ‘Incitement’ — Says 9/11 Comment Is ‘Still Unbelievable’

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) is fighting back against Rep. Ilhan Omar claiming that he put her in danger after calling her out for avoiding calling the 9/11 attackers terrorists.

The resurfaced video shows Omar speaking at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) event and during her speech referred to the terrorist attack as “some people did something” and how that negatively affected the Muslim community in America.

As IJR Red previously reported, Crenshaw called Omar out on Tuesday over Twitter for the video.

“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something’. Unbelievable,” tweeted Crenshaw.

However, Omar responded to people firing back at her comment, including Crenshaw, calling for lawmakers to condemn what she believed were attacks against her.

“This is dangerous incitement, given the death threats I face,” said Omar. “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!”

The Texas lawmaker and veteran fired back at the congresswoman, pointing out that he never attacked her personally, but was criticizing her not calling them terrorists.

“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.”

This is not the first time that Omar has come under fire.

As IJR previously reported, she took heat over several controversial comments she made regarding Israel, which many viewed as anti-Semitic. When an anti-hate resolution was passed in the House in response to the incident, Crenshaw also criticized the decision to avoid calling Omar out directly in it.

“While I voted for this, let’s be honest about what it really is – a deceitful way for Dems to give Omar cover,” Crenshaw said.

Omar has not apologized or responded to Crenshaw’s latest comments, and it is unlikely the House will take action in this situation.
