Ocasio-Cortez Invokes Holocaust To Defend Ilhan Omar

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y. listens to questioning of Michael Cohen President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer at the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington Wednesday Feb. 27 2019. The chair of the Oh College GOP group apologizes for email calling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a "domestic terrorist"

Right-wing media empire Fox News referenced USA lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) 42 days in a row, according to research, for a total of 3,181 unique mentions, leading many to note an editorial "obsession" by the staunchly conservative news giant with the Democratic firebrand.

Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed a Republican colleague as a hypocrite on Thursday while defending fellow freshman Representative Ilhan Omar.

The skirmish began after Crenshaw tweeted his reaction to a speech made by Omar during a Muslim rights group's event, in which she described the September 11 terror attacks as "some people who did something".

Ocasio-Cortez felt compelled to come to the defense of the anti-Israel Omar and attacked Rep. Crenshaw for the "audacity" to attack Omar.

Stepping into the dustup, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: "In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind nearly ALL US domestic terrorist killings".

"This puts me in danger every time", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

Ocasio-Cortez replied, "Thank you for standing up for all of us, Sen".

Cricketer Alex Hepburn facing jail after being found guilty of rape
The judge Jim Tindal then cleared to Alex Hepburn that there is only one sentence and it is inevitable for him now to go to jail. Prosecutors said Hepburn had been "fired up" by his desire to win the competition.

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.

"CAIR was founded after 9/11, because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties", Omar said.

Due in part to her stardom, Ocasio-Cortez is likely to face a number of challengers in both the Democratic primary and in the general election.

Barr noted in his letter to Ocasio-Cortez that Crenshaw served three tours of duty in Afghanistan.

"For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, risky targeting of a member of Congress".

She has become the subject of endless Republican fascination - and vitriol - with a report issued Friday by the left-leaning Media Matters for America that found over the past six months, Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network talked about the congresswoman every single day, mentioning her at least 3,181 times.

An email sent by the Ohio College Republican Federation yesterday called a Democratic congresswoman a "domestic terrorist", a label often used to describe mass shooters and perpetrators of other violent acts. A former reporter for McClatchy's Miami Herald, she also spent several years covering the White House.
