My phone seems to take me to Fox News a lot and that is as problem for me. They seem to focus a lot on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and in fact they seem obsessed with her. Then they seem to like to create controversial issue where they really don’t exist at all.
Last week, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn for saying she said something outrageous about 9/11. He claimed Omar was characterizing the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something.” She was addressing a crowd over discrimination that Moslems go through here in the US. Her remarks were taken out of context and he made a mountain out of a molehill. I think for the average person that comment is nothing terrible. But Crenshaw claims otherwise. He is a very conservative Republican and he has gotten a lot of attention from Fox News.
AOC came to Omar’s defense and that immediately caused Fox News to pull out all the stops:
“Rep. D-N.Y., faced mounting criticism Thursday for feuding with freshman colleague Rep. R-Texas, over his response to domestic terrorism.”
She didnt even become a naturalized citizen until the year 2000.
Up until 1998 she was a Somali refugee living in a refugee tent city in
With that unfortunate background theres no way she can see ANYTHING from an "average American" point of view….
It doesn’t take long to see by these comments how prejudice and narrow minded these conservatives, who left these remarks, are. They have written comments that only could apply to a Moslem and there is no respect for Omar at all. These are probably the people that Fox News claims that AOC has “faced mounting criticism.”
Fox News then said of AOC:
Crenshaw is a decorated war hero, who, as a Navy SEAL, lost his eye fighting terrorists in Afghanistan and earned 2 Bronze Stars (one with Valor), the Purple Heart, and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor
