She said that on 9/11, ‘some people did something,’ which harmed all Muslims. She also encouraged the group to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable” in order to counter what she claimed was Muslim-Americans being treated as second class citizens.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL who was wounded in Afghanistan, was derided the left and accused of “playing the wounded victim” after he called for “deference” in discussions of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Crenshaw, 35, who wears an eye patch after losing his right eye in Afghanistan, has received two Bronze Stars, including one with valor, the Purple Heart, and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor.
It gets worse. They called him some of the sickest epithets ever seen against a wounded war vet: ‘Captain shithead,’ ‘Nazi,’ ‘eyeless f–k,’ according to the Examiner’s headline.
And it wasn’t just anonymous Internet trolls from Russia pretending to be leftists, it was real leftists we’ve already heard enough from as it is:
Talia Lavin, a New York University journalism professor who resigned from the New Yorker last year after she incorrectly identified a U.S. immigration agent as a Nazi sympathizer, slammed Crenshaw as “captain shithead” on Twitter. “The real victim, captain shithead, speaks,” wrote Lavin, linking to Crenshaw’s video.
Freelance writer Rob Rousseau wrote to Crenshaw, “You’re deliberately lying about what [Omar] said you eyeless fuck.” The comment appears to have been removed.
Other leftists were also named leftists, the ‘Nazi’ hurlers.
When we say ‘rabid left,’ this is what we mean by rabid left.
Two things leap out.
One, we’ve seen Crenshaw before, he’s the guy who responded with magnaminity to the young actor on Saturday Night Live who originally made fun of his war wounds. He even helped the actor save face by appearing on a skit with him, a very funny one, which smoothed things over on the matter. The other thing he did was call the man up to comfort him when he attempted suicide. That is class, with a capital ‘C.’
The other thing is that the left screamed to the high heavens when President Trump made some admitted ill-advised rude remarks about the distinguished war record of John McCain. Most of us can accept that a person can have a fine war record and still be a bad politician, or a politician we disagree with, which describes McCain to a ‘T.’
This week was a new low in partisanship & dishonesty.
I watched in disbelief as some covered for Omar by coming after me with lies & absurd claims that I don’t support 9/11 victims.
Sen. Tammy Duckworth is a Democratic politician with a fine war record and wretched political ideas, yet we don’t see Republicans hurling abuse at her over her military service. Are there any Republicans out there calling her a ‘murderer’? They sure as heck are hurling that at Crenshaw. Republicans, by contrast, thank Duckworth for her service and disagree with her on her politics. This called being an adult.
Calling people names when you don’t have any logical argument is what children do… but that is the mentality of most leftists, so such tactics make sense.
