GOP group sorry for email calling Ocasio-Cortez 'terrorist'

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y. listens during a House Financial Services Committee hearing with leaders of major banks Wednesday

Ocasio-Cortez's remarks came in response to a fundraising email solicitation from the Ohio Federation of College Republicans with the subject line: "AOC is a domestic terrorist".

Crenshaw tweeted first about Omar's remarks on Tuesday, sharing a tweet that falsely claimed she had said that she "does not consider" 9/11 "a terrorist attack".

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

"All Rep. Omar had to do was explain herself", Crenshaw said.

Some are targeting outspoken Democrat representatives and multiple people have attempted to harm some, according to Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The former head of the DNC, Ed Rendell, said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's, D-N.Y., decision to defend fellow freshman Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, over her comments about the September 11 terror attacks, was "incomprehensible".

"You refuse to cosponsor the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes", the progressive Ocasio-Cortez argued.

That prompted Ocasio-Cortez to defend her Minnesota ally, going after the Texas congressman for not co-sponsoring the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund.

"So here you go, you guys are breaking news".

Ocasio-Cortez also attacked the New York Post over the "horrifying, hateful cover" they published on Thursday.

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.

But in a letter Friday to the New York Democrat, Barr said she must first offer a mea culpa to "our colleague and patriot to our country". "She parachuted into a congressional district she doesn't even represent and led the parade of grandstanding politicians to tank the deal", Papazian told Fox News.

"For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, risky targeting of a member of Congress". Democrats should call out his bullshit.

The 29-year-old congresswoman stunned the political world when she defeated 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary last year, becoming the youngest woman ever to serve in Congress.
