Omar has recently come under fire for comments she made about the September 11 terrorist attacks, when she said the attackers were "some people who did something".

Omar said that "some people did something" as she talked about the creation of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which was formed after the terrorist attacks.

"I said when Omar made her first comments about all about the Benjamin's, referring to Jews, in America, I said that that was worthy of condemning by name", he said.

"From fundraising emails labeling @AOC a domestic terrorist to the constant questioning of @IlhanMN's loyalty to and love of country, the right-wing is actively inciting violence against young progressive women of color in Congress", organizers with the Women's March posted on Twitter.

The freshman congresswoman's approval rating has dwindled since her election win in November thanks to numerous controversies and a firebrand style that tends to turn off many voters, sparking efforts by both Democrats and Republicans to oust the card-carrying Democratic socialist.

Barr noted in his letter to Ocasio-Cortez that Crenshaw served three tours of duty in Afghanistan. She also falsely claimed that the organization was founded after 9/11 when it was actually started in 1994.

Dyer said later that the firing was "not to disperse the meeting but to punish the Indians for disobedience". The Indian Express this past week shared eyewitness accounts compiled by two historians.

Rendell also believes that Omar should have been condemned because of anti-Semitic tweets. The New York Post denounced Omar on their cover on Thursday, which featured an image of the Twin Towers ablaze after the planes hit with the words "Here's Your Something".

"That she would liken 911 to "some people did something" tells you all you need to know about her and what she thinks of America".

Ocasio-Cortez was reacting to criticism by Crenshaw - a retired Navy SEAL who lost an eye fighting al-Qaida - of Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar's characterization of 9/11 as "some people did something."

'So you can't just say that today someone is looking at me unusual and that I am trying to make myself look pleasant. He urged her to apologize before visiting Kentucky, which would be "a step toward restoring a culture of respect among Members of the U.S. House of Representatives - a culture I hold in high esteem".

She then added that her "love and commitment to our country and that of my colleagues should never be in question".

Crenshaw did not immediately respond.
