Nothing that the New York Post or Crenshaw said used "completely out-of-context quotes" from Omar, they quoted her directly.
Papazian, who writes for medical trade journals, leads an anti-AOC Facebook group called "Bronx Bolshevik Bulletin" and has written for American Greatness, a pro-Trump political blog best-known for an anonymous post declaring the 2016 race "The Flight 93 Election" that compared the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency to armed hijackers flying an airplane: "Charge the cockpit or you die", wrote author Michael Anton, who later went on to serve in the Trump administration. If Ocasio-Cortez wants any advice on wooing the Glastonbury crowd, she can call on the leader of the opposition, who has said how much he admires her.

Omar delivered the keynote speech at a fundraiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on March 23 where she was recorded describing the September 11 attacks as merely an event where "some people did something". "What has happened in 100 days of the Democratic House is the Democrats have become the party of those three freshman congressmen of far left views, from very, very blue, indigo districts, but that's not how the Democrats won the House".
Nearly immediately, Ocasio-Cortez was excoriated for having the audacity to tell a man who lost his eye in service to the country to "go do something" about terrorism.
"Here's 1 fact: @IlhanMN is a cosponsor of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. "We apologize to Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez for the use of unacceptable language in this email, and we do not approve of the message conveyed".More news: National Hockey League suspends Lightning star Nikita Kucherov one game for boardinig
In 2016, the Republican-controlled House and Senate passed a bill that allowed the victims of 9/11 to sue the Saudi Arabian government over the terrorist attacks.
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., made a similar point in a Wednesday tweet in the wake of a "Fox & Friends" segment criticizing her comments about the 9/11 terrorist attacks. She then told Crenshaw, who lost an eye while fighting terrorism in Afghanistan, to go fight domestic terrorism.
Ocasio-Cortez was responding to a jarring New York Post cover featuring the World Trade Center towers in flames on the day of the attacks.More news: China's exports rise, but imports shrink for a fourth month
