Ocasio-Cortez felt compelled to come to the defense of the anti-Israel Omar and attacked Rep. Crenshaw for the "audacity" to attack Omar. Omar at a speech last month said that "some people did something" as she talked about the creation of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Omar slammed conservatives for attacking her comments in a Twitter post, in which she called out Fox News and Crenshaw specifically, writing that it is a "dangerous incitement, given the death threats I face".
"Too bad for them, because we don't flinch", Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
Stepping into the dustup, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: "In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind nearly ALL US domestic terrorist killings".
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.
Washington Free Beacon editor in chief Matthew Continetti said Friday that the Democratic majority in the House is "in jeopardy" if freshman Reps. She then told Crenshaw, who lost an eye while fighting terrorism in Afghanistan, to go fight domestic terrorism.
'We are getting to the level where this is an incitement of violence against progressive women of color, ' the NY representative said. 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".

Barr appeared on the Fox Business Network on April 4, telling the host he'd show Ocasio-Cortez "the real world implications" of the Green New Deal he called "the centerpiece of the Democratic Party's march towards socialism and their wholesale rejection of individual freedom and free enterprise in America". There are also derogatory allusions to her youth, like when commentator Brit Hume said that "she's kind of adorable in sort of the way that a 5-year-old child can be adorable", according to the research.
