AOC's Attack on GOP, Dan Crenshaw Over 9/11 Chock-Full of Dishonesty
ALERT: Sign the Petition to Expose AOC
I’m not going to quote the NY Post’s horrifying, hateful cover.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 11, 2019
Here’s 1 fact: @IlhanMN is a cosponsor of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. She‘s done more for 9/11 families than the GOP who won’t even support healthcare for 1st responders- yet are happy to weaponize her faith.
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.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 11, 2019
In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why don’t you go do something about that? https://t.co/rkb92IxkKX
Ocasio-Cortez's attempt to patronize Omar and slander Crenshaw, and Republicans at large, played well with her Twitter followers. However, it didn't hold up under scrutiny.
This is pretty deceptive.— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) April 11, 2019
The bill has *not* even been voted on in the House.
A person does *not* have to cosponsor a bill to vote in support of it.
The most recent action on the bill was referring it to a subcommittee.
Ocasio-Cortez is lying, again— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) April 11, 2019
1. The Republican-controlled House and Senate passed a bill in 2016 allowing the 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia for the attack. Obama vetoed it. The GOP-controlled House and Senate overrode Obama's veto: https://t.co/CfAq6P9UbN pic.twitter.com/GJ2W90OlEk
The 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund has been around for years, Ilhan Omar did not create it.— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) April 11, 2019
The bill was initially signed into law right after 9/11 by President George W. Bush: https://t.co/8VwkpALcGR
It has been renewed multiple times since 9/11 to keep funding going
The bill AOC is talking about has *NOT* been voted on— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) April 11, 2019
217 Republicans and Democrats cosponsored the bill, which means nothing because politicians sign on as cosponsors to bills to pad their resumes with accomplishments
A person does *not* have to cosponsor a bill to vote for it
According to congress.gov, the bill currently has 213 cosponsors. And no, cosponsoring a bill is not the same as voting for it. Given what happened with her Green New Deal in the Senate, AOC should be well aware of that by now.
Republicans always support funding the military more than Democrats do and are much harder on terrorism than Democrats are.— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) April 11, 2019
Omar has called for defunding the entire Department of Homeland Security, which was created after 9/11 to prevent another 9/11 from happening. pic.twitter.com/5CObh1Kq5c
Omar has also advocated for leniency in the sentencing of men who were convicted of trying to join ISIS: https://t.co/xL5XtjHkiN— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) April 11, 2019
Just last week, Omar called for a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood member to be released from prison in Egypt: https://t.co/FmYy5dTGOD pic.twitter.com/GK1WBTfijf
***ALSO***— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) April 11, 2019
Just last month, Jon Stewart, who *hates* Trump, praised the Trump administration for how it was handling the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund and for doing everything in their power to help the victims of 9/11 victims: https://t.co/Tntd24XIZq
AOC’s backed herself into quite a corner. If she continues to push forward with these lies, she’s confirming that she’s willfully dishonest. And if she pleads ignorance of the truth, she admits she’s stupid. In either case, she looks bad.
