What About 9/11?

Closing Thought–15Apr19

I am sick of these “people”(I use the term reluctantly) that are all over the Omar thing are the ones that use 9/11 as a political weapon……like the newest toad from Texas, and they have many……Rep. Crenshaw…

This from Shareblue Media…..*****I post most of the article because I have some readers that read the title and maybe the first couple of sentences and think they have a grip on what I may post about……my apologies to the American Independent******

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) reportedly told a New York City firefighter who survived the 9/11 attacks that he was too busy to listen to concerns about helping victims of the worst terrorist attack in American history.

“He really didn’t want to talk to us,” Rob Serra, told the NY Daily News about his encounter with the recently elected Republican. The firefighter told the paper Crenshaw said he was “too busy” to speak.

When Serra approached Crenshaw about renewing the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund during a visit to Capitol Hill in March, “He said he didn’t have any information and that his staff would take care of it.”

The compensation fund has recently had to cut its payouts to first responders and others who were hurt in the attacks, and needs Congress to authorize more money for its ongoing operation.

A total of 81,404 Americans rely on the fund, including 375 Texas residents.

Despite his callous stance, Crenshaw recently tried to use 9/11 as a political weapon.

Echoing right-wing media outlets like Fox News, Crenshaw falsely alleged that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) had insulted the memory of 9/11. Omar was pointing out that Muslims had unfairly come under fire after the attack, thanks to religious bigotry. But conservatives twisted her words — as they repeatedly have.

“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something.’ Unbelievable,” Crenshaw wrote, smearing the congresswoman.

Noting his disingenuous attack and the manner in which he dismissed 9/11 survivors, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) called out Crenshaw.

“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,” she wrote. “In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why don’t you go do something about that?”

I dislike hypocrites but our government is made of these cowards…..

The GOP has tried to use the attacks on 9/11 as political props……and their actions show they could care less….all talk and no action….the credo of the American politician.

As despicable as I find this “person”….there is someone who is more despicable…..a person that promises support then renigs…..

In the wake of the controversy involving President Donald Trump sharing an edited video disparaging a Muslim lawmaker’s remarks about the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, it’s important to note that there’s still no indication that Trump himself fulfilled promises to donate to charities aimed at helping rescue workers who responded to those attacks

Less than a month after the attacks occurred, Trump appeared on “The Howard Stern Show” and made a promise to donate $10,000 to the Twin Towers Fund. Yet if Trump did give, there’s no record to indicate that he has done so, leading many to conclude that the promise has yet to be fulfilled nearly 18 years after the attacks.

Yet another Repub that is in a class of cowards that the country can do without….and hopefully we will.
