It’s just a sensational headline. That’s all.
“Some people did something.” What kind of a monster would put those four words together in the same sentence?
Honestly, Dan is merely a truth-teller. He’s just pointing out facts. I mean, come on! tweeting this factual representation of Omar’s obvious implication, isn’t any attempt to influence white nationalists in the least bit. It’s not like the GOP is perpetually trying to fabricate narratives about Rep. Omar. Nope. Nevah!
Everyone knows, if Omar uses the inartful pronoun “Some people” with the nondescriptive “something,” she clearly means that she doesn’t consider the 9/11 attacks to be an act of terrorism. That goes without saying. Coming from the same Dan Crenshaw that continually touts self-accountability and anti-aggrievement politics, there must be something that set Dan off in Omar’s statement aside from what could be cast as childish, idiotic inferences.
I wonder if it was this that set him off?
Dan isn’t an Islamophobe or a xenophobe. That wouldn’t be a fair inference to make. He just happened to be an administrator of an 90k strong, islamophobe and conspiracy theory Facebook group for 4 months before the election. He withdrew his membership after his role was reported on, so what’s the problem. As Dan said himself,
“They contacted me once and said they’d sign me up as an admin, in case I ever wanted to post,” said Crenshaw, who removed himself from the group after Newsweek contacted him. “I quickly forgot about the page and never saw it again. How exactly is this news?”
It would be unfair to make any such connection. Just because he associated himself with that group, that doesn’t mean we should associate him with that group. Am I right?
Or, just because he implied to his followers that some state laws which allowed some undocumented immigrants to vote in rare state or local situations, meant that the Democrats wanted to flood the system to vote in federal elections, that doesn’t mean he is misrepresenting the truth to his followers, even if they pick up the clear implication. That’s their bad.
Dan is just a messenger.
There couldn’t be anything wrong with Dan pushing the fabricated “Omar is anti-Semitic” narrative. That won’t rile up the cult at all for sure.
Everyone knows Dan is speaking from a position of moral superiority. His viewpoints are unaffected from any outside influences. He is a champion of the right to free speech, except in the case to speak against the Israeli-Palestinian situation. That particular right should not exist according to Dan, unless we are 100% behind Israel. His trip to Israel, paid for by AIPAC, is a clear sign Dan is not being unduly influenced by anyone, even if they are the very group Ilhan Omar singled out as example of the influence of PACs on our political system, which is obviously an anti-Semitic stance for her to take. Everyone knows that.
So, like Dan- I’m just saying. I’m not implying anything, that’s entirely up to you. If something were to happen to Rep. Ilhan Omar, that totally wouldn’t have anything to do with Dan Crenshaw.
