Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) that he wasn't supportive enough of the troops.

Ocasio-Cortez stuck her foot in her mouth defending virulent anti-Semite Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar who Crenshaw criticized for her outrageous comment about the terror attacks on 9/11.

Kilmeade reacted to the controversy that followed by saying he had not meant to question whether Rep. Omar was an American.

She then went on to link Mr. Crenshaw with domestic terrorists and said he should "go" spend his energy there.

"From fundraising emails labeling @AOC a domestic terrorist to the constant questioning of @IlhanMN's loyalty to and love of country, the right-wing is actively inciting violence against young progressive women of color in Congress", organizers with the Women's March posted on Twitter. "Why don't you go do something about that?" she tweeted at Crenshaw.

"This puts me in danger every time", Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted after the email spread on social media.

"CAIR was founded after 9/11, because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties", Omar said. My fellow students often tell me that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a "role model" and that America should be more like socialist Europe.

Ocasio-Cortez's office pointed McClatchy to a New York Daily News interview with a retired New York firefighter who survived 9/11 and told the newspaper that Crenshaw had snubbed him as he lobbied for renewing the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.

Crenshaw served five deployments overseas - while on his third combat tour, he was hit by an IED blast during a mission in Afghanistan that destroyed his right eye and badly injured his left eye. He is now serving as the representative for Texas's 2nd congressional district.

The 29-year-old congresswoman from NY has reportedly been invited to talk at this year's event, which returns in June after a break in 2018.

But in a letter Friday to the New York Democrat, Barr said she must first offer a mea culpa to "our colleague and patriot to our country".
