When it comes to Israel-hating, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez takes a back seat to no one – not even the overtly anti-Semitic co-members of “The Squad”, ilhan omar and rashida tlaib.
How about these excerpts from Lukas Mikelionis’s article at foxnews.com:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez agreed that Israel is “criminal” in its treatment of Palestinians, whom she said have no other choice but to “riot” against the Jewish state.
The New York Democrat made her remarks during an appearance on the hip-hop program “Ebro in the Morning” with Ebro Darden, where they touched on a variety of issues concerning the freshman congresswoman.
“How do you have white supremacist Jews?” Ebro asked. “How do you have people like Stephen Miller? How do you have these individuals who are legit aligning with racism and white supremacy, but they’re Jewish? And it’s something that most people can’t wrap their brains around. But it’s a real thing.”
He added: “And what’s going on with Israel and Palestine, while it’s very, very, deep, it is very, very, criminal, and it is very, very unjust.”
But rather than push back against the claims, Ocasio-Cortez agreed with them, saying “Absolutely”
Thank you, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez. Very illuminating. I’m sure omar and tlaib joyously appreciate your brilliant analysis…along with hamas and hezbollah, of course.
I suppose I could show a little “rachmunis” (that’s yiddish for “compassion”) for Ocasio-Cortez, on the grounds that she is a 29 year old bartender with no experience and, apparently, little knowledge of the middle east.
But since she regularly makes a fool of herself on a variety of issues, not just this one, and seems to revel in doing so, I think I’ll pass on the rachmunis.
On the bright side, however, I bet she makes a helluva Cosmo.
