More Concerning anti-Israel Rhetoric from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Democratic-socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is no stranger to controversy, especially regarding her anti-Israel stances. She’s been criticized for supporting sanctions against Israel, aligning herself with Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, both of whom have been condemned for their anti-semantic comments, and most recently for her anti-Israel statements on the “Ebro in the Morning” talk show.

Donald Trump Accused of Racism for Attacking Congresswomen

US President Donald Trump faces a flurry of criticism following statements deemed racist about women politicians in the Democratic Party. Trump wrote in his Twitter account on Sunday:

“So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”

Progressives Battle Pelosi on Impeachment— But Who’s Winning?

You might have to go back to 1811 to find a freshman Member of Congress who has attracted as much national attention as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).  That was when Kentucky’s Henry Clay became Speaker of the House his first day on the job.  Since her shocking primary upset of Democratic Caucus Chair Joe Crowley nearly a year ago, the ex-Bronx bartender has attracted a Twitter following nearly rivaling that of her arch-nemesis from Queens.  AOC made her first appearance on a Sunday show since her election, This Week with George Stephanopoulos, and hinted at real “animus” between her fellow progressive backbenchers in Congress and the Democratic leadership, particularly on the issue of impeachment.
