Ocasio-Cortez praised fellow Democrat Ilhan Omar for claiming Republicans’ support for Israel is bought by AIPAC.
So she’s proud of the anti-semite? Democrats must be delirious with joy. But Jewish voters, on the other hand, not so proud. I hope they keep their wallets closed tight.
Omar should resign like our Commander and Chief said!

I’m also inspired by Jewish leadership who brought her in, not push her out, to heal. https://t.co/ONRegDJK2S

Democrat New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez praised fellow Democrat, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, on Tuesday for claiming Republicans’ support for Israel is bought by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
“Unlike this President, Rep. [Omar] demonstrated a capacity to acknowledge pain & apologize, use the opportunity to learn [about] history of antisemitism [sic],+grow from it while clarifying her stance,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “I’m also inspired by Jewish leadership who brought her in, not push her out, to heal.”
Omar is facing massive backlash after she quote-tweeted a link to an article by Haaretz where House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy threatened punishment against Omar and Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, America’s first two Muslim congresswomen; both Omar and Tlaib have been embroiled in allegations of anti-Semitism.
Omar first commented on the tweet, saying “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” and after she was pressed to clarify who she was referring to, she tweeted “AIPAC!” More

Just when you thought AOC couldn’t go any lower. It’s becoming more and more apparent that this freshman class of women in our government has very little understanding of that which they are fighting for.
President Trump has it exactly right when he said that freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar’s apology for tweets is ‘lame’ and she should resign. We can count on Trump not giving her a free pass but the rest of the Congress not so much!
