It’s about time Rep Alexandria Ocasio Cortez paid the price for her reckless and moronic comments.
AOC “reaped a whirlwind of criticism this past week when she attempted to explain her ‘present’ vote for a bill that would allot funds to Israel’s Iron Dome defense system,” reports Breitbart News.
Her first response after the vote was to claim she was a victim:
Yes, I wept. I wept at the complete lack of care for the human beings that are impacted by these decisions, I wept at an institution choosing a path of maximum volatility and minimum consideration for its own political convenience.
And I wept at the complete lack of regard I often feel our party has to its most vulnerable and endangered members and communities – because the death threats and dangerous vitriol we’d inevitably receive by rushing such a sensitive, charged, and under-considered vote weren’t worth delaying it for even a few hours to help us do the work necessary to open a conversation of understanding.
But her “look at how hard my life” statement didn’t keep her from harsh criticism. And it shouldn’t have.
“This BDS supporter, collaborator in the Squad’s obsessive slanders of Israel, and defender of her colleagues’ anti-semitism, is complaining about the “discourse” around Israel and declaring herself the victim (she’s *always* a victim!) of ‘hateful targeting,'” tweeted Noah Pollack.
“Are AOC’s sharp political instincts waning? Met Gala now this weird letter that postures one way while failing to explain why she didn’t vote against it,” said Miriam Elder.
