Ocasio-Cortez DEFENDS Anti-American Comment

If she and her freshman colleagues are a representation of the future of the Democratic party, America is doomed.

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) rushed to the defense on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Friday, suggesting that President Donald Trump calling out Omar represented “dangerous incitement.”

“Members of Congress have a duty to respond to the President’s explicit attack [email protected]’s life is in danger,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, dangerous targeting of a member of Congress. We must speak out.”

Ocasio-Cortez added: “‘First they came…'”

The quote, “First they came…” comes from a quote of prominent Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller, who described how people’s inaction toward Adolf Hitler led to the Holocaust. The famous quote is featured at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, which Ocasio-Cortez included a picture of in her tweet.

Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet came in response to Trump tweeting out a video on Friday afternoon that showed Omar describing the 9/11 terror attacks as “some people did something,” and also included the tragic images from the attacks of that day.

“WE WILL NEVER FORGET!” Trump tweeted with the video.

Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet elicited a strong reaction online from many across the political spectrum.

Imam Mohamad Tawhidi tweeted: “Here are the two facts that you missed: 1. The President expressing himself saying that he will ‘never forget’ the victims of 9/11 is not an ‘attack’, it’s exactly what’s expected from him. 2. Her life is not in danger. In fact, her association with CAIR puts the U.S in danger.”

David Harsanyi tweeted: “This is just a shameful attempt to chill speech. It belittles both the real victims of 9/11 and the Holocaust.”

Jim Hanson tweeted: “He called her out for her atrocious 9/11 comment Is she somehow immune from criticism? How many massively more inflammatory things have you & your crew said about @realDonaldTrump ? And a Holocaust reference puts you in the same (low) class as #IlhanOmar”

Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro tweeted: “That many in the media will parrot this ‘speech is violence’ codswallop is a demonstration how little they care about protecting speech when the speech is criticism of the Left. And there’s something deeply disturbing about AOC making Holocaust references to defend an open and unrepentant anti-Semite who is merely being criticized”

Popular conservative Twitter account AG Conservative tweeted: “Unbelievable. She is comparing Trump posting a video quoting Omar’s own words to the Holocaust. Despicable and incredibly offensive, especially to those of us whose families were actually impacted by those words.”

  1. The more we hear from AOc the less we like her. She is just too much of a Liberal Socialists. I don’t think you represent your State Very Well. Certainly can’t vote for someone like her. She can’t seem to remember what History has Shown Us.

  2. So what does she think she should have???…an OPEN BOOK to lie and curse the United States, and we pay her to do it???…and the right to go unchallenged?
    Sad.
    She best tone it down…their are idiots out there looking for a “verbal” target who have little patience with our “free speech society”…let her embarrass herself…and she still deserves protection.

    1. @ Holly 94
      Trump is the one with an “open book” to lie his ass off.
      From fact checking, Ocasio-Cortez is right on target. She has miss spoke 3 or 4 times, but she does not lie.

      1. If you like her go live in country where you can marry your brother and see how you like the socialist country. It is rude of her to say nasty stuff, about our beautiful country. TRUMP IN 2020. Your about stupid.

  3. Why do they deserve our protection.
    Maybe if they wanted to be part of our great country but they just degrade and seem to believe that 9/11 was a good and just thing. So let them protect themselves and or leave our country. There is no reason why that our police and military should give them any protection at all., they don’t respect them or give a damn about anybody but themselves.
    Goodbye.don’t let the door hit you where you sit.

  4. I wish that both of these assholes could be fired from Congress. There’s gotta be a way to throw their asses out. Wish Omar would get thrown out of the country for suspected terrorism

  5. Someone must take alook at this muslum woman congress person about her connection’s and funding with a couple groups that have and conspiering with known terrorist groups, in secret no reporters no news outlets even cnn, or msnbc. now if that doesn’t come under a doj look see i dont know what would..

  6. So aoc defends anti american ism , and she says she was born in america in the bronks , little does she know or doesnt know she is american and got elected to congress ,how tht happened its anyones guess. but if she defends anti americanism, i have one question, what does she call herself if not american. if anything she was a product of a country that lost ww11.

  7. We will never forget. Those mudlams along with that horse face Cortez, Pellosi, Schiff and a bunch more radical left wing, Godless, perverted, socialist p.o.s. need to pack up their crap and leave our Great Country.
    God bless America and President Trump!

  8. If you can dish it out, you should be able to take it, Omar. First of all, you come to this country, a country that takes you in, makes you and your family citizens. You then become a Congressperson and proceed to denigrate the country that you have sworn allegiance to? If you don’t want to assimilate to the US, go back to Somalia, where you came from or some other country that will accept you. All new persons elected to Congress should be forced to read the US Constitution and be forced to answer questions afterwards to see if they truly understand the difference between a “democracy” and a “republic”. We are not a democracy! We are a republic because we are represented by a constitution to protect the individual’s rights against the desires of the majority. Thankfully, we are NOT a democracy or else the desires of those who are not part of the majority would never be heard because only the majority rules in a democracy. That is not fair representation.
    Our forefathers were so ahead of their times in constructing a document like the Constitution with its checks and balances so that no single area of government could take ultimate control over the others. It’s funny how people from other countries struggle, sneak and do all kinds of illegal things to come to the US, but no one tries to leave the US for those countries. Why? Because they can’t get away with the freedoms they have here in the US., even with the Socialist-Democratic (progressive) party we see replacing the Democratic party of the past. So this means Omar and the other new Congress persons can speak their mind, but they must be willing to also take any and all backlash that they receive in return! What’s most shameful is the parties should, but won’t (thanks to Pelosi) work together for the good of the people who they represent! Pres Trump was the people’s choice via the Electoral College and the Dems refuse to accept this, going so far as to promote a coup to oust him. Shameful, disgusting behavior.

  9. I have a hunch there are many Freshmen congress person who will end up one term wonders. AOC, Omar and Tliab are just three who may never see a second term. With the amount of hate, divisiveness and anti- Americanism being spewed by the Dimwit party, we needn’t worry too much about them retain a House majority after this term.

  10. disgusting………so what are we who lost family members in both the holocost & 9-11 are supposed to just “suck-it-up” like it never happened….never going to happen we will always remeber and we will never ever forget

  11. Hey Cortez. I know we could raise the money to ship you to Venezuela. This is America. If you don’t love it, leave it.

    1. @ Estell,
      You are the one needs to be shipped to Russia, but they would not let some one as loonie as you into their country.

  12. Grover Who? You are one dumb ass, smart mouthed, arrogant, and uninformed! If America doesn’t appeal to you why don’t you try Living in China, North Korea, Russia, Columbia….. and be sure and flap your pie hole so you’ll get all the govt attention you deserve!

  13. Every time I read an asinine comment from AOC (or any Democrat). Stalin’s remark comes to mind. “People get the government they deserve.”

  14. the two of them are traders to the United States and should be fired from there jobs. then send them both to Syberia.

  15. I am so tired of these three liberal anti-American stooges. Maybe if we would just ignore these subversives they may just go away. They want the notoriety.
