Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s Response to Sri Lanka Bombings Lambasted by Press

AOC is being accused of selective outrage by some rather prominent political personalities.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Nary a day goes by in which freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez finds herself on the outside of the news cycle looking in.

Make no mistake about it, this is certainly purposeful, especially after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lamented that a “glass of water with a ‘D'” could have won her district back in 2018.

But that’s not to say that AOC is untalented, specifically in the realm of keeping herself in the crosshairs of the media.  The old adage about “no bad press” is undoubtedly one of the progressive politician’s most treasured creeds.

That is why her silence on the Sri Lanka terror attacks of Easter Sunday is remarkable.

The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attack, which left 359 people dead, and shared images purporting to show the seven bombers who blew themselves up at three churches and three hotels on Sunday. The government also confirmed that the attacks came from Islamic fundamentalists.

Yet Ocasio-Cortez, who has previously been quick to comment on other terror attacks such as the Christchurch mosque shootings in March, hasn’t yet said anything regarding the tragedy in Sri Lanka — which took the lives of several American citizens.

One of those who took to Twitter to call out AOC’s lack of response was television entertainer Piers Morgan:

Ocasio-Cortez has been drawing criticism from the republican well for some time, but to see Morgan lambasting the democratic diva is simply more proof of the left’s ongoing civil war, as well as AOC’s selective outrage.

Trump to ‘Lightweight’ Reporter: ‘Don’t Ever Talk to the President That Way!’ — VIDEO

Tell ’em, Donald!

Donald Trump made all the moves necessary in his first term to earn another four years in the White House. Before the pandemic, the economy was soaring, unemployment hit record lows, and peace deals were made all over the globe. But the mainstream media didn’t care. It didn’t matter to them that he accomplished more in four years than most presidents could’ve dreamed in two terms. They are as disrespectful as they are ruthless. On Thanksgiving Day, POTUS had to tell off one of the far-left hacks. He said, “The whole election was a fraud. They have Biden beating Obama in areas that matter in terms of the election in swing states. And yet he’s losing to Obama all over the place. And yet he’s beating Obama inplaces that mattered in terms of the election. Look, between you people… Look, don’t talk to me that way, you’re just a lightweight. Don’t talk to me that way. I’m the President of the United States. Don’t ever talk to the President that way. OK I’m going to go with another question… Massive fraud has been found. We’re like a third world country. We’re using computers that can be hacked. How many glitches did they find. Oh, a glitch. Oh, gee we had a glitch. 5,000 votes. In all cases the votes switched to Joe Biden.” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=19&v=I34X2PQKAA8&feature=emb_title Under Biden, America would never come first.

Multiple NFL Players Take A Knee for the National Anthem On Thanksgiving Day

Enough is enough!

The fact that sports commissioners are allowing players to turn games into messages for social justice shows exactly who is in charge – and it’s not the adults. Taking a knee during the national anthem should never be allowed, nor respected. From New York Post: “No thanks!” the president wrote on Twitter Wednesday. Trump fired off the two-word response after Detroit Lions’ quarterback Matthew Stafford and Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson took a knee before the teams’ annual Thanksgiving game at Ford Field in downtown Detroit. The players were protesting against police brutality and racism in the U.S. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1332055759551680523 Even though these NBA players stood for a moment of silence to commemorate the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, they still knelt once the Star Spangled Banner began playing. Pathetic. Enough is enough!
