Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rushed to the defense of embattled Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar after she tweeted an anti-Semitic remark.

Correction: after she tweeted another anti-Semitic remark.

Ocasio-Cortez’s defense of Omar came after Omar’s latest anti-Semitic incident over the weekend when Omar “displayed her blatant anti-Semitism by tweeting that GOP support for Israel was ‘all about the Benjamins,’ and followed by accusing AIPAC of paying American politicians to support Israel,” The Daily Wire reported.

Ocasio-Cortez, who has a long history of walking lockstep with anti-Semites, waited a couple of days to weigh in on Omar’s anti-Semitic comments, which drew widespread condemnation from both sides of the aisle.

Ocasio-Cortez responded by falsely suggesting that President Donald Trump was the one who has a problem with anti-Semitism.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted:

Unlike this President, Rep. @IlhanMN demonstrated a capacity to acknowledge pain & apologize, use the opportunity to learn abt history of antisemitism,+grow from it while clarifying her stance.

I’m also inspired by Jewish leadership who brought her in, not push her out, to heal.

AOC is “proud” of Omar:

Lots of people here proclaiming to be “woke” trying to police communities on what they are/aren’t allowed to be upset by.

I’m proud @IlhanMN raised the issue of lobbyist 💰 in politics & equally proud of her sensitivity to communities. Both are possible.

Omar showed no shame after responding to a series of tweets from journalist Glenn Greenwald.

LOOK:

Enter Omar with the anti-Semitic stereotype:

If not immediately obvious, here’s the problem with her tweet:

“It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” Rep. Omar said, a reference to Jewish people and money. A typical antisemitic stereotype.

Omar then retweeted a “hook-nosed” tweet:

Reactions:

Politicians on both sides of the aisle are often caught spouting falsehoods.

Ocasio-Cortez is by far and away one of the worst and it’s kind of not even close.

The latest example…

From Daily Wire:

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) lied about her “Green New Deal” on Thursday, saying that it is not a “massive government takeover” hours after admitting the exact opposite.

AOC: “One way that the Right does try to mischaracterize what we’re doing as though it’s like some kind of massive government takeover. Uh, obviously what we’re trying to do is, well obviously it’s not that because what we’re trying to do is release the investments from the federal government to mobilize those resources across the country.

The funny thing is that Ocasio-Cortez said the exact opposite earlier in the day.

Host Steve Inskeep: “As you know, congresswoman, one reason that people who are politically conservative are skeptical of efforts to combat climate change is that it sounds to them like it requires massive government intervention which they just don’t like. Are you prepared to put on the table that yes, they’re actually right, what this requires is massive government intervention?

AOC: “It does. It does. Yeah, I have no problem saying that.

WATCH:

So, which is it, Alexandria?

Save conservative media!

President Joe Biden. Vice President Kamala Harris. Both titles have a certain ugliness when put in front of those two names. My goodness, America. What have we done? From The Daily Wire: Future White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain released a memo Saturday detailing President-elect Joe Biden’s plans to make good on his campaign promises in the first few hours of his presidency. The memo, sent to incoming senior staff and obtained by The New York Times, states that Biden will address the “four crises” facing the nation: Covid-19, the economy, the climate and racial inequity. The actions expand on the Biden campaign’s message of “build back better” and claim to “reverse the gravest damages of the Trump administration” while moving the country forward. CONTINUED: On Inauguration Day, Biden will sign twelve executive orders that directly respond to these four “crises,” with additional directives spread out over a ten-day period. Included in this group are plans to re-join the Paris Climate Agreement, reverse the so-called “Muslim Ban” restricting travel from certain countries, extend the pause on student loan payments and continue current restrictions on foreclosures and evictions. The first day of Biden’s presidency will also mark the beginning of the “100 Day Masking Challenge,” with a mask mandate taking effect for people traveling between states and visiting federal property.

McConnell to Trump: If You Pardon Julian Assange, We’re ‘More Likely to Convict You’ [Report]

He said what!?

As soon as it was learned that President Trump had no chance of being re-elected, Mitch McConnell started bashing POTUS pretty hard. Heck, the Kentucky Republican even blamed Trump for the Capitol riot. But if what Tucker Carlson is saying is true, it goes to show that the Senate Majority Leader was never really in Trump’s corner to begin with. WATCH: https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1351704268563075072?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351707348373557253%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es2_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2021%2F01%2Fmitch-mcconnell-reportedly-threatened-president-trump-pardon-julian-assange-much-likely-convict-impeachment-trial-video%2F https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1351707348373557253 https://twitter.com/adamgoldmanNYT/status/1351721466803445762?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351721466803445762%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2021%2F01%2Fmitch-mcconnell-reportedly-threatened-president-trump-pardon-julian-assange-much-likely-convict-impeachment-trial-video%2F Despite everything POTUS accomplished in just four years, Trump still gets little to no respect from members of his own party. From Fox News: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supports Democrats’ move to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Trump and is “done” and “furious” with him, sources familiar told Fox News. It is unclear how McConnell would vote in an impeachment trial, should House Democrats vote to impeach Trump. It is not clear at this point whether McConnell would vote to convict. CONTINUED: One source told Fox News that McConnell has not made up his mind about what to do about impeachment, and does not see this as a partisan exercise like the previous impeachment effort against Trump. Another source told Fox News that McConnell told associates that impeachment will help rid the Republican Party of Trump and his movement. Sounds like things are shaking up to be a little crazy before Trump leaves office. The guy can’t have a moment of peace. History will remember everything the Trump Administration accomplished in a positive light, though. Disagree?
