(JustPatriots.com)- Continuing her tradition of histrionics and inappropriate comparisons, during a speech on the House floor, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that the US treatment of illegal aliens on the Southern Border is the same as Israeli treatment of Palestinians.
“We have to have the courage to name our contributions and sometimes I can’t help but wonder if the reason we don’t do that, if we’re scared to stand up to the incarceration of children in Palestine is because maybe it’ll force us to confront the incarceration here at our border,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
It’s unclear what “incarceration” Ocasio-Cortez is referring to. But clarity has never been her strong suit.
The only way our Southern border could possibly be like what’s happening in Gaza is if these so-called “migrants” were firing rockets over the Rio Grande.
But it is quite a brazen thing to say, especially coming for someone who, in a July 2018 interview with PBS admitted that she was “not an expert on geopolitics.”

Clearly, three years later, she’s learned nothing.
“If by standing up to injustices there,” Ocasio-Cortez also said yesterday, “it will prompt us to stand up to the injustices here.”
It is doubtful that the “injustice” Ocasio-Cortez is referring to here is Hamas deliberately placing children in harm’s way so that Israeli missiles kill them in order to gain support from know-nothings in the West, like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Ocasio-Cortez, along with her fellow “Squad” members have effectively become the Hamas Caucus in the House of Representatives. They are either wittingly or unwittingly propagating Hamas propaganda from the floor of the US House of Representatives.
On Monday, Ilhan Omar tweeted “Israeli air strikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism. Palestinians deserve protection. Unlike Israel, missile defense programs, such as Iron Dome, don’t exist to protect Palestinian civilians. It’s unconscionable to not condemn these attacks on the week of Eid.”
Naturally, Omar fails to mention that the Israeli air strikes were prompted by rocket attacks launched by Hamas into Israel.
But all of the “Squad” fail to notice that Hamas is the aggressor in this situation – no doubt because doing so diminishes their ability to paint Israel and not Hamas as the terrorists.
This kind of incendiary rhetoric is more suited for an on-air personality from MSNBC than it is coming from a sitting member of the US House of Representatives.
