AOC GOES OFF: Ocasio-Cortez Accuses GOP of ‘Co-Opting Faith’ to ‘Advance Bigotry and Barbarism’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.13.20

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped her Republican colleagues on social media Monday night; accusing GOP lawmakers of “co-opting faith” to “advance bigotry and barbarism.”

“Sick and tired of Republicans who co-opt faith as an excuse to advance bigotry and barbarism. Fact is, if today Christ himself came to the floor of Congress and repeated his teachings, many would malign him as a radical and eject him from the chamber,” posted Ocasio-Cortez.

Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris addressed the Senate during the confirmation process of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court Monday; saying Republicans are “rushing and jamming” her nomination.

“The Constitution of the United States entrusts the Senate with the duty to carefully consider nominations to the Supreme Court… Yet the majority is rushing this process and jamming President Trump’s nominee through the Senate,” said Harris.

“People are actually voting. Millions more will vote while this illegitimate process is underway,” she added. “A majority of elections want whoever wins this election to fill this seat… They’re deliberately defying the will of the people.”

SQUAD SPEAKS: Omar Says Israel Implementing Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban,’ Slams ‘Brutal Occupation’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.15.19

Embattled Representative Ilhan Omar publicly reacted to Israel’s decision to deny her entrance into the country Thursday; calling the move “an affront” and an “insult to democratic values.”

“It is an affront that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, under pressure from President Trump, would deny entry to representatives of the U.S. government,” Omar said in a statement. “Trump’s Muslim ban is what Israel is implementing, this time against two duly elected Members of Congress.”

“As a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, it is my job to conduct oversight of foreign aid from the United States of America and to legislate on human rights practices around the world. The irony of the ‘only democracy’ in the Middle East making such a decision is that it is both an insult to democratic values and a chilling response to a visit by government officials from an allied nation,” she added.

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez erupted on social media following the Israeli Prime Minister’s decision to block entry to Reps. Tlaib and Omar Thursday; suggesting Netanyahu’s decision was rooted in Islamophobia.

“[Members of Congress] are frequently asked to visit Israel to ‘see things for ourselves.’ But Netanyahu choosing to ban the only 2 Muslim women in Congress from entering tells the US that only *some* Americans are welcome to Israel, not all. Trump is exporting his bigotry &making matters worse,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denied access to the country for Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib Thursday; saying they routinely “deny Israel’s legitimacy” and call for a boycott against the Jewish State.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended Ilhan Omar’s vicious rant against US Special Envoy Elliott Abrams Wednesday; saying the Congresswoman’s outrageous accusations of ‘Venezuelan Genocide’ felt “like justice.”

“Ilhan Omar is a Somali refugee. She has felt the ravages of war. Watching her question Trump’s envoy to VZ, who pled guilty to several Iran-Contra crimes, feels like justice,” tweeted Cortez.

Omar erupted during Abram’s congressional testimony regarding Venezuela’s socialist regime this week; accusing the Trump official of endorsing war crimes and other atrocities.
