What Ocasio-Cortez Said About U.S. Use Of Force Against 9/11 Perpetrators Is Appalling

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues on her downward spiral, as she seemingly tries to cement her reputation as being one of the worst politicians to grace the political landscape in years, this time saying something truly appalling about U.S. use of force against 9/11 perpetrators.

According to AOC, we shouldn’t have authorized use of force against these vile individuals.

Tell that to the 3,000 people who were murdered in cold blood by these sick and twisted animals.

Ocasio-Cortez’s comments came as she was defending Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-NY) most recent anti-Semitic remarks from over the weekend.

“It is disturbing that Rep. Omar continues to perpetuate hurtful anti-Semitic stereotypes that misrepresent our Jewish community. Additionally, questioning support for the U.S.-Israel relationship is unacceptable,” Democrat Rep. Juan Vargas (CA) tweeted. “Israel has and remains a stalwart ally of the United States because of our countries’ shared interests and values. I condemn her remarks and believe she should apologize for her offensive comments.”

Ocasio-Cortez responded in a dishonest manner, suggesting that Vargas was calling out Omar’s foreign policy stances, not her anti-Semitism.

“I‘m curious if Rep. Vargas will further explain his stance here that it’s unacceptable to even *question* US foreign policy,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Plenty of Dem members have asserted that discussion + debate on this issue is fair and merited. Is this stance a departure from that?”

Ocasio-Cortez continued with another tweet that contained some false information: “I remember a time when it was ‘unacceptable’ to question the Iraq War. All of Congress was wrong, including both GOP & Dem Party, and led my generation into a disastrous + wrong war that virtually all would come to regret, except for the one member who stood up: Barbara Lee.”

After being called out for the tweet’s inaccuracies, Ocasio-Cortez clarified that she meant the Afghanistan war, and added: “(But honestly we shouldn’t have been in either, and we should end the AUMF now while we’re at it)”

There have been a whole lot of clueless folks who have somehow managed to get themselves elected to Congress, but Ocasio-Cortez certainly has set a new bar for incompetence.

At first, it all seemed like an act, some sort of strategy to disarm people and make them think she was stupid and therefore not a political threat, thus allowing her to accomplish her agenda in Congress bit by bit.

Turns out it’s not an act. Heaven help us.
