Friday evening, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hit her all time, unrecoverable new low. At 7:39 p.m., the first-term representative sent out a tweet, referring to President Donald J. Trump as Hitler, and calling a tweet by him earlier that day, an “explicit attack.”
Attached to Ocasio-Cortez’ tweet was a photograph of a wall at the National Holocaust Museum, with a quote by Martin Niemöller reading:
“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
Ocasio-Cortez’ alarmist tweet continued, “[Ilhan Omar’s] life is in danger. For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, dangerous targeting of a member of Congress.”
It can be inferred by this tirade only one thing: It is a blatant attack to discredit President Trump, who is not, and never has been a socialist, (as Hitler was). In fact, he has gone to great lengths to publicly decry socialism, most notably in his February State of the Union speech, saying “we will never be a socialist country.”
The horribly-planned, fear-mongering and quite uneducated tweet is a testament to the lows Democrats are willing to go to vilify this Administration and the Republican party. Ilahn Omar has disparaged Jews and the Israeli people as a whole on multiple occasions, referring to them as “Benjamins,” and saying “Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
The recent outrage by both Democrats, like Assistant Speaker of the House, Ben Ray Luján, and Republicans like Dan Crenshaw, came after Omar shrugged off 9/11 supporters at a CAIR (Center for American-Islamic Relations) event, where she referred to the terrorist rampage as “Some people did something.” CAIR is linked to the Palestinian terrorist group, Hamas.
President Trump merely responded, alongside a bipartisan plurality of the political establishment to condemn Omar’s tweets, with a video cut with images of the 9/11 attack and Omar’s dismissive comment.
