Problematic: Ocasio-Cortez endorses candidate who believes Israel “has hypnotized the world”

Apologies in advance for yet another post on Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but she is the future of the Democratic Party according to its chair, Tom Perez, so she’s worth paying attention to.

Twitchy favorite Stephen Miller (aka @redsteeze) found one of Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsements to be possibly problematic, especially after she famously called Israel “the occupiers of Palestine” during that disastrous “Firing Line” interview.

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attacks Israel, calls them the occupiers of Palestine.

When pressed on what she meant she struggled to give an answer and then admitted she does not know what she is talking about. pic.twitter.com/e3Uq1eupD3

Hmm…

Is asking about endorsing candidates who call Israel evil catcalling or no @Ocasio2018? Please advise. https://t.co/CPMkDhOAGk

Here are the individual tweets in case they’re difficult to see there:

America, if you don’t already know about Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN), it’s time to know & support her.

She’s a modern day hero, champion for working families, & running for Congress in Minnesota.

Her election is THIS Tuesday.

Time to PUSH HER IN: https://t.co/hqg9rSzDK9 pic.twitter.com/jGs5fJ2yJQ

And step back a few years …

Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel. #Gaza #Palestine #Israel

— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) November 16, 2012

Well, asking Allah to awaken Americans to the evil doings of Israel didn’t stop Omar from becoming a Minnesota state representative, so she’s probably got a lock on a congressional seat as well. Say what you want about Trump, but the Democrat Party is off the rails.

She also appeared with Linda Sarsour in MI.

Really get tired of you people picking on Linda who through no fault of her own constantly finds herself surrounded by Jew hating religious extremists between magazine cover photo shoots.

But back to the original question: is posting these two tweets side-by-side catcalling? Or does it show a legitimate concern?

You obviously wouldn’t have done it if she weren’t so hot. Classical move by a sexist.

Stop with the unsolicited requests.

Can we ask Alexandria if she agrees with Ilan Omar labeling our long-standing ME ally the “apartheid Israeli regime” or is that catcalling? pic.twitter.com/HoI7hqN1j0

Cat calling if you expect an actual response

— killroy (@KillroyJon) August 11, 2018

Only if you call her out for thinking Israel is the one shaped like a boot.

— MethBurrito (@housOfpAin223) August 11, 2018

Quit catcalling her!

WHY ARE YOU CATCALLING ALEXANDRIA?!?!? pic.twitter.com/qavE2cqBE6

Why do you hate all women ?

— ❌Patrick J Russell Jr❌ (@patrusselljr) August 11, 2018

This is the same dude who crashed a woman-only screening of “Wonder Woman” — which shone a spotlight on his “rapist mentality.”

Watch it, you have multiple tweets about her so she may think you’re stalking her.
