Usually, the ‘Squad’ does a slightly better job of concealing their anti-Semitism. Slightly. But this was pretty blatant.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s hatred for Israel was on full display during an appearance on the hip-hop program “Ebro in the Morning” with Ebro Darden.
Darden dishes out a variety of ill-informed views to the New York socialist who, rather than denouncing them, agrees wholeheartedly and then cranks it up a notch.
Among those views are that the governments of Israel and the United States are “corrupt” and on par with Russia and Saudi Arabia, that Israel is “criminal” in its treatment of Palestinians, and that the Palestinian people “have no choice but to riot” against Israel.
“What’s going on with Israel and Palestine, while it’s very, very, deep, it is very, very, criminal, and it is very, very unjust,” Darden stated.
“Absolutely,” Ocasio-Cortez responded adding that, “I think, too, where we’re at as a country when it comes to Israel-Palestine is very much a generational issue.”
No, it’s an educational issue. Mainly, you need to be educated.
All right, listened to the full interview, and yeah it’s pretty bad. Hard to overstate just how unimpressive AOC is when answering questions instead of dunking on reporters, and her understanding of even the basics of the Israel issue is nil. Good grief. https://t.co/Js6WIA8c0h

“Jewish people have been persecuted throughout all of human history, but I don’t think that by marginalizing Palestinians, you create safety,” she says, equating the Holocaust to poor infrastructure in Gaza.
“I believe that injustice is a threat to the safety of all people, because once you have a group that is marginalized and marginalized and marginalized — once someone doesn’t have access to clean water, they have no choice but to riot, right? And it doesn’t have to be that way.”
Wow. She’s encouraging bloodshed and violence against one of America’s closest allies. This is pure insanity!
Israel Are Occupiers, Says AOC
Ocasio-Cortez has held the view for quite some time that Israel is ‘occupiers’ of Palestine.
“I also think what people are starting to see, at least in the occupation of Palestine, is just an increasing crisis of humanitarian conditions,” she said during an interview on PBS’ ‘The Firing Line.’ “And that to me is just where I tend to come from on this issue.”
AOC also admitted she’s “not the expert on geo-politics on this issue,” in an embarrassing exchange on the topic.
Ocasio-Cortez recently signed onto a resolution supporting the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
Her colleagues in the ‘Squad’ voiced their support for BDS by comparing Israel to, among other things, Nazi Germany.

The ‘Squad’ – freshman Democrat congresswomen consisting of AOC, Ilhan Omar (MN), Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Ayanna Pressley (MA) – have marched in lockstep to an anti-Semitic, anti-American drumbeat since assuming office in January.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham lambasted the group during a recent interview.
“We all know that AOC and this crowd are a bunch of communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own country, they’re calling the guards along our border — the Border Patrol agents — concentration camp guards,” he railed.
“They are anti-Semitic, they are anti-American, we don’t need to know anything about them personally, talk about their policies,” Graham added.
Or, let them do their own talking. The very words that come out of their mouths prove it.
