    Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continued to go to bat for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-NY) on Thursday after Omar trivialized the 9/11 terrorist attacks as "some people did something," claiming that she and Omar were both victims of the political Right.

    Ocasio-Cortez, who defended Omar by mocking war hero Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) on Twitter, also falsely claimed that criticism of her and Omar "is an incitement of violence against progressive women of color."

    "The levels to which Republican and conservative groups, whether they are official party apparatuses, sending out emails, calling me and others domestic terrorists, or whether it’s Ruppert Murdoch and the New York Post printing on the front page to circulate all around New York City an image that is incredibly upsetting and triggering for New Yorkers that were actually there and were actually in the radius that woke up one morning or were in their schools and didn’t know if they were going to see their parents at the end of the day, to elicit such an image for such a transparently and politically motivated attack on Ilhan," Ocasio-Cortez rambled.

    "We are getting to the level where this is an incitement of violence against progressive women of color and if they can’t figure out how to get it back to policy, we need to call it out for what it is because this is not normal," Ocasio-Cortez concluded. "This is not a normal level of political debate or rhetoric, as wild as it can get sometimes, this is something beyond what is normal."

    We could not criticize Obama because he was black, and now this. I give up!

    It is one of their favorite tactics, and loaded with hypocrisy—playing the race card, when they are as racist as anyone can be. They are all too ready to castigate Candace Owens, Carol Swain, or any other minority who dares challenge their progressivity. Then it’s not merely back of the bus but under the bus.

    They are trying to control the conversation and force surrender without a fight.

    Don’t bother following their hypocritical PC rules, or even acknowledging them, except to shove them back down their hypocritical throats. For example, Trump offering to bless their precious little sanctuary cities with an unlimited supply of their cherished illegals. Priceless.:D

    :Rolleyes Whenever someone of her caliber speaks of normal, you know the entire expression is one long punchline. And leaving off the “of normal” makes the statement just as true.:Wink

    Omar was married to her brother so we know that she is normal.

    These two are poster people for victimhood. They are always the victim. They are misquoted, misunderstood, taken out of context, etc. Typical Democrat reaction.

    They call it being crybullies - when they pick a fight to where they get a reaction and then they blame it all on that person. These two, and that Pali woman from MI, are going to continue to do these kind of things. That dimwit Omar thinks CAIR was formed after 9-11, the Pali doesn't think twice before swearing in front of her own preteen, and AOC is as clueless as a preteen herself.
