Political analysts labeled Ocasio-Cortez’s win as the biggest upset since House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a Republican, lost in 2014 to a little-known right-wing professor, Dave Brat. Ocasio-Cortez’s win also put Israel in the spotlight as she has been a harsh critic of the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians and is seen as the embodiment of the Democrat shifting away from Israel.
In an appearance on PBS’s Firing Line Friday she characterized the ongoing Israeli–Palestinian conflict as an “occupation” before ultimately conceding that she was not entirely familiar with the geopolitical particulars.
“I also think that what people are starting to see, at least in the occupation of Palestine, is just an increasing crisis of humanitarian condition and that to me is just where I tend to come from on this issue,” Ocasio Cortez said when pressed to expand on her previous criticisms of Israel.
Today she came up with another stupid attack this time on ICE!
I believe the moral character of the United States is at stake. So for me, it wasn’t a question of whether I should go down [to the border]. We have to have a rapid response. And I think every day that we go on — especially a day when something that heinous happens — we have to occupy all of it. We need to occupy every airport, we need to occupy every border, we need to occupy every ICE office until those kids are back with their parents, period.

NEVER back down an inch from a leftist, they deserve NO respect. Their ideas are all based on follow & obey instead of logic math and rational thought.
Americans of every skin color, religion, and belief are waking up to the fact that the Democratic Party has been manipulating their emotions of fear and hatred in order to keep them from seeing reality.
Fear of deportation, of slavery of NAZI concentration camps; anything to wind up their emotions. But their rhetoric has been over-the-top and is constantly being proven to be lies, these are the reasons why the Democrats are beginning to #walkaway
