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.
Ryan Saavedra wrote on his Twitter profile:
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.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bashes Israel while admitting she is clueless about what is going on there. She simply toes the far-left, radical agenda. Elected Democrats are endorsing this when they endorse her. @Ocasio2018 pic.twitter.com/KjfYlMfsNx

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
