Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s constant need to pick fights is about to catch up with her.
The New York Congresswoman targeted Donald Trump over his plans to put a stop to the illegal immigration crisis at the Southern border.
But Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez instantly regretted telling this giant lie about President Trump.
Social media is Ocasio-Cortez’s preferred “weapon of choice” in her political battles.
Ocasio-Cortez’s massive following gives her platform rivaled by few in Washington.
However, the downsides of social media are you operate without a net and without a filter.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just learned that lesson the hard way,
During a rant she live-streamed on her Instagram account, Ocasio-Cortez falsely accused President Trump of operating “concentration camps” along the Southern border to detain illegal aliens.
“That is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps,” Ocasio-Cortez ranted. “The fact that concentrations camps are now an institutionalized practice in the Home of the Free is extraordinarily disturbing, and we need to do something about it.”
Ocasio-Cortez then smeared President Trump with the charge of being a “fascist” and sought to explain herself.
“I don’t use those words lightly,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “I don’t use those words to just throw bombs. I use that word because that is what an administration that creates concentration camps is. A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist, and it’s very difficult to say that.”
“The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing, and we need to do something about it,” Ocasio-Cortez concluded.
These are all lies.
And it is an insult to those who survived the horrors of Nazi Germany or lost loved ones to the unspeakable acts of barbarism in the Holocaust to compare any action taken by President Trump to Adolph Hitler murdering six million Jews.
If Ocasio-Cortez were a member of the GOP, the fake news media would hound every elected Republican in Washington to denounce her and demand her resignation from Congress.
But since Ocasio-Cortez is a Democrat, the so-called “mainstream” media will try to sweep this under the rug.
However, there is no hiding the pro-open borders extremism Ocasio-Cortez supports.
And that could come back to haunt the Democrats in the 2020 election.
