Democrat congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dodged questions from activist Laura Loomer about the Women’s March’s ties to pro-Sharia, radical anti-Semitism. Ocasio-Cortez spoke at the New York City event on Jan. 19.
Ocasio-Cortez refused to disavow the hateful anti-Jewish rhetoric spewed by organizers of the Women’s March, including co-chair Tamika Mallory and Sharia proponent Linda Sarsour.
Loomer — who’s Jewish — approached Ocasio-Cortez and asked: “Why are you standing with people who openly support Hamas, a terrorist organization that kills Jewish people?”
Ocasio-Cortez ignored Loomer’s question and walked right past her.

Left-Wing Groups Disavowed Women’s March
The Democratic National Committee, its former president, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and other left-wing groups have disavowed the 2019 Women’s March amid because its organizers are blatantly anti-semitic.
In November 2018, attorney Theresa Shook — who founded the original women’s march — urged the group’s current leadership to resign over their anti-Semitic and anti-gay rhetoric:
“In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs.”
Women’s March co-president Tamika Mallory has praised Louis Farrakhan — the leader of the Nation of Islam — as the “greatest of all time,” and suggested that Israel has no right to exist.
To protest the group’s bigotry, activist Laura Loomer rushed the stage at the Women’s March in New York City and yelled: “The Women’s March hates Jews!” She was immediately thrown off stage.

Ocasio-Cortez Deflects Anti-Semitism Onto Trump
While she ignored Laura Loomer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez granted an interview to a left-wing media outlet.
When asked to disavow the Women’s March’s ties to anti-Semitism, Ocasio-Cortez tried to spin the question by suggesting that President Trump’s administration are the anti-Semites.
“I think that concerns of anti-Semitism with the current administration in the White House are absolutely valid,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “We need to make sure that we are protecting the Jewish community and all those that feel vulnerable in this moment.”

Irony: A Sharia-Backed Women’s Movement?
What’s laughable is the idea of a women’s movement being supported by pro-Sharia Islamists.
As for President Trump, keep in mind that his daughter Ivanka, his son-in-law Jared Kushner and their three children are Jewish.
Moreover, Trump has been embraced by Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and been hailed as one of Israel’s greatest allies.
“Donald Trump is the greatest President the Jews ever had in the White House.”
“I am a proud Jew and an immigrant. I support Trump.”
I am a proud Jew, and an immigrant. I support Trump. I support national sovereignty. I oppose the caravan. I oppose much of what George Soros does. I am critical of Jewish institutions whose work has drifted to the political left. All of these are legitimate views and remain so.

By the way, Israel urges the United States to Build That Wall.
“President Trump is right. I built a wall along Israel’s southern border. It stopped all illegal immigration. Great success.”

Sharia advocates promote forced child marriages, female genital mutilation, wife-beating, stoning, and throwing acid in women’s faces as punishment for disobeying their husbands.
Are these the appropriate leaders for a women’s movement?

Friendly reminder that Islam calls for the execution of homosexuals. It’s called The Death Fall for homosexuals and as you can see here, they’re throwing someone off a roof for being gay. pic.twitter.com/JgIfS7DWbR
