AOC viciously hits back at Steve King as ‘too racist even for GOP,’ declines invitation to tour Auschwitz

Taking her ignorance to new depths, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., doubled down on her insulting accusation that the U.S. is operating concentration camps on the southern border, which would be the first concentration camps in history where the inhabitants climb the walls to enter.

The 29-year-old socialist and former bartender did so in going after Reps. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and Steve King, R-Iowa.

Cheney was one of the first to hit back at Ocasio-Cortez for her inane assertion, and King’s sin was to encourage the Democrat to accept an offer from Jonny Daniels, the founder of From the Depths, a Holocaust commemoration group, to tour Auschwitz — Daniels is a 93-year-old survivor of the Nazi death camp.

“Congresswoman, the comparison you made recently to the migrant detainment camps on the southern United States border to the German Nazi Concentration Camps, brought a great deal of backlash, we firmly believe that this was not your intention, this was not done out of spite or ill faith, rather a misguided comment, due to a lack of proper education on the Holocaust, a significant issue of our generation,” Daniels wrote in his letter to Ocasio-Cortez.

Not only did the Bronx freshman hit back at King, she exposed just how ugly her inner being can be.

Repeating her dishonest narrative about how illegal immigrant children are being treated on the border, Ocasio-Cortez pivoted away from the invitation to attack King over the fall out from the media twisting remarks he made in reference to Western civilization into a racist defense of white supremacy.

(GOP leaders, who have a rich history of disliking King for his outspokenness, succumbed to the media spin.)

Ocasio-Cortez said in a tweet: “Mr. King, the Republican Party literally stripped you of your Congressional committee assignments because you were too racist even for them. My Jewish constituents have made clear to me that they proudly stand w/ caged children who are starved, denied sleep & sanitation.”

That such reckless accusations against Border Patrol are made by a sitting member of Congress would be an outrage in a sane world, but we apparently left that world in the last decade or so.

The high school-like response from Ocasio-Cortez was predictable, but she didn’t stop there.

In a follow up tweet, the socialist lawmaker tagged Cheney in a despicable comment about coming to “collect your colleague,” before making what appeared to be a threat.

“Hey @Liz_Cheney, you’re the GOP Conference Chair – perhaps you should come collect your colleague before more members of your caucus start saying the quiet parts loud,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

As for her irresponsible accusations about concentration camps, Ocasio-Cortez has said that she will “never apologize for calling these camps what they are.”

Then again, she also believes that facts come second to being “morally right.”

This being the problem with the far-left, who are so entrenched in their progressive dogma that they’re immune from shame when twisting reality, no matter how dumb they sound in the process — with a complicit media in their corner, they have reason for such audacity.

In declining King’s overture, after accusing him of meeting with “fringe Austrian neo-Nazi groups,” Ocasio-Cortez exposed another progressive trait, projecting your actions on your opponent.

“So I’m going to have to decline your invite,” she tweeted. “But thank you for revealing to all how transparently the far-right manipulates these moments for political gain.”

Terms like “far right” and “neo-Nazi” are bandied about rather cheaply in today’s Fake News media age.

King meetings with Freedom Party members, identified in the media as a far-right political party, was separate from his visit to Auschwitz and did not involve From the Depths.

In noting that the group’s leaders are participating in the Austrian government, King said that they “completely reject any kind of Nazi ideology or philosophy,” according to the Washington Post.

“That’s not a fringe group,” King told the newspaper.
