AOC pulls race card, again, when GOP Rep calls out Dem ‘squad of Ayatollah sympathizers’

After being confronted with criticism on Wednesday, socialist Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sought refuge in the only “safe space” known to her — namely, that “safe space” afforded to her courtesy the infamous, undying race card.

The drama began to unfold that afternoon when Ocasio-Cortez and her peers in the Democrat “squad” held a press conference during which they excoriated President Donald Trump for his highly successful, recent operations against Iran.

Washington Rep. Pramila Jayapal, an unhinged, far-left radical who once claimed the president seeks to “purify” America of all non-white people, used the occasion to specifically target the president’s elimination last week of top Iranian general and terrorist mastermind Qasem Soleimani.

“President Trump recklessly assassinated Qasem Soleimani,” she said, recklessly adopting the language of Iranian propagandists.

“He had no evidence of an imminent threat or attack. And we say that coming from a classified bearing where again, there was no raw evidence presented that there was an imminent threat.”

Watch, and take note of AOC, who stood immediately behind her:

 

Responding to the congresswoman’s propagandist words, Florida Rep. John Rutherford posted an unratioed tweet Wednesday afternoon accusing Jayapal and her peers, including AOC, of being “Ayatollah sympathizers.”

As of Friday morning, the tweet boasted 44,000 likes, 21,000 shares and only 15,000 comments, many of them supportive of him.

Look:

Now fast-forward to early Thursday afternoon, when Ocasio-Cortez chose to involve herself in the feud by trotting out the overplayed race card.

“I find it highly amusing that my coworkers angrily yell stuff like this and then clutch their pearls and cry when they are called out for their racism,” she tweeted to Rutherford.

As of Friday morning, her tweet boasted 91,000 likes, 13,000 shares, and around 6,700 comments.

Look:

Her tweet follows a pattern of her responding to any sort of criticism or challenge by either running away or citing racism, sexism or any other “ism.”

After a prominent conservative commentator challenged her to a debate two years ago, she cried sexism. And after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi began criticizing her and her peers’ questionable antics last year, she cried racism.

Instead of exuding power, respect, and self-confidence, she invariably winds up sounding like a child, and not just any child but the type who’d accuse cauliflower of being racist, as noted by the preteen actress known as “Mini AOC.”

Watch:

While the congresswoman’s rhetoric may sound good to her base and even rile them up, it’s irresponsible. People have a right to posit criticisms, be they valid or invalid, without being accused of harboring one of the most disgusting belief systems in human history, i.e., the innate hatred of certain people because of their skin color.

Plus, there were other arguments, however dubious, she could have made in defense of Jayapal’s assertion. She could have even tried citing the dictionary definition of the term “assassination.” But she didn’t. Instead, she resorted to the same bad faith shtick and gimmick that’s defined her brief but tumultuous career in Congress.
