The thing about AOC is that she sees any criticism of her inane rants as either being sexist or racist. She never even considers it is because of her extreme ignorance. Recently she went on one of her anti-Israel rants over the fact that they have the audacity to defend themselves against terrorist attacks at Summit Mount and 2,300 missiles fired into their cities.
Here is the offending headline:
“AOC calls Israel ‘apartheid state’ in Twitter outburst over Gaza attacks.”
Okay, read it and give it a little time to sink in, and now tell me which it is, racist or sexist. If you guess sexist, you are right. Why? I have no idea.
“So are the extensively researched, painstaking conclusions from the UN, Human Rights Watch, and B’Tselem (among the largest human rights orgs in the world and in Israel) considered ‘outbursts’ too?”
“Or is that just a descriptor MSN reserves for the women legislators quoting them?”
Is this woman insane? (Rhetorical question) In fact, her post is materially false. Hillel Neuer, who heads UN Watch, a watchdog group that focuses on the actions of the United Nations, corrected her. The line, the extensively researched, painstaking conclusions from the UN, Human Rights Watch is patently false. That report was written by 9/11 conspiracy theorist Richard Falk, who was denounced by his own UN chief Ban Ki-moon.
On top of that Falk wrote that under commission to Syria, Libya and 18 other Arab states and not for the UN.
Congresswoman, that U.N. report accusing Israel of 'apartheid' was authored by 9/11 conspiracy theorist Richard Falk, who was denounced by his own UN chief Ban Ki-moon and by the UK for antisemitism, and it was commissioned by Syria, Libya and 18 other Arab states. #factsmatter https://t.co/iwd4rMPESm

The congresswoman also retweeted a video in which MSNBC commentator Ali Velshi said, “The idea that it’s even remotely controversial to call what Israel has imposed on Palestinians a form of apartheid is laughable.”

Ocasio-Cortez also drew criticism from others regarding her “apartheid” stand.
“Every SINGLE elected Democrat in congress should have to answer if they agree with Ocasio-Cortez that Israel is an apartheid state,” “View” co-host Meghan McCain wrote Sunday.
McCain also retweeted a video clip from an Ocasio-Cortez appearance on the PBS program “Firing Line,” in which the congresswoman claimed she was “not the expert” on geopolitics in response to a question on what she had called “the occupation of Palestine.”
Fred Guttenberg, father of a student who was killed in the Parkland, Florida, massacre in 2018, also objected to the Democrat’s description of Israel.
“I have defended you often from Republican attacks,” Guttenberg wrote. “However, shame on you. You are wrong and either showing a lack of understanding or something more intentional veering on anti-Semitism.”
