AOC Blames Trump For Public Outrage Against Ilhan Omar

.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems to think the public is outraged at the racist actions and comments of Rep. Illhan Omar because Trump said so? She was quick to rush and defend Omar suggesting that President Donald Trump calling out Omar for her antisemitism represented “dangerous incitement.”

She really has no idea how the world works. The American patriots are outraged at Omar’s bigotry and the left’s acceptance of it. President Trump has little, if anything at all, to do with it. The Republican party has long stood against racism, despite how hard Democrats have tried to warp that fact.

“Members of Congress have a duty to respond to the President’s explicit attack today.@IlhanMN’s life is in danger,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, dangerous targeting of a member of Congress. We must speak out.”

Ocasio-Cortez added: “‘First they came…’”

The quote, “First they came…” comes from a quote of prominent Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller, who described how people’s inaction toward Adolf Hitler led to the Holocaust. The famous quote is featured at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, which Ocasio-Cortez included a picture of in her tweet.

“First they came…”

The Daily Wire pointed out that Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet came in response to Trump tweeting out a video on Friday afternoon that showed Omar describing the 9/11 terror attacks as “some people did something,” and also included the tragic images from the attacks of that day.

“WE WILL NEVER FORGET!” Trump tweeted with the video:

 

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

WE WILL NEVER FORGET!

Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet elicited a strong reaction online from many across the political spectrum.

Peace advocate Imam Mohamad Tawhidi tweeted: “Here are the two facts that you missed: 1. The President expressing himself saying that he will ‘never forget’ the victims of 9/11 is not an ‘attack’, it’s exactly what’s expected from him. 2. Her life is not in danger. In fact, her association with CAIR puts the U.S in danger.”
