Ocasio-Cortez Accuses Trump of Antisemitism


Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, who has allied herself with anti-Israel lawmakers Rashida Tlaib and Ilan Omar, accused President Trump Sunday of antisemitism.

Why? Because Trump called Rep. Adam Schiff, who is leading one of the impeachment inquires against the president, "shifty."

“Understand that Trump is engaged in deliberate, atrocious, targeted antisemitism towards Chairman Schiff. Then ask yourself why no one cares to denounce it – esp when his accusation of it towards others drove full news cycles earlier this year,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Saturday, retweeting an article in The Intercept suggesting that Trump’s attacks against Schiff come from the neo-Nazi playbook.

Oddly, even her accusation of antisemitism has a whiff of antisemitism. Who exactly is she blaming for ignoring anti-Jewish bias?

In the past, Ocasio-Cortez has called Israel "criminal" and praised Rep. Omar, who has made blatantly antisemitic statements.
