Following a tweet by incoming airhead congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that tried to compare the migrant caravans headed to the US border to families fleeing Rwanda, Syria and those fleeing the Holocaust in Germany, she took a lot of flak over the comparison, and rightly so. However, though people pointed out the obvious, Ocasio-Cortez ignored the correction and doubled down tweeting that she was on the "right side of history."
As the migrants attempted to invade the US border pushing women and children to the front as shields, Ocasio-Cortez was actually using them as a comparison to some of the greatest atrocities in history.
"Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime. It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany. It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.
It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria. And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America," she tweeted, attaching a NBC News story about Border Patrol agents firing tear gas to disperse the invaders from the border.

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said that she might actually want to educate herself at the Holocaust Museum.
"Might help her better understand the differences between the Holocaust and the caravan in Tijuana," he tweeted.
I recommend she take a tour of the Holocaust Museum in DC.

Additionally, Sebastian Gorka also reproved her.
“Your comparison @Ocasio2018 is disgraceful,” Gorka tweeted on Monday. “There is no genocide occurring South of our border targeting millions for death or shipping whole families to labor camps for extermination.”
He then added, “You truly are an insult to intelligent and empathic humans everywhere.”

Well, yeah. After all, who have we been seeing committing acts of violence along the way? That's right, it's been members of the caravans as they reject the authorities in the cities and countries they are passing through, sometimes even attacking them. Let me just remind you of a couple instances.
Yesterday Mexico's border was violently attacked by another Migrant Caravan group traveling to the U.S.
1 migrant was killed, 6 police were injured

But don't bother the youngest member of Congress ever with those facts.
She simply doubles down in her stupidity.
“You were forced out of the Trump Admin for saying white supremacists were ‘not the problem’ days before Neo-Nazis in Charlottesville killed 3 people,” Ocasio-Cortez shot back at Gorka.
“Pretty sure we’re on the right side of history if you’re my opposition. This is not about atrocity. It’s about how we get there,” she added.
Is that "pretty sure" like all those other instances where you seemed less than pretty sure? Maybe she is as sure that she is on the right side of history as she was about the "three chambers of government."
While I don't relish such stupid, ignorant Socialist/Communists in our government, I do have to say that she is sure to provide the media with plenty of fodder during her term in office. Sad to say, she is going to embarrass all those she represents. Wait, did I say "going to embarrass"? I meant, she is embarrassing them.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
