In 2021, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez cried on the House floor after the House of Representatives did not vote to defund Israel’s Iron Dome which protects that country from airstrikes by their hostile neighbors. She believes that a small country trying to protect itself from attack by countries that want to wipe them off the map is somehow inhumane.
AOC was also the representative, who in the same breath, condemned Hamas’ recent terrorist attack on Israel which targeted innocent civilians and killed the elderly and babies, and then urged Israel not to fight back in response to these attacks. She believes that Israel should not have a system designed to protect itself from attacks and they should also not fight back when they are attacked. What does she recommend Israel to do, bend over and say, “thank you sir, may I have another.”?
Here is a person who produced a video of herself tearfully describing how she feared for her life during the January 6th riot at the Capital when she wasn’t even in the Capital at the time of the riot and now, she is going to lecture Israeli people on how to respond to one of the deadliest terror attacks in modern history while also voting against their protection.
That is exactly what liberals are doing to America. They have opened our southern border so anyone can walk into the United States unimpeded and unvetted. And 7 million people from around the world who we know nothing about have illegally entered this country since Joe Biden’s inauguration. It is estimated that thousands of terrorists and even more criminal aliens and drug cartel members have walked across our southern border since January 2021.
At the same time, the left is allowing untold numbers of violent criminals into America, they want to defund the police so we will have less law enforcement protection against all of the new violent criminal aliens they have allowed to enter the U.S. in the last two and a half years. And on top of that, like their vote to defund Israel’s Iron Dome, they are voting to take guns away from law abiding citizens so the average American will be sitting ducks against these criminal aliens who they have ushered in America, just as they want Israel to be sitting ducks against Hamas and Iran.
It is fair to ask, whose side are people like AOC on? It appears that the left in America is on the side of Hamas, the drug cartels, the MS -13 gang members and the criminal aliens. These people do not care about innocent people dying, no matter how many tears they shed. They never care about the people they cry for. Her tears are pure crocodile tears, pretending to care about the death of the innocent when she is attempting to exploit those deaths.
Remember, she was the politician who went down to the southern border during Trump’s Presidency and shed a bucket of crocodile tears for kids in “cages”, but now does not say a word about the hundreds of thousands of children who have died or have been victims of trafficking as a result of Biden’s open border policy. Does she care about the suffering of children? Absolutely not.
This past week, Israel Defense Force has warned the people in Gaza that they should evacuate Gaza to protect them from the airstrikes they are planning to conduct in that area to destroy Hamas. Unlike Hamas, the IDF is doing everything possible to avoid civilian casualties. Israel released a statement saying, “IDF is operating to eliminate Hamas in Gaza. Our war is not with the people of Gaza. Let me say that again. Our war is not with the people of Gaza."
In response to this warning, Hamas is blocking all the evacuation routes preventing innocent civilians of Gaza from leaving. Hamas is essentially using the innocent whose deaths they will later cry over as human shields. They are also preventing Americans in Gaza from evacuating that area as well. Hamas wants to maximize civilian and American casualties in Gaza when the IDF launches its airstrikes against Hamas, so people like AOC will dutifully go to the House floor or produce a tearful video about the innocent civilians of Gaza who were killed in Israel’s attack, and never mention how those civilians were killed as a result of Hamas’ blockades preventing them from evacuating the area.
This is all one big game to these people. Hamas now denies killing civilians and babies in their attack on Israel, when there are many videos already out there showing the slaughter of babies, some that they even released themselves. And this is the way it always works. They launch an unprovoked terrorist attack on Israel, so vicious and inhumane that Israel has no choice but to hit them back. And then the terrorists do everything to maximize the civilian casualties from Israel’s response, and then try to paint Israel as the villain and themselves as the victims when everyone with a brain knows that all these innocent people would never have been killed if Hamas did not attack in the first place. Hamas intentionally knocked over the first domino.
The problem is that it works. People with zero intellectual depth get fooled every time. People like AOC and Hamas do not care about the deaths of innocent people, they merely want to exploit the fact that good hearted people care about the innocent for their own nefarious agenda which in this case is, the destruction of the State of Israel.
