What is it with the left and their dubious ancestry claims to cling to oppressed peoples for cheap political points?
It what should be a national outrage, the left sat by and winced and said nothing as Liz Warren disgraced our laws designed to help less fortunate groups and mocked native Indians and their struggles in the process.
And now comes socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who is trying to claim Jewish ancestry.
“[My family has] been doing a lot of family trees in the last couple of years,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“And one of the things a lot of people don’t know about Puerto Rico, and something we discovered ourselves, is that a long time ago, many generations ago, my family consisted of Sephardic Jews.”
“The story goes that during the Spanish Inquisition, Jews were forced, on the exterior, to convert to Catholicism, but on the interior, they continued to be who they were, continued to practice their faith,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“A strong group of people, who wanted to continue living life the way they wanted to live it, decided to get on a boat and leave Spain. Some of these people ended up in Puerto Rico.”
“I think it all goes to show that our destinies are tied beyond our understanding, beyond even what we know,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.
“And as we learn more and more about the histories of others, our friends and neighbors, we start to uncover what we already know to be true: Your destiny is mine, and my destiny is yours.”
This new con comes on the heels of Cortez making a serious blunder when she threatened Don Trump Jr. You cannot use positions of authority and wield them like a cudgel over the less powerful.
Which is just what Democratic Socialist Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did to Don Trump Jr. and now she faces a possible ethics investigations.
From The Daily Caller: Commenters online are calling for an ethics investigation into Democratic Socialist Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after she threatened Donald Trump Jr. for posting a meme making fun of her.
Donald Trump Jr. shared a meme that featured Ocasio-Cortez on his Instagram that claimed the policies of socialism will cause Americans to eat their dogs.
The meme shows two images: one of Ocasio-Cortez with the text, “Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?” and another image beneath Ocasio-Cortez of President Donald Trump with an overlay of text saying, “Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”
In response to a Washington Post write up of the meme, Ocasio-Cortez threatened to use the “subpoena power” of Congress against Trump Jr.
“I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up,” Ocasio-Cortez said, “Please, keep it coming Jr [sic] — it’s definitely a ‘very, very large brain’ idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month. Have fun.”
