Who Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

Yes, indeed… today’s media is in quite the tizzy. Aside from melting down over the Anthony Kennedy retirement it is going into paroxysms of ecstasy over the candidacy of one Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A Bernie Sanders radical Democratic Socialist AOC defeated long term Congressman Joe Crowley to become the nominee for a Congressional seat in Queens, NY.

And yet, what do we really know about AOC. Naturally, the media is doing everything in its power to cover up her association with anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic groups… like Hamas.

Joel Pollak tells the story in Breitbart:

Her victory is a further sign of the Democratic Party’s slide toward the extreme left — and toward the anti-Israel left in particular.

During her primary election, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted passionately about an alleged Israeli “massacre” of Palestinian “protesters” at the Gaza border, citing an Al Jazeera article.

Here is the text of her tweet:

This is a massacre.

I hope my peers have the moral courage to call it such.

No state or entity is absolved of mass shootings of protesters. There is no justification. Palestinian people deserve basic human dignity, as anyone else.

Democrats can’t be silent about this anymore.

The link sends you to Al Jazeera. Where else?

Pollak sets the record straight:

But those killed at the Gaza border were not “protesters.” The vast majority — 50 of 62 — were members of Hamas, a terrorist organization devoted to the destruction of Israel and the murder of Jews. They were not demonstrating against Israel. They were attempting to breach the border so they could carry out attacks against Israeli civilians.

Far from carrying out a “massacre,” Israeli forces showed extraordinary restraint, using pinpoint attacks to target the terrorists and avoid hitting the many human shields — including children — that Hamas marched to the fence. In the event, the so-called “peaceful” protesters set fire to Israeli fields nearby using kites equipped with explosives.

So, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez looks to become a reliable conduit for Hamas propaganda. Way to go, today’s Democratic Party.

That’s not all, folks. The Daily Caller tells the story of one of OAC’s leading supporters, one Thomas Lopez-Pierre. TLP is not merely an anti-Semite. He is also a racist.

The Daily Caller explains:

One of Ocasio-Cortez’s most enthusiastic campaigners and a man who stood behind her at her victory party, Thomas Lopez-Pierre, is a known anti-Semite and racist. Lopez-Pierre has regularly used slurs against Jewish and black New Yorkers in public forums and while running for office himself.

The evidence, please:

While running for office in 2017, Lopez-Pierre specifically campaigned on “protecting tenants from greedy Jewish landlords.” Lopez-Pierre’s own campaign website shows his rantings agains “Greedy Jewish Landlords.” His campaign website applauds the arrest of “Greedy Jewish Landlords” and says that “Jewish Landlords” are “punishing” black and Hispanic families.

Naturally, he was drawn to Ocasio-Cortez’s candidacy:

On that same YouTube channel, Lopez-Pierre can be seen campaigning for Ocasio-Cortez. In a recent video, he is wearing a Ocasio-Cortez campaign shirt and declaring that he is campaigning against “greedy landlords.” The caption on the video reads: “Thomas Lopez-Pierre campaigning in the Bronx for Democratic Congressional Pro-Tenant Candidate (2018): Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – SHE WON!!!”

Lopez-Pierre also posted a video of him smiling at Ocasio-Cortez’s victory party as the candidate gives a speech about inclusion and tolerance.

Lopez-Pierre posted many pro-Ocasio-Cortez messages on Twitter, saying she will fight against “greedy landlords.”

You see, TLP has learned not to speak of Greedy Jewish Landlords. Now, he just writes about greedy landlords. Wouldn’t want to give the game away.

He tweeted this:

I am so proud of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @Ocasio2018 for defeating @repjoecrowley, a @realDonaldTrump Democrat by thousands of votes. Alexandria can be trusted to help protect tenants from “Greedy Landlords” and reject corporate political campaign contributions.

Meanwhile, back in 2013 TLP was running for city council against a man named Mark Levine. In the course of the campaign TLP took out after a black Levine supporter:

In 2013 while running for city council, Lopez-Pierre sent a racist, homophobic email to a black supporter of his opponent, Mark Levine. The supporter, named Brain Benjamin, was called a “N***er” five times, a “Bitch” six times and saying he is a “weak, little short man who sucks White/Jewish cock.” Lopez-Pierre also threatened Benjamin with violence.

Politico has the text of the email he sent to Brain Benjamin:

Lopez-Pierre admitted to sending the email. Here is the full, uncensored text of the racist email, according to Politico:

Subject: Brain Benjamin you uncle Tom Nigger bitch who sucks cook – Thomas Lopez-Pierre January 3, 2013

Brain Benjamin:

First I would like to say Happy New Year!

Now that bullshit is out of the way, I wanted to say this to your face but I did not want my words to be misunderstood.

So I am sending it to you in writing and sharing it with others.

I see that you are on the host committee for Mark Levine for City Council.

I would hope that one day you would give me the legal grounds to bitch slap you.

You are an uncle Tom Nigger bitch.

Its Nigger bitches like you that have sold out the Black people of Harlem.

To think there are about eight other candidates in this race that are Black and Hispanic and you decided to pick Mark Levine the only White/Jewish guy in the race to raise money for.

What good does it do our community (by this I mean Black and Hispanic people) to have uncle Tom Nigger bitches like you graduate from Ivy League schools if all you do is suck the cock of guys like Mark Levine.

All the best,

Thomas Lopez-Pierre

PS, The reason why you got your Nigger ass kicked (politically) by Jamaal Nelson when you ran for district leader is because Black people in Harlem can smell the Bitch in you.

I do not need to mention that if anyone else had used such language, he would long since have been driven from the political arena. Now, Thomas Lopez-Pierre emerges as a strong supporter of Democratic Party darling, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Shouldn’t she have to answer for the company she keeps?

You know that she won’t… because different rules apply to different people in today’s America.

Forget it, Jake; it's New York City. They like infestations of Democrats.

NYC:If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.

So they say.
But what are they making?

She's the recipient of multiple social writs of forgiveness bestowed by our insect overlords.
Remember when the celebrity philosophers trilled about bravery and pride when a former athlete underwent disfiguring surgery, wobbled around in high heels and pretended he's a female? Yeah, like that.
Makes one nauseous.
And Sam L. is correct: Forget it, Jake. The best we can do is expose the antics and ignore the fawning zealots; the divide will find it's own borders.
Cheers y'all.
