Elder Patriot –OPINION – New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez complained about the public feud brewing between her four-member posse – Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Talib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressly (D-MA) – and the less radical members of Speaker Pelosi’s far-left caucus.
The four freshmen Anarchists/Marxists are becoming known as “the squad.”
Only this week, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez publicly whined:
“It’s singling out four individuals, and knowing the media environment that we’re operating in, knowing the amount of death threats that we get, knowing the amount of concentration of attention I think it’s just worth asking why.”
Crybaby radical AOC apparently thought it was appropriate for her to complain about “death threats” without regard for her own very public statements that likely were the cause of someone’s death yesterday.
First, some background. From Fox News:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: The U.S. is ‘running concentration camps on our southern border
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, on Monday told her Instagram followers that the U.S. government is “running concentration camps on our southern border.”
“That is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps,” Ocasio-Cortez said during a live-stream that was viewed by Fox News.
“The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the Home of the Free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it,” the freshman Democrat continued.
The New York representative insisted that “we are losing to an authoritarian and fascist presidency.”
“I don’t use those words lightly,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “I don’t use those words to just throw bombs. I use that word because that is what an administration that creates concentration camps is. A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist and it’s very difficult to say that.”
In a video posted to her Instagram last night, @AOC accused the United States of running concentration camps at the southern border.

It’s likely AOC flat-out lied when she tweeted:
Reverend Samuel Rodriguez, President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, toured the same facilities and had a completely different take on conditions there:
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez continued personalizing her attacks on the Border Patrol agents doing their best under increasingly difficult circumstances. Increasingly difficult because Democrats refuse to acknowledge the growing numbers of illegal migrants.
Then, last night, following hours of protests, an armed man attempted to blow up a Tacoma, Washington ICE detention facility by hurling incendiary devices at the center. He was shot and killed by four ICE officers defending the facility.
WASHINGTON – An armed man was fatally shot early Saturday during a confrontation with police after he hurled incendiary devices at a Washington state immigration detention center, Tacoma police said.
Police said the man set a vehicle ablaze in the center’s parking lot and attempted to ignite a propane tank with a flare to set the building on fire. Officers called out to the man and shots were fired, according to a police statement. It’s not known whether the man fired on the officers, [spokesperson Loretta] Cool said.
According to the Seattle Times the deranged man, with a history of politically-motivated violent acts, committed these crimes to call attention to the “fight” Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is waging.
With this background now established, let’s re-examine AOC’s own words:
singling out … and knowing the media environment that we’re operating in, knowing the amount of death threats that we get, knowing the amount of concentration of attention…
Hey AOC, it’s time to acknowledge that your constant public flogging of ICE and CBP means you bear some responsibility for constantly comparing these facilities to concentration camps?
As a very public figure, it’s time to take responsibility for your actions.
I’ll say it for you, the death of Willem Van Spronsenis is directly attributable to the dangerous incitement by you and other Democrats.
Shame on you. Grow up.
