Wow! This Democrat won the primary over a longtime leader in the party (see below) and she can’t articulate what she means regarding Israel and Palestine? This is such a great example of the left parroting what they hear and then spitting it out without being able to back it up. It’s almost uncomfortable to watch her squirm…
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attacks Israel, calls them the occupiers of Palestine.
When pressed on what she meant she struggled to give an answer and then admitted she does not know what she is talking about.

OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON OCASIO-CORTEZ:
This is what happens when you become complacent…Democrat leader Joe Crowley had not faced a challenger from his own party in 14 years until Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came along…She was a bartender a year ago….
One year ago, @Ocasio2018 was working at a craft cocktail bar in Manhattan — their website still has an image of her mixing drinks. From the bar, to destroying the Queens Democratic machine, in one year. pic.twitter.com/XvmDYxAXG4

She ran a low-budget campaign and was outspent by an 18-1 margin. She won the endorsement of some influential groups on the party’s left, including MoveOn, and has been a community organizer in the Bronx.
Bernie Supporter Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez beat a seasoned 11 term Democrat tonight to bring on an even m0re radical move to the left. Ocasio-Cortez campaigned on abolishing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency and pushing the Medicare-for-all bill carried by Bernie Sanders. She’s also a supporter of Black Lives Matter. Is she a fringe candidate or the future of the new and more radical wing of the Democrat party?
Ocasio-Cortez was born in the Bronx and attended Boston University.
She worked on Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential bid, and PACs linked to Sanders’ bid supported Ocasio-Cortez, including Brand New Congress and Justice Democrats. She was endorsed by Our Revolution, Democracy for America and the New York City Democratic Socialists of America.
The district Ocasio-Cortez would represent is made up of 40% Latinos and includes the Bronx and Queens.
