In a recent Twitter rant, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) attempted to defend her Squad member Rep. Rashida Tlaib after she was censured by the House over an anti-Semitic video post. AOC, known for her incessant whining and complaining on social media, seemed to conveniently forget the recent censure of Rep. Adam Schiff and how House Republicans handled allegations of racism against Rep. Steve King.
AOC’s Whingey Twitter Hot Take on Rashida Tlaib’s Censure Gets Interrupted by Some Inconvenient Truthshttps://t.co/ZLmQU6RhEU

While King faced severe consequences from the House GOP over his comments about white supremacy, the House Democrats, at AOC’s urging, chose not to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar by name for her repeated use of anti-Semitic tropes. Instead, they passed a watered-down and toothless “anti-hate” resolution, effectively letting Omar off the hook.
It’s clear that AOC wants to play the victim and use her “person of color” card as a shield to escape accountability for the offensive and dangerous remarks made by her squad mate. But sorry, honey bun, that card is no longer valid. It’s time to hold politicians accountable, regardless of their race or ethnicity.
Tlaib’s endorsement of the genocidal slogan “from the river to the sea” should never be tolerated, and it’s about time she faced consequences for her reprehensible statements. The fact that she and her Hamas-endorsed buddies in the House refused to vote for her censure just goes to show where their true loyalties lie.
It’s time for the Democrats, especially the radical leftists like AOC, to stop playing identity politics and start condemning hateful and dangerous rhetoric from their own side. The “person of color” card may have worked in the past, but it’s time to tear it up and hold everyone accountable, regardless of their race.
