In a desperate attempt to keep her title as the dumbest bartender in America, AOC has accused Israel of locking up Palestinian children in cages. She provided no proof and she is not fearful that she will lose credibility, because in order to lose credibility you must first have it.
Speaking at an Austin Democratic Socialists of America event held in Texas far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested that Israel has Palestinian children locked up in cages. But, she provided no proof. Being a Democrat means never having t be truthful and AOC is pushing the boundaries on that.
AOC was taken to the woodshed over her comments by such groups as the American Jewish Committee who tweeted:
“@AOC, you know as well as we do that there are no Palestinian children ‘in cages’ in the West Bank. This kind of gross misinformation hurts chances for reasonable discussion and furthers harmful biases. You must apologize for these baseless allegations.”

The Simon Wiesenthal Center echoed:
“@RepAOC demonizing Jews at a time of raging #Antisemitism in NYC. Throwing children into cages is inhuman and cruel. Prove it or apologize. You are legitimizing hatred against Jewish people everywhere.”

Israel War Room tweeted:
“This should go without saying, but Israel does not have children in cages in the West Bank, @AOC. This vicious libel mirrors the libels that have plagued Jewish civilization for centuries.”
United With Israel fired:
“Dear @AOC, I also don’t believe that children should be in cages. Please reply with one example of a Palestinian child being held in a cage by the State of Israel. Ever. Looking forward to hearing from you.”
Executive Editor of the Washington Examiner Magazine Seth Mandel blasted, “‘Ocasio-Cortez’s office did not respond when asked on Monday to provide examples of children being imprisoned in cages in the West Bank.’ Not sure there’s a politician alive today pushing a wider range of blood libels.”
Last Christmas Eve, a staffer for Ocasio-Cortez called Israel “a racist European ethnostate built on stolen land from its indigenous population.” Hussain Altamimi, who began his tenure as a legislative assistant to Ocasio-Cortez in the fall, posted an Instagram story in which he wrote, “Israel is a racist European ethnostate built on stolen land from its indigenous population!” Fox News Digital took a screenshot of the post.
In September, Ocasio-Cortez appeared to cry after the House passed a bill to fund Israel’s Iron Dome, which protects the Jewish state from rocket attacks from the terrorist groups Hamas in the south and Hezbollah in the north.
