Elder Patriot – The new darling of the Left, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is proving to be incredibly ignorant of history, incredibly unable to temper her words, and incredibly unable (or unwilling) to distinguish between political rhetoric and outright dangerous assertions.
Yesterday, Ocasio-Cortez once again displayed her ignorance of historical facts and her willingness to engage in conflagratory comparisons when she took to Twitter to compare the army of invaders that originated in Central America with victims of the Holocaust:
Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime.
It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany.
It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.
It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria.
And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America. https://t.co/qhv7Rr1itn

These are pictures of Holocaust survivors:
And, this is a picture of those Jews who didn’t survive:
Ocasio-Cortez’s ignorance, or deliberate purpose, in conflating the economic migrants seen in the photos below with the victims of genocide is beyond disgusting, it’s dangerous.
The migrant caravan is comprised of people who are well-fed and well-clothed.
Then there’s this observation courtesy of photographer Luke Hanson who studied photos of the border rushers:
@bbusa617 @SaraCarterDC @realDonaldTrump needs to set the record straight..as a photographer I agree with the person who pointed out the”obvious posing below”,these are not “victims” they are subjects posing for photographers who will then sell these photos to MSM to exploit? pic.twitter.com/h0rjFFDFLu

Staging pictures, them framing and advancing fake narratives around those pictures should be unacceptable for those elected and entrusted with leadership.
