Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Attends Women’s March Despite Allegations of Anti-Semitism

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) attended New York City’s Women’s March on Saturday, raising questions about whether she has any issue with the allegations of anti-Semitism that have plagued the event’s national organizers.

The Women’s March found itself embroiled in controversy after leaders of the event refused to denounce anti-Semitic hatemonger Louis Farrakhan. The incident caused sponsors of the event, like the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and EMILY’s List, to pull their support.

Several prominent Democrats who have 2020 ambitions announced they would not be attending this year’s Women’s March after these allegations of anti-Semitism surfaced.

However, the allegations weren’t enough to keep Ocasio-Cortez, who some have deemed the “future” of the Democratic Party, away from the event.

Ocasio-Cortez posted a picture of herself with supporters at the Women’s March on Saturday with the caption, “#TeamAOC taking the future to the streets today.”

Ocasio-Cortez also posted some video of event organizers speaking at the Women’s March on her Instagram account.

Corey Torpie Photography, who took the above picture of Ocasio-Cortez, also posted several photos of the freshman congresswoman marching in the New York City Women’s March on her Instagram account.
