AOC on Omar’s Anti-Semitic Tweet: ‘I’m Proud’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that she was “proud” of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Tuesday for her “sensitivity to communities” after sending out an anti-Semitic tweet over the weekend.

Over the weekend, Omar tweeted anti-Semitic stereotypes that Jewish money fuels U.S. backing for Israel, for which she eventually issued an apology, though would not do so on camera.

“Unlike this President, Rep. @IlhanMN demonstrated a capacity to acknowledge pain & apologize, use the opportunity to learn abt history of antisemitism,+grow from it while clarifying her stance,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Tuesday.

Ocasio-Cortez also praised Jewish leaders “who brought her in, not push her out, to heal.”

“Lots of people here proclaiming to be ‘woke’ trying to police communities on what they are/aren’t allowed to be upset by,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “I’m proud @IlhanMN raised the issue of lobbyist :moneybag: in politics & equally proud of her sensitivity to communities. Both are possible.”
