Kirsters Baish| New York Democratic Socialist “sweetheart” Alexandria Ocasio recently attacked the nation of Israel while being interviewed on PBS’s “Firing Line.” She called the country Palestine occupiers. She also later made a shocking admission… that she didn’t even know what she was talking about in regards to Israel.
The Democratic Socialist made the comments after being asked a question by host Margaret Hoover. Hoover asked her to expand on statements she had made about Israel after she launched an attack on the nation for standing up for themselves in a Hamas terrorist attack. The 28-year-old New York politician called the shootings a “massacre.” She also stated that she feels that Israel does have the right to “exist.” After that she said “I also think that what people are starting to see, at least, in the occupation of Palestine, is just an increasing crisis of humanitarian condition. And that, to me, is just where I tend to come from on this issue.”
Hoover then asked Ocasio-Cortez, “You use the term ‘the occupation of Palestine.’ What do you mean by that?”
The Democratic Socialist had a hard time answering, “Um… I think what I meant is … like … the settlements that are increasing in some of these areas and places where Palestinians are experiencing difficulty in access to their housing and homes.”
Hoover then requested, “Do you think you can expand on that?”
Ocasio-Cortez desperately searched for the right words, “Yeah… I mean, I think … I’d … also just— I am not the expert on geo-politics on this issue.”

How are New Yorkers so out of the loop that they are willing to elect someone who doesn’t have the first idea about politics or world events? This woman has been called the new face of the Democratic Party. She doesn’t even know the first thing about foreign nations and world issues. No wonder Democrats are leaving the Party in record numbers.
