Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) embraced the anti-Semitic Women’s March just days after the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and other left-wing organizations cut ties with the movement over blatant anti-Semitism.
Right-wing activist Laura Loomer confronts socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY): "Why are you standing with people who openly support Hamas, a terrorist organization that kills Jewish people?"— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) 20 January 2019

The anti-Semitism and racism within the Women’s March is so pervasive that the group’s founder, Theresa Shook, called on all the co-chairs to step down for allowing “anti-Semitism, anti-LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform.”
Women’s March co-president Tamika Mallory recently defended calling Louis Farrakhan the “greatest of all time,” and refused to affirm Israel’s right to exist in two separate interviews.
Anti-Semitism within the Women’s March is so blatant that the DNC and far-left Emily’s List cut ties with the organization last week.
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) also cut ties with the Women’s March this week over its anti-Semitism, writing: “I cannot associate with the national march’s leaders and principles, which refuse to completely repudiate anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry. I cannot walk shoulder to shoulder with leaders who lock arms with outspoken peddlers of hate.”
With many on the Left abandoning the group over its anti-Semitism, Ocasio-Cortez ran to it and embraced it.
In a video provided to The Daily Wire by right-wing activist Laura Loomer, Loomer confronted Ocasio-Cortez, asking, “Why are you standing with people who openly support Hamas, a terrorist organization that kills Jewish people?”
Ocasio-Cortez would not give an answer.
