Democrats’ hot rising star just made a career-ending blunder in this interview
The national media is promoting avowed Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as the future of the Democrat Party.
Since knocking off a 10-term Democrat incumbent, she’s been hailed as one of the Democrats’ rising stars.
But she just made a career-ending blunder in an interview that may dash socialists’ hopes and dreams.
In an interview with Firing Line, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that Israel was occupying Palestine.
When asked if she could clarify what she meant she threw her hands up and said, “Yeah, I think I’d also just… I am not the expert on geopolitics on this issue.”

When pressed on what she meant she struggled to give an answer and then admitted she does not know what she is talking about. pic.twitter.com/e3Uq1eupD3

Despite (supposedly) graduating from Boston University with a bachelor’s degree in economics and international relations, Ocasio-Cortez is simply parroting anti-Israel leftist talking points.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has demonstrated an open hostility to the state of Israel since her election.
It was another embarrassing moment for a newly nominated candidate and soon to be Congresswoman.
Not only is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez willing to throw our great ally under the bus, she is incapable of defending why she believes Israel deserves this treatment. She even admitted that she is uninformed on geopolitics and this issue.
Yet, she is willing to forsake one of our best allies in the region?
Democrats have nominated a candidate with zero knowledge of foreign affairs to be their new torchbearer.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist ideology, ignorance, and inability to answer legitimate questions could torpedo Democrats’ chances of taking back Congress in the November Midterms.
If a Republican candidate were to embarrass themselves this badly in a softball interview, it would be a career-ender.
We would never hear the end of it from MSNBC, CNN, and all the late night talk shows.
Yet Democrats and the mainstream media are still heaping praise on her while she continues to make mistakes and propose dangerous ideas.
