In a thread defending fellow Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez asked why other members of Congress aren’t disciplined for their remarks, like in January when GOP Rep. Jason Smith from Missouri shouted, “Go back to Puerto Rico!” at Democrats during a shutdown debate on the House floor:

Well, maybe Rep. Smith wasn’t disciplined for it because he was shouting at Democrats who had just returned from a vacation in Puerto Rico?

And Rep. Ocasio-Cortez KNOWS THIS:

And this has nothing to do with Rep. Omar accusing Jewish Americans of dual loyalty:

She went on to say rather than calling out Rep. Omar, we should  be “calling in” and explain why the remark was hurtful:

“Calling in” like how Rep. Omar’s Jewish constituents have been doing?
