Well, looks like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has opted to not take people’s advice to “sit the f*ck down” after lashing out at Ilhan Omar’s critics, because she’s still going strong:
AOC on NY Post/Ilhan Omar front page: “We are getting to the level where this is an incitement of violence against progressive women of color and if they can’t figure out how to get it back to policy, we need to call it out for what it is because this is not normal.” pic.twitter.com/Zxad5H4I8n

Gotta love how she’s suddenly worried about “triggering” New Yorkers who were there on 9/11 after sticking up for a woman who whitewashed 9/11 terrorists. Gotta love the way she pulls out the sex and race cards instead of acknowledging that what Ilhan Omar said was awful. Gotta love the way she so stunningly and bravely dismisses any criticism of her and her like-minded “progressive women of color” by accusing her critics of “incitement of violence.”
Give them credit for all uniformly repeating the same talking point over and over again. https://t.co/1wFxzdtoeb

So she’s capable of sticking to a script, at least.
Legitimate criticism = incitement of violence

Progressive women of color are apparently perpetual victims who don’t take accountability for anything

Love how they can attack and call anyone that disagrees with them a Nazi but the moment you say something, you’re inciting violence. #GTFO

A feminist who wants her ideas to go unchallenged. Just a commie seeking power and not wanting anyone to confront/contradict here and then hiding behind her color and gender. https://t.co/SMJFJ1f1dJ

She’s pathetic. Dishonest, and pathetic.
Protip to @AOC? Trying to defend downplaying 9/11 doesn't go over well in NYC. And you're right. It isn't normal that the far left freshmen keep saying and doing these things.

In other words, Democrats can't defend the statement of Rep. Omar with reasoned argument based on objective evidence, so they accuse anyone who dares to object of being a racist effectively encouraging lynching.
To me, Rep. Omar's statement was disgusting, and deeply offensive.
