Hey, you know what should really help AOC shed that âanti-Semiteâ label? Besides trivializing the Holocaust and agreeing that the Israeli government is âcriminalâ and giving Palestinians âno choice but to riot,â we mean.
How about promoting notoriously anti-Semitic groups? Letâs start with J Street, who took the opportunity to laud AOC for her recent anti-Israel radio interview:
âCriticizing the occupation doesn't make you anti-Israel, frankly. It doesn't mean that you are against the existence of a nation,â @AOC argues. âIt means that you believe in human rights."https://t.co/147iEe7gAG
â J Street (@jstreetdotorg) July 31, 2019
Sheâs so grateful for their support:
âTrue peace is not the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.â
Thankful for the wide, intergenerational coalition of communities coming together â Israeli & Palestinian, Jewish & Muslim, American & around the world â seeking to advance that peace and justice. https://t.co/xs9hPp0Jv3
â Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 31, 2019
Isnât it difficult to advance peace and justice when youâre using the very loaded term âoccupationâ? AndÂ making excuses for people attacking Israel?
You just justified violence against Jews so don't even.

But we digress.
J Street is not interested in coming together with Zionist Jews or their supporters. They donât want to advance peace and justice so much as traffic in anti-Semitism and sow seeds of discord with regard to Israel.
As if that werenât enough, AOCâs also promoting IfNotNow:
Thank you @AOC for the shoutout on @HOT97 and for tirelessly calling out Trump for weaponizing antisemitism and fighting for justice for all people â including American Jews, Israelis, & Palestinians. We have your back and itâs incredible to have a leader like you that has ours.
â IfNotNow? (@IfNotNowOrg) July 31, 2019
If anyoneâs weaponizing anti-Semitism, itâs AOC and groups like IfNotNow. If youâre not familiar with IfNotNow, you should be. Theyâre a rabidly anti-Semitic group with strong ties to other rabidly anti-Semitic groups.
If you want to discuss antisemitism then discuss it with representatives of the mainstream Jewish community not left wing, anti Israel antisemitic groups like @IfNotNowOrg

AOCâs cozy relationship with groups like J Street and IfNotNow should raise the red flags even higher.
Theyâd love to live in peace, but when one side doesnât believe in anotherâs right to exist, and would kill you in the drop of a hat, then yes there is a problem! Donât know how you can defend that!

Hard to have peace when one sides ultimate goal is the destruction of the other. And donât act like thatâs not the long term end goal.
