Ocasio-Cortez Fires Back at Cruz After He Criticizes Biden's Reference to Nazis

by James Crowley | January 9, 2020

New York Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez responded to Texas Senator Ted Cruz's complaints about President-elect Joe Biden's references to Nazis in a pair of tweets Saturday, calling for Cruz to resign in the wake of the deadly Capitol riot.

Cruz quote-tweeted a Washington Post reporter who had written about a remark that Biden had made at a press conference on Saturday. Biden responded to a reporter who asked if Cruz or Senator Josh Hawley should resign. The president-elect said they should be beaten next time they run.

Both Cruz and Hawley have experienced backlash for their challenge to the certification of Electoral College votes for President-elect Joe Biden's victory prior to the mob assault on the Capitol, which left five people dead. Cruz and Hawley condemned the riot as they are under scrutiny for trying to overturn the election results.

Biden said that the senators were "part of the big lie" and shared an anecdote about Nazi minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, exaggerating the number of people killed in the firebombing of Dresden and the papers printed it.

"They're part of the big lie," he said at the press conference. "We're told that Goebbels and the great lie: you keep repeating the lie, repeating the lie."

Biden then said that Republican politicians following Trump's lying are harmful, noting the president's attacks on the media. "If he's the only one saying it, that's one thing, but the acolytes that follow him, like Cruz and others, they are as responsible as he is. So, it's not about whether or not they get impeached—it's about whether or not they continue to to hold power, because of the disgust the American people have for their actions," he said.

In his tweets Friday evening, Cruz criticized Biden's mention of Goebbels, saying he was sowing division.

"At a time of deep national division, President-elect Biden's choice to call his political opponents literal Nazis does nothing to bring us together or promote healing," Cruz wrote. "This kind of vicious partisan rhetoric only tears our country apart."

Ocasio-Cortez quote-tweeted Cruz and noted anti-Semitic displays by protesters as well as gallows and calls to hang Vice President Mike Pence. In a second tweet, the New York congresswoman also mentioned Illinois freshman Republican Congresswoman Mary Miller's recent comments, in which she referenced Hitler when speaking about propaganda being targeted towards children.

"Hitler was right on one thing: He said, 'Whoever has the youth, has the future.' Our children are being propagandized," Miller said at a rally on Tuesday. She has since apologized for the comment, according to The New York Times.

"Your continued excusal and denial of Wednesday's Neo-Nazi presence is abhorrent and dangerous," Ocasio-Cortez addressed to Cruz in her tweet, before calling on the Texas senator to resign.

Josef Goebbels was the Nazi propaganda minister. He said, "The lie has no place in propaganda."

People's moronicity is become unbearable -- notably the 'Big lie' big lie. Goebbels and or Hitler were decrying how kikes have pioneered and maximized it, not advocating it.

I just can't believe we're stuck with another round of the Squad and Pelosi in addition to Prexy Trollop. The masses are asses.....

And it does not help matters when the computerized voting machines are tabulating the votes in a fraudulent manner.

In one test of the Dominion voting machines, equal number of Trump and Biden ballots were put thru a voting machine. The results came back as 60% Biden to 40% Trump. ;)

60 and 40 -- they're so brazen about it. Y'all have heard me say for years that they're routinely stealing elections, notably for Flimsey Graham and his little friend John McVain -- and now they're make no effort at all to hide it. Thy simply stole the presidency outright.

The whole world knows voting machines connected to the internet is madness. The whole world knew Dominion was totally corrupt months ago - - when exposed they vacated and closed both their Canadian and US main offices and disappeared! But their stuff was brazenly used again in GA to bring us the hateful jew and and the despicable negro.
