A great philosopher with an affinity for boxed chocolates once said, “Stupid is as stupid does.” Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who along with fellow Squad members Ilhan Omar and Rashida Talib, attempted to kill funding of Israel’s Iron Dome weapon system. Iron Dome is a purely defensive system that intercepts and destroys incoming missiles launched toward Israel from the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah. The elimination of funding would essentially bring a gradual end to the system and make thousands of Israeli citizens – Jews, Christians, and Muslims – vulnerable to being killed.
I realize that these members of Congress want nothing more than to see the annihilation of the state of Israel, so it’s understandable that they were annoyed and beside themselves when wiser Democrats (and that’s a term I hardly ever use) stepped up and restored funding for the system. But AOC was so upset by the restoration of the defensive system that she actually boo-hoo’d to a fellow Democrat congresswoman who hugged and comforted the nitwit.
It shouldn’t be brushed under the carpet, that the other nitwit, one Nancy Pelosi, Speaker-of-the-House and someone who is frighteningly in the line of succession to be President of the United States should anything terrible happen to the other two nitwits who are currently driving the nation over a cliff – actually allowed the defunding of Iron Dome to be included in the initial bill before its funding was restored.
Does anyone believe that any of the so-called intrepid journalists of the New York Times or the Washington Post, or anchors on CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, or CBS will call out AOC for her supreme idiocy and her apparent tearful display that Israeli citizens won’t be mass murdered by Hamas or Hezbollah rockets? Don’t hold your breath.Published in
