The Convenience of Victimhood: AOC Calls NY Post's Message to Omar 'An Incitement of Violence Against Progressive Women of Color'


My colleague, Brandon Morse posted yesterday about the New York Post’s response to Ilhan Omar’s reference to 9/11 as “some people did something” here.


On Thursday afternoon, AOC decided to weigh in. She told reporters that, “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.”

Okay, let’s get a handle on what’s happening here. Anti-Semite Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) reduces an American tragedy to “some people did something.” This is the same as calling the attack on Pearl Harbor a Japanese training exercise. She gets called out for it. Then her great pal, media darling AOC, leaps to her defense by perverting the facts and turning this into an insult to progressive women of color.

Democrats have this great ability to transmogrify any act of wrongdoing on their part into an offense against them. Usually, as AOC has done in this case, they portray themselves as the victims of those racist Republicans. They have been disrespected and are owed an apology.

Then, just in case people don’t buy the racism defense, she adds, “if they can’t figure out how to get it back to policy, we need to call it out.”


Since when have Democrats concerned themselves with policy. Unless you call the unaffordable, unfeasible and nonsensical Green New Deal policy, that is. I call it a socialist power grab.

Democrats haven’t focused on policy since Donald Trump was elected President.

AOC is starting to grate. At a certain point, even Democrats will start looking for a little substance from her. They are going to be disappointed.
