[Ed. – Judge them by the company they keep (doubleheaded arrow)]
Socialist Democratic Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Women’s March co-leader Linda Sarsour were featured speakers at the 16th Annual Universal Muslim Association of America (UMAA) held on July 29, 2018.
Ocasio-Cortez and Sarsour claim they are progressive women and a champion of women’s rights, but the UMAA is anything but progressive:
Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t hide her hatred towards Israel, but fumbled answers on the subject and admitted that she’s “not the expert on geopolitics on this issue.” From The Times of Israel:
“The lens through which I saw this incident, as an activist, as an organizer – if 60 people were killed in Ferguson, Missouri, if 60 people were killed in the South Bronx, unarmed, if 60 people were killed in Puerto Rico – I just look at that [Gaza] incident more through just, as an incident, and to me, it would just be completely unacceptable if that happened on our shores,” she said.
