AOC Cites Holocaust as She Accuses Pres. Trump of Putting Life of Ilhan Omar in Danger Over Criticism of Her 9/11 ‘Some People Did Something’ Comment

Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) cited the Holocaust to defend anti-Semitic Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after President Donald Trump posted a scathing video that juxtaposed images of the September 11, 2001 Islamist terror attacks on the U.S. with Omar’s dismissive comment about 9/11, “Some people did something.”

In a tweet posted Friday night, Ocasio-Cortez accused Trump of putting Omar’s life in danger and posted a photo of the famous World War II poem by Martin Niemoller, “Members of Congress have a duty to respond to the President’s explicit attack today. @IlhanMN’s life is in danger. For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, dangerous targeting of a member of Congress. We must speak out. “First they came…”

 

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
