Fox News reported New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared on an Anti-Semitic podcast back in may. The host of this podcast is Puerto Rican activist Rafael Tirado Rivera who is known to take very extreme anti-Jewish stances. Rivera once said Jews “should get the f*** out of Palestine.”
Ocasio-Cortez appeared on this podcast before the had the upset victory against incumbent Joe Crowley. She was able to win by being as far to the left as Communists Lenin and Stalin while also being anti Israel herself.
Fox News reported back in 2010 Rivera tweeted his support for White House correspondent Helen Thomas.
“I stand behind Helen Thomas’ comments on Jews. They should get the f— out of Palestine,” he tweeted in 2010.
Thomas was forced out of her position for being recorded going on Anti-Semitic rant which the The Jewish Anti-Defamation League condemned Thomas’ remarks.
Rivera doubled down his views on Jews in “Palestine,” with another tweet, “Nobody in Israel’s politics is going to even suggest that. But Jews should leave!”
Fox News also pointed out, Rivera has called Israel a terrorist state and has implied Israel is practicing apartheid with its treatment of Arab minorities.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez being so willing to be promoted by a person that disdains Jewish people the way Rivera does is disturbing. The left is getting more radical by the day and already embrace Hitler’s Socialist policies, but if they embrace his hatred for Jewish people as well things could get really nasty fast.
