Author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza appears to be unhappy with New York Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and has labeled her as the “stupidest person elected to public office.”
D’Souza’s message was posted to Twitter and comes after Ocasio-Cortez compared the migrant caravan situation at the border of the United States and Mexico to Jewish people fleeing the horrendous Holocaust.
D’Souza also referenced former Vice President Joe Biden in his message about Ocasio-Cortez, which stated: “Until now I thought Joe Biden was the stupidest person elected to public office. Not anymore!”
D’Souza’s criticism will likely be attacked by her fans, but many would argue that D’Souza has a point given Ocasio-Cortez’s many gaffes and bizarre comments.
“Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime. It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany. It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda. It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria. And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America,” she wrote.
The difference between the migrant caravan situation approaching the American border is that approximately 17 million people lost their lives as a result of the Holocaust.
Ocasio-Cortez does not mention that. She also does not mention that there are over 300 ports of entry for people seeking asylum to enter the United States legally, however many in the migrant caravan have tried to enter illegally, without waiting in line.
Ocasio-Cortez does not mention that many of the migrants have attacked border patrol with rocks, some even carrying other weapons, according to reports.
Here is a video of several men throwing rocks towards border patrol agents. To many, this will not appear to be people fleeing turmoil and seeking asylum, but rather looks to be more of an attack on people who are at work trying to do their job.
Another example of Ocasio-Cortez being criticized is after she Tweeted a screenshot of Fox News and stated, “Oh no! They discovered our vast conspiracy to take care of children and save the planet.”
The screenshot showed some of her socialist ideas such as free healthcare and free college, but also stated to abolish ICE, which is something many people on her side have actually not supported.
Many have supported immigration reform, but not to abolish ICE entirely because they are able to work on removing violent criminals.
Her ideas for “free things” often come with no solution on how to pay for the idea.
