It’s really rich when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the champion of Socialism, calls the president’s border wall “an abomination,” adding that it is just like the “Berlin wall.” Of course, the Berlin wall was built by and for Communists who are on the same track as Socialists. Well, the former bartender was really made to regret her ridiculous words. You’ll love this.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just caused a ruckus on social media. She shocked Americans as the self-professed socialist thought that the East Germans built the Berlin Wall to keep the capitalists out. We can’t make up this stuff, folks.
“No matter how you feel about the wall, I think it’s a moral abomination. I think it’s like the Berlin wall,” said the 29-year-old Congresswoman.

“The only way anyone could assert this with a straight face, let alone with the smug dismissal Ocasio-Cortez displays here, is to be entirely ignorant of the post-war history of Berlin, Germany, and the deep desire to flee the communist system in both,” Hot Air reports.
For those who need a refresher course, after World War II, Germany was split in two. East Germany was held by the Soviets behind the “iron curtain.” West Germany became a free democratic state. The Berlin wall split the country in half. Many on the East German side died on the Berlin wall as they tried to escape to West Germany.
“The Berlin Wall’s ‘moral abomination’ came from its intent to trap people inside a communist system when they wanted to flee — at which it largely succeeded for its 28-year lifespan. East Germany arrested more than 5,000 people attempting to cross over it into West Berlin and freedom, and they shot and killed at least 191 people in the attempt. Only 5,000 crossed over into freedom during its three-decade abomination. They didn’t care a whit if anyone wanted to enter East Berlin,” Ed Morrissey reported via Hot Air.
Isn’t it about time someone in Washington, D.C. calls for Ocasio-Cortez to step down? The Democrats are really a bunch of leftist losers and were skillfully summed up by actor James Woods in one viral tweet which refers to Justin Smollett’s faking an attack by MAGA supporters. He also includes AOC and her “Green New Deal,” Pocohantas Warren, Kamala Harris, Rep. Ilhan Omar and many more Democrats:
Nigerians and fake nooses, MAGA hats and a #CraftyBeaver. #CowFarts and trains to Hawaii. A lying Senator saying she’s a Cherokee. A #HeelsUp Senator sleeping her way to the bottom. Congresswoman married her own brother? Governor in a KKK robe. Ah, #Democrats!!! Gotta love ‘em!

Well, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Matt Mayer explains why comparisons between Trump’s wall and the Berlin Wall are nonsensical and insulting for those oppressed in East Germany. “Too often, Americans use the Berlin Wall in the debate over expanding the wall on our border with Mexico,” Mayer said. “Not only does this usage cheapen the history of the Berlin Wall, it is a terrible analogy.”
“The goal of America’s border wall is to keep people and contraband from illegally coming in to the United States, not to prevent Americans from escaping. Unlike with the Berlin Wall, the use of force on the border is significantly restricted by law, including when engaging with violent and well-armed Mexican drug cartels,” Mayer concluded.
Well, AOC has all her facts wrong. The former bartender also claims 70% of Americans don’t want the wall. This is just a bald-faced lie.
“Let’s say you love the wall, let’s say you want it, point is, it’s wrong to hold people’s paychecks hostage for it and if you want your wall so bad, go out and convince the American people because 70% of America thinks this is the dumbest idea ever and it’s not my problem that the majority of the American public thinks it’s a scam, a sham, a monument to white supremacy,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “It’s not my fault, not my fault.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s assertion that 70% of America thinks that a border wall is “the dumbest idea ever,” is factually false. Ocasio-Cortez is most likely referring to a January 2019 report from PEW Research which stated that 70% of Democrats say that a wall “would not have much impact on illegal immigration into the U.S.”
The Democrats say AOC is one of their new rising stars. And sadly, many low information voters think she is really smart. It’s time we expose her words, her lies, and her lack of education to all Americans. It’s the only way to make sure the Congresswoman goes back to bartending for good.
