AOC Disgracefully Applauds Activists Backing Terrorists

via NowThis News on Youtube

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused the Biden administration of enabling “gross human rights violations” in Gaza by sending military aid to Israel and encouraged pro-Palestinian activists to keep pressuring lawmakers to support a cease-fire.

She also emphasized the importance of constituent engagement in influencing lawmakers and noted that the activism has led to increased support for a cease-fire, but also mentioned instances of vandalism and threatening behavior as a result of the heightened tensions.

“Forces that are recipients of U.S. military aid cannot be engaging in gross human rights violations,” Ocasio-Cortez said, citing a set of statutes known as the Leahy law.

“And if they are engaged in gross human rights violations, then that aid must be either pulled, reconsidered, conditioned, etc.”

“What we are witnessing is the gross violation of human rights in Gaza, and that is being done with U.S. military assistance,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

“I don’t think that the American people want to see our public resources going to finance gross human rights violations.”

“I want to also be clear about how powerful that is, constituent engagement.”

“These are not just progressives,” she said. “We have seen representatives from swing seats, that just barely won their seats, are now starting to come out in favor of a cease-fire. So all of this activism is making this a politically tenable and a politically normalized position. So I want to encourage individuals who are, you know, making that call or perhaps if you haven’t made that call yet, to please do so.”
