Ocasio-Cortez invoked the Holocaust while defending Ilhan Omar's disturbing comments on the 9/11 attacks

In leaping to the defense of her fellow Democrat, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), over her recent "some people did something" remarks about 9/11, radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) invoked the Holocaust and compared President Donald Trump to Hitler.

On Friday, socialist Ocasio-Cortez blasted Trump for calling out Omar over her comments, suggesting that the president represents "dangerous incitement."

“Members of Congress have a duty to respond to the President’s explicit attack today,” the Democratic New York lawmaker tweeted.

@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."

Ocasio-Cortez added: "'First they came...'"

AOC shared a poem written by a Lutheran pastor — and early Nazi supporter — Martin Niemöller, who was later imprisoned for speaking out against Hitler.

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.

The post by Ocasio-Cortez was in response to a video shared just hours earlier by President Trump, which contrasted Omar’s recent comments with footage of the 9/11 terror attacks.

"WE WILL NEVER FORGET!" Trump captioned the video.

The video shows the controversial congresswoman lamenting what she claimed was the poor treatment of Muslims in America after the 9/11 attacks, which she describes as, when “some people did something.”

According to the Daily Wire, Ocasio-Cortez's tweet elicited a strong reaction online from many across the political spectrum.

Imam Mohamad Tawhidi tweeted: "Here are the two facts that you missed:

"1. The President expressing himself saying that he will 'never forget' the victims of 9/11 is not an 'attack', it’s exactly what’s expected from him.

"2. Her life is not in danger. In fact, her association with CAIR puts the U.S in danger."

David Harsanyi tweeted: "This is just a shameful attempt to chill speech.

"It belittles both the real victims of 9/11 and the Holocaust."

Jim Hanson tweeted: "He called her out for her atrocious 9/11 comment Is she somehow immune from criticism?

"How many massively more inflammatory things have you & your crew said about @realDonaldTrump ?

"And a Holocaust reference puts you in the same (low) class as #IlhanOmar"

Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro tweeted: "That many in the media will parrot this 'speech is violence' codswallop is a demonstration how little they care about protecting speech when the speech is criticism of the Left.

"And there’s something deeply disturbing about AOC making Holocaust references to defend an open and unrepentant anti-Semite who is merely being criticized"

Popular conservative Twitter account AG Conservative tweeted: "Unbelievable.

"She is comparing Trump posting a video quoting Omar's own words to the Holocaust.

"Despicable and incredibly offensive, especially to those of us whose families were actually impacted by those words."

Omar has faced a decent amount of backlash for her recent 9/11 comments and for other remarks that appear to make light of terrorism or were considered anti-Semitic.
