AOC Responds to Accusations She’s Spreading Iranian Propaganda By Blaming 'Racism'
Rep. John Rutherford (R-FL) calls out Democrats for being Ayatollah sympathizers
Progressive Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded to accusations by a member of congress, that she and her fellow cohorts are spreading Iranian propaganda and being Ayatollah sympathizers, by crying “racism."
Rep. John Rutherford (R-FL) called out far-left Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) for falsely calling the drone strike on Qasem Soleimani an “assassination.”
“President Trump recklessly assassinated Qasem Soleimani,” Jayapal falsely claimed.
“He had no evidence of an imminent threat or attack.”
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) told The Daily Wire that U.S. officials withheld sensitive information about the U.S. military operation from members of Congress because they were concerned that certain members would leak the information to the media.
Rutherford responded to Jayapal’s comments on Twitter:
"I was in the same briefing as you, @RepJayapal, and this is absolutely false. You and your squad of Ayatollah sympathizers are spreading propaganda that divides our nation and strengthens our enemies. #Iran”
“I find it highly amusing that my coworkers angrily yell stuff like this and then clutch their pearls and cry when they are called out for their racism.”
“It’s honestly pretty simple. @realDonaldTrump eliminated a dangerous terrorist. If you don’t want to be called an Ayatollah sympathizer, don’t sympathize with the Ayatollah.”
Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) noted:
“The dead soldiers at the hands of the Ayatollah & #Soleimani are of every race, religion & socioeconomic background. This isn’t about race. It’s about justice for 100s of Gold Star families & ensuring there are no more deaths at the hands of a terrorist & human rights abuser.”
Despite almost all of AOC's Democrat colleagues using Trump's strike on Soleimani to attack his administration, they acknowledged the fact Soleimani was an evil monster.

But Ocasio-Cortez refused to accept facts, instead attacked Trump for killing a terrorist who was responsible for murdering hundreds of American soldiers.
On Monday, far-left "Squad" members pounced on the opportunity to denounce President Trump's warning to Iran about possible retaliation for killing Iranian terrorist General Qassem Soleimani.
Ocasio-Cortez answered by accusing her president of committing "a war crime."
"This is a war crime," Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.
"Threatening to target and kill innocent families, women and children -- which is what you’re doing by targeting cultural sites - does not make you a ‘tough guy,’ It does not make you ‘strategic.’ It makes you a monster.”
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) accused Trump of "threatening to commit war crimes."
"God help us all!" she added.
Former Vice President Joe Biden accused the president of "irrational" behavior.“
"The more the walls close in on this guy, the more irrational he becomes,” Biden wrote.
