Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the prime example of why you should think before you speak. Tweet. Text. Whatever your vehicle of communication might be. Exhibit Q in the case of her cerebral inadequacy is this tweet, wherein she compared the migrant caravan members to Jews fleeing the Holocaust.
New York Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday compared members of the migrant caravan attempting to enter the United States to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.
Members of the caravan on Sunday rushed the border at the San Ysidro port of entry, which connects Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego, California.
U.S. Customs and Border Patrol closed the port of entry in response and reportedly used tear gas to disperse the crowd of migrants.
Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to denounce the treatment of the caravan members.
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. https://t.co/qhv7Rr1itn

It’s true applying for asylum is not illegal, provided the asylum seekers go through the lawful process. You know what isn’t the lawful process. Storming the fence and hurling stones in the direction of the the po-po. Those things very much cross the criminal line.
Another thing. The migrants already escaped Honduras and made it all the way to Mexico. Unless there’s a Honduran Holocaust going down in Tijuana, methinks they’re out of harm’s way. Yet, I don’t see them waving a mission accomplished flag and setting up shop in Juarez. Something tells me there’s an ulterior motive at play here.
It’s funny how people think Trump should lose his Twitter privileges. Yet, Alexa Occasional-Cervix can’t go 24 hours without making America shed a collective IQ point. If she were a Republican, Alex’s bi-daily boo-boos would make for a nightly segment on Colbert. Alas, the “D” after her name gives her immunity from mainstream mockery. Though, we’ll happily fill that void.
Cortez has a lot to learn if she wants to be at the forefront of her “chamber” of government. As long as she refuses to get herself some education, we’re more than happy to get chuckles at her expense.
