Liz Cheney

As I wrote Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) set herself up for a brutal reality check after she tweeted that Israel’s decision to bar her Congressional Squad pals Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was an example of “bigotry” and an implied desire for the country to ban Muslims.

To recap, here are the reasons Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave for rejecting Omar’s and Tlaib’s request to visit Israel:

They were entirely valid reasons, of course, based on what we know of both Omar’s and Tlaib’s anti-Semitic history. But to AOC, it was not just a slight against persons of color – it also had to do with the fact that Omar and Tlaib were women. Here’s what she tweeted:

Rep. Liz Cheney (WY) has, since Day One, been unafraid to take various Squad members to task for their falsehoods, recklessness, and outright stupidity. AOC’s Thursday tweet was one of those instances where Cheney had heard enough.

Here’s how Cheney responded to Ocasio-Cortez’s claims:

The Squad’s frequent use of the “WOC” card is well-known and has been called out often by numerous Republican members of Congress including Cheney and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (TX).

It may seem tiresome to keep pointing it out, but it’s important that Republicans continue to do so, if for no other reason than to expose the fraudulent image she’s painted of herself as some fierce feminist superhero able to leap tall buildings and slay any contrarian argument in a single bound.
