Good ol’ Sandy Cortez. Oops, I mean Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Remember when she claimed that Israel was an occupying military force on the West Bank as well as an “apartheid state.”
When asked to further elaborate on her claims, she back peddled with “I am not the expert on geopolitics on this issue.”
Interestingly enough, when the beer wench turned congressthing graduated from Boston University, she not only majored in International Relations, she also graduated cum laude (with honors).
So much for her alleged expertise in global politics.
Anyhow, Fox News is reporting that Sandy is getting blasted from the political left for a job fair along with fellow Neo-Communist Adriano Espaillat (D-NY).
Her sin? Representatives (recruiters) of all of three military service academies were present for the soon to be graduating high school seniors;
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is firing back at “rumors” from left-wing activists that she is hosting a high school military recruitment fair, claiming on Instagram that “large accounts” were making up lies about a recent event whose guests included military personnel from service academies.
Ocasio-Cortez co-hosted a “students service fair” with Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y., Monday for high schoolers in the Bronx to “learn about the resources available to students” through the district office and connect them with service academies, according to a flyer for the event.
“Politics is so crazy because people can just wake up and make up whatever they want to say about you,” Ocasio-Cortez said on her Instagram account Monday evening. “Today, someone made up a rumor that I, me, was hosting a military recruitment fair for high schoolers. Does that sound like something I would do? No… But Somebody started a rumor that that’s what was going on. Everyone just believed it and accepted it. And the problem is when large accounts start platforming this, then is starts spreading like a wildfire and results in demands to cancel this event or for me to not show up to it.”
But wait, there’s more.
“Hey @AOC what’s up with this? This is frickin’ gross. You were sent to DC to fight against imperialism & fight for the poor & working class, NOT THE WAR MACHINE! What are you doing? Stop it,” one user, who identify in their bio as an eco-socialist, wrote alongside a photo of the event flier.
✨✨Join me and @repaoc for our Student Service Fair on March 20th, from 4-6:00 pm at The Bronx Renaissance High School.
As summer fast approaches, learn more about all the valuable resources available to students through our district offices.

.@AOC Why are you hosting a military recruitment event at a school in your district 1) on the 20th anniv. of a war you claim to have opposed 2) after fighting AGAINST military recruitment at schools?
Was it only b/c Trump was POTUS (& pre-wholesale wokeification of US military)? https://t.co/Sjff17bJMu

So it appears @AOC was attacked by her own for allegedly having a “Military Recruitment Fair” at a local HS causing her to run to IG. The clarification on her congressional HS opportunity fair did nothing more than highlight her utter ignorance on this Nations Service Academies pic.twitter.com/YUW2jABQtl
