Also a political movement that goes nuts over white kids wearing sombreros is really casual about lefties falsely claiming to be Indian and Jewish.
Cortez is the daughter of an architect from Westchester who claimed to be the girl from the Bronx. She had plenty of cash, but claimed to be unable to afford a D.C. apartment. And she wants to run for president, but knows less about civics than most first graders.
So why not?
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is anti-Israel, but is claiming Jewish ancestry at an event by a radical leftist hate group that has defended anti-Semites.
In a speech at an event celebrating the eighth and final night of Hanukkah, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of 435 members of the incoming US House of Representative, shared that members of her family were Sephardic Jews who were forced to flee to Puerto Rico during the Spanish Inquisition.
Ocasio-Cortez shared her family's past at a Hannukah celebration she held together with the Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JREJ) earlier this evening, and thanked the organization on her social media account for assembling the 'festivities.'
Julia Salazar, an anti-Semitic Cortez pal, got away with claiming to be Jewish. So Cortez is following suit.
What's the basis for this claim? That Warren/Salazar classic, family stories.
Maybe she can do a DNA reveal, Elizabeth Warren style.
The newly elected congresswoman of New York told a gasping crowd, "That a very long time ago, generations and generations ago, my family consisted of Sephardic Jews."
Also she was raised a poor black boy in the South.
