Ocasio-Cortez blasted the President for calling out Omar over her disgusting 9/11 comments, suggesting that a tweet of his about Omar and 9/11 represents “dangerous incitement” and a threat to her life.
Daily Wire Ocasio-Cortez added: “‘First they came…'”
The quote, “First they came…” comes from a quote of prominent Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller, who described how people’s inaction toward Adolf Hitler led to the Holocaust. The famous quote is featured at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, which Ocasio-Cortez included a picture of in her tweet.
Earlier, AOC said this:
Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet came in response to Trump tweeting out a video on Friday afternoon that showed Omar describing the 9/11 terror attacks as “some people did something,” and also included the tragic images from the attacks of that day.
