Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is self-destructing today. After she was hit with an FEC investigation involving the alleged dubious dealings by her campaign transferring almost $1 million into slush funds, she now is saying the United States should not have used force against the 9/11 terrorists. The former bartender went as far as to say that the war in  Afghanistan was a “mistake” and that “non-intervention” with the Islamic terrorists was the answer. Well, she instantly got destroyed.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is imploding her political career right before our eyes. Late Monday she was hit with an FEC investigation, and it’s looking rather bleak. AOC’s attorneys probably put a gag order on her to refrain from commenting on the shocking charges, so the 29-year-old Congresswoman decided to defend her good buddy Rep. Ilhan Omar.

“Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) made radical statements Monday night on Twitter, suggesting that the United States should not have authorized the use of force against those who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks — the deadliest terrorist attack in world history,” the Daily Wire reported.

It all started when AOC defended Omar’s anti-Semitic remarks which were questioned by Rep. Juan Vargas (D-CA.)

“It is disturbing that Rep. Omar continues to perpetuate hurtful anti-Semitic stereotypes that misrepresent our Jewish community. Additionally, questioning support for the U.S.-Israel relationship is unacceptable,” Democrat Rep. Juan Vargas (CA) tweeted. “Israel has and remains a stalwart ally of the United States because of our countries’ shared interests and values. I condemn her remarks and believe she should apologize for her offensive comments.”

Ocasio-Cortez responded in a dishonest manner, suggesting that Vargas was calling out Omar’s foreign policy stances, not her anti-Semitism.

“I‘m curious if Rep. Vargas will further explain his stance here that it’s unacceptable to even *question* US foreign policy,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Plenty of Dem members have asserted that discussion + debate on this issue is fair and merited. Is this stance a departure from that?”

Heres’ where the Democratic darling gets into hot water over “use of force” against the 9/11 terrorists. AOC is saying after 9/11 there should not have been a military response:

“I remember a time when it was ‘unacceptable’ to question the Iraq War. All of Congress was wrong, including both GOP & Dem Party, and led my generation into a disastrous + wrong war that virtually all would come to regret, except for the one member who stood up: Barbara Lee.”

After being called out for the tweet’s inaccuracies, Ocasio-Cortez clarified that she meant the Afghanistan war, and added: “(But honestly we shouldn’t have been in either, and we should end the AUMF now while we’re at it).” Note: AUMF stands for Authorization to Use Military Force.

The Hill noted that the AUMF “authorizes the president ‘to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons’— in other words, al Qaeda and the Taliban regime in Afghanistan.”

Almost 3,000 people were killed during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which triggered major U.S. initiatives to combat terrorism and defined the presidency of George W. Bush, reports Yet, for the bartender from New York, any use of force, or military intervention was not warranted.

Well, as you can imagine, Americans were livid. “OMG you are against use of force against terrorists in response to the 9/11 attacks! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? You do know that’s what the AUMF is right? #2020 #supportourtroops #LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder,” tweeted Johnny Clash.

“@AOC you are the most Un-American congressman than I know. You are letting the Liberal Hierarchy control your every move, put the words in your mouth that make you sound absurd, and a disgrace to women. 9/11 was horrific and as I stood next to my mother we watched them fall!” posted Twitter user “TexasRepProud.”

“We don’t criticize you for being a woman. In fact that is your most redeeming qualities, darling. We just criticize the socialism and (now) the blatant antisemitism. You also said you wouldn’t have authorized force after 9/11 which is just another gaffe showing your immaturity,” tweeted Twitter user “Gob Abierto.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the Democratic gift that just keeps on giving. And it’s sure looking like the New York Congresswoman has thrown all caution to the wind as she makes gaffe after gaffe that she can never recover from.

If there was one thing in the last 50 years that pulled all Americans together, it was the 9/11 attacks. Post 9/11, no longer was there the infighting of Republicans and Democrats. When former President George Bush stood at Ground Zero and the crowd said, “I can’t hear you.”

He responded, “I can hear you! I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!” The crowd erupted chanting, “USA USA!”

To say the most powerful nation on earth would sit idly by and not respond to the biggest attack on US soil since Pearl Harbor is beyond idiotic. The former head of Greenpeace called AOC “an arrogant little prick,” and we couldn’t agree more. Ocasio-Cortez never had any business running for office, and now we will watch as the “arrogant little prick” self-destructs before our very eyes.
