Admitted Democrat socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has opened her mouth and put both feet in again.
This time, she compared President Donald Trump’s border wall as being the same as the Berlin Wall, revealing her complete ignorance of history.
The Berlin Wall was built by communists to keep the FREE world out and keep their captive residents from escaping to free West Berlin.
Trump’s border wall is to be built by a FREE nation to keep illegal aliens, criminals, gang members, terrorists and drug dealers OUT, and has nothing to do with keeping free people in.
Fox News – Ocasio-Cortez raises eyebrows after comparing Trump’s border wall to Berlin Wall – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raised eyebrows after comparing President Trump’s border wall plans to the Berlin Wall separating communist Germany from the free world.
The New York Democrat made her remarks during a livestream for supporters on Friday, where she spoke out about the scrutiny she received ever since she won the election last year and dethroned top Democrat Joe Crowley.
“No matter how you feel about the wall, I think it’s a moral abomination,” Ocasio-Cortez said on the issue of the border wall that Trump has been pushing for since getting into office.
“I think it’s like the Berlin Wall. I think it’s like any other wall designed to separate human beings and block out people who are running away from the humanitarian disasters. I just think it’s wrong,” she added…
I knew a family that operated a bakery in East Berlin, but one of the three brothers who owned and worked the bakery, lived just half a mile away in West Berlin.
The night the Berlin Wall went up, East Germany police and military would not allow the brother to return to his home.
When he tried to escape, the communists caught him and imprisoned him for a number of years, while his wife and three kids continued to live free in West Berlin.
By the time the Berlin Wall came down, his kids were grown with kids of his own as he missed 28 years of their lives because of communists like Ocasio-Cortez.
