Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, who lied about where she was on January 6 in order to ramp up a story of victimhood, is now arguing being on the U.S. Capitol grounds the day of the riot is equal to “serving in war.”
“Speaking to the weekly public radio show Latino USA on Friday, Ms Ocasio-Cortez said members of Congress effectively ‘served in war’ during the traumatising event that had “deeply affected lawmaking” and impacted the legislative process,” the Independent reports.
Former U.S. Army Green Beret and Congressman Michael Waltz has taken notice and is blasting his colleague for the comparison.
Don’t use false equivalencies to make a point. Especially as it relates to war.
