When Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in the headlines it is never a good sign for Democrats.
That’s especially true when Israel – and the rising tide of anti-Semitism – is the focus.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just heard two words that are bad news for Democrats.
Florida Congressman Michael Waltz declared on Fox News that the Ocasio-Cortez “Squad” should now be called the “Hamas Caucus” for their embrace of the terrorist group’s propaganda.
As a Green Beret, I fought alongside our allies against terrorism. Never did I ever think I would serve in Congress with the Hamas Caucus who's defending terrorist attacks on our greatest ally in the Middle East, Israel. pic.twitter.com/89DkGTwB5h

Members of the “Squad” like Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez and Cori Bush have made anti-Semitic comments such as calling Israel defending itself against Hamas, “terrorism,” calling Israel an “apartheid state,” and expressed sympathy for the terrorist group Hamas.
These comments come against a backdrop of a rise in anti-Semitic attacks in Democrat-run cities.
Joe Biden voters and pro-Palestinian goons are attacking innocent Jewish people in the streets and the rhetoric coming from the most high-profile members of the “Squad” is not lowering the temperature.
Instead, critics contend that the “Squad” is creating a permission structure for rampaging mobs to attack Jews by falsely claiming that Israel is a racist, oppressor nation.
Nancy Pelosi tolerates this anti-Semitic rhetoric because she is afraid of backlash from the Democrat base ahead of the 2022 midterms.
But some members of Congress are not willing to sit idly by and let the “Squad” gin up anti-Semitic hatred in America.
