Meet America’s newest Jewish Princess, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Ocasio-Cortez just announced she is of Jewish ancestry. Identity politics at its finest.
“One of the things that we discovered about ourselves is that a very, very long time ago, generations and generations ago, my family consisted of Sephardic Jews,” Ocasio-Cortez said. These are Jews who settled in the Middle East, North Africa, and southern Europe after the Jewish diaspora. They were expelled from Spain in 1492.
She waited for Hanukkah to reveal her family ancestry for obvious reasons. She’s evidently deeply religious and faithful because we all know that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez would never pull a Warren “Look at me! Look at me!” type stunt over just being 1/1,024th Jewish. So she must be at least 1/512th if not more. I’m sure she’ll take the requisite DNA test to prove that she is a Jewish Princess and then rightfully claim her throne, bagel
Ocasio-Cortez, the Democrat Socialist from New York, explained that she discovered her Jewish ancestry by “doing a lot of family trees in the last couple of years”. That is as far as her explanation went. She offered no real “evidence” other than her “doing a lot of family trees”, whatever that was.
We’re not saying she is not a Jewish princess, only that she has never told anyone she was Jewish in her 29 years on planet Earth. She does not attend a synagogue, or at least nobody reports seeing her attend services at one recently.
On a recent CNN
interviewAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez was asked what she thought about the occupation of Palestine.
She responded: “And what is Palestine?”
The story of the Jews of Spain and Portugal being forced to either convert to Christianity or they would be expelled from the Iberian Peninsula is well documented. This was over 500 years ago, and their descendants are now numbered at about 65 million in Latin America.
So could Ocasio-Cortez be a Jewish princess? Of course, she could be. In our new age of self-awareness and political correctness, just the mere fact that she thinks she might be Jewish is enough for her to declare that she is Jewish and to run for political office in Israel.
If you’re a man, and you want to be a woman, not a problem. You simply declare you “are a woman” and the world must accept you as such without reservation. So Ocasio-Cortez can be anything she wants to be by declaration using this standard. She can be a jet airplane, a tree, a toy boat, or a fire engine also if she wishes. It’s her choice.
The Rule of Warren.
Elizabeth Warren said, “I believe my Native American ancestry added important diversity to Harvard Law”. At this time she was claiming to be 1/32nd Cherokee Indian. Now that the proof is in, she might have “Indian” blood according to DNA results. She is possibly 1/1024th Indian, and those are Indians in South America, not North America
What is bothersome with this entire story and scenario is how the Democrats have so compartmentalized us, that we can now ascertain and claim our heritage by being “only” 1/1024th of any one religion, culture, race, etc. out of our entire genetic makeup. We divide ourselves so much, that we have no identity as a nation, a culture, a people.
You can be 99% white Eastern European Catholic and Irish ancestry and still legally claim to be a proud black man from Borneo and Siberia using the Rule of Warren.
