Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reveals Jewish ancestry at Hanukkah celebration
By Isaac Stanley-Becker
December 10 at 6:33 AM

Hanukkah celebrates the miracle that oil thought to be enough for only one day burned instead for eight. So the Jewish festival of lights is also, in a way, a celebration of surprise.

A temple in Queens got a small dose of surprise on Sunday — the final night of Hanukkah — when Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat with a knack for dramatic flourish, told those gathered to light the menorah that her ancestors were Jewish.

“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. ...

I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.

Elizabeth Warren II: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Now Claiming Jewish Ancestry

Also a political movement that goes nuts over white kids wearing sombreros is really casual about lefties falsely claiming to be Indian and Jewish.

Cortez is the daughter of an architect from Westchester who claimed to be the girl from the Bronx. She had plenty of cash, but claimed to be unable to afford a D.C. apartment. And she wants to run for president, but knows less about civics than most first graders.

So why not?

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is anti-Israel, but is claiming Jewish ancestry at an event by a radical leftist hate group that has defended anti-Semites.  ... Blunt Force Truth

However, it is not unusual to be Jewish and anti-Israel.  Anyway, I wonder if this will change the dynamic between her and the muslim bitches that are incoming.

Nacho O'Rourke, Shawn King, Lizzy Warren, Nkechi Amare Diallo, and now The Space Cadet.

Is their anything a liberal socialist will not try to claim they are not?  Well besides white that is.

   AOC waiting until Hanukkah to reveal her Jewish ancestry is oddly similar to Hillary Clinton waiting until she's on a Hip Hop radio station to profess her love for hot sauce.

It’s like lib white women that are against school choice who say, “I’m not racist because I have a black friend.” Now the Muslim bitches can say, “I’m not anti-Semitic because I have a Jewish friend.”

I do not support or agree with her in any way, but what she said is totally correct. The fact that she used the term Sephardic Jew vs. Ashkenazi Jew is telling. A gentile would not know this distinction. I'm not sold, but am intrigued by her claim.

As far as all the super-racist homophobic Muzzie Democrats, she didn't make any friends. Or maybe she did. I don't know what the hell is going on anymore? The situation has become so confused, nobody knows anything today.

For example, so many gay people who violently support Muslims, who kill gay people. It is mind boggling? I don't know. Reality in America today is confusing as hell.

How incredibly convenient!

And, I'm a gentile and I know the difference between Shephardi and Ashkenazi.

It is kind of amusing.  Sort of like I'm a doctor and a lawyer...and I own this bar.

I'm a Catholic and a Methodist and Jewish...whatever.

Really? How did you happen to come upon this information? If you don't mind me asking?

'Sepharad' is the original name of Spain, in the way, way, back machine. But in modern terms it is used to describe any Jew who is not a snow White Scandinavian from North Europe. Sons of Esau.

Italians and all kinds of people are called Sephardic (or 'Black' in the language) who have nothing to do with Spain, at all.

I just don't remember how I know.  My mind is full of generally useless information.  Like @truth_seeker, I am fascinated by DNA studies, but I have known about Sephardic vs. Askenazi for a long time.   And, mad cow and Tay Sachs.  Moors in Spain and all the way to Holland.  Marranos.  Ethiopia Jews and the Ark of the Covenant.   :shrug:

It's not totally unheard of.  I worked with a woman born in Cuba who is Sephardic Jew.  Many Sephardic Jews came to the new world as conquistadors and ended up settling in the Rio Grand Valley.  They have long ago assimilated as Roman Catholic, but they butcher their animals in the kosher way and have menorahs that have been passed on through the generations as a family heirloom.

You want to know the difference between Sephardic and Ashkenazi
Just ask them to read one line of Torah
If that does not tell you, then you don't need to know. And wouldn't know anyway.

Nope. Not touching it.

This is a trap. She's hoping someone will call her out on it, claim she's misrepresented and that the accuser is racist/sexist/anti-Semitic/repressing some evil character trait from their childhood. That's how she rolls.
