Fox News host Laura Ingraham criticized four newly elected and apparently far left congresswomen Tuesday night for their stances on Israel and white men.
She specifically went after Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley. (RELATED: Students Appear Hesitant To Donate To Ocasio-Cortez’s Apartment Search)
“The anti-Israeli bias of some of these junior congresswoman-elect is downright disturbing. Ocasio-Cortez in July called Israel an occupier of Palestine. I guess she found that on Wikipedia,” Ingraham began. “And when pressed to explain her views, well, you know, it was like uh not pretty.”
She then aired a clip of Ocasio-Cortez’s interview on PBS from July. In the clip, host Margaret Hoover asked her about the claim that Israel occupies Palestine. The Democratic Socialist proceeded to stumble and say she is “not an expert.”
“The two Muslim members of Congress go even further than this, Tlaib endorses a one state solution where Jews have no right to their sovereign state. She said in an interview citing her Palestinian heritage, ‘Separate but equal does not work,'” Ingraham continued. “And in 2014, Omar tweeted ‘Israel has hypnotized the world. May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.'”

“Nice. She recently called Israel, one of our closest allies, an apartheid regime. Now one doubts this is what women had in mind when they voted for these female candidates but you never know. Well then there’s Massachusetts’ Ayanna Pressley. I think she’s my favorite of all of them. She’s a leftist on the warpath against white men,” Ingraham concluded.
