Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) accused governors Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis of committing “crimes against humanity” by sending illegal immigrants to deep blue sanctuary cities.

Which says a lot about those locations.

The New York socialist sent out a series of tweets in which she blasted DeSantis and Abbott for their tactics in dealing with illegal immigrants by shipping them out of their respective states of Texas and Florida.

“It’s appalling that far-right politicians seem to have decided that fall before an election is their regularly scheduled time to commit crimes against humanity on refugees,” she tweeted late last week.

What’s truly appalling is that there is no level of hyperbole the former bartender is unwilling to use in order to believe she’s making a point. Reducing the seriousness of actual people who commit actual crimes against humanity.

AOC Says DeSantis, Abbott Guilty of ‘Crimes Against Humanity’

Ocasio-Cortez also accused Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Texas Governor Greg Abbott of “trafficking people” to get “clicks.”

AOC said that, completely oblivious to the irony that she uses and abuses phrases like ‘crimes against humanity’ and ‘trafficking’ as a way to get social media clout from progressives.

Ocasio-Cortez’s comments also demonstrate there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between the extreme elements of her party and the mainstream.

California governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat considered as a viable presidential option should Joe Biden not run in 2024, also ramped up the dumbed-down rhetoric by writing a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland suggesting he pursue “kidnapping” charges against DeSantis for flying illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard.

Martha’s Vineyard Removed Them in a Flash

In further embarrassing comments, AOC praised rich, white progressives on Martha’s Vineyard for their response to the influx of just a few dozen illegal immigrants, saying her party “understand(s) that immigrants and refugees are a blessing.”

DeSantis sent two planes full of illegal immigrants to the island last week, prompting officials there to declare the relatively small number to be an “unexpected urgent humanitarian situation.”

Contrary to AOC’s assertion, they weren’t considered a blessing of any sort and were quickly removed from the island by the Massachusetts National Guard to a military base within 48 hours.

When DeSantis flew them to an affluent playground for the rich and famous, it was a ‘crime against humanity.’ When the rich people ship them the hell off their island, it’s a demonstration that liberals find them to be a ‘blessing.’

Sure thing.

Back in the day – BB, or Before Biden – AOC would have equated moving illegal immigrants to a military base to sending them to “concentration camps.”

Wonder what is different this time around?
