Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has made quite a name for herself as the leading radical socialist in Congress behind Bernie Sanders.
The newly-elected congresswoman is even driving major parts of the Democratic agenda.
But she made a big mistake when she decided to take on one of the most admired Christians in America.
In what Ocasio-Cortez clearly thought was going to be a “gotcha” moment, she shared a quote from Liberty University President, Jerry Falwell Jr. with him stating, “I always thought that if more good people had concealed carry permits, then we could end these Muslims before they [unintelligible.]

Ocasio-Cortez retweeted the video of Falwell Jr. stating that he said the remarks at CPAC, “the conference attended by the President and members, to 1000s.”
“I always thought that if more good people had concealed carry permits,then we could end these Muslims before they [unintelligible].”
This was just this weekend at CPAC, the conference attended by the President and members, to 1000s.
Where’s the resolution against Islamophobia? https://t.co/eXA9F1fezI

The problem? Jerry Falwell said this three years ago, a day after the San Bernardino shooting where 14 innocent Americans were slaughtered in cold blood by radical Islamic terrorists.
But Ocasio-Cortez has proven to be one who plays loose with the facts.
Everyone knows Falwell Jr. was specifically talking about an armed populace being the best deterrent to thwart mass shootings.
His reference to Muslims referred to the extremists who carried out the savage attack.
Ocasio-Cortez didn’t care about any of it.
She was locked, loaded, and ready to lie about Jerry Falwell Jr. in this vicious smear because she desperately wants to vilify Christians as “Islamophobic.”
But Falwell Jr. — being the outspoken Christian he is, refused to kowtow to liberals or apologize for his Christian-conservative beliefs — hit back twice as hard, tweeting:
I thought @AOC was just dumb but she is a liar too. She claims this was @CPAC last week when it was actually in 2015 the day after the deadly CA attacks by radical Muslims (“those” Muslims I referenced) She also deleted the last part of my quote “before they walk in and kill us”. https://t.co/lIw4V4BaVj

Ocasio-Cortez has made it abundantly clear she doesn’t care about the truth.
She just cares about ridiculing a white man of Christian faith to make her point, no matter the cost.
If Ocasio-Cortez continues using her position in government to spread lies, should she be removed from office?
