Evil rests among Republicans

Alexandria Ocasio, D-N.Y. got it right on two fronts. She criticized the Democratic House leadership for not punishing Lauren Boebert, Rep-R-Colo. over her repeated Islamophobic remarks targeting Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. Boebert has also suggested that Omar was a member of the “jihad squad,” which includes Rep. Ocasio.

Such rhetoric has no place in the Congress of the United States. Indeed the Democratic house leadership should severely punish Boebert. With the full support of all Republicans serving in the Peoples House of Representatives.

Secondly, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez echoed the sentiments of the nations first President George Washington. Who declared the following in 1783 while in Ireland. The President described the goodness of America by saying, “The bosom of America is open to receive not only the Opulent and respectable Stranger, but the oppressed and prosecuted of all Nations and Religions; whom we shall welcome to a participation in all of our rights and privileges, if by decency and propriety of conduct appear to merit the enjoyment.”
