Ocasio-Cortez raises eyebrows after comparing Trump's border wall to Berlin Wall

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raised eyebrows after comparing President Trump’s border wall plans to the Berlin Wall separating communist Germany from the free world.

The New York Democrat made her remarks during a livestream for supporters on Friday, where she spoke out about the scrutiny she received ever since she won the election last year and dethroned top Democrat Joe Crowley.

“No matter how you feel about the wall, I think it’s a moral abomination,” Ocasio-Cortez said on the issue of the border wall that Trump has been pushing for since getting into office.

“I think it’s like the Berlin Wall. I think it’s like any other wall designed to separate human beings and block out people who are running away from the humanitarian disasters. I just think it’s wrong,” she added.

Day by day she solidifies her lead as Village Idiot, although the rest of the SocialistDemocrat pack are not far behind.

For younger readers, in 1961 communist East Germany built a concrete wall to separate its section of the divided city of Berlin in order to keep its citizens from escaping to freedom in West Berlin and West Germany. The wall was topped with wire and guardposts and those trying to escape were routinely gunned down. The rest of the East German border also had guarded borders and a shoot-to-kill scenario.

Occasional Cortex completely misses the prime distinction: E. Germany built their wall to keep its citizens from escaping to free West Germany. Our planned wall is to keep illegal immigrants from storming our country.

It is a shorter walk for each of them to our embassy or consulate in their native country to apply legally to immigrate. If their application is granted, we welcome them with open arms and multiple opportunities.

Of course Occasional Cortex now has a luxury building residence in DC; wanna bet there's a doorman and locked doors there?
