Ohio GOP group’s fundraising email insanely calls Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a ‘domestic terrorist’

Published

on

The Ohio chapter of the College Republican National Committee is under fire for a fundraising email that labels freshman Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York a “domestic terrorist.”

“AOC is a domestic terrorist,” the subject line reads, according to screenshots posted to Twitter from a reporter for the nonprofit Center for Public Integrity. Dave Levinthal is the investigative reporting group’s federal politics editor and senior reporter.

“My fellow students often tell me that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a ‘role model’ and that America should be more like socialist Europe,” the screenshot of the email reads.

“My peers are being brainwashed on a daily basis by Marxist professors who hate America and capitalism,” the email begins, after telling recipients that “donating to the college Republicans is the most effective way to directly impact the future of America.”

“We need your help to stop the brainwashing!” the email implores.

It asks for donations of $25 to “$1000, or more, today.”

It appears to be signed by Tom Ferrall, Chairman of the Ohio Federation of College Republicans.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not a domestic terrorist.

NCRM contacted the College Republican National Committee via email and telephone but did not receive any response by press time.

“The email fit the template for fundraising emails by similar groups,” The Guardian notes.

The Democratic Congresswoman who has emerged as the top target for Republicans denounced the email, noting that she regularly receives death threats but they spike when these types of attacks are waged.

“AOC,” as Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is frequently called, pinned to blame directly on the GOP.

The Ohio College GOP group on Twitter apologized, but did not explain why they sent the email, claiming it was “unauthorized.”

Levinthal notes this is not the only attack on AOC the Ohio College GOP group sent:

Published

Hannity called the Schiff's Intelligence Committee hearings a "phony showtrial" -- despite the reality that an impeachment trial would occur in the GOP-controlled Senate.

Still, Hannity lashed out at the inquiry as "another fraudulent hoax conspiracy theory" and "witch hunt."

Trump thanked, "Sean the amazing warrior!"

Rudy Giuliani harshly mocked after admitting Trump’s guilt in new WSJ column

President Donald Trump's defense attorney took to the pages a Rupert Murdoch's newspaper to make "the case for the impeachment defense" on the eve of televised inquiry hearings.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani lashed out enemies while clinging to conspiracy theories in his Wall Street Journal op-ed.

Giuliani began by attacking the press for reporting on Trump's solicitation of foreign election interference.

"If your only sources of news the past two months have been CNN and MSNBC, you probably think President Trump has committed some heinous act that is deserving of being drawn, quartered and carted out of the White House," Giuliani argued. "That’s a false narrative built on selectively leaked testimony from Rep. Adam Schiff’s closed-door Intelligence Committee hearings."

Published

On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," anchor Chris Cuomo pushed back on GOP lobbyist and American Conservative Union director Matt Schlapp for saying President Donald Trump has the right to fire Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson for transmitting the whistleblower complaint.

"Why would it be okay for the president to go after the inspector general for dealing with the whistleblower?" said Cuomo.

"Because he serves at the pleasure of the president. The president can get rid of them at any time," said Schlapp. "At the State Department during Obama's presidency, during the whole time Hillary was at the State Department, he didn't bother to pick an IG."
