Default Ocasio-Cortez says she has Jewish roots during Hanukah celebration

https://nypost.com/2018/12/10/ocasio...h-celebration/

Wow, if that ain't pandering, I don't know what is. This woman has been an ongoing source of entertainment.

I suppose we all could claim roots in just about any nationality, if we want to go back 500 years. Proving it may be a little difficult, as Ms. Warren has discovered.

“But to be Puerto Rican is to be the descendant of: African Moors & slaves, Taino Indians, Spanish colonizers, Jewish refugees, and likely others. We are all of these things and something else all at once – we are Boricua,” she wrote, referring to the colloquial term for Puerto Ricans.
Similar to my own mother's ancestors.
What is wrong with seeing others as a 'we' instead of a 'them' ?

Sometimes bad press is better than no press and you all are giving this woman what she wants. She appeals to the moocher and thief class of society IE socialist scum.

I don't see a 'we' versus a 'them'. I also don't pander to certain groups to make myself feel 'included'.

My ancestry is just that, people who came before me. My nationality is American, though my ancestry is a Heinz 57, including Judaism on my mother's side.

It doesn't create, nor change who I am. I create who I am.

And don't forget about your small percentage of African there Sister. With a roster like yours you could be POTUS, if you were a hardcore leftist of course.

You kind of agree with Cortez then:

"...Puerto Ricans in general are a mix of cultures that include “Jewish refugees and likely others.”

“Before everyone jumps on me – yes, culture isn’t DNA,” she tweeted.

“But to be Puerto Rican is to be the descendant of: African Moors & slaves, Taino Indians, Spanish colonizers, Jewish refugees, and likely others. We are all of these things and something else all at once – we are Boricua,” she wrote, referring to the colloquial term for Puerto Ricans.
