College GOP group apologizes for email calling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a "domestic terrorist"

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez admits Facebook was "crucial" to her political campaign, but says she's not only quitting the platform, she's starting a campaign against it and other social media sites.

"Another hope would maybe be Jon Snow and Daenerys [Targaryen] just take the whole thing and they build a second [throne]", she said.

The congresswoman was responding to his criticism of Ilhan Omar, saying that he was using the quotes out of context to create a negative response and suggesting he doesn't do enough to fight terrorism.

Both characters mentioned by Ocasio-Cortez are part of a dynastic lineage that was overthrown in the years prior to the events of the show.

"Here's the truth. For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I'm exhausted of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be exhausted of it. CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties".

"So here you go, you guys are breaking news".

"I don't think it's out of line to simply call that out and criticize it". "That's not what happened and we should come together and take note of that".

"This is a really dishonest attack and let me tell you how I am for 9/11 victims and 9/11 first responders. @GOP, what's it going to take to stop?", she added.

"What Pelosi just said, she should tell her freshman members Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar and say we are here to work and not to tweet", Continetti said. "There's an emotional element to that, but I don't want to go back". "So to say that kind of attack, that is the height of partisanship and I'm really disappointed in them saying that, especially coming from NY".
