In an interview, Trump claimed that AOC reminded him of Eva Peron. Peron’s husband was a nazis sympathizer that helped hide Nazis after WWII. This is not the nicest of comparisons. But for some reason, AOC looks to have taken it as a compliment.
“In an interview with Politico’s Tim Alberta for Alberta’s forthcoming book “American Carnage: On the Front Lines of the Republican Civil War,” Trump claimed he first saw Ocasio-Cortez on television campaigning against then-Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) during the 2018 primary “ranting and raving like a lunatic on a street corner.”
“I called her Eva Perón,” Trump told Alberta. “I said, ‘That’s Eva Perón. That’s Evita.’”
AOC responded to the comment apparently unphased and almost welcoming it.
“I know that, like every woman of the people, I have more strength than I appear to have.”
– Evita Perón
“I had watched for many years and seen how a few rich families held much of Argentina’s wealth and power in their hands. So the government brought in an eight hour working day, sickness pay and fair wages to give poor workers a fair go.”
“Eva Peron, known as Evita, was the second wife of President Juan Peron, and remains a national heroine almost 60 years after she died from cancer.
Hospitals, schools and orphanages were built in poor areas through a foundation she established and she was crucial to her husband’s popularity with the masses.
Mr. Peron helped many Nazis fleeing Europe after the Second World War to find a safe haven in Argentina, including Adolf Eichmann and Josef Mengele.
According to the new book: “It is still suspected that among her [Eva Peron’s] possessions, there were pieces of Nazi treasure, that came from rich Jewish families killed in concentration camps.”
So Evita may have played the part of a humanitarian while in possession of holocaust victim’s treasures. How is AOC ok with this? Maybe this is another case of where she doesn’t know. Like how she used Concentration Camps… On some level, you just hope she is just that oblivious to history. But her indifference is starting to look antisemitic.
