Ocasio-Cortez: Social Media Are A Public Health Risk To Everybody

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has been dubbed the Beyoncé of politics, could follow in the footsteps of Jeremy Corbyn after being invited to speak by festival organisers. She has received particular attention for her use of Instagram live to maintain a relatable personna, as thousands of viewers join her live videos to watch her eat ice cream on the floor of her apartment on her Instagram story, or share tips on her skin care as reported by Vox.

Ocasio-Cortez is one of a number of freshman lawmakers who have questioned traditional Democratic support for Israel.

"Nearly 3,000 Americans lost their lives to Islamic terrorists on 9/11, yet Omar diminishes it as: 'Some people did something.' Democrat leaders need to condemn her brazen display of disrespect", she said. "Almost every time this uncalled for rhetoric gets blasted by conserv. grps, we get a spike in death threats to refer to Capitol Police". A separate Pew Research survey found that 74 percent of USA adult Facebook users have done one of the following: changed their privacy settings, taken a break from the platform or deleted it.

Earlier this month, Pelosi also appeared to take a subtle swipe at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez while discussing members of Congress with large Twitter followings. "She's good for our ratings". "Do you believe this should affect US policy to the state of Israel?" co-host Michael Isikoff asked. Ocasio-Cortez was referencing the New York Post's recent front page.

Netanyahu, who was prime minister from 1996 to 1999 and has been again since 2009, was reelected last week after announcing plans to formally annex Jewish settlements on the West Bank - part of the territory seized by Israel in the 1967 Six-Day War - where Palestinians hope to establish their own state.

Their latest spat concerns Omar's remarks about the treatment of American Muslims since the September 2001 terror attacks on NY and Washington.

Omar first came under fire for tweeting in 2012 that "Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel".

"You want to tell people that their concern and their desire for clean air and clean water is elitist?" said Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.
