Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Cheers on Bodega Boycott of New York Post Over 9/11 Front Page
Mediaite ^ | APRIL 13, 2019 8:26pm | Aidan McLaughlin

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) applauded the boycott of The New York Post being organized by corner stores in the city following the tabloid’s front page cover calling out Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her comments about 9/11.

Omar has faced criticism this week for comments she made at a speech in March, notably from colleague Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) and President Donald Trump.

“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,” she said, in comments that her critics said minimized the terror attacks.

The Post was scathing in its criticism of the congresswoman, slapping a photo of the attacks on its front page this week along with the headline: “Here’s your something… 2,977 people dead by terrorism.”

In response to the controversial cover, the Yemeni American Merchants Association (YAMA) announced a boycott of the Post, for what defenders of Omar decried as encouraging anti-Muslim sentiment.

As Blaze Media writes, So does this count as a war on the press, too? Or is that only for Republicans?

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Two years ago, Bodega owners across NYC (& cheered by neighbors)shut their shops citywide to protest Trump’s #MuslimBan.

Today, that same community is banding together to reject sales of the NY Post at bodegas citywide.

This is what real unity (& NYC solidarity) looks like ⬇️ https://t.co/mj8vtA4Pv5— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 13, 2019


Yemeni Americans held a 1,000 bodega strike against the #MuslimBan, tonight we just declared a boycott of the racist NY Post! Starting tomorrow morning Yemeni American merchants will be rejecting the sale of the NY Post! NY Post take your papers back! #BoycottNYPost pic.twitter.com/dhAPR6eAzn— Dr.Debbie Almontaser (@DebbiAlmontaser) April 13, 2019

CAIR has never cared about the liberties of “all of us”.

Because you know the scope of this “boycott” and because newspaper sales keep a company going these days.

I didn’t even KNOW they still sold newspapers.

Everyone take a pill.

Hopefully all FReepers in New York will go out and buy a NY Post.

There’s 1000 muslim owned stores in New York City that just stopped carrying the NYPost until they apologize for showing the actual facts of the destruction of the world trade center in the VERY CITY where the WTC towers fell.

I think its blatantly obvious what the scope of this boycott is and if you continue to bury your head in the sand to the open insurrection occurring in this country than you’re part of the problem.

Wake up pal.

Wonder what the 15% or so people eligible to vote who voted AOC into office think of her now.

This woman has become nothing more than a Kim Kardashian version of Washington.

No no not like Kim Kardashian who is a money grubbing airhead.
Rather, a fifth columnist for America’s destruction, just like Tokyo Rose.

She should be kicked out of her seat too.

Any New Yorker who loves America should boycott every one of these stores.

The NY Post will be fine.

You guys become a joke when you blow stuff up when you live 2000 miles away in some hick village.

If you lived there you should know the Post is still sold. It is also sold all across the country.

Is there a LIST of these Yemeni bodegas? Because they are a hell of a lot of construction workers, electricians, plumbers, cops, fireman and EMS workers who spend a TON of money at bodegas, who would really like that list — so they never spend a dollar there again.
