AOC Embraces Comparison to Historical Figure Accused of Helping Nazis

Recently, an excerpt from an upcoming book revealed that President Trump allegedly compared Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Eva Perón, the former First Lady of Argentina who has been declared to be a Nazi sympathizer.

“I called her Eva Perón. I said, ‘That’s Eva Perón, that’s Evita,” the book claims Trump said upon witnessing Ocasio-Cortez.

Eva Perón, also known as “Evita,” helped usher in socialism to the Argentine economy, and has been described as having sympathy for former Nazis.

Upon learning of the remark, Ocasio-Cortez took to social media to quote Perón, apparently unaware or unconcerned with her unscrupulous reputation in the US.

Per Townhall, 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.

However, 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.

… “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.

Per DailyWire, The Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) noted that Eva Perón “demagogued her way to a cult following among those who depended on the favors she dispensed and stepped on anyone who stood in her way. A law which obstructed her ambitions was, in her view, a law to be bent or broken. Any fair assessment of her must note that she delivered numerous vapid harangues and gave away lots of other people’s money, but she never invented, created or built anything.”

Needless to say, the controversial Congresswoman’s quote did not sit well with conservatives on social media.
