Cruz vs. AOC Feud Escalates, Cruz says “Unless they are genocidal, calling your political opponents Nazis is atrocious”

The Twitter feud between Republican Senator Ted Cruz and Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to escalate.

It began when Cruz tweeted:

Really sad. At a time of deep national division, President-elect Biden’s choice to call his political opponents literal Nazis does nothing to bring us together or promote healing.

This kind of vicious partisan rhetoric only tears our country apart.

AOC replied:

They wore Auschwitz shirts, erected gallows, and tried to hang the Vice President.

Your continued excusal and denial of Wednesday’s Neo-Nazi presence is abhorrent and dangerous.

The most healing and unifying thing *you* can do is take responsibility for your actions and resign.

She added:

Your GOP colleague in the House praised Hitler this week. A Confederate flag was hung outside the Museum of Jewish Heritage. Yet you continue to deny this clear connection in the aftermath of Wednesday’s violence.

You disgrace yourself and your office further every day. Resign.

Cruz replied:

Epic hypocrisy. Facts:

1) Nazis are evil bigots.

2) You & your anti-Israel pals blocked a resolution condemning antisemitism—which I passed unanimously in the Senate.

3) Unless they are genocidal, calling your political opponents Nazis is atrocious.

AOC replied:

[email protected] again, you are lying.

Pull the Clerk record. I proudly voted for the resolution against antisemitism you cite.

Your statements are growing increasingly erratic and unfounded in fact.

I do not call all my opponents Nazis. But rest assured, Neo-Nazis are my opponents.

Cruz replied:

Not true. The “record” you cite is the show vote on the watered-down House resolution AFTER you BLOCKED the resolution condemning antisemitism. See:

You support BDS. And you demand candidates promise NOT to visit Israel:
