Falwell’s comment was not stated during CPAC; it was stated in 2015, in reference to the radical Islamic terrorist attack in San Bernadino, California.

But that’s ok, because, you know, like, um, you don’t have to be, you know, precisely, factually, and semantically correct.

Via Breitbart.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) attacked Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. with false information Tuesday.

“‘I always thought that if more good people had concealed carry permits, then we could end these Muslims before they [unintelligible].’ This was just this weekend at CPAC, the conference attended by the President and members, to 1000s. Where’s the resolution against Islamophobia?” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said, retweeting a video of Jerry Falwell Jr. from an activist….

The clip is not from CPAC, as Ocasio-Cortez claims, but is from December 2015, immediately after a radical Islamic terrorist attack in San Bernadino, California….

Ocasio-Cortez offered a partial correction, but has not deleted her original tweet….

    Is this a distraction? Are the Dems hiding something?

    Feelings over facts. It’s the liberal way, just as symbolism over substance has been their mantra.

    Op-ed was just published in World Net Daily on, Don’t buy Girl Scout cookies because GS have become too Progressive. Mentions AOC as one of the new Progs. in Congress. Well, the liberals are going to town on Social Media about conservative going after GS in order to get AOC.
    If conservatives think personalizing Progressives is an effective approach a la Alinsky, No, it’s not. Stop tying the new progressive socialist to whatever you’re criticizing. It energizes the Left and the legacy media to get the upper hand.

    FWIW: Falwells seem to be an attractive target for the Left. James Comey wrote his 1982 Religious Studies thesis at William and Mary college on; Reinhold Niebuhr and Jerry Falwell; the Christian in politics.
