As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following opinion editorial written by Tom Rogan and published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., may be the heroine of the Democratic Party’s left, but she needs to read more history.
She recently compared her “Green New Deal” to the Allied victory in World War II, which perhaps evokes the amusing image of her leading George Patton’s 3rd Army or the 6th Marine Division in an effort to stop the forces of genocide — er, climate change. Or something.
But it gets worse. Last weekend, Ocasio-Cortez added another feather to her cap by declaring that President Trump’s border wall is a new Berlin Wall. She gets it exactly backward.
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says the wall is “a moral abomination. I think it’s like the Berlin wall”

Rogan slammed Ocasio-Cortez’s historical ignorance, and said her comparison of these two walls “draws attention to an aspect of socialism” that she should find embarrassing. He added:
The Berlin Wall prevented individuals living under socialist tyranny from realizing the offer of a life in freedom in West Germany. At a basic level, for Trump’s wall to be anything like the Berlin Wall, it would have to be garrisoned by armed guards who fired at Americans trying to accept an explicit invitation from Mexico to cross the border.
No, AOC, our border wall is not like the Berlin Wall because it wasn’t built to imprison Americans https://t.co/q2v20UDTXK
