Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez forgot to mention one important fact that changed everything.
A Republican Congresswoman had to set the record straight.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez grabbed media sympathy with this manipulative lie.
In an Instagram Live stream Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gave an emotional recital of what happened the day of the Capitol Hill riot
She said multiple times that she feared for her life on Jan. 6, as a result of a “very close encounter.”
The only problem is that she wasn’t actually in the Capitol building, she was in her office which is located in the Cannon building, which is part of the Capitol complex but is 0.3 miles away from the Capitol building.
Newsweek, without a shred of journalist integrity, wrote “Ocasio-Cortez said that rioters actually entered her office, forcing her to take refuge inside her bathroom.”
Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) who has an office in the same hall as Ocasio-Cortez set the record straight.
“[Ocasio-Cortez] made clear she didn’t know who was at her door,” the Republican wrote on Twitter, captioning a post from Newsweek. “Breathless attempts by media to fan fictitious news flames are dangerous.”
“My office is 2 doors down,” Mace continued. “Insurrectionists never stormed our hallway. Egregious doesn’t even begin to cover it. Is there nothing MSM (mainstream media) won’t politicize?”
This led to “Alexandria Ocasio-Smollett” and “AOC Lied” trending on Twitter.
Ocasio-Cortez then attacked Mace for what she said.
“All I can think of w/ folks like her dishonestly claiming that survivors are exaggerating are the stories of veterans and survivors in my community who deny themselves care they need & deserve bc they internalize voices like hers saying what they went through ‘wasn’t bad enough’” Ocasio Cortez responded.
“Hold up” Mace said to Ocasio-Cortez. “You seem to be triggered by facts so let me be clear:”
“I have not ONCE discounted your experience. It was harrowing for all of us.”
“FACT: Insurrectionists weren’t in our hallways. It’s your eagerness to politicize absolutely ANYTHING that deserves condemnation.”
Of course the mainstream media want to take all of Ocasio-Cortez’s fears as seriously as possible and treat her as a victim.
Ocasio-Cortez said anyone stating facts that don’t agree with her narrative are akin to people who discount survivors.
But Ocasio-Cortez had no such sympathy for the victims of the Black Lives Matter protests that caused billions of dollars in damage and killed over 20 people.
In Richmond Virginia BLM protests blocked firefighters who were trying to save a child in a burning apartment building during the summer.
Yet Ocasio-Cortez stated the following about the riots.
“The whole point of protesting is to make ppl uncomfortable. Activists take that discomfort w/ the status quo & advocate for concrete policy changes. Popular support often start small & grows. To folks who complain protest demands make others uncomfortable… that’s the point.”
