Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is making delusional statements in order to gain sympathy.
The claims she’s making are completely baseless.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealed a fear completely divorced from reality.
During the January 6th riot Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t even in the Capitol.
She was in the Cannon building which is across the street from the Capitol.
At the time Ocasio-Cortez claimed that she feared for her life.
Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., told Fox News at the time that while she felt afraid no rioter ever came near.
“My office is two doors down from AOC. Not at one moment during the events of Jan. 6 did any rioter or any insurrectionist come down the hallways where our offices are located. I initially took to task to the press [for] taking these claims to apocalyptic levels.” Mace stated.
Mace also accused Ocasio-Cortez of “politicizing events to her advantage.”
Months later Ocasio-Cortez’s fears of the event have only risen.
She told CNN’s Dana Bash on “Newsroom” that she feared being raped on January 6th because “white supremacy and patriarchy are very linked.”
When asked about January 6, Ocasio-Cortez said, “I think one of the reasons why that impact was so doubled that day is because of the misogyny and the racism that is so deeply rooted and animated that attack on Capitol.”
She continued, “You know white supremacy and patriarchy are very linked in a lot of ways. There is a lot of sexualizing of that violence. I didn’t think that I was just going to be killed. I thought other things were going to happen to me as well.”
Bash said, “So it sounds like what you’re telling me is that you didn’t only think that you were going to die, you thought you were going to be raped?”
Ocasio-Cortez said, “Yeah. yeah, I thought I was.”
It’s clear that Ocasio-Cortez is willing to use her exaggerated experiences as a political attack when needed.
Later in January Ocasio-Cortez accused Sen. Ted Cruz of trying to have her “murdered.” Presumably because Cruz wanted further investigation before certifying the election through due process.
When Cruz agreed with Ocasio-Cortez on a specific issue she responded that she’s “happy to work w/almost any other GOP” member but not Cruz.
“You almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out,” she wrote. “In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign.”
Ocasio-Cortez continued “We need accountability and that includes a new Senator from Texas,” she said, before blaming him for not apologizing for the “serious physical + mental harm” he “contributed to.”
Cruz responded that the “partisan anger” was “not healthy.”
