Do you remember that time that Representative Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez was under literal enemy fire in a warzone in Washington, D.C.?
You don’t? That’s because it didn’t happen.
But, even though she wasn’t on Capitol Hill when the Capitol “riots” (which, in actuality, were pretty darn peaceful) happened on January 6, 2021, she is acting like a Vietnam Vet with PTSD (hat tip to here for the lead). The difference, of course, being that a Vietnam Vet actually went through hell and survived while AOC… well… probably drank coffee in her kitchen and called that cowering. Sophia Ankel writes,
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealed Friday she’s attending therapy after the “extraordinarily traumatizing” January 6 Capitol insurrection.
The New York Congresswoman told the public radio show Latino USA that she’s learning how to “slow down” after the attack, which resulted in the deaths of five people including a police officer.
“After the 6th, I took some time and it was really [Rep.] Ayanna Pressley when I explained to her what happened to me, like the day of, because I ran to her office and she was like, ‘you need to recognize trauma’,” Ocasio-Cortez said, according to The Independent.
Notice the biased reporting that says that the Capitol protests “resulted in the deaths of five people.” Really? Four died from health issues, and the last one was unarmed and shot by Capitol Police. How, exactly, did the protests that day result in the death of anyone?
It gets better, though. Ankel continues:
In her interview with Latino USA, Ocasio-Cortez said that the insurrection was deeply traumatizing for many members of Congress, who effectively “served in war.”
Served in war? Seriously? The only war that AOC has been through was in her delusional imagination.
Serving at war is being physical shot at by the communists that AOC keeps propping up in our media and in Congress. Serving at war is putting yourself in physical danger to protect your fellow soldiers or civilians from hostilities. You know, like the hostilities that communists like AOC use to force people to comply with their evil political ideology.
It says a lot about the sad state of people on the left that they think that a peaceful protest was actually a threat to their physical being (and that words are violence), but those same people can’t see the reality that what they advocate has been responsible for more deaths in the last century than any other idea, concept, or ideology.
We’re truly not dealing with rational people when we’re dealing with AOC and company.
