usually when she says patently untrue, misleading or just plain ignorant, I just chalk it up to her youth, inexperience and stupidity. Not so easy to do with this deliberate fabrication.
In recent days the rhetoric from Ocasio-Cortez has ramped up, culminating in a wild accusation that Senator Ted Cruz “almost had [her] murdered 3 weeks ago.” That, of course, was another falsehood. And the internet decided enough was enough. Fisking the Ocasio-Cortez narrative, reporters such as Nick Arama at RedState and Jack Posobiec at One America News went over the patchy details released by “AOC” over a number of tweets, interviews, and Instagram live sessions. ‘What Happened at the Capitol.’ In a stream watched by hundreds of thousands of people, the Congresswoman from New York linked a historical experience with sexual assault to what happened at the Capitol on January 6th. While no one doubted her sexual assault story, nor would wish that experience on anyone, the link to January 6th made many scratch their heads. She described – in drastic contrast to how others in her own office building reacted – a scene in which she hid in her office toilet, peering through a door as a man in a black beanie looked for her calling out, “Where is she?” “I just thought to myself, ‘They got inside,’” she said, adding: “I thought I was going to die… This is the moment where I thought, ‘Everything is over.” The melodrama continued: “I have never been quieter in my entire life. When he came in, it didn’t feel right because he was looking at me with a tremendous amount of anger and hostility — and things weren’t adding up. There was no partner there and no one was yelling, he wasn’t yelling like, ‘this is Capitol police, this is Capitol police.’” But AOC’s report is challenged by a wealth of evidence against her.AOC’s “Big Lie.”
