AOC had previously stated that she feared for her life during the incident, even though she was in a separate office building across a road from the Capitol. Asked on the show about January 6, AOC 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.”
CNN’s Dana Bash asked specifically if AOC thought she was going to be raped, and Ocasio-Cortez replied, “Yeah. yeah, I thought I was.”
The narrative the left has concocted about the purported “insurrection” just keeps getting blown more and more out of proportion. Now AOC has demonized the FBI-entrapped Trump supporters of January 6 as murdering, raping racists. Shame on her.
