    "This is exactly why people like @aoc are utter hypocritical hacks. They want vigorous opposition, even ride and distributing opposition, but only to THE OTHER SIDE. That guy was an ass, to be sure, but so are most of the loud idiots outside of Kavanaugh's house," replied Pradheep Shanker of National Review. Some pointed out that she had previously defended protests that made people uncomfortable. "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 starts small & grows. To folks who complain protest demands make others uncomfortable... that’s the point," tweeted Ocasio-Cortez in 2020. Democrat Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri took the opposite stance and characterized the catcalling of Ocasio-Cortez as "violence" in a statement on Twitter. "Violence towards women of color in politics is not theoretical: it is real, it is dangerous, and simply not enough is done to keep us safe and alive. Rep. @AOC, I’m sorry. Congress as an institution and...
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) received major pushback on social media for a post she made mocking Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh was dining at Morton's The Steakhouse in downtown Washington on Wednesday night when a group of abortion rights protesters was tipped off on his location, forcing him to exit the restaurant through a back door. Ocasio-Cortez joked that the least the protesters could do was "let him eat cake," a reference to Marie-Antoinette, the queen of France during the French Revolution. "Poor guy," Ocasio-Cortez wrote. "He left before his soufflé because he decided half the country should risk death if they have an ectopic pregnancy within the wrong state lines. It’s all very unfair to him."

    U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was criticized for mocking the alleged harrasment from pro-choice protesters that caused Supreme Court Justic Brett Kavanaugh to flee a D.C. steakhouse.  Kavanaugh, who previously faced an assassination attempt, was having dinner at the Morton's restaurant on Wednesday when activists showed up and told the manager to kick him out, two weeks after he was in the majority that overturned Roe v. Wade, Politco reported.  Poking fun at the situation, the New York Democrat tweeted on Friday: 'Poor guy. He left before his soufflé because he decided half the country should risk death if they have an ectopic pregnancy within the wrong state lines.  'It's all very unfair to him,' Ocasio-Cortez added. 'The least they could do is let him eat cake.'  Although many cheered the congresswoman on, others slammed her for not condemning the protesters and claimed she was spreading false information about ectopic pregnancies.  U.S. Rep.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has finally responded to to Elon Musk after he joked in a tweet that she was 'hitting on him' when she was actually slamming him for 'an explosion of hate crimes' following his purchase of Twitter.   'Like I said, ego problems,' the congresswoman tweeted Saturday morning about 20 hours after Musk's initial tweets. She used a shrugging emoji and quote tweeted the exchange between herself and social media platform's new owner.    On Friday Musk accused AOC flirting with him after she raged that his purchase of Twitter had stoked hate crimes.  'Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy,' he wrote, adding a blushing emoji to go along with it. Musk was replying directly to a tweet sent by the Democrat Representative earlier on Friday, which suggested he'd only bought the platform at the behest of Fox News host Tucker Carlson and his PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel.   Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 32, responded to Elon Musk nearly a day after he accused the congresswoman of hitting on him on Twitter. She replied: 'Like I said, ego problems' 'Like I said, ego...
    Newly sworn-in mayor Eric Adams has hit back at New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for misconstruing comments he made Tuesday about 'low-skilled' workers, accusing the liberal congresswoman of being the 'words police.'   Speaking on CNBC's morning talk program Squawk Box on Wednesday, the new mayor was asked to respond to a tweet by Ocasio-Cortez where the ex-waitress criticized Adams' comments. During a press conference Tuesday, the newly crowned mayor pushed for businesses to get employees back into the office amid the city's recent COVID surge for the sake of their fellow New Yorkers and the city's economy.   'My low-skilled workers, my cooks, my dishwashers, my messengers, my shoe-shine people, those who work at Dunkin' Donuts - they don't have the academic skills to sit in the corner office,' Adams said during the conference, fighting for the city to stay open.  In response Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: 'The suggestion that any job is "low skill" is a myth perpetuated by wealthy interests to justify inhumane working conditions, little/no healthcare, and low wages.' 'Plus being a waitress has made me and many others *better* at our...
    Two members of the Democratic Party ‘squad’ are touting their views in favor of abolishing federal prisons and quashing ‘excessive bail’ just a day after a convicted felon who was out on bail mowed down scores of people with his SUV in suburban Milwaukee, killing five. House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez provoked rage on social media on Monday for demanding answers on ‘excessive bail’ that is imposed by prosecutors in New York City on Monday. Meanwhile, fellow ‘squad’ member House Rep. Rashida Tlaib, the Democrat from Michigan, had trouble explaining her support for a law that would empty federal prisons within a period of 10 years. The comments prompted harsh criticism on Twitter, where people accused the progressive lawmakers of being tone deaf to air their views while the community of Waukesha grieves the loss of life from Sunday’s tragedy. Darrell Brooks Jr, the alleged SUV driver who plowed into a Christmas parade in Waukesha, killing at least five people and injuring 48, was out on $1,000 bail at the time of the tragedy. Brooks has been charged with crimes 16...
    Left-wing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was skewered on social media for showing up to the 2021 $35,000 per ticket Met Gala on Monday wearing an ultra-fancy designer dress with the message “Tax the Rich” emblazoned on the back. “‘Tax the Rich’……But first I’m gonna go have the time of my life partying with them all at the most extravagant over the top party of the year that is essentially a celebration of richness,” reacted Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy. “Tax the Rich”……But first I’m gonna go have the time of my life partying with them all at the most extravagant over the top party of the year that is essentially a celebration of richness. pic.twitter.com/ZkSUnRkqGs — Dave Portnoy (@stoolpresidente) September 14, 2021 “‘Tax the rich’ says AOC’s dress … at the Met Gala … where tickets cost $30,000.

    Democrat Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez made an appearance at the Met Gala wearing a white gown with bright red letters spelling 'TAX THE RICH.'  The congresswoman was photographed in the red carpet of the socialite event in New York City, where tickets are up to $35,000 and tables are $250,000.  AOC wore an off-the-shoulder custom dress, red heels and a bag that also read 'TAX THE reach', designed by creative director Aurora James, ELLE reported. Brothers Vellies, James' luxury brand, is often worn by celebrities such as Beyoncé, Meghan Markle, Zendaya, Rihanna and Lady Gaga, according to the brand's website.  It is AOC'S first time attending the gala, but her political message has already drawn controversy during this year's 'In America: A Lexicon of Fashion' exhibit. It was also James' gala dress debut. James and Ocasio-Cortez said they were inspired by their experiences as working women of color to make the political statement at the Met gala.   Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attends the lavish Met gala wearing a 'TAX THE RICH' dress  AOC has been very vocal in the past about...
    HIGH profile Democratic socialists have been slammed for ignoring Cuban protesters railing against the country's communist dictatorship. Senator Bernie Sanders as well as members of the Squad, including Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib, are to comment after an American flag was flown at demonstrations. 5Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is yet to comment on the protests in CubaCredit: Alamy 5Bernie Sanders has defended some of Fidel Castro policiesCredit: AFP Cuban special forces battered protesters during anti-government marches as thousands took to the streets over Covid chaos and food shortages. The shocking violence erupted at the height of the Communist nation's worst economic crisis since the fall of the Soviet Union amid a record surge in coronavirus infections. But Sanders, who has defended some of Fidel Castro policies, remains silent on Twitter on the issue as of Monday afternoon. He has previously said: "We're very very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but you know, it's unfair to simply say everything is bad. "You know? When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a...
    MORE than 200 rabbis slammed Speaker Nancy Pelosi for failing to punish congresswoman Ilhan Omar over her anti-Israeli remarks. The criticism comes as the Speaker appeared to reward left-wing Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with a role on an economic committee in a bid to relax tensions with members of the so-called Squad. 5More than 200 rabbis called on Nancy Pelosi to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar from her position on the House Foreign Affairs CommitteeCredit: AP 5The religious leaders accused Omar of 'inciting attacks on American Jews'Credit: Reuters The rabbis called on Pelosi to remove Omar from her position on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

"To protect Jewish Americans and moreover, safeguard the integrity of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, we thus insist upon the removal of Rep. Omar from her appointment." The rabbis' added: “Rep.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was accused of wanting to turn NYC into dystopian horror film The Purge after claiming crime could be reduced by axing prisons.    The Democrat Representative - whose district covers part of the Bronx and Queens - claims says more hospital and counseling services to criminals to treat mentally ill criminals could cut violent crime. But her suggestion horrified one other NYC representative. 'If AOC had her way . . . there'd be no jails, no arrests, no police (except her private security). New York City would be turned into a 24/7 movie set for "The Purge,"' Staten Island Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis said in a tweet. 'It's ludicrous to say this at a time when almost every category of major crime is up in our city and criminals are back onto our streets immediately after being arrested to strike again. She has no regard for public safety, no respect for law enforcement and is a hypocrite because she walks around with private security.' In the fictional movie, The Purge, an America wracked by crime and overcrowded prisons, the government...
    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been slammed for saying the 'answer' to tackling New York City's violent crime epidemic is to stop building jails and using them 'as garbage bins for human beings.' The Democratic congresswoman held a press conference Thursday alongside Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Rep. Jamaal Bowman where she spoke about a program introduced in her constituency in the Bronx reducing crime through community outreach.  She blamed the spike in violence on what she called the 'gutting' of the mental health system which has led to greater homelessness and people turning to crime.  New York City is in the grips of a soaring crime wave, with random attacks on the subway becoming a more common occurrence, violent crimes up 30 percent so far in 2021 and 13 people shot over Memorial Day weekend. Police are struggling to tackle the issue and fears are growing that the city is harking back to the dark days of the 70s and 80s when it earned the nickname 'Fear City.'

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was slammed on Twitter after posting a picture of her grandmother’s Hurricane Maria-damaged home in Puerto Rico and appearing to blame former President Donald Trump for the disrepair. “Just over a week ago, my abuela fell ill,” the New York Democrat tweeted Wednesday. “I went to Puerto Rico to see her — my 1st time in a year+ bc of COVID.

    ALEXANDRIA Ocasio-Cortez has been told to "stop whining" after she complained that Derek Chauvin being convicted of all counts in the death of George Floyd "is not justice". The former Minneapolis cop, 44, was found guilty of second and third-degree murder as well as second-degree manslaughter in Hennepin County District Court yesterday, after Floyd died in police custody on May 25, 2020. 9AOC said on Tuesday that Derek Chauvin's conviction was 'not justice'Credit: AFP 9George Floyd was killed by Derek Chauvin during an arrest last MayCredit: Reuters Shortly after the landmark decision was confirmed, AOC penned a stern message to Twitter in which she insisted the verdict "is not a substitute for policy change." "That a family had to lose a son, brother, and father; that a teenage girl had to film and post a murder, that millions across the country had to organize and march just for George Floyd to be seen and valued is not justice," she wrote. The Democratic firebrand later doubled down on her stance during an Instagram live on Tuesday night. “For a lot of...
    A new book, based on interviews with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, claims she mocked rising liberal star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and was furious at The Squad.  Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi and the Lessons of Power, written by USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page, features ten interviews with Pelosi as well as interviews with over 150 friends, family members, and politicians.

    Sen. Ted Cruz slammed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wednesday accusing her of “gaslighting” while discussing her opposition to the talking points used by conservatives to describe the crisis at the border. “Every word of this is false,” the Texas Republican tweeted in response to a clip of Ocasio-Cortez linking the people who are concerned about the situation at the border to white supremacy. ”It IS a #BidenBorderCrisis.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been accused of proposing a 'Ministry of Truth' following her suggestion that a government commission needs to 'reign in' the press in order to stop 'misinformation.' The New York Democrat made the remarks in an Instagram livestream on Tuesday, saying her colleagues in Congress were discussing 'how we rein in our media environment so that you can't just spew disinformation and misinformation.' The comment drew furious backlash from free speech advocates and conservative critics, who accused the self-avowed Democratic Socialist of hatching a dystopian plan to establish government control over news outlets and journalists. 'Let's unpack this proposal, she wants to basically establish a Ministry of Truth -- we've all read '1984' and, you know -- to determine what is truth and what is not. So who sits on this committee exactly?' said Joe Concha, a media columnist for The Hill, in an interview with Fox News.  Rep.

    Media watchdogs are shocked and appalled that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that Congress is looking into media literacy initiatives, including a commission to help "rein in" misinformation in the wake of last week’s deadly breach of the U.S. Capitol – and one critic slammed AOC’s suggestion as "wholly un-American." During a lengthy live stream on Instagram on Tuesday night, the leader of the so-called "Squad" discussed the aftermath of the Capitol riot, how she feared for her life during the chaos and what needs to be done going forward. At one point, Ocasio-Cortez read a question from a viewer who asked if there is discussion in Congress on "truth and reconciliation or media literacy initiatives" to help with healing. AOC SAYS COMMISSION BEING 'DISCUSSED' TO HELP ‘REIN IN’ MEDIA ENVIRONMENT AFTER CAPITOL RIOT "I can say, there is absolutely a commission being discussed but it seems to be more investigatory, in style rather than truth and reconciliation, so I think that’s an interesting concept for us to explore, and I do think that several members of Congress, in some of my discussions, have...
    Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, who famously fist-pumped the crew of insurgents that brought riots to our nation’s capitol on Tuesday, has been the focus of well-deserved heat from the public, as well as from his colleagues. Just a day later, Hawley’s former mentor and champion claims their relationship is the “biggest mistake” of his life. The Kansas City Star’s editorial board puts direct responsibility on Hawley’s shoulders for the bloodshed during Wednesday’s coup d’etat attempt on the legislature, writing that he has “blood on his hands.”  Later on Thursday, activists began pressuring publisher Simon & Schuster, demanding it cut ties with the only other senator to be considered as loathsome as Sen. Ted Cruz. Within hours, Simon & Schuster did cut ties and cancel publication of The Tyranny of Big Tech—in direct response to public outcry, if you believe Hawley himself, who cried a big crybaby fit in a tweet he called his “statement on the woke mob at @simonschuster.” In a screenshot, Hawley wrote, “This could not be more Orwellian. Simon & Schuster is canceling my contract because I was representing my constituents, leading a debate on the Senate floor...
    State Democratic Party chairman Jay Jacobs ripped into Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wednesday over disappointing results in key New York battleground congressional and legislative races last week. Jacobs, who also serves as the Nassau County Democratic leader, said he’s had it with AOC and other left-wingers lecturing Democrats who have to fight to compete and win races in purple districts in Long Island and upstate. “AOC has no standing on how to run a general election in the suburbs and upstate. AOC is in a district that’s 6-1 Democrat and she couldn’t find a Republican in her district with binoculars,” Jacobs told The Post. AOC HITS BACK AFTER TOP DEM REPORTEDLY ASKS ‘DO WE WANT TO GOVERN, OR DO WE WANT TO BE INTERNET CELEBRITIES?’ “I invite AOC to come to Long Island and stand for election in one of our districts. You’ll see different results,” Jacobs said. Ocasio-Cortez, who represents portions of The Bronx and Queens in the 14th congressional district, easily won re-election to a second term over Republican challenger John Cummings last week.
    Star of the progressive left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has come under fire for withdrawing from an event commemorating late-Israeli Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin, including by Rabin’s own granddaughter who accused the Democratic senator of surrendering to populism. “After all, it was my late grandfather Itzhak Rabin, who said: You make peace with your enemies- not with your friends. Due to this brave historical act he was assassinated. But off course populism is easier,” Noa Rothman wrote on Twitter.

    A new bill from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that aims to address the future of Puerto Rico’s territory status is being slammed by a fellow Puerto Rican House Democrat from New York. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) introduced a bill Tuesday with Rep. Nydia Velázquez (D-NY) offering an unconventional approach for Puerto Rico to decide on its sovereign status: through a convention. AOC, who is of Puerto Rican descent, and Velázquez, who was born in Puerto Rico, explained in an op-ed published by NBC News that the legislation “would prompt Puerto Rico’s Legislature to create a Status Convention whose delegates would be elected by Puerto Rican voters. “This body would develop a long-term solution for Puerto Rico’s status, be that statehood, independence, free association or any option other than the current territorial arrangement,” the two lawmakers added. Rep. José E.
