Was this the real deal, or was this high-level trolling by Borat’s sister? And is it right that AOC has publicly called her mentally troubled?
Just yesterday we mentioned that AOC had all but fallen off the radar, being thoroughly upstaged by the more aggressively crazed members of her ‘Squad’ (Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have been in a running gun battle for the negative-press spotlight in that freak show).
Now, with a viral video she’s back in the news.
And this time, Occasional-Cortex isn’t the one supplying the crazy ideas. Her town hall was crashed by a modern-day Jonathan Swift with a ‘Modest Proposal’ on how to solve the Climate Crisis.
She had a shirt made with her slogan and everything. She actually out-hyped AOC herself.
“We only have a few months left!”, she began.
Getting rid of fossil fuels will not help fast enough. A Swedish professor said we can eat dead people, but that won’t help us fast enough.
“I think your next campaign slogan has to be this: we have to start eating babies. We don’t have enough time. There’s too much CO2! All of you, you are pollutants. Too much CO2! We have to start now. Please, you are so great. I’m really happy you are supporting Green New Deal but it’s not enough. You know, even if we were to bomb Russia we still have too many people. Too much pollution. So we have to get rid of the babies. That’s a big problem. Just stopping having babies is not enough. We need to eat the babies.”
(And this particular copy of the clip has a fun comedic twist thrown in at the end whose surprise we won’t spoil here.)
And no, it wasn’t this one:
AOC seems to think this chick was loopy, and that our talking about it is out of bounds.
This person may have been suffering from a mental condition and it’s not okay that the right-wing is mocking her and potentially make her condition or crisis worse. Be a decent human being and knock it off.

Kat Timpf had this reply…
K so if someone acts crazy & references right-wing talking points the Left says it’s NOT just mental illness, it’s GOP talking points?
But when someone acts crazy & references left-wing talking points, the narrative is that it’s purely mental illness? K I think I get it now thx https://t.co/HjcWOjAqT1

We have a different one. This chick *might* have been loopy. Or — if you notice the pre-made shirt that she revealed once she started her spiel, the agreement with (and embellishment of) key AOC talking points (including her public statements about people NOT having children), the Malthusian reference to overpopulation, the dramatic emotional urgency (few months) and the reference to bombing Russia — this might just be Borat-tier trolling.
How is it AOC can jump to conclusions about this chick’s ‘mental health’ without any negative blowback, while Micahel Knowles — who mentioned that it was unfair to a certain sixteen-year-old swedish girl whose own mother detailed known mental health issues in a book about her life to be thrust into the international spotlight and (in his opinion) exploited for political gain?
Was AOC out of line calling this woman ‘in crisis’ simply because she was too thick to get the joke?
How do we know it was probably a beautifully executed trolling? Well, among other things — this line of argument actually fits perfectly with ANOTHER key Democratic talking point…
…abortion on demand and without apology up to — and it seems, even AFTER — the baby has taken its first breath.
Why else would Democrats be so hellbent on opposing any proposal that babies who survive an abortion attempt should be provided proper life-saving medical care?
