Fact-Checking The Nonsensical Ramblings Of Congresswoman AOC

Written by Andrew Linn on February 15, 2021

Here is a list of quotes by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a.k.a. AOC:

“I don’t want to hear these coup-supporting GOP talk about “blue lives” ever again. They never cared about safety.  Never cared about “law & order.”  And certainly do not care for democracy.  This isn’t complicated. You’re with the people and support democracy, or you’re with the mob and are caping for white supremacists. It’s pretty clear cut.”

So what is she going to do if a Republican (presumably a Republican member of Congress) does talk about blue lives?  Have them censured?  Have them expelled from Congress?  It turns out Republicans do care about safety and law & order.  And perhaps AOC needs to be reminded that the United States is a republic, not a democracy.  And contrary to popular belief, it is not the people (or in AOC’s view, the leftists) versus the white supremacists.

“There’s no debate as to whether we should continue producing fossil fuels. There’s no debate, we should not.  Every single scientific consensus points to that.”

No, every scientific consensus does not point to that.  And the production of fossil fuels has not contributed to climate change.  Solar activity has.

“We talk about existential threats, the last time we had a really major existential threat to this country was around World War II, and so we’ve been here before and we have a blueprint of doing this before.”

Has she forgotten about the Cold War, especially the days of the Cuban Missile Crisis (when the world came close to nuclear war)?   But then again she is a leftist, so the Cold War would not count as an existential threat.

(regarding the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6): “All of a sudden I hear, boom, boom, boom, boom on my door. And then I hear these huge violent bangs on my door, and then on every door going into my office. Just, bang bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang. Like, someone was trying to break the door down. And um, there were no voices; there were no yells … no one identifying themselves. And just, boom, boom, boom. And I just get up … and I run over to the legislative office.  I start opening the door to my bathroom, and I’m gonna run across to the closet. …  And I hear that whoever was trying to get inside, got into my office. And then I realize that it’s too late for me to get into the closet. So I go back in, I hide back in … and then I just start to hear these yells of, ‘Where is she? Where is she?’ And I just thought to myself, they got inside. And so, I hide behind my door. … This was the moment where I thought everything was over.”

It turns out the man looking for her was a Capitol Police Officer.  And AOC was not in the Capitol Building, but instead was in the Cannon House Office Building, where the rioters were not headed to.  Thus, she was not in any danger.  So the entire was an exaggeration.

I wonder, has anyone come up with a psychological profile for AOC given her remarks and views?
