Was AOC drunk-tweeting on Sunday night?!

In an unhinged tweet on Sunday night, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) insists that the riot in D.C. on January 6 was not just a “threat to democracy” but a “terrorist attack” and says that any GOP members of Congress involved should be expelled.

She then bizarrely claimed that “almost 10” people died as a result of the riot. WHAT?!

She tweeted, “Any member of Congress who helped plot a terrorist attack on our nation’s capitol must be expelled. This was a terror attack. 138 injured, almost 10 dead. Those responsible remain a danger to our democracy, our country, and human life in the vicinity of our Capitol and beyond.”

So, let’s analyze AOC’s tweet here… she’s saying that the riot made up of a lot of unarmed retirees as well as an unknown number of FBI informants and operatives, where the worst charges appear to be trespassing on federal property, was a “terror attack” on the Capitol. That’s what she’s going with? Interesting.

What the hell does that make the Antifa attacks on federal buildings in Portland that have been going on night after night? Does she think that we need to go after the radicals in Oregon that have literally tried to set fire to buildings with people inside… at least a couple of times? Because in the leftwing “defund the police” dystopia that is Portland, that’s just not happening.

But let’s get back to AOC’s weird tweet…

The Congresswoman from New York’s 14th District then goes on to say that any member of Congress involved should be expelled because they are a threat to, well, everyone and everything. She then says that 138 people were injured and “almost 10 died.”

The ClashDaily editorial team isn’t exactly sure how 10 people “almost died” during the riot, but that doesn’t hold a candle to the injured and dead from the numerous BLM riots after the death of George Floyd and the rampant destruction of businesses that followed it. Frankly, it’s still an unknown death toll because the Corporate Media doesn’t want you to know how many people were killed during those riots.

The only person that died as a result of violence during the January 6 riot was unarmed Trump supporter, Ashli Babbitt who was shot by Capitol Police Officer Lt. Michael Byrd, whose only punishment was an interview with Lester Holt.

Who are the “almost 10” people that AOC is tweeting about, and what was their political affiliation? She couldn’t be referring to Officer Brian Sicknick since the medical examiner has concluded that he died of natural causes.

Is she talking about the Trump supporters that were injured as a result of Capitol Police getting aggressive?

Incidents like this one:

WATCH: Did A Capitol Police Officer PUSH A Man Climbing Up The Capitol On Jan 6?

Because if she is, then her outrage is misplaced.

But then, Congresswoman “Defund the Police” is fine with Capitol Police because they protect her and she’s much more important than the plebs.

She certainly believes that she’s more important than the GOP politicians that were out there on January 6 protesting the way that Democrats used the pandemic to relax voting rules that made so many on the right question the integrity of the election.

It’s a bit rich for AOC to demand that they be expelled for expressing a political view up on Capitol Hill, though.

I’m old enough to remember when she was encouraging the astroturf Sunrise Movement and the minor children they brought along with them when they were “occupying” Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office in 2018.

The Western Journal’s headline was, “Ocasio-Cortez, Activists Occupy Nancy Pelosi’s Office and Start Making Demands.” AOC had just been elected weeks before.

Here is AOC talking about it to Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes.

She was praised for “standing with the people” by leftwing activist groups and she started grabbing headlines and became a Corporate Media darling.

So, if a bunch of unarmed people going into the Capitol and walking around is an “insurrection” then what is it if you occupy the office of the Speaker of the House and demand that she agree with you or you won’t leave?

Should we go after AOC for her “insurrectionist” activities in 2018?

Of course not. That’s not an insurrection. It’s a bunch of boorish activists who want to get media attention for their cause… and it worked.

Now she’s calling her political opponents who did the same thing “terrorists.”

But hey, it’s not like she has to be “precisely, factually, semantically correct”, right?

AOC was blasted on Twitter for the ridiculous “almost 10” statement by a whole lot of people. Two blue-check responses are worth noting.

The serious one was by Glenn Greenwald who called her out on the disingenuous framing.

The other (some would say less serious) response was by radio host Jesse Kelly who thinks that there is another reason that AOC wrote the tweet.
