Dems: Occupy cities, just not my Capitol office
To the editor:
The Democratic Party set a new bar for hypocrisy this week. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Wednesday Jan. 13 in her interview with NPR (https://www.npr.org/sections/trump-impeachment-effort-live-updates/2021/01/13/956398483/many-of-us-narrowly-escaped-death-rep-ocasio-cortez-recounts-capitol-insurrectio) expressed her fears of being physically harmed during the Capitol protests of Jan. 6. At the same time, she expanded on the daily narrative that all white people are racists by claiming her coworkers in congress were white supremacists and supported QAnon. She claimed these very scary white people made her feel unsafe in the extraction zone within the Capital building.
AOC’s brown shirt fascist thugs terrorized many cities in this country for months enabled and emboldened by the media and the Democratic Party. For two hours AOC experienced life for those people trapped in occupy zones surrounded by thugs looting stores, assaulting police officers, defacing public property and torching buildings. It seems she didn’t like it.
The indignation expressed by congressional leaders is beyond the pale. They stood silent and complicit for months while countless cities were trashed, personal freedom assaulted and businesses burned. The message is clear from Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer as well as the junior socialist wing of the party, you can occupy Seattle, you can occupy Portland, but don’t you dare occupy my office.
Every carefully orchestrated sound bite conveyed to and amplified by the media continues to pour gasoline on the fire raging in this country. The lack of leadership, rational thought and integrity within the Democratic Party is stunning.
