Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should immediately resign from Congress.

It turns out that her drama-filled claim in an Instagram broadcast that she feared for her life---and blamed rightist extremists--did not actually occur.

She made it all up.

It should not come as a surprise. As I have pointed out many times, the Left is all about gaining power "by any means necessary."  Lying and severe distortions are in their toolbox.

This is a developing story. Return to this post for updates. 



RW note: There is a tunnel that is regularly used by representatives to travel between the Cannon Building and the Capitol but it is quite a distance. 

The point is that although AOC may have felt threatened, she was far away from the action. In other words, at best, she displayed that she was a weak frightened leader who can be easily scared and will lie about her situation even after the facts emerge. At worst, she is a conniver using any opportunity through distortions and lies to advance socialism. 


Here is Newsweek's initial report on AOC's lie:
Ocasio-Cortez said that rioters actually entered her office, forcing her to take refuge inside her bathroom after her legislative director Geraldo Bonilla-Chavez told her to “hide, hide, run and hide.”

“And so I run back into my office,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I slam my door. There’s another kind of like back area to my office, and I open it, and there’s a closet and a bathroom. And I jump into my bathroom.”


From Red State:

 According to Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), who has an office in the same hall as AOC, two doors away, there were never any rioters in their hall so there was never any physical danger from rioters coming in at any point.

  1. They'll talk about it on Fox News, but the rest of the media landscape will be predictably quiet about the whole thing.

  2. This is going to be like watching the dorks in high-school trying to get the cool kid busted for something. The dorks have the facts, and they actually think that's what matters, because they're dorks. The cool kids won't sweat it for a second, because they're cool. And the teachers? They always thought the dorks were obnoxious, and they enjoy watching them pull their hair out over the things the cool kids get away with. It makes the teachers feel cool. They remember being dorks themselves, and they sure ain't going back to that.

    1. I think you've nailed it. Lies are a flex. Hypocrisy is propaganda, designed to humiliate, and to make it clear who's in charge around here.

  3. I mean the woman lies on a routine basis about economics, the market, systemic racism, climate change, etc. Why would categorically lying about this change anything. I can already see the media narrative:

    "Some might call Representative Cortez's claims hyperbolic or even a fabrication. However, her critics fail to recognize the underlying danger the representatives from Congress were after rioters stormed the capitol after attending a rally held by former President Donald Trump where he incited the rioters to action. Her reaction to the riots were very justified. After all these were crazed right wingers who were attempting an insurrection to overturn the election results. Even if they weren't directly in her location the threats she felt from them were very real and it's not in any way unreasonable for her to assume that they were at her office in an attempt to do harm to her. After all she's helping to set the Democratic agenda and whether it be her calls for universal Healthcare or the Green New Deal, Representative Cortez has proven she's not afraid to take necessary action for the betterment of the average American. So it should be no surprise that she assumed she could have been targeted as she is frequently attacked by right wing commentators for her viewpoints. It's clear that it's not Representative Cortez's beliefs that are to blame, but right wing hostility to the Congresswoman's legislative proposals for the current political climate. Now more than ever we must rally behind the Congresswoman to ensure that there is unified support to help push a more equitable future."

  4. Nice gesture Nancy Mace. Many of us knew she was lying but when a colleague confirms it ... so much sweeter
